I truly have mixed feeling about whether I want to see a bunch of signs on Wall Street reading: "We Came Unarmed...This Time"

I mean, fuck, this was plenty OK with the world when Dick Armey and the Kock Brothers shipped TeaBaggers to events in Washington, D.C.

Stoop to their level? I sometimes wonder, Why the fuck not?

My first (and wrong) reaction to the now infamous Board Of Trade windows pic was:

"OK. That's cool.

Torch the first floor."


Beats the fuck out of --- "Morans!"

"Kochs' Chemicals Poison Us ... What Should WE do?"

I assumed that whole thing where the bankers trashed our economy, took our money, and then started making obscene profits and handing out bonuses with more zeros than I can count while they gouged the very consumers who gave them the money must have been a figment of my imagination because no one ever mentioned it except the occasional nutty left wing blog.

I am glad to see that someone else besides me actually remembers this.

Occupy Detroit starts 10/21. It will be my first protest.

The knob doesn't work hard - he pushes money around and his gain is privatized while his losses are socialized.

That nurse works really hard and gets nothing but a reduced paycheck and retirement for actual services provided.

What knob also doesn't realize that his pile of money is getting smaller. By his own doing.

from real time, the rite is calling them hippies.
