    But no OWS is huge, it is a lot of how Obama got to run on a "raise taxes on the rich" platform in 2012, and is part of the ongoing pressure that can only strengthen his hand.

      The media is just showing that as neighbor helping neighbors with out showing that it is a message.

      Like dayglo orange like highway safety workers wear — with black symbol of fist.
