Occupy Wall Street? For what?

Brooklyn Daily

What are we fighting for? Don’t know — don’t give a damn— next stop is Wall Street? How we have changed. We used to protest against a war that we didn’t belong in— now we’re out there marching against the uber rich for being rich. And how effective it all is — squatting in Zuccotti Park with fancy tents, iPones, iPads, and wifi gadgets, getting lattes at Starbucks and shouting grievances to high-rise skyscrapers.

My-oh-my-oh-my.

What I fail to get is why? No one has made any clear demands. Not one person has come forward and said “These are our demands; if you meet them we’ll stop protesting and get on with our lives.”

Instead, we have some vague ideas that the Occupy Wall Street protesters are annoyed that the uber rich are rich; they don’t like the fact that the banks received bail outs’; they’re not happy that there aren’t enough jobs; and apparently they want to be able to live in the park, make a mess, clean it up, and march up and down Broadway.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I just don’t get it. In fact last week, a reporter interviewed an “occupier” who’s been homeless since 1973 — but wasn’t that more than a few economic downturns ago?

I think that if you really want to get at Wall Street, just stop buying all those iPhones, iPads, Kindles, flat screen TVs, designer clothes, shoes, purses, furnishings, and, of course, coffee. For god’s sake, what’s wrong with a plain old cup of Joe in one of those blue cups that says “We’re happy to serve you.” Why does it have to be a $4 double grande, mocha chocolate latte from Starbucks?

Stop freaking buying. It isn’t necessary to have the latest, greatest anything. And if you don’t have the cash, you certainly shouldn’t use the plastic.

The banks have the money because we give it to them. It’s not only the bail outs, it’s the incredible amounts of cash that banks earn in fees and by buying and selling long, short and medium. All those ATM fees, mortgages fees, auto loans, personal loans, vacation loans, you name it and the bank will give you a loan for it — all at usurious interest rates that’s compounded daily.

Let’s face it, banks are worse than the loan sharks. But do we stop? No! We just keep on charging and paying the minimum.

The banks make it available, and we take advantage of it.

I really think we the consumers have to take a bit of responsibility for the banks having all that cash; we use credit cards for what we don’t need; we live above and beyond our means; we are the ones that desperately keep up with the Joneses, Smiths and Barneys, just so we can stockpile and cram stuff into our lives that are already over-stuffed enough.

Not for Nuthin, but the only way to stop the banks from stock piling our cash is for us to stop giving it to them. Protesting is okay for getting yourself in the papers, but the only way to get the point across is to hit them where it hurts — in the pockets.

You seem to be actively avoiding the readily available answers to your questions. It is telling hat you choose to insult the protestors rather than attempting to disapprove their assertions.

Jess from Beyond NYC says:
For most of us who live beyond the cities where these protests are being held, we tend to go by what we see on the news. To us its beginning to seem like a colossal waste of time. Go take a shower, eat a hot meal at home, and then think of another way to stick it to "the man"that produces real results. I believe these folks have heart, just not so sure that they have figured out the most effective catalyst for change. Yet.

What is the demand? Nothing short of DEMOCRACY.
What is the action? Building a society that values each human being through an exemplar community that puts a premium on DEMOCRACY.
What is the Problem? The crony capitalism of Wall Street is corrupting the democracy of the United States of America.
The demand is reasonable. The complaint is valid, and the methodology is peaceful.

John Q. from North Carolina says:
The answer is in the name, sir. Wall Street is its own closed economy. These people are "occupying" it, much like our army would occupy a foreign country. Secretary of State Clinton recently said global power would be expressed through economics, more than military. You could think of Wall Street as something of a rogue economic state, with economic power and rights, but no real responsibility to its host nation. How do we force these multinational corporations to engage in our economy, now that they have drained it?

Suzie from San Diego says:
I get what the protesters, and many Americans, are "fighting"for, however, I do not understand how these protests are honestly going to help. While there are obvious reforms and changes needed, it will take us the people making changes in our everyday lives to make them happen. If you are a protester you need to tell the people beyond the streets of lower Manhatten what they can do to make change actually happen. While speaking to those "in charge" is one way of getting heard, speaking to the common man and women might be more effective.

THANK YOU, Occupy Wall Street. Thank you for being out there FOR US - day after day, night after night , in the rain and cold and wind of a New York City autumn. Thank you OWS, for reminding us that people -ordinary working people- really do matter, and for helping open our eyes to what’s really going on in this country. Thank you OWS, for standing up for the workers, and for those looking for work, and for those that will graduate and find no work. Thank you OWS, for standing your ground, and for enduring senseless illegal beatings, while still maintaining your cool and your pride, and holding your head up high. Thank you OWS, for protecting and expanding our right to free speech and peaceable assembly. You, my friends, you are the true patriots. Thank you OWS, from all of us who can’t be there in person, from all of us who are working two and three jobs just to keep up, from all of us struggling to raise our children, or caring for our elderly, or just trying to live with some dignity.....while all the while the rich become richer and more powerful, at our expense. The 1% are running this economy. Indeed, they’re running it right into the ground - with their get rich schemes, and their tax evasions. Hell, if they don’t want to pay their fair share, then let’s call their bluff. Let them leave. ...cause they’ve already shipped their jobs overseas anyway. The REAL “mobs” are not the hardy souls of OWS - they are the public-be-damned Tea-publicans- who are blocking everything in Washington , trying to prevent Obama from doing his job. We may not be there physically with you OWS , but we are with you in spirit . You inspire and motivate us and strengthen us, and we’re damn PROUD OF YOU!

Hello, did a reality check at the occupy site Friday oct 21 2011, in the morning, took a few photos, videos, for a personal small movie I will work on, and found real people, with real concerns, some awake, some still sleeping under their tarps. A cold and windy day, I donated to the laundry fund. Watched as some protested around their perimeter, nypd closely following them. At one point a few old barricades blew over, and watched as cops stood them back up. My concern is if the occupiers of zucotti park can withstand the coming cold, blizzard winter.

Truth, liberty, justice for all, freedom, private property, privacy rights, limited government, and lending a helping hand whenever I could, kept me going and alive, but not rich. In the 1980s a news week article ran on how a half a million women could not get work and survive in NYC at that time. It does not surprise me. When there is wrong, right it.

Histories unelected self appointed cowardly tyrants

Throughout history the British empire and their bankster money changer cronies have systematically killed off their competition to create what we have today, monopolies of corporate greed, and death, that benefit only those few controlling it. People never had a chance at real elections, as they never really had real candidates by and for the people elected by and for the people. Desperate phony occupiers paid off by the same fat cats they protest and detest are sent to mock demonstrations where they are arrested and detained by their global tyrants military police forces without thought or viable outcome. The current system must run itself out before any real change. As the self appointed government continues to control every aspect of life, like maggots and leeches, with their 24/7 bombardment of biowarfare chemtrails overhead, and other toxins they give us in food, water, and air it seems dire for the human races continuance. War toys, war machines, wars, rumors of wars abound, and those contaminated du heroes sent to kill off most of iraqs population are now preparing for more death here and elsewhere. The plan is working, all civilians dead and dying so neocons can have fun with their trillions of war games until this planet is nuked and gone.
