Re: 'Occupy' types

Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops -- and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.

“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.

“I had my Mac stolen -- that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”

Crafty cat burglars sneaked into the makeshift kitchen at Zuccotti Park overnight and swiped as much as $2,500 in donated greenbacks from right under the noses of volunteers who’d fallen asleep after a long day whipping up meals for the hundreds of hungry protesters, the volunteers said.

“I had umbrellas stolen, a fold-up bed I brought because my back is bad -- they took that, too!”

“I’m not getting paid, but I’m not gonna stand for it. Why people got to come here and do stupid stuff? All it does is make people not wanna come here anymore,” Wyman fumed.

At one point yesterday, Wyman and other volunteers briefly scuffled with a man who was standing near a park entrance with a pail calling out: “Donations! Donations!” -- and pocketing the cash people tossed in the bucket.

not to jump to assumptions from a pic but alot of ppl in so claifornia have no front teeth b/c of smoking meth!

yeah! i should be able to smoke meth at my janitor job and make 56k a year! yeah! so waht if other people making that money had to go through years of school wake up in the morning, shave and actually do work worth anything! i deserve money to! on my own terms and conditions .. and schedule and what I want when I want! yeah! ... and i probably still wont show up but demand my paycheck anyway.

edit - there are currently only 9 jobs avail with balt city. interestingly a crossing guard makes 9-10k a year, not sure of the hours. seems like a good job to have and still collect welfare on. im thinking about it.

recycling coordinator - 55 to 70k a feakin year . . .unbelievable.

maryland state gov has over 250 avail jobs

Maybe she should dump her "American bourgeois" socialism and accept the fact that while people may not TOTALLY act in their "self-interest", they OFTEN WILL. Besides, that laptop was made by an EVIL CORPORATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How do you counter a uneducated person's rant about people being uneducated? If this fool thinks "Occupy" is about college kids believing false things about economics, then he is truly is one of the very type he's talking about. I love the fact he brings up "unions" in the article. Just like a talking head parrot from the Republidiots. My guess is he still thinks Trickle Down theory works.


Idiots like "Froggy" let corporate media blow smoke up their ass and they sit in their recliners talking smack about the people making a stand. Here is the cold hard reality of it. Corporate America sponsors Corporate Media. They will report to you want they want to report. You think they are going to report the truth? No, they are detracting idiots just like Froggy with the smoke and mirrors that continue to haunt this country. They continue to do this with selective editing. Find one case, and make it out to the the norm. Hell, just outright lie, and we all know media like FOX lies its ass off repeatedly.

The fact that there exists no accountability at any level of our Education-Industrial Complex is perfectly clear for all to see. It seems fair to say that responsibility for this can be laid squarely at the feet of the teacher’s unions and their members who have perpetuated an economic structure in education and a curricular agenda that has been allowed to defy gravity for 40 years.
This ****tard needs to wake up and realize that knowing ****ing calculus, chemistry, or physics DOES NOT make you ANY MORE knowledgeable about economics(I know, since I have taken intro classes in all three areas). In fact, I would guess that plenty of guys who passed through those classes with flying colors are also "lefties".

Psychology is not a soft subject, and one obscure branch of it(Industrial-Organization) plays a SIGNIFICANT role in the coporate sector.

yep, the bright-lights happy workers study was the first well known case, but there's a lot of interaction and environmental effects that have been studied in relationship to work/production/effectiveness.

Re: 'Occupy' types

I posted this in one of the other political threads, but I think it belongs here. For those comparing the Tea Party movement to the Occupy movement, I would suggest there is a significant difference between the two. To be clear, I sympathize with elements of both movements - the Tea Party's theme of limited government and restoration of federalism, and the Occupy Movement's theme of corporate America's innate dysfunction and disconnect. I also disgree with both on many other issues. At the same time, from a practical analysis, I think the Tea Party has been (and will continue to be) a far more effective grass roots movement.

Unlike the the Tea Party, the Occupy movement is not actually organizing change it's just pouting about the problem. The Tea Party group - regardless of what you think of their message - organized, worked within the system, and elected numerous people who they believed would effect change. They were effective in that many politicians reflecting the "status quo" were defeated despite being backed by "the machine" (as it were). The Occupy folks have a clear and simple way to effect corporate change - buy in. Buy stocks and organize voting blocks within the corporations. It's hard, it's a lot of work, it would involve many setbacks, but there is a way for them to effectively change the structure. There is also, of course, the Tea Party route - identify an agenda, find individuals who support that agenda to run against machine politicians, and work like hell to elect those individuals -- or you can just sit in your own stench and whine. I am sure that will be effective too.

Just like the Tea Party, the Occupy movement oversimplifies both the problem & the solution and is just blatantly wrong on many things. They are every bit as stupid as those in the Tea Party whom the left likes to pillory. Of course, the dumb Tea Partiers probably don't have degrees from "I Am Smarter Than You & My Sh** Don't Stink" University so they are easier to pick on.
