    set up a phony(front) collection agency and basically continue the rolling jubilee, but don't promote or advertize. Use the the Occupy group to raise money and promote ideas to change the system and have phony collection agency do the work. Yeah, I know the powers to be would eventually figure it out, but a lot could get done before they do.
    Also, why not try to attract some big money liberal sugar daddies. Buffet, Soros and Gates could supply the resources to get the job done before the banks and Wall Street knew what happened.

    •  yes they could do that. (0+ / 0-)

      Probably they are buying the debt using some bland-sounding front company name, which can be changed easily if its connection to OWS is found and anyone tries to lock it out of the debt purchasing market.

      We got the future back.

    •  you could play a game of whack a mole w/ fronts (0+ / 0-)

      but at some point you would have to wonder whether the time and resources into starting so many fronts and managing them would be wasting limited resources--also Wall Street would have unlimited resources and expertise in terms of deciphering these front schemes.
