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.

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.
