I guess even owning part of the company isn't enough to be heard by the 1%.

"I just got a call from the Bank of America's shareholder meeting in Charlotte from Richard Eskow, a writer for the Campaign for America's Future. Richard represents 82,000 shares of investor stock of BoA and yet he was turned away with 40 other shareholders just now and he and the others were asked to leave BoA property. Some shareholders who were turned away were elderly."

it is my understanding that there was limited space in the auditorium, so not everyone was allowed in. First come first serve on the seats. So people were turned away regardless of their age or how many shares they held.

Also, there weren't "thousands" but "hundreds"

Translation: Don't vote.

Why would any American with shit for brains waste time voting?

Forget the rigged elections. Forget corporate puppet candidates like Obama and Romney. Forget the corporate controlled poltical circus altogether. Focus on Regime Change.

Division troll

With GypsyKing, "Division" is code for opposing co-optation of OWS by the Dems, and "troll" is code for anyone posting anything he disagrees with.
