When the people come to the protest armed the banksters won't be laughing. Get enough people pissed off and you've got a mess on your hands.

You already have a mess on your hands. I agree with a few of the things 'some' of the Occutards were saying, but I have the gut feeling as most that this about their own failures and their own lack of self-sufficiency.

I realize the problem with the Wall St. and Main St. relationships, but having George Soros hire a bunch of liberal arts graduates to protest on Wall St. (in which he made his fortune trading currency) dilutes the positive part of their message.

Maybe he should've got a bunch of pissed off blacks and hispanics from the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens.

Either would be a waste of time.

“What truly exacerbated the loss of confidence in the system was the Financial Crisis and the subsequent railroaded bailouts, which “democratic” America opposed to the tune of 97%, and which were, and still are viewed as rewarding the very people who caused the collapse.

The oft-spoken official claims that “the taxpayer made a profit on the bailouts” just adds salt to the taxpayers’ wounds, as it conveniently fails to take into account the host of programs—from TALF to ZIRP to QEI, II, and III and Twist—that virtually handed the banks the money with which they could “pay back” the bailout cash.
America sees backroom deals and favors to insiders every step of the way, and it is rightfully so they see this, because that is exactly how the bailout was affected.

No one had to pay for his mistakes, and equally significant, no one has been prosecuted despite overwhelming evidence of fraud, malfeasance, and corruption.
Americans cannot help but subscribe to the cynical quip; everyone is equal under the law, except for those who are above it.

Fines don’t count, especially when the money to pay them comes right back through another door.”
