    It is not just the government feeding them money. It is consumers. We make decision on who we give our money to. We choose not to give it to the small businesses then we bitch and moan when they can't stay in business. You and I make our choices and we have to live with our consequences. When you and 250 million other are all giving the majority of your/our money to only a few businesses the wealth disparity is going nowhere.

    This is what I thought as well. Wall street IS a problem, but not even close to being the problem congress has been and currently is.

    I have a prediction. This will not end well. Especially if OWS executes it well and manages to disrupt people trying to go about their every day lives.

    No more or less cool than these wastes of flesh and oxygen going out of their way to make my life more complicated by forcing me to find another route to work would be. I'm sorry, but if you're blocking my way on a PUBLIC street (without a walk light to give you that right of way), I should have the right to run your ass over.

    Then again Occupy Worcester has never actually had enough people to block a street so that's probably not on their agenda.

    Well, the immeidate answer is, you wouldn't have the right. Most metropolitian cities have a pedestrian has the right of way in almost all instances including this one.

    But feel free to try. If it's something you want to go to prison for, knock yourself out.

    Not here. Not in America. They are essentially a communist movement. America is founded on "equal opportunity". Equal outcome is for the commie losers. Things are fouled in the US precisely because liberal government has interfered too much with equal opportunity.

    That such as OWS so quickly turned to violence and mayhem indicates the inherent disposition for such notions to fail.

    Won't work.

    Wall street bankers take the train or will just spend the night in Manhattan and order call girls and room service.


    And w/o reading your full post, I bet you'll bring up Obama somehow...

    Am I right?

    OWS has nothing to do with Communism. Also, you are incorrect that America was founded on equal opportunity. If that was so, why were there slaves?

    May 1st Blockade Called For New York Bridges, Tunnels, and Ferries
    On May 1, 2012, autonomous direct action groups within Occupy Wall Street, as a part of the global mobilizations for general strike and economic non-compliance, will block one or more Manhattan-bound bridges or tunnels to protest the shameful opulence of the 1%. Working and unemployed people across this country have seen no improvement to their lives in spite of all of the chatter about a recovery from the Financial Crisis of 2008. We don’t care what Obama or Romney say because only working people —domestic laborers, rank and file union members, undocumented workers, restaurant, retail and chain-store workers— can solve today’s problems
    I've been to NYC a few times now....I think we should scuttle it.
