New York, NY - The “Occupy Wall Street protestors” are remaining in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, and members of the clergy are expected to join the effort later today.

Demonstrators organizing the day’s events at a so-called “general assembly” today, and a large demonstration is scheduled for tomorrow.

Protestors held a peaceful march up to Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village yesterday.

Police say there were no arrests yesterday, compared to the past two Saturdays, when hundreds of protesters were arrested.

Demonstrators told NY1 this morning that they remain part of the protest to keep sharing their message.

“For the most part, the only thing we all have in common is we want equality. We all come from very different backgrounds, very different economic strides, everything. It’s not fair,” said one protester. “There’s so many people that don’t have anything to eat and they’re buying $200 lunches, and we’re paying for it.”

“Message is, you know, I was a business owner and lost my business because of the economy. My dad’s house is in foreclosure because of the economy and being taken away from him right now, and there’s just too much money in too little pockets,” said another.

Protesters last night eventually headed back to Zuccotti Park after several hours at Washington Square Park, which closed to the public at midnight.

Ok, what exactly do they want us to do? I am still confused. Do they want the socialism? Communism? And end to capitalism where the incentives and entrepreneurship is gone? I don't understand how we fix this problem...all I know is that they had some egyptian fellow from Tahir square speak yesterday and compare it to egypt...now this is after I thought in egypt they were fighting for capitalism...it seems this is a movement by the young and stupid and a few old and powerful to change america- let's hope they don't succeed- I have a feeling these are the same anti Israel, zionist haters and u don't have to be einstein to realize what's going on. Us Jews have had a good 70 years....

Really Mark Levin? A day after Yom Kippur, you call them vermin?! What's going on here?!

None of them are protesting corporations in general! All of those people are consumers too! But it's pretty hard to be a consumer when there are no good jobs available, and you've got student debt loans up to your eyeballs!

It's sort of hard to be a consumer when the guy at the top of your corporation is paying himself 1000x what he pays you, and when the company makes less money.... YOU'RE the 1st one to get dropped. No pay cuts at the top, no sacrafice from the richest amongst us... just *US POOR* people getting the chopping block!

Yep... it's pretty hard to be a consumer when these things are going on, and when the deck has been stacked against the common, working man in this country for so many decades!

Our politics is owned by corporate greed, and the corrupted & unfettered Stock Market was a HUGE part of what helped to destroy this economy! And THAT is what these young people are sick to death of, and are finally protesting against!

And may G-d bless them in their endeavors, because if HaShem won't look out for the poor & if people won't do it either then who will? The rich??

We are very lucky that the CEOs of Lehman Brothers have not been identified by the faith. Fuld of Lehman Brothers is Jewish, walked away with millions while other committed suicide due to the loss and the CEO of AIG which sold policies in N.Y. based on the laws of the Cayman Island also is Jewish. It has nothing to do with Zionism [treife by the N.K. and should be destroyed] but with breaking the fiduciary trust and pure greed. Maybe had they seen the SS collecting gold teeth as I saw in Buchenwald they may have had more decency. You are lucky we live in the U.S.

What do these demonstrators really want? They claim they want jobs with a decent wage.

I see them as a bunch of frustrated greedy loosers. Here's why.

The world has and always will have people earning and owning more than others. At what point does that become unfair?

Do all Union jobs pay the same? Some make several times what others make! Is that fair? Sould the waiter or taxi driver make the same as the electrical or nuclear engineer?

Now today's corporations and the people who run them are under tremendous pressure to make profits for their investors. You might not own stock, but if you believe you deserve a job that can pay you a pension, where do you think that money will come from? From investments!

Rich CEO's also loose jobs. Just look around recently how HP's CEO's lost their jobs because the boards weren't happy with them.

Yes, CEO's make much more money but they're worth it. You know why, because the corporation couldn't find a more qualified person for less, otherwise they would have done so.

The real reason job seekers don't get hired is either because there is no need for the skills they're have, or it can be gotten for less.

To fix the problem, is to be flexible and find niches that are in demand.

Nobody wants to buy the corporations old products, they have to keep re-inventing themselves constantly and for less and so does the job seeker.

In essence a job is like being a small businessman providing services to the larger business. If they need your service and you're competetive, you get get it, otherwise you stay unemployed.

Unfortunately there's is no free lunches, and they don't deserve any.

Charity is something else. Let them demonstrate for charity, not for rights that nobody ever gave them.

I was calling them "vermin" the day BEFORE Yom Kippur too.

