It is fucking funny. My friend who was on Millionaire Matchmaker wants to host a champagne dinner for 5 lucky protesters.

I love the fucking protesters. Funny as shit. Almost as funny as drunk Perry...

hmm. now i feel more alone than ever.

oh well. i'm addicted tho. cant stop watching, waiting... i think it might be the beginning of a very beautiful time when people start to question materialism as a main goal of life. but thats not the message of this movement. the message seems to be, "I want to be a part of the american dream again."

not "the american dream was a lie all along"

You are not alone. I've seen every soap box under the sun. I actually tried to tell each one that this is for the OWS cause. I get caught up though.

Me too. Don't lose sight of the big picture. They are like a train wreck. Have to look and have to vomit back at them. Just trying to do it with less hatred and more compassion for the ill.

I find it enjoyable to poke fun at these bandwagon revolutionaries. I've been fighting the status quo since 2003 when I found out we were lied to about 911 but these kids are not fully awake so its comical, yet sad to hear their world view at times

I find it very hard to believe that occupy isn't here for my personal amusement.

Who's to say what it it or is not? After all, it is a "leaderless movement", right?
