Not too obvious, are you topix?

Let me remind everyone here on topix that
topix headquarters are located in the NYSE.

That's right, so OWS is hurting TOPIX,
not the 99%.

You really are incorrigible, topix.
You're all in bed together;
Banks, Gov., party-controlled blogs....

I hope OWS takes you all to the cleaners.

ATTENTION: SUPPORT OWS without protesting.

Just go to your mailbox and look for any
credit card offers from the banks.

Mail it back to them in their return envelope
and add lots of heavy paper, too. Be sure to
include a message of support for OWS.

See Banks only pay 25 cents to mail letters.
When you mail it back nice and heavy, the bank
has to pay the extra postage and the bonus is
that the post office will make more money off the
banks. It's a win/win for everyone, especially Americans who are sick and tired of corporations running our country. The day of reckoning has arrived.

I really like your idea! It's simple and poetic. Brilliant.

OWSs' day of action will amount to nothing more that a couple of arrest and bunch of cold winning kids standing around crying for more free stuff.

I love that they cheer every time someone gets arrested as if they have accomplished something. They ought to load these people into buses and drive them into the Hudson.

Oh no some dumb tree hugger has judged me to be clueless, nuts and wrong whatever will I do.

At this point if you support these idiots you are supporting terrorism. Trying to shut down Wall Street is by far the dumbest thing they have done so far. It's hilarious watching this live because now you can see how pissed the actual contributing members of society are getting at these losers.

Huh? Not only banks, but any business have access to Bulk Rates.
Also, the U.S. Post Office does not return Bulk Rate mail to sender. So if you try mailing this stuff back to the businesses without putting the postage on it yourself, it will not reach them.

Just send the envelope back with a note that says, "Hello from human race. You're one of us."

You know when the good scenes are happening is when they break out into a chorus of "The Whole World Is Watching".
That's when I watch, and laugh. Next thing you know, YouTube has the video of the police reaction and they use it to try to prove to me that the police are brutalizing them.

Here's the message I get from the OWS crowd...

I dare you to taze me.

That's so true! The funny thing about htis morning is you kept hearing one person awkwardly trying to start a chant with no takers.

I'm kind of disappointed that we didn't get the full 10,000 zombie tree huggers they promised us. I was really looking forward to seeing some aggressive police action/skull cracking. We also need more classic moments like when the guy in Oakland driving the Mercedes floored it when he saw a protester and kept going when he jumped on the hood.

These protestors are as useless as tits on a boar hog. Just think if they had decided to instead do something PRODUCTIVE like volunteer their time, clean up a vacant lot, or any of a hundred similar things that would have made their respective cities just a little bit nicer. At a minimum they could have kept their "camps" orderly and clean. Instead they crap all over the place like apes in the jungle and expect to be listened to and respected.

What a bunch of imbeciles. It's little wonder most are unemployed...

When you get the banks (or anybody's) crap mail, look inside for the return envelope or post card that has the postage-paid marking on it. They will not get charged that postage unless you send it back. Stuff the envelope, or you can actually tape up the whole she-bang with the postcard showing on the outside. Don't put tape over the pre-paid postage. Send them everything.
And since they're in the business of sending unwanted mail, sending them all of your unwanted mail shouldn't upset them. Just don't send anything prohibited by the post office rules. The cost to the company is per the weight of the package.
Eventually, you will be removed from their mailing list, but that takes time (and their increased costs). This isn't an idea spawned by the OWS movement; I've been doing this and advocating this for decades.

I hope everyone knows who the corporations pass their cost increases to...?

Classic!

A group of protesters blocked a truck delivering Snapple beverages to the Deutsche Bank building. The truck's driver was enraged.

"You are about to become the 98 percent when I take one if you mother-(expletive)," the driver said.

This worked. The protesters quickly moved away and the truck was able to enter the Deutsce Bank loading bay.

Just a few blocks south of Zuccotti Park, a film crew is set up to film the next Spiderman movie on the southside of Bowling Green Park. Some protesters have gathered around the set mistaking actors for actual government officials.

How did they get mistaken? Were the actors just sitting around doing nothing?

It's more like win/lose for the USPS and you vs the corporations. No one uses USPS except for the 75% junk mailers. They'll remove you from their list eventually, and put a mark on your name to avoid you and any promotions you may need. The USPS no longer can mail junk to you and your "day of reckoning" followers. The corporation no longer wastes their money mailing to you and your idiots in the first place. Corporation wins/USPS loses and you will have wasted your time. But then again, you have lots of spare time to waste haven't you? It's like correcting other people's grammar, you think you're ahead of them somehow but you're only showing up how stupid you really are. You're destructive and a very good student of Bill Ayers.
