Subject: RE: BS: Wall Street Protesters...
If Oliver, who walked up to the master with his bowl in his hands and said, "Please, sir, I want some more," in a deep, resonant voice coming from a lad with the size and general musculature of Conan the Barbarian……..methinks they would have given him more!
OWS wants are straightforward and obvious. Make the wealthy, super-wealthy, and corporations pay their fair share of taxes, put a stop to these endless and pointless wars, and restore the regulations on Wall Street, the banks, and other financial institutions—plus, make the Wall Street Ponzi schemes illegal.
Clear. To the point. Non-negotiable.
And where are all those Conan the Barbarian-size muscles? That should be obvious as well:
The vast majority of the Wall Street Occupiers are voters. And that, obviously, includes the power to withhold one's vote from particular politicians as well.
Seems pretty simple to me. Maybe even simple enough for our elected officials to grasp.
