Who knows? We are a nation of sell outs and greed runs deep in our culture. Also don't forget that money makes all other things possible, including having a voice and forcing change once it is handed out. That's why no one will ever offer money to an OWS leader to back down. That would give him/her even more power. Instead, they will offer him/her a job in the media as a pundit or a book deal or something like that. It works. These types of offers have transformed more progressives into hardcore conservatives than anything else. They are brought into the system. Sometimes they become lobbyists. It's a pathetic way to give a once-powerless person a taste of power and fame in order to get them to submit.
I like moms. I like firemen. I hate cops.
