Average worker is paid less to get bonuses for the top guys. Just not fair and I do not think this is good for the economy.

Herman Cain closed 200 Godfather Pizza stores to bring the company to profit.
Thousands of people, the 99%, lost their jobs.

This is the claim to fame for Cain.

This is what the republicans support.

They support the one percent who profited from closing 200 stores and terminating thousands from employment.

I hope no one is in the delusion, Cain or any republican is going to help the 99%.

Watch one hour of Fox news, or read the Rhino Times, and you will see, they hate the 99%.

There has to be something done with the government at hand. How can a president or anyone else in power get something done when you have noone to cooperate from the opposing side. Complete shutdown of progression or moving forward to put this country back where it belongs. What a mess Bush left us and now the Reps are sitting on their hands without voting to make things right. Why, so they can say that an African American, the first, failed and so did all the dems that voted for him. How sick to watch the country decline and slowly become stagnant.

The American people have been strong-armed by selfish, greedy business thugs for too long. How could any of us not support the OWS Movement??

Hey idiot. Had Cain NOT shut down those COMPANY stores, the company could have gone belly up stranding the remaining 600 franchise stores. Do you think the reason for companies is to employ people??? I guess by your logic, democrats support companies going out of business.

Are you really that dense? It had nothing to do with republicans or democrats!! it had to do with market saturation. Godfather's had stalled as #4 pizza chain and they were starting to lose money as Dominoes was rising and Pizza Hut was diversifying their menu.

First of all, Occupy Wall St. does NOT speak for the so called 99%. Second, what do YOU demand of the government? What are YOU willing to work for to achieve it?
When are you going to start caring more about what YOU make instead of what someone else does??

Right Mike, keep regurgitating the MSNBC party line that was ejaculated down your willing and hungry throat. You really are a tool.

Just how do you know if these stores were on the verge of going belly up?
I am sure your just apologizing for the top one percent. Market saturation? Excuses for poor product, marketing and professionalism.
Cain could have tried to focus on improvement of the stores, but he went straight to the shut down mode, with no concern for the employees lives. Heartless bastard.
Companies close stores just to get the market share looking better, not because they had to.
It is clear, this is what Cain did.

I see by your insulting language, your just the typical republican ass hole. Thanks for showing your ass, now everyone knows you just a douche.

I haven't watched MSNBC in years. I do not watch television any more.

I want government regulation of wall street.
The deregulation by Bush of oil speculation gave rise to crazy gas prices which started a domino effect on our economy.

This is why so many could no longer afford the mortgages they were once paying fine.
When you gas bill goes up a few hundred dollars a month, and the inflation goes up as a result, if your pay does not increase, you may default on your house.

I am sure you don't look at it this way, because you support the one percent.
Now go stick your nose up a millionaires ass hole.

Judging by the poll, occupy Greensboro is a complete failure. No surprise there.

Corporate oligarchy is far worse than social democracy. Do we want to return to the days of Dickens, with present day Scrooges and Oliver Twists, child labor, robber barons and unlimited wealth co-existing with unforgiving poverty?

Banks steal 3 trillion dollars in tax payer money. Corporations own all of our politicians. Banks crash the world economy. America is involved in multiple wars. Our country is in debt 15 trillion. Countries are collapsing around the world. 100,000 people are out in the streets of America protesting against this all this.

And you bitch about a guy peeing on a cop car?

Are you getting paid to be a topix propagandist or what?

The police are showing a unnecesary use of force when making arrests.
If they are ordered to arrest someone or disperse the crowd, do they have to snatch people up like animals and use batons when they have five guys on one small woman?
Do the math, that is excessive.
I am sure some of these cops are republican and they are taking there political aggression out on these people.
One can clearly see in these videos, protesters who are just sitting, and the cops snatch them up and throw them around like rag dolls.

At this rate, people are going to declare cops the enemy.
Is that what the republican cops want? Do they want to put their fellow officers on hate lists and thus, in danger?
Not the way to solutions.

These cops wonder why some are using blades. It should be obvious. When the cops are the violent people, it is instinctive to stop the violence. If that is by a blade, then that is what is used.
Of course, this does not work, but if you put yourselves in the shoes of someone being attacked, what would you do?

Actions cause reactions.
Cops are drawing first blood.

I'll have to hand it to all leftist Bureaus of Disinformation and, in particular, to you Mike Duquette, Orwell, L.C. Stark, Noshoe, the local site leftist Bureaus of Disinformation. Economics and politics, TWO DIFFERENT ENTITIES!!! That is, two different entities to NORMAL people, not leftists, socialists, communists and nazis. Keep up your leftist jargon and propaganda. Oh, by the way, the balkanisation of the United States into Constitutional US and your leftist trash portion of the NOrth American continent will occur with or without your participation. UNITE!!! That is your leftist jargon. Go America bashers!!! Go Constitution haters!!! Go America haters!!! Aaah, the spirit of the 60ers lives on. Have an America hating day Mike, Or, L.C. and No. I'll have my usual Celtic day!!! Celtic=wonderful. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
