    Re: Occupy Oakland protesters remove barricade at port entrance

    My guess is the 1% are needing their diapers' changed about now. It is clear this movement is not going away and new people are joining. People who are angry enough to camp out in all sorts of weather and risk arrest will most certainly go to the polls. While the recent violence has dropped the portion of people who 'strongly support' OWS, they are still over twice as popular as the Tea Party.

    And? New York is a blue state, that poll is neither surprising or revealing. It be like posting a poll from Texas which would likely be similar, just opposite results.

    I'd like to see similar comparison in places like VA, FL, PA, OH, NC, etc. Swing states.

    If voting could change anything that mattered, it would be illegal. Most people don't bother to vote... my hypothesis is that's because they're routinely given a choice between two establishment-backed tools that both suck pretty badly.

    The ballot box can only get you so far when the political process is a sham. The street and the mob are NOT Obama's.

    You are just silly. The 1% is LAUGHING at this ****. You think these people are impacting the 1%? They have what is known in the financial world "**** you money". Who this is impacting is all the retirees, the lower to middle income folks who have their retirement and 401ks tied up in the markets. These protesters are cutting their own throats and arent smart enough to see it.

    Ah...so its violence and murder you see in the future. Well...THAT should get very interesting. I wonder what side the 53% will land on should come to that...the part of society that BUILT society or the 47% that cant employ or provide for themselves, let alone provide for others. Yes...this kind of rhetoric should lead to some fun times indeed.

    I don't know. On some levels I think it's getting to be about high time for a little of the good ol' American rebellion.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
