OWS Protesters Calling For 3-Course Meal Of Demonstrations Thursday Throughout NYC

'Day Of Action' Will Involve 'Good-Sized' Numbers, Impacting All 5 Boroughs

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s not over yet. In fact, it may be just beginning.

New York City leaders are warning that thousands of protesters could converge on Manhattan on Thursday. The NYPD is now getting ready for the next stage of “Occupy Wall Street” protests, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer.

It may have looked peaceful at Zuccotti Park during what was a soggy Wednesday afternoon, but city officials are sounding alarm about Thursday, warning of mass disruptions in all five boroughs.

And it may not be pretty.

“We are certainly anticipating tens of thousands of people protesting, aimed at significant disruptions of the lives of the people of this city,” Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson said.

It was an unusual impromptu press conference called by City Hall to share intelligence about an international “day of action” by Occupy Wall Street on the movement’s two-month anniversary. Deputy Mayors Cass Holloway and Wolfson said they expect it to be big, but they said the NYPD is ready.

“Make no mistake, public safety is first and foremost, and we have to ensure that the city can run. People need to drive down the streets and use essential services,” Holloway said.

“Any time you have a situation in which you are anticipating tens of thousands of people protesting on a massive scale, you take it seriously and our forces will be deployed accordingly,” Wolfson added.

Already angry over their eviction from Zuccotti Park, the protesters are planning breakfast, lunch, and dinner protests on Thursday:

The breakfast plan is to “shut down” Wall Street. It’s all expected to start with a rally in Liberty Square starting at 7 a.m. to “put an end to Wall Street’s reign of terror.”

“We’re going to march on Wall Street and shut down the New York Stock Exchange,” protester Patrick Bruner told CBS 2’s Sean Hennessey on Wednesday night.

“We do hope to stop people getting to work. We do hope to stop the stock exchange from functioning, but we don’t hope to do it in a crazy wild-eyed way,” added Austin Guest.

The lunch menu will feature protesters looking to “occupy” the subways in all five boroughs. They plan on gathering at 16 subways stations to take their message to the trains.

And dinner is set up as a takeover of Foley Square, followed by a march to the Brooklyn Bridge.

Bill Dobbs is one of the organizers.

“Tomorrow is going to be a day of action around the city,” Dobbs said. “I’m looking forward to going after wall street and also galvanizing public support and awareness of what we’re about.”

The organizers and those at Zuccotti Park on Wednesday offered few details of what they’re going to do, but when Kramer asked Dobbs how many he was expecting, he was only partially coy.

“I think there will be good-sized numbers tomorrow,” he said. “I think the message is really about who gets what in this country. We are the 99 percent. Who gets the safety net? And who gets thrown under the bus?”

To be sure, there is lingering resentment about Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s decision to evict Occupy Wall Street, but it’s unclear if that anger will be on display Thursday.

“Awful, unconscionable, the mayor and police commissioner do that for a long while. Like other people in power, they think if they get rid of the protesters, they will also get rid of the cause,” Dobbs said.

City officials have refused to say how close they will let the protesters get to their main targets, but they insisted they’re ready for anything.

The OWS website says similar days of action are also planned at Occupy sites around the country and around the world.

After Tuesday’s raid of Zuccotti Park that cleared it of tents, sleeping bags and tarps, protesters marched to Foley and Duarte Square where they distributed a poster about Thursday’s day of action.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell reports

City leaders who were against the raid at Zuccotti are also set to participate.

While the official movement is planning its day of action, other individuals seem to be making plans of their own.

In a video posted on YouTube after protesters were evicted from Zuccotti Park, a demonstrator in the crowd says “On the 17th, we’re going to burn New York City to the ground.”

Warning: Graphic Language – Watch the video below:

Later in the video, he then goes on to say “No more talking. They’ve got guns, we’ve got bottles. They’ve got bricks, we’ve got rocks…in a few days you’re going to see what a Molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s.”

The official movement is calling for only non-violent action during its marches and rallies on Thursday.

What do you think about the OWS day of action? Sound off below in our comments section…

  • Eric

    I’d be all in support of these folks if they were occupying the White House, Congress, the FED, or the Treasury Department. They can’t even identify the enemy, much less come up with a plan to do anything about it.

    • Steve

      I think the enemy is everyone you just listed. The PEOPLE WE PUT INTO THE GOVERNMENT. (The only part of a democracy we have left is voting). These people want to be heard and have a good cause. They are challenging the system that is broken and we are forced to adhere to day to day. The enemy is the CEO’s of the big business that have three multimillion dollar homes, seven different ferrari’s, and take a vacation each week. This country was built on the hard working private business and big business has taken over the economy and government. The enemy is these people who make billions each year, pay employees minimum wage and live in the Hamptons while their employees live in the slums of Newark just trying to make a living. I am a graduate student and am going to be around 60,000 in debt when I’m done with a school counseling program. When I obtain a job, I will be put in a hole of debt before I can even start my life. Even the schools are in on it. I completely agree with them, who wants to work just to make money for someone else? Let’s grow a pair and challenge the way we live, because it isn’t right!! All men are created equal… if you have the money to back yourself up!!

