I live in Portland, OR. Home of the hippies, pot heads, crazies & bums. I'm VERY tired of this Occupy Portland crap especially after today. There have been reports of ODs in their camp & they say the media is painting a negative picture of them. Then today (or technically yesterday) the police took over the park that they decided to occupy. They started protesting & the media interviewed plenty of people LIVE & none of them had the same reason to be there & only one mentioned the economy. Majority of them were basically giving the definition of Anarchy & labeling it the Occupy Movement.

These people started by fighting against big business, taxing the lower class more than the higher class, gas prices & banks but now they are going against it with their actions. We are getting state taxes RAISED to clean up a park full of human shit, trash, heroine needles & resodding the grass while they all moved to a land mark & tourist attraction which will hurt the tourism to the city & further hinder our economy here in Portland.

I'm fucking pissed at these idiots because they are no longer occupying a park, but now occupying my time by shutting down 2 blocks of the city today & my wallet by forcing taxes to be RAISED to clean up after their asses. Occupy supporters say taxes won't go up much because its just a clean up but they must be forgetting about all the fuckin cops that we had to pay to make sure they didn't cause havok in the city. Literally we had cops from 6 cities & 2 county sheriff departments out there for what will be two days starting now.

Is it the same in your city, are you fed up with this & when do you think it will stop?

Can we start the Occupy Occupy Movement?

I was done with it as soon as it started. None of them know anything about what they're protesting and they are the most unorganized riot in history.

I never analyzed the Occupy Movement from that perspective. Maybe it's because I get all my news coverage from liberal outlets.

Still, I find it quit shocking how tunnel visoned these protestors are. They get all hyped up on nationalism and propaganda and forget that they're doing more bad than good; if at all.

^^^ This. Bunch of lazy bums if you ask me. Yeah it's hard to find a job these days, but not impossible. I'm working 2 right now and what it boils down to is they want the government to take the money from the rich and give it to them so they can sit around and smoke pot and play the bongos all day like they are deep thinking douche bags. Shut the fuck up and go flip burgers if you want a job. It may not be the job you like but at least you have the satisfaction of earning your own money and not taking handouts from hardworking taxpayers like some filthy hobo.

I hate the idea that our current generation has. They look down on these "menial" jobs like flipping burgers or waiting tables when their grandparents or even their own parents had to do that to raise their ungrateful asses. Just because you're not going to be the CEO of a major agricultural bank or a Hollywood actor overnight doesn't mean that finding work is impossible. I find it even more aggravating when it's parents doing this crap; leaving their childre at home and not providing for them because a bunch of idiots thought that rioting around in the streets would earn 'em a quick buck.

I am honestly not upset at all about the reports of police brutality or whatever they want to call it. It should slap a little sense into them. And the thing is that I gurantee that most of them voted for Obama and will vote for him again when he hadn't done anything but blame other people for shit being bad as well. It's really freaking irritating that "adults" can't try to make the best of a bad situation and would rather sit around and whine about it. They want some kind of socialist or communist country where there is no rich or poor but that's not how America works. Our fathers/grandfathers/etc. didn't fight and/or die for America to be turned into what the very people they fought against wanted it to be. And dammit wanting to be rich is HOW THE FREAKING ECONOMY WORKS!!!! You want to be rich, so you work hard and become rich, that's the freaking incentive.

I totally agree with everything said in here so far. Day one of Occupy Wall Street, NOBODY knew what these people were protesting. They literally looked like a bunch of idiots who got high & decided to make signs about shit that was bothering them. If they want to change things for the new generation, then how about a higher graduation rate, lower hs drop out rates & higher employeement rates for people 18-30 instead of being bums & sitting around all day doing heroine, smoking weed & calling it a protest.

I see it that way as well..... There are jobs out there.... Even though some aren't the best....
But I also see it as in the past we had Presidents who done things to really stimulate the economy.... Take FDR for example probably the greatest President of all time or JFK probably the 2nd greatest...... Even Truman and Eisenhower and Hoover are others that comes to mind that created jobs, created programs and helped out the middle and working class.... We are in need of some kind of work reform or new stimulus programs and acts to help the lower class..... or if continue on it will be the same thing that has happened over the past 30 or 40 years.... the Rich gets richer the Poor gets poorer.... and thats basically what is happening...

Let me preface by stating that I usually identify as slightly more liberal

the whole thing is bullshit, if the people doing it really want change, then why do they refuse to actually unite beyond being in the same place at the same time?

Look at some of the protests that we have had in just US history that changed things, they all had 2 things over this current crop of crap

1. a coherent, shared goal

2. at least one steady public figure explaining to the media outlets what their demands were

How can you take any group seriously when you can't pin down precisely what the hell they want, and when they also have no idea how to change it? There is a reason that so many other groups have seemingly jumped onto this bandwagon and that is because there is such a lack of coherency that damn near anyone can say that the "occupiers" are for the same principles that they stand for, be it anti-corporation, enviromentalists, people fighting to legalize marijuana, PETA or whatever...

It is sickening because it is a complete waste and actually makes the real issues at hand (The bastardization of our banks, corporations being the ones making government policy through officials that they have effectively bought, shitty economy) just that much easier to dismiss as bullshit.

My favorite part of this article is the first sentence telling us about the movement's "intentionally vague demands". Yeah, like that was on purpose.

Actually a few of their (supporters? fellow protesters"?) have said about the same thing, it's why they refuse to have a leader, like they are purposefully failing
