After being in Dublin, Athens, Cairo and Beirut recently I am watching the action on Wall St. and the first thing that I am struck by is that activists there believe that they just figured out this ‘Wall St. is killing us narrative’ and that their protest is the most important in the world suddenly. Yes, it’s ON WALL ST. but Wall St. itself, that is to say, the derivatives business and the WMFD’s, are no longer there. They are traded in powerful hubs in various global hot spots with London being the epicenter more than Wall St. But putting that aside, let’s face it, the US is by and large the beneficiary of the financial terrorism it creates and it’s tough to see these protesters as victims. Maybe next year when gas is $7 or $8 and unemployment has doubled again we’ll see something a bit more rough and tumble. But welcome NY to the global fight… You’ve got a toe in the water, let’s see what develops.
My, oh my. We have a real fascist online boys and girls.
often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
So rare to capture one in the act of puking out the regular fascist survival of the fittest propaganda.
So how does that fascist shirt feel bobby joe? Is the fit ok? Are you sure you will look good at the next rally?

I have gotten a display of what is wrong with American politics: no one knows what the hell they are talking about.
I do not pity you, your kind is too common in todays US, I pity your children forced to carry on your defunct genes.. You seem to belong in a mental institution, but by some twist of fate you walk free in the streets amongst ordinary mentally healthy humans.
Usually, pople expressing themselves like you do and with this specific language you have used in several comments, do have difficult mental problems (probably severe schizofrenia combined with some sort of brain damage). The combination of this is usually various forms of sociopathy.
This thread was originally about the cause and status quo of the current WS demonstration. You seem to believe people care what you think of them (as subhumans to your superior presence LOL).
I believe I do not need to say anything more than this as by now most can see what you are alright?

Not really irked here, but thank you for your concern. Not a fat cat, not eating pizza and I don’t drink alcohol. On Monday, I will get up and go to work. The dirty hippies and disaffected, professional agitators present in New York may, or may not, be still littering the streets. It won’t affect me a bit.
This is probably the point where you should threaten me with being ‘strung up’ or some other act of violence. You know, ‘cause your so peaceful.

Go right ahead and look at Libya. The protesters there - in all of their righteousness, are exterminating black Africans as we speak. Millions are being evicted - if not slaughtered in the streets.
That is the kind of world you invite into the U.S. with your attitude.

Which is why I will squash your little 'revolution.
For what its worth, I support USDOR. I also support GOOOH. And any other entity that seeks to break the status quo.
And I am no dirty hippy. I am an accountant. I wear a tie to work every day, serve on my local Chamber of Commerce Board, participate in Rotary, and provide leadership to my community.
Too late sunshine
the cards are dealt and the hand is in play
The deceit and lies should have been punished 2 years ago , instead there was reward and protection
time now that you also must take back some of what you exported to the ME for the greed of the banksters and there pals.
It might not come with this small attempt to bring some justice , but come it will , and when people start to miss their 3 meals you can bet the blood will flow .

I will tell you what, I have read the last 2 pages of this thread, hoping to get some summary of what is happening (Twitter is literally crapping itself over the whole #OccupyWallStreet thing represented in the OP). Instead I have gotten a display of what is wrong with American politics: no one knows what the hell they are talking about.
