Are we going to discuss the occupy movement now? Because you weenies are facile douchbags if what you have written here reflects your observations of OWS. Particularly offensive is belittling the events at UC Davis. This is not OK under any circumstances.

Civil disobedience is NOT rioting. So, arguably, this is the north American equivalent of crushing dissent, and it doesn't work.

Courtney... In London (corporation of London, that is) the occupy movement is pointing out that the square mile is the most undemocratic place in your country. Run by banks, for banks. A tax haven like no other run by liverymen. It is ruled purely by money and it's interests in your politics and economics are unknown. To fail to mention that in your whining complaint is dangerously uninformed, to be kind.

Jay has decided to join the grumpy old men, FOX news educated peanut gallery in forcefully overlooking the stated reasons for the protest movement and focusing instead on the inevitable negative impacts. It may well be that the tactics have worn out some peoples patience, but I would say in reply that the right to assembly and protest mean something or they mean nothing at all. Choose. It's early here, jerks, sorry if I am being a little direct.
