Hey - OWS people. I am in the 99% and I am getting pissed off with your disruption of these ports. I want my Christmas gifts here in time for my kids.

You are losing more support each day by these acts - because you are beginning to hurt the rest of the 99%.



Read the Rules

The "I Want" attitude has ruined this country. God forbid people make a stand for their rights (and yours) if it stops you from getting your Chinese manufactured bullshit on time for a holiday that used to be about family but is now about "BUY BUY BUY"

You are part of the reason we protest. We won't forget. We won't stop.

I'm surprised the longshoremen haven't got their pipes out and whoop some ass.

Longshore Union president doesn't appreciate the OWS attacking ports:

"Any action on behalf of longshoremen today should also be led by the workers themselves, the union's current president said.

'Support is one thing, organization from outside groups attempting to co-opt our struggle in order to advance a broader agenda is quite another,' Robert McEllrath wrote in a Dec. 6 letter to ILWU locals."

They're also damaging the reputation of Oakland. Sure, the loons show up for protest of the month, yet it's the people of the area that will deal with it longer term long after the moonbats have gone home. Shippers don't want the bullshit and have choices.

The Panama Canal is being expanded and soon the choke hold of unions and moonbats on West Coast ports will be loosened. Asian shippers will have access to the U.S. via ports in Miami, Houston and elsewhere.

Making Oakland's reputation even worse just darkens Oakland's future, the one the campers will never be around to notice.

It seems their is a propensity for OWS to shoot themselves in the foot. Wonder why?

I saw the stories on Google this morning. Some guy at the front with tie dye and a silly hat confronting police. I am still trying to see the purpose of all that. I am also thankful I do not live in CA.
