No...But I think most normal Americans realize how screwed we are being by the uber-rich interests.

That resonates far more than some tea-party idiot worth millions of dollars preaching that the problem in America is that people like him aren't being given enough freedom to make money and 'create jobs'.

Sorry, but if you can show me and everyone else where 17 Tea Party people were arrested in ONE day..then maybe I'll start to believe you....
You're standard by measuring whether a protest is worthwhile is by how few arrests the government makes?.....LOL

No arrests "good". Many arrests means the protest movement is "bad"?

You have a seriously twisted authoritarian mentality for judging protests.

You forgot to mention the public defecation, stealing, vandalism, violence, rape and arson.

uber rich interest? try googling the uber rich and you will find that more billionaires and stars in bollywood say they are liberal than any on the conservative side. the conservative side just has more of the middle class than the liberal side does.

You poor baby.

These protests are done in urban centers right in the center of where many homeless live. Of course you are going to attempt to smear OWS with the actions of a few, mainly homeless, mentally disabled persons. Is it any wonder these homeless identify with a movement that would better their lives?

You're scared and something inside of you hopes that by defending the elite status quo in this country, they'll throw you a bone. ...LOL

You likely don't even realize it.

These protests have attracted all together hundreds of thousands of non-violent protestors.

And you list 44 incidents reported by the corporate media hoping to shut their message down.

You'd make a great Putin thug, or Mugabe tribal PR man.

Authoritarians operate the same all over the World.
