    Where is the LOVE??? -the 1% gave us the Dot-Com Boom, the EV1 electric car to lease (until they recalled all of them and destroyed them), hand-over-fist loans during Bush's second term, and the opportunity to move to India in order to get a job in the US by being outsourced… No appreciation for all of that money we could had made if we didnt screw it up by our own selves… The 1% should hire a bunch of Mexicans to occupy the Occupy Movement… Dont forget, the 1% also gave us the option to choose to say 'capitalist democracy' instead of 'democratic republic'. We the 99% are stupid, lazy and pretentious. As long as we have a flat screen TV, and SUV, the occasional shopping spree and sports venue, alcohol/drugs -we're happy!!! If the economy was REALLY BAD, no one would have shopped on 'black friday' or 'cyber monday'… MERRY CHRISTMAS!u00a0u00a0u00a0u00a0u00a0

      I'm not lazy, nor am I stupid, nor am I definately not pretentious. I don't shop black friday or cyber monday-I never have. I don't own a T.V., a car, and I don't drink or do drugs.u00a0u00a0I have worked multiple jobs for quite a while-and still I'm struggling to stay afloat. There are millions and millions of people like me out there. To generalize the 99% in such a negative is uncalled for. We're all trying to make it the best way we can-but come on man, I earn every single dollar I have-and still it's not enough. This country is run by corporate villians-and our government encourages it. Finally-as a mass collective we are sticking up for ourselves and you want to degrade it like you're so important. Who sounds like the pretentious asshole now?

    Excellent article. u00a0OWS is gaining a lot of exposure in our popular culture, which is a mixed blessing. u00a0I view it as a positive force because the movement is evolving beyond a physical occupation of space. u00a0Political satire has a long history and it can be used as a force for good to see positive changes. u00a0We have to keep pressure on our elected officials, businessmen, and people in power to see positive changes. u00a0

    In later versions, the voting concept was removed entirely and the tool directed users to anti-Israel websites, giving users and option click a button labeled "act now!" which would direct the user to a poll or email address.
