Special interests are trying to hijack these protests. Since a lot
of people know something is wrong but don't know exactly how
they got there, it's easy to do.
Rather than b*tch and moan about it, why not get out there and
educate them on the FED? There are others out there who are

I agree with many of your points, but is some others that I do not agree, but at the end, I have lost so much faith on my fellow Americans and our political system that I am just sitting in my home waiting to see where the OWS will take us.
I did have a lot of faith on Obama in the beginning and on the Tea party but hell what disappointment they have prove to be.
NEW YORK, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Anti-Wall Street demonstrations swelled on Wednesday, as nurses, transit workers and other union members joined a rally at the heart of New York's financial district to complain about unfairness in the U.S. economy.
College students walked out of classes in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement, which has grown in less than three weeks from a ragged group in downtown Manhattan to protesters of all ages demonstrating from Seattle to Tampa.
The protesters object to the Wall Street bailout in 2008, which they say left banks enjoying huge profits while average Americans suffered under high unemployment and job insecurity with little help from the federal government.
By late afternoon the crowd in New York numbered at least 5,000 and was growing. Union members made up a good portion of the demonstration, which was more than twice as large as the largest previous crowd last weekend of about 2,000.

I agree with a lot of your points, but I am ignorant of the supposed cry to shred the Constitution. Most of what I hear involves upholding the Constitution. IMO the document has been shredded, in part, long ago. I think the problem lies in any society who would stand by and allow the government to create and give the Fed all of the power they have today. Talk about a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Another fall day in Washington, D.C., another protest. First there was Occupy Wall Street. Beginning Thursday, there will also be Stop the Machine.
The capital's version of the Occupy Wall Street demonstration has been held in Washington’s McPherson Square since Oct. 1. Known as Occupy DC, the event has drawn about 10 to 50 people a day, with protesters attending a 6 p.m. meeting and waving signs at people as they leave their K Street offices.
Lacy MacAuley, who has been participating in the Occupy DC demonstration, said she thinks many of the protesters in that group will move to the Stop the Machine demonstration.
The goals of the protests are similar. Occupy Wall Street has been decrying corporate greed and various social ills; Stop the Machine will push for a drastic reduction in corporate influence in the nation and, according to the group’s website, support “peace and social, economic and environmental justice.”
