    well, personally, i am hoping they are currently burning through their savings / daddy's patience; either of which will result in them having to go home, get a job, and maybe (hopefully) grow up.


    though, as someone who has repeatedly argued that my generation has been scammed into going to college en masse; it's interesting to see the student debt issue brought up again and again. i was listening to one kid being interviewed, and he was explaining that it wasn't fair that he wasn't ever going to be able to pay back the debts he had taken out and would take out in the future, so "someone should help him with that"...... blew my mind. well jackass, did you ever thing gee wiz maybe i should stop taking on all this debt???

    Cite where putting up a fence is identified as out of control spending since border security & citizen safety are both duties of the government and due to the fact that their is no border long fence can you back up the 1 trillion dollar figure as being spent !
    The question is more important than the answer!

    I believe they are trying to accomplish some sort of regulation in Wall Street. But hey, if Mitt Romney has anything to do with it, any regulation on Wall Street would require a regulation of similar scale (wtf does that mean?) to be removed! So that's good news.

    LOL .... I am laughing so hard. It is you who has no clue how it all worked then, and still works now. And I expect that when you wake up tomorrow, you still will not know how it works.

    Liberals vote for free-stuff. It is that simple. It is what started the housing bubble, which had to pop. It is what has given us one giant dependent nanny-state, with folks believing its someone else's fault, Obama out there hollering class warfare, the liberal lemmings going "yup, yup, dat's it!", and meanwhile we are saddled with those biggest of liberal anchors around all of our necks, social security and medicare. And now Obamcare.

    So repeat after me liberals : "yup yup, dat's it".

    Yawn. Yes, I only vote for free stuff. So you know about derivatives trading? You have heard of "the big short" and you know what it means? How would you feel if Walmart sold you a TV and then bet that it would break within a year behind your back? You should be laughing, it is quite ridiculous that we allow unethical trading to continue.

    If your argument was any good, you would not have to make an absurd analogy with a TV set. Government created the bubble. Everyone tried to make money off it, including a lot of folks who bought, but then did not sell soon enough. They could have rented instead. Regardless of derivatives, the bubble had to pop. That's why they call it a "bubble". Derivatives did not pop the bubble. They did not create the bubble.

    Government made the mess. Government interference in basic capitalist markets. But all the libs go "yup yup, dat's it" and blame Wall Street, rich people, and corporate greed. While asking for more free stuff.

    I was simply trying to explain it since I am almost sure you have no idea what a derivative is, how it works, or what the short position means. You displayed that well when you said: "Everyone tried to make money off it, including a lot of folks who bought, but then did not sell soon enough. They could have rented instead." Two different markets, guy. One is the housing market and the other is the securities/derivatives market. Anyone who "could have rented instead" had little to nothing to do with Goldman Sachs unethically selling securities to Lehman and then shorting their stock.

    I would be the first to agree that the government made some wrong turns and really churned out some terrible legislation that aided in created that housing bubble. However, if you think that is the end of the story, then you might want to pick up a newspaper or a book.

    What the Wall Street supporters on this thread have conveniently forgotten to mention is that the ranks of OWS is also comprised of libertarians and members of the Tea Party. Soon it will include those rotten and despicable leftists, former U.S. Marines, in uniform.

    OWS is a People's movement. You don't have to like it and if you are a corporatist you don't have to agree, but to suggest that the movement is not comprised of conservatives and liberals and Tea Party and Libertarians is incorrect and misinformed.
