Awesome articles lately Andrew!
payingattention is just a silly troll, don't feed the trolls!
To fedup350: What?
You are completely wrong if you think there is no criticism towards the current administration from this movement. I would do some research before you show your ignorance.
...and of COURSE we're pushing our political agenda's... what kind of insult is that? You make it sound like it's some sinister plot.
This is NOT a "democrat" movement, and we are NOT pushing democrat politics.
That being said, I don't mean to attack you as the author, Andrew. It wasn't suppose to go across that way. I understand it is a strange thing to report on, and the language you're having to use to explain to the general public may be confusing.
Kudos for trying bro!
I'd like to throw out three things.
First, the title.
"Occupy Chattanooga unsure about protest"
This language is simply incorrect. Protesting and occupying are not synonymous. There were multiple proposals that passed regarding protests.
Secondly "Already, a separate group of people had received permits to meet at Coolidge Park today, at least until sunset. The event was organized on Facebook as Occupy Globally (Chattanooga), in contrast to the Occupy Chattanooga group."
If you were listening at last nights general assembly you would've heard the distinction being made between an event and a group. Occupy Globally (Chattanooga) is an event. So there is no contrast to the "Occupy Chattanooga group" This illegitimate comparison attempts to show some sort of faction split in the group, which does not exist.
Third "This "protest" is a joke. Just what is their list of demands? Let me guess, legalize LSD a marijuana? I bet there is not a full time job holder in the whole group let alone a taxpayer. I have a list of demands for them. Take a bath and comb your hair. Quit getting high and most important, get a job."
This is a working class movement... so you've already messed up. The MAJORITY of people I've spoken to at Occupy Chattanooga events have jobs; a large percentage of them have full time jobs, and even more of them pay taxes. So your hippy argument doesn't work.