    • Esteban

      Haven’t you asked yourself why they aren’t there? This movement is nothing more than a way to whip up the Democratic base against the evil rich republicans because Obama can’t run on his record.

      Shift blame, whip up a frenzy on the useful idiots, use frenzy to motivate base.

      It’s a 1930’s German election stratagem

    • Donald Naff

      Frankly, I think that blaming government for the state of the financial gap and condition of the current financial situation in our country would be not only a waste of time but is exactly what the “ultra-haves” want people to do so that they can keep on doing things as usual.

      • Larry

        That is because you are either ignorant or misinformed. The government laid the legal foundation for the corporations to do what they have done while allowing the politicians to line their pockets with profit. The fox is guarding the chicken coop!

      • concernedgranny

        The financial institutions are only abiding by the laws that the government has put in place. In addition to that, this government has recklessly spent us into our present financial crisis…..so yes, these protesters should be protesting at the WH and the house of Pelosi John Kerry, etc. They are so screwed up, they can’t identity their enemy.

    • Fanny Forbes Franklen

      Occupy the FED and Congress that are at the core of the problem, the root.

      Congress allows a private banking cartel to print money out of nothing and lend it back at interest. Pure evil that needs to be eradicated.

      End the Fed that End the Wars that Ends the Police State.

      Youthful, useful idiots, sold on false promises of hope by socialist/communist manipulators and deceivers (like our own president Obama). But the promise of “change” can be believed if the revolution is successful.

      Occubaggers, Occubeggars, Losers, Morons, Zombies, Crybabies, Dirtbags, Timewasters, All of them totally PATHETIC. Shame on you! Each and everyone of you are a COMPLETE AND TOTAL DISGRACE!!!!

    • LTCB

      Their comments about firebombing Macy’s are why there’s a second amendment people. Police are a convenience and not a necessity when the populace is well armed. Besides, when was the last time you called the police for assistance of any kind and how long did you have to wait? Think that’s enough time for a crazy to do you permanent harm? If it is, then the only answer is a well armed populace.

      • michaelfury
      • Nat

        I suggest the city use fire hoses to protect itself.

      • rocko

        Are you for real, this is anarchy not a difference of opinion. These jerks are anti-American. Where are they getting the money to finance this destruction. Have you thought about that. I would hope there will be enough police and good citizens to help get these dregs off the streets.

        • Susan

          How are they anti American? They are protesting the rampant oligarchy we have lived under since the Gilded Age. The government is NOT a democracy. Read your history books, stupid.

          • chris

            It is a republic, read a real history book

          • ditchdigger2

            Are you living with the homeless, or commenting from some taxpayer funded,subsidised source. Before you change it, you better read history, it’s ugly.

        • PATSNYC

          These people are terrorists. The communist who made the threats to burn down the city and fire bomb macys hs been arrested and charged with terrorism.
          I live and work in NYC. Every downtown business owner and resident is afraid to walk down the streets. When the NY Sanitation Department cleaned up the pig pen where these disgusting people were staying they found hypodermic needles and condoms thrown all over the place. These disgusting people pissed and craped wherever they wanted. Residential doorways were blocked by their feces. These disgusting people would all go to one residential building and crap in front of the entrance way. Now these terrorists are going to terrorize the commuters? They should all rot in hell.

        • FreeUlysses

          Maybe this is where they are getting their money, plus the mass of stupid liberals in the northeast. Filmed right after the original Day of Rage, that started the Occupy protests.

        • ditchdigger2

          Its financed by the U.S. taxpayer, Alcorn, and it’s splinter groups, community organizers, and the new DEMOCRATIC regime.

        • Sparky

          If someone does bring a molotov and lights it, they should be shot on sight.That is terrorism and we need to make sure that they know it won’t be tolerated

        • dithcdigger2

          Then hand a copy of the report to your servivors.

      • Badwhisky

        A wlee armed society is a polite society

      • southernmarine25

        there is also a limitation on that freedom of speech where people can GET arrested for verbally threatening someone even if they don’t actually intend on doing it. This demonstrator should be arrested for making terrorist threats because all it takes is ONE firebrand to shift the whole movement from passive to AGGRESSIVE. He or she may not actually represent the whole movement’s goals but that one person creating chaos can lead to the multitudes following them. Even celebrations for professional sport teams never MEAN to be violent, but rarely does that stop them from destroying public property. A few well armed citizens taking matters in their own hands would turn that into a war in the streets.

