    So what would end OWS? I mean what would they have to accomplish for them to decide that they've accomplished their goals and go back to living their lives? What's the end game? Or are they just going to occupy until they get old and die?

    Hold a jobs fair in Zuccotti Park.

    Load a bunch of little hotel shampoo bottles and bars of soap in one of those tee shirt bazookas and pepper the crowd with them.

    OWS isn't going to declare success and go home. The protests will die down gradually as people become tired or distracted. While the protests can't last forever, the movement might roll into the political normal, much as Tea Party protests died down but the "Tea Party" remains a substantial part of the political dynamic.

    A snow storm might end it but it's never going to end with "mission accomplished". How could it? The best they can hope for is an unfortunate confrontation which would put them in the victim status or if they could last long enough to campaign for Obama.

    Can a person actually die of boredom?

    I mean, is it medically possible?

    Mass prosecutions of Wall Street parasites like Brian Moynihan of Bank of America.

    "The most recent bombshell hit in early September when Bank of America was one of 17 firms ranging from Citigroup to General Electric that was sued by the Federal Housing Finance Agency, which claimed the lenders misled Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac about the quality of loans that were packaged and sold to the government-sponsored enterprises.

    "The FHFA claims in its suit filed in federal court in Manhattan that Bank of America, together with its Countrywide Financial and Merrill Lynch units, sold Fannie and Freddie mortgage-backed securities that violated securities law and that Bank of America needs to repurchase a yet-to-be determined amount of more than $50 billion of those securities."

    The Lawsuits Plaguing Bank Of America - Forbes

    The riskiest derivatives in BofA's Merrill Lynch unit have recently been transferred to a retail banking subsidiary whose deposits are backed by the FDIC.

    The bankers are coming back for more bailouts, and their corporate shit eating tools in cyberspace will help them get it.
