Too big to be ignored any longer!!! From CNN: Meet the 99%
:applause: I think they've finally figured out that we're not going away.

From CNN's Home Page:



Ten cities, 100 portraits. From boomers to millennials, employed parents to students, you might be surprised who's taking part and why.

Documenting a movement: iReport photographers capture Occupy

"iReporter Sarah Beth Boynton has shot a whole portfolio of Occupy Salt Lake City images. She's not part of the Occupy movement, but she thought its story deserved to be told.

"I wanted Occupy Salt Lake City to have a chance to show what they were doing," she said. "And when I saw that there wasn't much on the news in the beginning, iReport gave me a chance to put Salt Lake's perspective out there."

5. Well that's a marked difference in coverage.

9. Our nation's soul will largely be defined imo on how much the Super-committee, the Congress, and the...
President slash the big three, all the while large highly-profitable corporations and the uber-wealthy continue to fervently suck at the government welfare teat: each dollar in benefit cuts is tantamount to a tax increase which our government is and has been unwilling to impose on those who own most of the nation's vast accumulated wealth, an act so depraved, lethal (yes, many will die), and shameful as to be a misfeasance of office of such magnitude warranting the recall of each who vote to do so. :patriot:
