I think the only kind of general strike that could affect the 1% and also effect a change would be some form of economic strike - a week of withdrawals form banks, a day of cancelled insurance policies. With the fear of retribution by the banks or the government, that may be very hard to organize. Can someone in an OWS working group design a New Banking model? A boring one which really will not be crushed by the Big 8 Banks and which can provide a place to actually get a return on our savings? Is there a method for beginning a move away form the corrupt and intrenched industries like Insurance for cars and homes?

Are you planning to invest in penny stocks? Well, this is probably a good route if you want to buy a lot of shares with lower stock prices and expect possible high returns with your investments in the stock market. With as low as minimal investment of $25,000.00, you can buy a load of shares in a single trade. To further give you an overview of penny stock trading, here is some information that you should know as an investor .. find more infor at http://www.wallstreetwins.com/

Don't use that name shazfa. It's a going to confuse some people into thinking you are shadz66. I will not respond to you again here until you change it, and I recommend that nobody else does either.

It is not more difficult to strike now than it was in the 19th century. A new definition of strike that doesn't make lose money to the capitalists is quite inoffensive for the 1%. Keeping that in mind, other forms of actions are a way to rebuild some solidarity and class consciousness for the workers, in order to prepare minds one day for a real strike.
