Yes, they are trying to destroy jobs, Mr. Bloomberg. Namely yours, and your lobbiest and your corporate ass kissing.

While I agree this needs to be a peaceful, legal movement as much as humanly possible, I can promises you one thing - out of touch morons like this are why this movement is happening. Best thing they can do is not open their mouths and identify themselves. Because Mr. Bloomberg, you're career just died. You are now un-electable.

And you know what, the protestors wouldn't be placing such a burden on local wallstreet business if YOU, Mr. Bloomberg, supported them, maybe a few portable outhouses, etc...? Instead of trying to thwart them at every step.

I don't know about "unelectable." Bloomberg's a popular incumbent (at least AFAIK he's popular). Also, how are the Occupy protests playing in New York City and America as a whole? Do people view the protests favorably, or do they see a bunch of ragtag, poorly dressed hippie types whining because they don't have jobs? (I'm not saying that's an accurate description of the protestors, but it's how people might see them.)

The right sees them that way, of course. Toss communist in a few times, too. However, they are getting a lot of serious support from unions, the president, and a lot of different mayors. Public opinion, largely due to the non-violent nature of the protesters, has been mostly favorable. Many are comparing it to the start of the tea-party, but, I really don't think it's that kind of movement. We shall see.

I don't know if I necessarily agree with Bloomberg (he does raise some good points though), but I can safely say that the Occupy protestors (as a whole) don't really have a good understanding of what kind of effects their proposals will have on the economy. Like, at all.

For most of them, it can't get much worse anyway. Seattle just dumped hundreds of homeless onto the streets by closing shelters due to budget cuts yesterday. They are currently camping out in front of the Gates Foundation.

Besides, I don't think we intend to start a political party (but who knows) I think what we are asking for is accountability and reciprocity. Especially from the Banks, and the people who took our money and screwed us and not one was ever arrested. We want government to do it's job, and we want very serious and harsh campaign finance reform.

Now explain to me how that destroys our economy?
