    Some of us don't claim the Occupy Wall Street protesters, in Business school, we make fun of them!

    yeah i love watching them get arrested. they're just trying to pass the blame of their laziness on to who in their minds are the easiest to blame.

    Where I live, the "occupy" areas look like Grateful Dead concerts, with only a few people who are actually trying to protest wall street. It's gotta be annoying to the people trying to protest, when you got homeless "kids" hitting people up for change during their marches.

    That was a good article and true to every point! But I grew up with video games, I had the Atari's' the Nintendo, the Super Nintendos, I've had them all...but I still choose to play outside more then anything because my friends and I had so much fun playing outside then being inside all day.

    I think it's sad how Social people are on the internet but once off it they lack any kind of social skill.

    I think it's funny the "occupiers" say they can't find jobs(atleast the ones here say that) and blah blah blah. One guy I work with is 100% for the 99% :)rolleyes:) and is always donating money to them. I finally told him that people can get jobs, they may not be the greatest but atleast their getting paid. Then he turned it on to they can't afford health insurance, and so on.. Too many things being argued.. My families hired 8 people to work on our Drilling Rigs, and they have all quit saying it's too hard, I know for a fact that 5 of them haven't tried to get a job since...

    Heres a video of our local "occupiers" vs our local news.."someone" decided to relieve themselves at the bank next door to the courthouse

    A unionized public employee, a member of the Tea Party and a CEO are sitting at a table. In the middle of the table there is a plate with a dozen cookies on it. The CEO reaches across and takes 11 cookies, looks at the tea partier and says,"look out for that union guy, he wants a piece of your cookie."
