Where is the Occupy movement now that the depravity of the super rich is on full display?

Thanks Judy!
Here's what another billionaire had to say about income inequality in the US.

Occupy is suing the SEC and saving people from foreclosure, to answer the question in the leader.

Let's get the super rich out into the streets, cleaning them... then visiting all the hospitals in the world to help the overworked and underpaid nurses and doctors...

These are people for whom "enough" is never "enough" Greed begets Greed!

Reading about these greedy bastards and their pet republicans is enough to make me sick. When will they finally be made to pay for the mess they created. It has to happen, doesn't it? There has to be some punishment or this will continue to happen until there is nothing left for anyone else. Send the crooks to jail!!!

The mantra that Cameroon and his schoolboy looking chancellor Osbourne keep continually peddling is, "we're all in this together".... well... WE didn't ALL create this mess we find ourselves in... answers please on a postcard to Wall Street... and the private corporations who gamble away our money on the stock exchanges of the world...

...and off in the distance, a tiny violin could be heard playing. Most of us live within a budget. Villianaires have budgets that include private jets, (which they now get a tax deduction based on "security" for), multi-million dollar mansions, expensive cars....and yet they cry the blues that it's not enough. Maybe the movie "Marie Antoinette" could be played in a continuous loop to wake up the regular folk.

Sorry to say I don't feel one bit of sorrow for the rich. They don't give a hoot about all of us middle and lower class who are suffering. Thanks Judy

Thanks for some excellent comments, everyone. Robert O, I signed both petitions. Thanks!

Phil, that is an excellent video that I hope lots of people see. I've often thought I'd scream if I heard another person talk about "job creators"! That bogus concept is so idiotic. I always picture some idle rich character, whimsically manufacturing some busy work to occupy the shiftless rabble, just out of benevolence. This is a consumer society, and if the people who spend about every cent they have can't find a job, or get paid a pittance, of course our economy will not thrive.

Joanne, I've heard of that lawsuit somewhere, but you can bet it wasn't in the mainstream media!

Ben, Thanks for the link. I hadn't heard that song for a long time. I always loved it. It is very timely today, isn't it?

I agree with everything else that's been said. It's no accident that while the middle and lower income people are making less money, corporate profits and the stock markets are going through the roof. Matt Taibbi has followed the bankers and Wall Street criminals closely, and they are not being locked up yet.
