    What is is about people that think you need to be dirt poor to have a voice about how we`re ALL being screwed by the banks? There`s working class poor, the middle class, students and elderly that all can afford a starbucks coffee, but can barely afford to take a day off work for an illness if they needed to.
    I think the OWS haters tend to be the ones that have a hard time comprehending it.

    Protesters aren`t allowed to have a cup of Joe? So this picture is the incontrovertible proof that this man and the OWS protesters as a whole are corporate loving supporters of the 1%? Oh please this argument is absurd. The people who attempt to minimize this movement are as dumb as the pepper-spray cop.

    Sorry, but what the hell does the kind of coffee he`s drinking have to do with the protest? Starbucks have a product saturation policy, which means that no matter where you are, chances are that the nearest coffee outlet is a Starbucks. Last time I checked, Starbucks were a coffee chain, not an investment bank - criticising protesters for drinking Starbucks (or whatever other big brand they might use) is just classic misdirection away from the actual point of the protest.

    Yes. OWS isn`t a movement of the poor. I for one have a lot of savings and still occupy because I am concerned for the future of our rights/society.

    Last time I checked, Starbucks didn`t recieve a government bailout.

    All you need to know about Republican solutions to this country`s problems is that their response to OWS is "get a job."

    F*cking unemployment is at 9%, and in the Republican mind, that is the fault of lazy workers, not money-hording rich people and corporations whose bottom lines are increasing while they lay off employees....

    And the Republican solution? Give rich people and corporations MORE money, that way they will create jobs......ooooooooookkkkkkkkkkkkk, because that has worked SO WELL over the last decade while the disparity between the rich and poor is increasing at an accelerating rate due in no small part to massive tax cuts for the extremely wealthy.

    To be fair, there is a bit of laziness. In areas where they have been cracking down on illegal immigrants very few Americans filled in those jobs. Some farmers have fields rotting because they can`t get enough people to come out and pick because it`s too beneath them.

    I was waiting for something like OWS to happen, and it sprang into life organically. The debate can no longer be ignored. The tax code is skewed towards the rich. It is time to correct that mistake.

    Is that an argument for or against "cracking down" on illegal immigrants? Dumbf*ck Republicans, filled with bigoted hatred of hispanics and lacking even a basic understanding of the way the agrarian economies actually function in America, enact anti-immigration laws so draconian they damage their own economies, then they decry the laziness of the American worker. It was fine before you ass*oles f*cked it up!

    @gj
    It`s not an argument for or against anything, it`s a statement of fact. I don`t know how you think you can label me as a republican, but if you`re ignorant enough to stick your head in the dirt and ignore the couple million unfilled jobs in the US then you might as well be a republican yourself. This is not a debate on immigration law, the point was clearly about the unemployment rate. There ARE lazy/prideful Americans of any and all political persuasions that would rather not work than take a couple part time jobs.

    I don`t know why people think Starbucks is an evil cooperation. Their coffee is all fair-trade, which makes them practically a charity. That`s why the coffee is expensive, it`s to keep the people who grow it from starving.

    I-is-bored, Americans aren`t being lazy, the reason we won`t do farm work is because it doesn`t pay for crap. You`d be better off working at McDonalds for the pay you get. The reason illegal immigrants are such a big labor force is because they can`t get other kinds of work, they can only get jobs that pay extremely little because the employers are exploiting them.

    Really? So your theory is we`ve experienced a sudden spike in laziness? Prior to the housing bubble bursting America had an unemployment rate right around 4%. Those people may well be lazy but that is their right under our system. I doubt that`s the case, I think we have people with mental problems that make them unemployable, lack of housing, criminal records there`s a host of reasons why someone might not be employed. It takes the simple mind of a republican to state unequivocally that our unemployment rate is due to American laziness. Nut-jobs, the lot of them.

