    I'm still curious as to what the end goal of the movement is.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Hypocrisy is a two way street. I've seen the same people who claimed they feared violence from the TEA party give a complete pass and even support the OWS even where there has actually been violence.

    I will say, I'm tired of the coverage but I have had some fun digging at the "Fleabaggers" the same way others enjoyed digging at "teabaggers".

    But you see, that is just lowering the level of discourse just to do it. When people where accusing the Tea party of stupid things and calling them names, I defended the Tea Party. Those who where backing me and thanking my posts then are now the ones attacking OWS for the same crap. When you use the "well Johnny did it so I should to" excuse, instead of arguing what is right no matter what, you are part of the reason political discussion in this country is so vile at times.

    Re: Thoroughly sick of all things Occupy? OWS?

    I'm neither anti nor pro OWS, just as I was neither anti nor pro Tea Party. I am sick of both, however. The Tea Party isn't on the news 24/7 shoving signs at my screen any more, so out of sight, out of mind... thankfully. Everyone has the right to protest and make their voices heard. However, that doesn't give people the right to shut down large hunks of cities across the nation for weeks and weeks on end. It's like Woodstock sneezed, sending infected droplets of itself across the nation, then turned off the music and went home.

    Enough, already.

    Looks like the disenchanted 99% want to make sure that any part of that 99% that has a job, loses it. What a gaggle of gigantic asses.

    I support them at heart, but I disagree with most of their message. Even though this is not an official demand list, many of their demands are outright absurd. In addition, the movement is not cohesive and they are not making any headway influencing Washington. It is more of a motley crew bitching and moaning, than a valid movement.

    I agree that we have a problem with rampant cronyism and incestuous behavior between Wall St and Washington. I believe that there is too much white collar crime happening on Wall St. and it needs to stop. I believe that some of these big financial firms need to be broken up, investigated, and possibly throwing people in jail for crashing the global economy due to myopic greed.

    It seems like the original movement had some positive elements but has been somewhat hijacked by clowns, not unlike the Tea Party.
