I pass these people every day and I find them to be very irritating. I see a bunch of unemployable people running around and making a lot a noise. It is a big party to them. I don't see any of the shrinking middle class this 'protest' is supposed to represent.

How do you know they're unemployable? Do you object to the movement or deny that it is a movement? Are you just easy to annoy? Hmmmm maybe you're a Teaparty person, did the tea partiers annoy you too?

They are unemployed because they wore those outfits to the interview.

Are you kidding me? First of all they are supposed to be heard and visible to get the message through. Second, we all should be grateful to them for doing a dirty work for us, for us who can't or don't want to get hands dirty.

First of all... Even if you find these people annoying they are making a point for people like us you and me who probaly are the part of the 99%. You may not realize but the impact of this corporate grreed has been felt like all of us and the least we can do about it is be vocal about it and bring awareness about it. At least be grateful that they are taking time to protest for us rather then dismissing them as annoying.

Anyways this is not a political forum so this will be my last post on this.

Maybe it's to keep from being bored, since thay have to be there so much. I appreciate them being there. I realize this isn't the proper forum, but things have to change or soon there will be problems beyond belief. Just look at the violence in other countries, and it can happen here. The money has to be eliminated from political campaigns. Everyone should demand it, until it is done!

By their appearance. Many of them look homeless, many of them look like young kids right out of school looking for a reason to camp out and party. Many also look like hippies.

Ever hear these people being interviewed? Many of them can't even articulate what they are protesting. They can protest all day if they like, what I find irritating is they are messing up my daily commute, every single day. They are also making a total mess in that small park they camp out in and all of the local business are upset because they all want to use their facilities and bathrooms. Lastly, they are costing the taxpayers miillions in Police overtime.

The protests of a society out of economic and financial control so that the few benefit and the rest of society suffers are general and intuitive as well as specific. This kind of revolt, not only by youth, will continue to grow. Do not despise the relatively vulnerable messengers of frustration and injustice. There are echoing protests in most of the major cities of the world.

The park is owned by a Canadian company who thought of evicting the protesters and changed its mind.
Enjoy the photos.

Owned by a Canadian company, that is part of our down fall. No other countries should be allowed to own USA land.

If it wasn't an inconvience for many, then it wouldn't be effective. That's what it is, OCCUPY, space so that attention is drawn to the problems. I don't think you believe there are problems and are satisfied with the statis quo. Where have you seen these people being interviewed, I would guess FOX, do you not know Fox is a right wing organization and never neutral on anything.

Whats wrong with Young Kinds right out of school? - its their country as much as yours. I'm sure those kind would love to go and get nice paying job, instead of camping on the street and pis*ing in the jar.

Hippies? really? whats wrong with them? If it wasn't for Hippies, we probably still be fighting Vietnam war and still have Military Draft, segregation and other good things that probably would have been convenient to you.

Ever hear Tea Party and Republican Leaders being interviewed?

Really? Protesters costing taxpayers Millions?
How about Billions - that taxpayers spend for each day we stay in Middle East.
Or how about Trillion, thats how much Bank's mortgage scam cost us in bailouts.
Not to mention Trillions in intangible damages to American families.

You know what else my friend is inconvenient? Not having a job... and most of those people don't have one.

"That's what it is, Occupy" with no solutions, only blaming BIG BAD CAPITALISM and it's evil ways...the ballot box works best.....
