You have fought all the wars. You have worked for all the bosses. You have wandered over all the countries. Have you harvested the fruits of your labors, the price of your victories? Does the past comfort you? Does the present smile on you? Does the future promise you anything? Have you found a piece of land where you can live like a human being and die like a human being? On these questions, on this argument, and on this theme, the struggle for existence, the people will speak. Join us.

 

We speak as one. All of our decisions, from our choice to march on Wall Street to our decision to continue occupying Liberty Square, were decided through a consensus based process by the group, for the group.

Don't you think they'd be better off trying to get a job?

Unemployable

:tup: You people sound like my father way back in the day. Damm hippie protesters, why don't they cut their hair and get a job .

 

While I don't believe in everything they want, I do :wacko: the effort. It's good to see this generation put down the latte, disconnect the Ipod and actually care about something.

I blame that damn Fox. In my day we had three networks and if something good wasn't on, we drank homemade wine and played Clue.

I suggest that everyone go out and buy a black toilet and install bright lights in your bathroom. The next time you are pooping, lift up your nutsack and look down into the water - you will see a mirror image of your butthole pooping :wacko:

which maybe goes to show that your father knew a helluva lot more than you did "way back in the day". :wacko:

aw cmon. The hippies refusing to cut their hair, get a job or even bathe was MUCH better; if they had, the Grateful Dead would've never made it.

 

Let the kids play their little game pretending to be growed up and imagining anyone cares what they say. Goodness knows some of y'all do it enough. :wacko:

It's always 4:20 somewhere.

Very few areas have time zone differences in less than 1-hour increments. :wacko:

Funny I haven't seen anything about this on CNN...

 

20,000 people according to this article protesting against Wall Street is just not newsworthy. A couple hundred or so tea partiers with a hundrerd port-a-potties are angry that they have to pay taxes and there's a black man in the White House, however, is national news.

 

Liberal Media! :wacko::mouth::tup:
