    While I generally agree with those protesters who understand that the Privately Owned Federal Reserve is the enemy, I don't understand this one:

    I agree with you on both counts. These folks on the other hand are more about the "process", they don't really care where it ends up, they just want to have fun and cause misery for the regular folks out there.

    This is for anarchy and chaos. these people want what they have not earned and do not deserve. So long as people "feel" for them and "understand" this will go on. They are criminals and thugs bent on destroying what is for what they want.

    What is not to understand? We have it on good authoirty that OWS is educated and knowledgeable.

    On second thought...

    OWS is not a single-issue movement. One of the issues for many people is our involvement in foreign wars where we have no business. In that respect, it's a protest (currently) against President Obama more than anything else. The A&SM was displaying weapons that are used in those wars, and the protesters wanted to call attention to that issue.

    A classic case of misplaced anger. The protesters should be saying this...

    It's all about destroying. The parasitic class is no different from the barbarians who wanted to loot and burn the National Museum in Iraq.

    You've never been to the Smithsonian's Air and Space Museum - either one - have you?
