I don't think that you realize this but the protestors here in the US are pretty much the 1% of the world. Other countries like Egypt, who you claim to be like, are fighting for basic human rights that you Americans already have. Yes the banks made questionable decisions and mistakes but the companies are run by people and people make mistakes. The government bailed them out which may or may not of been the best thing but they were trying to help. No one in Washington wants to turn the US into a 3rd world country. They want power, it is human nature to want to be in control, but they want to run the most powerful country in the world, not a country in shambles. If you want to do something meaningful find a job or start a business. Entitlement will get you know where. There are jobs out there, in fact there are over 2 million job opening in the US. Work to make change and fight for what you want but don't isolate yourself. By protesting with so many demands you have become a joke to many Americans and the banks will never take you seriously. Work hard and use your rights in a more meaningful way. You all have the ability to change the US and the world in ways that people in Egypt and other places do not. Instead of throwing temper-tantrums on the sidewalks about everything, enact change over to get everything you want over time. Your movement may seem amazing and powerful to you, but to most people looking in, you look incoherent and ridiculous. Sorry I'm not sorry.
