    Wow. Staggering.

    Nope "You Tube". they seem so impressed by themselves they put every video up they can. The comedy of some of it is pretty good.

    Protesters are often the thinkers. The ones not satisfied just being a cog, looking down and advancing the machinery without question. They question, they dissent, they stand against the machine when it is necessary. Freedom must be maintained, the Republic must be kept. And you cannot do that with mere cogs.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    No one will hire these kids. They are interpretive street dancers, face painters, professional bums. And theres more... But I don't want to waste your time.
    Go get that paper boo boo.
    I'm also having a hard time understanding your points.

    These are truly pathetic people. This is what happens when you don't bother to raise your children.
    Perhaps it's better to raise them to create messes that get's the country into the hole trillions of dollars?

    Thinkers, as in great political and economical minds that try to figure out how to fix problems.
    Protestors, as in fed up youth/older gents and ladies whose dissatisfied with the happenings and going on and want to tell the THINKERS what they all got riled up about.

    Can you show us some new ones here?

    Not just the ones posted repeatedly already?

    From what I've been able to gather the occupiers are engaging in a solution finding exercise.

    A very public discussion to decide what the actual problems are and what would be the best solution.

    That apparently what's going on in the "general assembies" we keep hearing about.
    Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:
