I haven't posted on here in a while, but is there anyone on here that is pro-occupy movement? And can explain the me what the fuck is so wrong with Saskatchewan? Or why you bitch about getting tickets, while illegally camping in a public park for days on end, while waisting tax payers money taking these tickets to court? I honestly do understand the American standpoint of this argument (although it is a little extreme), but why the fuck do these hipsters feel the need to protest about our conditions?

I would post something but it will only turn into a thread about people wanting to legalize pot.

Just to clarify my thoughts on occupy Regina have nothing to do with pot. But if anybody remembers the over population thread some maniac went off about smoking pot for some reason then it turned into 10 pages of some loose cannon screaming about weed.

Well it certainly isn't hipsters out there, they don't care about anything and usually have trust funds. In Regina it's more the paranoid stoner crowd, hardcore socialists and homeless people.

agreed. They support the idea that is "occupy regina" but are just band wagon jumpers. I agree with the concept that to many CEO's and VP's are taking massive bonuses and pay increases for no reason. The middle class society has basically been eliminated, almost. BUT, camping out front of city hall is going to do fuck all but piss the city council off and in the end get you a nasty fine. If you want something changed then try and change it. Camping and saying "you're one lay-off away from joining us" is fucking retarded. Their are tons of jobs and opportunities in the trades and warehouse district...get off you're asses.

Basically it started out as a protest against corporate influence in American politics; ie: corporations running their country.

This assertion is absolutely true, and if you don't think it is, ask yourself how presidential hopefuls can possibly stir up enough money to have a successful, viral campaign without massive private donations. Where do these donations come from you ask? Corporations. Banks. Insurance Companies. In return for this initial boost, and if their man becomes president, they expect a few favours in return.
Tax cuts for big business? You got it LG. You need a bailout Goldman Sachs? We're on it.

Also creeping into the picture is the fact that after the global collapse of 2007-2008, many of the people who were CEOs or very high up in the corporate ladder at their respective companies ditched their companies just prior to, in order to save their fortunes. They saw it coming. Where do they work now? For the government, and this has been going on for generations.

As far as I can see, this was the genesis for OWS, and it's something that I am (and most people) are completely behind. As time as passed, other issues have risen, like the uneven distribution of wealth in the US, the shrinking middle class, and unemployment. In an act of solidarity, countries from around the world had their own "occupy" movement, including here in Regina. Whether or not these issues are real here is another question, which will depend on where you stand on a whole host of issues.

No one is denying there right to protest and I think most on here believe their initial cause is a good one.

Problem is camping out in a park is not accomplishing anything at all, is loitering and in our society that is against the law.

many were quite offended when they did not vacate for the rememberance day ceremonies which i agree with, they wouldnt even have the right to protest had our veterans done such a good job so already right there they have lost the respect of many people who might have otherwise been behind them.

I also noticed one of them had made a sign speaking out against the criticism against them it read:

"dont laugh you are one layoff away from joining us" or something of this nature.

I find this stupid because No i am not one layoff away from joining, should I get canned today I will go job hunt and chances are I will find a job no problem maybe not a glamorious job that everyone desires but something that will pay the bills.

ive had my share of arguing today so ill make it short and simple what i think . the movement as a hole is something i 100% stand for the way it gets conducted in some places not so much but like everything there is always a few bad apples and society looks at just those bad apples and judges the whole thing based on that this is something that also irritates the fuck out me .

another issue i have is the people that have no fucking idea what it is for or why its happening and are to retarded to do some research on the subject but still think they know whats going on and disrespect what these people are trying to do for us the normal guys ...

Jobs are always available our economy is booming. So I don't know why people are complaining about, not having a job and having to support what ever bullshit. You have a choice to get a job and support your family, there is no such thing as. There's no jobs available. I'm only 18, i live at home, so what? I hold my own, not go camp out at a damn park. Anyone can make income, it comes down to getting off there lazy ass and pushing to get one. Even if its at mcdonalds, no one wants to work there but they do, because they have needs / wants. To support.

Thank you for proving my point Kyle. I am going to university so that jobs ARE available. While others are out CAMPING im in a classroom working my ass off to ensure my future.

Different people have different views on life. As bad as it sounds, I see life as a competition in a way. Everyone wants a bigger house, higher paying job, and nicer car than their neighbour. Unfortunately some people just want to put in the bare minimum in life and get by doing as little as possible. I was brought up differently, and was taught that if I worked my ass off, got an education and continued to work hard I could have nice things. I dont doubt Ill live at home for the next 2-3 years, as I am taking 2 programs at the moment. But hey, in 5-10, hell even 20 years I know it will be worth it.

But I mean, what do i know.

Im well aware of this, but what I also know is that if one is willing to go out and work for it, they too can attend a post secondary institute. I am actually friends with a kid who got booted from his house and was working 2 jobs ( worked shifts BEFORE and AFTER school), while taking 3 courses. Nobody can say its not possible.


What DO you want to argue about then?

To be fair, that in itself starts a whole other argument about rising tuitions prices in relation to inflation. University is increasingly becoming less and less attainable to a majority of the population.
