I think it's time to stop this pissing contest with Wall Street. The only thing that protesting Wall Street has done is raise numbers for the movement. I believe we are at a number where we can finally march to Washington, DC. I will use this metaphor to try to explain my thought process. My girlfriend plays a lot of Sims, by EA games, and she uses something called 'The money cheat'. Just because my girlfriend uses it, it doesn't mean everyone knows about it and uses it. If you think of EA games as the government of Sims, they allow their citizen (players) to use this money cheat. Whose is at fault here? My girlfriend for using a cheat to better her life in Sims or EA games for allowing/creating the cheat? It is time that we start to change this government that has over welcomed its stay. I'm not saying that I'm not grateful for what they have accomplished in the past, but we live in a world today where this form of government is irrelevant. We have allowed our government to become to strong, they work for us not the other way around. And its time the common person had its own checks and balances when it comes to government.

Everyone but the government sees the internet as a place to rally and petition, they are going to need an up in their face approach. Bring your tent to the capitol!

We are marching on DC online. Check out www.lobbydemocracy.com. We are founding a lobbying organization to represent the majority. We will make sure their voices are heard by their elected officials.

Sometimes a machine is damaged beyond fixing

I'm a farmer. I know a good machine from a crappy one (read Egypt). But a good machine in the hands of a lousy operator leads to damaged equipment and loss of crop leading to hunger and debts. we're coming out with better machines all the time but keeping the machine i have running productively means i can aquire a state-of-the-art machine sooner. So let's fix the machine we have (the ballot box is your tool box) and then discuss the new machine. https://sites.google.com/site/the99percentdeclaration/

Sim Games? This is what you do? Live in fantasyland. What a pathetic looser

No i do not play Sims. I was using a simple and laymen metaphor for what these corporations are doing. Obviously you misread something. Where in my post suggested i was living in a fantasy world? I'm not sure of your intent but it is obviously not trying to make America a better place to live. And it is I you call the pathetic loser, oh excuse me you said pathetic looser. If what i wrote in my post means I'm a pathetic loser than i openly welcome this label..... lol
