you said it best. We need to stand up to the fat cats that control everything from newspapers, oil and other main industries that effect us. If we have to then screw the walk lets riot. It is by no means the most effective way to get anything done. But it does get there attention rather quickly.
There are more of us then there are of them. We are more numerous than even the military

Wow, well... you can't entirely blame wall st for wasting trillions of dollars, blame Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Aid, Gm, but not just The Stock Gurus. Their greedy but, well god they've always been greedy, the job may actually require you to be greedy.

You seem to forget Obama inherited this mess. blame goes to Bush/Cheney and their above the law politics.

Wall Street? Bah! If they really wanted to march on someone to protest what is happening .. they should march on DC. If anyone is going to be marched on it should be Barney Frank, Pelosi and Obama.

You forgot to add, Bernanke and the lame duck we have now as the secretary of the Treasury Department is nothing more than the poster boy for the federal Reserve.

this isn't a Bush created problem or an Obama created problem.

take the time to go to the House and Senate web sites to see who voted for the "stimulus" bill and/or bailout bill 1, despite the overwhelming numbers of citizens that clogged Congressional phone lines in vain wanting their "representatives" to vote against it. look at votes that involved loosening oversight of banking. you will see that members of BOTH parties voted for them in spite of what their constituency asked them to do.

this all started years ago even before Bush. realize just how long this country has been running a deficit. it would be no different if you or I tried to live on our credit without ever paying it back. the credit line has been used up and the bubble just reached it's breaking point.

seems obvious with whom their allegiances lie. republican or democrat, makes no difference

/sarcasm on

I know, how about we blame the previous administration in charge so we NEVER hold those in office accountable. Ever! A never ending system of blame the last guy or the last party!

But But Clinton!
But But Bush!
But But Democrats!
But But Republicans!
Etc Etc Etc!

Whatever you do, don't accept that the career politicians, in office for decades having anything to do with it!

YES! That will fix it! This is America!

/sarcasm off

Can we hold Obama accountable in 4 years after the damage has been done and he's out of office? When can we? You obviously don't want us to hold him accountable right now.

Here's a pop quiz for you.

What party directed and rode the missile accelerating to the ground while screaming 'YeeHA!' for the past decade in California again?

Whose watchful eyes did CDS's come into being under?

Who again voted for the bailout that almost all of you were against in the first place? Who voted it in with absolutely NO transparency in it?

Who again is extending the bailout policy moreso than Bush did in his terms?

Who again appointed one of the key members in this whole fraud and problem as the man to fix it as Treasury Secretary?

Who again wants porkulus .. er stimulus bill II before the ink has barely dried on the first one?

Which party has been in almost complete control of Congress the past 2 years?

Whose signature is on the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Services Modernization Act?

Which party wanted cheap affordable homes for all?

Who allowed leverage ratios to go so high, and who still hasn't repealed that?

God. Enough of the party politics. Enough of shifting blame. Hold the people that are in now in office accountable. Is that so hard? Or do you fall for it every time? Wake up already and put the blame to those who are in charge right now today.

Both parties are wicked and corrupt and work together behind the scenes and are against each other for show. Example: California Prop 1A Tax Extension Fiasco. They BOTH need the boot.

Apparently you do fall for it. Take a look at the Perot/Bush/Clinton debate. Clinton too was promising the ever present "change" within the first 10 minutes. What did Clinton change again? Fast forward to 2008, and you guys bought it hook, line, and sinker yet again.

Obama can restore market confidence with the giving a clear plan and doing the right thing -- and refuses to do so. He has a full congress of his party that can and would pass anything. He won't do squat to fix it, hasn't done squat to fix it, yet it's still blame Bush?

Instead all of those rat bastards in D.C are on a drunken spending spree, spending your money, with your Messiah leading the helm holding his glass of wine high up in the white house catering to Earth Wind and Fire and Stevie Wonder.

He's a part of the very system that's the problem. The sooner you and others realize this, the better and real "change" can begin.

Go ahead though. March on Wall Street. Never mind that marching on Wall Street does absolutely nothing. Those people on that floor for the most part didn't cause it. They work hard just like you do. They go home at night to family and friends just like you do.

However your duly elected representatives however did cause this mess. They can't pay their taxes, take bribes, repealed decade old protective bank legislation, ignored you the electorate, block you out of the process, and have worked together to polarize the nation so you can't see past party color or name.

This march is so much better to direct anger where it's needed. The 535 so people in office that caused this mess. Just 10,000 vs 535 is great odds. Toss in a couple million, pitchforks and torches, and you have yourself an epic win for this nation and yourself.

Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different result
