And how exactly do YOU know what these protests are about? From what the protestors are wearing and how old they are? Because they look scruffy compared to the people you play golf with? Because you can tell by looking at them on TV that they are self serving parasites, unlike the Banksters and JOB CREATORS who are Doing God's Work®?

You know what? Joseph Stiglitz, a Nobel Prize winning economist, has endorsed the protests. I am sure you are a lot smarter than he is, so I will just accept your judgments without question.

Zondor no need to get nasty. Personal attacks really not needed.

Quoting 
You guys being upset at 'greedy bankers' or lenders for taking advantage of an environment initially fostered by government, is like being pissed at a brown bear you cornered after he takes your face off.

And who was it exactly who was operating the strings of the Poli-puppets who fostered that environment? The Lobbyists for the Soup Kitchens? Unspecified "liberals"?

I thought it was pretty clear who Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, Alan Greenspan, Phil Gramm, and the other crooks of that ilk worked for, but I must be wrong.

Is there a way to "double-thank" or even "triple-thank" a post?

If only..... see if you can think of another analogy for the situation. Here's another one:

Being angry at a GREEDY lender that had all of their risk removed and backed by the government who no longer had to worry about risk is like.......

Being mad at a hooker who gave you an STD.... AFTER paying her to 'work' without any form of protection

Personally I think there are some who should have gone to jail that fostered the financial crisis. But they were to cozy with Pelosi and Obama. Funny how the liberals embrace the protesters when they take money from the bankers. Obama more than any President in history. Can get nasty and slam the Right but the Left are covered in their own you know what.


One of the themes in these protest is not to only make those bankers pay. But make all rich people pay and spread the wealth around. This is much about much more than making some greedy bankers pay. They want a socialist system.

B/C some politician gets something from a lobbyist is NOT an excuse to tank the economy.

That's like a police officer hiding murder evidence for a suspect, and then later being caught and using the excuse, "Well he payed me to do it!"

The buck stops at the politician. They are responsible for their actions.

Zondor if the protesters knew what you did for a living they would come beat your door down and force you to share your profits.

Trading connects you to "evil" they want to vaporize whether you like it or not.

My issue with the whole occupy wall street nonsense is how they want to bring the rich down instead of elevating themselves...

Everyone wants to be rich, or at least have enough money to live very comfortably.

Instead of penalizing people who have "made it", why not try and elevate themselves (occupy wall street hipsters) to a higher place?

The Civil Rights Movement wasnt about bringing white people down.. It was about elevating the status of african americans..

Why cant this be the same way?

Oh I forgot.. ENTITLEMENTS... Bunch of people feeling entitled to having lots of money and then all of a sudden realizing "wow I'll never be a millionaire, I thought everyone was supposed to become one?".

Now, I do agree with some who say illegal things happened and still happen in our financial industry, but until OWS recognizes that as there only cause count me out.

CNBC

"Rose Swidden came to Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan from upstate New York, where she is studying agriculture at SUNY Cobleskill. She expects to graduate in May with $35,000 in debt, and doesn't know how she will pay it back.

"We did what we were told to do: go to college, get an education, you'll get a job, you'll get a house, you'll be cool," she said. "And that's what we did. And now here we are done with it—and now what?""

Well that sucks lady, I'm sorry
