    I don't really care. It lacks substance and has the mentality of a retarded mob. Ill take them seriously when they stop the whole "Destroy Capitalism" thing.

    and all this time the right was telling us it was a disorganized mob with no unified message and voila, here you are telling us what their unified message is.

    From everything I've been reading it seems more like they are protesting greed and corruption, not capitalism. Big difference.
    "There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams

    The GOP does not need to fear the occupy wall street movement. They lack unity, their demands are unrealistic, and they're message isn't focused enough. The conservatives should however fear the impetus behind this movement. The people are fed up. Never has the wealth gap in this country been larger and it continues to grow every year. It's simply not right that the bottom 80 percent possess 7 percent of the nations wealth. The nation's waking up and this will not be allowed to continue.

    Actually no... there are actually sister protest at my college and they are full of signs stay "Capitalism Is the Problem" and such. And don't worry there are definitely many of those too in the regular protest as well.

    Oh Please,
    As Jucon's post proves the point, there are many random thoughts and messages... he even projected his own thoughts on what he thinks its about... which is what i think most people are doing.

    Your right and its not about begrudging the rich becoming richer...its about the TEAPARTY blaming everything thats wrong with the country on everything and everyone but the rich and corporations and the PEOPLE dont believe that crap
    The only thing the GOP has to fear from this movement...is that it makes other people aware that theres millions of others that feel the way they do and its ok to tell the teaparty to "F" off with blaming the middleclass and poor for the problem the country is in

    You have it all wrong
    The Tea Party does't blame the middle class and poor for the problem the country is in, but it blames the government and its structure from going away from the Free market-like/personal responsibility structure.

    WTF are you talking about?

    Yeah.... the wall street occupation is supporting the destruction of capitalism. Some of them are proposing a living wage of 10 dollars an hour. Why golly, that's still less than the minimum wage would be if conservative administrations hadn't kept it below the rate of inflation. The entire capitalistic system we've built over the past few hundred years will collapse because we've given workers some rights in an incredibly lopsided labor market. They're so stupid..... The Tea Party on the other hand, they always seem so wonderfully articulate, as do you for that matter. ".. when they stop the whole "Destroy Capitalism" thing." wonderful commentary, it has such intellectual depth and is so well supported by the reality of the situation. You certainly deserve to comment on the legitimacy of their demonstration and how intelligent the demonstrators are.
