    I don't know what all is going on or who is suing. I just know what I noted.

    They still are. Nothing changed. They are lying about their financial health. They are claiming profits while they can because their actual values are still going to bite them and they are going to cry to the taxpayers again. We are being lied to concerning banking.

    They are very irresponsible and want someone else to pay for their irresponsibility. Granted, that's exactly what the big banks did also.

    I suspect there is good reason why the poster failed to provide the source link. This doesn't quite have the look of an official news story does it?

    Topic is already off the mainpage of yahoo news. That didn't take them long to sweep under the rug.

    Does everything have to be a news story?

    The link is right there...

    occupywallst.org
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Looks like someone is trying to paint the "people tired of government being in bed with wallstreet" protests into a winey, cry baby, handouts for all plz fest. 99% of the people dont have school fees. Craploads of people never even go to extra schooling after high school.

    Well, let's see what is there......................

    "We the 99% will not be silent and we will not be intimidated. This Saturday thousands more of us will march together as one to show that it is time that the 99% are heard. Join us on the 2nd week anniversary of your new movement.

    This is a call for individuals, families and community and advocacy groups to march in solidarity with the #occupywallstreet movement on Saturday, October 1st at 3 p.m.

    We are unions, students, teachers, veterans, first responders, families, the unemployed and underemployed. We are all races, sexes and creeds. We are the majority. We are the 99 percent. And we will no longer be silent.

    As members of the 99 percent, we occupy Wall Street as a symbolic gesture of our discontent with the current economic and political climate and as an example of a better world to come."

    Very commendable!

Obama isn't sure weather or not he should support them or shun them. They could be a political risk. I watched MSNBC cover the protests tonight, and they are on the fence about them too. These people aren't working for one political party or putting on a show for lobbyist interests.