        • Steve

          he was arrested last night! seems like he has a nice track record and was a couple days ago swooped up for punching a cop!! NYPD I know would have had this guy barely able to walk after punching one of their own!!

        • gordon Hochstedler

          Take down Wall Street and you take down the older people retirement systems. Get smart!!! Only dumd assed communists should think about taking down WALL street. THere goes the best country in the world. However if you know the Bible you our Lord is bringing a new KINGDOW FAR GREATER THAN USA praise God….

              It exists because religion was taken out of it. http://i.imgur.com/XjBGl.jpg You can’t make the poor rich, by making the rich poor. Abraham L.

            • Donald Naff

              Actuallky, if more folks lived their religions, instead of using them as some sort of bludgeon, the current fiinancial situation wouldn’t exist. No one trully understanding God’s love and the concept of loving one’s neighbor as yoursefl believes that such a gap between the have-nots and the ultra-haves is morally acceptable.

            • ditchdigger2

              This is the same thing that is sweeping the middle east, same community organizers, the middle east is about religion, that is what it is about.

              • John

                Sam andDitchdigger2, there is a difference between religion and worshiping/praising God. Religion is the traditions created by Man, we Are called upon by God to worship him, that’s what we were created for in the first place. God said “2Ch 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” I think we could use his help right about now, but our country is turning in the opposite direction… so what do you think the results will be?

          I see…Shoot anything that scares you.

      • Ltpar

        Threats to firebomb a building with people inside. Seems to me that that could be considered a “Terrorist Threat” and that clown be taken off the streets and put where other terrorists never see the light of day. Of course with Obama’s people being behind all this protest stuff, not much chance of federal law enforcement becoming involved? Before it is all over and done with, Democrats will regreat the snowball of crappola they started rolling to distract the public from the real issue at hand…….Obama’s inability to get the job done.

        • RuRu

          You are so right. This crowd is really getting scary and I am sure they will do harm. The Liberals are backing this mess!!

          • HughGKnutts

            That “mess” *are* liberals. These deadbeats are the core of the democrat party. It’s ironic that many in the media tried to portray the Tea Party in the very light these deadbeats conduct themselves, yet those same media talking heads will not report the destruction, racism, murders, sexual assaults and typical behavior of these societal outcasts.

        • USA7

          democrats can not regret. thats takes a brain

          • Jeremy

            No just a heart, which is also something liberals lack. They are selfish and petty in the extreme.

          • ditchdigger2

            I was a democrate in the 60s, also USMC. This administration would be a foreign enemy to John Kennedy, even Johnson, and Martin L. King. These opportunis are modern day Bolsheviks.

      • PATSNYC

        The second amendment does not protect people from making threats that will hurt people. The US Supreme Court has specifically rejected the freedom of speech argument when a person or persons make “statements” that will cause harm. Example, there is no freedom of speech protection if a person yells fire in a croweded theater when there is no fire.
        Well the same nitwits who would yell fire or threaten to start a fire in Macy’s are NOT protected by the second amendment. In fact, their acts are criminal. Period. But that is status quo for these street poopers.

        • PATSNYC

          Correction. First Amendment. Joke all you want, but there is NO, NONE, ZERO Constitutional protections that permit the street poopers terrorist acts. Sorry libatards.

        • Mike

          Let me guess… you went to a government school. 2nd amendment dip wad!

            • PATSNYC

              I guess that means it is OK for flea infested streep pooper liba-mobs to throw explosive devices into Macys. I am glad you clarified that.

                But not burn down New York City. Not to mention all the crime that has been happening in Zuccoti Park. They’re a public disturbance, and the people are sick of them.

              • Pitbullll

                Indeed, there is nothing to debate. Rights to free assembly/protest exist but do not supersede existing laws protecting the rights of others. Protesters must obtain permits to the premises, vacate when required and clean up after themselves. Occupiers have acted with complete disregard for the law and endangered and infringed upon the rights of others; which renders them criminally culpable and therefore, subject to arrest. Period. Nothing to debate.

    • ubuibi

      Well, Sean, this comment proves how intellectually incompetent you are, please do arm the FLEA party, because as you said the Tea Party ALREADY is armed. Just remember that we won’t be like the citizens of England who had no way to defend themselves……we are just waiting for you FLEA bags to just start the trouble then we will rid the country of drug addicted, diseased, FLEAS like you!!!

            And for your info, I’m a woman, so chew on that!!! But I’m sure I’m more of a “REAL” man than you could ever be!!

      • PATSNYC

        Which is why the OWS mob is called fleabaggers. BTW, it sure is cold and rainy here in NYC. How the street poopers get nice and wet and cold while Princess Nance and Michale Moore sleep warm and cozy in their mansions.

