They had not decided yet even what they called themselves.

The tea party has a purpose and a goal. These guys are just a bunch of unemployed whiners with nothing better to do.

Just a wild guess, but it could be because that's where some of these slumlord people on the other post are head quartered.
If these protesters and irate renters had jobs and were happy, they would be too busy, because they would be working full time, and they would have lots of choices.
All of these people have way too much time on their hands, and they need to get a life.
But we can thank Obama for this mess since he works in the interest of Wall street instead of Main street.
They are creating a class war between the poor and the middle class. It's very unfortunate that the mega elite internationalist bankers will be hiding out when this happens, because they are the ones who caused it in the first place, "NOT' the middle class business owners.
Damm these people for doing all of this.

Right on the money, and because they are unemployed and angry, a situation has been created.
I'm stocking up on security supplies for my property, so if they make it over the fence, they are going to go out with a big bang.

Here in Hawaii I see people who, not liking one job, quit and immediately find others. Not bad jobs, airport work, full benefits.
But also here, I think a high percentage of those who travel here for vacation have some money. The new Disney starts at $400/night, 10 days that would be a months salary for some.
So maybe calling them names would not be a brilliant idea for those in the tourist industry. Entry level wages are better than nothing and usurper should soon run out of people willing to lend money.
But like I said before, the first rain and freeze and they will mysteriously disappear.

You should go and join one of these protest groups. At least it will get you off your okole and away from your PC. It seems that you do nothing but post chronically on every subject Topix has. As a sometime reader your name is everywhere which makes me think that you are umemployed or just a chronic complainer. I see where you you mentioned jobs maybe its time for you to get one?

Oh! all of you people make me sick! I'm glad you people are poor and you can't fight back
You deserve every bit of the slumlords that you talk about on the other post, because you people are weak.
All of you need the 20 minute eviction back to hell! protest my azz, you little people are just a bunch of whiners. Get back to work slaves. Let the elite make the orders! and by the way, shut up!

leeward, the protesters were discussing AIPAC - The American Israel Public Affairs Committee.'America's pro-Israel lobby', working to strengthen relations between the United States and Israel.
Please stop your silly acts of dis-information.

You post displays classical trauma and symptoms of dementia and senility. Funny, a Rabbi said the same thing in another sense.
Perhaps it is time to take your meds but no worry braddah, if your are out of prescribion, you can always cruize down to Ball and smoke da pakalolo.

They don't need to be strengthened, Obama just needs to stop weakening them and helping our enemies that want to wipe Israel out. The US military is set up to fight wars on two front at the same time. How many wars are we fighting as of today? Five, six? He's started another one just today. He IS the problem!
#14 Oct 15, 2011
Yeah right, you're admitting the 20 minute evictions, I'm calling the sheriff. Oh that's right, you pay the sheriff to do the evictions in the first place, so never mind, I'll just join the protesters until they change the laws.

What binds a large majority of the protesters togetherregardless of age, socioeconomic status or educationis a deep commitment to left-wing policies: opposition to free-market capitalism and support for radical redistribution of wealth, intense regulation of the private sector, and protectionist policies to keep American jobs from going overseas.
Sixty-five percent say that government has a moral responsibility to guarantee all citizens access to affordable health care, a college education, and a secure retirementno matter the cost. By a large margin (77%-22%), they support raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans, but 58% oppose raising taxes for everybody, with only 36% in favor.
Translation: "The world owes precious ME a living".

Members of the Tea Party are unlike these whiners because they have a job, deodorant and a point.
#17 Nov 5, 2011
Well thanks for your information.
Your reply is silly,all we have heard about here for months is APEC.
You must be in the wrong area.

