Finally, an independent people's movement that focuses on one of our major systemic issues- the domination of Wall St & our financial system, which consistently influences governmental decision-making with it's powerful lobbying, it's hold on a goodly number of our elected officials, it's endless greed, and total lack of regard for laws, regulations, or honesty.
If the government won't act to hold them accountable, it's our job to do it!

Did you miss the other independent people's movements that focused on one of our major systemic issues - the domination of Washington in our lives and their proliferate spending appetite?

Look in a mirror and you will see who the fool really is. Cowards like you don't love their country they let other people fight.

I should think opposition to this stinking, puling, entitlement-hungry, lowlife ragamuffins would be self-explanatory!

Liberalism is the cowards position my friend. The reason you get to be the bullies you are is because you all hide behind each other. That is what liberals do. They do not believe in freedom, but believe the purpose of mans very existence is to serve the state. When confronted by those who disagree, they assemble their "groups" and then attempt to force their ideology on others. To be a constitution loving conservative that believes in our individual rights and the foundations that our system was developed around takes courage. Something that group think cowards like you lack. I love the way your OWS protestors robotically repeat each other without any thought to how radical you sound. Useful idiots is the most fitting description of your crowd.

the banks need to be reeled in and reregulated. They are clearly not grown up enough to run things on their own.
look at what happened in 08' when we had to bail them out to the tune of 1.5 trillion.

why if they hate their country, are they going virtually homeless in november to save IT from the banks??

I guess if you speak up (spreaken) thats not allowed by you....unless your a tea party protestor, then its ok??

get a clue, this country was founded on freedom of speech from a tyranical government. isnt our government tyranical?

or not? they are NOT just protesting against the banks but Obama as well.
I think you guys would be with some of them. BUT being vehemently against them like you ARE, shows the rest of us that
you are so solidly lock and stock behind the big banks that screwed america! sick!

I remember another party that protested and was eventually given power and then crushed dissent.....they were the NAZI party.

and your looking like them when you speak out against speaking out.

WE get to be bullies?? give me an example that your side hasn't

also dabbled in.?

hiding behind each other? um.......

congregating and organizing are the root of political action...

you cant be that stupid..?? stop giving painters a retarded name!

how is OUR ideology being forced on you?? federal taxes have never been lower!! Obama has a corporate ideology you fool!
he has sucked up that political territory you fools abandon when you rolled EVEN further right. forcing the presdient into the role of demo-republitard. live it!

this is an exiting time and you belong in the 50's if your scared of this movement.

the movement is going after all the people you bitch about as well like Emelt, who's huge mega corporation GE paid NO taxes last year.

get on board, you dont have to become a lefty, you just need to be for working PEOPLE...and as far as I know you are working people.

even though you own lots of toys and dont currently give a crap??
that could change!

Your not protesting against Obama or the government. If that is the case, then you failed miserably at getting your message out. The drone like voices repeating what you all are being led to say are protesting capitalism, democracy, freedom, job creators, and jews. The housing bubble and subsequent collapse of the economy was set in motion and propagated by our GOVERNMENT! Wall Street and the banks did exactly what Washington directed them to do, and then when it failed and hurt people, the finger of blame is selectively pointed for political gain. The problem is not solved. This president and your "movement" seems to care less in getting to the real cause. Until we see the reinstatement of Glas/Stegal, the prosecution of Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Franklin Reigns, Jamie Gorelick and the rest of the crew responsible for the thieving, the repeal of Dodd/ Frank, the resignation of little Timmy, and the AIG and Goldman Sachs crooks thrown in jail, the real issues behind the crisis, then we all now we are just being jacked off. Our government is responsible for this, with the democrats being the principle architects and sponsors. The banks were only conducting business that their lobbying efforts insured they were able to, and all of this with the blessings of our politicians.

You must be a union teacher to have responded with so much intellect. Your debate rebuttal would probably get you a scholarship to one of Americas major universities considering the devastating content you posted in your response. No wonder you liberals are kicking our asses here on Topix. All three of you!

What an intellectual giant you are. A real MENSA member. You must hang out with the Penn State Coaching staff considering your fixation on the male genitalia. Keep up the good work there, no pun intended.

I would agree with that statement, but adolescent name calling and a "balls and wiener" fixation speaks volumes about your maturity level.