    • Dave Thrush

      @FatSean That’s because the Tea Party was orderly and non violent. One arrest in two and a half years compared to 3,000 for OWS in 2 months. fully 1/3 of ows polled said they would resort to violence. Now it’s playing out.

    • Brian

      You can’t arm the occupiers. Drug users and felons are allowed to possess firearms.

      • Brian

        Whoops, mistyped there. they *can’t* own weapons


      There were no rapes at ANY TP Rally. There were never ANY murders at ANY TP rally. There were NEVER ANY TB outbreaks at ANY TP rally. There were never any STD clinnics at any TP rally. There was never ANY, street pooping at ANY TP rally. TP rallys always cleaned up the rally area and NEVER left, garbage behind. There were never any shootings at ANY TP rally. There was never any fires or property damage at ANY TP rally. There was NEVER ANY arrests at ANY TP rally. The ONLY guns the libatard media claimed was at a TP rally was held by a BLACK TP member at a SECOND AMENDMENT event;. All this disgusting stuff is the poster child of libatard events. Like Princess Nancy said “It’s Fresh”.

        • John Malverne

          Exactly. They feel free to destroy property, disturb the peace and break any and all laws because they know that the worst that can happen to them is to get their wish: a prison stay where everything is free and they don’t have to work.

          But if they got it as good as they give it, I guarantee that’d change the situation in a hurry.

          • Snitch-in-Time

            The entire #OWS movement is motivated by lust, hate, envy and greed. Lust for power that has not been obtained through legitimate service, hatred of those who have succeeded in life, envy of anyone who has a nickel more than they themselves, and grasping greed for that which men better than themselves have produced. #OWS is not evil, it is so far beyond evil that it is into the realm of wickedness and depravity. Terroristic threats (and that is what they are) to firebomb a department store is not a courageous act of civil resistance, it is terrorism so cowardly, craven, and despicable that it would embarrass the most feckless Palestinian terrorist.

            • LTC_Ray_Burke

              You covered OWS motivationj quite well. I really had no idea that such a large segment of our society had degenerated to such an extent. I fear the worst is yet to come. Where do we run to?

You are the idiot and are either a mommies or college boy or a communist moocher. We were not subsized by union dues paid by working people and we were against the government whether republican or democrat(Nixon, Johnson) We did not mooch food off of people or caused events like farmers markets to help the homeless from taking place because you rich boy mooches occupied their space like in Boston.You are a moron and a media matters tool, at least tea baggers bathe and don’t pass on contagious diseases you moron.

              When OWS was declared an “occupation” rather than a “protest” it moved outside of the protections offered by the First Amendment. You have the right to peacably assemble and petition the government for redress of grevience, but you do not have the right to squat upon private or public property to threaten other men’s lives and demand confiscation of their substance. That has another name: Insurrection. Under Article 1, Section 8, Paragraph 16, Congress can summon forth the militia to SUPPRESS INSURRECTION, repel invasions, and execute the laws of the Union. (Emphasis added for the benefit if liberal knuckleheads.) Governors, County Sheriffs, and Mayors have similar powers. What was done to #OWS yesterday was proper, lawful, moral, just, righteous, decent, and fully consistent with the time honored understanding of American ordered Liberty. Any questions?

                We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

          • Steve Menlo

            Uh, the bailouts were given by the Obama administration and congress. So why aren’t you protesting them? Because you are stupid. Your anger is misdirected, but you know that. You are a communist, socialist. You don’t really care about what is happening on Wall Street because you don’t understand it. Stocks are monetary interest in a business. Corporations are comprised of people trying to make a buck, and it’s called Capitalism. You want to take their earned money and spread it around, hopefully to yourself. That is called theft.

            • Scott Keller

              Actually, no. The bailouts were given by the foreign bankers who agreed to buy more treasuries so that the US government could borrow more non-sovereign money (rather than print their own like they’re supposed to do). Many of the protesters are protesting this debt mentality. They’re not the ones causing/implementing the violence though.

              Also, corporations are comprised mostly of people chasing a paycheck while helping a smaller group of people chase profits which essentially means they’re charging more than whatever their product or service is worth so that an even smaller group of people who have more money can sit on their asses on their yachts and collect their investment returns. It’s called anti-humanitarianism and primitive by futuristic standards. Maybe some people want to spread the wealth, but not me. I just want to take away the keys and give them to someone who can stop the insanity. A free market isn’t truly free unless non-profits and alternative model businesses have their hands untied.

              The communism and socialism you refer to really amount to statism, but either way, neither capitalism nor socialism nor communism will ever work well as long as the monetary system they operate on works against the people and against human advancement rather than for them. The wealthy of course, in all of these systems, believe that their system works well, but the evidence of extreme and increasing poverty, hunger, and unsustainable practices shows very well that they don’t work well at all. Spreading the wealth around isn’t the answer. A new paradigm is.

