Do you support the "Occupy Wall Street" movement?
Will you be marching in your city? Do you think it will make any difference?
I certainly support the spirit behind the movement. For thirty years, American middle class income has barely grown while the income of the wealthiest one percent has grown to 40% of the total wealth in America. Add to this the constant outsourcing and lobbying against financial regulations and the social safety net and people are understandably and justifiably angry. I am unable to go down to the protests, but get live reports via livestream, youtube and twitter and report on them. It is my belief that people cannot ignore a protest that has lasted for so long, no matter how little they make respect the protesters themselves.
They have my support 110%! Battling fascism is a case of VICTORY AT ANY COST in my books. I could care less if they're socialists, communists, anarchists, unemployed, etc. What's the worse they can do? Already destroy this bucket of an economy; and the silly concept of globalized-centralized banking fascism?
And for the morons who defend the system because they believe "one day I will be rich," I have news for you: Do you work for Goldman Sachs? Because if you're not a part of that exclusive club; forget it. . .

Millions of Americans are mad over bailouts, unemployment, corporate greed and the list goes on. A Iraq veteran is hurt and he defended our Country. How do you feel about the direction the States are taking? http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/45054697/ns … qj_6Zv7is8

Where is our "reliable" Media and what are they doing?It is becoming evermore upsetting to see that the Occupy Wall Street movement is getting NO coverage from regular TV stations CBS, NBC, ABS in their “evening news” programs. The police brutality in Oakland and Atlanta was not even...
