You guys made it relevant when you tried to redefine the image of OWS into filthy, drug-abusing vandals at every opportunity.
The main point here is that NO ONE can say he's any of those things, or that he hasn't earned the right to make the statements he's making.
Feel free to disagree with him, but now you'll have to work a little harder to make the meth-addicted bongo drummer things stick. Not a whole lot harder, if history serves, but at least a teensy bit harder.

Curious, why didn't he take his stand at OWS Philly? Imagine how torn former co-workers would be in having to arrest him for taking a stand?

As LightSpeedDriver said above, this guy is a real "Captain America". I am glad to see that more and more people that are known and respected are making their voices heard in this. The OWS protests may be the most pure "American spirit" that I have seen in my long life as We, the People are taking the responsibility of doing something about our country.
If you don't like the way things are, then do something to change it. And they are.
his guy lays out OWS for what it really is.....

Did you listen to what he is saying? He wants to CONTROL every transaction done by corporate America. How, and who exactly will CONTROL these transactions?...
You see, right there is the fallacy behind this whole OWS movement, you people claim it is not some sort of socialist/liberal dream, yet that is exactly what it is.
