    The internet.

    In respect to this news story...I watch videos of the people involved. I listen to their own words. I research who is behind the newspaper, the organizations, the money. These are things supporters of this movement on this site are willfully ignoring as if they don't matter. The people who are organizing, providing "news" and opinion for the entire movement have no influence? Really?

    Wrong. You apparently have done no research behind it.

    Roger that. Foxnews doesn't need to tell me what to think of a LAUSD teacher on video whose every other word is "Jew this" and "Jew that."

    I've actually been down there several times, unlike you.

    Or is this one of those things were you like think it is catchy like a disease or something? Or brainwashing something?
    Useful idiots are easily swayed. It doesn't matter who is organizing and leading this? You can't honestly think that.

    Hey, that site says:

    Is your overall opinion of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations favorable or unfavorable?

    Favorable
    45%

    Favorable
    49%

    Not sure
    6%

    So 45% favorable + 49% favorable... That's 94% favorable!

    Regardless of whether it is 54% or 45% or 49%, those numbers are still all higher than any other major political entity. The tea party, for example, is currently at 27%. Obama is at 43%. Romney is at 36%. Congress is at 12%...
