    OWS makes all these communist demands - what the fuck will they do if they're not met??

    Occupy the parks all winter until people start dying from frost bite? :lol:

    Let me guess you're gong to get "violent?" :lol:

    OWS has no power whatsoever.

    They're getting regular media attention and even you felt the need to discuss them. I wouldn't call that no power at all.

    Yeah, they're getting media attention - and every non-progressive is laughing at them.

    Their whole message is "give us socialism" or we will occupy this park and bully anyone who doesn't agree with our message...

    NONE of their demands will be met - a bunch of fruit flies aren't a revolution - they're a nuisance.

    They're like children stomping their feet because mommy doesn't give them a cookie.

    They are getting negative attention now. True communists - the die hards - are anti-democracy and are intolerant of "individualism". They will marginalize the average "99 percenter" by Christmas I suspect. In turn, they will become the "1 percent".Will they get violent? I hope not, but they won't be supported by the masses.

    The funny part is that they refer to themselves as individuals then portray themselves as collectivists...:lol:

    How can one be an individualist collectivist??

    That's like saying "I'm hot but I'm cold."

    Based on the hours I spent at the OWS in Los Angeles, I think you are correct. There was FAR more arguing between the occupiers than between them and those of us questioning their socialist solutions. I saw fights break out (nothing serious) and dozens of shouting matches but it was all between occupiers. My impression was that had no focus, no central message but all were advocating one form of socialism or another.

    I actually had one OWS protester tell me he was a Libertarian Socialist...:eusa_eh:

    I set him straight on what it means to be a Libertarian...he walked away in a huff.

    They won't stay out there long... staying out there, dealing with the cold, cleaning after themselves, getting food, etc... that's too much like work... they'll be back in mom's basement or their college flop houses, scarfing cheetos and playing Halo soon enough

    I'm sure Michael Moore will buy them coats or they will just charge a small business that sells coats and steal them...

    The progressive elitists will financially support this commune until the end..