              • FreeUlysses

                You do realize tha corporations don’t get to keep profits and stuff it into their pockets, don’t you? Profits go to shareholders, or to contractual obligations of bonuses, etc. Those profits fund retirement accounts for grandmas coast to coast. Those profits fund new R&D so you can get your precious electric car or iPhone4S. Every organization takes a cut, it’s just called profits in the private sector. But the labor unions get their ‘profit’ in terms of dues. They get them year in, year out, regardless of whether conditions are good or bad. You could have the most awesome CEO and managers in the world, but the union still takes your dues, that’s their ‘profit’, and the govt agencies get theirs in the form of larger budgets. A manager in a govt agency can’t get a profit, so he says he needs more staff, the larger his organization, the higher his salary, it’s mandated. Every single govt manager knows that if he wants to make more money, just find ways to grow the size of his organization. Multiple that by the hundreds of thousands of govt employees, and you’ll see why it will take strong leadership to slow govt growth.

                • John Sabotta

                  Yes. You’ll note there no reason why people like the protestors can’t organize, form competing co-operative businesses, where every employee owns part of the business, has an equal voice in every decision and no one is paid more than anyone else. There’s nothing stopping them from doing this – there have been co-op’s in the past, a few actually succeeding in competing on the free market. But somehow, this hardly every happens, does it? Why live your supposed ideals when you can call for taking over what the “evil” capitalists already built? What is means is that the real “ideals” of this wretched movement are envy, irrational hatred and arrogant entitlement.

              OWS is a bunch of freeloaders. That is demonstrated by the TWO MONTH PROTEST. No working person can take two months off from their job for two months and still have a job. Please explain to me how they’re not uninformed. They’re protesting Wall Street for receiving a bail out, but conveniently not protesting the Government for giving them the bailout. Perhaps you could start there as to why the OWS is not “uninformed.” The USA goes on “stealing money from the 99%.” 47% of people pay NOTHING in taxes and most of those people get a tax refund. Who’s the one “stealing” anything? The wealthy make money because they know how to make money. Take a look at the retail stores this holiday season for the perfume lines of all the celebrities, and see how well they sell. The “”99%” will gobble them up left and right because they want to experience whatever it is they see getting from these products. That’s how the “1%” get wealthy. You are foolish to think otherwise. I could rattle off a thousand other ways that people make money based on the decisions of the “99%.” Your problem and the problem of everyone in the “99%” of which I within the demographic but not a member, is that you have made poor decisions and you want someone else to make up for it.

              Oh and from someone who has spent a great deal of time studying foreign policy in college, the US needs to be the worlds police force more than it doesn’t. Someone who spent their entire argument arguing on behalf of the “little guy” seems to know so little about the little guy. If we don’t stand up for them who will? Do yourself a favor stop blaming the US and go get a real world perspective.

          Hooray, an 8.3% ROI over the past 3 years.

          Oh, and your thanksgiving dinner? It’ll cost 13% more due to inflation compared to just last year.

          So you have $100, you gain 8% over 3 years from gains making it $108, and with the total inflation costs, you can buy what cost $80 three years ago.

          This is a good deal; well clearly I’m an idiot and you can take advantage of me. Give me all your money, I’ll give you 80% of it back TODAY. imagine if you didn’t have to wait three years to get this benefit; it’d be great.

          Your purchasing power will be 80% of what it is NOW without having to wait 3 years… I’ll be expecting your call soon.

          and if anyone else wants in on this; I’ll open this offer up to anyone who wants to give me 20% of their investments. But this is a limited time offer, so hurry now to reduce your purchasing power.

Just proves to me that the core of the occupy movement is just partison, radical puppet masters pulling the strings of the children that have come along for the ride.

        • Harold Lowe

        • Beth Dennis

          My 401k never recovered from 2008, because the big money market company that my company went with is terrible – when the market goes down, the funds go down as much as the market, but when the market goes up, the funds go up only half as much. The funds lost a lot of money last year even though the market went up.

          • SerfCityHereWeCome

            That’s all that mutual funds ever do is lose money, avoiding all the gains and maximizing all the losses. Losses which you still pay taxes on due to huge distributions every year. Problem is, most people don’t live long enough for the basis cost reduction to undo the damage. The 2nd worst investment vehicle in the history of the universe, after Social Security.

      • Bill Lee

        Express your point of view but do not stayed camped out in public places. You should state your case and move on. Violence means you want to force your point of view on everyone. Do I have a right to disagree with the OWS? Yes I do. So go to work and shut up and lobby and or start a legal group. But violence is wrong!

