    Occupy Wallstreet...Could this be a threat?

    So Occupy Oakland has disrupted operations in the 4th largest port in the US. Up untill hearing about this I didn't really take this 99% movement too seriously, I mean who cares that a bunch of lowlifes want money for nothing?

    On the other hand with facebook and twitter organization, we are starting to see large groups of people congregating in practically all of our major cities. Is it feasonable that after a couple of weeks of sitting around yelling and sleeping in tents someones gonna get the bright idea to storm a bank building or a wallstreet building? You know how mobs are (these people are not exactly the brightest crayons anyway) one starts it and Many will follow. So then a building gets trashed or worse, burned down, then financial institutions start getting disrupted and the market gets unstable...what then?

    Of coarse or liberal based media is fanning the fire, but what happens when the mob mentality takes over and people start acting like real fools? Could we see the beginning of local coups?

    I like Glockrocker's idea. A good stash of food and water never hurt. Here in FL, everyone should have that with all of the hurricanes we get. Being prepared means not having to fight for the left over scraps and bare shelves.

    I don't usually quote the media,for obvious reasons,but Fox News say's that the Unions are backing some of these OWS people,if thats true,they have a very sustainable monetary flow to keep this up awhile.

    Backing them up doesn't mean they are giving them money. If Shtf I can go ~4 mo before I starve. Most ppl should be prepared anyway??? I like in the City usually City ppl are less prepared then ppl who live on property.

    The way it has caught on and spread could be the beginnings of some major civil unrest such as we have seen in other parts of the world. Not surprising. Prepare for some rocky times ahead and hope for the best.

    If occupy Wall street becomes occupy Walmart, we'll have problems. Although I question the intellect of the average protester, the man behind the curtain knows what he is doing.

    All it will take to turn the occupy events into a major America changing event is one really bad indecent cough by the media and ignite the fire of racism or rebellion or both.

    I think the LE is wise to move against the camps in the late night to keep the media attention down some what.

    Much ado about nothing. I am always amazed at the many who come here to post in a fearful fashion about impending catastrophes based on minor events.

    People are rightfully dang angry about lots of things. No one from any portion of the political spectrum can with honesty say they think things are going great these days. We all differ on what steps and solutions might work, and we need to argue it all out; demonstrations are perfectly legitimate ways to do that per our right to peacefully assemble and petition for redress.

    Keep in mind that at any given moment only a tiny number of people are involved in either OWS or Tea Party activities; or in partisan politics. Most of us just get up and go to school, go to work, or look for work, take care of our families and make the best choices we can come election day.

    Our big problem to be candid is a political system not well geared for the fast paced 21st century technological society we live it. One of these days it will need a major overhaul to something more akin to a parliamentary system. Meanwhile, we have to make do with what it is. And demonstrating is part of what it is and how it works--- and was envisioned in our constitution.

    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    I think 1 Oakland style riot can ignite riots in every major city via facebook or twitter...then we got problems.

    Hop for everyones sake I hope your right...I don't know the answer so I posted it here for food for thought. I think that we live in a world with pretty great tension with current events, though.

    I disagree with pretty much everything they stand for, but you bet your a** I support their right to stand for it.
