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.

@auburnjunky

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.

sorry occupiers - I'll have to let everyone else with the jobs that let you walk out for a day without the diciplinary action (i.e. your ass gets fired)

@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.

Obama is at 54% corporate contributions so far for this campaign, but look at his totals. Heinous amount of money considering our financial situation in this country.

Major corporations are responsible for over 60% of all Liberals campaign contributions. They are responsible for 35% or conservative contributions. Just sayin'.

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

"I'm an idiot who got into debt because I'm living outside of my means! I want all the people who LOANED me money to ignore my debt, so I can keep everything I have!"

Ugh... I hate this crap.

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.

IKR?! This movement doesn't even know what it wants. It is turning into an excuse to be poor.

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?

I don't want to be part of your collective future. I want my own individual future where I take showers and don't have to worry about getting a contact high.

Get rid your debt by not getting an education and/or possibly getting fired NOW!

Do the people who make these things even bother to think?
