Hey, I've news for you, "Banks don't owe you a job". You won't find jobs beating on empty buckets in downtown Atlanta, the farmers are looking for employees, are you qualified? If not go hungry, and look out cold weather is right around the corner.

It is nice to see, people judging harshly behind the scenes so we only think they are fools, than to post a reason for their judgements, and remove all doubt.

Main Reason For Demonstrations

These college kids had a financial plan, get student loans, major in something easy so they could party rather than study in college then after college they would declare bankruptcy and be free of these $200,000 student loans. The banks out smarted them by having the student loans free from being excused from any bankruptcy, and now these idiots have discovered they will be responsible for the loans forever. Many majored in sociology and psychology so they could become community organizers, and now no one wants to hire them. Like one said the other day, "Who's gonna pay for my student loan?". Guess who, you are, not us. No one made you get it, you begged for the loan, and now you are mad at the banks and the government because a bankruptcy won't forgive it. It must be tough to be dumb and in debt up to your eyeballs, but you asked for it, and you now have it. Again, I don't think beating on plastic buckets is the answer to your dreams, pick some veggies for farmers, that is about all you are qualified to do with that degree.

I can understand legitimate protesting, but these protest are so disjointed and broken that you lose any rational reason.
Saw the video of the student, wanting free studen loans (Grants), Free cars for students (fantasy) and free food for students (Food stamps), after she graduated she should get a free Job,(Volunteer) for 4 years to repay the freebies through college, what do you think? Good Idea?

I repeat "Nothing is free in America", someone must work to pay for it. Only a deadbeat would ask another to work for them when they are to lazy to do it for themselves. Lots of farmers are now hiring if these people can't find jobs. obama gave our tax money to the banks to bail them out, the Republicans didn't want the obama Stimulus bill to pass. These demonstrators are blind to what has happened and should be blaming obama and the Pelosi/Reid democrats for the mess we are now experiencing. Their fantasy world has collapsed, and no fantasy will repair it.

If they allow these individuals to camp out in this park then the city needs to apologize to the homeless they have for so long been running off before bedtime.

I agree with Boortz, "Tell them to go run Haiti for a year then come back and we will talk".

The only things they can run now is their mouths.

It must be awful to take out a student loan and go to school for 4 years and TRY to get a job these days.
I think they should forgive those student loans since the education was WORTHLESS!!!

You get out of an education what you desire. No one makes anyone borrow money to not learn anything. This is their "freedom of choice" you can elect to partake or refrain from, the choice is theirs. It sounds as if many of these sign holders in the parks made bad decisions, and now they must pay for their stupidity. Many would have been better off living at home and going to a community college or trade school, but they chose to borrow the big bucks. Now the party is over, it's time to work and pay up.

We will remember Mayor Mohammad by his actions, not by what he wanted to do. His answer is typical of a politician who is worried about his image more than his citizens.

All of working to pay for their taxes can tell how they don't want jobs by the # of their negative judges. These obama loving socialist deadbeats don't want jobs, they want us to give them our hard earned money.
