Is that it? Do they know that??

So they will live on the street for the rest of their lives. I don't care. It's their choice. They still will have to use the banks that they want to burn down. Their welfare checks get direct deposited.

Once again, these hippies are in no position to DEMAND anything. The very premise evokes violence. It's time to sweep them under the rug. They'll reappear from time to time - like herpes - but their lives will suck more than mine. Why, because I work and have a roof over my head and pay my bills.

Remember: These are the idiots that Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama support.
You have either a reading comprehension problem or you just plainly don't read.

A lot of the guys are there because they think it will get them chicks.
No, they're not. Stop talking until you get educated.

I'll critique this piece of insanity and economic ignorance when I have more time. For now, I'll leave it to others. Let the games begin!!
List is bogus, just 1%ers trying to make the demonstrators look like communists instead of patriots. The Republikaaners did the same thing with the Veterans of the Bonus Army.

Everyone knows what is wrong. 1% have stolen 30% of the economy. Until something is done to correct this the demonstrations will continue

I say they are. And since I'm educated, I guess I'll ignore your DEMAND that I stop talking.

They are throwing all good will away today by their marching that will turn violent and even more people are mad because they blocked the streets making them late to work. I think that the planners of this failed to hold them off till spring when they could really make some headway.

Yes, I do know WHY. I never like groups that take over territory they don't own and try to use their minority numbers to try to force something. Hell, they don't even know what that is.

Did you watch the Samantha Bee video? They came in cursing big banks and were meeting in the lobby of one of them. Certainly Deutsche Bank should have called the police and complained about them.

Maybe they should Occupy Their Universities to find out why they spent so much for a degree in gender studies or peace studies and now can't get a job.

This is a prime example of people failing to think before they type/speak (in regards to the sites OWS recommendations). That list is the most far fetched inconceivable list, that I would hope no real OWS believes in, or they completely lose any credit from me.
