Chants of "Gimme Gimme Gimme, more and more and more, of my neighbors hard earned money" rang out across the protest eariler today after the Unions took over OCCUPY WALL STREET.

maybe the unions should reimburse their members some of their union dues, you know, the dues they pay into but never seem to get back...

Those dues go into the pockets of the Union Officials and as donations to the political candidate that the Unions deem need to get into office that are sympathetic to Unions.

This charade has gone on long enough. Why do the banks and Wall Street do what they do? Ask Congress.
Ask them why in 1913 they approved a 'Federal Reserve'. Ask them why repeal of Glass-Steagal was a good idea. Ask them why unlimited lobbying and pocketing reams of cash is okay. Ask them why tort reform is immaterial. Ask them why they are entitled to lifetime pensions and primo healthcare, which is paid for by taxpayers. Ask them the definition of ethics and the penalties for violation of them.
And, ask them if they ever had a real job!

I agree. Neither Obama or most of his staff ever had a job. Obama's Sec of Labor Solis was an illegal alien advocate and "community organizer".........ha...a nd, this is Obama's idea of a Sec of Labor?????????? We better elect better next time or we are toast.

Since most members of Congress do nothing but run a never ending campaign for re election so they can stay in power WE NEED CONGRESSIONAL TERM LIMITS.

Useful idiots. They should be protesting Congress not Wall St. Congress put us into this mess. They are controlled by lobbyists and the administration is full of former Wall Street execs. These protesters, almost all white, don't even know their puppets.

The script continues. Start small, add new characters at intervals and try to convince everyone that this is growing "spontaneously".

Did you ever have to squirm though a boring movie that promised a blockbuster ending - but you fell asleep half way through?

Bill O'Reilly wants the Pigs to bring this illegal demonstration to a halt. He wants these Soros' demonstrators arrested (fk the right to assemble).

Hey No Spin Zone guy, it don't work that way in the U.S.

O'Reilly supported the Billion$ on NYC Homeland security, so now there's no money left to stop the Protestors. NYC is so broke it can't use it's massive security to stop LEGAL protest. LOL. Jobless New Yorkers, jobless because of massive govt spending, are now finally free to wreak a little havoc in NYC because NYC overspent on security. Hilarious.

We know Bloomberg is against this Constitutional protest. He helped create the police state in NYC.

"Do you want NYC to get hit again ?"

Shit. The solution wasn't a police $tate, it was to demand the Feds vacate the Middle East (the problem). As always, our problems are created by bad govt policy with the solution being more bad govt policy UNTIL we live in a police state.

Everbody's working low level jobs to pay taxes to their Rulers to keep them safe from the Muhajadeen, when the real threat is the govt, the Rulers who force them to give them all of their money. Stupid New Yorkers and stupid Americans. The Muhajadeen Terrorists are kicking the shit out of us. Fking halarious.

obama shouldn't have had the public sector union thugs become violent and destroy any support for OCCUPY NY. What were his handlers thinking?

Now America is watching one long televised campaign commercial for the Republican candidates across the Nation. In Calif. we have to use Gang Injunctions to stop Mob violence. We will see how NY handles their MOB.
