Take you through OWS

I find this quote interesting in Dave Ramsey 's article... "A lot of people on Twitter are saying I totally agree with the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) demands and goals. The only problem is that I have no idea what their demands and goals are. And neither does anyone else." Following this playlist helps to see the messages from the different parties. It is always positive to know.. what are the goals, what is the message for any sort of protest or divide. Educate yourself... add to this to Learning Playlist to help build the knowledge of OWS readers.
