That is a very TALL order Floss. Some of it I liked, in particular many execs still getting huge bonuses while receiving bail out money.
But being "illegally foreclosed" on? If you cannot pay your mortgage then you cannot afford to live in a house like that.
Putting a huge debt on post graduates for education which is their right? Since when is a college education a right? Going to college is a choice. There are plenty of options after high school. The trades, mechanics, the military, etc. It is the students who chose to go to college and to the college of their choosing. Wall St didn't force them to take out massive loans. Why should these loans simply be forgiven? Will I get retro forgiveness on mine?
Perhaps banks should only give student loans to only those with the means to pay? How do you think that would work out? Can you imagine the S***Storm that would create? What would be the point of loaning money if you're not going to get it back?
There are more views of the Lotion Man video alone than people who watch Olbermann.
Oh I can't stand Olberman. If it was just another one of his commentarys I would not have watched it. However he was reading a message from the Occupy Wall St folks so I wanted to hear it.
Sadly it is filled with so many demands and falsehoods that they would need a Revolution to get any of it done.
I know this is a Locutus thread, but let's bring the quality control up a notch.
Well name one thing you have done to prevent such incidents in the future?
I think if we're to look at this pragmatically, we start with the taxes on the rich and corps and go from there.
If you want a stronger cut, then we begin to make assessments on what constitutes a fair profit.
You have to look at it on a macroscopic level.
The economy requires consumers to sustain itself. If consumers are gone and resources go to waste, then the economy goes to s hit. So, at some point, any sustainable society needs a redistribution of wealth or it ends up as muck for all of us.

Rrsp.........................really really stupid plan?
Rigged retiree squshing plan?
Revolution! Don't I remember you telling me how impossible that would be in the USA? Don't we have a thousand dollar bet?
I'll take five hundred now cuz it's half way there already.
Oh it'll probably be the bankers that fire the first drum of bullets into the crowd. There's nothing like martial law to keep your ass out of prison for bank fraud.
Protest mob is enjoying rich diet
They may sleep in the park, but they eat like kings.
Hundreds of grimy protesters laying siege to Wall Street and stuffed into the now-smelly Zuccotti Park dine each night on gourmet meals prepared by a former hotel chef using only the finest organic ingredients.
“We’re running a five-star restaurant down there,’’ crowed Eric Smith, 38, the ex-le Chef de Tournant at the Sheraton in Midtown, who works out of a soup kitchen in East New York, Brooklyn, churning out the meals for more than 1,000 protesters every day.
“The other day, we made some wonderful salmon cakes with dill sauce and some quinoa salad and a wonderful tomato salad with fennel and red onion,’’ he said.
“We use organic, grass-fed meats, and the other day, we made a wonderful fried rice and root vegetables and all kinds of soup.”
So last night, for example, while your family of four may have been forced to resort to Hamburger Helper, thanks to Smith’s culinary magic, hordes of Occupy Wall Street protesters instead feasted on organic chicken, spaghetti Bolognese, roasted beet and sheep’s milk-cheese salad and wild heirloom potatoes.
