    Dear Occupy Idiots,


    Name one thing that has changed the way the world works since your little adventure in Stupid started.



    Businesses still exist to make money.

    The Same Politicians are here.

    You're still living in your mom's basement, only with injuries and legal bills, and someone stole your IPAD.

    There are still rich people paying their fare share.

    You're more broke than ever before.

    Occupy on your resume hasn't got you a single job.

    They are getting what they want. Did anyone read about the billions of dollars companies can save by killing off their employee insurance plans? These idiots are the red cape.

    B of A, Niketown, Wells and other buildings have been damaged. Unfortunately its not over yet, my mrs is safe, a few blocks away from the danger area and hopefully will stay that way. Im hoping they close early. I will be there soon to pick her up and hoping to not have to go through the chaos.

    Appears most of the Zombies are wearing all black.
    McGinn should outlaw black clothing, or at a minimum impose a 10 day waiting period on the wearing of such.

    It seems the protests in Seattle are always ramped up. I was living near there in 1999 and remember the WTO protests.

    On a side note: It's actually a sunny day there and this is how they spend it?

    In Ohio some of them spent the day in custody, after trying to blow up a bridge with fake C4 they bought from an undercover FBI agent. They wanted to "blow up a bridge
    to bring down financial institution signs in downtown Cleveland." They actually planted the explosives and tried to detonate them.

    I'm surprised the occupy movement admitted these guys had participated.

    I don't think many of those people support Ron Paul. In fact, his economic ideals are exactly the opposite of hwat the are fighting for.

    I live south in Vancouver, and since it's currently hailing God almighty huge chunks of ice, I doubt there's many protesters here in town. I mainly see people...what is it? Oh yeah...

    ...working!

    These morons make our State look stupid.

    Ditto!

    Ron Paul is the opposite of everything these morons want.

    All the Best,

    I am staying clear of downtown today way to many idiots there at the moment. Also the mayor has just issued an emergency order allowing the police to confiscate anything that can be used as a weapon.

    Break out the 2 and a half and bump it up to 200 PSI. Problem solved.

    OMG! They are headed to the Wells Fago building because "they believe WF supports deportation of illegals."
    I need more popcorn.
