    I do think that the movement is rather vague, and this is coming from a bleeding-heart liberal who believes that the way taxes are set up and run in America is absurd.

    I have some Facebook friends and other acquaintances who are very into this movement, but they are spending most of their time being angry at people with money. For instance, I saw one this morning that just said “F*** all the rich people: OCCUPY WALL STREET.” 

    That said, I totally agree that there needs to be a change. Education needs to be more affordable, and health care needs to be more accessible for all. Period.

    If I owned a business, I would not be apt to hire the majority of the people I have seen protesting in my city and on the news.  Too much dreadlocks and bongo playing for my taste.  I think there are people who have legitimate concerns for our country, however most of the people look like hippie slobs to me.  Damn, I’ve gotten old.

    This “Occupy” movement is getting ridiculous. I still don’t know what they are even protesting and they anybody (including the protestors) will know when they have accomplished their “goal”.
