61% in the USA support Occupy. 61% down and 38% to go!

[-] -3 points by owsleader2038 (-10) 2 years ago

Define Occupy, show something to back up the survey?

Sure as hell it ain't OWS or this forum.

The question was probably "Do you support the public dis-content?" Well yes, given that US Congress has a 90% disapproval rating and OBama has 15% approval.

Easy to find that 60% of the people are pissed off, but don't for a second think that they think that "Occupy Wall Street", is the fucking solution.

"Occupy" is dead, its ran by assholes, and the whole worlds knows, so it has NO chance of accruing power.

It doesn't matter who runs the movement , the message will still be the same around the world .. We've had enough with the inequalities in wealth distribution.

[-] -1 points by owsleader2038 (-10) 2 years ago

Inequality is normal in the entire history of the species and in fact most species. Even strong dogs get more pussy than weak.

The USA has the most nukes, guns and thugs,... and thus the USA is un-equal in pillaging the world to feed its parasitic nation of 'citizen TV slobs'

[-] 2 points by FriendlyObserverB (1871) 2 years ago

the entire history of mankind there have been fighting for equality , and the fight continues today.

[-] -2 points by owsleader2038 (-10) 2 years ago

Most people are DUMB&UGLY, Stupid&POOR. Fact. ( The OWS 99% )

There has always been a limited supply of ... 1.) good looking women 2.) good food 3.) good booze 4.) gold

There have always been men fighting each other to monopolize the above, it is IMPOSSIBLE to 'fairly' distribute the good shit, and thus the majority of humanity never even see's the good shit.

Under capitalism the 'rich' enjoy the good shit without getting their hands dirty.

But the truth is is you can fight all you want and there never will be equality.

Oh sure like ORWELL you can make all animals equal, and feed them all shit, ... yea is that what you want?

But most 'warriors' are fighting so they can live the good life,

Eat well, raise the kids in safety, and sleep with a gorgeous young woman, ... this is the good shit, and its always been in limited supply,

Most people are DUMB&UGLY, Stupid&POOR. Fact.

The poll found that support for THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT was highest in the US, with 61% . . .

Read it and weep.

[-] 2 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

That is fantastic :)

[-] 3 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

If this can be verified by further reliable polls, it is more than fantastic - it is practically the ball game. I think we should be VERY encouraged by this, even though I'm sure American corporate pollsters will do everything in their power to counter this fact.

This gives us POWER.

[-] 1 points by therising (6643) 2 years ago

Totally agree. Huge.

[-] 1 points by slizzo (-96) 2 years ago

The only thing huge is the lie that press tv, the state run Iranian English-language propaganda mouthpiece, put out. they twisted "awareness" into "support" and hoped no one would notice. Or that some would be so desperate to accept it anyway, even after seeing the actual poll that was taken and what it said.

Don't let yourself be fooled by theocratic genocidal sponsors of suicide bombers, or those who are willfully ignorant and accept it after finding out the truth.

[-] 1 points by Okay1 (20) 2 years ago

Perhaps you shouldn't read too much into polls.

[-] 1 points by slizzo (-96) 2 years ago

It isn't fantastic. It's bullshit. Press tv is Iranian state-run media. They twisted "awareness" into "support" because they are liars. Don't be fooled by theocratic genocidal terrorists who sponsor suicide bombers.

[-] 1 points by TechJunkie (3029) from Miami Beach, FL 2 years ago

No. It did not. It said "awareness", not "support". You cited an article from Iranian state media that misrepresented the IPSOS poll.

"Awareness is highest in the United States (61%), home to the first Occupy protests in New York, followed by Canada (60%), India (59%), Turkey (51%) and Spain (46%). It is lowest in France (18%), Russia (21%), Brazil (21%), Belgium (24%) and Mexico (24%)."

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

Well, if we get any poll numbers ANYWHERE ELSE, we can see. I cited this, partly in order to spark the question. Can ANYBODY find any poll numders ANYWHERE on this movement since December? I can't.

There is as much to be learned from what you Don't hear as from what you Do hear.

[-] 1 points by slizzo (-96) 2 years ago

Since way way back in December? Say, that's, like, almost TWO whole months! Clearly the controlled media is hiding this useful information from us proles, so who can blame you for accepting iran's laughably distorted interpretation of an actual poll by a credible source?

And who can possibly argue with the rock solid logic that in the absence of anything credible in TWO whole months, accepting a blatantly false and misleading propaganda piece from a genocidal terrorist theocracy is just super!

Wow. Just...wow.

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

Oh, so now you're beating the hate Iran drum! Well, I've heard that before. First it was Korea and then Russia, and then Vietnam, and then Afganistan, and then Iraq, and now it's Iran. Let me tell you something, buddy. We've been backing genocidal regimes all over the world for 60 years. We like them as long as they support "our" interests. So don't pull the bleeding heart liberal thing on me, when we all know damn well who you're really backing - mr. got here ten mintues ago. Come back with some current numbers. I wish you luck.

[-] 1 points by slizzo (-96) 2 years ago

LMAO!! What a silly and ridiculous person you are. Can't even admit the genocidal theocratic jihadists who run Iran are horrible excuses for human beings.

DKAtoday admitted it and he seems to be just fine. Don't be afraid to be honest. it won't kill you.

Okay sleezo! Do you want to get to the truth, or is this just all a personal thing for you. Just for the record, I've been wrong about ten million times, and if I'm lucky I'll get to be wrong about ten million more times. The point here isn't being right, on a personal level, but in trying to find the truth. The truth here, as far as I can see, is that this movement is being consciously underplayed by the media and the pollsters. What truth are you trying to uncover - that I am not infallible? I can't even spell.

"Awareness != Support "

60% of US parasites are 'aware' of occupy because they sit in front of the TV more than anyone else on earth.

Yep people may start out angry for the wrong reasons some times, but then they start paying attention to why they are angry, and walla understanding and growing support.

61% hey?

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

That's what it says, and it is a European poll, and therefore in my opinion more to be trusted than the domestic pollsters.

Presstv.ir is not the most reliable news source.

They falsely reported a story about Libya that I had looked into and found no other source on the info. And a couple weeks later, still nothing. So based on that I would say it's not a reliable source. I would also think like the USA does to Iran, this Iran source is incredibly biased against the USA.

But yeah I would say that most people disagree with the government on a lot of issues. Different issues, but a lot of them.

Yes, much more despicable than our homegrown variety. Our media has flaws up the ass, but it isn't a mouthpiece for a theocratic, genocidal, terrorist regime, is it?

And no, I don't have to reserve my judgment when it comes to Iran. You need to practice some common sense before taking a single word these savages say seriously.

Iran. This is Iran's English language media. Do you know any Iranians? I do. I'll take their word for it, as much as I need to considering, that if press tv says today is Monday you should check a more reliable source.

Find some current data to contradict it. That shouldn't be so hard if this movement is falling apart, as the media is always saying it is. Funny thing, they don't seem back that assertion with data. So . . . that was the data that was actually out there, and I used it.

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

It was the ONLY poll that I could find about the popularity of this movement, so I put up a link. I think we are being manipulated by a lack of data. I have searched every polling site I can find, and I have not been able to find even basic data, much less a breakdown of data into useful demographics. So If they won't define things because the truth is not to their liking, I'm going to use their methods and define them with whatever data IS available

[-] 0 points by slizzo (-96) 2 years ago

I don't care what you asked me. You posted a story that is a blatant lie, the blatant lie was proven to you, and yet you STILL cant say if you knew what press tv was.

Honestly, could you be more childish?

And I didn't imply that 2 months old is current, I made a joke about your assertion that with no data in the last 2 months it's ok to use bullshit propaganda from the worst people on earth.

In the spirit of promoting awareness and proper functioning to government.

Some interesting Food for Thought considerations ….

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971...before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.

I'm asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

Term Limits.

12 years only, one of the possible options below..

A. Two Six-year Senate terms

B. Six Two-year House terms

C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.

Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/11. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves .

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

Contact your individual representative and senator …

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message. Maybe it is time .

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, pass it on. If not, just delete

I'm afraid it means that they realize if a movement like this is popular they don't dare admit it, because nothing is as popular as being popularity. It is just more evidence of the degree to which we are being manipulated.

