What ARE they standing up for?

Oh, they want the 1% rich people to pay their way.

Kinda like children who expect someone ELSE to keep feeding them AFTER they grow up.

Sure we are all created equal, but like in nature there is ALWAYS a top dog, leader of the pack.

Those punks are crying because they haven't been able to fight their way up the ladder to BE the top dog.

Bunch of crybabies, I say.

In what way do YOU feel exploited??

The super rich sport professionals get paid a PHENOMINAL amount of money to toss, kick, throw or hit a ball. Their fans and product endorsements make them a boatload of money. Are they exploiting you??

The super rich business person who made a phenominal amount of money providing goods and services that people needed. Are they exploiting you??

In what way do YOU feel exploited??

<quoted text> LOL. Sorry Eleanor baby but I had to laugh at your naivity. The majority of rich business persons of course exploit their workers through unfair compensation schemes and denying them their rights. Most importantly, how do you explain these rich corporations who "outsource" their operations to the developing world and REALLY exploit the natural and human resources of other nations, not to mention minors who toil in the sweatshops of the big rich firms??
But how are YOU PERSONALLY being exploited.

The protesters are protesting for THEMSELVES and NOT those FOREIGN PEOPLE who are REALLY the ones being exploited.

How are YOU being exploited? Are you working and accepting unfair compensation? Are your rights being violated?

Come on, do tell!

WE are all allow to protest within the context of the law. Causing our city parks to become hazmat zones is not! That is the .001% exploiting and costing the majority a financial burden to their cities that could be used to greater benefit. No one is closing the ears and eyes to this .001% willy nilly -when they could not define what they were protesting beyond vague catch phrases and forgot to protest the government which actually gave them the TARP funds then they loss credibility.
