Insufficient information to form an opinion.

Naturally this poll couldn't give us anything specific to respond to. There are OWS protests AROUND THE WORLD, even in Japan. Their agendas are not all exactly the same. In fact they vary a great deal depending on the makeup of the local populace. Not all of the protests are in college towns.

As usual, worthless poll.

I do realize though that the Main Stream Media is doing its best to tarnish what the protesters are doing. Eventually, the powers that be will hire some stooges to "pretend" to be real protesters, cause a confrontation so that all of the protesters will be painted with the same brush.

OWS is funded and fueled by higher Leftist powers. Acorn is shredding documents by the pile. The protesters have no idea why they are there. Only that they want a piece of the pie without working for it.

And if I went to one of those protests to see for myself rather than what the Main Stream Media wanted you to THINK, would my trip be funded by "higher Leftist powers".

I'll give you an example Lobo of what the MSM wants you to think. If you disagree with Obomit in anyway, then that means you are racist. Do you agree with that concept? Because that's what the media has been spouting for sometime. Same thing if you are against the invasion of illegal immigrants. How many times have you seen the MSM repeat what the invaders say which is that its racist to deny them entry?

Don't pick any choose the concepts and ideas that the MSM WANTS you to think. FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF!!

The OWS movement's main objective is to fix the problem that the super rich can influence politics more than anyone else. Our government is supposed to voice the American people, not a select few who can afford lobbyists.

Conservative media tries to play it off that it's just a bunch of hippies who don't want to work. While there might be a bunch of clueless individuals on the streets, the movement's main objective was clear from day one.

Educate yourself before making a judgment - this doesn't mean take the opinion from Bill O'Reilly and Fox News.

Check the website for Occupy WallStreet if you must. The 'About' Section has said the objectives before the movement started.

Funny thing is, the middle class conservatives oppose to this, even though the middle class is getting screwed the most. Do some of you people really think the government cares what we think, anymore? Well, OWS is doing something about it, while the rest of you are sitting behind your computers complaining about hippies participating in a "worthless" movement.

Ridiculous - How dare you attempt to pop the bubble that the media wants the sheeple to see. The truth doesn't matter to the media and it hasn't for some time. Nor does it to the sheeple from the comfort of their armchairs.

The issue is Washington. That's where the laws are written. The very laws that the corporations use to do the things you're complaining about. Quit trying to deflect by blaming conservatives. Where were all of the OWS folks during the Tea Parties? That's right, they were on the sideline with their elitist condescension. Of course the MSNBC/Ed Schultz faction labelled the Tea Partiers as "racists", "hate mongers", etc. with no shred of proof. So now the tables have turned and you don't like it. Awww, TFB! Why wasn't there a large OWS presence at the White Hose & Capitol Hill? Hmmmm?? How many reports of violence and vandalism were reported between the two movements?

Over 30,000 People Rally in New York City (NYPD estimated 32,500), including organized contingents of workers, students, and other members of “the 99%”

"Our political system should serve all of us — not just the very rich and powerful. Right now Wall Street owns Washington," said participants . "We are the 99% and we are here to reclaim our democracy."

The 99% is probably more likely 2 or 3%. If you want to curtail Wall Street, stop Hussein and Bernanke from printing funny money. Tickles me, Hussein was kissing your azz and you shoot out his windows. People are likely to die over this idiotic movement.

I'm all for freedom of speech, but these college kids protesting on campus who are blocking the way for other students to get to class should not be whining about getting pepper sprayed.

Make a path for those people who are there to get an education. If they think the police mistreated them just wait until the parents that are paying tuition get there.

Get off the sidewalk, make a path, and hold your sign in the grass. Or better yet, get your a$$ to class.
