    The only thing 99% with these folks is that they are 99% freeloaders, wanting someone else to make it easy for them. Libs.

    Best they make something of themselves ofter than trying to be professional whiners. Free-stuff is over.

    So far I'd say the protest is a mixed bag. We'll see if they ever get a coherant message that reasonates but you don't see any interest groups here? (taken from their website)

    Well, I can't read enough of it to be able to draw any conclusions.

    But, if this has been pulled from somewhere ANYBODY can upload one of these images, one needs to be really careful about attributing authenticity.

    Its EXACTLY the kind of thing a public relations "crisis response" would generate to discredit a threatening movement.

    The same kind of thing I suspect has occurred at Tea Party events. Could be a cherry picked handful of the kind of knuckleheads one finds at demonstrations on ALL sides. And it could be deliberate plants, in the employ of the movements oponents.

    Everybody needs to be on the lookout for deception that can be easily accomplished with money.

    SuperPACS gonna spend that money somewhere.

    Right, how unAmerican to expect the removal of corporate finance from politics, and that money be spent on meeting people's needs instead of corporate bailouts, how positively unAmerican. Shocking I tell you, shocking!

    "My issue is corporate influence in politics," he said. "I would like to eliminate corporate financing from*politics."

    "One supporter, William Stack, sent an email to city officials urging that all charges be dropped against those*arrested.
    "It is not a crime to demand that our money be spent on meeting people's needs, not for massive corporate bailouts," he wrote. "The real criminals are in the boardrooms and executive offices on Wall Street, not the people marching for jobs, health care, and a moratorium on*foreclosures."

    "Jackie Fellner, a marketing manager from Westchester County, north of the city, said she has an issue with "big money dictating which politicians get elected and what programs get*funded."

    "they speak against corporate greed, social inequality, global climate change and other concerns."

    "The growing, national movement “signals a shift in consciousness,” said Jared Schy, a young man sitting squeezed between three others who participated in Saturday’s march from Manhattan’s Financial District to the bridge"

    "On Sunday, a group of New York public school teachers sat in the plaza, including Denise Martinez of Brooklyn. Most students at her school live at or below the poverty level, and her classes are jammed with up to about 50 students.
    “These are America’s future workers, and what’s trickling down to them are the problems — the unemployment, the crime,” she said. She blamed Wall Street for causing the country’s financial problems and said it needed to do more to solve them."

    If all this is true it just proves they are idiots to boot. Wall street doesn't make the rules. They should be marching on DC if they want money spent on people not on bailouts. WTF is the point? Do they think the big wall street companies will just say "eh your right, were not going to use our influence anymore in dc". Just a group of idiot hating on the wrong people.

    Death by a million cuts, and it resembles torture in Iraq as the liberal hosts can outline GOP plans to torture us mentally and physically w/ their machinations, via MSNBC and radio

    If the entire broadcast media was exposed to be Mockingbird it would be no surprise to me!

    me thinks this is just starting ....the teaparty has made bitter enemies with their rhetoric against the working class....you can "FEEL" the depth of the passion when you talk to any working class...
    I belong to 2 retired police officer groups...its not a union one calls itself a union but theres no negotiating or anything...trust cops have turned on the GOP...and they were always tradtiional allies of the GOP...
    Another group I can speak for.. veterans are as enamored with the GOP as they once were either.

    the whack job protestors are violating the laws, the banks and wall street have not been indicted for anything

    If you want to judge people guilty without going through Proper channels, let us treat those protestors the same way. I don't think you would like what would happen

    You rounded down to 99%. These useful idiots are standing up and claiming "I am a leech on society, feed me".
