Wall Street protesters dress up as Zombies

Recommended Posts

Protesters speaking out against corporate greed and other issues showed no signs of giving up their campaign Monday, with organizers urging participants to dress up as what they called corporate zombies and to take part in a rally against police brutality.
Occupy Wall Street started with fewer than a dozen college students spending days and nights in Zuccotti Park, a plaza near the city's financial center. But a day after Saturday's mass arrests, hundreds of protesters were resolute and like-minded groups in other cities had joined in.

I hope this continues and spreads across the country. As with the Vietnam War protests, this may be the only (besides voting) way to get the attention of the politicians and persuade then to make some changes.

Kind of off topic, but I've seen better zombie costumes at weddings. Which frightens me.

this protest is so misguided. the protesters are calling for the government to do MORE. the same government that started this mess.

The government caused the credit crisis? Really now? Really?

At the heart of it all, yes. The odd relationship with the Federal Reserve. It is set up to fail us; there can be no other scenario.

The federal reserve is not federal government, it's private banks.

Legal status

The twelve regional Federal Reserve Banks were established as the operating arms of the nation's central banking system. They are organized much like private corporations—possibly leading to some confusion about ownership.

The Federal Reserve Banks have an intermediate legal status, with some features of private corporations and some features of public federal agencies. The United States has an interest in the Federal Reserve Banks as tax-exempt federally-created instrumentalities whose profits belong to the federal government, but this interest is not proprietary.[2] In Lewis v. United States,[3] the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit stated that: "The Reserve Banks are not federal instrumentalities for purposes of the FTCA [the Federal Tort Claims Act], but are independent, privately owned and locally controlled corporations." The opinion went on to say, however, that: "The Reserve Banks have properly been held to be federal instrumentalities for some purposes." Another relevant decision is Scott v. Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City,[2] in which the distinction is made between Federal Reserve Banks, which are federally-created instrumentalities, and the Board of Governors, which is a federal agency

Completely true. But our governments odd relationship with them involves the Federal Reserve handing our government the money, and telling them how much value it has.

Unless I've been naively persuaded with incorrect information, which wouldn't be the first time.

edit - After some lengthy reading, it just isn't as simple as calling the federal reserve system privately owned. It is a quite odd hybrid between the federal government, and privately owned banks. So not really sure why you were implying that the Federal Reserve doesn't apply to the governments part in the credit crisis; if that is what you were getting at.

They look less like zombies & more like Death in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.
