Forum Post: It is time to march to the Justice Dept in DC

Posted 2 years ago on Oct. 8, 2011, 7:28 p.m. EST by SMARTGIRL (32)

The next step is to march to the Justice Dept in DC and DEMAND that the crooks on Wall Street that brought our financial system to it's knees be prosecuted. That is one very powerful and concrete demand. This movement is too nebulous. Focus your energy on things that will have a direct impact. There are many, many people hurting and the elited on Wall Street are laughing while sipping their Dom Perignon.

Ron Paul tried to warn us.....unfortunately there are too many lazy, fat and happy people in this country that never woke up. Well, dear people it will be a rude awakening when the meltdown comes. And it's coming very soon.

All I am saying is protest smarter to achieve your goals. Focus on concrete demands. Focus, Focus, Focus. What do you want? Then act. It might take a little time to brainstorm. Think about it.

we need to flip their corruption of the law - the justices ruled that 1- corporations are a person? if so they are liable for CRIMINAL offenses. 2- the sole job of the corporate board is to maximize profit if so, they should also be liable for the criminal actions of their company. 3- if corporations have the rights of citizens should they should also have the responsibilities of a citizen - jury duty where are the legal minds that can flip their corruption? - gypsy14

You mean the same Justice Dept. that approved arms sales to Mexican drug traffickers and is currently cracking down on medical marijuana facilities in California? Rather than going to the Justice Dept. , go to the members of the House Financial Services Committee and the Senate Banking Committee who are from New York. These committees have subcommittees on Investigation.

True, both political parties are corrupt. But, if Obama claims that he is sympathetic to the protestors, let him put his money where his mouth is.

He is all too happy to use you. He appreciates your votes, not your ideals.

You have to START somewhere. I'm not one of the Koolaid-drinking Obama Zombies. A grassroots movement that makes concrete demands, in peaceful yet passionate is very, very powerful. It can galvanize all of those fat, lazy, happy people to take a stand when they see the truth behind the message.

Fire Obama and his friends at GE. He talks about jobs, then works with GE to lay off people and take jobs out of the country. Obama is as much the problem as all the other politicians and bankers.

Eric Holder is a criminal himself. By the way, this financial problem was created by the gov. forcing banks to give loans to people that wouldn't be able to pay them back. So, the banks and wall street made a profit. Don't you see, government should have stayed the hell out of the private market and it should stay out.(Frank-Dodd). They can't help but to fuck up things. Its what big gov. does best.
