Occupy's Next: Global Protests For 'Wealth Distribution'

On the heels of its May Day chaos in the U.S. last week, the Occupy movement plans to hold global protests Saturday with the claimed goal of “social justice, wealth distribution and an ethic of commons.”

Some of Occupy’s rhetoric for the coming protest employs key progressive economic phraseology that is also routinely used by President Obama.

The website lists about 70 cities around the world planning events Saturday, including London, Moscow, New York, Detroit, Toronto and Berlin.

Interestingly, Forbes lists Exxon Mobile as the company enjoying the greatest profits. Number one on their list. Any idea which company is second?
Betcha occupiers use it all the time, yet they don't openly object to it. Yeah, baby. It's walmart, a store I despise for a number of reasons.

650-I can't stand wally world either.

But lets be honest, this whole occupy thing has crashed and burned into a sad joke. I live in DC, went to see the "protests" a couple of times...If you have 15 hippies in a group, since when does that qualify as a protest? It was a joke.
