this weekend Occupy Wall Street started to protest in San Diego...the group was both anticipated and and disdained by various factions of citizens here

i think the thing that has bothered me most about the criticism of certain factions around the country is the claim that these people are jealous of that 1% that have 90+% of the money available

those without r jealous ....check out the gals on The View group talking about it

for the most part these women r ardent screamers...and u really have to listen hard to find and get the point and unscramble whats really being said ...but the pictures of champagne drinkers up on the balconies of hotels laughing at the marchers was just so irritating

they have put this country into a disaster of failing middle class employment and greedy corporate lobbyist have successfully bought out the good sense ethics of the major part of our government officials and sent middle class employment overseas

i usually don't get into politics...but to stand by and say nothing now would be like watching a train wreck when i could throw a switch and avoid a disaster

the French Revolution occurred when a ditzy Austrian blonde said the starving populace should eat cake

this Occupy Wall Street group could easily become the advance troops of a revolution against government and corporate shilly shallowing....and gross mistreatment of the populace by both

this employment situation in the middle class thru outsourcing has become more then just a shoe that pinches...the foot is ulcerated and non healing...most of us surmise that without care the foot and leg will become gangrenous and the leg will have to be remove

i'm not waiting for that

we have a part in this 2 peeps

i believe there were those with limited insight who rarely looked below the surface of the spin....and those who knew but wanted the profit...support for school etc...and figure the economy could always right itself like a cat jumping from a tall bookcase because like it or lump it

DIS CAT HAS USED UP THE LAST OF IT'S 9 LIVES

blame game be damn...step up everyone...choose to admit ur part in it if u have one...and let's make it right!!!

lost homes due to bankruptcies...money loaned to prop up banks who won't give refinancing to homeowners who may lose homes....banks who won't advance credit to those who have shown themselves to be deserving...they seem to have forgotten million of taxpayers bailed them out

when the youngsters out there have no jobs and no money to buy more beer their feet will pound the pavements just like ours did

of course we marched for ideals..but as they get into this they'll be marching for ideals and virtues 2

interesting isn't it

being non virtuous is clearly taking the economy of this country down

GREED is beginning to be seen clearly...questioned... and damn by the populace at large...

greedy capitalism will soon be taking a real punch in the nose

now if we can start manufacturing in America...and buying American we'll have a start toward recovery and middle class respect

put those jobless youngster to work fixing the old bridges... buildings and roads...they want to do more then flip burgers at fast food places

give them a reason to respect themselves

i know this is a kinda FDR solution but hey...it worked 4 him!!!

B of A want to charge us a fee for the use of our own debit card....charge us to use our own money!!

GIMMEE A BREAK!!!!!!

where do i go to sign up for the revolution???

i was a protester in the 60's...living in San Francisco when the House on Unamerican Activities came there...publishing the names of all they intended to speak to before the fact and implying they WERE Communists

i was one of many who got washed down the steps of the Courthouse by the fire department

so i've won my stripes in the protest arena!!

thank goodness for free speech

and i hope this protest group will grow and grow

check out Chad Deal's blog about Occupy San Diego for another slant on this group

and is anything manufactured in America anymore???

personally i'm tired of only speaking to voices from other countries i don't understand when i need to sort something out about a credit card or such

Right on, Nan!! Taking back the power is what we need now. While we sat on our Cristal-addled asses the last decade before it all went to hell in a handbasket, we allowed too few people too amass waaaaay too much control. I'll bet if the artificially-inflated economy were still chugging along as it was in 2005, we would still be turning a blind eye to the inevitable collapse. These brave people are bringing attention to what I consider criminal behavior and the perps are trying to label them as deadbeats. I think we all know who should be on the receiving end of that firehose!! I hope the long-term effect of this is non-complacency when backs are being scratched, regardless of the short-term result being the stellar rise of your net worth.

But I do have to note the lack of accountability of the American public when they were seduced by the banks to enter the ranks of the upper 1%, while the banks were simultaneously insuring themselves against our ultimate, inevitable failure. This was an "inside job", mark my words. The scary part is that many of the people protesting had their college degrees financed by false inflation of home equity, not to mention several other costly items. My hope is that this does not go unnoticed, because, as we well know, history unlearned is doomed to repeat. Take note, Americans. When your own coffers are being stocked by the obvious misdeeds of others, are you this time going to say NO! I will not refinance just because I can fog a mirror and it's SO easy, or maybe mmm...there is something fishy going on here. I left my job when I was at the height of my earning power because I could no longer stomach the greed of the lending institution. My hope is that Americans let their conscience be their guide, rather than their net worth.

ditto Grantie...cheap any kind of stuff probably means another American has lost their job...this is a case of we have to "follow the money" even if we have to admit it found it's way into ur own pocket...yikes!!

Bravo. Went to the Occupy San Francisco march last Wednesday, and had an interesting half a day with them on Friday. I wrote about it at THE ABNORMAL WIDTH, but the damn system won't let me open it to read it, I can only edit it. If you can open it, lemme know. Peace, my fellow free American.
