'Keep fighting in your non existent war against those who actually produce things.`
Wall Street doesn`t produce anything, it`s a service industry.

Well done to occupy for doing a fantastic PR job, they`re so hated, people have sided with the dodgy dealers and corrupt bankers.

mctabbin - that is a great idea, except that there is no way the banks would allow that. they have already shown that they are in cahoots together. they spend massive amounts to make sure "their" laws get passed and if someone even got this type of idea some sort of of backing they would make sure it would become illegal. just look at how they have been screwing us with intrest rates AND THEY WERE CAUGHT DOING IT! did you ever hear of anyone being punished? thats because they bought their way out of it.

and we get NOTHING done

Honestly that would be a lot better then year after year of bad legislation. The purpose of congress (and parliaments in general) is to make lawmaking difficult.

They're still dissastified with their current predicament enough to persistently protest until they get arrested? It`s not 2008 anymore. Clearly, their time could be better spent either by getting together to create a start-up to invent their own banking business company with a better business model. Or finding a job... Heck, even voluteer gigs to build up resume.

It`s interesting how passive people protest and complain, when they are clearly capable of thinking outside the box. But since they are getting arrested. Then something is wrong with their protesting strategy as people who do think outside the box, are above the law. Work smart, not hard people!

If the problem is that business has bedded government, then we must fault government. Business does not claim to be moral nor to serve the interests of all; rather, business openly claims to care primarily about profit.

On the other hand, government claims to serve the interests of all constituents. Contrary to business, government openly claims to be moral.

Therefore, if an immoral union occurs between the two, we must blame government - who has falsely claimed to serve our interests. Business was simply behaving the way they have always claimed to - in their own interests.
