Nobody likes homeless people. It signifies that something is inherently wrong with people if they cant find a place to live.

"I hold out hope that OWS folks will realize that the lumpen-proletariat can't be part of a true Marxist movement."

Your boss denied you a raise., didn't he?

Include that insight in your next pamphlet. Wear a Che shirt.

NY beta-Times readers are NOT going to like the idea of their 'inspirational' protesting children mixing with the actual dregs of society.

I predict this farce will end in short order.

@GST

I'm beginning to reach the same comclusion.

This whole thing was pretty neat-o, back when the MSM was refusing to report on it, but now it's just a sad, pale charicature of the sixties.

Waving hands instead of clapping? Censoring free speech? Covering up for rapists? And nothing but the most idiotic, schizophrenic manifesto...

They're fast becoming a farce, with no real staying power. I expect that when winter rolls around, they'll go back home. Exhausted from their protests, knowing they accomplished very little. They dull ache of coitus-interruptus throbbing in their gut.

The energy of a whole generation ain't worth so much, can't even get back up to the High Water Mark that Hunter wrote about.

Good. As soon as some homeless bum does something crazy (shitting in the street, masturbating in public, attempting a rape) it's gonna be used to smear OWS. The protesters recognize this and are taking preemptive action.

Eh, the issue doesn't seem to be homeless people per se -- at least one of the guys profiled at the park (the resident sign painter) says he's homeless, living in a men's shelter. He's also a fairly well-spoken, clean-looking (probably because he takes showers at the shelter at night), sober, middle-aged guy. The issue is probably incoherent, filthy, stoned/drunk, mentally-ill homeless people, who are clearly coming for the gourmet grub, etc.

the whole thing is getting more hippie-alike. They not only attract homeless, but also all kinds of weird religious groups, including Muslims, and of course there are not short of real thugs lurking within the protesters for some looting like what happened in Rome.

But then again, the question is when this no-sense would end?

Perhaps it was wrong to think that the way to change an institution was to squat in as close a proximity as possible to its buildings?

proleishplumber,

Yeah, we should elect a black guy.

They raised global awareness to their cause and taught the plutocrats that people aren't nearly as dumb as they think.

America has never been more ripe for the rise of a third party.

How convenient to pitch one's tent at a well supported protest rather than down by the river, where I usually see the homeless hanging out. A guy could get killed down there.

The homeless probably make the number of OWS protesters look more impressive than they really are. It also makes the group more diverse since most homeless people in Manhattan tend to be black or Hispanic. If it wasn't for the homeless, the OWS protesters would probably be little more than a small group of white college grads from upper middle class backgrounds.

True, but what do we do about this problem?

@ Joe Walker

We tell people to avoid drugs, avoid the wrong lifestyles, avoid toxic environments, avoid bad influences, etc. We oppose cultural Marxism. There are lots of way to go wrong in life and only a few ways to do things right.

I just went to Walmart to buy a kettlebell and saw people who were part of the lumpen-proletariat class.

While waiting in line at the cashier, the lady behind me had ten 2 liter soda pop bottles in her shopping cart. Seriously folks I am not making this up. The man in front of me was in such an unkept state I can only assume he was unemployed. He too also had a sweet tooth judging by the packs of candy he was holding with both hands.

"I hold out hope that OWS folks will realize that the lumpen-proletariat can't be part of a true Marxist movement."

But we should hope they keep trying, and keep self-identfiying with the lumpenproletariat. Marxist behavior should destroy Marxism.

Is this really cultural Marxism? The eastern bloc nations didn't allow homelessness, did they?
