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.

@Fall_In_Love22: The DC protest has started barricading streets at conservative events. To read both sides of the story, it seems like completely different witness accounts.
I know the streets they’re talking about–scary that they weren’t letting people and buses through… I can’t even imagine how tense it must have been.

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.

Okay, so a month later and Occupy DC is still in the park, and they’ve tried to erect a wooden structure to protect them from the cold. I have to admit, when I read about that, I got really angry that they were so defensive about it. Where, in this entire country, can you just put up a wooden structure in the middle of public property and not expect to get at least fined for it?

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”.
I like this man’s take on the whole thing: http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=OAOrT0OcHh0&
