It sounds like NY is finally getting serious about this. It's sad that the Tea party had to get proper permits, followed the rules, have left every venue cleaner then they found it; however the flea party doesn't have to. If conservatives had rallied without permits it would have made headlines. If we had camped in parks that do not allow camping, it would have been major news. The revolutionaries at the White House organized these protests ignoring all rules, destroying public property, defending rapists, etc and the media does not report the truth. This is a distraction to unfairly push blame for the poor economy away from the president and on to Wall Street to help his reelection and attempt to destroy our nation.
Not really. If you only understood the corruption this movement has recognized and is fighting. This is not only a domestic movement, it is a global revolution. Take em all out of office! the democrats and the republicans, radical changes and reformation!
The "occupy" movement has been organized by Obama's communist friends like Bill Ahers and Van Jones to "overwhelm the system" in a way to overthrow the capitalist system.
The protesters are just usefull idiots to the movement.
They are all over the world. When I was in Rome just recently, they had a big one there. It was on the other side of town from where I was, but, this is not just in the USA. People are upset with the way the banks and Wall street are using their size to do criminal things (such as bundling dirivitives and passing them as A rated, for example). They are not against the wealth as some people think, it is against ripping off the people who trust in them. These bank failures could bring us all down the tubes with them making risky loans and more.
The occupy movement is brought up by people speaking their mind in practicing the first amendment. Last time I checked this was a free country and everybody still has the right to voice their opinions. "Hippies" come in all shapes and sizes...take me for instance I work for the port of Houston, but I still sympathize with the frustrations of the 99% and for those of you criticizing people on the way they look... For shame! Grow up!
