I am all for protest and agree that most people are being shafted, but what do they want? What are the practical goals that are supposed to be achieved by this protest? "End corporate greed" seems a slogan without a practical solution.

@kineo - While I agree with this guy`s general sentiment, I find a lot of what he said to be bumper sticker crap and some of it completely wrong... And yeah it`s an opinion. Just because I`m not going to sit here and write an f`in dissertation about it doesn`t mean I have no foundation for my opinion.

Who cares what their demands are if their message is correct. Why should the rich be coddled? We`ve lived with trickle down economics since the Reagan administration and it`s not working. In fact it`s never worked. Reagan was right. The rich should not be paying a lesser tax rate than the middle class. Afterall we need to afford the people who are a financial drain on the system.

markust: The people that run `occupywallst.org` do claim to be the organizers, at least of the NYC based protests, and as I typed earlier their list of demands was originally a `NEWS POST` on their website.

I`m guessing that you clicked the link without even reading my post first, that`s about par for the course with you.

"Hard labor for low pay is better than no job at all, people need to get over it."
Not always. I know people who choose to not get a job [instead try to sell crafts they`ve made online or something] because the best they could get would only pay them enough to pay for their children being in daycare. So which is better? Working your ass off to pay for your children`s daycare, or stay at home with your children so you don`t have to pay for daycare in the first place? Situations aren`t always black and white, and if the pay is too little then it`s not always worth it considering the extra expenses that come with having a job.

Also the protests aren`t in any way about people wanting more money for working less. Quite a bit of the protests are about corporations buying politicians and etc. I`d go into more detail but I have to get going.

Uggh...I came here because I AM BORED and this video just made me even MORE bored! I wanted to see him "School" Fox News and all I saw was some fat guy droning on BLAH BLAH BLAH! Tried to skip ahead and actually get to the "Schooling" and it was just "Blah Blah Blah i`m fat and passionate about a cause." Lame.

This should be interesting to follow for anyone here...

I`m usually pretty far left, but I just face-palm over these protests. People just want more pay to do less work. And honestly, I think there are jobs available, it`s just that they are typically jobs that students or the uneducated pick up, and people who can`t get jobs in the fields their degrees are in think they`re too good for them. Hard labor for low pay is better than no job at all, people need to get over it.

CrakrJak, The site you link to is not an official site. There is no official site. There are a bunch of sites. This just happens to be one of the bigger ones. And this set of demands was from one person - on a forum. A forum you idiot.

markust: The original list of 13 demands came from their own website. But as of yesterday they`ve added a disclaimer at the top that says, "This is not an official list of demands....There is NO official list of demands."

I`m guessing they got a lot of blowback from their ridiculous `proposed` list and now want to distance themselves from it. Original List

It`s understandable that this so called `organization` may be so fractious that it`s struggling to find an identity beyond the usual anti-capitalist rhetoric.

It`s good to note one lie in their disclaimer, The list was NOT a forum post originally, it was a news post and has since been moved to their forum, which means someone within the organization leadership or their web team posted it originally.

To bank on such a degree to get you by is foolish. I was under the impression that it was common knowledge that most who pursue such a career won`t make it and to have a fallback. There is nothing wrong with chasing your dream but you must be prepared to take responsibility for the choices you make.

Calico, I agree but I believe he meant useless in the real job market. To be honest fine arts should be something people take if they haven`t the need for a real career or already have one. These people who get a degree in minority womens studies for 150,000 dollars which has little marketability in the job world and then complain because no one will hire them is just stupid. For one thing they took the debt willingly and if they didn`t know that that degree wouldn`t land them a job perhaps they should have checked before taking on the debt. Don`t get me wrong, counting inflation etc. up from the past we should be at 16 an hour minimum wages to have the same quality of life people had in the 60`s and 70`s so we are definitely getting drated and the Fed and fractional Banking and Lending is at the heart of it. All the same, I am the 94% and the 5% of hipsters pissed they have to pay their bills for degrees employers don`t need or want don`t represent me!

scapegoat: These are mostly just a bunch of upset student socialists that hate capitalism, they`ve not yet had to live out in the `real world`.

The real world is dominated by the capitalist `boogeymen`, in their eyes, and they afraid they`ll have to work at Wal-Mart or Home Depot after they graduate with a useless liberal arts degree.

In other words they`re afraid they might actually have to do some HARD WORK for a living. That`s why they list, as part of their demands on their website, that there be a $20 minimum wage and that they get that `wage` even if they are unemployed.

"Also, EVERY media outlet is biased, you don`t think CNN and every other political commentary channel don`t set people up with questions?"

