    It appears from several stories (example linked) is that we have a leaderless protest going on that basically targets Captialism, corporate greed and bailouts seems to just be the fuel. Makes no difference if you watch FoxNews, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, or otherwise as most of the interviews with those in protest seem to indicate a general hate for Capitalism yet themselves cannot seem to form much of an answer as to what to replace it with.
    Sort of like what you see posted here by many.

    Personally...I hope they target the banks that hold the Union investments and the banks and stock markets collapse and the unions lose everything. Again. Brilliant bunch of noodles gathered together out there.

    Wall St. and the banks are going to need another bailout. Probably pretty soon. This protest is designed to make sure that that doesn't happen. I've heard numerous cries from the right, complaining about the past bailouts. How do you feel now?

    Guns are for the riot Police to carry. They make nice flower vases.

    Not at all. When people take over a public street and disrupt traffic, they should be dealt with according to the law. That in no way negates the protest of the previous two weeks or what happens from this point forward.

    I feel that if it's Obama pushing the bail out the majority of those protesting will be O.K. with it.

    So...the college students now agree with the Tea Party folks? Awesome!

    Still think they shouldnt bail out the banks. Still think they shouldnt bail out the private home owners. Still think the government shoudl stop debt spending everyones grandchildren into oblivion.

    This reminds me a little bit of the beginnings of the Tea Party movement...

    Well from what I can remember the tea party movement message was simple. End the Fed, & End The Wars. Of course, it got hjack by social cons & neocons in the later years.

    This movement end goal solution is wanting socialism from what I can tell. Fatty fat mcfat fat movie has misguided them sadly.

    Why has this not made the news? It hardly has made the mainstream news at all?? The only time i have seen it on the news is on Rachel Maddow. I find it very interesting...

    Thoughts?
    Comments?
    Response?
    It figures that you would watch MSNBC and Rachel Maddow. She is about a left as one can be.

    Stop watching propaganda and you will see real news.

    By the way from a comment by someone reporting on the protesters it seems they all need a shower.

    Maybe they will keep acting up and get a shower from a water cannon.

    The ones who were arrested need to face jail time.

    They say they are fashioning their idiocy on the Muslim Spring activities, but that ended in violence and death. i hope they are dent packing before it comes to that. I imagine Obama is happy as hell for causing this class warfare.

    What a a bunch of damn fools for listening to Obama's lies and BS.

    The Wall street protests attracted me, and I raised the subject within number of UK debating forums.

    We in the UK are currently protesting for referendum to give the people a referendum of our EU membership (we want to withdraw). We are also protesting the eurozone bailouts, which would include the banks. Needless to say, I was surprised it took you yanks so long to protest against your own contrution to bailouts.

    How many here actually agree with US government's $16 trillion bailout of European governments and banks at a time when your own economy possesses problems of its own?