          And your Turkey dinner this year? Only 13% more than last year due to inflation, add in the two years before that a bit more… so only a total of say 20% inflation over your 3 year period.

          But you made a 4% profit in the market, so every dollar losing 20% of it’s value doesn’t matter… you’re sitting on fat cash now.

          I mean you can easily buy 80-85% of what you could have bought 3 years ago; that’s awesome.

          Heck, I’ll do you one better… but just because I like you that much. you give me all your money, I’ll give you 85% of it back and you’ll have the same massive benefit in purchasing power IMMEDIATELY.

          That’s how nice I am. you won’t have to wait another 3 years to get that benefit; you can have another adjustment setting you at 85% of your current purchasing power TODAY!

          • FreeUlysses

            ertdfg your argument is a straw man, I don’t even need to refute your figures. If I made 8.3% in the market, then I did well. They MADE me money.

            Now, if it buys more or less due to inflation, that is a different issue, with different causes, but certainly the brokers on Wall St did not wave a magic wand to cause inflation so they can giggle at my misery. The bottom line is, if you were in the DOW during these “oh the sky is falling its so bad” market years, you could make money. And being in the market is a risk anyway, says so on every disclosure when you set up trading accounts.

          • Mikey

            Inlfation has NOTHING to do with Wall Street. This is caused by our government printing money and spending far more than they take in each year. You want to protest this? Then I suggest you go to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington D.C.

      • John Czach

        My mutual funds are comfortably higher than the bottom of the crash. If you had any savings yourself and/or any knowledge of such things, you’d be more or less OK or even too. But you certainly have a valid point, in that I would be better off taking financial advice from OWS people.

      • average joe

        markets have gone up and down throughout history. the market will go up again and surpass where it was at and at some point it will go back down. no body picked anybodys pocket its just the market which apparently you don’t understand and thats ok. i am part of what you call the 99% and no you and your movement do not represent me. stop being envious of those you call greedy. instead of camping out and waving your signs and chanting your slogans volunteer at a soup kitchen or join the peace corp if you really want to make a difference. have a nice day….

        • Mr. Kelly

          You are exactly right. The left loves to point at something extremely common and blame it on who ever they don’t like. Recessions happen every 4-6 years. Period. We’ve never gone through a 12 year period without two recessions. Even Clinton had one during his term, then left Bush a recession. I don’t blame him, it’s natural cycle. Then Bush got us out of it, then the next one came. And he got us out of that. Then at the end of his presidency, we went into another. Like clock work, nothing new. I don’t blame Bush. Then Obama took over, and he is doing what Carter and FDR did. More government. Which we know from history always makes recessions worse and last longer. But that’s beside the point. It’s like lefties think recessions are rare and because some republican didn’t redistribute enough income while in office.
          You are right, the market will go back up again. This time it’s just going to take longer than normal because Obama is doing what Carter and FDR did. But it will go back up. Then down, then up, then down.

          • steve

            the economy will never recover, this is not a recession, look at whats really happening, jobs will never come back as technology will replace them, humanity is evolving.

            • Bryan

              That argument has been made since the beginning of this country. Its a stupid argument. Mankind has always been replaced by machines and will continue to do so. This isn’t an “Internet age” thing its been the case since tools were invented.

        actually mine is fone too – up over 8% – this year – seems like u hate being a loser :-)

      • BTaylor

        The economy has been going through a natural cycle for many decades, and anyone who couldn’t see in late 2007 that we were due for another perfectly predictable downturn wasn’t paying attention.

        What’s different about THIS downturn is that the government has taken a number of indefensible actions such as bailouts, stimulus programs and “quantitative easing”, along with creating a hostile business atmosphere, that have made it deeper, longer, and have delayed the natural recovery that would have occurred if not for these actions.

        • Joy Brown

          The Congress in Washington DC should get off their azz and draft Legislation to stop this Anarckey PERIOD. Anyone with a brain knows this is a UNION and OBAMA stunt. The Union bused 1000 UNION Nurses into DC to protest. This is not a cause, this is Obama’s way of calling MARTIAL LAW because he knows America will not VOTE for him again. If Congress doesn’t do something you will have this dumb USURPER as President for life. Time to raise Hell on Congress.

        • elizabethrc

          You’re apparently not aware, Nora, that since Obama has been in office, the Republican House has passed 22 bills while the Democratic Senate has not even passed a budget in over 900 days.

          I think you need to start reading and educate yourself about what’s really going on.

          Oh, and on the Super Committee (you DO know what that is, don’t you?), the Republicans have come up with plans and the Democrats have not. They are walking away from the table because they and Obama don’t want it to succeed in this election year because they clearly want to blame Republicans for failures in Coingress in order to help Obama’s re-election (which will be yet another failure for this “messiah of us all”.

