Default Occupy Movement

Well its been about a month or more depending were you are located.
What do you think of the Occupy movement now?

I have no problem with free speech and a persons right to demonstrate.
but these people have push the boundaries of good peaceful protest too long and are more of a freak show now then a movement.
If you want to end a war or stop world famine,stand up and make a stand state a point and protest.
But to camp out in a park and say nothing and expect others to give you hand outs is not a protest its a drain on society.
I work for a living and if I want something I work harder to get it. I don't demand the rich just give it to me........... How do you think the rich got rich they saw a need and worked hard to fill that need.
I figured out at a young age how to get money from rich people . Its called GET A JOB.

So what do you think ????

I agree...

I look at it all this way....If i was a billionaire I wouldn't want anyone telling me what i could do with my money, so i don't have any desire to tell anyone what to do with theirs.

Even if i agreed with them, which i don't, i couldn't stand behind a group that has no self respect or no respect for others. The occupy movement is a protest that life isn't fair....well i learned that when i was 5 and the kid down the street had better toys than me...

If they spent as much time looking for a job as they do protesting they would be working. The problem is that they expect to start at the top of the food chain.

I know nothing about what they are protesting. From what I can figure so far, there is a level of discontent within society about what is going on.

It doesn't seem like anyone has really been able to put their finger on it for sure and that is why no one knows what all this stands for.

Is it Wall Street that is the villain? Ok then why? What did they do?

Is it Washington? What did they do?

Maybe out of all this frustration, some focal points will arise that others can agree or disagree with.

Right now it just seems like a mess.
