To call your own fellow countrymen who are out in the streets demanding a change for the better in this crumbling nation is pathetic and you should be ashamed of yourself.

Put down the guns and pick up a clue.

If you believe it is necessary to be violent to get your point across, as OWS has proven time and time again with actions(not just polls like these), then they will find no friend in me.

They may be fellow Americans. But they do not share my values.

Yes, I've seen "own fellow countrymen" made up of communists, socialists, and various hangers-on destroying any hope for change.

Breaking the laws of the land, rioting, and in general, making a nuisance of yourself isn't going to bring about change it's going to bring about an ass-kicking.

I agree that significant elements of the last 100 years of banking/investing control need to be brought to an end.

Can you open a brokerage account and trade off-hours in commodities? Assuming you have the cash? No you can't. You know why?

First: You grew up in a liberal-controlled school system that never taught you the basics of finance and economics. It's not hard, It's not taught. But I'll bet you can put a condom on a banana!

Second: You grew up in a conservative-controlled world that won't let you do that unless you have the right connections, and you won't get those connections unless you're born into the right family OR you've done a PhD's worth of research into finance.

The system is fine. it's the jerks that control it that need to face the law. 14th amendment should cover it nicely. Rioting isn't going to fix this.

There's outrage to be had, but living in a tent outside a capital building just makes you look like an idiot. This war needs to be fought in the courts and during elections. nothing wrong with protesting, but protesteth too much and you become a mockery.

There is no way I would be a part of that world. There is no reason for this country to re run on gambling, on winning and losing. There is no reason for it to be run on competition. These mechanics are for board games. You have to know it's wrong to play games with people's lives.
