Occupy Wall Street . . .

I like what Paul Krugman said:

“…until a few weeks ago it seemed as if Wall Street had effectively bribed and bullied our political system into forgetting about that whole drawing lavish paychecks while destroying the world economy thing. Then, all of sudden, some people insisted on bringing the subject up again. And their outrage has found resonance with millions of Americans. No wonder Wall Street is whining.”

And Mahatma Gandhi:

First they ignore you,

then they laugh at you,

then they fight you,

then you win.

  1. Capitalism is broken; not only in America but throughout the world. Unchecked greed has created its doom. 5% of Americans control 70% of the country’s wealth. The large institutions and super rich control our media, as well as our congress. The 2008 $700 billion bank bailout by congress showed the world that the super rich are in control at the expense of the little guy.
    The 10% unemployed had no voice in the media—-so these people have taken to the streets.
    This is the beginning of a world wide uprising against capitalism. If the rich and powerful fail to see the troubling signs—
    There’s a hard rain that’s going to fall
