Freedom of contract. We sell them guns that kill them; they sell us drugs that kill us.

Hey thanks for the reading Tungsten.

It was good insight and quite interesting though I still feel that this is a bit ambiguous in nature which I guess is the point but I do not see how that can work in the long run. I stand corrected on the leaderless statement I made, it makes sense why not having one works for dealing with police and government intrusion.

The article by Chris Hedges states that the elites do not know what the protesters want because this is rebellion. Well that is all well and good but rebellion without a central message is just a large mob of angry people who are going to be ignored further.

This is a pretty interesting look at what that message could be.

Well best of luck to them, we will see how this pans out on our own streets and how it long it lasts in the states.

After seeing him talk, I actually wouldnt mind buying his book. Im curious to see what he has to say.

O'Leary on the other hand is a world class douche. Hes that special level of dumb that actually makes me feel sorry for him. And funny enough, I feel like he's exactly the type of businessman that epitomizes what the #occupywall street 'movement' is protesting.

Hedges was dead on. Point by point.

O'Leary showed his hand … he's Bateman with no hair, deifying unrestricted captalism, and everyone who doesn't agree is a … what was that? Oh yah, "left wing nutbar".

God forbid that restrictions should be placed on capitalism to ensure that the little guys don't get trampled in the stampede of greed.

I'm liking the Bill Maher show.

"Ketchup, a petite 22-year-old from Chicago with wavy red hair and glasses with bright red frames", explains…

Am I supposed to form my opinions from the statements of someone named Ketchup?

"It'll be the last time."

Awesome.

He explains things in a way that's very easy to understand. Everyone should be outraged at the US banking system.

Sometimes things make sense, such as some religions (maybe just Islam?) forbidding making money with money.

Canadian banks have always had commercial and investment banking groups under the same banner, so he is incorrect in regards to why American banks failed vs their Canadian counterparts.

Favourite part is when Kevin O-Leary attacks the movement for being low budget. Way to epidimize what the protestors hate.

Who thinks this occupy vancouver movement is legit or just a bunch of bandwagon protestors? Not sure what I think yet, just sure I'm tired of people posting about it on facebook.

^ there is no doubt that the western uprising gets hi-jacked by people with their own agendas….and ban wagoners that are just plain unhappy and don't know why(getting educated in the process).^

Some people suggest OWS was to take media attention away from the Greek Riots and what their message is as that could give someone the idea to form a proper protest/riot.
