Yes, I agree with that serviceman. These men & women did not fight for the fat-cat corporate wall street elite, they fought for America, and as far as I'm concerned, these fat-cats are nothing more than domestic terrorists', and should be dealt with accordingly.

I think we both want the same thing but we're going about it differently.

Imagine a patient.
They have a tumour.

You want the patient to feel more comfortable by prescribing meds that'll make them feel better.

I want to remove the tumour.

But we have millions of doctors hovering over one patient. Why not just do both?

Should that occur, then when the dust settles and the smoke clears, the REAL hell to pay will start for those string-pullers I mentioned above.


That's all most of us want to hear from the rest of you. Thanks, man.

The creation of the FR specifically moved all aspects of currency out of the Constitutional control of Congress and then began their journey of perpetual deceit, thievery, market manipulating and speculation.
psssst, i never said anything about Congress participating ... they can accompany the FR as far as i'm concerned.



I didn't mean "back". I just meant that getting it into their hands was part of the lottery of demands. And it is part of the solution because you can't vote for eliminating something that isn't a part of government. Naturally, it would operate better under congressional control than under private corporate control. Their demands are evolving as they get closer to the day they engage "in direct action at the capitol complex" but here's their current list: Linky To The Listy

You know (my commie-marxist-evil-foe), we may be on the same side.
You're after those that give bribes.

I'm after the weasels that take them.

And as it is those weasels that continue to write laws, they will remain my primary focus.

Diogenes looked for an honest man.

It's time we took up the mantle.


YES! This is what I've been saying! You guys are the Starsky to our Hutch. The Ken to our Ryu. The Micky to our Mallory! One action does not detract from the other. DO BOTH!

The protest shouldn't be on Wall Street, it should be in front of the Capital. Our leaders in D.C. made those banks give out bad loans and then loaned them money to keep the heads of those banks from talking, IMO.

Progressive ideas got us here and progressives will escalate it! Anyone down there is just trying to stir sh#^ up!


Where have you been? Wall Street Bankers own Washington DC and the Congress, and have since 1934 when America went bankrupt, and the power to coin money was given over to a private banking cartel, the Federal Reserve. This is the enemy, and the protesters are at the right place.

Actually they indirectly fought for the fat-cats considering the globalists (PNAC) were the ones who orchestrated these wars for regional control, and profit....

I guess you don't know much about the US Marines long, proud and illustrious history. They had often led the way courageously into unknowns - Normandy, Okinawa, Iwo Jima, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Iraq,etc, and had never faltered.

Let us not go inter unit rivalries here, or international military pettiness squabbles. We all have a common cause here, that is far greater than any petty issue for distractions.

And in this instance, at least a member or members of the US Marines and other US units had courageously put down in writing and made a public stand for what they believe in, in solidarity with others, for the sake of fellow amercans if not mankind itself, as the root of our woes stemmed from the casino called stock exchanges around the world, with bankers using their misplaced trusted massive funds as the 'house'.

Peace.

Corruption in wall street is only a symptom of the disease.

If you want to cure a disease you need to attack the root source of the problem..


In other words, occupy the District of Columbia.

Whew, what a lengthy read from page one till now. I'm fascinated by how many peoples views differ.

I'm stuck on the fact that the OP now says "headed to WALLSTREET to protect". Huh?

It's 15 military, with no guns or weapons, JOINING in a protest. How are they going to protect anything? They are serving in their capacity as a citizen, and are under no orders whatsoever.

The whole protest is nothing more than a flea on the back of the proverbial "Beast". Sigh.

Most people in this thread have some good theories, but much of the banter simply exemplifies the communal feeling of helplessness that we all share. There are no solutions, only small steps.

Is this sort of protest a step in the right direction? I'll reserve judgement there, and be content to call it a small step. Better than nothing at all.

if we are to accept and act on this sentiment ...

Also, even if these people are disorganized and unsure of what they actually want, at least they are doing something.

why complain about Congress or DC or the Fed ?? ... after all, at least they're doing something, right?

this is the "all or nothing" ultimatum environment i cannot support.
yes, they are doing something but if they aren't sure what they're doing, how can anyone else be expected to follow such a lead?
eyes closed while strutting over a cliff doesn't even sound appealing.

