The protesters need to occupy a library and learn a trade that will help them to succeed rather than bitching about people with more money than they have.

Blaster, they are not bitching about people with more money than they have, they are protesting the fact that the banks, corporations and government have screwed the middle class.

this is from their website:

"Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally.#ows is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations. The movement is inspired by popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, and aims to expose how the richest 1% of people are writing the rules of an unfair global economy that is foreclosing on our future."

Do you think it's right that 1% of people control 99% of the money in this country? That GE didn't pay any taxes last year? That lobbyists for big corporations are more important to congress than the people are? Face it, you ARE part of the 99%, whether you like it or not. That is, unless you are the owner of a multi billion dollar corporation. Wake up, sheeple!

The Brown County Commissioners HAVE to let them protest. Attorney Kevin Hill was not present when they voted against it, therefore the Commissioners failed to realize they are by the 1st Ammendment to allow protesters to protest. However, now the original decision has been reversed. Pretty scary that our county commissioners do not know our rights...

i just did, got sick as hell,my garden is contaminated by a latino ashakenazi throwing dog doo in the spring i use to water with., the latino ashakenazi political front has to come in the "open" and pay for their neglect of sephardic foreign nationalist drug crime, we had to many "afread e neuman's" (reagan,bush jr,clinton, carter, obama,) in office too many times in a row at a critical time when the foreign drug organizations entered the country.

If one were to think about the cause of the Wall Street Protesters, it would sound just. To protest how Big Corporations are being bailed out. However, they are not looking at the root of the problem, OUR government! The government is practicing a dangerous agenda. By allowing these corporations to survive, they are keeping alive an organization, which by the diffinition of economic competition, should die. America was made by buisiness smart men who started with an idea and then made a product where a consumer would buy. If the consumer no longer wants the product, then the buisiness should upgrade or die. This allows economic grow in American and keeps prices down for the consumer. What the government is doing now is a socialized spreading of wealth. And as for the evil rich poeple....I never worked for a poor person. Rich people keep this country in a paycheck. And for the government....The government does not make money for a consumer and by the mere diffintion of the government's activity, they TAKE MONEY FROM THE WORKER AND GIVE IT TO THE ONE WHO DON'T WORK. The government should only be concearn with the defense of the nation and settling quarrels between States.

the protests take away from concerns like watching over the hpv/hiv neg. females.

The one place everyone should be occupying is the one place they don't have the GUTS to bring this crap to Washington D.C. If you break the law in the Capital the cops there don't have a political agenda.The CAPITAL POLICE will bust some noggins.

Are you going to laugh at the inevitable internal conflict America is going to have because of foreign nationalist drug crime ???? Laugh at the underlying corruption of our system and society by foreign organized crime organizations????? Laugh at the neglect and monopoly of the Ashakenazi political front?? Laugh when "zombie communism" takes over to pay for the std/drug healthcare???

I view these protest's as a communist agenda, if you don't like the product-don't buy it or use it, take your business somewhere else, if you are pissed off by losing student funds or student housing funds then its the std/drug healthcare bills that are primarily causing the economic pinch, the war overseas is a "lease and sell" venture of arab oil and mineral rights, so its a profitable margin. The state of california has a zero birth rate right now, more hpv/hiv babies being born than normal. If a person is infected we have to medicated them to our best means, its only right. Not only that America is flipping the bill for other std healthcare in other parts of the world, look at the price tag-this is a 12 year old web site, times that number by 12--

this is just for the united states , not our std healthcare overseas
