It is amazing to sit here and read all these comments against the Occupy Movement. Some of these comments come directly from the same people that were outraged when the U.S. Government bailed out JP Morgan and other banks. Your jobs are currently safe....for now. But that is not the case for some of the OWS. In which their jobs were outsourced to other countries for pennies on the dollar. Or did you forget that, while you were ranting and raving about the OWS being wrong. Your okay untill you lose your job to outsourcing and fall behind on your mortgage and are forced out of your home when you fail to be able to pay your bills while working three part-time jobs and getting no sleep. But it's okay shut your mind to the truth. "Go to sleep america your government is in control!" You'll also sit calmly in your comfy chair in your apartment or house. While the US, starts arresting people in the US for standing up for whats right. What do you have to say about the NDAA? Are you okay with the US Government allowing Millitary troops to act within the US? Are ready to spend a few nights in a residential center run by Homeland Security? Or do you even look into what is being protested against before you open your mouth in protest against the protesting......hmmmmm That sounds familiar. Do you like your freedom of speech also? So do all americans. But what do you have to say about those activists being arrested for speaking out and doing no harm, except for expossing the truth. I just love the remarks from the under informed. You asked for a list of issues that the Occupy groups are fighting for. Here's List One The Constitution!
Here's list two The Bill Of Rights!
Ohh Yeah lets not forget a list of human rights too!

It's okay if you don't agree with the movement. It's okay if you talk out loud against the movement. We understand, you have the RIGHT to voice your opinion. That is until the government takes takes that away from us all. Which is what they are gearing up for. NDAA read up on it! Even The Media Hates It! SOPA, PIPA and ACTA read up on those too. Or how about the internet blackout in opposition of the SOPA and PIPA Bills. But don't worry you have a job, so does 70% of the movement. Please read all the facts. They are all over the internet. You also say that mommy and daddy gave these protesters their education and they aren't using that education to their best abilities. So you say, but look into the truth about the jobs that are available in the US today. A lot of jobs that required a degree have been outsourced to other countries. But hey working at McDonalds is a job go get it. But you also don't relize that these places don't want to hire ex business owners and college grads for minnimum wage jobs they want teenagers and the uneducated. So that they don't stand up and fight for higher wages. The educated and the under educated have an equally hard time finding employment these days. But go ahead and close your eyes to the truth staring you in the face. Please don't worry as hundreds of jobs are cut so that the CEO can take a 100 Million Dollar X-mas bonus. Don't worry as our economy takes a nose dive and the Government bails out large corporations. Just to watch those same corporations make airplane purchases and pass out massive bonuses right after they get the bail out money to stop foreclosures. Then sit there all dignified and watch while NONE of the forclosures stop at all. But hey its cool be blind. It's your RIGHT!

Sincerly From A Single Father Of Two Wonderful Children. I have some college education(paid for by myself) I have a wide variety of work experience. I support the Occupy Movement! Before you judge the 99%, please relize that you are the 99%!

BS, that you let that organization TELL YOU that they represent you says an awful lot about your sheep mentality.

Also there just might be some grammatical errors and spelling errors in my previous post. I checked from them and went to remove them and then thought better of it. Because regardless if I remove them or leave them. You will probably still pick them out instead of the true meaning of the statement itself. So here's my agreeing with the fact that there are errors in my spelling and gramatical errors within my statement. So don't sit there and point them out. Let's just discuss the points laid out in the statement. Also my heart goes out to all the injuried protesters in Oakland. We stand in solidarity with you!

To each their own opinion! Call it BS if you want, but im voicing my right to freedom of speech just as you are. I thank all the men and women that have died to make that a reality. Although that freedom one day again will just become a dream for us all. I'm glad I have the right now. As in regards to the sheep mentality statement. On what grounds do you think shows a sheep mentality. Or is that what say about any group or individual that stands up and speaks out against those that wish to pervert our constitution. As in such I share a quote from one of our presidents.

After reading your numerous ignorant emails I think "please educate yourself" is great advice that you should take. Let me guess you are a public shcool english teacher?

I'm just curious as to what you bunny-humping, mildly retarded fuckwits are referencing as "the corporations?"
By definition, a "corporation" is the legal commencement of a commercial (or nonprofit) business entity. A teenager selling lemonade on the side of the road could pay the Secretary of State the $100 filing fee, and incorporate their stand as a C-Corp business in state of Tennessee.
Above, "Robertmccaleb" said that he's "Very strongly [he's] very much against corporations.."
First, I'm exactly sure what this genius was trying to say, as I have pissed sentences in the snow that are more grammatically sound than his dumbass attempt to dry-hump the English language.
Second, taking this MENSA Members' statement at face-value, I have no idea as to what it is he is "against," exactly. Their filing status? Their use of abating personal liability pursuant civil causes of action?
See "Robertmccaleb," you're what scientists commonly call "an idiot."
You have absolutely no clue as to what you're spouting-off about... You just want to yammer, loudly. "Look at me and my brilliant, revolutionary opinions about things I clearly don't understand,'n stuff."
Stop typing, and mow my grass before you embarrass your parents any further.
Sheep are trained from their very young age to be blind, ignorant, asleep and obedient like you. Make some research, make your brain work a bit, THEN talk.

Like the Tea Party? Give the teabaggers misspelled signs, tell them to shout a few buzzwords like "socialism" (even though most cannot even define the term), and have Aetna insurance people egging them on to protest healthcare reform? Remember the guy who actually had a heart attack while protesting against healthcare--- and the poor gullible sap had NO HEALTH INSURANCE!!! So, he will probably go bankrupt paying his medical bills while CEO's of Aetna and United Health make 40 MILLION a year!! Sad....
