The original intent of the occupy movement was not bad, but they quickly lost focus. And now the leaders/spokespeople come across as illiterate at best, total fools at worst, so they will never gain any backing as they have no credibility.

My humble opinion mind you.

Some say that they are backed by Obama or his kind. He/they are all for this "Fairness" stuff and that's what the Occupy people are pushing. I sometimes wonder if the interviewing reporter searches for the dumbest sounding person in the group or are they really ALL that way.

I've heard interviews with them requesting ridiculous things. This video says that all they want is prosperity. I'm OK with that. But our current Government is going in the opposite direction from prosperity toward dependency. In that respect, I agree with them. Big business (money) controls the Government. If I had anything to do with it, I'd say no more lobbyist. If any congressman or senator was found to take a "gift" (payoff) from anyone, they would be terminated. Corporations can still make requests to congress via email or letter just like you and I can. But no more lunches, vacations, golf resorts. And....whatever laws congress passes, they have to abide by just like you and me. No more of this "Do as I say, not as I do" BS. No one is exempt.
The occupy movement is fine with me. People should be able to assemble and state their views. Unfortunately this "group" has never been able to clearly state their message. It's way to broad. I believe this movement is just an symptom of peoples frustration with the poor economics they find themselves in and find themselves helpless to change their situation. I don't believe the view that all these people have a chip on their shoulder and feel they are owed something by society. Maybe they are reacting to the fact that big business owns the government and they hold all the cards. Our leaders are owned by big money and right now there is very little the masses can do about it under the current environment.

Get the big money out of politics and make the leaders subject to the same rules they set for all of us. I have said this before and have seen it first hand when I worked as an IT person on the hill. That great dome constructed by the people has been taken over by corruption and money.

Unlike the Tea Party I don't believe any one group or person is behind them. They are just not organized enough or have their act together to be backed by any organized group.

Of course the media is looking for the most sensational sound bite to put on the air.

I have no problem with your view Jeff, and can understand where you are coming from.

They needed help from the Hippies of the 60's ....
