He didn't fight for his planet for it to have to witness this.

Hey the 99%,
My name is the 1%, and I hate every single one of you. All of you are poor, lazy, no-lifes who spend every second of their day complaining how the corporations keep you down. You are everything bad in the world. Honestly, have any of you ever taken a shower? I mean, I guess it’s fun whining and complaining because of you made the wrong choices in life, but you all take to a whole new level. This is even worse than buying shares when they’re high.
Don’t be a stranger. Just hit me with your best shot. I’m pretty much perfect. I am a CEO of a multinational conglomerate, and a multi-millionaire. What jobs have you held, other than working as a barista? I almost pay no taxes, and have a high yielding diverse stock folder (the DOW just rallied 300 points; **** was SO cash). You are all candy-asss who should go home and get a job. Thanks for listening.

cops get a bad rep. those people are mostly there illegally. Yes, we have a right to peacefully gather, but to block up city streets requires permits. Cops are just doing their jobs. Yes, some cops are more brutal than needed, but I'm willing to bet that those cops there didn't hurt anyone. Was anyone making a scene before he showed up? The OWS has yet to actually come up with a main request or set of demands. They just hang out all day and make a mess.

--cops all standing perfectly still, not saying or doing anything--



Being a Marine doesn't make your raving right.
The only one out of line was this guy.

He was not out of line.
"You’re all walking around in riot gear like this is a war, these people don’t have guns,"
The protests are peaceful, and the presence the NYPD are giving off is like a war zone. Those are normal people exercising their right to protest. They shouldn't be brutalized for it.
