The Occupy Wall Street movement's premise is that only the people can take back control of the democracy and reinstitute social justice and equality. The movement is in response to the mean spirited and greedy plutocrats who not only control the outcome of the elections but the votes in Congress, Court decissions, and the actions of the President. Occupy Wall Street Movement is based in part on the Arab Spring in which the people took to the streets and seized control of the countries that were ruled by dictators. While it started on Wall Street it has spread rapidly to Main Streets throughout the USA.
The Occupy Wall Street movement wants to make sure Wall Street shakers and fakers are held accountable for the illegal activities that contributed to the Great Recession. They want to change the incentive systems in capitalism to favor society as a whole, instead of the greed and contempt of a few.
It is amazing in the day of high speed communications that it takes three weeks for the Occupy Wall Street movement to get from the social media and street to the corporate media. Even more amazing is how the movements clear message of social and equal justice can be distorted by the corporate media.
Approximately, 47% of the households did not pay federal income tax in 2011. This was in part because the Republicans lowered taxes on the poor to justify huge tax reductions for the extremely wealthy classes during the Bush Era. However, many in the 47% category still pay other types of taxes such as payroll taxes, property taxes, sales taxes, state income taxes, and fees, etc.
The Romney Doctrine promotes the idea that many of these people are unable to change because they feel like they are victims. This includes retirees and elderly, poor that are sick or disabled, mentally incompetent, working poor, under employed and unemployed, students, and farmers who depend on government assistance during part of their lives. Many of these people feel entitled to these government benefits after paying into these systems for most of their lives through income and payroll taxes and fees. And many of them will not vote for a presidential candidate that will dismantle much of the social safety net, or that favors a privatization of these systems.

Symbolically the 99% of the population that does not include the super rich 1% (that controls a larger and larger proportion of the wealth, and extraordinary powers in influencing elections).
Since the 1% started to conserve the trickle of wealth downward, the bottom of the bottom 99% have had learn to live without housing, medical and food. Many of the 99% have been forced to live on the street. Wall Street has become the Skit Road of the Great Recession.
Lots of Bull Shit
Bush: Mission Accomplished
The practice of revealing another persons personal information on the Internet. It is often done as revenge by ex-lovers who post nude images of their former lover online.
When her ex-lover doxxed her on a porn website he was not really thinking of the fact that she was a minor at the time the pictures of them were taken in compromising positions. But he had a lot of time later to think about it in jail after her parents had charges brought against him for statutory rape, and distributing nude pictures of a minor. He was also reminded of it when he had to register as a sex offender. He should not have been so surprised when they posted images of his mugshot and tag line "convicted of rape and possession and distribution of child pornography" on all the sex offender and criminal websites.
Phantom pain is the pain amputees feel in the place where they have lost a limb. Initially it is hard for some to grasp the fact that they have lost a limb, because they can feel intense pain where their limb was. There are methods to reorient the mind so that the pain goes away or is greatly reduced.
Also relates to the imagined pain a person feels when someone they love disappears from their life.
Sarge, I think I have been hit, I got this horrible pain in my left leg.

To speak truthfully, without brown nosing or without being patronizing or without being sensitive and kind.
Susan did not pull any punches when she told Bobby what she thought of him running over her brother in the living room when Bobby was drunk and high on drugs and put the car in drive instead of reverse.
Yea, she tends to use a sledge hammer and nail to driver her point in.
