So they are going to cash-in on the very same they rallied against. Only further proves the hypocrisy of the OWS protesters. LMAO! Too fcuking funny!

How muich anyone want to bet that the merchandise they sell is made in any country other than USA. Further emphasizing their idiocy and hypocrisy.

I suspect this "merchandise" is just something being created to try and downplay the OWS movement.I suspect it is being made by the criminal american government.

You can't stop them from selling junk, but people who truly believe in the movement should neither sell it nor buy it.

Hey, contrary to your idiotic beliefs that they are being funded by Acorn or George Soros, this is an actual grass roots movement that needs income like any other one does. It doesn't have the benefit of specially painted busses purchased by the Koch brothers to keep it going. I also CLEARLY remember the Tea Party selling "DON'T TREAD ON ME" BS all over the place... made in China of course.

Of course they aren't, because they said so, and we all know how truthful they are. LMAO! Get a clue, it most definitely is being funded by former-ACORN, Soros, etal.

Tea Party did not deny their funding. OWS is. What do they have to hide? The money is coming from somewhere.

Are you claiming that all the signs, posters, etc are "Made in the USA"? ROFLMAO!

WAKE UP! Get your head out of the sand.

Lets see, money coming from ACORN? Wasn't Acorn GOVERNMENT FUNDED? Acorn is now out of business yet Acorn is funding them? George Soros? Wow, that guy must be super rich that he can pay protestors in all of these states to protest. Wow, so like where are the applications to sign up and get paid? Where are the recruiters out canvassing for people to make all this money off these protests? Come on now, back up those unsubstantiated claims, just saying it doesn't make it true.

Hey if they're allegedly paying people and what have you, I want in on this, I call that A JOB.

So which is it? Are the OWS protestors being paid to be there (Which would qualify as having a job), or are they a bunch of lazy bums who need to get jobs? You can't have it both ways. Sooner or later that spin cycle your brain is in is gonna have to come to a stop.

You apparently have a severe comprehension deficit, I clearly stated "former-ACORN". ACORN was reformed and renamed, run by the very same people who ran ACORN. OH FCUKING SNAP! If it smells like ACORN, and acts like ACORN....

It's like calling Illegal Aliens, Undocumented Immigrants, are they still Illegals? Or calling Terrorists, Man-Made Disasters? LMAO!!! Yea we realize this concept and reality is difficult for you brain dead lemmings to grasp.

Where in my post did I imply, allege, or infer that the OWS protesters were being paid? I CHALLENGE YOU TO SHOW ME! LMAO!

Yes Soros is super-rich. Why, did you think otherwise? I would consider someone who is #46 of the wealthiest in the World to be pretty darn rich. Wouldn't you?

I don't need to post any more to prove how incredibly brain dead you are.

That is not saying OWS protesters are being paid to protest. Again you have proven your incredible ignorance.

So I will ask again. Please cite where I stated that OWS protesters are being paid. You made the claim, back it up or shut the fcuk up and admit you are a fcuking moron.

I saw yesterday many small business owners had to close because the protesters disrupted and annoyed their customers.Many of them count on that daily cash flow to stay a float.

The movement is know affecting low income people.

I suggest you go back to school and take a remedial course in comprehension. If you can not understand the difference between funding a protest, and paying protesters, then no amount of explanation will make you understand. You are too fcuking stupid to get it.
