Here's hoping that the masses are waking up. There is something very wrong here that needs to be addressed. I work for Verizon which is a healthy, profitable company. The old CEO and incoming CEO pulled in 50 MILLION DOLLARS between them last year. So how is this profitable company treating the workers? By trying to take away pensions,healthcare and outsourcing American jobs overseas! Do these CEO's feel any obligation toward keeping the middle class alive in this country or is it all just "hooray for me, the heck with you? " I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to that question.

Yes, I saw this and thought it was great.

Hmmmm, OK, just send me several million shares in GE, and I'll see what I can do.

Well if 5 million OWSers bought 100 shares, thet could effect change, real change.

It's a really great thought to think OWS might have 5 million supporters in the future, when I say supporters, I mean people who actually do something in support of OWS (whether it be donate what they can, protest, or something tangible), not necessarily people who tacitly agree with some of its grievances (which is probably a decent share of the population).

A viewpoint based on ifs, is a pretty tall order.

Just send me enough shares to gain controlling interest, and I'll see what I can do.

Why not include a link to the initial post? Would help to get things going faster.

Yes, I know these articles are out there but including a link in your initial post would help you get feedback quicker on these forums.
