    * Donations have slowed

    * Group plans 'American Spring' protests

    By Michelle Nichols

    NEW YORK, March 9 (Reuters) - New York's Occupy Wall Street group is warning it could run out of money by the end of the month, raising questions about the future of the movement that sparked nationwide protests against economic injustice last year.

    Donations to the group have slowed six months after it set up camp in a park near Wall Street, igniting the Occupy movement across the United States.

    A report by Occupy Wall Street's accounting group for the week ended March 2 showed it had $44,828 in a general fund in addition to $90,000 set aside to bail protesters out of jail during planned "American Spring" protests.

    The report said, "At our current rate of expenditure, we will be out of money in THREE WEEKS."

    How many Occuturds does it take to change a lightbulb?

    None. Someone else should do it. They don't know how to work.

    Disgusting, unwashed, stinking, Occuturds.....

    We helped occupy Tampa with cabbage, beans, greens, and cumbers. They shit them-selves so bad they had to moved them to the west side of town to a small park where nobody goes. That's what I tell friends in other states, donate cabbage n beans...:eek:
    Their so dumb they don't even realize what's going on...

    A Guide To Protests In Middle East, North Africa : NPR

    All over the world, INCLUDING America, the masses are protesting their governments. What is the one thing we all have in common? In the past 10 years, the rich have gotten much richer and we have gotten poorer.

    So you can say what you want about the Occupy crowd or the citizens of Greece who are pissed off. Just remember we have a vote. You want to do away with Osterity programs? Do away with Social Security and Medicare so the rich can have big tax breaks? Shift the tax burden onto us and raise retirement? Sarkosi in France was booted and a liberal was put in his place. Not a corporate hack like Romney.

    The people protesting all over the world do not agree with Romney or the GOP. The Occupy crowd may not be thrilled with Obama but they know Romney is the Wallstreeter they are protesting against. And Romney despises them. Good luck running on that.

    Republicans want to destroy Government so they can rob us all blind. Gobble up all our disposable income on healthcare and gas. Pit us against Chinese, indian and mexican labor. And shift the tax burden onto us when they give rich people tax breaks. And it never trickles down.

    This election is about class warfare. Obama is FDR. And the rich did try to pull a coup on old FDR. Google the Business Plot.
