I usually spend time with my kids, do the family thing, but then there are afternoons I have to myself. Not much of a bar fly and at my age most of my friends are as busy as I am. If I was still young and had time, I would have been in NY over the last year because this protest speaks to me and my beliefs. So, instead I come on this forum. In one window, I work on software to get me into a better career, and in the other, when I need a break, I have this forum open to connect to like minded people.
Most of those have gone and in their place is two trolls, one is the alternate personality for a supposed Occupy supporter, and the other rationalizes wasting time harassing people. Also in the place of common people are the campaigners, which is in direct contradiction to the point of the movement. I cannot be in NY and I hate that these people have trashed this forum. If I wanted to hear republican or democratic bullshit, I wouldn't come to this forum for it because thats not what it's for.
I'm tired of my interest being dictated by people that have no business dictating my future. Why should some rich ass wipe have a say in my level of freedom?
What I can say about all of this, is that I am the reason for Occupy. Who the fuck are you?