Is it perhaps time to look at these protestors as an opportunity rather than dismiss them as a mere nuisance.
Not all perhaps, but many of these seemingly useless blobs of protoplasm are in possession of functional intact organs in good working condition including such items as heart, lungs, liver, kidney, eyeballs, bone marrow and so forth.
For that reason, one might ponder the advantage of implementing a strategy best summarized as the shag-drag-bag-refrigerate-recy cle algorithm:
Step 1 -- Shag a protestor of interest using a dart delivery system, the projectile having been filled with a potent animal trank capable of inducing immediate slumber in a large mammal.
Step 2 -- Drag said sleeping beauty to a nearby doorway or alley out of immediate sight of others.
Step 3 -- Bag said protestor in a sealed body bag packed with dry ice.
Step 4 -- Transport the bagged commodity to a well chosen refrigeration site and lower the core temperature to hypothermic levels to slow down metabolic rate to near zero but avoiding actual death.
Step 5 -- Jet the refrigerated product to surgical unit capable of harvesting the organs for immediate sale on the intensively competitive and time sensitive organ transplant market.
Step 6 -- Plow the profits back into the shag-drag-bag-refrigerate-recy cle enterprise thus ensuring its longevity.
Keep this up long enough and VOILA! No more protestors! Not only that but think of all the GOOD people who will benefit from much needed organ transplants.
Truly a win-win proposition, eh?

Protestors were invisible to the delegates. In fact, in truth, all of hawaii was. They came and left quickly.

Occupy Honolulu -
having co-opted from De]Occupy Honolulu - Kanawai Mamalahoe "The Law of the Splintered Paddle," a ruling passed by Kamehameha the Great and incorporated into the Hawaii State Constitution - from the above mentioned Hawaiian rights group as wellas its banner / flag as a front (of which the leadership of Occupy Honolulu considers as being really nothing more than a bunch of "lame Hawaiians") and as is now openly mocked by - Occupy Honolulu (Hui!)- and with this now sick, hypocritical joke / sham of a local Island movement having denigrated and lost much of its original support - while 'trying' to change / correct present civil policy as may apply to the disadvantaged with virtually frivolous law-suits, all the while - more than just a few of the mostly vagrant community of this roadside hovel are breaking the law themselves and violating the rights of others - with what has become for the most part a criminal, pot - and meth head riff-raff, drug-junkie, alcohol addicted, chronically lost, illegals, pathetic losers, freaks and haven for perpetual A.-holes. They've also presently created, not only for themselves but [especially] passing motorists and pedestrians - extremely hazardous conditions and have taken a section of the park with the result of the area being turned into nothing but muddy-dirt and rubbish, their garbage and laundry draped over walls and benches - all being made even more unsightly with overstuffed furniture, the stench of feces and urine - contrived into making the place no longer suitable for the average tax paying park goer. Without their preferred "approach / cause," and as in this particular [Occupy] instance, with it being no longer as possessing any real validity and meaning,- and as concerns these so-called petitioning (read as fanatical) "leaders" - people that actually represent what's systemically wrong with this country, these nobodies; the stupidly arrogant, lying and loud mouthed Christopher (Butt Licker) Nova smith needs a "wake-up" slap and a solid punch in the face - while with Ms Catherine (The Privileged) "Vinegar" Russell deserving nothing more than a swift kick in her ugly fat head, a straight jacket and being sent directly back to whatever filthy crap hole she just so happened to have crawled out of. They brag about this Occupy event being the longest running anywhere, and yes the rights of those most affected (living on the streets) need be addressed, however this - now being again, for the most part a cover for illicit drug dealing and dwelling of riff-raff only still exists due to, unlike similar past events on Wall Street and even around the world, one would have to guess that Hawaii's fairly mild weather has been a major contributor to this "protests" longevity.
Note: A few, slightly flexible criteria & rules for being a part of "The Encampment"...

No lesbians, Cathy's just a tad bit too sensitive 'bout that kina thing. "wink"
If gay, be a Person of Color, studying or whatever, inept / obiously flaming.
Actual| women / Vets-elderly / crippled -(token positions already taken.)
Absolutely no pets or children!
Asians (really) need not apply.
