Yup, that's what Occupy Wall Street is about. Making a fool of yourself, blocking traffic, making it harder for middle class Americans to get to work while pissing and moaning about rich people having more money than lazy morons who like to get arrested. They did a fine job of reminding us who they are with their anniversary. Over 180 of the morons got arrested. Bravo. http://news.yahoo.com/more-180-occupy-wall-street-arrests-nyc-231530497.html

Unless they get arrested, they get little press. Their entire strategy for the one year anniversary was to generate arrests and press and ignite interest in themselves. Fortunately, the American public seems to have lost interest in their little whine-fest, regardless of their antics this time around.

It's sad but true. They can't get press otherwise, because they are too stupid to even know what they stand for. The Tea Parties didn't get press for a long time after they started. The reason they succeeded is that they had a clear, coherent message and everyone involved knew that "Taxed Enough Already" was it. If they didn't have a message, they would have been victims of the left wing media's attempt to define them as racist anti-government nuts.

"..would have been victims of the left wing media's attempt to define them as racist anti-government nuts." -- Of course the media still works at this and has even had some success, what with being a monopoly.. thanks goodness for public radio [the left tried to shut down, I forget the # or name of the bill, "fairness (rofl) doctrine"?], FOX News (one non-liberal mainstream media news outlet) and everyday people who work to combat aLL the misinformation.. after watching the movie 2016 I realize our media are traitors..

I saw this. These guys are not the sharpest tool in the shed. They are about a gallon short from a full gallon. They just do not make sense.

As I was reading the article you linked to, I was at the part about the airplane mechanic that was staying at his sisters but he planned to be arrested that night. Imagine you are an employer, you are interviewing this guy, looking at his background check. " I see you were arrested", imagine explaining that you were part of OWS. Lmao how would you as an employer look at this applicant? This is why they have time to protest!

I agree with you 100%! I have an 18 year old, just starting college. I have never allowed her to use her real name on facebook and other social media for this very reason. She now has a second account on each that simply show her as a professional (she is a business major with an emphasis on international). She shows her volunteer work and any professional issues. She has thanked me repeatedly. When you are 15 you do/say stupid things and she is very grateful that I didn't allow this to follow her.

Every time my husband hears about these folks or sees them on the tv, he says how is it they don't have jobs to go to everyday? He figures they are supported by the government and so do I. They look perfectly able to work to me! Must be that 70's radical book's game plan being followed "rules for radicals" how to collapse the u.s. system by too much debt! (Won't someone tell them it won't be pretty!!..)

I don't think they're supported by the government, they do have backing though. ACORN, or whatever they call themselves now, was literally hiring and paying people to be part of these protests. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/11/03/acorn-officials-scramble-firing-workers-and-shredding-documents-after-exposed/

http://dailycaller.com/2012/09/19/occupy-wall-street-chief-organizer-unravels-ponders-calling-it-quits/ NEW YORK β€” During the final moments of what was meant to be a weekend of rejuvenation for the Occupy Wall Street movement, a key organizer looked to call it quits. Aaron Black is a protester who emerged in recent months to take up the mantle of leadership within a movement that prides itself on being β€œleaderless.” He expressed his own frustration with Occupy Wall Street in a tone of defeat.

Ya, at their onset, I thought they had a good message and some good thoughts but I ALWAYS thought that their presentation was poor to put it mildly. As time went on, I just stopped listening to them. Those of us who really might possibly legitimatly have something to say on these matters are too busy working to get by to be out there whining day after day. Anyone who has hours of time to stand around whining and blocking traffic is as much a part of the problem as the people they are supposedly protesting. Maybe more of a problem...probably. I stopped listening to them a long time ago and I think many of us did.

It's funny. The behavior the main stream media wanted to attach to the Tea Party applies more accurately to the Occupy Wall Street crowd, and how much do you hear from them about that behavior compared to what you heard about the very little misbehaving by the Tea Party?
