This "Occupy - Fill in the Blank" is a joke. It is a political ploy to make people take their focus off of being productive. People are getting filthy rich off of short-selling the market as they pull the strings on the puppets out there creating this nonsense.

the problem is that people will always try and buy things they want. doesnt matter if its joe blow trying to buy weed on the corner or peggy sue trying to buy a politician. thats just how people work.

the problem is that certain people in certain positions are supposed to say no, you can't buy me, but they don't. polticians are supposed to say no, but they dont.

lots of businesses wanted bailouts. who wouldnt? a bailout is no different than the stimulus check everyone got, cashed, and spent. joe blow got his free government money to buy weed, and peggy sue got her bank bailout for her corporation. if you accepted a stimulus check and spent it, then you dont get to complain about corporate bailouts.

if someone told you that the right thing to do would be to send back your stimulus check, would you do it? how crazy would you think that person was for suggesting that? yeah see its the same thing with the bank bailouts. its crazy and stupid to even think about not taking the money. funny thing is though a lot of corporations did refuse the money, and some had to be forced to take it by the government. percentage-wise, more corporations refused money than private citizens refused their stimulus checks. not hard to see where the real greed is there.

so yeah what we have is nothing more than a bunch of whinybabbies who want free stuff and they think the best way to get it is by destroying things, breaking the law, infringing peoples rights, banging drums all night keeping people awake, overdosing on heroin, raping women in tent camps, spreading tuberculosis, and assaulting cops all while pretending they're protesting "peacefully."

Who says there is 99%.....no one I know is for it. Count me OUT, all my family, co-workers, and friends. This the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Everyone for it wants something for free. Guess, what....shut it down and see what happens. If people don't like government bailing out corporations, vote Obama out.

There is an Occupy DC.

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."

Yes, but you need to have a real point or precise vision not some generic, "since we aren't rich, we want the govt to make life better for us instead of doing it ourselves." All the while, wearing their J Crew and using iPhones.

Someone explain to me how protesting corruption and fiscal irresponsibility between corporations and the government is wanting something for free. The movement I have seen are fighting things like tax loopholes for rich people, or the bail out for instance, or corporations spending money on lobbyists to buy favor from officials so they will support their agendas. The corporations got 700 billion of your tax dollars for free, then started handing out bonuses to the fat cats. I think you are being deceived.
