Just doesn't seem to match what i'm told as to who goes.
I like how the focus is on welfare, but only on the poor and not the corporations who take your taxes so they can put their workforce on welfare programs.
For anyone else, unless you go check these Occupy rallies, don't say **** about who is there.
I have no problem with the true meaning of these rallies/protests. I get a lot of it. Problem is when fringe groups use it as an opportunity to use it for their far out agendas. Those are the people that are shown on tv because they are colorful, nutty, load, etc. Many wouldnt go down there because they cant relate to what they see on the tube.
