    Thoroughly sick of all things Occupy? OWS?

    Are you thoroughly sick of all things to do with Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Whatever? Pro and anti? Tired of hearing about it, tired of arguing about it, tired of the overhyped mega-partisanship?

    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?

    OWS-sympathizer

    sick of talking about it

    sick of all the coverage of the people participating and their actions rather than the message about what is wrong with our political system. Same thing that happened with all the nigger signs at Tea Party rallies, when there is a legitimate concern about our debt.

    That's why I haven't really posted about anything besides sports the past couple of days. All the new threads are all about OWS and boring as ****.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I keep my mind occupied (oops) with other matters when I desire (right now reading about conservative intellectualism in American newspapers). I'm fine with defending the notion of proper political discourse in the face of the mob, and do so when I please. I have differences with their outlook and desires, but I am still outraged at their infantile actions.

    Anti. Sick of talking about it, neither pro nor anti are in a position to listen to each other so it's becoming just pissing and moaning in general.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I don't agree with their message. I support their right to protest peacefully and within the law.

    But I admit... I get very involved in debates when others feel they have the right to violate the law, resist/attack authorities, and bitch and moan and lie about it.

    My only pony in the show is pointing out the misinformation and anti-law enforcement crap.


    Personally, if they would just stop camping and start holding daily protests from 6am to 10pm they would be viewed alot more favorably... these encampments create more PR problems than their movement needs.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I am sick and tired of the OWS, the Tea Party, The Fred Phelps Inbreds, The Pro-Lifers, The Pro-Choicers, The Loud Mouths at either parties's conventions and anybody with more than one political sign on their yard. Just STFU and do something productive and go pick up some trash along our streets from your lazy arse fellow Americans.

    Just my opinion.

    Same here.

    But I admit... I get very involved in debates when others feel they have the right to violate the law, resist/attack authorities, and bitch and moan and lie about it.
    The only investment I have in that is trying to convince people to at least acknowledge that the lawbreaking is getting out of hand, unfortunately there are too many true believers.

    Yep.

    In total agreement. The usual suspects though keep trying to make it about assembly but ignore the misbehavior, this is why most people are sick of the subject.

    Are your eyes glued to the TV, internet, newspaper forcing you to view things you find objectionable? Are ear phones glued to your ears forcing you to listen to things you don't want to hear? You still have freedom of choice use it
