    Oh the Left's utopian spirit never seems to look back only a short 40-50 years, or before that. It doesn't work that well, for that long. That's why.

    I'm tired of hearing about it and don't want to debate it anymore. Everyone has their entrenched position and just spews venom at the other side. It's pointless.

    What say you? Tired of hearing about it yet?
    I'm tired of hearing about the latest criminal activity some hippy committed in one of the "camps".
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Re: Thoroughly sick of all things Occupy? OWS?

    P J O'Rourke had a good take on this:

    Yes, it's upsetting that some people have so much while other people have so little. It isn't fair. But I accept this unfairness. Indeed, I treasure it. That's because I have a 13-year-old daughter And that's all I hear, "That's not fair," she says. "That's not fair! That's not fair!" And one day I snapped, and I said, "Honey, you're cute, that's not fair. Your family is pretty well off, that's not fair. You were born in America, that's not fair. Darling, you had better get down on your knees and pray that things don't start getting fair for you."
    O'Rourke: If the 1% had less, would the 99% be better off? | Marketplace from American Public Media

    I'm really beginning to wonder if people aren't protesting just to protest. Today, I understand that they tried to shut down the NYSE. Exactly what would that do other than seriously throw a wrench into any economic growth? Unfortunately, most of the money that is made in this country these days is made by moving other money around. That's pretty much what got us here, but bankrupting everyone isn't going to fix that. I assume they have some kind of bank account -- do they know how the bank makes its money? It ain't off of fees.

    There are serious sins in the financial sector. I'm certainly not in favor of just turning the other way, or actually making them easier to commit. I just don't know what anyone's trying to accomplish anymore. OWS is not going to bring back economic growth by shutting things down. Demonizing them is also not solving anything. I'm about this close to saying "**** all of you, I'm moving to Nunavut."

    Society has lead us astray from the truth that we are all equal as humans beings, whether we are white, black, male or female.
    If we want to be treated as equals our current society is not a good place to be.

    Do you realize you haven't answered the damn question? Do you even have any clue what you're even talking about?

    You probably already know, hon, there's a certain category of folks who love to protest and shout slogans that sound high-and-mighty... like "level playing field" and "equality for all".... but if you ask them how to actually implement such a society they've got nothing, nada, zip.... it's all ivory tower opium smoke.

    many folks at OWS have already claimed that they do NOT need goals, an agenda, nor demands.

    those things are just used to "box people in".
