How about David Rockefeller's home? That scumbag needs to get what's coming to him. I saw a youtube video recently where a guy walked right up to him as he was leaving with a bodyguard. Rockefeller clan = the .000000001% and pure evil.
And the Rothschilds in England.... I read somewhere that they operate outside of English law on their estates, as allowed.

The diference between marching and protesting in front of a home may also be the difference between being a legitamate movement and perceived thuggry.
Which is completely swaying off my original point of something positive is to be gained out of this movement:
IE: raising awareness
Awareness of corruption
Awareness of thug-like tactics on people brought about by your movement.
Thanks for answering my questions.
Should be interesting to watch.

It's all a bit French revolution for my liking, I mean it wont be long till they set up a guillotine in Zuccotti Park. This movement has too many similarities with the ideology of the French Revolution that I can't put my support behind it with these types of tactics in play. The more I see of the OWS protesters the less I like, which is a shame as I agree that there are massive problems in the world and I park much of the blame on the global banking cartel that runs our planet, but I can not stand by these types of tactics or the far leftist rhetoric I hear being spouted.

Not quite sure if that was sarcasm?
The more money these people have, the less money there is to go around to the rest of the population. There is less to work for, when deals go bad they do not take a pay cut, they sack someone. No argument exists to justify the amassing of millions and billions in wealth. No bugger works that hard!!!!!
The '1%' take opportunities away from the young, talented of the '99%' and give it to their mates, family and business partners mates and family. You can work hard all your life and never quite reach comfortable or certain security (99%) Hard work does not guarantee success if you are part of the 99%.
You are arguing for hard working people to continue working longer, harder for less and less whilst the manipulators reap the benefits. All I hear on bloomberg is how there is so much money to be made during a recession, yeah maybe but not for us because we are the 99%.
Why do some people just not understand? Are you the 'hard working' 1% who really do not get the reality of economics? Only idiots are capable of being so callous, get someone to go through the math with you.

I am now convinced this movement isnt about ending corruption, its about ending the rich and redistribution of wealth

A faux demonstration for a faux revolution.
A real revolutionary would recoginize that challenging the money power requires a voluntary lowering of their standards of living. It takes an empire subjugating the planet to provide the standard of living Americans have become accustomed to, so anything short of demanding a complete withdrawal from 700 plus military bases is transparently hogwash.
These "spontaneous" protests are simply the American version of the various color revolutions that have replaced the old boss with the new boss the world over. They've got "CIA" written all over them.
To fight greed, one must simply no longer be greedy. The only way to stop the beast is to stop feeding it. Stop buying the corporations' crap, earn as little taxable income as possible, grow your own food, trade when possible.
Throwing a fit in the street will only undermine the message of the alleged movement...whatever that is.

All very good suggestions for those who have not crawled up out of debt and sustain themselves without a taxable income or mortgage payment. Live within your means and raise your own food. I have an aquaponics system in my greenhouse for our fish and veggies. I am still working on my solar power, but should be totally off the grid next year. I am not rich, but I am not lazy either. There are ways to get yourself right, but paying for bailouts is too much for my poor little brain to comprehend.
If I were too big to fail I would die of a massive heart attack.

This is the same group ( working families of America ) that protested The AIG ceo in his front yard. That group is a Marxist group or communist group, I'm not sure which one they are. Anyway this does nothing, this type action will gain nothing at all. It's kind of stupid if you ask me. If this is the best OWS can do then this protest will fail. When winter comes it will be over anyway.edit on 13-10-2011 by SJE98 because: (no reason given)
