    Havent heard from our friends in a while? I was reading something earlier that had the word "occupy" in it, and it made me think of them. Wasnt this summer the one that they were going to wage war on the people that work for a living? :dunno:

    I think even I'd be tired of it, by now. I mean (harrumph) I take what I have for granted and demand more, and believe that rich people should pay their fair share, but it must get tiring standing outside and yelling all day.

    They're still around. But like a lot of things they've became a part of the landscape and you really don't see them. And the news outlets apparently got bored of them and quit reporting on them.
    I know a few weeks ago in my little town the local occupy group staged an overnight with speeches and what-not leading up to, in a vacant lot, open to any who wants to participate. Seems only a handful of folks participated. Wasn't worthy of practically any write up afterwards. The news article telling about the upcoming event took more space than the article telling the outcome.
    I laughed!

    They ran out of other peoples money.

    The couple of OWS Salt Lake people I talked to last year were paying their way with parents credit cards of student loan money. Cash ran out, movement ends.

    Darn! We threw a party and no one showed up!

    Maybe it even was a revulsion to its supporters (Dems & Obama & Soros and others who poop in the street, rape & shoot drugs while using their 1% supplied Ipods, Iphones, and Mac computers).

    Can you actually imaging any of the OWS crowd being in charge (of anything)?

    And maybe even some of the supporters of the movement could see what the poopers, druggies, sex perverts etc were doing to the average Americans opinion and pulled back cuz it's an election year.

    I saw these folks in the center of my town Wednesday... a sign with occupayarlingtonma.com (or org, can't recall). All I can think of is really? What purpose does that serve?

    They had a few pop tents set up. Just awesome.

    The local alternate paper, 'The Cleveland Scene' did a piece on Occupy Cleveland a couple of months ago.

    The finding were: Everybody wanted to eat the donated canned food, but no one wanted to do the dishes. They were given use of the restrooms in a vacant office building, no one wanted to clean then afterwards. Typical Millennial Generation Slackers...

    There are a few true believers.

    They want to see an end to Wall Street greed, just like the Tea Party.

    A handful want to make a the world a better place.

    The rest are just hanging around making noise because it's the hip thing to do. As the Occupy Bowel Movement is no longer fresh dump. They move on...sort of like feces in a colon.

    There's the new Robin Hood movement, where instead of stealing from the government to give to the poor, you steal from the rich to give to the government to give to the poor and to the bureaucrats for a few self-selected causes. Ridiculous.

    OWS was giving the Democrats/Obama a bad name. Either the protests died down or the MSM stopped reporting on it. After all, there's an election coming up.
