they are angry of living a life with no promotion

they are angry that their child's quality of life may be worse than theirs

they are angry because their savings have been looted

they are angry because they have no power at their employment

they are angry that bombs are still considered reasonable force

We the actual 99% are growing tired of your movement. You’re destroying private and public parks, blocking small businesses and breaking laws. Not all of you, but enough that we are growing weary. Tread lightly and behave professionally or we, the actual people, will turn on you. Remember 90% of Americans still have jobs and the system is working is some way for us. We are frustrated, but radical calls for dismantling this country made by accepted members of your movement don’t sit well with most Americans. So think smartly about supporting and accepting communist, anarchists and extreme radicals. Remember, who you keep company with speaks volumes about you. Keep your message simple and without extremes, messages full of hate and violence will end up being met with the same. Messages demonizing all corporations while wearing Colombia jackets and posting from iPod’s makes you appear childish and ignorant. The average American has little patience for violence or inconvenience and popular sentiment can and will turn on you if you are not careful. Despite your idealistic dreams you are only able to continue to occupy as long as the real 99% allow you to. This is meant as friendly advice, take it or leave it. 99% of Americans will turn their back on you, to your peril if you ignore us. If you consider anger at the movement a success you have nowhere to go but down.
