  1. If they have to march why not do it some place like DC or even our own Federal Buildings. ITs the feds that need to make the reforms. Doing it downtown just annoys the bankers and such that are there trying to make a living and does nothing to further their cause.

    I guess that is what bugs me about marches, unless you do it in front of the entity that can affect change for your cause all you do is inconvenience a lot of innocent people.

    I do have to admit however am resisting an urge to grab a camera and talk with some people to find out exactly what they want done and who they expect to do it for them, details not the usual march rhetoric is what I’d like to know first hand.
