Since my post on how I thought Occupy Wall Street is Stupid, I've been getting a lot of traffic. The vast majority has been quite positive, agreeing with my post. Over the last few days I've been getting very pro-occupy wall street comments and this mainly corresponds with the traffic dying down a bit. Plus occupier are being evicted. Anyway.

Normally I just delete comments that are so retarded. Normally I allow stupid, but if it falls into that fringe of catchy stupid/conspiracy crap it goes. I thought I'd share the ones I get here and people can see. I'll even reply to them. *More will be added as they come in.

It is an anti-corruption protest! What's wrong with the U.S. public demanding true representation in D.C. (the only thing being represented is the wants of corporations, who influence policy in every sphere- medicine, food, banking, you name it, so that the very people making the policies which regulate these industries are paid off by the industry themselves) it is a huge disservice to the American people, who deserve to have political representatives who act in the best interest of the constituents.

In short we are fighting for true CAPITALISM not Corporatism which we see today. Corporations having more rights than people and having NO responsibility. They are fighting to reinstate the Glass Steigel Act, which separates the banking arm from the investment arm of a bank. They want to audit the FED, that privately owned bank to which the U.S. public will always be in debted.

So the OWS is actually fighting for capitalism and democracy, corporations to abide by laws and morals, what is wrong with any of that?

I just can't get over the stupidity of this statement. It's one part Ron Paul retarded and one part Liberal. And you know that it is a good mix.

It is an anti-corruption protest!

No it's not. From the Occupy Wall Street website: "...aims to fight back against the richest 1% of people..." I at least hope you remember all the "We are the 99% crap". You're not the 99%, but that is another story. It's a socialist movement. One that isn't looking to "end corruption", but to distribute wealth away from the rich and give it to others.

What's wrong with the U.S. public demanding true representation in D.C. (the only thing being represented is the wants of corporations, who influence policy in every sphere- medicine, food, banking, you name it, so that the very people making the policies which regulate these industries are paid off by the industry themselves)

For me, this stuff falls into the realm of conspiracy theories. There always some group moaning about how the "big corporations" are running everything. Even though the corporations don't have the right to vote and pay taxes, while every American citizen of the age of 18 can vote, whether they pay taxes or not. It's almost as bad as the claim that people are too stupid to know who to vote for. The evil media brainwashes people into voting for certain candidates and no one else has the intellectual power to see past it, except for yourself.

In short we are fighting for true CAPITALISM

Not true. Nothing really to say but that.

Corporations having more rights than people and having NO responsibility.

Such as? Do they have the right to vote? I seriously would like to know because I actually own a small corporation, so I want to know what sort of bonus rights that I have (especially the ones about world domination).

 They are fighting to reinstate the Glass Steigel Act, which separates the banking arm from the investment arm of a bank.
That doesn't sound like "true CAPITALISM". In fact, I'm pretty sure the Glass Steigel Act does the complete opposite of what you stated.

They want to audit the FED, that privately owned bank to which the U.S. public will always be in debted.

Another glorious conspiracy theory. All that crazy Jekyll Island stuff and rich bankers planning to take over the world. The only problem with this is that it simply isn't true.

The reason I posted this comment is because it just shows you how the stupidity of fringe right and fringe left actually mix quite well. It's literally one part crazy Ron Paul and one part crazy Ralph Nader. Creepy.
