These Guys Are Definitely Wall Street's Heroes

Thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters descended upon Manhattan's Financial District this morning in an attempt to march on the New York Stock Exchange.
A majority of the ire coming from this demonstration, which began in Lower Manhattan and spread nationwide with copycat movements, has been directed at Wall Street.
A pair of men in suits and ties were spotted in the massive crowd with bright signs saying "Get a Job" and "Occupy a Desk!"
They are officially being considered Wall Street's heroes.

Thousands? more like a couple hundred
“Get a job” and “occupy a desk” makes a lot more sense when people are...............HIRING
Exactly, how the MSM exagerates and the sheeple eat it up! I saw some video & it looked like less than 500.
Good for them!
The Wall street CEOs that were Corrupt were all from liberal Ivy League Schools.
OWs protests their philosophy’s morality.
Occupy- A call to restore conservative morality that the left removed from society.
Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks, no form of government, can render us secure.
To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea. -
Reminds me of Protest Warriors. I bet they could have had a hilarious take on the OWS
Normally I don't like the glib “Get a Job” statement when unemployment is high and jobs are very difficult to obtain. I remember putting out hundreds of resumes and applications when I lived in an area where we had 19% unemployment and the rest of the country was in double digit unemployment.
However, the OWS crowd seems a lot more interested in bringing us Communism and making everyone poor than in getting a job. They have shown themselves to be lawless, mindless bums looking for a handout.
“Occupy a Desk!” is hilarious! I wonder how man of them can even read. They can't even make their own signs. They just hold up the ones the unions and Soros made for them.
Yea because we know that is what this Occupation is about they are out there looking for jobs but it is just that no one is hiring. Get real.
Seems to me that this Occupation movement is more about training to become a new round of homeless people in America. These people wouldnt accept a job even, they would rather look for handouts.
I sympathize with looking for a job in a tight market. But if your or my choice was to bring in income or occupy the town square, I’m certain we would find a way.
“Normally I don’t like the glib Get a Job statement when unemployment is high and jobs are very difficult to obtain. I remember putting out hundreds of resumes and applications when I lived in an area where we had 19% unemployment and the rest of the country was in double digit unemployment.”
Did you consider moving?
“they are out there looking for jobs but it is just that no one is hiring. Get real.”
Then start a business. No one else is responsible to start a business just to hire someone else.
Companies ARE hiring. But of course you have to be willing to work, at the wage offered doing whatever work is offered. Now if you aren’t hungry to know that it is always easier to get a job when you got a job, then you will wait until the unemployment runs out. Since these magy ‘students’ and anarchists have nothing better to do they wander the streets like wild dogs ( no offense to dogs)
These lowlife Occupiers should start a business. Being that they think they represent 99% of the country they should have no problem getting support for their product.
The fact is that they are not about getting jobs or improving the economy. They are strictly about tearing down a capitalist system if they were to get their way. They are anti-American.
Even if companies were hiring, who would hire these OWS bums anyway?
The economic downturn has made it easier to find better people than say, compared to five years ago. At least those that I interviewed with this go-round showed up on time, were (mostly) appropriately dressed, didn't curse at me (seriously - that has been an issue in the past) and so on.
But, their skills were still sorely lacking. One guy I spoke with said that his "first love was environmental sciences, but he was going to interview for this help desk position to see if he liked it". Do you think he got the job? Not likely.
Others that were turned down had personality issues (if you're working on a telephone help desk, you need to be able to communicate above a mumble) or just weren't qualified (you need to know at least a thing or two about computers if you're going to work with them, this ain't college, there's no "remedial computers 101" on the job. Seriously, he asked about that.....)
Person that we hired is a little older (40s? but I'm terrible at judging ages, and am too polite to ask), is rebooting her career, and has been around long enough to understand what it means to be a professional. I hope she works out OK.
From what I've seen of the protesters, I'd be unlikely to hire any of them.
lol, see my post 20. Great minds, and all that.
