What's the deal with the ubiquitousness of the uber-materialistic, mega-millionaire, heavy campaign contributing .01%-er Russell Simmons always being on TV as a spokesperson for '1%'? There are a lot of stupid things about this movement as it continues to decay from something initially inspiring to something seriously stupid, but the sight of this jerk who rides to the protests every day in a different $500,000 car from his collection really makes a farce of the whole thing.
You've allowed millionaire entertainment celebs and the Democrats (who are every bit as much in bed with Wall Street as the Repugs) to take over this thing.
I actually was very enthusiastic about this thing at first; now it's a train wreck.
