    It is becoming interesting.
    It began with a few dozen people, and is now a few thousand.

    People have been talking about whether protests like those in France/Italy/Britain/Greece would start here. Perhaps this is just the beginning.

    They are Obama's sock puppet.

    Wall Street makes America Great and it's why Obama and the Left wants to terrorize it. Remember Obama's Strafing run in AF1 over NY? He thought it would be funny to fly low over Wall Street.

    Wall Street made America great. Not anymore.

    Cash equities are no longer the bread and butter of the industry. Now it's fancy gambling.

    Crony capitalism is a term describing a capitalist economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials.

    We all need to elect people who want to get rid of money being exchanged by lobbisits to our representatives.

    That is because they are just kids.
    They get confused, they believe capitalism is the problem - not realizing that capitalism is merely the hijacked vehicle corruption rides on.

    It is like blaming the web camera when a paedophile uses it to film a neighbor girl in a swimming pool.
    Sallow is right - they should have said "Corporatism is organized crime"...
