1,200 'Occupy Wall St.' Products For Sale On eBay - To Help You Fight Capitalism

In the battle of Capitalism vs. Socialism, score one for making a profit.

The Occupy Wall Street (and Everything else) protest has loudly proclaimed its goal of taking down Wall Street. As they explained their anti-corporate creed in the “Declaration of Occupation”:

“We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments.”

But capitalism and free markets have a way of winning on their own. And Occupy Wall Street is no exception.

As of Tuesday, there were 1,200 “Occupy Wall Street” products available on eBay – for purchase.

That’s right. The anti-capitalist running dogs are selling everything from T-shirts to dollar-bill art and even hoodies. You can’t protest 24-7 without the best all-weather gear.

Some highlights include:

- Occupy Wall Street Or Your City Rally Signs – just $7. Dr. Don's Buttons, in Glendale, AZ, “Ten 12 x 18 Hand Held Rally Signs,” complete with the “V for Vendetta” face on them. (Probably a copyright violation, but who cares, we’re rebels!)

- Domain Name – WeOccupyWallStreet.Com. It’s got a starting bid of $5,000, so whoever buys it might not be the 99 percent after all.

- “V For Vendetta Anonymous Guy Fawkes Costume Masks Occupy Wall St.” -  What best-dressed protester can leave home without one?

    Since Occupy Wall Street is costing millions in police overtime and hurting nearby businesses, it’s nice to know it is adding something to the economy.

    Do these count as saved or created jobs under Obama?