That';s one take. Mine? The 'people' don't appreciate your tactics BUT ows has got a LOT of people thinking. And taking action in their own ways.

What a blow to the put-down belittling crew.

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

Yeah, everybodies complaining about the source of this data; which I admit isn't good; but the point is it is the ONLY data I have been able to find for two months about the popularity of this movement. So if they will just ignore us, I'll just use whatever data IS out there until they stop pretending we don't exist. And then I will still look for objective data, from outside the US. There are a million ways to dellude people, and one tried and true method is to simply keep unpleasant facts out of people's hands.

It would be truly sad if we had the truth 1st from Iran. That other poll :

Okay, then go with the actual poll, and not the misrepresentation of the poll that was published by Iranian state media.

Looked like it had some favorable stats.

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

Yeah,and otherwise we are encountering here what I would have to call a general blackout of information. If the Iranians are the only ones asking the question then I guess they are the ones to define the picture. Sad, that they go to these legnths to disempower Americans - to the point you have to go to Iran to get onfo on your own country.

[+] -4 points by DKAtoday (22310) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

That is what bothers me the most. We can not get coverage or analysis from here at home. It would be exceptionally sad if we had to hear the truth 1st from Iran.

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

Yes, I really had a hard time believing this polling was so hard to find. I mean come on, this is the largest grass roots political movement in decades, and look how little is out there. All I can say is Damn!

I know its insane.

Be sure to thank epa1nter.

I just forwarded his find.

[-] 1 points by GypsyKing (8719) 2 years ago

Thanks, I will do that. I'm glad all this at least produced these poll numbers. I find them very encouraging. Damn crazy it was so hard to do, but maybe that's just my fault.

Some times we can look to hard and miss what we are looking for. It's good to have others looking and sharing too.

Damn right it is!

And on that note.

Good night. Get some rest and recharge.

By "blind marchers" you mean people who allowed themselves to be duped by Iranian propaganda, right?

[+] -4 points by DKAtoday (22310) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

No the status-quo supporters, who else?

Iranian propaganda????????????

Please!

[-] 1 points by slizzo (-96) 2 years ago

I see you also have no idea what press tv is.

Typical ows...hopelessly ignorant. Read from the top, check out tech junkie's posts, and admit you were clowned by theocratic genocidal terrorists.

[+] -4 points by DKAtoday (22310) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

OK OK gloat. I just myself verified the feed. OK I was an idiot in my last statement. My Bad.

But would it not be truly sad if that was a true poll accounting, and we had to here it from Iran 1st. How sad would that be. We can't even get coverage analysis from our own country.

[-] 1 points by slizzo (-96) 2 years ago

"my bad"

Good for you! And look, not a scratch on you. Wasn't so bad, was it?

Yes, it would be sad. Thankfully, it isn't the case.

Btw, I'm not gloating. I'm not even sure how it could be seen as gloating. I simply hate to see anyone duped by theocratic, genocidal, terrorist scumbags who are patrons to suicide bombers and have promised to wipe a people off the face of the earth. If that gloating, then I'm guilty. But it isn't, so I'm not

So you will be happy to see this then:

From the latest poll by Pew:

"By a 44% to 35% margin, more Americans support than oppose the Occupy Wall Street movement overall, and by 48% to 30%, more say they agree than disagree with the concerns the protests have raised."

I have no problem with that at all. Why would I?

[+] -4 points by DKAtoday (22310) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Didn't say you would. It is just some favorable stats finally found being presented by an American Think Tank. But still someone had to do some digging to find it and present it here. That is not such a good thing. It should be being dealt with on MSM to the public but it is not.

[-] 2 points by slizzo (-96) 2 years ago

There's plenty of things I think are newsworthy that isn't in the news. I just don't get all paranoid about it. Certainly not to the point of defending the Iranian regime like gypking does.

What kind of person defends those animals?

[+] -5 points by DKAtoday (22310) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

GK is not defending them. He is defending an honest mistake. We have all been looking for some glimmer of coverage.

[-] 2 points by slizzo (-96) 2 years ago

What are you reading? He is defending them and he won't even admit he made a mistake.
