The banking toffs all look mildly amused at the plebeian entertainment being enacted far below them. They are so out of touch with the everyday reality of common people, they lack the wit to be afraid of the consequences of their selfish activities!

What a disconnect between poverty and greed.

The cops had the wrong people in their sights. They should have been tasing and beating the real criminals on their balconies. I forget who said this, but they are so right," it is only called class warfare if we fight back". If we bend over and take it then it is status quo. Maybe we are tired of having the opportunity and all of the money stolen from us rather than honestly earned.

I Pity Them For Their Blindness To The TRUTH, Ignorance Is Bliss?

Ah, Wall Street's "Let them eat cake!" moment has arrived at last.

Big jerks. What goes around, comes around. They'll get theirs some day.

So THAT is how the other half live! I get a deja vu feeling that I am witnessing the French Revolution in the making. Hope some waiter spit in their champagne.

I wonder if the ones on the balcony know how to grow gardens if it should all unravel? I can guarantee the majority marching could and probably are.
What a show of class. Yes, oh, the French Revolution. Wasn't that when Marie Antoinette got beheaded for saying,"Let them eat cake."

/wow! They are actually laughing and grinning at our misery. We are like a bunch of animals in a cage to them. The question is. How do we make these lizards at least take us serious? They treat us like animals in a zoo. Now I know how the animals might feel. This is why most of the times when an animal gets the chance, they maul a human. I feel like mauling those on that balcony.

You can put pigs on a balcony and give them wine, but in the end they are still pigs. (My sincere apologies to REAL pigs.)
Want to see what Wall Street did and is still doing? See the documentary "INSIDE JOB" and pass this on. Everyone needs to see it.

Of course they're laughing, they're not the ones being tear-gassed--or foreclosed on.
