There isn't a simple answer to that.

Well, over 30 years the status of the Middle Class was changed by removal of $17-trillion dollars from their pockets to the pockets of the very rich.

Everyone from students to retirees has been pilfered.

All to halve the tax rate on capital gains, cut the estate tax, run up debt that benefits the rich overwhelmingly, plus the trillion dollars in student debt where prior generations from 1946 into the 1980s didn't know what the phrase "student debt" meant (apart from some doctors.)

Same time, corporations stopped paying substantial dividends. Financial industry organizations used Big Bubble moneys to power their takeovers of productive organizations -- then kept profits to pay off their takeover debts.

Angry at thieves ????? Why not ? Give Americans one good reason not to be angry at these bastards.

the hogging of the earth by a few men for start, or how about taking away our constitutional rights and then selling them back to us. You know our government is put in place to serve us, and now they serve themselves, with ridiculous fines and out of control spending. We demand that they stop taking from us, and find a way to be self sufficient like Saudi Arabia who doesnt take any income tax, and many of them live in large mansions.

Could it be because Truth reigns....finally. After all, who supported this system in the first damn place and who has the system turned on. Now, that is what I call truly being duped by your own kind!!!!

Most of the angry Occupy protestors don't even know what NATO means.

NATO does not prevent conflict.

NATO does not stop conflict.

HELL - NATO is not even a good referee.

NATO does not forward resolution to conflicts but it's inaction does tend to prolong it.

NATO is worse than a joke - it is an enabler.
