    Re: Big Win for 'Occupy Wall Street' Protesters?

    I'm gonna try to go to one of the protests in Manhattan tomorrow. Either an afternoon march or the big protest in Times Square. It should be tons of fun, and I will hold a sign saying this:

    NO- Communism/Fascism

    YES- Social democracy/equality

    What puts us in debt is over spending right? YES! The government is giving how much money they ask for so therefore its the governments fault if they overspend!
    Anyways your saying the CEO's don't deserve the fruit of their risks? They risk money and run a business. Now do they work hard I'm pretty sure at one point in time they did. Now do I agree that they should have so much excess? No.
    You fail to realize how people get elected to the government.
    They make promises. They point fingers at the other party. If a candidate shouts loud enough he'll be elected. In other words, advertising. Advertising is how they get elected, so obviously, a billionaire has an advantage over your average middle class working American. Even if they aren't in politics, these guys can funnel in their money to manipulate the media, and thus, the government.

    These are truly pathetic people. This is what happens when you don't bother to raise your children.
    This is the best recuritment tool the Tea Party could ever hope for.

    Along with this,

    Wait!?!?! You mean lobbyist help elect government officials!?!?! Oh lawd jesus christ I did not know.
    A billionaire has an advantage over a middle class working american? Well of course. The good thing is both democrats and republicans have a lot of rich people for both sides. So whats your point? My first statement "Lol. They don't tax em' enough?" was sarcasm. I'm against high taxes. But I do believe you have to pay ceaser whats ceaser's. I know politicians make promises and I know that majority of the time they don't go through. But its still the governments fault for over spending. And the rich people shouldn't be blamed for the overspending of the government.

    To make you happy, I'd say yes, but that would be a lie.

    IMO it's none of the governments business.......until that business comes crawling for tax payers dollars.