They dont know what they want. They have no rhyme or reason for what they want. I cant wait for the manure to hit the fan here and we will find out that (dis)organizing for America (aka obama2012) is behind this. They are like nutcase veggie heads who wear leather shoes or belts.

Sherry very well said and the truth. Luck for us that it is not publicized that the head of Lehman and AIG both are are of the covenant of Abraham, total disregard of fiduciary trust, or high tech thievery

Hey Sherry
Sorry but I'm with Mark on this on
They're nothing but a bunch of freeloading ingrates that have have been coddled by our culture of entitlement and a feel good education system, that has convinced them that they deserve everything just because they exist. Most of them don't even know why they are there other than to have a good ol time.
Most have never had to earn an honest nickle in their young "give me I'm entitled to it" life !!

"I was calling them "vermin" the day BEFORE Yom Kippur too."


Yeah! You must be so proud of yourself! I mean, come on man! (eyeroll)

Have you EVER seen me (a Liberal & a gentile to boot!), on here making comments about all of the nonsense costumes, tea bags hanging off of hats, racially and\or violent undertones in a lot of the signage relating to gun laws, etc. (which always cracked me up since President Obama has never said BOO about changing or doing ANYTHING to the 2nd Ammendment, but I digress...just more fear tactics about him always), and other craziness at all of the Tea Party rallies during the summer of the angry Town Halls & whatnot?

No! I mean, I think a lot of them looked ridiculous... but YOU probably thought they looked incredibly patriotic & intelligent, I'm sure. (lol)

And that's ok for us to have a difference of opinion! But I tried (back then, as I do now), to not judge a book by it's cover!

You're on here making a BLANKET statement about the protesters by calling them *ALL* "vermin", as if you know anything about ANY of them, or would even bother to care trying! Let me guess... you make more than six figures, you're one of the lucky 2%?

Nuff said.

Wall Street is being used as a scapegoat for the Obama administration to explain away all of this countries problems.

Please explain:

1. How was Wall Street responsible for the recession? It certainly wasn't the cause of it. There were people earning $80k a year, applying for $1 million dollar mortgages backed by their $750k house. Did they really think that was a smart thing to do?

2. I feel bad for people with student loans, but did they not consider the possibility of not being able to pay back those loans once out of college? That was always a risk. How is it Wall Street's fault?

3. Most surprising, why do people thing Wall Street is responsible for the stock market decline? Who came up with the idea that Wall Street traders control the stock market, or further that they'd want it to plummet?

This whole thing makes no sense.

Mark may be harsh but he is right, these people say they want equality when they already have the only equality they have a right to, america is not a class system where your life is determined by what family you are born into!!! We should know that better than anyone, most of us came here dirt poor and a few or less generations look at us now!!! When they say they want equality they mean they want other peoples money, they are asking to institutionalize theft, not tzedaka. That was a characteristic of the flood generation. No jew should support this, only true tzedaka given by ones own power matters, the material worth in the hands of the poor is not what matters it is the act of giving it that matters, that is what will bring moshiach, not a color tv in every poor home.

First I don't believe you fully understand the meaning of Yom Kippur, you have blinders like horses and your vision is marred. In the Ghetto of Lodz you probably would have been in Sonderdienst and helped the Kripo get rid of all these "klapsydras" emaciated Jews especially those from Germany, old decrepit and in Buchenwald you would have been a lousy Kapo. Ultimately the Sonderdienst did not fare very well despite of their self-rightousness. It takes a vermin type mind to recognize this mentality. Unfortunately I met many like you and they repulse me just as much as the Nazis

The poster Corp. Lehman Brother's had a subsidiary in Germany which went pleite or bankrupt and a story appeared in the Spiegel of an elderly lady who had lost her investment and of having committed suicide. The story about Lehman and the immensity of losses identified the original Lehman [correctly] as a "Jewish immigrant" from Germany . Mark Levin you can be proud of Fuld and his failure and the rest of the default certificates peddled by Wall Street.

Until hoshana rabba your fate is not sealed and I consider the NK far more insidious than the wall street protesters for calling for the peaceful dissolution Israel. I am sure you had a postgraduate session in one of the talmudic institution of Palestine. Do you know Irish, there is a saying "don eyz kol adom lkaf tzichus.

No two of these protesters are protesting for the same reason or cause.

They will accomplish NOTHING.

A year from now, people will say 'Hey, remember when they had those protests at Wall Street?' - and the answer will be 'Yeah. I think I remember. What was that about again???'
