http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brent-budowsky/occupy-wall-street_b_993653.htmlFirst these financial institutions made huge money from the crimes and scams of the financial crash. Then they paid themselves gigantic salaries for causing the crash. Then they begged American taxpayers to bail them out for the crash. Then they paid themselves gigantic bonuses during and after the crash.
They caused and profited mightily from the crash; they asked average Americans to pay for the crash through the scams that caused it; through the bailout; then through Mafia-like interest rates on many credit cards; then by laying off many of their own workers; and now by charging new fees.
The above is a short, partial list of what Americans are being forced to endure in our Grapes of Wrath economy by those who made Gilded Age fortunes from this epic disaster. And then perpetuated their power through massive campaign donations to politicians, mostly Republicans but also some Democrats.
It is time for change; real change. It is time for protest; strong protest. It is time for patriotism; real patriotism where the many Americans are no long ripped off by the few. It is time to mobilize, organize, rally, to stand in the streets with signs and register to vote in elections.
