    There is only one problem...

    OWS has expressed no concrete ideas.

    With the lack of a coherent message from the protesters, all the media has left is the stupid stuff.


    And OWS is supplying the media with LOTS of stupid stuff.

    There are plenty of articles on members and groups in OWS where they discuss ideas. If you chose to ignore them, that's your problem.

    Actually, tabloids are supplying the public with stupid stuff.

    I have no idea how you can make that connection. The OWS protesters aren't asking to be paid for doing nothing.
    A lot of them are for taxing the **** out of the rich so the rich can pay for the **** the OWS protesters(notice I did not sound like some retarded lib by referring to them with a derogatory name) want.


    They're asking for the means to work and earn a living to no longer be taken from them for the benefit of the wealthiest in the country.
    Many of them are earning a living.Some of them seem to be earning a pretty decent living seeing how one of them can throw away five grand on lap top.

    Those making the big bucks in business do so by laying people off to shoot up stock prices,

    Do you have any actual evidence of this form a unbiased source?

    not by actually putting in the work to make a better product that sells better and makes more profit.
    For some reason I think you people want to tax the **** out of manufactures too.
    The literal cost of that wealth for business leaders is other people's livelihoods. That's what's being protested. No one is asking for a handout. OWS is just asking for the gross abuses to end.
    You keep telling yourself that and eventually you will believe it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Oh, it's all fine and good that individuals and groups are expressing themselves, but that doesn't equate to a centralized message that all OWSers follow. It just means they are all over the map. They are unfocused and there is nothing concrete for the media to report on.

    It doesn't start with the "tabloids". It starts with the useful idiots, themselves. That's where the stupid stuff comes from.

    First, I never said they had a centralized message. Second, the media has already reported the messages of OWS. Some people chose to focus on those reports, others choose to focus on tabloids. The latter group prefers personal attacks to ideas. It's cool. That's just the way it is.

    It actually starts with the tabloids.
