So corporations are waring on their customers? Explain how that works? If that is the case, WHY are these corporations STILL in business. You would think if you were truly 99% of America, as you claim. There would be NO WAY all these evil corporations could survive on 1% of the population. You need to review your calculations, it would appear your math is a little off. By my calculations, by about 99%! BTW your movement is more like a bowel movement, shyt! Tea Party for Newt 2012!

the teabigots worked on the behalf of foreign multinational billionaires. The Occupy Movement is a worldwide movement for the rights of people, fairness, and democracy.

Actually it didn't take Newt saying that to let us all know, nobama is repsonsible for more people being on foodstamps than ANYTIME since the 30's. It won't take him telling us nobama is also responsible for amassing more debt than any other pres in history. It won't take him telling us nobama is responsible for the first ever downgrade to our credit rating. It won't take him telling us nobama is responsible for more Americans living at or below the poverty level in history. It won't take him telling us nobama has played more rounds of golf, in ONE term than any other pres, while he talks of "shared sacrifice". Where has he sacrificed? It won't take him telling us he is responsible for the "misery index" being higher than its ever been, and so on. You're asking me, if conservatives think for themselves. When you support a party, that wants to provide for all your needs and do all your thinking for you, so you can be blind, in you ignorance? Yea right, try again. Tea Party for Newt 2012!

Yea well that means you're in the WRONG COUNTRY! Because we do NOT have a democracy in America. We have a REPUBLIC! Liberal douchbags like would like nothing more than for us to be a democracy, basically mob rule, but it just ain't so! Fairness, what is fair? Define fair. Who is to decide what is fair? What's FAIR is letting people be FREE to determine the outcomes of their own lives, through self reliance and individual responsibility. Fair is letting those who achieve success legitimately keep as much as possible of what they earn. The Tea Party wants a return to Constitutional governence, lower taxes, and less regulation. BTW Americans have MORE RIGHTS than any other people on earth! The OWS movement is more like a bowel movement, shyt! Tea Party for Newt 2012!

So, "YOU" include your self in the "99%" as "WE".

Your Team could use some training in "TACTICS". In order to bring any "Corporation" to its knees in a compromise of surrender, Planning of action must be more agressive in extracting funds from "CORPORACRACY".

This is your weekness. As long as the corporate sewage flows away from it source, the 99% are nothing more then disengrunteled SLAVES, which can be bought and sold.

That is YOU...

You are an uneducated moron, and I'm not surprised with an idiotic name like "liberty is freedom". Stupidity is Ignorance would be a better name for you. Go get more misinformation from Faux Noise.
