For those that can't view at work, a quick transcript:
We owe 70 trillion dollars (inaudible) walk out with a 4 trillion dollar solution which is basically a way for the democrats to avoid dealing with this until twenty seventeen. I’m not here to talk about plans to deal with this until 2017, I’m saying we’ve got a real problem and I’m tired of republicans and democrats who either want to burn the place to the ground and the democrats, with all due respect, who want to offer a plan that gets it through their end of their second term presidency and then screws me and my kids when it is over until we do that we have to deal with the extraction that is at foot. It is the reason the financial markets are behaving the way they’re behaving there is a mathematical fact, this is not some opinion. This is a mathematical fact; tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats are not doing it, Republicans are not doing it, an entire integrated financial system, trading system, taxing system, that was created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now and we are sitting here arguing about whether we should do the 4 trillion dollar plan that kicks the can down the road for the president in 2017 or burn the place to the ground. Both of which are reckless irresponsible and stupid, and the fact of the matter is [interjection] is a refusal on both the democrats and republican side of the aisle is to acknowledge the mathematical problem which is that the United States of America is being extracted though the banking, it is being extracted through trade, and it is be extracted through taxes and there is not a single politician that will step forward to deal with this.
[Discussion between Susan Del Percio and Karen Finney about what one guy (The President) can do] What would you like him to do?
I would like him to go to the people of the United States of America and say: “People of the United States, your congress is bought, your congress is incapable of legislation on Healthcare, banking trade, taxes, because if they do it they will lose their political funding, but they won’t do it, but I am the President of the United States and I won’t have a country that is run by a bought congress, so I am not going to work with a bought congress” [Interjection] I am going to abandon the bought congress like Teddy Roosevelt did, and until we get rid of the bought congress and get the money out of politics, and until a president says that is the problem, and says he is going to fix it there is not policy that I could possibly see no matter how brilliant your idea is, [Interjection] that idea will not happen as long as there is the capacity to basically fire a politician who disagrees with me by taking funding away from him, is that a fair assessment?
[Comments from Jimmy Williams “Money in politics, is the root of all political evil”]
How bad does it have to get? How much money has to be extracted, how many things have to be hurt?
[Question from Karen Finney “What happens tomorrow?” (After the Speech)]
Tomorrow, what happens, is you begin the process of actually investing in solving the problem. How? I create a new infrastructure bank with 2% percent lending immediately, once I explain to people the problem, once I explain to you that you have cancer, once you understand how screwed up your trade, that tax and banking polices are, believe me you will have no issue when I incorporate an infrastructure bank that I fund with repatriated offshore money that I bring in and then use to create 2% direct lending to every business in America, because when you realize that the banking system is fully corrupt and defrauding us, and I come out and say that, which is what I want my president to do, at that exact moment I say “you know what, we got a screwed up situation here, we have a screwed up situation here, you all know it and I’m now I am going to admit it”. As a result I have not only admitted it, but we are going to being the process of solving it like grownups, they did it in World War II, they did it after the Civil War, they did it in Latin America with the Brady Bonds, we are not seeing it happen now.
I am not into politics, nor does it matter in this situation, but ▓▓ needs to get done.
I'm all for this man's speech, but I wonder how can we go about to do this?

Impressed, but still not a fan of the 99% movement.
I wasn't too much into it at first, thought it was just any other protest.
Then I recently found out that "occupy wallstreet" transformed into
Quite literally, everywhere. It's spreading globally. Even in my own city there was one scheduled yesterday.
I just wish the media would cover it more so I could see what's going on but they're really avoiding the subject, yet you can see it's going on by looking online.
the "99%", or at least a percentage of the 99%, is getting really pissed off.
According to my newspaper this morning, over the weekend it took place in many cities in over 80 countries on every continent (except Antarctica I suppose, unless penguins participated). Some were smaller than others, but some like in Portugal had thousands of people on the streets. The one in my city had a few hundred only.
Most of them actually set up whole camps too and plan to stay there as long as possible.
I don't think it's something to take lightly anymore.
