    they bitch about bailouts.
    they bitch about the housing bubble.
    they bitch about jobs.

    yet they protest wall st instead of the government. the same government that caused each one of those problems. if OWS had any sense they would join forces with the tea party (in an economic context...socially not so much obviously) to get sound money and the free market back on track without the government getting in the way. But nope, these OWS idiots would rather protest middle men and scapegoats and give the real problem a free pass. well done.

    They don't want the free market. These are socialists we are talking about.

    The idiots who are at this protest are only there to feel good nothing more nothing less. They have no plans no solutions, and where their anger should be focus at is congress and both Pres. Bush and Obama for spending this country into this massive debt.

    But, no those Asshats in New York think that if they yell loud enough at people who are just doing their job things would be hunky dory.

    Ugh I really hate people sometimes

    does no one realize how much our lives would suck without corporations, no tvs, computers, cars they would not exist without them businesses are there to make money. the reason the protestors are mad is because they are jealous that they are not the 1%.

    They cannot join forces because they see two very different solutions to the problems that both of them agree exist.

    Its too bad, really because they are both right when it comes to recognizing that this nation is in trouble.

    I think the government deserves some of the blame for not doing their job. But the thing was, at the end of the day, the banks were the ones who lobbied for laxer enforcement and regulation, they were the ones who decided to take all that bad paper, bundle it and sell it to other people.

    If the banks had acted in an ethical, practical way, then there wouldn't have been a need for the government to act.

    Same thing about jobs. I think the government has done a terrible job signing every free trade treaty with every country in the world while those countries have done nothing to really take our products. But at the end of the day, companies decided that, hey, hollowing out the middle class so we can pay ourselves bigger bonuses is a nifty idea.

    The ironic thing is we capitalized rewards and socialized risk. The banks were able to take unnecessary risks because they knew there was no downside. They'd get bailed out and no one would get prosecuted.
