The rich should toss Occupiers into the Boston Harbor and call it Tea Party 2.0.

I see lots of eviction notices being presented in the basements of said parent's house, some in the middle of heated Modern Warfare battles.

If I were the governors and the state legislators suffering in this economy, I would come up way to charge protesters who disrupt business with "grand theft" and call it a felony.

Default whatever philosophy they represent is not welcome to be rolled out here.

Step aside here comes sean penn and Oprah, check books open.

Wait, is that Algore opening his wallet. Bill and Hillary paid over 33 million in taxes last year, perhaps they will help the wall st pros?

If this organization doesn't smack of communism/socialism/ whateverism I don't know what does.

Labels aside, whatever philosophy they represent is not welcome here in America.

I suppose that makes sense. The Middle Class paid for the damages caused by Wall Street.
The only difference is I doubt it would take $16 Trillion to clean up the Occupy site.

Nobody really knows, The Federal Reserve is extremely secretive. The actual costs of this current financial fiasco and the consistent corruption in The Fed over the last 100 years or so will have long lasting effects, most notably in the generation making up the majority of OWS. The $16 Trillion in bailouts issued by the Fed (the large majority of which was issued secretly and without Congressional approval) is just the start.

Inflation is one factor which the actual costs of which will be infinite. The Federal Reserve currently conspiring with European Banks and talks of "bailing out the Euro" are a sign of even more costs to come.