True but CCN at leasts tries to follow the standards of journalism. They are respected around the world. Channels like Fox News and MSNBC are just pure sensationalism.

talk about working until you die to pay off debt, what about the debt Obama has piled on? This guy being at protests all the time, making a spectacle suggests he may not have a job to pay those taxes. Also, EVERY media outlet is biased, you don`t think CNN and every other political commentary channel don`t set people up with questions?

The interviewer can`t manipulate a response...absolutely correct! That`s why the interviewee has all the editing rights, can make his own questions, and is never censored to match the views of the company doing the interview...right...

What mal_BB said. Fox was out to get a negative soundbite period. The fact that they didn`t air any of the interview proves that. The guy explained why people were out there. Something Fox has no interest in reporting. They just want to portray the protestors as a mob. It is sensationalism and about as far from real reporting as possible.

This movement is bigger then just this guy. This movement is bigger then just Wall Street. People in cities all over America are waking up and saying no more to the corporate greed that has plagued this nation. While many brush of the protesters as anarchists, they fail to see how corrupt our government has become.
This is not a left/right issue. We wanted change but nothing happened. The people have learned if they want change, they have to go out and make it happen. And oh yea, this is just the beginning.
Protests are being planned in other nations. And the elite are afraid. They send their media and their security guards to beat us down and divide us up. Race, religion, orientation, nationalism, political views etc. They believe we are peons that need to be controlled. Lets pray things get better.

markust: I can`t make you respond in anyway other than the way you wish to respond, and you just did so with your "Shaking my head in disbelief and walking away."

If you don`t like the way the interviewer phrases a question you can either take apart their question, answer it directly but with a new phrasing, or refuse to answer it. But firing shots at the interviewer or their employer, to distract people from the question, is NOT a valid response.

The interviewer can`t manipulate a response?? seriously? That`s their job! To get through the camera the ideologies supported by the network. If they do an interview, and the subject matter disagrees with the networks viewpoint in any way, IT DOES NOT MAKE IT TO AIR. This is the fundamental basis of alot of the media. With corporations such as FOX, the truth is never allowed to spoil a good story.

LoveToSpooge: Ever notice how I get lame trolls from anonymous accounts with fewer than 20 comments, all the time ?

I`ve seen this vile tactic before, making hundreds of troll accounts and using them to make others believe the victims comment is unpopular by weight of numbers. It`s happened to people on youtube, facebook, myspace, and others.

AJ: "...should have said "Did not answer the interviewer`s question, and went off an a tangent that was inaccurate.."

Fox News get liberals on their shows that do that on a regular basis. Most won`t answer questions directly and revert to polemics or long diatribes to avert attention away from the topic.

This guy is NOT being clever, he`s just repeating the same dodgy sh|t others have said.

Political interviews shouldn`t be played like a game of dodgeball. Just because you can artfully dodge a question doesn`t mean you`ve won.

"Fair and Balanced like a thumb on the scales."

I loved that line. What gets people so upset with Fox News is they pretend to not be biased when they so clearly are. If they would just change their name to Fox Conservative News people would be cool.

@nogroupthink: You have that opinion because he disagrees with you? You didn`t provide any other foundation for your opinion, so I`m making that assumption...

@LillianDulci: Yeah, moveon.org is definitely an agenda-based organization. For some people to expect a non-biased report from them would be like expecting a political candidate to root for his opposing party. However like you said, Fox News colors itself as an unbiased news organization and so it is fair to criticize them.

I get emails from moveon.org and I don`t agree with every cause they support (a lot of them I consider frivolous really, when there are much more important things going on), but the last thing I`d do is criticize them for being biased or having an agenda because that should be obvious to anyone who has heard of the organization.

yusuksomuch, huh? If an organization pretends to be unbiased despite having a bias (i.e. fox news) then it`s fair to criticize them for being biased because they claim they`re not. If an organization doesn`t make any attempt to appear unbiased, then it`s a waste of breath (or waste of time spent typing) to criticize them for being biased when they are clear about that fact already. I`m very biased in my political views and if I were debating someone and they told me I`m biased, I`d respond with a "duh" and that I have no reason to be unbiased. Being biased itself isn`t a bad thing. If you disagree with what they support then disagree with that, not the fact that they`re biased when they`ve been clear about that fact all along.

MoveOn - the organisation funded by a billionaire criminal, remember every time you see the name.

These idiots protest companies and people who have made money legally by fair, open contract (and some companies that covered losses by unfair and potentially illegal or unconstitutional government support, I agree with them there). Much of the protest is astroturf funded by unions and George Soros.

George Soros made a lot of money illegally by insider trading, and in other case by lobbying for unfair and potentially illegal or unconstitutional government support.

The unions make money in part by unfair, immoral, sometimes illegal and sometimes potentially unconstitutional government support.

So the protesters are being supported by people as bad as the worst targets of their protests. Many of the remaining targets of those protests have done nothing wrong, and in fact have performed very useful service.
