I nearly fell off the floor when I ran into this tidbit from the Wall Street Journal, of all things (as pointed to from Real Clear Politics):
How Congress Occupied Wall Street
Now I would have titled this "How Wall Street Occupied Congress", but it is a small quibble, because, ultimately they are one and the same assholes.
Sure, a problem right away is the 1st sentence, kinda hidden under the title before the gratuitous Mark Twain quote:
"Politicians who arrive in Washington as men and women of modest means leave as millionaires."
No one arrives in Washington with modest means anymore. They are all well up there in the 1% already upon arrival. But her thesis is still roughly okay.
A lot of the writing appears to be some of the most cogent stuff from this beauty queen contestant.
"This call for real reform must transcend political parties. The grass-roots movements of the right and the left should embrace this. The tea party's mission has always been opposition to waste and crony capitalism, and the Occupy protesters must realize that Washington politicians have been "Occupying Wall Street" long before anyone pitched a tent in Zuccotti Park."
I think there is hope yet for this silly country. There must be a way to harness the common ground of the 99% both at the voting booth and at the stores. Don't buy from the 1%, don't vote for the 1%.
Can Sarahcuda & Noam Chomsky get on the same page???? LOL
