Go back and re-read what I wrote. At no point have I said anything about the Democrats other than that they introduced these bills. That is a statement of fact and it's easily verifiable.

I have not said one thing to suggest that the Democrats aren't as corrupt as the Republicans and I would very much appreciate it if you would stop putting words in my mouth. This sort of behavior is why discussions like this turn into flame wars so often.

Very well then. Please accept my apologies for jumping to conclusions about your political affiliations.

Please substitute the word "the" where I said your precious

It's an interesting article, but I think the author has too much optimism about Occupy Wall Street's chances of success.

OWS has gained publicity and perhaps increased people's awareness, but the movement doesn't have a coherent voice. What they really need a Martin Luther King Jr. who can provide that so that they can rally people who don't have an obvious reason to support the protests.

I have to agree with you about OWS. However they did wake some people up.

The real problem is the huge amounts of money that gets put into the pockets of Congress Persons. That coupled with changes to PACs about having to report where the money came from.

Banking and Finance Laws have been changed to screw the individual and protect the banking institution.
