    Those people on Wall St don't "make" anything. They make their money oftentimes "shorting" people like Goldmann did.

    "For months the protesters had planned to descend on Wall Street on a Saturday and occupy parts of it as an expression of anger over a financial system that they say favors the rich and powerful at the expense of ordinary citizens.

    As it turned out, the demonstrators found much of their target off limits on Saturday as the city shut down sections of Wall Street near the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall well before their arrival.

    By 10 a.m., metal barricades manned by police officers ringed the blocks of Wall Street between Broadway and William Street to the east. (In a statement, Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman said, “A protest area was established on Broad Street at Exchange Street, next to the stock exchange, but protesters elected not to use it.”)

    Organizers, promoters and supporters called the day, which had been widely discussed on Twitter and other social media sites, simply September 17. Some referred to it as the United States Day of Rage, an apparent reference to a series of disruptive protests against the Vietnam War held in Chicago in 1969."

    Did I mention that the New York City Police Department is the best in the world?

    This is a demonstration that appears to be going nowhere.

    Barney Frank was in charge of Fannie Mae when it collapsed and brought down the lending industry and impacted the banking industry and Wall Street. Wall Street corporations keep every pension in the United States solvent but the left wing pot smoking kids wouldn't care about that until they saw how the federal government handled their social security. Wall Street ain't your enemy you dumb putzes, it's your friend. Go demonstrate in front of the White House.

    If Wall Street is such a sweet ride then go hop on that pony.
    Pony up or shut the fuck up.
    Liberals envy success, but rather than work towards it they'd more easily hang on the stirrups and blame the rider for their problems.
