Probably the same place the rest of us NORMAL people stand, they think they are NUTS, a disorganized group of pierced punks, snot nosed anarchists with kerchiefs over their acne pocked faces, burned out hippies, welfare slackers and other malcontents with nothing to do! So far they have accomplished NOTHING except to waste police manpower and alienate the people they really need to have on their side, like the REAL 99 per cent!

People said these same things against civil rights marchers when Martin Luther King first began his movement. But MLK revolutionized America and influenced many the world over. You do get a few rotten apples in Occupy, and they need to be weeded out. But Occupy Wall Street is America's salvation. It will mobilize the common people to take back power.

Oh, so you're ranting about "white people" now, huh? Look pal, many Koreans have found good lives in America. Koreans born here automatically become citizens. Go to Japan, where even fourth-generation Koreans still need to apply for citizenship. And you can't be posting from North Korea because they won't tolerate their citizens being on the internet. America saved your behind in the Korean War from North Korean style totalitarianism.

wait so how does starving people in a dictatorship have to do with consciously destroying the economy for your own personal financial gain?

do u have any idea what happened in the financial crisis? u must be one of those retards that think Bernanke was one of the bad guys huh? bottom line is banks should be broken up to seperate pools of risk. there is no way stock market risk mortgage risk and small business loan risk should be combined. one bad part fucks it up for all parts.

u get it?

but good ole white boys network wont allow that to happen. shit congress is even worse. even though yeah some spending should b cut. esp. congressional pay and gov pensions.

now what was ur ignorant ass saying about food? its bc of ppl like u America is failing. too dumb to see past party lines.

I am not gay, but even if I had been, that would have been none of your business. You are just a hate-filled ranting loser with nothing constructive to contribute. So you work in finance. What do you do, arrange loans for people to fart? If you started marshaling arguments and ideas instead of simply venom, you might make a difference on Topix.
