[QUOTE=Mr. Sun;32720781]Not been so into this story. But today in my business class he wanted us to write a short essay on whats going on and why or why not we'd think it might work. I heard that there are Occupation San Francisco, Sacramento, Denver, Boston, Las Angeles. A lot more probably. I can't believe how quick this spread. I guess we were all just sitting on a timebomb? This is really exciting. I hope this doesn't die off like so many other American protests. Its been going pretty strong and I hope to go check out the protests in San Francisco one of these days.[/QUOTE] You missed Occupy San Antonio. About 1,000 people showing up to protest downtown. 7th largest populated city though so it's not a huge turnout. Lots of conflict going on between the 2 sides here.

[QUOTE=chunkymonkey;32722108]Your right-wing bias never ceases to amaze me. No, instead the tea-baggers stood around being ignorant, racist, and all around hateful bigots who shouted obscenities 24/7. Honestly, people who oppose progress are more offensive and retarded than someone (supposedly) shitting on a cop car.[/QUOTE] Countering Glabers generalizations with more generalizations. Bravo. Look, the Tea Party was full of uninformed idiots but to say they were all racist rednecks would not be fair.

[QUOTE=Pascall;32722307]Damn, I'm sad I missed it.[/QUOTE] There are 4 major cities in Texas, surely there will be an Occupy Dallas/Austin/Houston you could hit up.

I never heard of the TEA party Movement acting as bad as the Occupy movement.[/QUOTE] Well let's see, I think I can pretty much invalidate those: 1. A camp in a park, not entirely sanitary in every aspect? I'm [I]really[/I] surprised. 2. How the parties view the protests is irrelevant to what the protesters actually stand for. 3. Really, Herman Cain? The guy who said "[B]I don't have facts to back this up[/B], but I believe that the protests are being organized by the Democrats"?

I hear stories of people urinating and defecating wherever they stand while at large, crowded concerts/events.
Riot police in OccupyAustin. Good show.
Okay, I got an article to back up that number 2 on a 911.

From what I'm hearing, this Occupy movement is making no effort to clean up anything.

I've heard (probably wrong) that some protestors are arguing amongst each other? T/F?
[QUOTE=Zambies!;32722586]I've heard (probably wrong) that some protestors are arguing amongst each other? T/F?[/QUOTE]You probably have a few small disagreements, most likely between Ron Paul Revolutionaries and the rest of the movement.
Yeah, I'm not one hundred percent sure what to think. Personally as a republican, I'm a status quo type guy, but if its obvious (protesting) the population wants it, I'll back reform, just my 0.02

If the owners of the park really gave a fuck they'd hire people to get rid of it, but no, it seems that instead of cleaning it up they'd rather use it as an excuse that the protest is bullshit. If nobody is emptying the trashcans of course it's going to pile up.

[QUOTE=Chicken_Chaser;32721627]At occupy Oklahoma city. Kind of too dark for pictures. Will post images if I feel like it etc.[/QUOTE] There were two men in suits laughing at us. They'll get theirs when people march to the bank tomorrow. Idiots at school know nothing of walstreet and when we explain to them they say shit like "hurr theyre lazy need to stop complaining" One idiot said derp i work at Braums and I live well and I'm like dude you live with your fucking parents. I gave examples of why shit is fucked etc and how if anything it's his duty as a fellow countryman, no matter you party of choice, to protest. He raged. [img]http://i.somethingawful.com/forumsystem/emoticons/emot-eng99.gif[/img] At least this weekend I know a lot of people will go to the occupation. There's a lot of interesting people there. Lots of cannabis too. :) I really hope I don't sound like an outcast-hipster faggot because I assure that I'm not. :v: Can't help but feel out of place when most people are saying you're an idiot for supporting this.

Second image is trash on the side of the street where they come to collect the rubbish. Have you seen New York City streets? There are piles of trash to be collected. It's common.
