"If it wasn`t for corporations, they`d all be running around in grass skirts trying to spear their dinner with pointed sticks and wiping their @$$es with leaves." this is true, but the people that do the work, and the people that get paid for doing the work are two diffrent sets of people. You will not see a board member"who takes the lions share of profit with very little personal risk) doing any thing but trying to squeeze more money out of whatever product they pedal. They do very little to actually design manufacture or distribute the product or service they offer. they pay engineers and workers for that. WE DO NOT NEED THE PEOPLE AT THE TOP...only those who "look out for themselves first" make it to the top in business and politics these days, if you can even differentiate the two at this point.We are now led by a small group of parasites who have no concern for the direction our species takes.

I don`t see this working out somehow.

I`m on their side, but I don`t think enough people are willing to risk their jobs.

Kain1-"i don`t understand how people who obviously possess a fair amount of intelligence can be against this."

Then that demonstrates a comprehension problem on your part.

Kain1-"Even if the education system was much better than it actually is"

That`s not going to happen with it being perpetuated by the liberal teaching unions.

Angelmassb-"Remember remember the 2th of November"

Remember, remember the 2th of November. The Wall Street Occupation was naught. I know of no reason Occoupy Wall Street`s treason should ever be bought.

@Kain1, they are irrelevant for the exact reason you pointed out... THE GOVERNMENT no longer serves the people, so they are protesting WALL STREET. That is why the OWS movement is meaningless, they aren`t protesting the government. In fact, they are pro-government, they just think the money should be given to THEM, not corporations. They have no clue what capitalism or a free market is, they don`t understand how the economy works, they have no knowledge of american history.

This country was founded on the principle of having a decentralized government, and currently the majority of people don`t even understand the difference between federal and state government. Sorry but that`s sad.

Wouldn`t it be great if all the "evil" corporations went on strike against these morons? Just think of it -- no food, no water, no shelter, no clothes, no TV, no computers, no Internet, no phones, no lights, no cars, no toilets, no medicine, or anything else produced by corporations.

If it wasn`t for corporations, they`d all be running around in grass skirts trying to spear their dinner with pointed sticks and wiping their @$$es with leaves.

It is nice to see people marching/occupying for what they believe in, it is the opposite of making the cause look silly, it is noble and right.
I would like to live in a better world, where the richest 1% do not control society, I honestly think that would be a better world for all of us.

At the 0:20 mark, you can see people rush over to Scott Olsen (veteran who`s laying on the ground) to help.

at 0:30 mark, you can see another projectile thrown into the crowd helping him out.

They show it again in slow motion. Judge for yourself.

@auburnjunky- I found out about the police going berserk on the Daily Show. Went to youtube and saw about the marine getting his skull fractured, I don`t think the media are that fond of this movement. The videos i saw were cops repeatedly shooting tear gas into the crowd at close range, even as they were helping to carry the veteran away. And were they throwing things like u say, before or after being shot at with tear gas? Our government goes around calling for regime change when foreign people are being abused but turn a blind to whats happening to their own people.

Voting the corrupt politicians out of office would be the ideal way of doing it, i completely agree.. The problem however, is that there are so mindbogglingly many sheep in the US.. Stupid people who don`t know that europe is a continent, not a country.. they think what they`re told to think and vote how they`re told to vote.. Even if the education system was much better than it actually is, it would probably be something like 30 years before enough ignorant people have died off, so that some actual change can be implemented through elections..

And as you pointed out, a coup is out of the question... So how would you suggest they proceed?

@Kain1 That would be like saying "evolution isn`t true, because Darwin married his cousin"..

Well of course. Marrying your cousin would sure to result in some mutated genes, therefore, kickstarting evolution. Duh.

@Kain: Throwing a strike, or having violent protests, is not the way to effect change. You can either vote out the offenders, and elect trustworthy, patriotic countrymen, or you can form an army and actually overthrow your leaders.

We can`t possibly do the second, so the first is what we are gonna hafta do.

Staging some misled, misunderstood sit ins won`t do anything, except make your cause look silly.

