Forum Post: Your methods show no respect for the 99

Why do you march during rush hour in DC? And why would you want to shut down the NYC subway for that matter? I work in the city and have a family who needs me at home, as I am sure most of the city does. Your message is lost in your offensive methods.

I must agree, you do not represent the 99% but rather are making the 1% stronger by your actions and conduct... Its quite a shame, I wish it was thought out better and implemented more effectively...

[-] 1 points by Qwerty (15) 3 years ago

No. Emailing won't cut it... But the 1% does not take mass transit, they don't utilize these parks, all OWS is doing is pissing over the commoners and making the 1% stronger by creating a rift between the 99ers...

So. . . you would prefer that people just email their grievances?

[-] 1 points by armchairecon1 (169) 3 years ago

the 1% doesn't need to do anything.

OWS's ignorance and incompetence will be its own downfall

[-] 1 points by Qwerty (15) 3 years ago

We are suppose to be making the lives of the 1% more difficult not the 99%, why not disrupt their lives, their homes, etc... Why the average joe, this is why your/our message is failing!

Your family is not important compared to the rest of the country. If you and yours died tomorrow the world would not change a bit, so please take you and your ego the fuck out of here.

1% type people do not ride the subway. The only people being bothered will be the 99% on their way to work and school. Hardly a good way to garner support for OWS. The less public support OWS has, the easier it will be for cities to remove them.

People within OWS (whoever they may be) need to decide if they are truly about the 99% or if they are a left-wing fringe group. Occupying the subways on Thursday afternoon will definitely be seen as the later by the rest of the 99%.

Way to work on the OWS reputation. It's in the gutter and you're taking it to the sewer. Bravo!!.... golf clap.

Oh noes! I sure hope that the media,fox and glen beck don't get ahold of my comment.Oh man, I could destroy the movement for sure! How dare I say whats on my mind. Gee golly,I should have lived under the delusion that some whore and her fat fucking,worthless dipshit kids' progress is more important than the ENTIRE FUCKING NATION! gawl! how dare I!

Well, considering most of the nation is obese, you may want to change your strategy.. just sayin'. Good luck on cursing everyone on here though.

It's people like this that make me glad to not be part of this. Let me translate for you what exactly he is trying to say in his posts: "I'm a spoiled brat who spent 4 years at college "discovering myself" and partying, on my parent's money, instead of getting a degree that's worth more than toilet paper. Now, I'm mad that I have to have responsibilities and pay the bills. I want you, evil successful people, to fix my problems and the rest of you are not as important as my whining, ranting, neediness".

HeavySigh hit the nail right on the head.

Thank you

[-] 1 points by moediggity (646) from Houston, TX 3 years ago

not even close to what I'm saying

[-] 1 points by HeavySigh (227) 3 years ago

Sorry, I forgot to throw in the generalizations and stereotyping about other political opinions. "I hate politicians that don't vote to give me free stuff and I think it makes me look smarted to generalize everyone that disagrees with me as watching a certain news channel with certain anchors". There is that better?

Correct! These folks try to compare themselves with revolutions in other countries where there is no real way of protesting legally and easily. We are not Libya or Syria. You can protest quite easily and legally here in the USA and make all your good points. This movement doesn't respect its fellows which it rather boldly and falsely claims to represent. It is about unleashing hostility and anger over genuine gripes rather than a focused effort to make real change through the legal tools at hand that would readily allow for it if everyone came together to do so.

[-] 2 points by e307465 (147) 3 years ago

I'm about ready to start my own movement. No elite, no OWS... only Americans. First bill introduced.... Term Limits (But not until we have over a million signatures and cannot be ignored).

Yep. Drop the nut bags from both ends of the spectrum so the rest of us 80% normal people can get things back in gear and actually get something done.
