    I'm pretty sure what they are saying is the rights of the 99% will not be subjugated by the 1%.


    Did you really just compared sleeping in a park doing drugs and ****ting on the sidewalk to the civil rights movement?


    the "1%" are unnaffected, the "99%" that happen to live in that neigborhood suffer from noise, trash, crime, businesses not giant coporate chains suffer from lack of business because these dirt bag hypocrites only patronize starbucks and mcdonalds...


    how about the ambient noise level of over 98dba outside the elementary school across from the park?

    Maybe they should occupy an occupation and work for thier money like me and everyone else. The fact that some dude has a ton of money, does not affect me making slighly less money than him. What do you care?

    Do you really want to try to lock up 10,000 protesters in your city jail? That's the kind of thing that will render your local justice system inoperable.
    So... we need a public campground located right next to every city hall in every city?

    Sounds about right for a city street given that normal conversation is 50 to 70 dB. The great majority of protesters are not doing drugs and ****ting on the sidewalk, and yes I absolutely compare the cause of OWS with the civil rights movement and the Vietnam war protests, as have those within those movements.

    And, they are already having an effect.

    "As importantly, the movement has already changed the public debate in America.

    Consider, for example, last week’s Congressional Budget Office report on widening disparities of income in America. It was hardly news – it’s already well known that the top 1 percent now gets 20 percent of the nation’s income, up from 9 percent in the late 1970s.

    But it’s the first time such news made the front page of the nation’s major newspapers.

    Why? Because for the first time in more than half a century, a broad cross-section of the American public is talking about the concentration of income, wealth, and political power at the top.

    Score a big one for the Occupiers.

    The majority of the country and I care because we resent paying higher tax rates and having SS and Medicare benefits cut to provide tax breaks for the wealthy. We also resent the poor economy that having most of the wealth, income, and power concentrated at the top has resulted in.

    If that is the case than provide for us your documentation of the last time we had tens of thousands of people protesting across the country and a majority of the country in agreement that too much wealth, income, and power was concentrated at the top?

    You forgot that they denied access to public areas to the public for their own selfishness (Portland, St.Paul's), assaulted innocent bystanders and the police, and made a huge mess and disorder in society
