Why don't the Wall Street (Hippo-crates) I mean Occupiers protest about the Big,Greedy, Hollywood Actors who make a Million dollars PLUS per movie or per TV episode, and do nothing else but bitch and moan about this country!. Or the salaries paid to Professional Athlete's, who earn Multi-million's a year only because they are born to be 7 foot tall freaks or can swing a bat or catch a football? And for that they have the gall to strike and ask for yet more! Is that not “Greed”
Are they not Greedy and Overpaid.? Most of them are so stupid, that they couldn’t get a job at Walmart.

Leftists obviously think taking from someone else using force (for example, income redistribution) is all fine and dandy, so it should be no wonder that the leftists at Occupy Wall Street think rape is okay because hey if you want sex, just go ahead and take it with force from someone else.

get to work dirtbags. I'm tired of all these blood sucking maggots trying to get free everything. Learn how to stand on your own 2 feet. This used to be a great country. Now, every illegal alien, druggy, and white trash want a free ride at the hardworking man's expense. Free Housing, welfare, medicaid, food stamps, grants, you name it. Get a Job Dirtbags!

SHAME ON YOU PROPAGANDIST

Break down of the Occupy Wall Street people.

Traffic on the Occupy Wall Street site averaged about 400,000 visitors a day during the sample week (October 7th), which represents more than 10% of the population. 1619 people completed the survey.

Age

Not surprising, nearly 2/3 of the protesters are under 35. But one in three is over 35 and one in five is over 45.

Racial/Ethnic background

81.3% of respondents considered themselves White, 1.3% Black\African American, 3.2% Asian,.4% Native American Indian, 2.9% Mixed, 7.7% Hispanic, and 3.2% considered themselves some other group.

Education

Only 7.9% of respondents lack at least some college.

27.4% have some college (but no degree), 35% have a college degree, 8.2% have some graduate school (but no degree), and close to 21.5% have a graduate school degree.

Employment Status

70% of respondents had jobs. 50.4% worked full time. 20.4% worked part time.

Only 13.1% are unemployed.

Income

47.5% of the sample earns less than $24,999 dollars a year and another quarter (24%) earn between $25,000 and $49,999 per year.

71.5% of the sample earns less than $50,000 per year.

15.4% of the sample earned between $50,000 and $74,999.

The remainder 13% of the sample earn over $75,000 with close to 2% earning over $150,000 per year.

Politics

27.3% of respondents considered themselves Democrats, another 2.4% said they were Republican.

Interestingly, a very large proportion of the sample, close to 70.3%, considered themselves Independents.

Cordero-Guzman concluded that the 99% looked like the 99%.

The one way they did significantly differ was in gender. 67% were male. 30.9% were female and 2% preferred another gender designation.

92.5% of the respondents either strongly or somewhat agree with the protests. Over 91.8% believe the movement is likely to grow.

The shame is on these assholes who are parasites of the socialist party of America, they need to take a hike and a shower.
And they should take a look at some of the videos from Veterans Day, maybe if they see what REAL MEN are doing for their country they might learn something more that crapping in the park.
