    I hear you!

    But that actually sounds a little harsh to me.

    Not my point. Labor unions, long known to be bastions of unbridled corruption, calling wall street, or any other orginization, corrupt. Irony.

    Maybe the goon Jimmy Hoffa, Jr can give a speech on the lack of corruption in the union movement. I would love to read that speech.

    expressing anger for the purpose of expressing anger, is stupid.

    this movement has no goals or agenda, and I hope my union stays out of it.

    Judging from this thread, Tea Party conservatives only like grassroots organizing and groups with similar ideas / goals joining together when it fits with their beliefs.
    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    No, it's smart and healthy as long as it's done in a non-violent manner. Expressing anger in a rational manner lets you understand if your anger has a reasonable basis and if so to do something about it, or if not, to understand that and let it dissipate. People who hold onto their anger or try to suppress it might end up with a violent outburst, or causes friction in their relationships or problems in their life. With regards to the public, they have a right to express their anger at public policy, it's also healthy so that others who feel the same know they have solidarity and maybe form a movement to the institute the changes they want to see in their government and society.

    Now the changes they want to see happen might be stupid - but that's subjective and a separate issue.

    I absolutely want these useful idiots on TV. Conservative parents can use the protestors brain dead rantings as a tool to educate their children on what happens when people are told there is a free lunch.

    Not really...Public Divided on Occupy Wall Street Protesters - Rasmussen Reports™

    According to a new poll by Rasmussen Reports, 33 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the Occupy Wall Street protesters (only 27 percent have a negative view, while 40 percent have no opinion). Most importantly, 79 percent of Americans agree with the protesters primary point that the “The big banks got bailed but the middle class got left behind.”
