    .....oh, and how about "no pay".
    Doesn't it seem odd that it would coincide with a time where university students across the country are close to their final exam/project week? What a fabulous time to not do anything.

    The school year ends with the coming of summer.
    Nice weather begins with the coming of summer.
    People tend to be more tolerant of being outside with the coming of nice weather.
    No, it doesn't seem odd.
    You're making an awful big jump to a conclusion, Fiddy.

    of course, you won't feel the same way about the 99% who receives this money from the government for simply existing ( not trading labor or value for it).. nah, that's a totally ethical and correct way to build wealth.

    i'm a 1%er myself... and to be quite honest...I agree with some of the concerns of the OWS movement ... but as I have been deemed the enemy by you OWS folks, you get absolutely no support or kind words from me.
    I'll continue to give liberally to deserving charities and people... but those won't include anti-capitalist leftist protesters of the OWS sort, they can starve in the park for all i care.

    Because one group of people is just like any other group of people, right?

    Since one of their main objectives is to get the youth in the streets protesting student loans and such, that's not surprising at all.
