If i remember correctly they were chosen to represent the truckers in general as well. So, I'm confused, are the Occupy Protesters, dirty young ignorant hippies who just want other peoples money, or rich kids? it can't be both bob.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
The Daily Caller has examined the arrest records of hundreds of Occupy Wall Street demonstrators and found that they live in homes with a median value of $305,000 versus the national median of $185,000. The median rent for apartments listed by OWS arrestees was $1,850.
Assuming that most of the OWS protestors live in NYC (or even the outlying areas), of course the prices of their homes are going to be higher than the median. And sure the median rent is $1,850, but that could be the cost of an apartment they live in by themselves, or an apartment they share with 5 people. So I don't think you can make the conclusion that OWS protesters are rich from this article.
a house for $305,000 in NYC will buy you a crappy house...or a small co-op.
prices in NYC are very different than prices in the rest of the country. these kids who were arrested, live in rather typical homes in NYC.
and yes, total rent does not include it being divided by three or four roomates.
To the people that are sympathetic OWS:
Do you guys support the action to block the ports? Why or why not?
