    Here is a new article from The Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/josh-s....html?ir=Yahoo

    Some excerpts:

    "The Wall Street protests represent the most potentially transforming political movement in generations: finally a revolt against the root problem that corrupts and paralyzes U.S. government. And the nascent movement might actually succeed if we stop turning ordinary Americans against each other along the tired and destructive battle lines of left vs. right."

    "The profound change represented by of Wall Street protests is that the people in the streets have finally zeroed on the real culprit: Wall Street, K Street, and unchecked corporate control of our government. While the protests are proudly decentralized and leaderless, the unifying theme is "revoking corporate personhood" and "campaign finance reform" that would reverse the January 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision that lifted the flood gates to unlimited corporate money in elections."

    "The actual policies that will save our democracy are wonky, and the list is long -- I will save that for a subsequent post. In the meantime, remember: before any lasting structural reform will advance, we must build a diverse movement of millions that cannot be ignored. Americans from the right and left must abandon the polarizing rhetoric from our leaders and our TV screens, and join hands in support of a 21st century democracy reform agenda that reclaims our government from moneyed special interests. The future of our nation depends on it. The time has come. The beginning of a much larger uprising is at hand. The journey begins at the Occupy Wall Street website or Rootstrikers.org."

    The Occupy Wallstreet movement has a list of demands you can view and vote on. I highly recommend that you make comments and add more suggestions on demands. Until the 99% understand the true agenda of the 1% they will continue to try and put a bandaid on the problem. I believe the only way to fix the problem is with a complete overhaul of the system and expose the corruption.

    If these protesters believe that Jamie Diamond is the source of their problem they have a long long way to go to figuring out who and what they are fighting against. ... until they call the Rockefellers and and Rothchilds and those of the Bilderberg goup onto the carpet and collectively ring their necks in public forum, and find a way to disempower them from political and economic power, returning nations like the US and UK and so many others to true Republics and Democracy all of this will be much for naught.

    Apparently the people there need some ideas spelled out. Can somebody distribute some copies of Dennis's document: The Reset Button

    Maybe that will bring the required focus, and generate some real demands and solutions.

    Voted for each question. Scared about some of the results and I am a bit disappointed there is not an End the Federal Reserve Question. I like that repeal the 16th amendment is getting some traction.

    Do not have time to watch the video now but Dylan Ratigan has his own little movement going. Not sure if it is mentioned in this clip.

    Here is a link to an article on the efforts happening in San Francisco. The best part (I loved) is to flip through the pictures of signs in the slideshow. Some say there is no cohesive method to the madness but these signs speak a 1,000 words about all the many, many reasons these conditions will not continue ~ indeed, cannot continue.

    They touch each and every one of us and there is a very clear and wonderful representation of us out there in the streets. Bravo! it's well worth a few moments to consider and remember what is driving this wonderful movement for beneficial change. I salute all those taking part in peaceful protests at this present moment and send blessings!

    Check out this slideshow if you get the chance. It's heartwarming and endearing. Let us all come together with unity and purpose and bring about wonderful, kind, and more loving changes to the world around us.

    All of the talking heads don't get it, the protesters are tired of the matrix. forget the specifics, everything is broken and no more waiting for politicians to fix it.
