    Occupy Irrelevance: Is Movement Already Fizzling Out? - Investors.com

    I've wondered for a week or so "What are they even accomplishing"?

    I mean, they are "occupying" some space. So the f**k what? WHAT are they gonna change? Wall Street moved on anyway. In fact, the markets are booming right now!! Black Friday was a record day for sales. The capitalist machine, despite being down, is cranking right along WITHOUT them. And that is by THEIR own decision not to take part.

    Now the movement is dying. Hundreds if not thousands of "occupiers" will find even more difficulty getting a job now that they have an arrest on their rap sheet. And for what? For nothing. Nothing changed.

    The same reality of life exists: Get an education in college, but you will STILL be starting at the bottom, at entry level, probably in a field or career you didn't wanna be in, or doing a job you simply hate showing up to. But... tens of millions of Americans go to work everyday at jobs they wish they didn't have to go into. They earn money to pay for homes, cars, kids, vacations. Work a while. Be off a while. Eat, sleep, live, love, repeat. And the machine keeps churning....with or without the "occupiers".

    Oh yeah, TIME magazine said it, so it must be true right?

    I used to wonder why you fucking morons refused to get a job. Now I know...one minute in an interview, and no one would hire any of you.

    You do know...Dems had FULL control, 3 out of 3, from 1-20-2009 until 1-20-2011 and have NOTHING to show for it except a crippling, unConstitutional healthcare bill that most people despise. Yet, on 1-20-2010, when the Dems power changes from 3/3 to 2/3 (still majority), all of a sudden they blame the 1/3 in power.

    Math wasn't you folks' strong point, was it?

    Doesn't matter that the Dems are rightly blaming the GOP and the Teabaggers for the present gridlock on getting this nation back to work. What is game changing is that a majority of the independents also blame you fellows.

    Keeping millions out of work to put one man out of a job will echo this coming year.

    Like any disorganized entity OWS is succumbing to entropy.

    It was inevitable.

    That would be why Obama has a worse standing right now then ANY President at this point in their Presidency?

    What independents learned was that with Dems in charge completely nothing but illegal crap got done.

    The OWS Flea Party protesters never had a coherent agenda or focus.

    It turned out to be just a nation wide frat party for losers and slackers. :cuckoo:
