Its getting chilly and wet out there . I was in NYC a few times during the last week or two and saw some of the protesters doing their thing and a lot of NYPD padding their paychecks on OT . Looks like snow north of there so they better get some warm clothes forthwith .

I lived in NYC a few years back and this would be considered mild weather by New Yorkers. Wait until they start waking up with 12 degree temps and highs that never get over 20 for weeks on end. It can go months and never get above freezing. Also throw in miserable amounts of snow in the mix. I hated how long the winters would go and I was not in a tent in a park in Manhattan. One February we had a day that got to 48 degrees we thought it was summer and contemplated going to the beach. Instead we went ice skating in Central Park with no coats. No coats in February was like a dream come true but only lasted for a day.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Quoting

Sire, I kneel before thee. YOU are SO MUCH BETTER than they are. Gas them. Kill them. Sie sind Untermenschen. Sie sind ein Mitglied des Königshauses.



Quoting 
This incident disproves lies told by the corporate media who try to demonize the diverse members of the Occupy movement with words like “hippies.” In the four times that I have been at Occupy Santa Rosa, I have seen numerous Veterans for Peace, professors, physicians, families, and many students and others who do not fit that demeaning stereotype. Diversity is the signature of this movement for the 99% against the 1% who rule the United States.


Marine Down in Oakland Counterpunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names


Quoting 
Scott Olsen survived two tours of Iraq, but his life could be over after being critically injured by a police projectile at Occupy Oakland, The Guardian reports. He's 24 years old.
As we know, Occupy Oakland got incredibly ugly this week as police tried to remove protesters from their camp in front of City Hall by using tear gas, fire crackers, and rubber bullets.

Quoting 
The injury to Olsen is a shot being heard around the world, like the Kent State murders during the Vietnam War, though so far less deadly. Occupiers and supporters are calling for the prosecution of the police responsible for this brutality, which could impede future police violence.

Iraq Veterans Against the War, of which Olsen is a member, writes that he “is one of many veterans who have returned home and gotten involved in the Occupy protests taking place in hundreds of cities around the nation. Veterans like Scott recognize that they are part of the 99% who face uncertain economic futures, including few job prospects and rising tuition costs. Rates of homelessness and unemployment are higher for veterans than for their civilian counterparts.”

“I’m absolutely devastated that someone who did two tours of Iraq and came home safely is now lying in a US hospital because of the domestic police force,” his friend and hospital visitor Adele Carpenter told the UK’s Guardian. Olsen served in Iraq in 2006 and 2007 with the 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines and left the military in 2010. It is ironic that Olsen’s injury was sustained in the streets of Oakland, which the police transformed into a war zone.

Sorry, Zondor, but simply because someone served in the military doesn't make them experts on America's socio-economic system. Like everyone else, veterans can do stupid things too - which is why there are roughly 140,000 of them currently in prison.

Are you serious?

I'm starting to see a bunch of idiots out there. I am sure the USA will be becoming USSA soon because of this group thinking government is the solution to everything instead of the problem.

They want other to pay more tax but just not them.

Of course, you are right. I said a long time ago that Bernard Madoff should have been appointed as Secretary of the Treasury, don't you agree?

By the way, the plural of other is otherS. You DO know what "plural" means, don't you?

The wealthy are being taxed at the lowest rates of the past 60 years. Instead of lowering their taxes, they should be given the right to levy taxes directly on everyone else. Oh wait, they already do that with their monopolies! Think of THAT the next time you pay your mortgage, utility bill, "health" insurance....

I don't think it would make any difference. Madoff was doing exactly what we already do... He probably would have gotten even more investment from the Chinese. haha..

Not all OWS protestors live in tents in Zaccotti park, only a tiny minority. Cold weather will be an issue, but not a big one. With $500,000 in the bank and about 100k pouring in every week, a lot of momentum. Good luck to them, about time someone stood up for the 99%.

I honestly have no problem with the OWS, but what I am having problem is that they are protesting at the wrong blocks.

uh oh, why do they HATE AMERICA?


They must have limited their sample to the family of George Soros.


Quoting 
A new survey from Spectrem Group found that 68% of millionaires (those with investments of $1 million or more) support raising taxes on those with $1 million or more in income. Fully 61% of those with net worths of $5 million or more support the tax on million-plus earners.

Oh well, you know you can't take the Wall Street Journal seriously, they are so far left.
