Based on what I've read on this board it seems people don't want us to protest anymore.

I know most of us have a gut feeling that this country is heading towards an oligarchy, but who knows maybe we're wrong and this country is recovering.

I guess we'll just have to carry on with our lives for now and just wait and see. :\

"Based on this boared?" Not a very scientific sample. OWS has at least very strong minority support, certainly considerably more support than does Congress.

A man shouting nonsense on a street corner has more support that Congress. Did you view the protester on the corner shouting and ranting about burning down Macy's today. He had quite a crowd around him - but then you have to consider that so does the fat bearded lady at the freak show at the carnival. If you are an avowed feminist - excuse me. It is just that fat bearded men are a time-a-dozen and no one will to pay to see them all over the place. Just that capitalistic thing you know.

Well, besides Congress, OWS also has considerably more support than a random person shouting on a street corner, or for that matter individual irrational and angry people who themselves happen to identify with OWS.

There is no focus. Occupy your state houses and demand that The United State of America, Inc. be dissolved in Chancery Court in the state of Delaware (that is where the U.S.A. was incorporated). You will no longer be ruled by a private company, but a republic. Bust them back down to being a republic. Then, dissolve the Pentagon/Armed Forces private company. All major agencies and divisions of the federal government are corporations. Your state goverments are Not incorporated -- they are republics.

You can protest all you want to- but have something worthwhile to protest will you. Protesting because your free food is not good enough, because you got yourself into debt with college loans, lost your house because you bought way over what you could afford is NOT my fault. You simply protest your own stupidity.

Every time I read a post with common sense in it, I shed a small tear. It's good to know that the entire world isn't as retarded as it seems.

Yes you are correct. good points made. I'm surprised they did not take this down.
