Not really, just tired of it all, I don't need taxpayers money, pay enough taxes. just tired of hearing about it all. I actually know few people if any who are in the governments pocket, but I would like to see a real cause out there. How about asking congress to actually earn their paychecks?

There is no organization, no leadership and worst of all..... It no longer stands on it's original foundation.

The Occupy movements strongest point is that there are no leaders. The foundation has grown to include millions of people from all over the world.

Each of the 1,000 Occupy sites has it's own organization.

The corporatocracy is in Code Red.

Nothing else seems to be working. Maybe the protests will.

OWS movement will fail. This will unleash large scale frustration, food riots and looting across USA very soon. Islam is the the only force which can uproot capitalism, bring equality, justice and peace for the hopeless masses.

OWS movement will become Allahu Akbar movement and demolish the money gods sitting inside the temples of banks and credit card companies.
-------

What is Islamic economy:

a. Economy should be Halal, which means money should not be produced from thin air. Islam recommends Gold as standard.

b. Usury(interest) is forbidden. Since banks can NOT make money through interest, it will open up the gateway for profit and loss shared investment opportunities. Otherwise, they can't survive.

In short, this will abolish labour exploitation and create millions of jobs and opportunities between the skilled workers and investors.

c. 2.5% annual wealth tax called Zakat from every capable citizen.
----------

The foundation of capitalism is "Use power for wealth accumulation".

The foundation of Islamic economy is "Use power for wealth distribution".

Everywhere, Muslim brotherhood parties are winning and 1.7 billion Muslims are coming together.

OWS movement will eventually pave the way for "The rise of Islam".
