Occupy Cincinnati protesters think arrests imminent | Cincinnati.com | cincinnati.com

I hope this situation doesn't spiral out of control like it has in other cities, particularly Boston, Washington, Seattle and Des Moines, among other places. The Cincinnati police have handled this situation perfectly so far. But it's clear that these protesters have no intention of paying their daily $105 fines for staying illegally in Piatt Park after 11 p.m.

I agree with many of the grievances of these protesters, but what I have a real problem with is that all they have is complaints...no solutions, no alternatives. It's easier to identify problems and say you don't like the way things are than it is to fix them, and so far not one "occupier" that I have heard has been able to articulate any plan to solve anything. I say, go home, grab a bath and come back when you have a plan of action.

I wish they'd just say "We want the government to restore the income tax structure to what it was during the Eisenhower Administration." That'd certainly be good enough for me.

I thought these protests were not really sparking debate, and when police officers were ordering them to leave, they did so. Guess things have changed in the past few days. Portland seems to really be having issues with protestors.

39% of the Wall Street mob sees no difference between Al Queda and the US government. That's all I need to know about the pathetic losers.

Are you referencing the protesters or the Wall Street Establishment?

That is a pretty good response. About what you would expect from any man-on-the-street interview. It is just amazing this country maintains any sort of a reasonable ernvironment given the general lack of intelliegence among its citizens.
