    how does he know that rich people didnt work for their money?

    and busting your ass for something is better than sitting on your ass on the street doing nothing but whining...at least that they are working for what they have instead of complaining

    @sprinkies From my understanding of the this is: The top 1% have increased their wealth (to 85% of the total wealth) while the rest (the other 99%) has stagnated. I agree they maybe working hard for their money, but harder than the other 99%? Without getting in to OWS, if you look at most other countries where there`s large separation of the wealth you tend to find they`re 3rd worlds.

    @ Aedran Mourning Steve Jobs as an innovator and a human being doesn`t negate the protest in any way. Wanting the top 1% to pay the same taxes as the rest of us doesn`t mean we hate them and want them to die. Wanting shady practices to stop doesn`t mean we don`t still want the products and services big business provide.

    It`s idiots like Aedran that will perpetuate the plight of the capitalist lower classes for generations and generations to come. NO ONE IS PROTESTING CORPORATIONS EXCEPT FOR EXTREMISTS. OWS is protesting corporatism; protesting the dark side of capitalism, like profiteering. They are protesting the buyout of the government by corporations, they are protesting the government allowing itself to be bought out. It is assuredly a slim minority advocating the deconstruction of capitalism, or making a case for communism. OWS is, as it`s being so aptly termed: the 99%. OWS isn`t socialists; it is people who recognize that, even in capitalism, the government and the corporations which benefit the most from freedom, should be obligated to take some social responsibility.

    Great, another rant from the fiscally illiterate.

    @jsatan: : The top 1% have increased their wealth (to 85% of the total wealth) while the rest (the other 99%) has stagnated. I agree they maybe working hard for their money, but harder than the other 99%?

    So the main complaint is not whether or not <the generic `you`> are making enough money, it`s that some other people are making more? So are we to be ruled by the green eyed monster? I don`t know how much my next door neighbor earns, and more importantly,don`t care. Why is it different for the top 1%?

    Sprinkles: "how does he know that rich people didnt work for their money?"

    He shouldn`t have generalized, but he was talking about those that made their profits and bonuses by manipulating the system and f9inacing our politicians.
    How is that some of you find that to be acceptable?

    By gosh you`re right, we should have poor, homeless people who can`t maintain a job for a day running the world! You know the ones who are in and out of prison all the time. I bet that makes the world a better place.

    If you criticize the current system without a solution you`re an idiot. SO SHUT UP!

    Sorry, I just can`t take people seriously if they choose to make every other work a curse.
    I don`t usually get too political, but I`ve been learning the basics of what`s going on here. What I understand about the protest, and the part I agree with is this:
    Banks were lending money to people that they should not have lent out money to. These are people who could not afford to pay them back at the high interest rates.
    Everything else I don`t understand. People don`t like that the government isn`t taxing the rich? Wrong, they do tax the rich. Who they aren`t taxing is big corporations. The government wants big corporations to strive because they provide lots of jobs. If they get taxed more than others, the business will suffer, share prices will go down, jobs will be lost.
    I live in Toronto, and people are protesting here, and I have no idea why. They`re in the financial area, which is also where my half-brother works (he`s a stock broker).

    Here`s a solution (albeit one that wont fix all the problems, but it`s a start): Don`t give corporations the same rights as people. Because they`re corporations. Not people.

    @Oldfrt That quote was from my understand of what OWS is trying to convey (as stated), I forgot to add that this isn`t a case that "because your next door neighbor" earn more, but from my understanding the US has a very high poor/poverty percentage. So you`re really really clear, I`m not in the USA. Next time quote the whole post/sentence. I`m trying convey what I think the OWS is trying to convey. Not my point of view, go re-read my post. Someone of your age should really know better.

    To everyone who is basically bringing up how much taxes the rich pay. We seriously don`t care. It`s not about the tax money. Just because over half the people protesting are retarded, and have no bloody idea why we`re even protesting wall-street in the first place does not make this pointless. The solution is to just arrest the bastards for committing the CRIME the are committing. Are they stealing from you? no. Are they stealing from the government? no. They are having the Fed-bank give them money for loans they had no intent on receiving the payment for in the first place. How did they make that money back? They sold the debt. No kidding, they sold it, they don`t loose anything. And we keep devaluing our US dollar because of these backwards policies.

    What they are doing is a crime. It really is, how are they getting away with it then? When you have 2 billion dollars you can make a lot of people look the other way. So don`t protest because your poor, protest to put criminals

    Most of the people that are freaking out have no one to blame but themselves. My wife and I were offered much more money for a home loan than the one we took, but we realized that we wouldn`t be able to afford the payments on the higher loan. So we found a house we liked that was a lot less than we knew we could afford. It`s a pretty simple philosophy; just don`t overextend yourselves.

    So I tell this guy:

    Fine. Get rid of banks. The upper management of the banks you get rid of, will go get high paying jobs somewhere else (because they are qualified) and you will not only have the same amount of money, but you will have nowhere to invest it to make it grow.

    Congrats.

    This guy is a delusional blowhard who needs to spend more time working and less time wasting everyones time with his self-righteous attempts at intellectual masturbation.
    I will instead will support the cause by working hard, and talking to people to explain the needs for reform instead of yelling like a spoiled child.

    Here`s the speech w/o all the "drats":

    You think fat cats worked hard for what they have? WRONG. They manipulate the system to create money. They don`t make and sell- they exploit, swindle, & steal.

    If a swindler tricks an old man out of his pension, would you let the swindler keep his money? Did the swindler "work hard" for what he took?

    If you are saying you "bust ass" for what you have, and you don`t have squat, then you`re probably an idiot.

    You are ONE medical crisis away from being hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. And NO ONE will help you in this country. Just one heart attack, cancer scare, car wreck away from a mountain of debt.

    And that`s not some unlikely scenario. That`s the #1 reason people are in debt in the U.S. But in this country, you`re expected to pay for it yourself. Even if you have medical insurance, they`re likely to say "We`ll pay 20 percent of this bill, but y

    Sometimes he`s really interesting.... but like, I couldn`t handle his voice this time around... he sounds like he`s has a thick layer of saliva slowly slipping out of his mouth with every word... like if that beard wasn`t there, I`m pretty sure we would be able to point out drool slowly leaving his mouth and trickling down his bottom lip.

    I should do my rants like that, but I wait a couple weeks so I can calm down and think it over before speaking my mind. Which is why it`s so dry and not entertaining. May not agree entirely with him, but I did watch the whole thing, so he did something right.
