Why oppose something that can only help every American if it succeeds but do no harm to anyone if it fails!?

If you oppose it, then get over yourself.

If what succeeds? You dont even have a plan. Take the money from one and give to another? Give away free stuff? Free College? Free healthcare? Free Lunch?

Your just proving my point. You are brainless. Where do you think this money will come from?

So then Obama's stimulus worked and there are TONS of jobs to go around?

I have a question. If companies like Exxon, G.E., Amazon, Boeing, etc pay zero taxes and get refunds worth over a billion... who pays for that?

Do you realize that comes off the backs of the REAL job creators.... small business, who just happen to make up the 99%. Now how is asking these corporations who pay zero taxes and get billion dollar refunds on the backs of the 99% to pay their fair share socialism?

Wouldn't giving them these refunds be Corporate Welfare and Socialism?

And where in the world do you think the government gets it from? They get it from the tax payers. You want them to take it from those who earn it & give it to those who don't. Also if you're upset about a company like GE not paying taxes, you should be occupying Washington DC - that's where the laws are made that these companies are following.

Gotta love the occupiers - nobody steals, rapes, pimps out their daughters, defecates on police cars, pedals heroin, or gets stoned like they do. What a great country it'd be if they were running the whole show.

Hey can you say "No Clue?"

What Good God doesnt understand(because he probably pays no taxes)where the gov gets its money. From taxing working people that are out busting their butts instead of protesting. You got to be a young kid. No one with any years on them would post something so stupid!

Exxon got a tax return worth 3.2 billion and paid zero taxes... who pays for that?

If you wanna say working people... I agree, if you wanna say small business owners I'll agree... just answer me... who pays for that? You? Are you DEFENDING Exxon getting YOUR tax dollars? BTW, I am a 40 yr old small business owner with a wife and 2 kids, but thanks for stereotyping me.

Most of you occupyers are Obama supporters. Obama supports the Occupyers. Obama wont tax his buddies at GE that paid 0 taxes. Obama has his head so far up GEs butt he s not gonna make them pay. He wants to come after you and I for more taxes. Even if the companies would pay more and we pay more they NEVER will get enough. They will always spend more than they take in. No matter what!

If your really a small business owner what the hell are you supporting these people for. Take some time and read what their goals are. They want redistribution of wealth. They are wanting a hand out from the government. They want it all. Its not just about big corp profits and taxes. They want ALL the corp profits! They are nuts. Make drug companies not for profit? Make health care not for profit? Socialize all these big companies and what is the reason for inovation? Why work hard to make a new product if you can profit from it. Most understand this movement is for nuts and loafers thats why it will fail.
If you really work hard and your small business ever made it really big would you want to give it away to a bunch of people that dont want to work hard? Would you want the government and a bunch of sign carrying nuts telling you what to do with your hard earned money? I think not, you would want to pass it down to those kids you mentioned. Right?

Since a corporation is not a person, how does a corporation "pay taxes"? what is your small business? how much did your "business" pay in taxes last year?

Even if your scenario is correct & Exxon paid no taxes - you're question doesn't make sense? Who pays for that? What do you mean who pays for it? Just becaue they didn't pay taxes, doesn't mean it came out of someone else's pockets. The American economy is not a zero sum game - meaning if someone makes $1000 that someone else must've lost $1000. Once again you're going after the company instead of the people who make the laws. If you don't like the fact that these guys pay no taxes, you should be occupying Washington, DC. Also, more important than how much a corporation pays in taxes, I'd say look at how many people make their living on that company. There are over 27,000 Exxon employees in Houston, TX alone, not to mention all of the construction people that build their facilities. That means in one city alone, Exxon is responsible for providing a good standard of living for probably more than 30,000 familes & all of those families pay taxes & contribute to their society. If you idiots had you're way, you'd bankrupt the corprations by taxing them to death, thus causing them to move to another company & what does that get you? I'll tell you, it gets you - 30,000 people that that have to find another way to provide for their families (or depend on the government to take care of them (which is what liberals love)). That's just in Houston, TX alone. Quit whining & start trying to achieve some success on your own other rather than wanting to get it off the backs of others.

If that is the plan, why isn't it called 'Occupy Washington'?

It's not, because it's an attack on free market Capitalism. If you don't like Capitalism, move to a socialist country (...but of course, you won't).

If it weren't for Capitalism, socialist instigators like Michael Moore would never have had the opportunity to become the rich men they are.
