Erosion of the commons has been going on since I was a kid and annual incomes over $250,000 were taxed at 90%. The Occupy Wall Street movement is a response to the ignorant acceptance of the transfer of wealth to multinational corporations and their owners.

Inadvisable? How so? Is this your many years in law enforcement speaking or are you still suffering from rectal-cranial inversion?

And yet not a peep about our government that has managed to rack up 14 trillion in debt. Why is that? Why is there such stunning silence on the part of OWS on this??

Because this is a classic case of being "Selectively Indignant" from the left! They conveniently don't want to discuss Mr. Obama's $14 trillion (with a T) debt. They get more milage trying to besmirch the corporations who DO create tax producing jobs.

No, those people are spoiled losers who whine when things get bad instead of working harder and pushing through.

I was watching some live stream video of the mob. Someone will get on the bullhorn, say a small phrase, and then everyone repeats what they just heard them say. So much for independent thought and liberty.
At one point, someone came into the front of the crowd and made remarks that I couldn't make out, but they were something about Christianity, more than obviously it wasn't what the majority of the people were agreeing with, and his remarks almost caused a riot right there on the spot.
I'm not sure, but I don't think anyone handed out rule books about how to think and speak, but there is without a doubt a mob mentality to the whole thing.

America as a nation has more than enough history in the books that show attempts to create an effective organization, needs proper leadership. This is nothing more than organized chaos that doesn't really accomplish anything. I certainly don't want someone with a bullhorn to be the one who decides what happens to the USA.

What a tragedy for Portland. Years of unfettered colonization by the malignant Calif "progressives" is killing the very Soul of the City of Roses.

I support about every issue the protesters are making but I don't think telling us publicly what we already know is effective at all. Yea corporations are greedy, there is economic inequality and grumpy old men are in fact grumpy.

One thing Portland, and the most destructive OCCUPY City's, have in common is the complete lack of representation in City Govt for Employers who provide the Tax Base.

Hopefully, this entire mess will lead to employers relocating to rationally governed Cities where jobs and businesses are valued by the voters.

October jobs report 140,xxx new jobs created by small and mid size business. That would be the 99%
The big corporations are not producing many jobs.

In october the odds for employment were 1:200

The middle class feed the economy, they pump trillions into it and most of that spending is TAXED. The one percent does not have that kind of spending power. That is why they are taxed at a much higher rate. They may have most the wealth but they do not move the most currency. Moving currency drives the economy and provides revenue to the government. The middle class provide that moving currency. 297 million strong. Remember, capitol is the fruit of labor.

Who paid the taxes on that last car you bought? Now multiply that by 12,000,000.

Big business has been able to skip out of trillions in taxes over the past 11 years in the name of "spurring growth". The growth never materialized. These tax cuts must be repealed as well as most of the current administrations policy.
