I find it humerous that the occupy wall street crowd doesn't really know what to protest. I personally believe the real heart of the issue is the envy. Just listen to the lady in this interview.
You can just hear the buzz words in the background... Corportism, Un-Regulated Greed, & We Need Government to Protect Us. What these people need to do is go back and read what Thomas Jefferson wrote in the delaration of independence.
These people are angry because they are drowning in debt. They lived a lifestyle that was beyond their means and now they are slaves to those who lent them the money (banks). People need to realize that to wealth doesn't come from consumptions but from underconsumption. Capitalism works and it works well, it's just that the current generation that doesn't have a clue what capitalism is.
I don't know about you, but the "we are the 99%" signs make me sick. If you make the average wage in Canada, $25/hr or $50,000/yr, you are in the top 5% in the world for income. These people claim they are the 99%? What these hypocrites really want is more money because they are the greedy and envious of those who have even more.
Perhaps these people should voluntarily give up three quarters of their annual income for the real 95%?.... hmmm, I'm quite sure the average greedy, self indulgent, selfish wall street occupier wouldn't give up a dime.
