    The underlying beliefs that OWS is supposed to stand for (at least as I understand them) is something we as Americans should be pursuing. The OWS ranks are full of idiots who can't even practice what they attempt to preach and that is ruining what could be a very beneficial cause. I personally hope OWS reorganizes and makes a legit attempt to make a difference, not just create headaches.

    It's a Leftist movement. There's no way they could have, "executed rationally".

    I disagree with all of you. Something must be done to alter the 1%/99% makeup of this Nation. The bankers and large Korporate USA nearly bankrupted the USA. They got big raises for doing that. OWS is just trying to keep the memory of that in the Media (the Mighty Wurlitzer). Pretty hard to do when the Media is bought and paid for with 1% money. May Day is a holiday celebrating the struggle to attain a 40 hour work week. That is a struggle that caused great brutality and deaths here in the USA, but most people do not realize that. It is a labor holiday, not a socialist holiday. The repression of the holiday in the USA indicates the power of big business to control National events with National Media. Do your homework on May Day. If you are against May Day, you are against the working man. I don't see anybody else trying to help the working man. I see Republicans trying to get tax breaks for the 1% and lying with the statement that it will create jobs. I see the Democrats were in support of bailing ouot the Big Banking leeches. Who's working for the little guy? That would be OWS, even if they are doing it poorly.

    They arent working for the little guy either. OWS in almost every area they occupied hurt small business and helped support big business. They were a bunch of self righteous hypocrites. I went to an OWS rally. All I saw were Wal-Mart bags full of merchandise from big businesses. I saw countless people with bags from McDonalds and the line at the McDees across the street was long as hell. There were Nike swooshes as far as my eyes could see. These people can say what they want but until they start acting and stop giving their money to these big businesses and actually start supporting the little guys that you think they are fighting for then they arent doing anything other than contributing to what they are supposed to be against.

    There is no way this could be construed as constructive to any conversation.

    If there is one city I would not want to get people angry it is New York. I suspect the drivers will plow through anyway.

    We will see.

    And tell me, what is shutting down bridges, costing the cities millions in cleanup and repair costs, and blocking the little guy from doing their jobs going to do to help the little guy?

    OWS needed to be called Occupy the Capital, because the real issue is the government feeding the corporations our money. THAT is what we should all be outraged about.
