    We had several threads on OWS. They did have 2 points, after that with all the other groups and people with agends it got mixed up and the media, as they did with the Tea Party, did not present complete view of the movement. They did have people to police their ranks, they were called peace keepers, but as I mention OWS attracted a lot of other "people". In Portland OR, the mental health facilities told people to go to occupy town. They would get free counseling, food and a place to crash. Soon the homeless and druggies dominated the camps. It was a grass root movements, like most Americans they knew something was wrong, like the Tea Party most were not political people and were clueless on how to do things. They operated by consensus which some of the "other groups" and individuals did not follow. It's biggest problems was mostly within itself. There where some very articulated and knowledgeable people in the camps, lets face it, the media needs excitement to sell their baloney.

    OWS here ranged from far left to some Tea Party members. My experience was go to the Salem OR camp and Portland Camp, I wanted to see for myself. I did this with the Tea Party people too. Our media sucks. They can not even get the weather right.

(I'm not talking about this interview specifically, but OWS behavior in general.)
    This nicely goes with this:

    Some of Flaggs questions have little to do with wall street and more to do with our broken higher education system.

    Because people will pay it. Financing is easy and government backed. There is no incentive for the universities to keep it cheap... unless they are some backwater state college (which are disliked by prospective students because their football teams are only FBS or *shudder* NAIA!). Those are still pretty affordable.

    Degree inflation. Years of telling children "you must have a degree to be sucessful" have led to a bunch of sheepskin-holding baristas. A masters is worth approximately what an bachelors was 20 years ago. Meanwhile, the trades are hurting for skilled workers due to the disdain and neglect shown for decades of technical schooling.
