Occupy Wall Street - Demands

I haven't been paying any attention to Occupy Wall Street except for Iowahawk's twitter comments.  But I noted that Fox Special Report tonight Juan Williams likened it to the Tea Party and a clip had former Obama admin. official Van Jones cheerleading for the protests.

So this list of demands from one of the protesters is interesting (yes, it's unfair to draw conclusions from one person).  Of the thirteen demands I think this is my favorite:

"Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the “Books.” World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the “Books.” And I don’t mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period."

The shorter version of this demand is no financial system.

Then there is "demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment" which might be tough to institute after you've destroyed the financial system and has the other problem of running into
"demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live."

Wrapping up our author concludes with "these demands will create so many jobs it will be completely impossible to fill them without an open borders policy." 

The only thing I can add is that when you post something like this you should have to state where received your education,to provide the public with a suitable warning.
