    Re: Thoroughly sick of all things Occupy? OWS?

    I don't really understand complete what OWS is bitching about or what they think they will accomplish; except the general notion of being against the rich. I haven't heard anything positive about them. They certainly have a right to protest, but I think they failed to get sympathy from the right.....which is where they should have been looking for it. They tie the right to the rich (i.e., Wall Street), so they should have been trying to get the right on their side. I don't think they even tried, and thus failed.

    I haven't missed your point. If somebody said something patently ridiculous about OWS like they're all actually Russian spies seeking the downfall of the US, I would point out how silly I think that is. On the other hand, the only way you can say that I am hypocritically turning a blind eye to the TEA party where I criticize OWS is if the two movements behaved essentially the same way. They don't though, do they? The devil is in the details. I don't consider myself TEA party, but I am sympathetic to their message. Still, if the TEA party used the same tactics as OWS, I wouldn't support them either, no matter what they claimed to stand for. There's the consistency you're looking for.

    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?





    It's "jumped the shark"


    like "jumped the shark" has jumped the shark.



    Isn't some douchebags having a concert in zucotti park now?


    It's amazing how rude these folks are to the residents there..... Plus with them excluding others, it's rather hypocritical.

    Anti-OWS and the only coverage I want to see/hear of it from now on is of them getting hypothermia and dying of exposure in the Northeast, or of the police coming in and cleaning them out with tear gas, riot troops, and whatever other means are necessary to beat the living piss out of these worthless sacks of refuse.

    I think dying is a bit harsh, they are useless, but death seems a bit..... uhm, heavy handed.

    While I agree in general, it would just prove that these losers don't have enough common sense to get out of the cold and thus, they deserve what they got. Evolution in action.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    they'll be out. It's already 1/3 the size of it's largest contingent. The media doesn't like to portray numbers as it's not as big as people think.


    And the longer they stick around, thier true colors shine through.

    Rev, at some point these people are going to have to realize that the only two things that will ever change anything in this country are the two things I don't believe they're willing to do..... Die for their Cause and MORE IMPORTANTLY Kill for their Cause. Just like the Tea Partiers, these morons actually seem to believe that they're making a difference, when in fact all their doing is blowing hot air, wasting public funds, and taking up good newsprint space and air time that could be better spent for used car advertising. They are not making a difference and they never will.
