What is it they want?

Yes, jobs are scarce, but I do not believe they want work.

Just what do they do to get money, when you live in the park until October? Bums.

You're lying again, because you know "the 99%" mantra is about obscene concentrations of wealth, not jobs per se.

Well then what does "the 99%" mean? In your own words.

Are you claiming the Occupy protesters think the unemployment rate is 99%? Because that's what you must think if you can't figure out that the Occupy protesters - who use the 1% and the 99% as slogans - are not talking about the extreme concentration of wealth.

So just what does "the 99%" mean?

Don't change the subject.

Well at least you, unlike the other moron, can grasp that the Occupy movement has some concern about obscene concentration of wealth - thus 99% as a slogan - as opposed to the other poster's ignorant, reality defying claim that the Occupy movement is only about jobs.

BTW, you're a cretin. You can't begin to grasp the difference between "socialist" and "communist."

If you don't want "socialism" then you can renounce your social security, your public schools, your roads, your libraries, your police and fire departments, your unemployment, your medicare, etc.

Just like Congressman Ryan wants you to.

What? Cat got your tongue?

Hey cretin, you forgot all the things I listed are the "socialism" you're all huffy about. Deal with it. Address your nonsense in some way.

I already named the R. who wants to gut the social safety net: Ryan.

Are you literally retarded, or are you just pretending?

Now stfu unless you have something halfway on point and intelligent to offer.

Occupy Wall Street , is a protest movement that began September 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, located in New York City's Wall Street financial district.
OWS was initiated by the Canadian activist group Adbusters and has led to Occupy protests and movements around the world.

Hey Heretic, try reading it.. we know you people don't like to read things before passing them, but Ryan's plan shifts the responsibility to the States. Get a grip.. and a clue, or at the very least stop.. lying like the typical liberal.

Hey mongoloid, the states can't go into deficit spending. The Ryan budget would gut those services I mentioned for this and other reasons, including that his budget makes all kinds of cuts.

You know, the services that are clearly - clearly - socialist in nature. You know, the "socialism" you ignorant freeeks are always complaining about...until it's something you want. Like the police.

Whatever you think of the Occupy protesters, I think we have established what the other cretin, your counterpart, could not accept: The 1% and the 99% memes are not about jobs, as he ignorantly lied. It's about concentration of wealth. I know you like extreme concentrations of wealth. That's not the point. The point was what the Occupy movement was arguing over. Not jobs per se.

By the way, take a moment now to actually learn what "socialism" means. "Communism," too, you idiot.

All of those "where are the job's" and "XXXXX in debt with no job" signs were not about unemployment? Has their message changed since last fall?

Oh, another one.

So do you likewise think "99%" and "1%" is about jobs in some way?

Obviously everyone was and is concerned about jobs. The discussion is what is the main talking point of Occupy.

You can go back and read the thread to grasp the context, but that would be rational.

There is no "main talking point" of the OWS movement. They are all over the board. The 99% movement is just one of their many talking points.

Well Sasquatch, when you get around to educating yourself instead of letting them,(Media Matters types) get back to me.

Police... preform a needed service..Dope.

Occupiers..? America has watched their radical ways long enough to determine they are nothing but sheep being led by unions and far left wing nuts like Frances Fox Piven. America has watched them destroy public and private property. America has watched them throw Molotov Cocktails at the police while rioting. America has watched them defecate in public on police cars. America read about the drugs and rapes. America is embarrassed and sickened by them. Nobody ever had to clean up a mess after the Tea Party rallies.. they did it themselves after their PEACEFUL rallies for smaller government and more accountability.

Communism and Socialism.. Are you sure you know what they are about? They've left a history trail of utter failure and collapse.. look it up.

Judging by the old saying "What you don't know can't hurt you".. You're practically invulnerable.

Hey cretin, I know the police are necessary, as are public roads, libraries, schools, fire departments, unemployment, social security, medicare.

These are government run programs and institutions. They are by definition "socialist."

The point was simple: When you Birther Tea Baggers rail about "socialism" you literally have not a single damn clue what you're braying about.

Simple enough yet, mongoloid?
