    I would like to see companies be barred from using them. If a company does use them, I would want the Union to ensure those individuals could never get a Union job with that Union.

    Though they barely blame the government for giving thebanks bailouts, but instead blame the banks for taking it, no strings attached.
    Just because you disagree with some of the sentiment of OWS, I don't think you should write them off completely. I think that many things that they are calling for (campaign finance reform, intelligent regulation of the bank industry, etc.) are perfectly reasonable. I think the idea that OWS is looking for handouts is a narrative that has been spun by their opponents, and does not accurately convey their priorities or agenda.

    And I think they DO blame the government for the bailouts. They blame the banks primarily for causing the financial crisis we are in now.

    I like some of it's musings, including the original intent of adbusters. However, it's become a left wing cause du jour.

    Not really, they pay lipservice to the government, and blaming banks for taking advantage of rules the government set in place, seems misplaced.


    Kinda like blaming the kid for eating the candy bar your wife gave the kid right before bedtime.

    You are a great example as to why the Good Reverend's shop is non union.

    surely, bank lobyists had NO part at all in these laws being passed.

    If the right wing would just admit that most of the Occupy people are just average Americans protesting with a different view than theirs that is not radical but also in many other Americans views as well, i would be happy with that.

    Surely you don't think yelling at "lobyists" [sic] and bankers will change the laws governing them do you?
