I dont know if any of you protesters care, but this is the end of my support for this movement. Though two weeks after the protests started and all that was done was more protesting, I supported OWS for its values. The movement has lost its values now. I was homeless at one time, it was my grand protest of the system. Every homeless person I know has spent more time than you iPad loving hypocrites protesting the system. It isnt something they just decided to do, its their lifestyle. Ive been arrested defending my right to sit in a park that my taxes (anyone who buys anything pays taxes) paid for. Wake up OWS your NOT above the homeless guy who wants a meal and then splits, cause he wears his protest on his back every day of his fraking life. Where ever he goes and whatever he does, he is a walking protest of this fraked up broken system. If you dont understand that, then your part of the problem, and no amount of protesting is going to fix it. You want change, how about you go back to school, get a degree in math or science, and do something useful for a change and stop being selfish. Im DONE!