So to the members of our armed forces who are saying "I protect America not Wall Street," here's my question to you...

I own stocks. I'm a proud red-blooded American. I'm counting on said stocks doing well so I can afford to retire someday . . . and so are many Americans like me. If you aren't protecting Wall Street you are attacking ME. Please explain your actions as these are my American assets!


When the protestors want to seize someone else's assets it's bad news.
When the protestors want to seize MY assets it is pick-pocketing.

This is akin to thieves protesting against a security guard.
Great, you own stocks. Super. Meanwhile there are 50 million people who are wondering if they can make their rent or even their next meal. Get over yourself and stop being so selfish.


Who are you to tell me what I can do with the money I have legitimately EARNED through working?

The final destination of your moral code is me being robbed at gunpoint.

From each according to his ability to each according to his needs, right? So in your mind NEED is the highest moral virtue. If your moral code is correct we should all lie down and die. Why should I work hard when all I really should do is be neeeeeedy?

Calling me selfish is a compliment.

now, you are really missing the point.
the Only thing that 'demand' (if presented in the end) will accomplish is the transfer of the worlds' debt to the taxpayers of America ... if you are aware of this, are you saying that's ok with you?

i'm for dismantling (in whatever form necessary) the entire structure known as the FR
giving control of this beast to Congress would be the biggest mistake in history next to allowing it to be established.
talk about impeding generations who never contributed to or benefited from the debt originally. wow

Lets be real for a second.... Are we to expect ANY changes from these protests? I'd like to think that the 10,000 protesters would make a difference, but I just dont see our corrupted system being altered by a small group of people...I hope I'm wrong...

If we want change, these protests will need to turn violent.......just saying

The split of the military has begun. this is more like the late 1850's-early-60's rather than the late 1860's. This is going to be big.

Wall Street and the super rich took to much from us and now an American french revolution has began in earnest.

They can't lock people up for protesting in America like they did in Britain a few moths back. If this thing takes hold it will change the whole world.

I bet not only the elites are scared right now but the impoverished billionaire cheering tea PARTY crowed is freaking shaking in their Chinese made Wal Mart bought shoes.


Billionaires can fly out of the country like the Binladens the day after 9/11, but the Tea PARTY crowed can't really go anywhere for more than a few months on travel visas. I wonder what it is going to be like for them in the coming years?
I guess they can plea political asylum.

Hopefully we can expropriate all Koch brother assets. It would be nice to have all their high producing wells owned by the USG putting all that money into the national Treasury for the benefit of the poor and middle classes instead of financing Murdoch's worldwide media purchases. A media empire purposely constructed so to be used for Koch brother pro billionaire propaganda dissimulation purposes. Dissimulation of message tools on how the deceived can make their own rope in order to hang themselves with.

People often end up being arrested for protesting in American, read your history books! How a movement handles being arrested either rallys the public to their cause or turns the public against them.

I don't think the Tea Party is shaking in their boots at all, in fact if this movement would pull its head out of where it currently is and look around clearly they COULD gain the support of the *fat tea partiers*

These protestors are being duped by the creeps funding their protest. They are the VERY fat cats the protestors are protesting.

The actions of the protestors in the coming days will determine if the country gets behind them or people begin to defend themselves against the likes of them.

And those were non-violent, so just imagine what would happen if one of those police officers tries to do to the veterans what they did to non-veterans.


As a veteran, I feel a little uneasy to see this separation placed between veterans and non-veterans. It is an embarrassment to see how any citizen is treated by police under these circumstances, be they veterans or not.
I agree. I was just making the point that there's possible they can pull anything on the veterans (or even with the veterans around, for that matter) without it damaging their reputation heavily.

And with posts like these people most likely continue on laughing. Making outrageous accusations without any proof is not going to get many people to take you seriously, especially since they sound like something you took off a right-wing site.

I think you are wrong. What needs to happen is the protests need to turn massive and country wide.
They need to be prolonged, and most of all they need to have clear goals.

Anything less will be dismissed, or worse............. used against us.
