    I think Grayson did a good job explaining it.

    It is about an awakening of the majority of America that our priorities are out of whack, that letting a few of the most wealthy profit at the expense of the majority is not in the best interest of the country.

    It's so easy to sit back and demand evidence then play passive dismisser. I kind of am doubting the sincerity you may have for wanting to know anything but rather believe your will is to just sit back and toss stones. Anyways, watch this. Kind of sums it up nicely I think.

    Why? You being a conservative and all I thought you were of the mind that they deserve special attention and hoisted on a pedestal more than others.

    I think Obama would have gotten a lot more traction on this issue years ago if he did not lump families making $250K with the Warren Buffet's of the world.

    As to priorities, not sure what that means. There are all sorts of crazy incomes out there. Heads of hospitals make over a million dollars a year. Get a law degree from a top school and work in NY or DC and in a couple of years you are making 400K. CEOs make 500x the average worker at their company. How does this group intend on fixing any of these issues.

    The hard work is finding answers, it is pretty easy to espouse problems.

    I don't think you've gotten the whole concept of this protest yet. Once most agree on the problems the answers come easier.

    I think people already agree on the problems but everybody differs on a solution.

    All kidding aside I have not yet grasped what this is really all about. In my mind, if these folks are against what has been going on in Washington and are not partisans in disguise, then the message here would be somewhat similar to the fiscal points of the tea party. If not, why not?