        • ertdfg

          Explain to a Republican, how exactly is it “there fault”? 2006-2010 Republicans were a minority in both the House and Senate; so every law, bill, budget, and resolution in Congress was passed by Democrats.

          Is there ever a point at which anything anywhere might be the Democrat’s fault? Or is even the 2008-2010 period when Democrats had the House, Senate, Presidency, and a Filibuster-proof majority in the Senate still blamed on Republicans?

          I can see you claiming it’s “there fault”.. but I’m not sure you’ve got much in the way of valid reasoning there (or is that “their”? “they’re”?)

      • David

        I agree Lone Lowrey. Most of the 1 % stir the economy by creating jobs. I don’t think it’s fair to attack the wealthy just because their wealthy. Most seem to contribute to society than live off of it and laugh at the 99 %. Just because they built an empire from capitalism through sweat and hard work, doesn’t mean that we can redistribute their wealth to the people that just want to complain and not work for a living. That’s not fair and it isn’t the American way. Alot of the mess that is happenning in our society today is because we elected politicians that became irresponsible with running our Government. I agree we need to change for the better, but putting the blame on the rich is totally wrong.

        By the way, for anyone that is wondering, I also happen to be one of the 99%. But I’m hoping that one day I will become one of the 1% that got to be 1% through the American Capitalistic way of sweat and hard work!

        • badgerboy23

          Exactly, David. And BTW–let these morons burn down Macy’s, shut down the subway and bridges, etc… Obama and Pelosi and the rest of the idiots in the Democratic party jumped on this bandwagon early when they thought it was a “power to the people” copycat from the ’60’s. There are stll 30% of this country that will always vote for those idiots….and 30% that never will. The Occupiers are making sure that the 40% who vote independent are gonna throw the bums out.

This could flame out, or get out of control like it did in London earlier this year. The police are going to have to follow the mindset of responding to a push with a punch if they don’t want NY to turn into London.

    This is all el mayor bloomberg’s fault for letting these miscreants terrorize NYC. He should have to pay for all the cleanup costs, police overtime, and any and all damages caused by these criminals. The criminals themselves should be jailed for several months and fined $5,000 each

  • tomusmc

    make them all go back to their mom’s basement and give them some new PS# game , that will keep them “Occupied” for a few years. LOSERS

    • Steve

      Hey Tom! Nothing wrong with a PS3….Modern Warefare helps me relax…:)

  • John Bryan

    It’s the anarchists who have infiltrated the movement who are going to cause as much damage as they can. I can only hope they come down to our small town and try something…it’s deer season and we could use the extra practice on a moving target…

  • Uncle Feng

    SO these slackers would rather mouth off in the streets than find jobs and try to be a viable part of society?

    I am in the 1% and I have worked my fvcking azz off day in and day out for the last 30 year to get where I am. Get the grades, go to school and get a life.

    No compassion for these losers from me.

    • julius_weisenheimer

      You sound like the f*cking, Commie ch*nk that took my job under Multicultural Cronyism or Affirmative Action. Go f*ck yourself.

    • deaconbob

      Thank you, sir for the jobs you create.

  • D

    There are hundreds of effective things people could do to make a difference but they don’t involve chatting on facebook, partying, pooping on the streets, taking drugs and blowing other people’s money on luxury food and making up random slogans until the party is over. They don’t want to know what it takes to have a positive effect because they don’t really care.

  • steve

    or perhaps a whiff of grape and a troop of cavalry…

  • Joshua Arguien

    Isn’t that just like a hippie? Brings a bottle, to a gun fight.

  • Fred17

    Destruction is their capability. Whining is their motto. Doing something constructive is unthinkable.

  • norway

    bring it on – you’re about to experience mace and water. great combination.

    enjoy jail time

  • Rick

    Stay out of my way OWS… I have work to do and money to make… I am a 53% and don’t have time for your OWS BULL $h1t !!

  • Claire

    The 99% are at work in those buildings around the protesters. This mob represents the 1%….the bottom 1% who demand it all FREE.

  • Carl Thisgus

    Arrest them all, fine them thousands of dollars. We all need to pay our fair share.

  • Edward Riepe

    If this happens in other cities it sounds like an opportune moment for Obama to implement Rex84. Google that.

  • Pogmo

    Lock that bum up. Threatening to bomb Macy’s surely must be a crime.

    • Edward Manhattan

      Where is our President on this matter? OH yeah, he said he supports them. Got Voter’s Remorse?

      • Marcy G

        Enjoying another vacation in Hawaii with the fam…..

        • Rush limpball

          Whenever the Commander and Chief goes to Hawaii the US should be on high alert. Its not just a vacation spot. Its the only piece of land with the highest population of mobilized military and home to one of the most secure nuclear base facilities in the world.

          if you believe that I have some land I want to sell you on Wall Street, its a bit crowded right now, but should be vacated soon, might be some body parts and stains on the property but will have that in the clause you sign. Love – Rush

  • Steve Adams

    NYPD.. shoot to kill, boys.

