You failed at shutting down Wall Street and you successfully made more people angry at the movement.

Thoughts?

Yea, like who? Nothing we do will please you trolls.

Well, you could all march to the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge and jump off like the good little lemmings you are. I could DVR it and watch it over and over. Maybe use it as a screensaver. That would please us. And thanks for thinking of us.

The majority. Check out OWS approval ratings

Yep...people actually prefer the Tea Party over OWS as of this week.

News says 1000, OWS wants to say several thousand, let's call it 5000 just for giggles. That's 0.0006% of NYC population. A far cry from even 1%, much less 99%.

Exactly.

I wouldnt say it failed. What I saw today indicated that there are more people taking part in OWS than I thought. And I'm not even sure if I support OWS or not (hard to say one way or the other without a formally established platform).

actually, reports out of NYC say less turned out than expected by the NYPD. A thousand protesters and almost 200 arrested.

What reports? Cite source.

No, wasn't a waste of time.

[-] 1 points by RexDiamond (585) from Idabel, OK 2 years ago

yes it was. People don't need to see chaos from a bunch of kids to understand the World has problems.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (21771) 2 years ago

No, not really. It isn't just a bunch of kids. That is your first mistake.

[-] -1 points by RexDiamond (585) from Idabel, OK 2 years ago

The majority are in their 20s.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (21771) 2 years ago

Rex, they are not all college kids.

[-] 0 points by 53percenter (125) 2 years ago

You're right, there are also a bunch of burned out, old, smelly, 60s hippies.

[-] 1 points by GirlFriday (21771) 2 years ago

There are a lot of people from different walks of life. The problems have not been addressed through regular methods (voting/writing) and have gotten significantly worse.

[-] 0 points by RexDiamond (585) from Idabel, OK 2 years ago

Oh I agree. But the majority are college age.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (21771) 2 years ago

Then I guess that kind of makes this: People don't need to see chaos from a bunch of kids to understand the World has problems

an error if we consider that those other people that are not in their 20's already understand those problems.

think it will cause more people to begin to try to understand what is happening in this country and what the future holds and that they can encourage change . a positive result

[-] 2 points by binkster (6) 2 years ago

I think you're delusional.

[-] 0 points by steven2002 (363) 2 years ago

I think it caused more people to turn their nose up and walk away form your so called movement. I think you should all go down to DC and storm the White House. Show Obama what the 99% want.
