Another opinion of OWS/Burlington 

What abunch of malarky your story on the occupy people. I checked them out also and talked to a bunch of them. I observed them from when the first tent was pictched to the mess left behind for the taxpayers to clean up. Ryan needs to get a real perspective of what these people are all about and leave his libertarian leanings out of it.
