    Means one thing...the OWS got their attention.

    Don't they get it The upper 1% in this country have quadrupled their wealth in the last 15 years while average salaries have stagnated when adjusted for inflation. Add to that the government handing the banks a trillion dollars of taxpayer's money with no strings attached and not a banker missed a bonus. Add to that the 20,000,000 when those who are no longer looking are added to the unemployed. Add to that the 50,000,000 Americans with no health insurance. Add to that the fact that corporations own our politicians lock, stock and barrel through campaign contributions and high paid lobbyists.

    This is phase one of a move which will ultimately have a permanant effect on politicians and tax structure in this country. Why do you think the approval rate of the congress is in single digits

    If I was 15 years younger I would pack up my camping gear and join them. I retired 17 years ago and would have been able then. I remember my army days and I would have just imagined I was bivouacked.

    Or maybe these bankers were actually going to a J.O.B. and just now had time to tell them to do the same.

    we dont hate rich people.

    We hate the rich people who boguht and paid for the lack of legislation that caused this mess so they could get richer.

    The real question is WHY DO YOU LOVE BEING OWNED BY THEM?

    Yes, lets blame the poor for their own condition.

    Stupid poor, always being poor. What assholes.

    They deserve to be poor. That's why they were born poor.

    All hail our new caste system.

    15 years ago I was too busy working 3 jobs to whine about not getting government handouts.

    Those guys in the suits got it right. These bums should get a fucking job.

    15 years ago there were jobs, lots of jobs. Now, there are around 16 million that are unemployed and about 3.5 available million jobs.

    Vital Signs: 4.5 Unemployed for Each Job Opening

    Times have changed and banks aren't going nuts giving loans to small businesses.
    Also, how many 100's of millions of dollars have banks paid out in fines for fraud and predatory loan practices in the last couple of years? And people are cheering for banks?
