Anyway, they are still in the wrong place...they are protesting wall street and not those who control wall street (the government, the Fed, and the corporations)...they wave their american flags and they buy DRM'd music on their iPhones to pass the time, they drink starbucks coffee and eat starbucks muffins, and they make the whole thing look like a farce, which is all it really is.
Lol, if you watch TV and see a special about PS3 CFW users and they show only pathetic junkies enjoying their free pirated gamez while smoking and drinking. Would you also believe the scene is all about that? or would you say that it is a colored news item, probably made by Sony, to make CFW users look bad and the real CFW users are normal devs and normal users who don't do anything wrong and the pirates are just lifting on other's success and abuse it?
I have to agree with you there are protesters on Wall Street who only want to profit and don't have any clue what is going on exactly. That's the way it always is. Most people here in my country don't even know why they vote for a political party, they just vote for what them is told to. You are a normal worker, you have to vote on a labor party. You are someone with money you have to vote liberal, if you believe in Jesus Christ Superstar you have to vote Christian and so on.
Edit: Today is Occupy Amsterdam and The Hague in my country
sadly (actually not if it comes to going out for dinner and bed gymnastics afterwards...
) I have better and way more nicer things to do today otherwise I would be there.
: no Dutch sandwitch with the dinner and bed gymnastics btw