    • Creepy Camper

      How many had to die at Kent State? Please don’t give Young any ammo for an attempted come back… I like his tunes the way they are.

  • Phil

    When they threaten violence it seems to me it is time to activate the National Guard and get rid of them. We do not need this kind of anger in America.

    • Jeff Sayin

      One idiot who has now been arrested does not speak for the OWS movement which has always been about nonviolent civil disobedience …just like MLK and Gandhi.

      Just because all you OWS haters cheer each other based on lies regurgitated from Fox News does not make it true.

      And I note that it is you hypocrite Phil advocating violence (“get rid of them”) – not OWS.

  • don

    this is total propaganda peice

    • http://leterrip.wordpress.com leterrip

      Don, “i before e, except after c…”

      Actually, it would take an electron scanning microscope to find a worthwhile idea among this crowd of revolutionary brats.

  • Pounce Kitty

    Impotent clowns, impotent message, life will go on with or without them.

  • Susan Gate

    These lunatics should be in an asylum.

    • David

      Instead they’re out and about and actually able to vote. Entirely too many people are allowed to vote.



    • JD Truth

      Obummer has supported it from the beginning. This is his “Army”. NYC hopefully wakes up soon. Need another mayor like Rudy as well.

    • ss12

      Obama endorsed these folks so he obviously supports them. Go Big O. You da Man. You statist media tells us how smart you are so it must be a good thing. Your community organizing skills are finally being used nationally.

    • Statesrule

      When do you think you will realize he is one of them?

  • JD truth

    keep voting for the dems this is what you get. This is all orchestrated, nothing real just a diversion by Obummer leftist ilk.

  • dave

    ows are a bunch of lazy morons!

  • fisherKing

    Anon get’s punked out by the Zetas. This mob not only remains silent on real evil in the world, like gladiator fights organized by the cartel, they support them by selling their dope.

    I am happy these people don’t have wealth and will probably never have it in their lives. They would be worse than al-Qaeda. Think HH Holmes.

  • Dor

    A bunch of infants.

  • steve

    front end loaders and dump trucks…

    • Dan in Twin Cities

      Soylent Green! Yummo! ; )

    • iamworking

      Now THAT’s a truly brilliant solution and I’m not being sarcastic… they are asking for it…… what a bunch of cry babies………

  • Rush

    “Starting at 7:00 a.m.”?

    Can’t be…

    Hippies don’t usually get outta bed – or up off the floor – til at least noon…

    • ss12

      Under Frank and Dodd’s plan they can own a home in suburbs. They don’t need an income, don’t need to pay for a house. This is the best of all worlds for these folks…call Barney and get home guys.

      • http://ny9solyndra.wordpress.com NY9Solyndra

        Maybe they should call this the Peggy Joseph movement.

    • Pretzel Logic

      I was thinking the EXACT same thing. They don’t know what 7:00 *a.m.* is.

      • http://ny9solyndra.wordpress.com NY9Solyndra

        7:00 a.m. is when the maid makes too much noise she arrives to clean the house!

  • Candy

    I am very curious as to what the goal is here…What are these people trying to accomplish? Maybe instead of living in the park, they should organize and set up something constructive, something similar to job fairs.

    • Pete Lanteri

      Should be obvious by now. Collapse the capitalist system and replace it with communism!

      • JPrimus

        We’ll be sure to put you against up the wall too, Pete, when the time comes. No blindfold.

        • idoofus

          @jprimus – I really wish you all would come visit if you really want to push that agenda. Don’t show up on Wednesday evening or Saturday morning though – I’m at the range at those times.

          Re Candy and the job fairs: a job is the last thing they really want. If they did why would they, as one personson was complaining about, spend $96000 for a degree in gay, hispanic studies? Anyone taking that type of course wants it all for free.

      • Dan in Twin Cities

        It’s the Cloward & Piven Plan playing itself out.

        Just as predicted.

    • uisignorant

      I guess you never watched Glenn Beck. For a year he talked about this coming and was labeled a hate monger.

  • mak

    That’s real smart. The 1% either drives to work or is taken by limo or cab. It’s the 99% who takes the subways and they are the ones who are going to be affected by this subway ‘action’.

    Can somebody please stop these people? Their’rage’ is really starting to step all over my nerves. In fact, I could be developing my own ‘rage’.

    • Guest

      You’re talking common sense. These people have none. They wear Che Guevara shirts, poop in the streets, complain about having to pay back their student loans for their Chicano Studies degree and blog with the IPads about how they can’t get a job.

    • Clo

      My thoughts exactly!!!
