punditspew: Occupy Wall Street is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. Occupy Wall Street is entering week 2 and…
Within the past three hours, we’ve gained almost 100 more people to the cause. This is insane. 885 people on the cause page. 70 people for the planning meeting. 82 people for the occupation so far, and we haven’t even made flyers to get the word out yet. This is it guys.
why we're on wall street. why we're occupying. why...
angi dill: ok sarah so i have been following this too but i still do not see what we are rallying for? any ideas?
me: hey there! it's a giant, and very intimidating goal underneath it all: to end to corruption of the top 1% and manipulation in our tax and banking system, where the country as a whole is losing billions of dollars because the wealthiest are paying less taxes than we are, and many corporations aren't paying any at all. because of that, we, the 99% suffer from the budget cuts and job losses. the main goal over all right now though is to get the attention from the country. make sure we all know. it's been happening since we can remember, but no one does anything about it because honestly, it sounds like a hopeless cause. but that doesn't mean we can keep sitting by and letting it happen. another issue, that i find interesting, is about all of the giant corporate bailouts, where they are given so much money, and yet any of us who are in debt won't see a penny of it. and with them not paying taxes, it doesn't trickle down to help us all as a whole, it's staying up there with them. AND it's all technically legal. everything they do is legal. which has to do with people in the government looking out for each other and their own agendas. so laws are being passed and bought, and the games are played, and things that will help us aren't passed because people won't pass something that makes them give away their money, which i will agree, let them have a chunk of it, most of it, but they still need to participate in taxes just like the rest of us. they're putting us into a corner and making us run out of options.

gothypants: M. and I stopped by the Occupy Wall Street encampment last night around midnight. There were several hundred people camped out there, in a light rain, wearing ponchos to protect themselves from the weather, and encasing their sleeping bags with tarps. The mood was upbeat. The protesters were of…

Just want to say thank you.
You guys are amazing. As Keith has been witnessing, I’ve been working and researching during the majority of my waking hours. With only sleeping about five hours a night, it’s a lot of time. I’m glad he’s supporting me in all of this. And I’m so glad you guys are so wonderful in getting this out there and supporting it as well. A decent amount of people have been...
