Occupied Wall Street by Balddog4 Occupied Wall Street by Balddog4
Have you guys been looking at what the Wall Street movement have been doing to the rest of the population? These people claim that they are for the 99% as said in the picture. But if they were for the 99% they would not break into building, they would not have cause violence, they would have not caused damage foo the 99% to pay for again. If you watched the news last night you would know, that in Oakland the Occupiers caused 2 million dollars worth of damage when they broke into the Mayors office, that the tax payers now must replace with our own money. They even burn the United States flag. The UNITED STATES FLAG! Come on people, you guys should know by now that the Wall Street Occupiers are NOT for the 99%. Because like I said, if they are for the 99%, then most people would be supporting their cause. But their not. The only people that are supporting the cause are people who have no life, no job and dosen't care if people are hurt, killed or miserable because of them. Those who knows this, good for you and your knowlage. Those who don't, well I sugjest looking at the movement a little bit better.

These guys act like they have to occupy Afghanistan. Seriously, if they hate corporations so much, don't shop at JC Penny or buy soy lattes from Starbucks!

People need to learn to take responsibility for their actions and stop blaming the system for their failures. That's all Occupy Wall Street is, blaming the system.

Of course they can always abuse the First Amendment, given to them by the very country they just love to hate.
Speech is one thing, behaviour is another. I support the right of these people to their publications and web sites, which we can all read in a non-threatening environment.
But as to whether they should be able to rally and march down the roads of upset and intimidated residents is quite another question. Marches are behaviour, not pure speech.

And if they were for the 99%, they wouldn't cause so much damage that the WORKING CLASS would have to pick up. Why ask for a socialist government HERE, when there's plenty of them already made? JUST LEAVE.

Also, I compliment you for swiftly owning that Occupier in the comments. It was rather impressive.

Thanks for your comment. The guy I was arguing with was just saying the same thing over and over. I kept asking him for proof that the Occupiers ARE peaceful, but he wasn't giving me any because he knows that there aren't any good info in the first place. And the fact that he gave up, just shows you that they aren't good for the country.

Anyway onto your statement. I know, why can't they just leave. I mean if they are saying that America is a horrible place to live in, then why are they staying here? If they don't like how this country was built on then don't live here. The only reason why they aren't leaving is because deep down inside they know that the rest of the world is worst off than America. That's why they don't leave.

Pretty much, they're complaining just for the sake of complaining.

Occupy Wall Street, how about you occupy your OWN street and let those of us who actually want to work, WORK.

"Occupy your own street," that was funny. I laughed at that part. I was talking about this to my twin brother yesterday. One of the things I said was that if the Occupied Wall street people were writing their own Constitution let them. Because my dad said that if the OWS wanted to seperate them selves from the country, let them. Let them live in the park for their country. Only put up a cement wall with machine guns pointed in their directions with rasor wire right next to them. Cut off the water to the park, and let see how long they last as their own country.

And my dad said this as the Occupy "movement" (I use quotation marks because movement implies that it's going somewhere and the Occupiers are just staying in one place) continued protesting during one of the biggest snow-storms in recent history:

"Let them."

I can list several examples. In fact look at these sites.

[link]

The link above has a video. I want you to take a look at it.

[link]

This one is about the Occupy Wall street protesters breaking into the Oakland Capital and destroying things that are inside.

[link]

This one is about the Occupiers throwing things at the police.

[link]

And this one is when they blocked off ports that bring in goods that are importent to the United States.

Take a look at these sites and see if the Occupied Wall Street protest is peaceful.

*ahem*
Those are not Wall Street protestors. Those are Oakland protestors. At least the ones in the second link.
Get your facts aligned.
And blocking shipping is not rioting. It is blocking shipping.
The MAJORITY of Occupy Wall Street are peaceful.
The shipping blocking is caused by Occupiers, which protest because of varied circumstances.
Those varied circumstances are caused by the government, so in turn, that causes these ship blocks to be the government's fault.
And that third one is weird. All I can say is that they are bad examples.

