Opinions anyone? The more I hear about it the more I appreciate it. Yeah, sure it's like the tea partiers, except these people seem to be more invested and willing to stay to make a point. It's all Rush and Beck can whine about lately, and despite the few advocating anarchy and communism, the main message seems to be about releasing this country from the strangle hold that business and corporations have on government. It's been a long time coming...

Agreed.  If you are working, you probably aren't protesting.  I will sympathize with their frustration with government bailing out failing businesses, while screwing over all the people the same businesses screwed over.  I don't think government should be helping anyone, and needs to get the hell out of the economy.  If they don't, then we have just straight up chrony capitalism.

That would be me, without the e.  Government sure is propping up a failing industry, that wouldn't have gotten so large except for government.  If the issue is "too big to fail" tell me why we didn't enforce monopoly legislation against the banks?  Oh that's right, the banks own our government.  All wall street did was buy up and create a demand for the clearly fraudulent financial products the banks and mortgage industry were selling.  Did they not do their due diligence, absolutely, and any investor who bought that shit should be suing the shit out of whoever sold them a mortgage backed security.  Absolutely no one went to jail in this whole fiasco, even though there was clear fraud.  Once again, this is because corporate influence has bought out the government.  


And we should have let those businesses fail.  It's the only real way for everything to have corrected itself.  Instead the tax payer got to pay for the risk the banks and wall street took on, while still allowing them to keep their profits.  I don't think we should take their profits either, just that if they fuck up, we let them fail.  The government could give a fuck about the average American.   

It sure has. I am completely behind it as it stands, I have also signed Dylan Ratigan's petition for a Constitutional amendment removing money from politics. You can find the petition, as well as a rough draft of the proposed amendment, at www.getmoneyout.com. Get your voices heard! 
dunno if exact but noticed this on fbook

This is now a global movement which, to my mind, is a rebellion against the unholy alliance of governments and corporations.
The question is how these people have time to protest but not look for work? I consider most of these protesters (especially the hardcore) as anti-American socialist/communists and conspiracy theory loons. During the weekends the labor unions organize and bring their people - but on the weekdays they truly seem to consist of loons.
Excellent observation.  Protest itself is a valid method of expression for change.
i consider you  to be an anti american fascist.
Sassan, what is your evidence that protesters are anti-American socialist/communists and conspiracy theory loons?
