    It's a hell of a list of folks to be associated with...

    The 99%: Official list of Occupy Wall Street’s supporters, sponsors and sympathizers:

    Communist Party USA
    American Nazi Party
    Ayatollah Khamenei, Supreme Leader of Iran
    Barack Obama
    The government of North Korea
    Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam
    Revolutionary Communist Party
    David Duke
    Joe Biden
    Hugo Chavez
    Revolutionary Guards of Iran
    Black Panthers (original)
    Socialist Party USA
    US Border Guard
    Industrial Workers of the World
    CAIR
    Nancy Pelosi
    Communist Party of China
    Hezbollah
    9/11Truth.org
    International Bolshevik Tendency
    White Revolution
    International Socialist Organization
    PressTV (Iranian government outlet)
    Marxist Student Union
    Freedom Road Socialist Organization
    ANSWER
    Party for Socialism and Liberation

    Wow, that's quite a distinguished list of supporters. I'm reminded of the old saying "With friends like these, who needs enemies?"

    Personally, I agree with the OWS anger at the business side of crony capitalism. I'm not fan of those organizations that took bailouts and that lobby for loopholes and regulations favorable to their business over their competitors. However, I believe their ire should be directed at the politicians that wrote those laws and voted for those bailouts. In my time talking with OWS protesters in Los Angeles, they all called for even bigger government power, not less. Most were out and out socialists or even communists. The above list would appear to support my personal experience.

    Imagine that... what happens if the 99% get their way? Perhaps it wouldn't have gotten this bad if Corporatism wasn't the rule of the past 30 years. That's what the Reaganomics legacy has wrought. Fuck the worker coddle the wealthy. Workers are fighting back.

    Congratulations. Conservative policies is what got us here.

    I'm sorry, but did you just blame corporatism, which I also abhor, on Republicans? While I am not a Republican nor a Democrat, I'll just have to point one thing out to you: Wall Street, that evil den of crony capitalists...is in Chuck Shumer's district. Just saying.

    it is clearly an orchestrated event but it could well back -fire on them..this protest could take on an agenda of its own and bite the hand that feeds yet, when it does you will see people clubbed like seal pups and the rubber bullets will fly and there will be mass arrest like we have never seen before

    The corporatist cocksuckers see the people who work for them as nothing more than a burden.
