    Big Win for 'Occupy Wall Street' Protesters?

    I feel like the owners of the Park chickened out and will use the cleanup operations protesters have embarked upon as the reason.
    I personally believe the Park's owners are afraid of the riot that was sure break.
    I also believe that some of the unwashed masses are hoping for a spark to set off riot to give these fools a chance to loot etc.

    Maybe the park owners really only had the concerns that they stated. And when those concerns were addressed, maybe they actually were satisfied.
    I may be wrong.

    Of course there were concerend about a riot. As we've seen before there are always some professional protesters and anarchists in the crowd just waiting to break some windows and turn over some cars. I think they just showed good sense.

    Bloomberg says the corporate owners are in discussions with OWS to set new ground-rules for the long-term occupation.

    Let 'em protest.

    This is the most effective - and cheapest - election gains the Republicans can possibly ask for.

    These are truly pathetic people. This is what happens when you don't bother to raise your children.

    Yeah, these brain addled, sweaty, unwashed, homosexual ridden, multi-cultural, lazy, aimless protesters certainly make me want to vote for Romney because...because...because he sure knows how to raise children.

    Republicans will gain more votes because people are protesting on Wall Street?

    Re: Big Win for 'Occupy Wall Street' Protesters?

    not sure it was a 'big win'
    they maintained a status quo, in that they were not displaced
    was that a good thing?
    how long will they last as cold weather intrudes itself? will the drive die out when the protesters (reasonably) seek shelter
    would regrouping at a later date and a later time kill the movement?
    will the potential "cleansing" of the assembly area/park and enforcement of new rules prohibiting encampments or even the possession of personal property or reclining on the lawn end the momentum
    that some of the protesters were thwarted from moving on wall street this morning ... was that a 'big win'

    we will have to wait and see how sustaining this movement can actually be
    for me, it's a coin toss
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed
