Bryan and Kait are two young people fighting for social change, risking arrest, and demanding economic equality as members of the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York City.
I agree with what they're standing for,... just not the way they're doing it. There are already places in Europe being occupied, such as this... only it's a lot more scarier and violent.... YET it hasn't done anything to change anything! And knowing how far those people have gone to protest, I must say I'm afraid of if the same thing happens too in the USA, especially since it hasn't done anything, as they are still protesting..
I find it very ignorant that people are on here commenting "damn lazy hippies". You see this girl and she goes to the protests after her college classes and that by itself shows you she isnâ€™t laid-back, even when she knows her college degree isnâ€™t worth much. These days, unless you go to the best top college and get some job that turns you into a materialistic ass, youâ€™re in the 99%. You also see this guy encouraging everyone to clean up and cleaning up himself, and you have to remember even if protesting doesn't make money protesting for a right is STILL a lot of hard work. This world is way too money oriented, and although I see why people are disagreeing with this movement because they think the 1% earned it, but the federal reserve has the power to give out money to ANYONE they want to, and that is because the government wants to control us â€“ for the worse. And what happens when they give out extra money to the 1%? They get to buy whatever they want to which leaves us working harder to buy now limited resources and less jobs! Wake up, people! Do NOT argue against something which you know little about! Wall Street stole that money!
I respect your opinion because the Occupy movement has indeed turned into somewhat of a mess. But the message is honest. It is not whining. it's for the benefit of America's economic system as a whole so people like you don't have to work pay check to pay check with such dire rewards. I admire these people for taking time out of their lives to stand up for all of us.
Pfft, the OWS movement was a joke. This is what happens when you go off to college and major in hippy crap like liberal arts and art history . . . .you struggle to find a job, so then you cry foul and join a joke movement filled with whiny people just like you. Don't get ****** because others worked hard, earned a privileged life, while you walk around with your damn signs crying, "No fair!"
*** i didnt watch just read the comments i was part of #OWS and there more to then you all think 000ai was beatin and arested and still came back because i beleived in what was going on
agree. with sarah. trying to go back to school. nothing is handed over. period. but watching to get some insight on what they are about.
When I graduate college, I plan on concentrating my efforts on getting a job-- not making excuses for why no one wants to hire me.
Kait should try going to the library instead of going to Zuccotti Park. Maybe then she could get a job and pay off her student loans like the rest of us.
this may sound a bit unbelievable, but 'effects' is a noun
It just shows you how out of touch a lot of these occupiers are... This kid claims to be from a town on the decline. Stats show that North Hampton is above average in education levels, house hold income, and just about 50% of the employed are hold "professional jobs"... not to mention the unemployment rate is barley 3% for that area... http://zipskinny.com/index.php?zip=01062
they arent whining. this may sound a bit unbelievable, but government effects daily life. maybe you should read history and our forefathers will inform you of this. its ok for the majority to "whine" to America. Thats what we were founded on.
i bet you don't have the guts to do what they are doing. once you graduate college tell me how wealthy you are. and whats with police being around when we exercise our constitutional rights?
I think they would've had a hard time not finding whinny people. I mean, look at what they're all there for.
Movements deemed destructive and dangerous, not to mention ironic or counterproductive, don't cut it anymore.
The constitution says you can protest, but it doesn't say people can camp out on property that's paid for by taxes from people on the work force. The police also never did anything unlawful or unnecessary. Also, calling the police "bone headed" is pretty ignorant since m most of them have college degrees in law and criminal justice. I agree that movements didn't happen without ruckus, but to get what you want today you have to be large but peaceful to get your point across.
I completely agree with you. They aren't changing anything and are actually making things harder for the people they're supposed to be fighting for. A college degree is also just one part of getting a job, and choosing the right degree is everything.
And not for nothing but I didn't feel a whole lot of 'compassion' about this protest from these few people, seeing as they used they're cell phones during their protesting time and even made references to Red Bull! I think these particular young people wanted to see what all the fuss was about and decided to join in for this moment in time. I'd give it another couple of weeks and they'll go back to their regular lives, making the protest a only a memory.
I think the people showcased on this episode were just craving some TV time, and maybe they even thought they could end up in a history textbook someday. It doesn't make sense to me that someone would begin a college education and then decide it wasn't worth it because "there will be no jobs", so then decides it would be a better life choice to walk NYC for some dumbass protest that will more than likely get them nowhere. How about you choose a college major that is guaranteed to profit you?
