OWS is quite a movement I must admit. Beginning in New York for a few hundred dollars a week per person, and spreading across the country with union help, vaguely connected to dying socialist movements in Greece and other European countries.

Some have even tried to connect it to the Arab uprisings in North Africa, after all they all seem to hate Jews, right?

Nice crisis someone manufactured there. Be a shame if anything happened to it. Just don't let it go to waste now, hear?

Nah. Barry's re-election campaign doesn't want OWS to go so far as to actually, like, show the current government is corrupt and brutal to Americans.

Barry expects to have a good background to cry "Look how upset people are that the rich are rich, and how evil it is to not be poor like y'all will be iffen I get my way!", and then he really, really wants to get re-elected. Not run out of the country on a rail.

Of course, on the International scene, I could imagine a scenario where Ghaddafi, Mubarak, the heir to the Shah of Iran, and the German Chancellor get together to root OWS on. . .

wv: enting. Cruising for Entwife daughters.

OWS was supposed to work just like Gunwalker. You make people do things they wouldn't normally do, then use the resulting failure as an excuse to add more regulation to or nationalize the activity in question.

Bankers have never been very good at pointing this sort of thing out to the populace which is why it continues to be the most heavily regulated business in the country.
