"This affects everyone and just seeing the chain reaction to the power of just a grassroots organizing in action, it’s

a global message that is being passed along," said Dylan Richardson, a 23-year-old freelance photojournalist living in Williamsville. He attended the New York City protests last week and plans to return.
"I think what it comes down to is people realizing that the system that has been established that’s supposed to work isn’t working and even the folks who have gone through all the so-called steps of what you’re supposed to do to be successful, those people are finding out that isn’t working," he said. "We know a lot of people are really unhappy with the way things are and we need a change."

Am I missing something or is shouldn't this free land photo journalist be thankful he lives in a country like ours so the he can make a living at age 23 and live in Williamsville Vt?

We are in trouble because the next generation are a bunch of spoiled children with educations. Ingratitude is the name of this tune.

I think your expenses so out pace your income, you always working and so called giving, the response is you hate everyone and especially the poor, you hate your life that is forcing you to work 48 hours per day and you are blaming it on everyone else.

Basically nobody else would take you and your degree, you are mad at life and me because you are stuck at the bottom of the barrel...

I don't know what happened to your life, where the lost boonies of VY became your only choice with such a degree as you got...

Sorry Mike but I have always been he hardest worker on every job I have ever had including my present job. I also have never asked for a raise and now earn a six figure income. I am in the top 1% of the area with respect to income. I know what I am talking about.

The reality is that I don't think I am special and think that every able bodied individual can do what I have done. Work hard and have a healthy attitude and you will be taken care of.

You should try it.

The OWS movement is going no where. Why? Because it has no legitimate reason for doing what they are doing. If it is anti capitalist then it is going no where since it is a tiny minority that feels that way. If it is anti Republican it is going no where since this is a center right country and the republicans are center right and if it is anti Obama it is going no where since he is going to be out of office in 2012.

I hope every democrat and union in the country attaches to this because it is going no where.

Don't you think that Hillary Clinton has shifted more to the right during her stint as Secretary of State? She was always the smarter of the two in that relationship. I would like to see Hillary Clinton make another run for the Democratic ticket; at least then the Democrats would have a viable candidate running!

Hillary Clinton was born into a family of republicans and almost all her relatives except Bill still are republicans.

The truth is not scary .

Morons who pontificate and know zip about anything but their own pathetic miniscule view of life is scary .

Scary.8 years of relentless Bush corporate sponsered administration . Scary .

Obama may not have solved the mess. The mess was brought to us compliments of the REPUBLICANS and all their cronies.

The Republicans have done nothing but add to the coffers of the wealthy .

Give me a break the republican candidates are a joke.

Republicans expect to win in 2012

By Jon Cohen

Republicans are overwhelmingly confident about taking back the White House in 2012, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Democrats are less sure that their guy has another big win in him.

Overall, 55 percent of Americans expect a Republican victory next year. Fewer, 37 percent, predict that President Obama will win reelection. A majority of independents sense that the GOP nominee will prevail, but there is a gaping difference between party loyalists.

Fully 83 percent of Republicans say the GOP nominee — whoever he or she may be — is likely to claim the presidency next year. Among Democrats, far fewer, 58 percent, say they think Obama will win a second term. A third of Democrats expect a GOP win; just 13 percent of Republicans sense a repeat for Obama.

Republicans who “strongly support” the tea party political movement are particularly confident: 91 percent of these Republicans say they think the GOP candidate will win the general election.

Obama didn't make the mess. Neither did bush. And neither did Wall St. But....Obama and the democrats have made it worse by spending too much money on the democratic special interests like public sector unions, unions in general and foolishness like Solyndra.

Even if Obama was ok we need to get rid of him to stimulate hope. He has attacked business so much that they are afraid to do anything.

ABO anybody but Obama
