    In this Wall Street/OWS War,who is winning? Wall Street is boasting about their recent big gains while OWS is boasting about having a big impact and hurting Wall Street. But what do you think?

    I'm going with Wall Street, those fat cats are still balling and what did OWS really accomplish? I don't see anyone changing anything.

    I don't hear anything about that OWS bunch.
    Last I heard they were trying to close the Port of Oakland
    I think that's been it...

    They got bored,the movement lost their interest...
    They went to play with another "shiny" thing that caught their eye
    whatever that may be.

    OWS was correct that Wallstreet is corrupt, but only because Washington continually bails out the corruption rather than let it fail as it would in a free market system. OWS recogized the role corporations play in corporatism or crony capitalism (as opposed to market capitalism) but completely missed the role of government in it. They conflated our current corporatist system with the free market, a grave mistake that led them to pursue terrible policies.

    Wall Street will win as long as the citizens remain passive = screwing ourselves

    Wall Street is winning, they always do, but that does not make the battle any less worth fighting because the alternative is to be scared little serfs afraid to speak up and irritate the bosses.

    They started out ok but later on they got hijacked by the usual suspect Leftist Entitlement nutters. They had a glimmer of hope in the beginning. They even claimed they were non-partisan and not affiliated with any particular Political Party. And that sounded pretty good to most common sense thinking people. But as time went by most began to realize what they were really all about. They all just worked for the Soros-funded far Left/Democrat political hacks. It was really just about that 'Gimme Gimme Gimme' Entitlement stuff. It is kind of sad though. Because they really did have a real chance to do something. Now they've lost so much credibility,i don't think they can make a difference.

    Many on Wall Street are now reporting record profits.
