Where I come from, manipulating markets at other people's expense is not considered a hard day's work. When their manipulation and dishonesty catches up to them, what do we do?

    We bail them out and give them bonuses and unfortunately, people like yourself would rather displace the problem onto the poor and elderly.
    'Wall Street' again, huh? Man...thats an evil mass of concrete. Who exactly would you like to see targeted?

    Im guessing you dont know any brokers. If you dont think the great majority of them bust their ass in an incredibly high pressure field, Im guessing you have never earned enough to invest. Sure...there is corruption. Corrupt INDIVIDUALS should be identified. This mandless "oh the evil banks" "oh waaah, Wall Street is bad" crap is laughable. You realize how many people work there? You realize what would happen to the middle income folks if the banks were to collapse?

    Boy you do love to spew leftist bull**** and talking points, dont you. STILL arent doing a very good job of saying who you are going after...what you see as a viable conclusion.

    Im guessing you arent actually out there protesting. This is ever the problem when a bunch of idiots inspire a bunch of retards to rebel. The retards yell and scream and at the end of the day...well...London.

    Where you see a problem of income being distributed downwards, reality has shown that income has unfairly been distributed upwards. The evidence is overwhelming.

    You better have SOMETHING more than just marxist/socialist/leftist talking points. Maybe you and your buddy from the College of William And Mary can figure out just who is paying your bills and how you propose to resolve the worlds problems beyond whining about a street and an industry.

    I have been investing since I have been earning a paycheck. Your strawman is duly noticed as well as your ignorance. Anything else from the peanut factory?

    The bankers are "evil" since they were behind this economic mess as they were behind the mess of the early 80's recession and the tech bubble. Wall St and the bankers have their hand bloodied with economic calamity. You think people work hard in a high pressured environment in order to manipulate markets for personal at the expense of the greater good is noble.

    Wall St has also captured our politics for their personal gain. Just look where recent Secretary of Treasuries comes from.

    Nobody knows what theyre rebelling against likely. Wall street meddling in government, an economy held hostage to private interests, capitalism? Also I never mentioned a viable conclusion that is a manifestation of whatever psycho-political construct you have in your head that a percieved group of persons believes. You may enjoy living off the dribblings of the rich, frankly, some other people are going to bitch about it while they do. Your just bitching.

    yawn.....your idiotic rants are boring me.

    I believe in free markets, fool. I believe in free banking over this crony capitalism **** which Wall St is ripe with. In fact, Wall St. is the long arm of the state. Ironically, you are the one who supports this "marxist/socialist/leftist" BS.

    Well...actually Im posting in a thread the counter position to the retards protesting in the streets. You have just stated you dont know why exactly they are protesting...but you support them.

    I think that pretty much sums everything up nicely.

    I think crony capitalism is wrong as I do think manipulating market for personal gains at the expense of economic calamity.

    Why you are so hostile to these points and defend the status quo and our current economic catastrophe is beyond me.

    I never said I supported them. I sympathise with them in some ways. I don't support what they do for alot of the reasons you stated. They have no cohesive ideology.
