    Revolting.

    "Sire, the peasants are revolting."

    "They were always revolting. Now they're rebelling."

    Through unfair (and largely unregulated) business practices, many large corporations, especially the multi-national variety, have been sucking a lot of the world's wealth from the many, and concentrating it in the hands of a few.

    While I'm generally not a fan of the "rob from the rich and give to the poor" approach - certainly SOMETHING needs to be done. Big Corporations need to be made to be better citizens. This means corporate investment in social infrastructure, and better sharing of earnings with labor force, so on and so forth. (As opposed to exploiting the Third World for the cheapest labor, and paying all but the top-tier employees just enough to struggle by.)

    Big Corporate lobbies for a stronger government. Big Government passes policies that are favorable to Big Corporate. It's a vicious cycle. And MAKE NO MISTAKE, BOTH PARTIES ARE IN ON IT, bought and paid for.

    People are FED UP. And that's why this movement is going on.

    My concern is that, if there are police or National Guard crackdowns, this may no longer be a peaceful movement. And while I am in favor of the armed overthrow of tyranny, there is always a huge risk of the incoming power being worse than the outgoing power. And some of these folks who are protesting lean way too socialist for my taste.

    As for me - I'm not taking to the streets yet. But I'm keeping my guns clean and ammunition stocked.

    A whole lot of socialist KRAP!

    A pack of parasites who want all the good things in life to fall into their laps.

    Socialism is great. Look what it's done for Russia!

    If the folks sitting around on their ass would get job, earn money, they could spend it to help the other lazy bastards.

    The anger needs to be directed to the 535 people that are responsible for the laws that have created this mess. Class warfare is not going to solve anything, but that's the card the progressive liberals insist on playing. In my opinion any wealth you work hard to create for your self is yours to do with as you please. I don't care how much that is. All these winners going after corporations, why aren't they complaining about the millions that sports figures make or Hollywood. Our about the millions our elected representatives make. They don't attack our poor reps because they don't want to bite the hand that feeds them. Just my $0.02.

    I think they should all be forced to live in another country for a year then come back and see what they really have right here in the USA.

    Not a lot rational sanity is expressed on this topic, but I found your comment to be both.

    I think anger directed at Congress is somewhat misdirected. Any anger toward what Congress has done or not done would be more rightfully directed at those Americans who, most likely, have NEVER participated in their own government OTHER THAN voting! After all, you give people a job where the employees actually write the rules, have an almost unlimited amount of money to spend and have NO oversight or supervision? What do you expect?
    Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia...Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

    You have exactly what we have now. It's time for the employer, us, to clean house. I fail to see how anger at congress is misdirected. It's congress that is trying to misdirect the issue by encouraging class warfare. It's more of the "it's not our fault, it's those greedy rich people". Those greedy rich people have every right to the money they earn. Also every right to spend it as they choose. You and I may not agree but it's not our money. I don't want someone telling me how I should spend the money I earn and don't think you do either. On the other hand the government takes the money they spend and gives it to the non producers of society. There are plenty of non profit organization that will take care of the non producers but why should they. The government jumps in and takes over because they don't like the strings the privates attach to there handouts. The government has no strings attached so we have generations of people that have leaned how to work the system and are making a good income sitting on their butts doing nothing.
