crab66: One thing to keep in mind is that OWS never really had the kind of corporate, political or media outlet backing that the Tea Party has.Yes there are few wealthy people here and there but it does not have systemic support.
Arkanaut: Wait, the Illuminati are behind OWS? THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING.
hovsm: Why do they keep saying they are the 99% when only about 1% of the 99% actually are a part of the demonstrations?
links136: that's pretty farking immature by them. You know what, all american's really suck, eh.
Science_Guy_3.14159: OWS just went full retard, never go full retard
Lundyn: The real question here is...will bunny ears be involved?
Rhames: RIP Tom n Jerry

Nightsweat: One of the reasons the Iraq War protests never got the traction the Vietnam ones did was that the far left (no, the real far left, not the people Republicans like to imagine are far left) would cram all kinds of shiat into the protest. Instead of focusing on JUST the war, there were gay rights, immigration rights, anti-NAFTA, fair trade, transgender, pay equity - you name it - signs and people who would take the podium and try to get the crowd fired up over their pet issue instead of focusing on the broadly unpopular war.I attended two of the protests in 2002 and left each halfway through with a sense of "What the fark was that"?
Hagenhatesyouall: Science_Guy_3.14159: OWS just went full retard, never go full retardJust?They've been full retard since day 1.
splohn: And they shower.
WarszawaScream: Waahhhh we can't have things exactly the way we want it so we're going to biatch and cry and make a stink.Sort of like how our huge student loans that we knew we were borrowing aren't paying themselves and nobody cares that we're saddled with them.Cry me a farking river, I paid mine off with my at-the-time-barely-20k a year salary. Know why? I didn't borrow outside of my means or bank on grabbing that 60k a year job that everyone always expects to get right out of college and no one ever does.I can't stand that entitlement bull. I suppose a lot of what OWS is about, but that shiat right there... ugh.
