Now move along, you're punching way above your weight here, troll.
    Wow, you must be hot for me, Hatuey. I feel a tug on my pigtails.

    That someone disagreeing with him is a troll or that Maggie is? In either case, it's bull****.

    LOL, and you accuse Maggie of being a troll. Project much?

    You start a thread about a movement you have tried to make "look bad" no matter what they do and you accuse others of trolling? Lawls. Look sparky, it doesn't really matter what OWS does. At the end of the day, you don't like them. So whether they carry our legal or illegal action, you'll find a reason to bitch and moan about how "bad" they look to people who disagree with OWS for ideological reasons. It's not my fault you attract anti-OWS psychophants like MaggieD who don't have a first clue as to what it is about but feel the need to insert themselves into any discussion about it and then cry because they're being called trolls.

    What is OWS about again Maggie? 5$ fees?

    Best thing to do with Hatuey is to ignore him. He'll go away...

    You have me curious now digsbe, if you think the OWS protesters are acting childish for planning to block a street, what must you have thought of the protesters that took part in the Boston Tea Party?

    No, I don't support OWS. Protests against Wall Street and the government deregulations that have led to near economic collapse, yes. But two months of camping in public parks, attacking film crews, vandalism, blocking public buildings and private businesses, blocking intersections and roadways, this affects real people, people who are part of this 99% are being hurt. They've got a jillion different messages... protesting Wall Street, protesting university tuitions, protesting the damned establishment, protesting capitalism, who the hell knows what this mixed-up bunch of modern day hippies are even saying?

    As I said somewhere else, it's like Woodstock sneezed and a thousand droplets of snot infected the entire nation. I'm as mad as the next guy over what government being in bed with big business for the past decades has wrought, but I'm not willing to turn to tromping on the rights of others, breaking laws and advocating anarchy as a solution.
