Wow, finally, people realize that there are a lot of dishonest people involved with Wall Street. Incredible. Hey protestors, you are a bit late.
Thanks for protesting the obvious. I'm going to start protesting against cancer tomorrow, I heard it's bad too.
I suppose you think (thought)the Tea Party was silly, too? There is a fair amount of overlap between the two.
Very neat to hear you say that, Ralph. I have thought that for some time; but I know that in matters related to politics and economics, you have more credibility than I ever could or will.
Interestingly, the local Patch report on this week's Doylestown PA Occupy protest included this bit of news:
Some noted seeing members of the Doylestown-based Tea Party group Kitchen Table Patriots drive through the intersection waving “Don’t Tread on Me” flags.
“This is what Doylestown looks like when we come together,” said Marlene Pray, Doylestown Borough Council candidate..."
How many of the people who are protesting have jobs? How many of the people protesting work for Wall Street or corporate America?
Just interested - does anyone know?
I wonder how many of the protesters buy products that are produced by the very people they are protesting? I'm sure someone on Wall Street profits from the sale of patchouli.
Better late than never.
The idea of a protest isn't to get all sympathizers involved. It's to raise an issue with the general public that might be otherwise ignored.
Belittling them by making insults about hippie cultural habits weakens your argument, not theirs.
What happened here? Yesterday it seemed like there were many more posts and now they are gone?
You have a more constructive approach to suggest? Because we have pretty much cured a bunch of cancers and are working hard on the rest to the tune of many millions of dollars and person-hours.
You are correct. We've known about the problem for quite some time. And yet nothing has changed. If the protests can force the issue. They've accomplished something that simply knowing about it wasn't able to.
They are protesting here in Portland, Oregon as well. Many downtown streets have been filled and the city government has come out in support of the protests. Photos of hundreds and thousands of people choking of downtown have been on the headlines most nights. Everyone I have talked to has a job and is not at it while they protest. I asked a few guys and they came from different walks. One guy, who was very young, was in IT, and two more worked security at a bank. I can't remember anything else off the top of my head.
Everyone is normal from what I can see, at least from what's happening in my city. There are literally thousands of them too. It's impressive.

Hey all,Here's a video I stumbled upon that uses *gasp* facts and statistics -- and history -- to illustrate that the current Occupy Wall Street movement is incorrect, naive, hypocritical, and just plain ol' misinformed.Robert Murphy - an economist who is still waiting for Krugman to get off his...

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

Are you surprised that billionaires have addressed Occupy Wall Street?I am very surprised that billionaires like Donald Trump and Steve Wynn have addressed the Occupy Wall Street movement. I am surprised that such a rag tag movement is worthy of their consideration. Their comments...
