I heard FOX didn't air it LOL!

More photos from Sunday:



















FWIW, the place is crawling with photogs, from tourists with Point-and-Shoots to Leica-toting hipsters to large format. I even saw someone with what looked like an 8mm movie camera.

These kids have more heart than any 1,000 teabaggers. 1,000X more intelligence too.
Love that guys comments to the Flakesnews guy, and no, they didn't show that one........................ But it's all over the net.
Open source government. At least it's a new concept.

It would seem the "gifts" granted to them by the republican drive towards egalitarian libertarianism (dog eat dog) is just the tip of an ice berg.
Start your life DEEP in debt is their cure for everything.
For the 1% anyway.
The more I hear of the truth of this movement the better I like them!
Normal people imposed with a highly manipulated "free market system".............................The ultimate oxymoron.

By the way, dogs don't eat other dogs unless they are starving.
Wallstreet is run by psychopaths!
Tax them to the point we can afford to build the loony bins to put them in.
Keep them there until they feel the result of what they have wrought.

I don't agree with everything I hear coming out of #OccupyWallStreet, but I'm just glad that someone is finally pointing the finger in the right direction. My biggest disappointment with Obama is that he has chosen to perpetuate a financial system that is benefitting the few at the expense of the many.

Watching the Elizabeth Warren lecture and The Inside Job has convinced me that both parties are responsible for this mess and that neither has the will to get us out of it...

Photography, especially with a Leica, can be an expensive habit for "poor" people.

Perhaps, but you don't have to be a 1%er to have one.

I'm talking more about the people who are coming to see what's happening out of curiosity, not the people that are sleeping there night after night.

so you think only poor people need to protest?

you think if things continue as they are, that everything is going to just pan out?

if paradigms are not changed now, then you will be in their shoes 5-10 years from now, but it will be too late

"Yes, as so many journalists seem obligated to point out, kids are criticizing corporate America while tweeting through their iPhones. The simplistic critique is that if someone is upset about corporate excess, he is supposed to abandon all connection with any corporate product. Of course, the more nuanced approach to such tradeoffs would be to seek balance rather than ultimatums. Yes, there are things big corporations might do very well, like making iPhones. There are other things big corporations may not do so well, like structure mortgage derivatives. Might we be able to use corporations for what works, and get them out of doing what doesn't?"

Douglas Rushkoff, "Think Occupy Wall St. is a phase? You don't get it."

My favorite comment on this story:
"Just for the record. I am 60 years old, upper middle class, and well set for retirement. But I will be joining the protests. I don't do drugs, am fully employed, and am not against anything and everything. What I am against is ownership of this country by the top 1%. I'm not jealous. I am very happy in life and don't want for anything. I just want democracy back and to stay -- not to be bought by the aristrocay. Viva la revolution.."
