Besides being a waste for government resources, what is their point? What is the overall message and do they think anyone cares?

It looks the people who actually care are much less than 1% of the 99%.

What is their agenda though. I don't watch the news and only read articles on topics that interest me so I have no idea what their actual agenda is. And what they hope to accomplish. The only thing I saw on the news was that there were like 10 tents set up in Philly, some knucklehead was holding seminars and it costs $80K per day to deal with the morans. Didn't watch long enough to see lolvic.

The world economy is so systemically dysfunctional, there are no immediate solutions. "Occupy", at least, is getting the conversation started. I think the occupiers are heroes.

Well, I would say that looks are deceiving. There are lots of people that aren't protesting that feel the same way.

Possibly.

What is the agenda, though? What is their desired outcome? Just trying to understand.

Agreed.
100% agreed.
Occupy is, IMO, in some respects about consciousness and awareness. So many people are stumbling through their life entirely disinterested in the political process, in their own civic duty to help steer the nation in the way it needs to go. I believe in large part this movement is about getting the dialogue started so that more people take a look around them and begin to ask questions. If this is the only thing this movement accomplishes in the end, then so be it, I still mark it as a success.

One of the topics is more oversight on Wall Street to prevent future events like the credit default swap crash, insider trading, Bernie Madoff types. All of which they were warned about but just let it happen. Are you for corruption or against it?

There's more than 10 tents. Philly sent them a letter saying they might have to leave soon because they had planned to build a 50 million dollar skating rink soon. so :rolleyes: 32,000 a day in Police overtime, (and they would have been on duty doing something else)
Good thing the Phillies didn't win because those parades would have cost the police close to a Million and they don't pay wage or property taxes.

I also find some it inspirational and moving

Perhaps taking a more serious approach to the subject rather than a humorous one might be better. :wink:

Be a part of the solution. Laughing at it just makes you look like either you don't care or think that this won't affect you at some point down the road.

Understand that your interjection of laughter detracts and in someways insults those who have taken up this cause. That is why you end up with the reaction you get.

If you had something that you felt so strongly about and others mocked and laughed at you...would that frustrate you?

Reason to be pissed off #2: what happened to your bailout money
http://www.rollingst...hustle-20100217

A year and a half after they were minutes away from bankruptcy, how are these assholes not only back on their feet again, but hauling in bonuses at the same rate they were during the bubble?

The answer to that question is basically twofold: They raped the taxpayer, and they raped their clients.

dude, it happens every day on these boards

by me,, by you, by others
:wink:


Oh I see...It happens therefore it is ok and right to do. There's some fucked up backwards thinking logic for you.

I tried to get you to understand in a civil way why things are important to people but you choose the path of mockery and laughter as opposed to saying nothing.

I think I just defined troll.....:dunno:

oh, so you've never mocked or laughed at me? is that what you are saying?
you are saying no one here but me mocks and laughs at others thoughts and feelings?


Look..you bring a lot of the crap you get on yourself by trolling. I do laugh at some silly things you say. It seems so many threads...no matter what the subject matter...seem to come down to this exact conversation in regards to your posts. It's not just me. You do it with everybody. It detracts from the conversation people are trying to have. This leads me to believe that the problem lies not with the 20 other people on the board that you are consistantly butting heads with but with you.

I'm sorry but that's how I see it. Now that being said can we stick to the topic please? If that is too difficult then go annoy someone else in another thread.

Thank you
