First they ignore you, then they laugh at you and then they laugh even harder as you **** off because you find something else, equally retarded, to vent your displaced anger with society at. Let the idiots, with no clear goals, agenda or plan, protest. They will grow tired soon and piss off back to the work-shy shadows. Stupid misguided fools. I find it funny how anarchists tend to perfectly fit the profile of those who would be the first to suffer in a survival of the fittest type society. "We are the 99%" - no you are not. You are a group, equally small and nearly as bad as the so called 1%.

How about banning lobbying, or at least making it transparent to the public.

How about paying for political election campaigns from tax rather than donations. This way politicians are more free to serve the public.

How about taxing the rich higher. In the 70s, a top CEO would earn 30x the average wage. Today, it's 400x. No one deserves that much more than a nurse or a police officer. Even if a CEO creates billions in profit for their company, a big part of that profit came from their workers and the infrastructure and education that society (the tax payer) has provided for the company to exist in the first place. A higher tax rate on the 1% would better reward the people who helped create the massive profit, as would giving the workers a pay rise. But what happens, they lose their jobs because even more profit can be made by shipping the jobs overseas. Greedy corporations make me so angry!

Latest comment: How about re-educating the business community and changing the business mantra from: "The point of a business is to make a profit" to "The point of a business is to create a great service/product. Making a profit is the side-effect of creating a great service/product."

You're an idiot. A lot of those people will be tax payers who, like me, will be severely pissed off that the price of everything has sky rocketed, work levels have dropped and the country is in the shit all because of a bunch of greedy arseholes short selling, investing in the sub prime housing market and driving us into a recession they won't even feel!

Wow, all those lucky people being able to take an afternoon off on a beautiful Saturday to hang out with their friends. I was working. You know, for a living.

If all those people are unemployed, then we have a problem. If all those people are employed, then we also have a problem. Don't you get it, the system is broke, corrupt and unfair. Solutions are not so easy though, because those who run it (greedy corporations) have a vested interest in nothing changing.

It was a Saturday. Why would there be a problem if there were that many people in Times Square on a Saturday afternoon. If they are employed they were probably finished for the weekend anyway and if they were unemployed they probably had nothing else to do anyway!

if i didn't have a job, I'd go there too, but i do have a job and I'm too afraid of losing it, so i won't go; the reason why i do have a job is because the corporation decided to outsource the American jobs to the second world countries, so I'm not really in the position to be outraged about the looting that goes on in the first world countries. But i do support them all!
