OCCUPY PORTLAND: Neil Cavuto slaps down Occupy chick! - This is who Obama is siding with! 12122011

OCCUPY PORTLAND: Neil Cavuto slaps down Occupy..., posted with vodpod

Way to go Cavuto.  Job well done.

Kari Koch, the woman in the video is guilty of parroting scripted OWS propaganda and talking points.  Her responses, rather talking points simply do not hold water.

The protests were not supported by major unions at the ports, including the International Longshore and Warehouse Union.  "...A spokesman for ILWU, Craig Merrilees, said the union has specific rules about when it can agree to support a protest. "This was not a picket line under the legal terms of the current labor agreement,' he said...."

As proven by measures taken by the OWS, their methods hurt the people that OWS professes to support, i.e., working and middle class wage earners aka the so-called 99% who are in reality the 53%.

I Am the 53% (or the 51%, or Whatever)

 "If a rival country tried to block our ports, it would be considered an act of war. Yesterday an equivalent act was attempted , right here in America, by people who claim to be on our side: the Occupy Wall Street crowd: Thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters blocked access to several major West Coast ports Monday in synchronized demonstrations that slowed business but fell short of what some protesters hoped would be a complete shutdown of coastal shipping. ..."


How about this?  As the author of the above stated in his post, just maybe the divide is actually between those contributing to society and those who are not, rather than the alleged 99% vs. the 1%.

If so, then that would be a horse of a different color thereby rendering a huge portion of the viewpoints and rhetoric of Occupy Wall Street moot.

Suggested reading:  Port protests by Occupy groups get mixed reaction from workers


Check out, WE ARE THE 53%.
