this is what is happening...

the country continues to borrow money and not making money. so they print more to pay back those loan.

what people are protesting about...

country continues to print money not to help the country but to stay in the market.

people cotinue to pay taxes, and where are those money going to? not the roads, not the buildings, not the education, not the employment, it's the help pay off the countries debt. there is so much american dollar circling right now, but nothing is in the american life is improving.

Protests aren't going to do shit, I'm surprised no one has organized a para military group to start assassinating some of these inept ceo's and exec's.

Your right man, the protests in the middle east that began last winter achieved nothing. I'll tell you what, buy a gun and shoot a CEO and I'll give you my support.

This has been my favourite video for the past few days, it tells the truth!

Awesome rant to the US gov't - YouTube
My comment was just one side of my opinion. i have complaints against the system that governs us as well and sometimes the only way to show the real displeasure of our government is by protesting. I just think the goals are too scattered. What is the point of this protest? What are they trying to change? I read an article about the groups motives and their displeasure and they're all over the place. normally if there's a mass protest and they wish to make it work they have to have a solution and a set goal in mind. They don't have a solution and they have 30 set goals. Like a president once said, My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. What do they want? for the government to change things? They should find someone who knows whats wrong and what can be done to change the country.


I never really got into the videos because I'm really getting sick of hearing about banking catastrophes and the dropping stocks etc. My favourite qoute "They'll give the bank a bail out if they make a mistake but they won't give me a bail out if I make a mistake.

Stuff like that is much too grey to be regulated.
What about limiting the size of donations?

Those guys are just players in the game; you'll inevitable get bad apples no matter what. You can say the same thing about building construction or water safety or airplane maintenance, etc. That's why we have referees or at least we're supposed to.

They're not protesting to change something, well not entirely. These people have two choices, they can continue their normal life and pay taxes that goes to nothing, or they can refuse to work and stand up for what they believe.

The protest in the middle east did have an affect, it did brought down a 30 year government. But did it change anything? Not right now, but maybe eventually and gradually, it will.

If the protest in the states gets big enough, then they'll have the majority of the people not going to work and such. Is it going to bring down the market? No. But i'm pretty sure this will have an affect on america in so and so years.

FOX News interviews spends time interview random people during the occupation, only showing those who maybe don't articulate themselves as well as the could to prove the point that the protest has no direction or point.

Conveniently overlooks this dudes response....

One of the best interviews I have seen from the occupiers.

This generation is full of whiny little bitches.

How many cycles has the global economy gone through before and recovered from? yet I don't remember our grandparents saying "in the 30's we took over wall street during the great depression"; or my uncles during the 70's or my dad in 87' or my cousins in 97/98 or anyone during the dotcom bust.

STFU, strap up and get a job. If you can't find a job, make a job or go get some more schooling. People that feel entitled to anything outside of basic social needs and rights should get drafted into the army or deported to Africa.

I definitely support the protest on the level that there is an enormous problem with the way our current societies are being run, the inability for the government to actually do anything to fix any problems, and how the "1%" are fucking the rest of us. Changes need to be made in the way the governments are run. Without getting into any finger pointing, because neither I, nor the majority of the public truly know what goes on behind the scenes.

I am against how so many kids (college kids) are using this as a platform to spew winey excuses. There are hundreds of interviews with college kids saying they cant afford their $50k/year tuition for their 8th year in some bullshit arts program and its not fair. Those people need to get with reality. When times are tough, you need to adapt, and sometimes that means doing something you don't want to do, or make changes you're afraid to. Put on some work boots and go get to work. No work around you? Put on some combat boots and join the Military, they are always hiring, and may infact lead to a better future.

since you are "educated" sociology 101 teaches what is internal and what is external.

A 13% unemployment rate sure as hell isn't internal you tool. So suck a bag of dicks.

Ultimately, these people are proof that the "cut taxes for rich and let it trickle" doesn't work. That's why you have the 1% controlling more and more.

Maybe those 13% should have thought long-term and got into a versatile field or had broad job training

I have no sympathy for people with arts degree's complaining about no jobs when their arms are too

I predict they will start a war somewhere between now and election time to draw media focus away from said election/issues.

Lol. You're speaking from a point where you're not experiencing what these people are going through. And just because the economy has recovered doesn't mean that people should not strive for a change. And in our grandparents day, they didn't print out 600 billion dollars.

Maybe some people weren't as fortunate as other who had financial support when they're in their teens to get job training or go to school.

People are sick and tired of being paid on a $9/hr job and still have to struggle with their bills when the feds are printing out money like blank papers and paying off their own debt.

The government has all the power and a full monopoly on the use of force. It's a corporations purpose to create profits, they've just done what they're meant to do. On the other hand, the government has been a complete failure.

Oh fuck.....FOX news, you are awesome.

And, Ann Coulter you are such a cunt.

Horrendous! Ann Coulter Compares Occupy Wall Street Protestors To Nazis | PerezHilton.com

I totally dig that when you have a protest, etc. you have a whole sub-population of people that join solely to be "that guy" with the dreadlocks, knit beenie, dirty finger nails, and Phish t-shirt who last week was at the abortion/weed/homelessness/free hug sit-in/protest. The people that right wing ass-hat media outlets LOVE to interview to make everyone look like a fucking moron.

The thing that pisses me off is that fact that a lot of these people have a well-educated point to what they are doing. DO you see that on the news? Not so much...

And Ann Coulter? Well that bitch is just an angry cunt and probably cuts herself at night. I'm excited for the day that she is caught in some form of scandal....I'm thinking some lesbian strip club with a black guy type scenario....

that is all.
