    •  it doesn't fucking matter! (0+ / 0-)

      Your protests don't reach critical mass in order to make a difference. First you claim it made a difference and then you say wait, it's not over.

      The last time rich people got scared of the masses taking to the streets it was backed by the specter of communism and how the rich folks were lined up and shot in Russia. It was backed up by the socialist movements in Europe, it was backed up by people willing to organize unions and get their heads caved in by bats to fight for a better life.

      Rich people are not afraid of the OWS movement.  

      As a nation, the U.S. consumes the most hot dogs per capita. So you'd be wise to never underestimate our powers of denial.
