Hello Wall Street, meet some folks from Main Street

New York's Wall Street is not the only place in the world where plutocrats wield power. Yet I think it's a wonderful spot for those of us in the bottom 99.95% to show up, and remind them we're starting to realize they are not our friends. Your town might not have a nice bronze bull to symbolize corporate greed. But maybe it has a branch of Bank of America. Whatever the target, now is a great time to remind our corporate overlords we're not yet completely subjected to their yoke. Did you just pay your taxes? Why don't you ask Bank of America why it didn't pay a nickel, after a year in which it raked in many billions of dollars of profits. Have a great weekend, and offer up some thanks to the union workers who died so you could enjoy a day off from work!

I thought you might get a kick out of this one-- A Republican with a med voucher
Went to the ER with an oucher.
She wasn't aware
With no Medicare,
The free market would
Rip off and gouge her.

That is GREAT. We need to be reminded that people died fighting for labor.
