    Re: Poll: Voters Viewing Occupy Wall St. Unfavorably

    the locals are getting rather tired of the whole thing


    ....With a little help from the residents of Lower Manhattan and a little more from the denizens of Occupy Wall Street’s tent city, significant parts of Community Board 1 (CB1) and the New York State legislature seem finally to have realized that they have been had.

    “We have had twelve meetings,” one member said last night during a CB1 session in City Hall, “and now we’ve given up.”..

    One resident summed it up perfectly: “This is about the law. They have been given a waiver for too long.” Indeed so, and they are reveling in it. Channeling John Adams, he made the compelling case that whether or not our elected representatives empathize with OWS is wholly irrelevant in a nation of laws and not men. “In this country, we do not get to pick and choose when and where the law is enforced,” he said. Unlike at the last such meeting, the sentiment resonated; it was generally conceded that previous resolutions at both the state and community-board levels — which routinely started with a statement of support and a reiteration of fealty to the First Amendment — were a big mistake. “We shouldn’t have expressed any political position” was the regretful consensus of the board....

    At the last meeting, as I reported, “some of the members of Community Board One took turns to make brief speeches. With the exception of one woman, who spoke movingly of the Zuccotti Park area having been ‘under siege’ for ten years, each endorsed the OWS movement.” This time, each took it in turns to express disappointment, concern, and even anger. The rebels have lost their enablers.

    “It’s a crime scene down there, and it’s attracting all of the worst people in this city,” said a board member. “We’re hearing reports of rapes, assaults, violence, drug use. The mentally ill are assembling. It’s a public hazard.” There is also concern for businesses. “At this rate, they’re not going to make it through the Christmas season,” the chair of the Small Business Committee said, bluntly...

    This morning, there are widespread reports that Mayor Bloomberg is finally losing patience with the camp. Judging by what I heard in City Hall yesterday evening, he is not alone.

    From the OP quote:
    ...30 percent of voters surveyed view the movement favorably, 39 percent unfavorably, with an additional 30 percent not hearing enough to have an opinion.
    Add them together and it's plain to see that the poll left out 1% of the voters. That wasn't very nice.

    You've never heard of the Quinnipiac poll ??? Really???

    It's a highly respected poll.

    It was one of those polls with "cheddar!" as an option; those people didn't need to be discussed in the article.

    Does this mean the revolution will be called off?
    Nope, this is when they will start resorting to violence. Big Labor has climbed into the pool so look out for floaters.

    If you get beyond the issue of the actual demonstrators involved in OWS and get to the issues that are behind the anger, the American public does indeed support those issues.
    Of course don't look at the people that are the FACE of the demonstrations, killing jobs, raping women, robbing fellow protesters, destroying property, and breaking the law....Nooooooo!


    Major issues like the growing inequity of income distribution
    There is NO such thing as "income distribution" so what the hell are you talking about?


    Wall Street greed and the methods used to fuel it

    Fannie and Freddie just asked for some $6 Billion more tax payer money, while giving themselves Millions in bonuses, but that's ok because they are GSE's right?


    and the growing gap between rich and poor have wide support among the American people.

    That GAP is fueled, made larger, and by plan I think instituted by your guy Obama and his failed policies for the past three years, almost 6 years if you include when congress and senate were taken over by liberal demos.

    Just another political hack journalist that used to work for the WaPo, and Washingtonian Magizine...So a liberal opinion backs your spew of talking point pap eh....I am shocked.

    I suspect that some Americans have allowed themselves to be led by the nose by the drumbeaters of the far right who want to demonize the OWS participants and paint them as anarchists pooping and peeing all over America and in bad need of a bath.
    Except that the OWS children are the actual "drumbeaters" in the park that are anarchists, Marxists, Communists, Union hacks, ACORN paid professional protesters and agitators, rapists, thieves, and generally sociatial misfits that unless they come to something like this would rarely see the outside of their mom and dad's basements. Oh, and they **** and piss in the open all over, and they need a bath.

    Others look deeper than that stupidity and see real issues that need to be addressed.
    Yeah, all the way deeper to a hack opinion piece from a hack fellow traveler supposed journalist like you did here.....HA!

    **** it... if the economy is going to crash anyways. Just keep protesting and shoulder the blame. Let the politicians get their way. Then put a stop too all this credit bull****. Legalize hemp. Become crazy producer of hemp based products and become a world super-manufacturer.

    If the politicians get to put the media spotlight on the protestors growing too much debt because the government is forcing themsleves upon free speech and drop the ball on the people. Let them. Someone has to eventually take responsability for our crazy debt. Might as well let OWS take the blame and pop the bubble so that we can have sound money in this country again. Resetting the bone hurts, but is neccesary when broken.
