Occupy?...looks two tents four me.
Even the people that live there don't want to occupy Utica! How about these people occupy the barber and the shower stall. Maybe then they will be able to get a job.
4:31 is on it. Who in their right mind would want to occupy Utica? Three bars, a strip joint, and a flock of government employees. Not exactly the Emerald City.
"How about these people occupy the barber and the shower stall. Maybe then they will be able to get a job."Dear Hopelessly Ignorant, According to a study based on a survey from the Baruch College School of Public Affairs; of 1,619visitors to the occupywallst.org site on October 5:Half of the respondents ARE already employed full-time, and an additional 20% work part-time. Just 13.1% are unemployed--not a whole lot more than the national average.And about a quarter of them have also attended occupation events. So they aren't all armchair activists. Let me know if you are in further need of assistance. No need to thank me – it was my pleasure.You may now return to your regularly scheduled Fox programming.
too freakin cold to occupy watertown..how about we all occupy miami beach?
Take 1619 visitors to a website and use the results as a poll? I think I will stick with Fox and you can stick with your pole.
To 10:12So your source of information comes from a college of all places, AKA a liberal breeding ground. And your source cites information that was obtained from website traffic. Not exactly a representative sample of the people actually participating in the rally. You may now return to your liberal way of life where the government should take care of everyone, the hippies, the unmotivated, the drug users, and of course the lazy. You want to occupy someplace? Occupy Pennsylvania Avenue, that's where the problem is.
12:48, I can provide a number of recent polls that are consistent with the Baruch College School of Public Affairs poll. Regardless, they all show the OWS movement is more popular than the Tea Party and growing. And for good reason -- Unlike the corporate owned and controlled Tea Party, this is a true populist’s movement. We are witnessing a REAL American Revolution. In fact, it won’t be long before OWS makes the Tea Party look like… a tea party. They are everyday people -- plain and simple.12:48, I suggest you substantiate your claim that the OWS movement participants are "unmotivated lazy drug users" -- if not, then you’re full of $hit. As far as “Pennsylvania Ave.” is concerned – like congress, it is bought and paid for by Wall Street. They are one and the same. Too bad, you are unable to see this.I would suggest the next time you make your outlandish remarks and churn out the uber right’s hate filled and stale talking points propaganda you may want to get your facts straight.Incidentally… maybe you and your breed might want to try and pass judgment and direct your sordid insults at this group of "unmotivated lazy drug users." while you’re at it… OccupyMarines.orgAgain, my pleasure.
To our LIB guy.Stick up for yourself. If 13% of these dregs are unemployed, that's actually LOWER than these days of Obama. The admitted unemployment rate is over 9%, and most honest folks admit it may be almost twice that, as many have quit looking. So in fact, you're fools are very successful, hard working Americans. They're simply using their vacation time. Please do explain one thing for me. If Wall Street is the enemy, then why has the Great and Annointed One been able to raise such huge amounts of cash from the very folks that you blame for many of our ills? Wall St loves Obama; did so last election cycle. And if that is the case, which it is, then why aren't you dorks stinkin' up Washington and not a few parks here and there? If it's something you want to talk about. If not, no matter. I would say the occupiers are running out of vacation time. They'll surely have to apply for leaves of absence if the party continues.
Oooohhh,“Lib Guy.” How Original. Sean? Sean Hannity, is that you? Your first paragraph is a nonsensical mumbo jumbo of incoherent right wing talking point contradictions unworthy of a reply. In regard to your second question; no problem:The issues are: 1) deregulation of the banks by the Republican-controlled congress in 1999; 2) hedge funds are exempt from regulation; 3) tax system no longer has a disincentive against paying outrageous executive salaries (highest marginal tax rate has dropped from 90% to 36%); 4) commodities market is exempt from regulation (Republican-controlled Congress exempted it in the Commodities Future Modernization act of 2000); 5) the Supreme Court has ruled that corporations can spend unlimited funds in campaign elections (thus politicians on both sides favor the wealthy/corporations) and 6) the rise of corporate/billionaire “propaganda media news.” Because of the need to raise massive sums in politics today, we no longer have a party that represents the people. The Democrats have to chase the corporate and big money donors too.Are you still with me Sean? Why do you think Wall Street was able to damage our economy right under the noses of our government? Why do you think that vast numbers of jobs and nearly all of our manufacturing jobs have been off-shored… and not only without penalties but with government incentives as well? Why? …because the majority of OUR Government is BOUGHT AND PAID FOR!!The Wall Street bail out was a deliberately engineered heist... and It was the largest re-distribution of wealth from the middle and working class to the already affluent. The bail out money went straight into the largest shareholders pockets… and obscene bonuses went to the top CEO’s. So it starts on Wall Street because Washington is a wholly owned subsidiary of W/S. The true driving force behind this movement is the fact that significant acts of fraud and other criminal acts were committed.These crimes were never prosecuted and no accountability was imposed. What you are seeing with the presence of the OWS protesters is the rotting edifice of corporatism beginning to crumble. What you’re seeing is a lot of pissed off Americans exercising their 1st. Amendment rights.Now, with respect to Obama… Are you so foolish to think I would defend him? I have always maintained that Obama is a bought and paid for “corporatist.” Yes, Wall Street does “love” and own him.Now, are you so foolish to think this mess we are in now started with Obama? How you and others fail to see where the “real filth” lies is just plain ignorant -- but that’s what your owners count on. Seriously… who are the real “takers and “thugs?”
