    Yes...THATS what they really want. Because that is the core and source of all of Americas ills. Me...I believe they all got there and realized they didnt know what the hell they were thinking and have tried to come up with something that sounds noble. But we'll see...Im certain they are all so upset with corporate influence in DC that they will refuse to vote for the biggest recipients of corporate cash...

    Thats 'sarcasm' BTW...

    Oh, no doubt. That's WHY they are at wallstreet in the first place. Because to protest the real issue, DC, would mean admitting that they themselves put those bastards into office in the first place. Congressmen don't just walk in and say, "Nice office, I think I'll take this job after all..."

    Sounds like that's exactly what they want...as long as they're not the ones that have to be the socialists.

    Yep. MOST (nod to Ikari...I believe him when he says he doesnt and wont) of them voted dem before, and they will vote dem this time around, even though dems are repeatedly the ones with their pockets stuffed. Its pretty comical with some of the interviews on the UTube where people rant about those contributions, then when directly asked if they will vote for Obama, the immediately slip into the song and dance. Pathetic. Still ahvent heard ANY of them acknowledge their role in stupid financial decisions or the University and government complicity in soaking students for tuition. Nah...its got to be the evil bankers.

    Oh its good old fashioned socialism at its finest...the rich and elite will profit from their little ruckus, someone else pays for the food and expenses, and for all their talk about concern over corporations these weiners whine about having to share their stuff with the homeless.

    Prince John was the government. It's not the Conservatives that pull for more government greed.

    The part about the greedy, over-reaching government that oppressed the people with sky high taxation? Is that the part you mean?