    Thanks to Barak Obama!!! That`s what we righties rightly think @goaliejerry, not your lib-tard fantasy. It was Obama who gave the big companies MORE money in his bailout, but you`ve conveniently forgotten that...
    And furthermore it was Obama who called Americans "a little bit lazy" in a speech, you`ve forgotten that too?
    ORGANICALLY!!! LMAO! Oh @goalie, you crack me up with your wild jokes!

    Prior to the housing bubble bursting America had an unemployment rate right around 4%.

    This is a great picture. It`s kind of like that picture posted earlier that got about 300 comments.

    If I could use Photoshop (hell, if I could AFFORD Photoshop), I would photoshop everything off this guy that he`s protesting. I would take away his coffee cup, his corporate-made coat and his greedy capitalist made backpack and all his clothes made from child labor. I would even take off his Fruit of the Loom underwear.

    Picture it, picture it, picture it. This my friends, is no more than a howler monkey.

    Great picture!

    Some are still not able to grasp the difference between the drated up system that allows the the big corporations ( i.e. Investment banks, big farma, fossil fuel co. Subsidized unsustainable agreeculture, weapons & war benefitting industry ect) to abused the very sanctity of life and the capitalist business that provided goods and servilces of high quality and high prices (I.e. Apple or starbucks or jaguar)
    People don`t have problem with people or businesses making lots of money in the` free market`.
    Problem is with the institutionalization of the greed and perversion power with ill gotten wealth.

    Yes, thank you Barack Obama for bringing unemployment under 10%. Republican leaders don`t want unemployment to fall under Obama or he will be re-elected. The last thing they want is for the economy to rise under President Obama. The Republican leaders do not have Americans interests in mind. During a recession is when you compromise for the better good. The Republican leaders are behaving in an un-American way.

    Wow so none of you are capable of not being an extremist? Rotting fields of fruit driving up the cost of goods and not paying Americans at legally enforced rates means nothing to you?

    @Madest When did I say that caused the economic problems the US and the rest of the world are facing? And when the F(_)CK did I say "our unemployment rate is due to American laziness." Was it here? "To be fair, there is a bit of laziness." Don`t drating put words in my mouth. I never denied the existence of the growing divide between the rich and the middle/poor or the way corporations are doing business these days. All I did was agree AND present another part of the situation because it is NOT a problem with ONE cause.
    @SarahofBorg When mcdonalds already has as many employees as it needs? Every minimum wage job is going to pay you the same rate and ANY money is more than ZERO money.

    @I-IS-BORED: Where do I say that?
    Obama (& the Dems) promised HIS bailout would keep unemployment under 7%, did he not?
    The Dems brought the first bailout in, signed by Bush, correct?
    The policies that cause the housing bubble (which ignited the recession) were from Clinton.

    Dem, Dem, Repub, Dem, Dem. That`s who`s to blame, m-kay?
    You have a better explaination? Or do you just blame Bush for everything, like @madest?

    It would have been incredibly difficult for Obama to keep unemployment under 7%, given that it was over 7% when he took office.

    In fact, between his election in November and taking office at the end of January, the unemployment rate leaped from 6.8% to 8.2%, then it continued up to 10.1%.

    Secondly, you bring up WMDs in a discussion about unemployment? You truely are an idiot @madest, and I mean that sincerely.


    See here @skine? I was wrong, he promised to keep it under 8%, not 7. But in fact unemployment was still under 6% when he took office, so there!

    1 liter = .2642 Gallons
    1 Barrel Of Oil = 158.987 Liters
    so 42.004 Gallons in 1 barrel.

    Say gas is 3.50 a gallon, 3.50x42.004= $147.01 for a barrel of gasoline.

    Say his cup of coffee is a 3.00 grande latte,
    16oz -> .4731 L -> .1250 Gallons.
    $1008.096 a barrel.

    At least we know he won`t ever be complaining about gas prices. And imagine if he had one of those $5.00 Froo-froo candy bar beverages!
