Rallying your cause around $5/month fees for this/that bank services and Wall Street greed is ridiculous. Hard for conservatives to support an attack on capitalism. Congress!! Get your heads out of your butts and do something!
    What a ridiculous oversimplification of the OWS movement by one of the forum's most prolific trolls. Nothing to see above people.

    No. They're denying people the right to erect sleeping tents, warming tents, eating tents and meeting tents. Go home at night and come back all ya' want. Or sleep on park benches, I guess. It's time, Harry. You know darned well it is.

    I'm pretty sure he's on your side and his comment is more to suggest that this supposed plan to "shut down wall street" is not peaceful protest.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I so completely resent being called a troll. S'matter? Make too much sense? If ya' ain't got nothin', ya' might wanna stop typing.

    good point. if OWS started occupying public-places with AR-15s and other rifles, Conservatives and other right-wingers would applaud OWS for their support of the 2nd Amendment.

    You're being called a troll because your post is an idiotic and senseless simplification of an international movement. You've reduced to being about, what was it? 5$ fees? Why don't you go run along to threads that don't involve ideological debates. All you're doing here is living up to the avatar you have: A hyperbole addicted character who adds little of substance and provides mediocre comic relief. Now move along, you're punching way above your weight here, troll.

    I heard about these plans only today and I'm curious who thinks planning to "shut down Wall Street" is a good idea? I don't. I think it'll only make their movement look bad. They're obviously looking to provoke a reaction. That's my opinion, what do you think? Do you support this idea?
    While I think many of our current policies regarding wall street are misguided and harmful, a sudden shutdown would not be in anyone's interest.

    So, no.

    I wouldn't be too concerned, Maggie. He thinks anyone who disagrees with him is a "troll".
