They need more support. Everyone in america needs to be out there in the damn streets protesting. Everyone needs to drop their jobs and lock this system up and bring this ride to a screetching halt. This is exactly the way to galvanize americans to wake up out of their self medicated delusory worlds.

This is down right scary stuff if this Wall Street protesting of more unions is true and grows real big.This is exactly like the stuff going on during world war 1 and 2.Some of these kids are clueless what they are getting involved in.There is good unions and they do help and protesting their rights can be a good thing.This thing is calling for entire corporations to be dismantled and major revolutions.Never seen this kind fo stuff in my life and do not be gullible if this gets worse and worse.It could turn like the middle east revolutions which is major major dangerous.edit on 30-9-2011 by Jobeycool because: (no reason given)

As for the "Unions", or organized crime......everything they touch, they destroy...and "Guess who gets to pay the price?"
The watts powering your machine were created in a powerhouse built by Union Craftsmen. The power was carried to you on lines built by Union Linemen. When a storm knocks down those lines at 3am it is Union Linemen that leave their families and risk their lives so that you can charge your cellphone while you sleep. The data network you use to share your opinion goes through data centers build by Union Wiremen. When you bought your computer, it was brought to you on Union freight along with your food and your panties. When hurricanes destroy our Oil refineries, it is Union Craftsmen that travel across the nation to rebuild them while living in tent cities. Sorry that we have done so much to "destroy" your comfort zone.
Or maybe I'm completely wrong and you have built your own self sufficient power generating plant on your property. After which you built your own computer from parts at radio shack and somehow miracled your post onto ATS servers.

Unions have destroyed just as much of our industrial base as wall street has.
You like not having to work 61-hour workweeks as an average? You like weekends? You like that children aren't allowed to be exploited for slave labor? You like not being fired if you are out because of an injury or sickness? You like equal opportunities in the workplace?
You can thank unions for all of those. If it weren't for unions, we would still be living like we were in the industrial revolution. We owe them.

And if the revolution starts, who care who starts it and why? The point is it is starting. Good or bad, started by whom and for what purpose is irrelevant at this stage of the game. Get behind the revolution, join the masses and make your voice heard. Nothing will change if we sit back and arm chair it.

And right you are, however remember that your allies in this fight are also not a violent ally. I would venture to say that if they tried to usurp the people they manipulated, there would be a very violent reaction to it!

You really want banks to pay attention. While your protesting stop in at your bank pull out your money and close your accounts. That's where the real protest will begin. If people started closing accounts in mass numbers, bankers wouldn't be smiling anymore. Your money is their money as long as it sits in their bank.
When you take your money back they lose control. Crooked banks will fall quickly. IMO this is where the revolution begins.
For those of you that don't think banks are destroying this country you are dead wrong. Banks for years have made it their mission to put you in debt. And they have succeeded.
