    Before I read this, CG, I was all for these demonstrators. Here I thought they were demonstrating against derivative crapola and high CEO salaries. Now I see they're for illegal immigration (making it all legal), forgiveness of all indebtedness (what???), being unable to track someone's credit before loaning them money, banning private insurers and letting the government rape us instead...and a variety of other demands that all spell one word: Socialism.

    That's just a post by someone on the forums. Here's why the site says the protests are about

    Occupy Wall Street is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. We are using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants.

    404, link not found, but it looks as already mentioned to just be some guy on a forum message board.

    OK, got a working link: Proposed List Of Demands For Occupy Wall St Movement! | OccupyWallSt.org Forum

    Surprise, it was the Gateway Pundit that pushed this. They have a long history of dishonest "reporting".

    Let's look at the opening of the post, which was not surprisingly left out of your post:

    Admin note: This is not an official list of demands. This is a forum post submitted by a single user and hyped by irresponsible news/commentary agencies like Fox News and Mises.org. This content was not published by the OccupyWallSt.org collective, nor was it ever proposed or agreed to on a consensus basis with the NYC General Assembly. There is NO official list of demands.
    Epic fail there guy.

    seems to generally match their Official Statement of Facts; i would hardly be surprised to find strong support for just those demands among the crowd of bozo's wasting daddy's money in the streets.

    ...As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

    As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known....

    They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless nonhuman animals, and actively hide these practices....

    They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right....

    They have sold our privacy as a commodity.

    They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press....

    They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil....

    They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.

    They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.

    They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.

    They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.

    They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts....
    and so on and so forth.

    see above. free college is a human right, and expecting us to pay for it, or pay back the people who loaned us money to get our education is mean.

    Again, not from the groups website. I wonder why that is? I wonder why the actual official site has nothing like that that I can find, but does have this page:About Us | OccupyWallSt.org

    You are failing pretty miserably at smearing people with lies. Why not try honesty?

    You are assuming he is actually reading what other people post. I find that slightly unlikely.
