    In order for you to have such knowledge about these people, you would need to have information about their personal lives. Can you provide us with personal profiles of every OWS protester in order to substantiate your claims?

    Confused people who keep looking back to what was supposedly the "high water mark" of left-wing movements: the Hippie-Yippie core. You always hear about the Civil Rights Movement with these people, but really, the impulse is not so much with that as with the New Left fellow-travelers of the Civil Rights Movement.

    I think you are right but in addition they are angry at what that business influence has take from everyone other than the rich..

    NO matter how the right wingers on here want to spin it...no matter how much they whine....the simple truth is the rich have gotten richer in leaps and bounds and they have gotten richer at the expense of everyone else...