"Say no to debt and austerity." Hmmm, seems to me that they don`t go hand in hand. It`s either austerity, or you rack up debt.

Shows the general intelligence of people who think a general strike is the best way of accomplishing anything other than getting fired for being a douche.

I just don`t get it.. i don`t understand how people who obviously possess a fair amount of intelligence can be against this.. It is blindingly painfully obvious that the american government has been corrupted by corporate contributions and the strings attached to them.. The government is no longer primarily serving the people, and the banks are allowed to exploit the people.. That`s basically why they`re protesting.. It`s not about politics, it`s about not getting drated up the ass..

And yes, there is a large number of dirty hippies in the crowd. But that doesn`t make their message any less valid.. That would be like saying "evolution isn`t true, because Darwin married his cousin"..

Just had the word from a family member who owns two small businesses and employes just over 25 people: He will be accepting applications for employment to fill `X` number of vacant positions on Nov. 3rd. (`X = the number of his employees who lay out on Nov. 2nd`)

"When they say something, a group of people then repeat it after them to burn the message into their brain and get them used to yelling at everyone. "

I don`t know if you`re kidding, but just so you know, they do that so that even people who aren`t right next to the speaker can hear the speaker. It`s a substitute for using a megaphone.

"Iraq Veteran Scott Olsen was shot in the face by a police projectile. Now in the hospital with fractured skull and brain swelling.

They need to understand that firing on war veterans and peaceful unarmed protesters will get them no where."

They were rioting, and using glass bottles, and slingshots against police. That`s neither peaceful, or unarmed.

You are a media sheep.

Want to protest banks?
Stop using your credit and atm cards. Use cash. Deny them the percentage of the sale they charge. Deny them the interest they charge you.

I never said it was. If anything, it`s anti-liberal, anti-established protocol.

Established protocol (i.e. tax and spend, same poo different day) is a VERY liberal agenda.

I agree wholly with this campaign. I personally think the best way to resist and to strike everything is to kill yourself. This would solve so many problems... overcrowding, lack of jobs, not enough money, no medical insurance. The benefits to killing yourselves is absolutely awesome! Unfortunately I will be sick that day and cannot participate, but I promise to die of old age eventually.

What on earth makes you think this is a liberal movement? The OWS movement is about, among other things, getting money out of politics, in regards to BOTH parties. No one`s saying that liberal politicians are righteous do-gooders who could never be corrupted by corporations. And just because conservatives receive less money from corporations doesn`t mean they aren`t bought; it just means they`re bought for less.

@GhettoNinja some people at OWS really do just want all their self earned debt and schooling paid for, for no reason. I realize that isn`t the even the majority of protesters, and that OWS as a movement isn`t declaring that as a goal, but some idiots really do just want everything paid for and done for them. No earning a job, no making their own money, they think that just because corporations have screwed people over, that everyone is free to just stop and let government pay for them to live.

Go to work and make something of yourself? Hey I got an idea, why don`t I go into politics and get fat bribes from corporate monkeys to do things the way they want.

Or how about I work to get a job on Wall Street, so I can rip off, embezzle, insider trade, or just go with the tried and true ponzi scheme. At worst I will hopefully get a cushy job with a fat bonus for me at years end.

The more you try to make it about people just being lazy and needing to get jobs, the more you look like an ahole.

I am gainfully employed. And I am with the OWS movement 100%. I am tired of my leaders being on the payroll of big business.

How long did politicians take money from RJ Reynolds to keep the legislation going the way THEY wanted?

How much money did Dick Cheney make from our wars with his links to Xe (Blackwater)?

Over a billion dollars will be spent on campaigning this coming election. Care to guess how much money will go from lobbyist p

So far all I`ve seen from OccupyWhatever has been attempts at brainwashing.

When they say something, a group of people then repeat it after them to burn the message into their brain and get them used to yelling at everyone.

And now they want everyone to quit whatever they`re doing and be hippies like them.

BRAINWASHING!

not gonna work.

Say NO to Debt and Austerity???? The debt is partially there because of the lack of austerity geniuses.

How about you work to make something of yourself? Maybe protest the government that makes the rules instead of the business who find a way to profit from them?
