How do you feel about the protests going on in London right now?

A. I sympathize with what they are saying, but not sure I'd go that far.

B. I think they aren't yelling loud enough.

C. They are freaking lunatics.

Let me guess, they are blaming this whole economic mess on blue eyed individuals.

Of course, if they would just look in the mirror.

These protesters are slightly informed, have copious amounts of time on their hands and smell like moldly laundry.

Having said that, I appreciate the zeal, but if it's uninformed, it's a waste of time.

Similar to the guy who charges the field during a game. Don't give him air time.

If these folks are so passionate about the messes they see, run for office, start a business/foundation etc to eradicate it where you see it.

The time vs energy and the ROI on the protest yields very little.

I think they're all basically losers. In every way imaginable, they are losers.

Mass protests in Europe have actually had an effect on public policy over there. The problem is that any protest that will get the medias attention has the effect of bringing every protest group out into the park, whether or not it's relevant to the issue at hand.

In the 70's and 80's the massive anti-war and anti-nuke rallies swayed a lot of public opinion, even though there was a lot of covert Soviet support for them going on. Now it's just a bunch of left wing radicals wanting air time for their pet cause.
