For over a week now, a large group of protesters have been trying to garner the world's attention, with very little mainstream success. However, this is changing, as tenacity and time play out.
The message of the protest is simple, "bailing out wall street was bailing out crooks, who continue to steal." Again, not an old message, but the growing success of the movement might point to either an acceptance of a required change or a boiling over.
As the marketwatch article indicates, with protesters being brutally arrested at the beginning, then being taunted by bankers, threatening to "bath the dirty hippies in champagne," things could get worse before they get better.
Now it seems US Marines in dress uniform are beginning to show up to protect the protesters. Could it be that we might actually come to see the military face off against the police? What sort of shenanigans will occur if this group grows to an unmanageable size? Will numbers provide cover for the more aggressive groups that show up at major protests?
This is a story that could easily change things for America and the world.
The media won't be able to ignore it for much longer if things continue to heat up.

Some people think this is history happening before our eyes.
