    so, if OWS is now protesting Obama....how come all the Conservatives aren't now praising OWS?

    Will you be voting for him this go round?

    I'm a Green and it is highly unlikely I will vote for Obama unless anything else would be a wasted vote. I'd vote for Ron Paul. No other Repugnican is even remotely sane. I don't see a Green candidate on the horizon, but that is where I would like to waste my vote. I admit to voting for Obama in this recent election. Big disappointment, but still better than any other "Corporate" stooge. I feel Obama is owned by David Rockefeller (Exxon/Mobil, JPMorgan Chase, Rockefeller Foundation, Federal Reserve Banks, large interest via antitrust settlements in all energy companies, etc.)but I might be wrong because the DuPonts still have some power. Same ownership for Hilary. Not good.

    Likely for the same reason all the liberals didn't jump on board when the Tea Party was complaining about the bail-outs. People are reluctant to let go of their prejudices.

    those are certainly the majority of the people who populate the occupy austin action. this is austin though and these kids aren't as bad off as in other places. i wouldn't call their emotional drive to be coming from bitterness as righteous indignation.

    the occupy movement is anarchistic and non-partisan at it's core. people like myself, believe in the system and are opposed to the people who have suborned it. some are leftist, some are rightist and some want to see the whole thing crumble and humans scattered into smaller self-sustaining communities.

    it's truly the 99% becoming aware of the pitifully few people determining policy for the rest of us and coming together peaceably to do something about it. there's a full spectrum of ideology expressing itself in the general assemblies.

    It's easier to belittle and dehumanize OWS protesters than it is to actually address their concerns.

    edit: And it's especially easy when you assign negative motivations to them. "they just want handouts."

    you are seeing only what the lamestream media want you to see. attend a general assembly meeting and you'll not only see a completely different demographic than what is being broadcast, but you'll also meet people who can coherently espouse the issues.
