There are supposed to be Occupy protests all over the place today...

has anyone actually witnessed one? It hasn't even been a blip on the news here.

  • There's been news reports of locals handing out fake pinkslips to the employees of Chase Bank later today - they're unhappy with the bank's foreclosure policy.

    I've also seen where there was a riot in San Francisco over it. I plan to stay far away from those nutjobs.

  • Occupy NY lists pickets and sit ins across town beginning at 8AM EDT. But the big stuff isn't happening till much later in the day.

    West coast stuff is scheduled for later in the day, too.

  • I live in a fairly conservative area. I don't expect to see any Occupiers where I am going today.


    Nothing fancy, just the gym and grocery store (just didn't want anyone to think I was being snotty).


    I would imagine the larger populated areas will see some action.  Probably mostly in NY, Portland, LA, SF.  I still think they need to occupy Pennsylvania Avenue.   I mean, wall street gives there money to someone to pay for their advantages.  Makes more sense to occupy those that take pay offs.  Of course, that's just my thought process.

  • I saw one in Beaumont. I had a very hard time explaining to my 4 year old why Santa Clause was there too.

  • I won't see anything local in this little burg.
    I'm still confused as to the point of the occupy movement.
    Did anything positive come out of all the others?

  • wall street gives there money to someone


    Good gravy.  That should read 'their', not there.
