@Crunchy Cat The message isn't inaccurate. Corporate take over of the political process through the buy out of political officials means you have a democracy that is stifled and no longer effective in any meaningful way. Large corporations virtually own most of all of your media, it controls and produces most of your food. Monsanto is striving to own all of your seed through seed patenting, threatening farmers who save seeds and you people don't do a damn thing about it. Corporations through their lobbyists are the reason you are without Glass-Steagal which allowed for the economic meltdown, they are also the reason why the war in Iraq was largely privatized (Haliburton and Blackwater). Corporations buy policy through lobbyists and control your campagins through their donations and there is a revolving door between wall st. corporate execs and washington. Wake the fuck up already!! If you call the american people a 'special interest' group then I suggest you unplug yourself from the t.v that's completely 'blown' your mind. Watch out your post office system is about to be privatized: http://www.democracynow.org/2011/9/27/shock_doctrine_at_us_postal_service From Forbes.com: *Friday, September 30th, Concerned Citizens Gather for the Kick-off of Occupy Boston* The conversation that began on Wall Street on September 17 has swept northward to Boston, and inspired a powerful national movement. Joining with nearly 100 actions in cities from Los Angeles to Dallas, Chicago,and Washington D.C., concerned citizens have come to speak out for greater economic equality. Occupy Boston will gather at Dewey Square in Downtown Boston on Friday,September 30 at 6 p.m., to begin an ongoing protest, discuss the state of the union and develop out of that discussion a list of specific changes to ensure our government actually works for the benefit of all citizens. Planning this event began with a group of over 200 people from all walks of life who assembled on Boston Common Tuesday evening to discuss taking action. Paul Harris of the Guardian covered the meeting, saying,”[..]the people behind Occupy Boston showed a strong dose of media savvy and organizational skill on [Tuesday] night, as they drew a committed crowd of volunteers to their cause: to occupy a slice of the city.” Occupy Boston is the beginning of an ongoing discussion about the problems with America’s economic system and how it has damaged government and the fabric of society as a whole. The top 1% owns 50% of the nation’s wealth -and more importantly, how that wealth is used undermines the founding principles of America’s democracy. Through the use of direct democracy, Occupy Boston is working to define and solve the problems of: an opaque and exclusive government, a Wall Street without conscience, and a state struggling to guarantee basic human rights. Everyone is invited to join this conversation about reforming how business and government operate. http://www.forbes.com/sites/peterjreilly/2011/09/30/occupy-wall-street-in-boston-tonight/ In NY today labor unions plan on joining occupy wall st.
