Wealthy bankers don't ride the subway - they go to work in a limo.

Why do these protest boobs think that by stopping regular people's commute, that their student loans are going to be magically forgiven and that bankers all of the sudden will get much smaller bonuses?

How do they think that they are helping anyone? They actually think that it's good to hurt other people?

Nancy Pelosi says, "God Bless Them".

So how are they helping?

It goes to show how misguided OWS is. I'm baffled, too, at the entire OWS message to begin with. How can you take anyone seriously who is protesting by the thousands 250 miles north of where they should be protesting?

DC is where the action is. Wall Street is merely taking advantage of what the politicians allow them to take advantage of.

This whole thing has discredited Liberalism to lows that I personally didn't think were achievable.

I agree.

All of the well educated Liberals in this country profess to know the solutions to this country's problems. Their solutions are Progressivism, Social Justice and Socialism.

When you see them ( Liberals ) in action, they destroy instead of heal.


Liberals are giving Liberals a bad name. All by themselves.


Protesters? "God Bless Them", says Nancy Pelosi.

They are jealous of the folks with jobs and want to disrupt their lives. The economy is terrible. Obama was elected three full years ago and has only made it worse. They should be throwing their bodies in front of his Canadian, black, armored bus.

That is particularly amusing since she belongs to the 1% they are protesting against.

They complain about income inequality.

Well, since they don't work, it's going to be hard for them to catch up.

Though they're spewing his class warfare rhetoric - "millionaire and billionaire are not paying its fair share" and so forth.

This morning OWS said this would be a teachable moment. So, did you learn anything?

I'm supposing that by shutting down the city, it will effect those on top who rely on people using those services as well. Holding down streets for protest in cities that don't have subways would have the same effect I guess. When huge marches were held for civil rights, people had the same arguement, stopping transportation was hurting regular people.
