There we have it! All the hypocrisy of this so-called "revolution" unmasked.

You have a 5.5K laptop and claim yourself to be a 99%er? Let me laugh! With that kind of cash you easily fit into the 1/10th of the population who own over 300 trillion dollars in personal wealth.

Go home and cry over Steve Jobs's tombstone you rich bastard.

Yep $5,500 for one laptop. Poverty level for one person, $10,890.

Grigou, do you post anything other than sarcasm hoping to get your point across. It fails, and its boring. Try being less reactive, you might become more creative.

I have no use for creativity. I choose to remain narrow-minded like 99% of this forum. We are, after all, the 99%.

Except for that chick with the laptop. Clearly a 1%er.

It's not police "brutality", it's our society's finest members doing their mere job: repressing the masses and protecting the rulers. Also known as the rule of law or the violence monopole. Look it up.

Plus, all those hippy yupsters who have rich parents can learn a lesson from this.

The top 1% income level is somewhere north of $380,000. I assure you it is quite easy to afford a top-of-the-line Macbook on half that, a mere $190,000 per year, even if you live in NYC. So yes, 5.5K laptop guy could have been a 99%.

I just came back from occupy wall street with my brother. I was dressed in a Bernie Madoff mask and Che Guevara shirt and explaning the history of these two men and why I wore what I wore. I was a very popular figure today. Many p eople from demonstartors to tourists opted for photo shots with me. It was pretty cool though. Alot of hot chicks out there at Zucotti Park, with the right talk and political view maybe some weed or ecstasy, no doubt you can score a number or a facebook accept or a possible to smash inside somebodies tent. I also got into a few heated debated which boiled into arguements at Zucotti Park, lots of diffrent political views from all sorts different perspectives and opinions, this is why a movement like this is gonna fail.


Anothe thing is that there is a high usage of pop culture materialism at occupy wall street Why should people be wearing American Apperal, Holister, drinking Coca Cola, Drinking 5 bucks starbucks and worse using a new iphone 4s, or a 700 dollar ipad or a 2000 dollar macbook pro which cost just about the same as your Monthly rent in Williamsburg or in Harlem. I got a little heated about this and I told some people why dont you guys just use windows and android devices since they are not pop culture items such as Apple products. It made me sick ot my stomach. I never so so much iphones in my life and it was at zucotti park were before it was mostly blackberry users before the protest! Also be weary about your ethnicity.

Lots of antisemitism is going at Occupy Wall Street since many Bankers are Jewish supposdly and there is a huge support for Zionism by the Government at all levels and aswell as Banks and other finincial institutions, not you dont have to be a Jew to be a Zionists and in fact most arent. Also Chinese and Indians need to becareful because alot of demonstartors blab about American Jobs going to China and India. Rascist comments such as monkey and coolie I have heard from there.
