In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Sorry... That one is garbage, BT. Way of base. Here is a lil sumpm sumpm from an Austrian School devotee and unabashed capitalist:
Quote
"ONE YEAR LATER...

As most of you are aware, today marks the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street.

Many people call it a "movement" and there are arguments about precisely what kind of movement it is if it is one. I personally spend zero time worrying about this.

For me OWS was an event and that event was about raising the public's awareness of one thing, the intersection of rampant control fraud and political corruption between the TBTF banks and Washington DC; the many ways this phenomena has decimated the lives of so many ordinary Americans.

In this respect they succeeded. Few would argue otherwise.

Unfortunately, the efforts fell on deaf and corrupt ears in our hollow halls of democracy.

Now, instead of making wisecracks about the people who are on the street today attempting, as hard as it is in Blumfukistan, to raise a civil ruckus, I would ask you all to consider the following.

When OWS was conceived and first kicked off last year, there was no MF Global fiasco, Jon Corzine was still CEO, no one knew who the London Whale was, Jamie Dimon was still exhaulted by the MSM as Wall Street's Mr Clean, Bob Diamond was still CEO of Barclays, no one in Washington knew what LIBOR was. There was no sham Fraudclosure settlement, no sham Securitization task force. There were, however, a handful of ongoing criminal investigations of Wall Street Banks...all subsequently terminated.

Last week we learned of the latest Mother of all Keynesian Bailouts. Try as they will to convince us that QE3 is designed to help the little guy, we of Zero Hedge all know otherwise don't we?

What is obvious is that since last September, our corporatist kleptofraudtocracy has only gotten exponentially worse.

The final insult was not the silence on these matters at the GOP convention (after all, we all know that Mitt the Twit is a Wall Street Ponzi pimp).

The final insult was the expectation of the Obamocrats that we would all accept their Big Lie. The biggest lie of all, that they and their Wall Street Bitch in Chief have cracked down on Banksterism.

There is not one shred of evidence that supports this Big Lie. A Big Lie that would make Herr Goebbels very very proud.

So today, instead of making wiseass remarks about unemployed, dirty long hair hippy anarchists armed with iPhones, iCollectivists and liberal arts students stepping off the curbs or chalking up the sidewalks, I would ask all of you to do something else...

Remind as many as you can of the outrageous fucking fraud that continues to be perpetrated by the thieves in pinstripes and hand made brogues and their harem of DC Bitches."

~WB7
I support Occupy. There is a mix of ideology among their ranks, but a singleness of purpose: Expose financial fraud and manipulation. Well done, in my book.
