    I would support this group much much more if they "occupied" the enablers of the institutions they rally against.

    By ignoring the government, OWS seems more like a group of envious college kids than it does a group who truly wants to change the world.

    Corporations can only be as bad/greedy etc etc etc as the government allows them.

    Now I'm not looking for overbearing government involvement in a free market, but clearly some "regulations" are needed.

    However not occupying the WH, Capital or the Pentagon is ignoring much of the problem IMHO.

    Lazy activism is what this is. There is much they could do but it requires much more work. Educate the public on the news the MSM does not report, organize boycotts are just a few examples. Sit ins and disruption of city life for working people are going to do nothing but get them bad press. It would also help out if they would bathe and wear clean cloths once in a while - if they want to be taken seriously.

    And, in all the interviews I have seen, they all say they will vote for Obama. What? He is the most pro-wallstreet President we have ever had. These people actually buy into the: Republicans are rich and evil and Democrats are regular people. Democrats are just as rich and corrupt as Republicans. Honestly, if you can not see that all politicians are either rich and corrupt or on their way to being rich and corrupt then you are a complete idiot.

    They will have zero impact on the 1%, the only ones they are screwing are the 99%. Is that ironic or just sad?

    Unless you are a woman, then you want to get in those rape proof tents.
