At first I was somewhat sympathetic but after I repeatedly heard vile anti Semitic rhetoric I lost all sympathy! I watched one occupy group on television that repeated everything a speaker said phrase by phrase. It reminded me of something straight out of Orwell!

Not all of us are the same just like you have trouble labeling the tea party some in the tea party want to control (religious right) a women reproductive rights, other tea party people only want a simpler, smaller, more libertarian form of government but they all identify as tea party. So it is with the Occupy movement, some throw feces at police cars and want someone else to pay for their college and provide them a job immediately, others I assume from your post are anti Semitic though I have not heard that.

A lot are angry that this whole recession was caused by the crowd on wall street. They played fast an loose treating home mortgages like a commodities except that they were not regulated as such, they created phony insurance to guarantee packages of mortgages so they would keep a good rating, credit default swaps and such. All the keep the game going a little longer and pocket a few bucks. On top of this they used their money and influence in congress to get out from under regulatory laws created after the great depression to keep companies from being so large that if they fail they bring down the rest of our system. Then it happens and the dominoes start falling.

Now many are left with homes that lost half their value which they can not sell. I can not get my mind around how many billions collective Americans have lost in order for a few to make some extra money. I look at the pain, heartache and billions lost and who has gone to jail for this???????? Nobody so I guess that means it is ok to do it again.

Well, they have achieved the honor of being useful idiots, becoming adept at surviving in tents which has prepated them for living the detention camps they'll eventually be placed in when the elites are done using them.

Just want that sentence to be repeated again...

People that earned their way in life don't owe you or anyone else a thing.

And to add to that, and we are sick of having the entitlement programs shoved down our throats. Go teach your own f'ing self to go fish, those of us who work hard for a living have and enough of the freeloaders and cheaters.

<quoted text>Did you make that call on the free Obama cellphone? You say that you live in a tent and have a brother,why don't you live with him? Could it be that you are either lying or even your own brother won't put up with your lazy butt? People that earned their way in life don't owe you or anyone else a thing.If you want or need something in life go out and earn it like other people do.Wake up,it is sad to go thru life with your hand out thinking that you are owed everything,get at least a little pride,you would feel much better.The liberal/socilist loons like you are idiots.Just saying.

The Occupy movement is just another name for the Bolshevik revolution.

Bolsheviks, Marxist & Communists way back in the early 1900's used to OCCUPY buildings & places to try & create their Bolshevik revolution.

The term Occupy is right out of the Bolshevik hand book.

Obama knows the way.
Although you may think it so, Obama is not Jesus, Jesus is the only one who really knows "the way".

Obama is an idiot. OWS'rs are one step above him actually, at least they are useful idiots.
