Bad question.

How about "what do you think of it ?"

I support their 1st amendment right to assemble and criticize govt (not necessarily Wall Street). Wall Street is not the govt. It can do as it wants.

Notice the many democrat/liberal big city mayors who order the Occupiers evicted and or arrested. The Occupiers voted for those mayors. Americans love to ignore the Bill of Rights until they need them.

The Left hates the 2nd amendment, the Right hates anyone who would use the Bill of Rights to oppose the U.S. overseas (foreign) military empire. Both sides are destroying America (a nation full of nazis).

We must have Martyrs! The success of the revolution demands that we have the sympathy of the people! We can only accomplish this with one or more martyrs.

Who among you will become a hero and lay down your life for the rest of us?

It is imperative that the occupiers provoke a violent confrontation with the gendarmes. Provoke them by cursing, urinating on them or throwing feces in their faces.

The revolution must gain momentum

It's a foolish movement with no end in sight and is sucking up the budgets of the the cities (police, parks dept., etc..) where these occupations are occurring; trust me the bankers are laughing at them while they walk to their office buildings from Mon. to Friday.

Eventually, they will replace the rubber bullets with lead ones. Hope you're in the lead... provoking. You sound like the best martyr for the cause. We need you!

I support the Occupy Wall Street Movement because it is a TRUE grassroots movement addressing REAL issues - like the fact that in 30 short years, the US has gone from the MOST to the LEAST upwardly mobile with the widest income gap of all Industrialized nations.

Frankly, working people who align themselves with Faux News and the Tea Party are nothing but the useful idiots to their own subjugation. While OWS is out in the cold talking about getting money out of politics, and the fact that corporations AREN'T people and money ISN'T speech... the Tea Party is bussed in by the Koch Brothers to rail about Obama's birth certificate, Sharia Law and other nonsensical distractions.

We The People need a NEW, New Deal - and OWS is the beginning of the movement to reclaim the former economic vibrancy of the American Middle Class. As FDR said, "We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence.'Necessitous men are not free men.' People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made."

It is a testament to the OWS movement that even those sad dupes who align themselves with Faux News and the interests of billionaires in the hopes they will meet them for a beer will also reap the benefit of the movement's actions and get to live, once again, in a society that works for ALL - not just the top 1%. The 1% are "job creators," alright - in CHINA. The REAL "job creators" are in an economically-vibrant middle class - though, Faux News wants you to continue to believe in myths as you wait to be trickled on.

Don't like OWS? Really? Go beg your "betters" for a seat at the table as they decide how to slice and dice you, your family and your future. The FACT is, you're all just one layoff away from joining the movement - which is growing daily because the SYSTEM is sick. As Teddy Roosevelt said, "Too much cannot be said against the men of wealth who sacrifice everything to getting wealth. There is not in the world a more ignoble character than the mere money-getting American, insensible to every duty, regardless of every principle, bent only on amassing a fortune, and putting his fortune only to the basest uses —whether these uses be to speculate in stocks and wreck railroads himself, or to allow his son to lead a life of foolish and expensive idleness and gross debauchery… Such a man is only the more dangerous if he occasionally does some deed like founding a college or endowing a church, which makes those good people who are also foolish forget his real iniquity. These men are equally careless of the working men, whom they oppress, and of the State, whose existence they imperil… they are curses to the country."

Time to stand up and recreate an America that works for ALL!

The Lefty Occupiers will learn their own values will be used against them by the govt they helped elect. Our Rulers love to create unconstitutional laws that protect us from ourselves. Soon the govt will outlaw jugs of gasoline (Chuck Schumer will say they are the Terrorist weapon of choice).

What will we do when the govt turns off the electrical power for NYC ? How will people run their generators if jugs of gasoline are outlawed like guns are ? Hide your guns (I mean hide your gasoline jugs) the British are coming !

No trouble occupying the space between your ears though where there seems to be a huge vacancy.

OWS is a joke,they have celebrities like Russell Simmons,who happens to own a debit card company,as half ass spokes people.They complain about sharing their resources'with the homeless and less fortunate while asking Americans to give more.Last but not least OWS holds the banks responsible for government actions.It was the government that forced banks to give subprime loans and it was the government that handed banks tax-payers money,but OWS can't protest a democrat controlled government so they protest fellow Americans'.

Very predictable that the Communist/Socialist subversives have started violent confrontations with the police.

That's the way these people operate.

The kids and others who got caught up in it will pay the price when the government quells the violence with retaliation. The ones who started the violence will fade into the shadows so they can start the next riot while the dumb kids get hurt and jailed.

Blood will be shed before it's over! Mobs cannot be controlled in a riot and the criminal element will eventually find someone to blame and attack.

The subversives know that their only chance at success is to have rioting in the streets right up to the gates of the White House.
