    I find nothing wrong with peaceful protests and we are guaranteed the right to assemble but the occupy Wall Street protesters seemed to deliberately trash the cities. This is not acceptable and may be why they don’t get anywhere with their complaints.

      So true and if given any power, they would probably trash the whole Country. These people all know what is wrong, but not one has any idea as to how to make it right. They, like all protestors are as clueless as our leaders and obviously have nothing better to do than cause trouble. They need to get organized and form a body with some ideas and agendas. Maybe then some folks will take note of them. Who wants to follow a leaderless bunch of disorganized clueless groupies?

        Enough people to elect him twice to the WH.

      They even shut down the Port of Oakland for a day, have violently trashed private businesses (including a Whole Foods market) and have attacked police officers. They were caught placing plastic explosives on a bridge and creating a bomb to frame the TEA Party.

      That’s a terrorist organization, by definition.

      But Obama’s DHS is training to kill Americans in Uncle Sam hats who defend the Constitution…

    I suggest these protesters pack up and move to Syria; they’d appreciate their help.

    Ya know, if the “green” start ups just paid all their employees higher wages, they wouldn’t be going out of bidness!
