People do not appreciate this riot nonsense. They want to be left alone and allowed to do business with people they want.

The only monopolies are those granted by government.

Because they can't tell the difference between hating the game, and hating the player.

Occupy Wall Street has been dubbed the largest gathering of highly educated people in opposition of something. Or some such moniker.

When wicked smart people feel this passionately about something, it would do us some good to listen to what they have to say, whether we agree or not.

It ain't a partisan issue, it's an issue of respect.

I thought Americans were republicans.

No, we're conservatives. And hence the revolt known as the Tea Party.

This ain't a riot bro'

This ain't a matter of rich people "stealing" money ... bro'

If it was you all would have a case. You don't.

I can assure you that point will be brought up over and over.

Because, if it is good enough for victims of violence to have to take people to court in order to seek remedy, then it is good enough for a bunch of rioting bozo's.

The Banksters virtually bring down the world economy, using LOTS of fraud and dangerous techniques in the process, and NOBODY goes to jail and there's hardly any criminal investigation.

Some people non-violently protest that and Hundreds are arrested or cited.

And some of you squarely blame the protesters.

You are cuckholders

The Bankers broke plenty of laws. They are negotiating for immunity from state attorney generals as we speak. Why do that if you are innocent? No accountability, no personal or corporate responsibility. They got HUGE government bailouts and still aren't living up to their side of the bargain by loaning again.

but yeah, all that responsibility speech from the GOP is just for poor people

cuckholders

Peace

WE are a nation made up of immigrants who have a wide range of opinions on a myriad of topics. Not, as Bluering says, a nation of conservatives.

Bluering,

As a well known supporter of the people in uniform, can you emphatically state they don't feel cheated for their service ? Iraq and Afghanistan were about oil acquisition. even arch Republican Greenspan admitted that on retirement.

Maybe people really getting shot at for principles would like the reason to be valid.

Occupy Wall Street: NYPD Arrests 700 Protesters On Brooklyn Bridge [LATEST UPDATES]
Occupy Wall Street


Hundreds of people protesting Wall Street abuses were penned in and arrested by police Saturday, two weeks into an ongoing demonstration that has become known on Twitter as #OccupyWallStreet.

Centered at Zuccotti Park since September 17, the gathering that began as a call to arms from anti-consumerist magazine AdBusters has shown no sign of a slowdown.

The movement aims to "express a feeling of mass injustice," according to the group’s declaration for the occupation of New York City released Friday. The injustices include the foreclosure crisis, work place discrimination and student loan debt, among a list of others.

As HuffPost reported recently, the movement is less about specific policy demands and more about an expression of opposition to ever yawning economic inequality driven by Wall Street and its allies in Washington.

Calling themselves an American revolution, the protesters say they plan to stay in the park indefinitely.

Greg Basta, an official with New York Communities for Change, said that the organizers were encouraged by police on Saturday to march on the street area of the Brooklyn Bridge, instead of the walkway, then subsequently arrested them for marching in traffic. Two lead organizers, Jonathan Westin and Pete Nagy, were penned in by police. Westin managed to exit the police pen, but Nagy is missing and presumed detained by police, Basta told HuffPost.

"Police say some demonstrators spilled onto the roadway Saturday night after being told to stay on the pedestrian pathway," the Associated Press reported.

Similar demonstrations started Saturday in Washington and Los Angeles.

Shon Botado, a protester staffing a first aid station in New York, told The Huffington Post on Friday that he’s not leaving “until change is made to the financial structure.”

Don't hold your breath. Like all dissent in recent times, it will be suppressed.
