    The Occupy Whatever movement has officially "jumped the shark".

    If they are waiting for a decision on their status from the State it typically takes a LONG time for such.

    Weird!

    It's a lie.

    Nonsense.... I can transfer from my bank, to my CU, in seconds. lo.,

    Then again, this is the same crowd that when asked who momar quadaffi was, 1 in 5 didn't know and several thought he was the shish kabob pushcart connector at the sw corner.

    After reading the article, I understand why the Oakland chapter did what they did, but I, even as a supporter of the OWS movement, still find it somewhat funny.

    I wonder if the Occupy folks realized they were sleeping in Chinese-made tents?

    I have on a couple of occasions had funds put on hold when I deposited a rather large check. but that happens whether it is a bank or a CU
