I am the nerdy 99%

Everything I needed to know about the Occupy Wall Street protests I learned from Peter Parker's Uncle Ben. "With great power comes great responsibility." Vast amounts of privilege and wealth are power - they come with an equal responsibility. The "1%" have enjoyed the power and privilege, but been terribly irresponsible, to the deficit of the rest of us. It is time to rectify that, and hold them accountable for their responsibility. It isn't class warfare or revolution - it's simple justice.

Something I have never understood is how Bush could just give out all that money in bailouts and not demand any sort of accountability for how it was used. A public school cannot buy a single library book with taxpayer money without permission, the Pentagon can't buy a box of Kleenex on our dime without permission, yet bankers were just handed billions to use as they pleased.

I understand that the Occupy Wall Street movement is really about other issues, but that still makes me angry.
