116. Don't know about that.
Edited on Mon May-17-10 10:50 AM by Igel
"Take back our power to use the government as our tool to promote the common good, correct the injustices of the past, and redistribute resources equitably and sustainably."

I tend to think that the bankers aren't considered to be part of the "common" good; that the bankers' wealth and power is an injustice to be corrected; and that their resources are to be equitably and sustainably redistributed (which I take to mean "given to the protesters and those the protesters empathize with").

Of course, they're also a corporation, as is the SEIU. So when they say "no corporate" influence, they don't mean it. They really mean "no corporate influence we disagree with." I suspect they could even find for-profit corporations they agree with, so I won't draw the line there.

On edit: The first quote is from their website.
