    Link: Right Here All Over - Revolutions available for everyone. A new angle on Occupy Wall St reveals the strong micro community has formed there.

    I love the sentiment, but fail to see how anything is achieved. The rich folks aren`t going to give their money away and the corporations aren`t going to change. The only real solution is to find a leader that will make the required changes and vote him (or her) in so those changes can be made. Short of that, it`s just a reason for the sheeple to call you a hippy.

    Creating pressure like this is the only way to make sure what when you DO elect someone to do the right thing, they DO IT. Have a good look at Obama since he got elected? Yeah, 0 pressure = 0 delivery on promises.

    This is doing plenty, what I don`t understand is the doubters... Look at history, things always change from uprisings.

    The government of any country is a bit like a landlord. In order to get an repairs made, you have to pester the drat out of them until they do it, other wise they will just continue to take money each month and give you the bare minimum in return.

    @patchouly

    I agree for the most part. A I think a big issue is also that a leader doesn`t make much of a difference these days if the house or the senate is split or led by different parties.

    They just block each others bills/laws and nothing happens.

    Not to mention if leadership ever changed the next party who controls everything can just repeal it all or make new bills/laws to limit/stop it all together.

    How about making all elected officials take a vow of poverty, I bet that would change things quite a bit.

    I just don`t get this... so there is some organization among the protesters. But what do they want? While it is their right to "occupy", it seems pointless. I`m pretty sure that if offered $1,000 to leave, about 90% of the protesters would take it.

    @Bentley22: Um no. See, One of the biggest things we want is to stop Wall Street and other corporate lubbyists from essentially writing their own rules. Essentially, they pay off our politicians to the point that it doesn`t matter who you vote for, your still going to not have the same influence as companies like Wells Fargo, BOA, etc...
    So no...paying us a $1,000 is gonna fix anything.

    They want a lot of things. In a nutshell they want to bring the power BACK to the people.
    And I`m pritty sure your an idiot. You can offer a million dollars to these people and they won`t take it. Cause they will spend the money. And then it will be gone. And then the power still wouldn`t be with the.

    P.S. $1000 really isn`t that much money at ALL. That`s actually very little.

    @jtrebowski: the government is the one who initiated the regulations that encouraged subprime lending; the banks simply found ways to make a crap load of money doing what was completely legal.

    So, really, you should be protesting washington, not wall street - if, as you say, all our politicians are being paid off. Should that be the case, it`s your fault for electing weak people to office.

    In summary: Occupy Wall Street is the assemblage of irresponsible blamers

    @BBJellyFish:

    Did you really call me an idiot? Anyway, the power has and never will be with the people. The power is with those who claim it, those to possess it. It`s the law of the land.

    So, you`re telling me that if I offered a million dollars to every person at Occupy, no one would accept? This is all about the handout, baby, and most of the occupiers are the same kids who played on sports teams where everyone got a trophy, even the losers.

    No handouts, no trophy unless you are a winner. In this world, competition is real; eat or be eaten.

    BBJellyFish, Why do they need a specific message? To satisfy your media fed desire for sound bytes? Yeah their goals are broad and they`ve realized that no matter what party`s in charge they do the same thing. Our economy is in the pooper it`s a combination of Wall St and Washington.

    I saw a sign in DC that demanded: Separation of Corporation and State. Will that do?

    I think the only coherent and universal underlying message is the people in the crowd are moderately* upset about their prospects in the slow economy. The government has no more effective fiscal, monetary, nor policy levers available to it, so all it can do is sit tight, minimise disruption and let them burn off their frustration.

    It`s fun to watch though, especially the mace.

    *I say `moderately` because they`re still behaving reasonably, not acting like a bunch of revolutionaries, blowing up stuff and burning the exchange.

    What do you call an assembly of blood-sucking parasites?

    @madest- "Why do they need a specific message?"

    Well if your trying to send a message to someone, and you are looking for a sincere change, the message part becomes rather important.


    "Separation of Corporation and State. Will that do?"

    Not really, because the totality of the group has different goals, some that include this, some that include communism, some that include the gov` taking blame for 9/11, some want free education, etc.
