We cannot with good conscience leave the social, economic and environmental disasters of today's world to our children. Especially not when there are plenty of viable solutions to these problems available to us that are being pushed aside by the greedy status quo.

An illegal alien just took my construction job away from me. The LAS Vegas Nevada Carpenters Local 1977 is corrupt as all hell, taking in as many illegal aliens as they can, to replace American Carpenters. All construction Trade Unions are doing it, as well as non union. KEEP ON PROTESTING. All politicians are against the American workers, if they even mention a path to amnesty for undocumented illegal mexican aliens pouring into the country from Central and South America at over 10,0000 a week. Its time for change and its going to happen with the protesting.

NYPD are blocking a sidewalk and asking for corporate identification in order for people to get through. People trying to access public transportation are being denied. Police check points and identification- what year is it and where the hell do we live?

Eighty-four-year-old activist Dorli Rainey tells Keith about her experience getting pepper-sprayed by the police during an Occupy Seattle demonstration and the need to take action and spread the word of the Occupy movement. She cites the advice of the late Catholic nun and activist Jackie Hudson to “take one more step out of your comfort zone” as an inspiration, saying,“It would be so easy to say,‘Well I’m going to retire, I’m going to sit around, watch television or eat bonbons,’ but somebody’s got to keep ’em awake and let ’em know what is really going on in this world.”

Banks steal 3 trillion dollars in tax payer money. Corporations own all of our politicians. Banks crash the world economy. America is involved in multiple wars. Our country is in debt 15 trillion. Countries are collapsing around the world. 100,000 people are out in the streets of America protesting against this all this.

And you bitch about a guy peeing on a cop car?

Are you getting paid to be a topix propagandist or what?

It didn't hurt that rich people, typified by Mayor Bloomberg, are so haughty and reactionary whenever the servants fail to kiss their asses. Politicians get paid to mix with the rabble and lie to them for the advantage of the wealthy. Rich people, the real rich, don't think they should have to deal with riff raff like us. Seeing a bunch of scruffy disloyal servants hanging around their stomping grounds was like the proverbial turd in the punch bowl for them. They were bound to throw a temper tantrum eventually.

You've been fed lies to what the Occupy movement is about.

It's about money in our politics first of all. It's about government giving hand outs to mega corporations while they cut taxes for the rich, and cut social programs for the poor. It's about the people running the government instead of mega Corporations.

You should be worried about the billionaire bankers that run our government instead of some poor people that barely have enough money to feed their family. Get your priorities straight.

What, exactly, is their platform? Loud, but saying nothing of value. Who, pray tell, is the NY leader? Seems like a bunch of raving dirty hippies looking for attention--oh, they're getting attention--all negative.
