    Re: Labor Unions Join Wall Street Occupiers for "Mass Rally'

    I saw an interview with a wannabe hippie looking kid whining that he had a college education and couldn’t get a job. Unemployment for people with a degree is 4.2%, maybe he should of got a degree in something other than liberal arts or just look harder for a job instead of wasting time protesting.

Left out? Then maybe you ought to look at yourself and YOUR role.
    i believe it is this inequitable distribution which is being addressed:

    that's correct - they are currently camping out in the street somewhere.

    so let's see if we have this right:

    thus far, you have accused me of making stuff up, so I cited NPR. then you offered that i could be lying, but it was linked. Then you argued that we were linking right wing sites to give off left-wing talking points, so maybe those sites were making things up. Then it turned out that the site linked was a left wing site which had put up the Statement of Facts because they were excited about and supported the OWS protests...

    your continued attempts to deny that they released this are getting bizzare. as it is precisely the kind of mumbo-jumbo that you'd expect out of these crowds, i'll admit I'm confused as to why you persist.

    It was only a matter of time 'til someone pointed this out.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    There is nothing wrong with corporations, but there is something very wrong with a lack of social responsibility.

    well then the whole purpose is a crock. we have had endless attempts to keep people in houses they never should have bought because they couldn't afford. we have extended unemployment ad nauseum. more people are on government aid than ever before - 47% of households receive one federal program or another. all these students protesting that they have to pay back their loans had their loans federally subsidized in the first place.

    just like in Greece, this isn't the "left out" crowd hitting the streets - it's the recipients of government largesse, demanding more.

    they typically have - which is odd considering that social security is designed to help the poor the least. you would think given that set up that there would be room for acceptance of Republican calls to means-test them.
    What is bolded is exactly right. The real impetus to government protests and bitching and whining about the rich come very abled bodied people that come frorm the middle class and higher backgrounds who want their government free ride because they just don't feel liket they should be forced to compete for what they need to get by every day. They don't have the ambition or desire to work their way up through the ranks and are jealous of others success at doing so. They are a bunch of pseudo anarchists who are as disengenous as they can be about helping the poor and truly needy. It's mostly about them. They'd love to see a world where they could pick up a monthly check to get themselves by and spend a lot of their days reading the paper at the local coffee shop and bitching some more about what others have that they don't.
