Someone said in another post that the right to peacably assemble is something this movement is taking back. The right has always been there... people just haven't been pissed off enough to exercise it. Protesting doesn't do anything productive though. Protesting only says "I realize I'm too miniscule (oddly your forum didn't recognize that word. Too long?) to do anything to actually fix a problem and so I'm going to sit around and see if my non-action can will someone to action." VOTE DIFFERENTLY AND THINGS WILL CHANGE. This shouldn't be a protest against rich corporations that pay Congress off, it should be a protest of Congress who give in to BRIBES. You guys aren't covering all the bases. Go to D.C. and protest in front of the White House. Go park it in front of Capitol Hill and K-Street. Go put a big fat bean bag in the front lawns of the Federal Reserve and the Treasury. The banks did what they were allowed to do, because who wouldn't opt to make billions of dollars? They give money to Congress, and Congress writes laws that make it perfectly LEGAL to do what they're doing. Is it immoral that the banks have most likely destroyed the Dollar? FUCK YEAH IT IS. Should the ones who were engaged in acts detrimental to the USA and it's economic standing in the world go to prison? FUCK YES. But if someone bribes you to do something, they're in the wrong. If you accept the bribe... YOURE WRONG TOO! The bank bailouts and the car company bailouts, stimulus that goes to big company interests in the guise of job creation, and Frank and Fanny too are all the result of Bush, McCain, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, The Fed, The Treasury AND Wall Street. This Government is too big, and by Government I mean, The ruling class. The President, The Congress, the CEO's, the Terrorists, and everyone else that has you by the shorthairs... Wake up people. The chains are getting awfully heavy, and in order to remove them, you have to remove the reason they're there. A corrupt ruling class has us all in shackles. If I were protesting, I'd be protesting the electoral process. It's been highjacked by the Media and big interests, and made legal by the politicians that gave them the money. If nothing changes, then nothing will change.
