    So far you hanvn't shown that at all.
    Well that certainly begs the question. So right now they are protesting but later on they wont be? If that is the case then at some point they will become violent its just a matter of time?

    The think though is that literally millions of citizens in the US are living their lives the way they should and are not whining about the challenges to do so. Of course these same people are interested and involved in the country as it should be. No things are not perfect but things are not all that bad either. At least not bad enough to change political systems.

    Where are the protests headed and what is the intent? Here is one view of that direction:

    No that discussion was about how ironic it is that you rant against the society that you are dependent upon.

    The movement is not dead, but yes it did fade once the media turned the cards and played them off as a violent terrorist organization...

    I already provided that top you.
    No you have not.

    A chant is your proof?
    They were not sitting on a bridge. They were moving! Marching!

    Cool beans maybe they did shut down Wall Street for a couple of hours. I take back my statement. Cudos to them. Didnt cause "financial chaos" tho... And defiantly not "economic terrorism"... The "economic terrorists" would be the guys you know in Wall Street who crashed the whole ****ing system and took taxpayer money for bonuses.

    12:14 pm: global solidarity actions: Occupy LA blocking bridge into financial district; Occupy Portland closes Steel Bridge; 30,000 march in Greece; more updates to come.
    Occupy LA case. Not a OWS case. And not about the case at hand.
    [QUOTE]

    Occupy the bride is not in NYC.. Not a part of this case.

    Ehh what?
    A calling for people who agree with these tactics to come join the movement? Whats your point?

    It was completely on topic. What exactly is it that you are not debating? Did you even read my response it was not about Oakland just the first short paragraph mentioned Oakland? Did you not even read this far? But you are correct this is not just about Oakland it is about the entire occupy movement.

    This is about the case at hand.........

    Not at all.

    The moment they impede the way of decent, law-abiding folks getting around and living their lives I say we should simply be allowed to do whatever is necessary to get them out of the way. Whether that's running them down, gunning them down, or whatever else is necessary.
    Yea. If im at the national mall and there is any protest going on or a giant rally and people are not letting me get the fastest way from point a to point b should that be illegal? I mean they are blocking my path!

    Wow... those points of unit are points of their insanity.

    What a bunch of fruitcakes.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    You can try to convince me that protesters, especially OWS, want peace with those they protest against, but it would need to be a pretty compelling argument considering what we have seen on TV, and the rhetoric from the left.

    I dont see what the big deal is since over and over these protesters have expressed that they are willing to get arrested for their cause. OWS got what they were looking for on the Brooklyn bridge which was an sensational moment to exploit and to use as a spring board. So there really isnt any foul since the protesters were looking to get arrested. Which is the entire point of OWS is to create situational photo ops to use in radical Leftist propaganda. Thats why radical Leftists are not really worried about how the protest is going right now. Because they have future plans that will take everything from the protest out of context and twist it with propaganda. You can try that line of accusing me of being an conspiracy nut all you want but it wont change anything, I will still be here so give up that attack already it wont work.

    But it was funny to watch you try to deny the main premise of OWS the goal of shutting down Wall Street. Did you really think that I would let such an propagandist attempt slide? Seriously everyone knows that OWS was intending on shutting down Wall Street in order to start a Revolution. The idea was to cripple the people with the power (ie money) that control the government. Come on now dont try to deny it again I could link hundreds of occupies saying that was the goal. Its the type of dishonesty that you just exhibited that has destroyed any chance of OWS having any real success.

    Many of those protesters arrested have already had their charges dropped prior to the judges ruling to allow a class action lawsuit. But then despite all that Wall Street money our judicial system still works so if the class action lawsuit is won it will only make OWS a mute point. Meanwhile corruption still exists and all that ows has achieved is more polarization of America. Which is a good thing for people who would like to see America destabilized. You do realize that as time goes by propaganda is easily identified right?

    Most of the protests I have read about have been non-violent. What little violence has occurred seems to have come from small splinter groups of anarchists,or the police.
