    About Us | OccupyWallSt.org
    OWS is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations.
    This is exactly what I thought the OWS movement was all about but, a lot of times other people with different agendas like to muddy the waters.

    Thats great but I am not a Teabagger, so it really means nothing to me, since I was talking about millions of Americans not some faction within them.

    But why dont you answer my question? DO I now own my neighbors would shed since I built it for her? She paid for all of the materials I only did the work. I didnt even charge her for my time. Yet those workers you talked about that built the factory were paid for their time. And those workers most likely would not be the same workers working inside the factory. So your rational is really weird. Should the workers that built the factory own the factory or should the workers in the factory own the factory? And what about the people that made the building materials? Are all of these people entitled to ownership yet the person who spent their money to purchase the materials and labor has no entitlement to their own investment? Why would any rational human being invest in society if society just takes it all away?

    And where does such practice end? Most of the things that I own were made by other people. DO they own these things instead of me? IMO philosophically Karl Marx was an hypocritical idiot. He only theorized intellectual drivel that cannot be applied to the real world.

    I am glad we found something we both could agree on! Its a shame the GOP is blocking this bill.

    Re: Is the OWS against Capitalism?

    OWS isnt against capitalism. They are against an unfair tax system that allows wealthy that allows wealthy to pay less taxes than them. They are against "too big to fail." Where were the main st bailouts? Wall st got bailed out. They want campaign finance reform, progressive tax system, reinstatement of glass-steagall act, etc. This isn't some anti capitalist movement. What we have in the US isnt capitalism. Its Socialism for the wealthy.

    LOL!!!

    Yeah right.

    They also want school loans forgiven. They want a tax on all financial transactions. They even want to cut off the heads of the rich.

    Dude, these useful idiots don't know WHAT they want.

    It is pretty selfish and greedy to want student loans to be forgiven.

    I thought they were protesting against greed?

    I don't know how you can say that. I can find 50 things they say they want...some of them contradictory, some of them asinine, some of them unrealistic as hell. And yet, YOU say they want to retain the middle class.

    Give me a break from the stupidity, eh?

    Just admit that every one of the hundreds of OWSers want what they individually want and the Occupy movement is a chance for them to vent. None of them are going to get what they want.

    But that's okay, dude. The useful idiots are just doing what those who control them want...except they aren't getting their heads busted.

    THAT'S why this whole spectacle will fail.

    They are.

    The problem is, that to them, wanting to be allowed to keep what is rightfully yours is “greed”, while wanting to take what rightfully belongs to someone else is not.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
