    The Occupy movement is a mish-mash of a lot of groups. Maybe this introduction of vets into the movement will not only give it the support they crave, but the organization, focus and leadership they so desperately need. Let's hope that also means the riff-raff and knuckleheads will be pushed to the fringe where they belong.

    Thank goodness it wasn't a Justin Bieber look-alike that was injured.
    Think of the implications.

    I'm sure all of these "vets" are legitimate. Anybody can buy a used military uniform and fatigues. Just another steaming pile of crap from the leftists.

    How about the anarchists, the losers, the left wing shills, and the faux vets make themselves USEFUL and volunteer to help people who are LEGITIMATELY in need of help............the families who have lost their homes, have nowhere to live, have no food, and are TRULY desperate.

    "The 99%" is a MYTH, unless "the 99%" refers to the percentage of taxpayers (i.e. people who have JOBS) who have been SCREWED OVER by the federal government and state governments via excessive taxes, levys, and regulations.

    A lot of Regular people get caught up in it, and have. But most of them don't hang around long. Once they get a good look at just who is at the core of the groups driving the whole Movement.
