    Despite their honest intentions, many of the Occupy Wall Street protesters are being suckered into a trap and calling for the very "solutions" that are part of the financial elite's agenda to torpedo the American middle class – higher taxes and more big government. – Prison Planet lede via Drudge Report

    Dominant Social Theme: It's all Wall Street's fault. Government needs to write the wrongs of capitalism.

    Free-Market Analysis: Has Internet alternative news come of age? Is the Internet Reformation gathering power like a gale force wind? Just as it was during the era of the Gutenberg Press 500 years ago, the change-making of information technology is implacably turning the elite power-conversation upside down.

    The ignorance displayed ... knows no bounds. The protesters just don't get it. They are calling for the government to use force to impose their ideas, all in the name of bringing down corporations who they don't realize have completely bought off government regulators. Corporations and government enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship – getting one to regulate the other is asinine and only hurts smaller businesses who are legitimately trying to compete in a free market economy that barely exists.

    The zeal for totalitarian government amongst some of the "protesters" is shocking. One sign being carried around read, "A government is an entity which holds the monopolistic right to initiate force," which seems a little ironic when protesters complain about being physically assaulted by police in the same breath.

    One woman interviewed by Kokesh also announces her intention to help Obama to capture a second term. How can a self-proclaimed Occupy Wall Street protester simultaneously support the man whose 2008 campaign was bankrolled by Wall Street, whose 2012 campaign is reliant on Wall Street to an even greater extent, and whose cabinet was filled with Wall Street operatives?

    Something is very wrong with this picture ... the majority of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators are advocating "solutions" which the very elite they claim to be protesting against also want should set alarm bells ringing ...

    Another movement co opted. Just like the all war all the time everywhere neocons co opted the limited government movement of the 80's and today's tea party.
