Basically - it's a given that large groups will persist until they eventually do something that causes everyone to go: "Oh... #..... RUN!" - And for some people, that threshold can be quite high, especially when propped by the sense of being supported by "other people in the group" (which really gets into 'groups-within-a-group' - but that's another discussion, as well).
I'm looking forward to the day that the Banksters and Corrupt Politicians/CEOs get to that point. Any thoughts on when that group will finally turn tail and skeedaddle?
Of course - you've already demonstrated you don't understand the problem, do not desire to, and simply want a target for the lynch mob.
OK, so as an American, are you happy with the direction of the country?
Do you think the current President has done anything to make your life and the overall state of the country any better?
I DO understand the problem, thank you very much, and I've spent hours -- EDIT TO CLARIFY: Days, days, weeks, months on end -- researching it, studying it, contemplating it, looking at it from all different angles, debating it with educated, smart people who hold various points of view.
I want to know when the greedy, morally bankrupt money-grubbers and thieves are going to turn on each other for once and for all, and perhaps some of them start giving a crap about the people whom they are enslaving and starving in the name of their "investors."
What, are you a big-banker?
You have some serious issues, if so. If not, you are behaving in a pompous and confrontational manner that is unworthy of further attention.
Don't think you've got a monopoly on the reality of the situation, bub. It makes you look ignorant. I've been on this earth for over 50 years. I'm no dimwit.
The PROBLEM is GREED and DISREGARD for fellow human beings who are suffering.

Is it possible that your anger generates your lack of self-esteem and diminishes your own viewpoint?
How much material have you read?
What can you tell me about Mortgage Backed Securities? About Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? About Congressional debates regarding Fannie and Freddie as far back as 2001?

At 23, I'm quickly running out of peers with no shortage of victims.
So you are a mere child, who can not get along with others.
You should have learned those skills in grammar school.
In time, perhaps you will learn to drop the ego, and listen.

*yawn* Like I said. People are stupid. The only time they ever approached me was to get an answer to a question they couldn't figure out, or to tease me.
Wow.....here we have the PERFECT example of the "educated...idiot".
Child....have you ever heard of Ted Kazinski?
Otherwise known as the uni-bomber.
He also had a high IQ, and also had a very LOW level of WISDOM.......EXACTLY like YOU.
Truly, you need a guardian of some sort, you are not stable.
Intelligence (IQ as you measure it) is NOTHING without wisdom. You are still a child, and you need guidance.

Instead of smoke bombs, maybe the Occupy guys would get their point across better by throwing genetically modified seeds into the Obama family's GMO free, organic garden.
That would be a nice response to all of the lobbying that gives Monsanto the power to control our food supply. Let's see how they like it when they are forced to choke down poison.edit on 17-1-2012 by Q:1984A:1776 because: (no reason given)