Uh, the Oakland protesters ARE part of the Wall Street Protest movement. Blocking shipping IS rioting. Majority of Occupy Wall Street ARE NOT peaceful.
And how can ship blocking be the Government fault? Besides not stopping the movement when it was started. I gave you information that are true, and if you think otherwise than, tell me where you get YOUR infomation. So me evidence that SHOWS that the Occupy Wall Street movement is peaceful. Until you do, I will stand by what I said, and I will not retract my words.

Well, yeah. The American flag is our Livly hood. (can't spell XP) I know that our first adendment rights allows us to burn the flag if we want, but as Americans why would we do that? Especially if we love our Country. Because if we love our country than shouldn't we be wanting to protect everything that makes America America?

I just don't care about nationalism. I wouldn't burn the flag, but I recognize that the flag has been used for not only good causes [link] but also bad causes [link]

And BTW, it's livelihood.

I just know that some people get far more worked up about it than others.

Also, that flag-burning thing was one incident at Occupy Oakland in late January. Here's some examples of an Occupy protest with flag-waving without any flag-desecration. [link] [link]

Just like I wouldn't assume that all Tea Party activists are closet racists who just hate Obama for being black. It's just not true. The way I see it, the main difference (non-cultural, that is) between the Tea Party and Occupy is where the blame is directed. The Tea Party seems to generally blame big government, while Occupy seems to generally blame big business.

Would you say that's true?
Reply
:iconbalddog4:
Balddog4 Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2012
What you are saying is true and I agree with you. It just what the Occupy people don't understand is that Big Business is what brings in the money. The wealthy are the ones that bring in jobs and money. They just don't understand that you can't be hired by a poor person, because they don't have the money to pay you or anyone. The wealthy does. That's why it's stupid when I hear them saying that they are for the 99%. Because if they were for the 99% they would be asking the big business to make more money, so they can build more buildings and businesses, so they can hire more people to work at the buildings.

It's also a difference between which side should do more: public or private?

I guess you have the argument for the private side, but for the public side is the argument that for businesses, helping people comes second, third, or even last, but certainly not first; making money comes first. So when the primary goal is to make money, and they are allowed to make money by any means necessary, they're not necessarily going to look out for the prosperity of their workers, the ones other than the managers and officers. The idea that people are naturally selfish and greedy which I think is generally true. Therefore, since not everyone is altruistic (most people probably aren't) laws have to be made in order to make sure the bosses consider the prosperity of the workers. Stuff like safety laws, minimum wage laws, laws allowing workers to settle grievances with their bosses, etc. (Implying that the society isn't at a state of worker's self-management in which there is less of a dichotomy, if any, between workers and bosses.)

Or so the argument goes.

Also interesting is that Ron Paul is seen as a sort of "godfather" of the Tea Party, but I've encountered my fair share of Occupiers who support him as well.

They're frustrated that the majority of American dollars belong to only 1% of the population. They are the "normal" people, (the 99%, if you will) and they want the wealth to be more evenly distributed.

Admittedly, riots are something that make perfect sense in human nature - people get frustrated, that energy gets translated into the group setting and they lash out.

This reminds me of a funny story some time ago, I ran into a pair of these Occupy L.A. morons in a supermarket I shop at and I asked them if they were attending that 'little party in Los Angeles' the awswered back that they were, then I said to them "I do feel sorry for those poor people in New York," to which they figured I was talking about the protestors, I said, "those poor stockbrokers that can't get to work."

And the sad thing is that this group, Occupy Oakland, did something similar last November: [link]

The saddest part was that, in that instance, they shut down a port that was already struggling, thus hurting it even more: [link]

I know. They were stopping people to go and unload the shipment, that is for the 99% that they claim to represent. Because Oakland is one of the major ports that people rely on for some of their things.

Occupy Oakland? More like Anarchy Oakland. I'm in support of them wanting to change things, even though I don't agree with the changes they want (though more accountability across the board is severely needed). "We're protesting peacefully!" they cry as they destroy property, public and private alike. Jail ALL the scofflaws! If they want to be free, they need to follow the rules like the Tea Partiers do!
