BY JOHN BAYLES  |  On Saturday, Oct. 15, the demonstrators that have been occupying Zuccotti Park for the last month took their message to the one place that promised maximum attention: Times Square.

The day had been orchestrated as a worldwide call to action. Demonstrations, under the O.W.S. moniker, were held in over 900 cities all over the globe. In Manhattan more than 6,000 supporters marched from Lower Manhattan to Washington Square and, at 5 p.m., descended upon Times Square.

  1. Practice what you preach, you crooked politicians!!!!! What's the use of being rich and living in luxury if you are simply being greedy and oppressive?! If I were you, I would relinguish some of my money and give it to those in need; I'd rather be doing things for and by the people instead of scheming on others. We need some leaders who are godly, caring, and have genuine integrity- NOT those who claim to know or dictate right from wrong. Besides, there's nothing good about greed. It's not only wrong in the eyes of every pro-American but also in the eyes of God, which it a sin. I'm sure everyone has heard about The 7 Deadly Sins, and greed is one of them. Luke 14:13-14 says, "Invite the poor, crippled, lame, and the blind, and you will be blessed." Why not give them something to somebody who is poor and needy but instead give to the rich? For the rich have more than enough to spare! How much more do you rich people need when you can give as much of your wealth/bare necessities to those in need? Proverbs 11:24 says, "give freely and become moreu00a0 wealthy; be stingy and lose everything."