Oh so you then are in sympathy with these dirtbags who are Occupying Wall Street. And you blame Wall Street for the corruption of Washington D.C. as well.
It is people such as yourself who sympathize with the Occupiers that anger me even more then the Occupiers themselves.
TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN BAD LOANS FORCED ON THE MARKET BY THE FACIST PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT AND THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS WHAT CAUSED THE FINANCIAL MELTDOWN AND THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS OF TODAY AND NOT WALL STREET.
And anyone who did apply, I would comb for their names on the Internet to see if they had anything to do with these bums, and if so, the resume goes right into the trash.
I note you ignored the comment about: “So many seem in denial of the pervasiveness of corruption in Wall Street, large corporations, and our government, and in denial of the fallout from off-shoring, out-sourcing, and guest-workering US jobs sway. “
I’m not in denial about it, all I’m saying is that these bums aren’t doing anything to help their cause.
More directly, they are Marxists; childish adults that never learned to feed themselves and are jealous of everyone else. Kind of like with two children when one gets one more piece of candy than the other so the other throws a temper tantrum.
Oh so the FULL page ads that were being run by ACORN telling anyone and everyone who had been turned down for loans to come to them and they would do the dirty work in bullying the banks were not FORCE????
And what do you think the entire existence of GSEs (GOVERNMENT SPONSERED ENTITIES) in the lending and banking industries are for???
If it was a free market as you are claiming and there was no government FORCE involved then why do GSEs like Fannie and Freddie even exist???
It is your point of view which is a crock. It was the fascism of telling banks and Wall Street that they had to follow political agendas of the progressive movement and ignore free market principles that created the financial meltdown.
And financial contributions by corporations to Congress have been mostly in self-defense being that they had already been under attack for years upon years by the progressive movement and the democrat party (with no resistence and help from the republicans at times).
Go sell your anti-Wall Street (anti-capitalism and anti-American) crap elsewhere.
Are these people protesting the government?
If anything, they believe Obama is on their side.
Lenin would refer to these people as "Useful Idiots." Anybody can bitch and whine, but what makes you think these boneheads have a solution?
ansered = answered
Fascism only needs government being intertwined into the private sector. It does not need business to agree to it being it is by force.
I also did answer your question.
*Normally I dont like the glib Get a Job statement when unemployment is high and jobs are very difficult to obtain. I remember putting out hundreds of resumes and applications when I lived in an area where we had 19% unemployment and the rest of the country was in double digit unemployment.
Did you consider moving?*
Yes, of course I did.
But I was so broke I couldn’t afford to move by that time. Rumors of places where unemployment was only 8% would send flocks of people from my area to that state if they could afford to move.
Eventually, I found a job. I don’t think people who have always easily gotten job realize what it’s like when you get out of school and have no experience when even low paying jobs are hard to get.
My point is, I wouldn’t have joined up with a bunch like this, even though I can see where the ones that are actually looking for work feel.
Had I joined a bunch like this it would’ve only taken me a couple days (or a couple hours) to figure out that I do NOT want to be part of anyone who advocates Communism, Socialism, violence for no reason, anti-Americanism nor any of the other crimes or immorality this crowd symbolizes.
It would seem that by now the few honest or good people that started out with them would be long gone by now.
Big business and finance, especially global business and finance, have no problem with quid pro quo relationship with corrupt government. What better way to ensure regulations that put competition at a competitive advantage or pass part of the cost of employees onto the public. But then again you know that.
competitive advantage = competitive disadvantage
“Yer so ugly, Laz wouldn’t even hit you.”
If anything, they believe Obama is on their side.
That's because he is.
Not only him, his pastor and current and former staffers.
Nobody wants to touch them for fear of GOVERNMENT reprisals.
Only after the stench and lawlessness got to be a cover for the real Americans did they actually start shutting them down.
Van Jones is right, we have not seen anything yet. Just wait for the Dem convention.
It's 1968 all over again. only this time there's no real compelling reason to side with these morons.
That might not be all bad, it'll be fun watching hippies getting their heads bashed in again.
