I think you might have missed international concerns? Please keep your mind open to the fact that the US is not the center of the world in this struggle and that what you are part of has been in the international news for some time. Greece is about to default and Europe will, at the very leastm be seriously shaken as a result within the next month. It should be clear that Occupy Wall St. is aware of and connected to a larger context.
