R They tried to block Diana from getting to work…Luckily she is a ninja, and cannot be stopped.
T Same with M. I told her to use pepper spray but she has this weird trait that the y chromosome eliminates called compassion.
Ana Ratner it’s better than consuming without thinking and using without caring. At least they do the best they can.
TJ I swear every single one of the occupy SF protesters is homeless
T I agree. Ana. Those OWS are wasting resources at an excessive level. Using my gas to drive their Prius. Drinking my water and breathing my air.
R yeah. its insane they have ruined any chance they had of correcting some of the minor injustices by attacking the wrong people, the wrong places, and generally not having a clear message, with incredibly unfeasible and un-american ideas. I say we ship them off to some other fuckin’ country…problem solved..
T Send em to china. Thy will have a blast with communist capitalism if they think things are bad in the US. People like them fail to realize what a great country we live in. Pathetic traitors.
R fuck man, china is better. As your mom said. Capitalism with complete government control…
R Yeah they are just lazy fucks.
A Too True
Ana Ratner MINOR INJUSTICES are you insane?
Ana Ratner We are currently fighting three wars in countries we have no need to be in – killing civilians daily and tearing apart families. There is no help given to people that have been consistently fucked over for decades (Native Americans, Blacks, Latinos..). We own prisons over seas where human rights don’t apply to the prisoners, where they are tortured until they admit to committing crimes they did not. We have separated over 1 million families because the people who we need in order for our country to run our country are “illegal”. We are building a pipeline from canada to texas that will basically ruin any hope for controlling climate change. There are no regulation on what goes into the food that you eat or slave labour employed to make it. Innocent people are put to death by our own government without any evidence except evidence proving their innocence. And do you know who pays for that? ME and YOU and everyone else in this country. Imagine if our tax money went to paying our workers more, putting kids through school, paying for people who can’t afford healthcare. But wait, you are right! It is so “Un-American” to have equality, free-speech, the right to live, eat, go to a decent hospital, and have any say in what decisions are being made by the government you elected.
R If you go to Zuccati park you will see its a bunch of drug addicts, and people who are getting violent.
R They have no idea what they want its just a bunch of left wing nuts pissed that the kid in class has a cooler bike.
R we will CRUSH our economy if we tax the corporations more. They already pay some of the higher taxes in the world, and the rich…ohh yeah they pay for more than 40% of the taxes. There is so much to this issue, and lord knows I think its fucked up when a CEO fires people to get out of a hole and then takes a bonus. But we need to exercise good business practices, and get rid of some of the people who got us in that hole, other than that these people are going against the ideals our country was founded on.
R My main point is these people need to come together and write plans of action, not be violent and rude to people like me and my girlfriend who are just trying to make an honest buck through good old fashion hard work. I do this because I know that in this country I make myself whoever I want to be. I heard one girl on a youtube video talking about going back to agriculturalism or some bullshit she made up where we went to hunter gatherer, fend for yourself. She feels that if everyone were equal its perfectly fine that masses of people die adapting to this new proposal, yes not ok for her to not have a new car.
Ana Ratner For me the movement isn’t about forming one demand – yet. I think that the most important thing it is accomplishing is that people are talking and getting educated about what goes on in this country. Once people have gotten to a point where they have read and learned enough then it’s time to make change and that happens whether or not you take action as long as people are well-educated. The most successful part of the action is what happens outside of it, communication. Like what we are doing now. Talking, learning, being open to new ideas and people. Forming community, I’ve lived in NYC my whole life and never have I seen people come together the way they are now. That said, it’s a movement about inclusion and transparency, so as with any large group of diverse people you are going to get some anger and some hatred and some “nuts” but you can not judge a whole movement off of some individuals you don’t like. People should do what makes them happy – for me that is knowing how to live using as little money as possible and grow my own food and know what’s in it and where it comes from. That’s something that is important for me and a lot of other people (like the girl you mentioned), if what makes you happy is hard work and making honest money then that’s great, making fun of people for having a different lifestyle (as long as it’s not harmful to others) is irrelevant and mean.
T Find me 2 people who have a point in OWS. They are all hypocritical little bitches. yes this isn’t a perfect world. Maybe that pipeline is not the best thing for nature. But it will create hundreds if not thousands of jobs and decrease our dependence on the countries we are currently at war. This movement is not about communication. To communicate you must have a message and no one in Zuccatti park seems to have their story strait. If they want to make a difference, how about coming up with an idea. The people they are fighting got to where they are by having ideas, being innovative and creating all of the products that have been used to spread the messages of these protestors. If they want to be included, they need to make a difference not just complain. Mediocrity and entitlement do not further our cause as a civilization. I think the only message that seems to be clear is these people want some of the money the 1% are hoarding. Ok, understandable, who doesn’t? But they didn’t fall into it, they worked for it. Some of the most successful people in our history came from nothing. The only reason I make fun of these protestors aside from they approach is their counterintuitive message. Lets not work, sit in a park and yell at our bosses so we can get a better job. We live in the only country that allows people that crazy to speak their mind. Their therapy session is over. They have been the most fantastic neusance in the last few months. Now stop waisting everyones time, get back to work and keep this country driving forward. You don’t like our ideals or how we get shit done, move to Canada.
R I understand some of what they are trying to accomplish, but they have fucked it all up. And now people are getting into a mob mentality that includes as some videos saw straight up Marxist communism. I love my country because I can survive off of fixed income investments living in some remote spot in the woods, or in the big city hustling. I heard one girl say she wanted to go back to growing our own food hunter gatherer style, the person interviewing said “do you realize how many people would die from that” she shrugged it off as though oops too bad, people die…well on the flip side we could just let them die since they have not adapted to our work hard, hustle, prosper plan. Same thing. Having to work for what you earn is why people strive to work hard, our country does not have more Nobel prize winners, and innovations coming from it because we reward mediocrity. Granted I feel there is a certain level where you should give back, but I am here to push my point. Go protest the federal reserve for its bailouts, not wall street. Stocks are a good idea. It allows for companies to fund themselves, and any person to make money off of the corporations success.
R We need to get the nuts out of there so we can see what if any valid points occupiers hold. Until that happens it is just chaos and communism. Things we do NOT allow in this country. One protestor said “yeah capitalism is as damaging to the country as al qaeda, they are just a political group reaching their goals” I mean come on…Lets get some fuckin’ rubber bullets flying and get the few smart ones that are out there to show me a valid point, and a solution that is feasible. “We need to go 100% green” Ok…true, show me how…don’t shut down our system while showing me.
