44. the OWS has already accomplished something
it has shone a light on corruption, and the impact on americans because of that corruption. Because of little boot's tax decrease to the wealthiest in this country, especially, during a time when war was being propagated with no asking of sacrifice, except the blood of our soldiers. I remember when he proposed his tax cuts and there were people, even wealthy people, against them. The obscene, with little accounting, corporate war profiteering on our tax dollars, cutting taxes to those who made money on the wars, and the anti-labor-pro-corporate attitude has contributed to this financial and infrastructure crisis. Also, the corruption-deregulation-of wall street and banking industry. The OWS has certainly shone a light on the banking industry, wall street and monied influence in our government.

To say OWS has done nothing is absolutely fekkin wrong. These are not "hippies", these are citizens-the elderly, labor, environmentalists, educators. They know that the corporations are making a big power grab--privatizing the public commons. Yes, all of those airline personnel in NY, the veterans , the clergy, the seniors are just all damn "hippies." The media can keep making the claim for so long until their whole game is exposed-as to whom the media works for, and here's a clue, it's not the public.
