This is what I posted on facebook under the Scott Olsen vid from BigMike, I downloaded to FB.

"Go OWS, (Tiberius) is behind you all the way. Down with the fascist police. But OWS you are looking the wrong way; it is the Obama Fannie Mae Adminstration that is place to cover up the crimes of the Clinton Dream Team: Rubin, Greenspan & Summers; and the "3 who took down Wall Street": Raines, Howard & Johnson. WAKE UP OWS."

All true. Clinton repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, and allowed derivatives to be unregulated. The advocates for that, however, were Graham-Leach-Biliey. Everybody has his hand in the pie.

Also, the financial institutions were allowed to leverage up 30-40:1 in 2004 or 5 (don't recall atm), turning a Bang into a KA-BOOM!

That actually points out the problem in the whole financial meltdown, because the front-man gets switched but a lot of the guys standing behind the curtain ended up being kept on anyway. You'd think that William Black, who has experience with the S&L would be called upon, but nope.

I have a lot of respect for the Marines ...

Regarding Scott Olsen, the man injured at the Occupy Oakland protest, I am sorry that he and anyone else got injured during that protest. I have a lot of respect for the Marines but apparently this guy didn't:

It's hard to get too enthused about someone who creates a website called "IHateTheMarineCorps.com" ...

And now MERS gets sued...

Delaware AG Beau Biden Sues MERS | FDL News Desk

The crux of the problem is if, as in this this article,
Law Expert: MERS Mess Could Have “a Massive Effect on the Economy” | FDL News Desk
the statement "While MERS stipulates that the servicers must convey the promissory notes to MERS, it appears they didn’t do that in all or even most cases, and the underlying paperwork could be lost." is true.

If they were required to pass on the promissory notes but "lost" them, then they were not conducting their business in a competent/legal way. MERS is said to hold 60 million mortgages. That's a lot of mistakes.

What is supposed to happen to businesses that do not conduct their business in a competent/legal way in a capitalist economy?

Trolling for Negative Attention?

Olsen seems to be making a good recovery.


Quoting 
Despite the financial underpinnings of the protests, Olsen himself wasn't taking part out of economic need.
His friends say he makes a good living as a network engineer and has a nice apartment overlooking San Francisco Bay. Still, he felt so strongly about economic inequality in the United States that he fought for overseas that he slept at a protest camp after work.
"He felt you shouldn't wait until something is affecting you to get out and do something about it," said friend and roommate Keith Shannon, who served with Olsen in Iraq.

People at OPSWAT, the San Francisco security software company where Olsen works, were devastated after learning of his injuries. They described him as a humble, quiet man.
Olsen had been helping to develop security applications for U.S. defense agencies, building on expertise gained while on active duty in Iraq, said Jeff Garon, the company's director of marketing.
Olsen was awarded seven medals while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, which he left as a lance corporal in November 2009 after serving for four years. One of them was the Navy-Marine Corps Achievement Medal.

Quoting 
I wonder if this guy was even a vet. He didn’t even duck when the first shot was fired. Probably a homeless guy dressed up as a vet. Either that or he was higher than the profits of the banks they are protesting.

This tells you something about the person who posted it. Something that is not good, and not as easy to recover from as broken bones.

furytrader had been deceived by a crackpot smear job

Sorry, this seems to be extremely unlikely. SuperSleuth Karl Denninger has uncovered the following:

Smear Job From The Right? (Scott Olsen) in [Market-Ticker]

Quoting 
Ok, let's pick through it.

First, Scott is allegedly from Wisconsin, not Milan Illinois. Strike 1.

Second: Created on: 28-Jan-09. Where was Scott on 28 January 2009?

According to what I can ascertain from the public record he was in Iraq on deployment on that date. Strike 2? Maybe.

Now sure, he could have still created the domain I suppose. But where would have gotten the address, and is anything there? Let's look.

Oh oh.... now we got problems. Not only is there something there (look at the address in Street View) but it also pops up as an address for a company called "SRH Roofing". The owner is listed as one Shawn Hicks - no match. We'll reserve the strike for now.

But we got a couple of other problems. There are Google Cache entries within the last couple of days that validate that certain people have tampered with the Whois returns in their alleged "reporting".

Now that last little tidbit is very interesting..... But let's believe what we want to believe.

Anarchists

In one word - Anarchists! There is no need for any redistribution of cash or debt - I believe in one tax bracket for all.

Two words: social justice


Social justice generally refers to the idea of creating a society or institution that is based on the principles of equality and solidarity, that understands and values human rights, and that recognizes the dignity of every human being.


No one is saying redistribute the wealth soviet style, just make it a level playing feild. The rich 1% should play by the same rules the 99% of us are asked to.

Let's face it. The current system is a farce. It is beyond hope for poor who have been conned into cheering for the rich. For the slowly awakening, non face book gazing, rest of America it is now or never to reclaim what has been stolen from them - hope for a better future for themselves and their children. Of course for some of these protesters it is about nihilism. Antipathetic. They will always be there no matter what the event . That should not diminish or distract from the greater common cause. Respect for Rule of Law. But pacifism and refusal to participate in the system are the only real tools to effect change . So Stop shopping. Put your money in a local bank or a safe in your house. Cancel you cable tv. Withdraw from the system. If anything buy local and not big box. Soldiers are sacrificing their lives abroad. They are overly represented among the homeless once they return. Support the troops . Respect the law. Be a peaceful non shopping army of one. Everything else will be villified by the media and special interest groups that maintain the false divides in the populace. Peace. Out.
