Nassina Ali, of Brooklyn, became an activist associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement after the police smashed her laptop Monday while she was a spectator during a rally in Union Square. But guess who came to the rescue? You guessed it, Apple.
I don't know if Apple told the police to "F" off, but according to the very beautiful Miss Nassina Ali, they fixed her computer for free. Message to all you Apple laptop owners who have a problem with your computer, just tell them the police smashed it while you were protesting at Occupy Wall Street and they'll

Let's get our protest on. Wait in line for the new iPhone. Try to get a table at a restaurant. Buy groceries at Whole Foods. Tickets for Louis CK. Oops.
What's true about Occupy Wall Street is that it made an impact. Whether it was raising the awareness of absurd Wall Street bonuses when firms were being bailed out or stopping Bank of America from charging
customers $5 per month to use their debt cards. The Occupy Wall Street movement had a hand in this. It showed people that they can actually change things if they do stand up.

This Out to Lunch
interview in Vanity Fair with CNBC's Maria Bartiromo is from back in September of 2010, but she presciently says exactly what many of the Occupy Wall Street protesters were thinking and gets to exactly why many of them were protesting.
There's nothing wrong with someone making piles of money but if they make risky bets with piles of money and then still get bonuses and there's no recourse for the risks they take, then there's a big problem with that arrangement. In other words, bailouts with golden parachutes just doesn't fly in any society.
Why, I asked

The third grade class in Woodbrook Elementary School, Albemarle County, Virginia, has an Occupy Wall Street song called, "Part of the 99"
, and it's taking some heat from some who are saying the song incites class warfare and is pure indoctrination.
However, the school says the children came up with the lyrics to the song themselves and they're not going to censure it. If you take a closer look at the lyrics below you can see they are really about being less greedy, selfish, and caring more about others rather than say buying that fourth house or yacht. There's nothing

He works on Wall Street. She occupied it. They're in love.
Although I just don't think this relationship is going to work out in the long run. I'm guessing she runs off with one of the drummers in the drum circle unless her Wall Street boyfriend can get her to marry him before it's too late. The longer she stays down at Occupy Wall Street the harder it will be to win her love back. I think he should propose to her right at Occupy Wall Street's Zuccotti Park. That might win her over. Or maybe he should propose to

Occupy Wall Street protesters shut down the set of Law & Order SVU
, who were setting up their own sort of Zuccotti Park, with a library and a kitchen and even catered food, for an upcoming show. However, it appears the actors and maybe even some of the extras were staying over at the W Hotel rather than in the tents. You don't expect an actor to completely immerse themselves into the scene for a TV show, do you? A movie perhaps but not for just TV. There's some classic lines from some of the protesters as they leave the

Former Occupy Wall Street protester Tracy Postert, who has a doctorate in biochemistry, is hired by a Wall Street firm. Good for her. However, I'm guessing the Wall Street firm is maybe, just maybe, using her a little for the publicity. But I guess it's a win win in this case. She gets a job and they get someone who can research biotech companies and also give the firm some air time.

Comedian Adam Carolla on the Occupy Wall Street generation: "We've created a bunch of self entitled assholes".
Some context here, Carolla of course is perhaps most famous for the Man Show, where their "girls jumping on trampolines" was one their most popular segments. Also, a heads up on the video below, he drops more than a few F bombs in this rant. Everyone has their opinion, but Carolla should read this post from The Reformed Broker

Sorry Miley Cyrus, I know this was done in the best of intentions, but this just doesn't work. I dare you to try to listen to the whole song. I dare you. Come on. Try it. You won't endure more than a few seconds of her singing over the images of the Occupy Wall Street protesters. Yes, it's true the protesters were standing up for what they believe in. It doesn't mean you have to sing a song all over it.
