This is probably THE BEST protest sign from "OWS". It sums up the "investment" vehicle that brought down the financial/banking system. Wonder how many people ACTUALLY know this???

For a further explanation of this toxic "investment" go HERE...

"Don't Cry for Dallas/Ft Worth, Argentina"---See how US cities stack up in production of goods and services relative to whole countries...

The US economy is STILL a GDP producing monster, even in the midst of a recession/near-recession. Below is a comparison of US cities dollar value of production of goods and services with a country that has a similar dollar value of production (GDP). 

Dallas/Ft Worth is ranked number 6 in the US. If it was its own separate country it would have the GDP of Argentina.  Argentina is the 28th largest economy in the world!  Go HERE to see how the other metropolitan areas/country equivalents rank...

OWS protesters really smoked all the grass in the park...No, really they did. Read about it here...

Not literally, but it has been obliterated..."OWS" protesters have killed newly sodded grassy areas that were funded with Federal stimulus dollars...

I wonder if any of them are going to volunteer to pay for their damage or organize to help clean up and restore the park...Rhetorical question---no answer required...

'Occupiers' killing stimulus-funded sod in D.C.

""The Occupy D.C. protests, as Conn noted the other day, continue to violate federal law by camping out on National Park Service Land. Law enforcement officials from the alphabet soup of agencies that police D.C. are letting them get away with it.

You could say they haven't harmed anyone here downtown, except that they have. In McPherson Square, where some two or three dozen of them have been camping out for the last week, they have already ruined a few newly sodded sections of the park. The re-sodding of the park was completed this year as part of
a $419,000 stimulus project to refurbish the square. The park, which is across from the Examiner Building in downtown D.C., was shut down for months during the project.

You could say they're stimulating the economy, because now taxpayers will have to cough up a few thousand more to fix the damage.

What you see in the accompanying photos are portions of the park where tents have been removed recently. In a few spots, the grass is only mostly dead, but in others it's dead and gone, and the new sod has given way to mud. The areas where the Occupiers have their tents pitched right now will be all mud before the end of this week, if they aren't already.""
