    Inside Job

    If anyone cares to know why the Occupy Movement is so ticked at Wall Street. Or how we ended up in the mess we're in. I highly recommend Inside Job, a documentary narrated by Matt Damon.

    Umm… just a question.

    What are all of you intending to protest about anyway (which you did previously)? I know you're the 99% versus 1% with high income (or so I think) but it isn't really clear what you believe in, and it seems that some of you have very different motives. Sincerely, A bystander

         Kudos to New York Mayor Bloomberg and others for "cleaning up" Zuccotti Park!     You have effectively galvanized the movement by arresting hundreds and bringing further global attention to our out of control corporatocracy!     Guess what..., "They're Baaack."
