    Hit them where it would hurt the most, I'm talking about making sure they can not use their computers or internet connection...
    Killing the power to their internet completely would be the biggest blow for them, but that's not what I'm saying to do... What I am saying is for everyone that has any kind of 401k to move their founds to interest barring bonds for 6 to 12 months, if everyone does, then the companies have no money coming in, only going out on one day, and not returning. Can you imagine if they (the big banks) lost all access to cash, and then everyone started a run on the banks the next day to move their money out of the banks? Think of the stress us little people could cause them in a 2 day time period... Well I guess no one would do such a thing, because it has not happen yet. See banks have to give you your money once you request it, and if they don't, they would be guilty of stealing from you....

      lose in the long run, because in the past the stock market has always shown that if you pull your money out and try to time the market you will lose a lot of money!  You will also suffer penalties and have to pay taxes on it!  Don't put it in the bank!  You'll make nothing on it!  Investing in stocks is the only way to go, people!  Don't you forget it, or you'll be a loser!

      All these ciphers are back in full "invest and retire" mode on the msm--still showing these anachronistic scenes of young 50-somethings reclining on lounges in warm climates.  Still trying to sell us the bullshit of that possibility.

      Maybe it's just time to get official Occupy candidates running at the local, state and federal level.  Occupy has to infiltrate the status quo just as the Tea Party wingers did.  Look what damage they've wrought.  Why can't Occupy candidates (hell, sign a freaking piece of paper that you'll carry out the goals of Occupy--which seems to work well enough for the wingnuts!) get in and start influencing what's happening in DC right now??    

      Sometimes you have to patch a hole in your wall even if you're planning to entirely gut the house in a couple of years.  It still improves the wall for a couple of years.

      It's a way to start affecting the actual legislative process NOW.

      If the plutocrats begin the program, we will end it. -- Eugene Debs.
