Seriously? You are the one jumping to conclusions, sir.
And what have YOU contributed to society besides this bitter and pointless commentary?
Shame on you for wishing harm on your fellow Americans. What makes YOU any better than them? Do you honestly think that you have any positive impact on this world by hoping that the cops club people for exercising their constitutional rights?
For your information, I served my country in the Navy for 4 years which led me to have the opportunity to go to college and pay for all my expenses with the GI Bill. Not everybody has been as fortunate as me in that regard.
Are you happy with the status quo? Cause I'm not. I might not be able to protest in a major city, and these protests might not MEAN anything to you, but it means something to me. The whole world does not fit into the cozy labels you have made.
My dad lost his pension because some banker decided he wanted to play blackjack with a stacked deck and did that banker lose anything? NO, because the losses were insured and the banks got a hefty bailout on top of it.
Do you even know how many wealthy corperations haven't paid taxes this year?
Do you have a job? How secure are you in the idea that you will still have that job in a year? If you ARE secure, then consider yourself fortunate because not everybody is in a position to be secure in their careers. Unemployment is rampant right now. What character flaw do you think I posess by admitting that I don't have a job currently? Does that make me stupid? Lazy? Unworthy? I dare you to go down to the unemployment office and tell THEM that they're all lazy.
It's social darwinism and it sucks. The idea that poor=weak/lazy/stupid is such a flawed values system, I can't even begin to articulate how angry it makes me.
There are just as many conservatives taking advantage of social welfare as there are liberals. This isn't even a liberal movement!
The Occupy movement has made it abundantly clear that they will not change their opinions based on who is doing the funding. Just because MoveOn is sponsoring the event does not mean that they have ANY say in the process.
Lazy? I have 2 kids and I go to school full time. Think before you talk.
Have you not paid attention to current events in the last decade? In the past week? OW is protesting at the epicenter of the corporate world. Wallstreet is in the back yard of the folks who are bribing our politicians and making it impossible for the democratic process to be revealed in this country. The fact that we are coming to Snellville is not to protest anybody in Snellville in particular, but to stand by our friends and family in the larger cities and show the locals that we agree with their position.
When the Tea Party planned a rally at Gwinnett Mall 2 years ago, were they seriously thinking that anybody in the Mall would be able to give in to their demands? NO! They wanted to go there to be heard! Too bad Simon Mall had other plans and didn't allow them to protest on their property.
Nobody is trying to be cute or trendy. The folks in New York who have slept out in the cold and snow didn't think about being cute or trendy. The folks in Richmond who had their personal possessions bulldozed and slashed by the police weren't being cute or trendy. The folks in Oakland who are being gassed and shot at with rubber Bullets aren't being cute or trendy.
Shame on you for wishing harm to your fellow Americans who are merely standing up to the bullies who have been running the country for far too long. Shame on you for not realizing that this movement effects the entire country. Shame on you for labeling us second class citizens just because you disagree with our opinions.
