Quote of the Day – Time for us all to get involved…

“The Occupy Wall Street demonstrators are shining a light on one of the most serious problems facing the United States — the greed and power of Wall Street.  Now is the time for the American people to demand that the president and Congress follow that light — and act.  The future of our economy is at stake.”

Bernie Sanders

Senator Sanders hits it right on the head. For my local fans, Occupy Martinsburg is starting this weekend… let’s get out there and see what Shelley Moore Capito (millionaire, btw) is going to do about it.

  1. I’ll be back in NY next week and plan to join in. It’s exciting to see it take root in other cities as well — it’s just: what can we expect? What do we demand? How can change be enacted? It’s obviously a question of bringing back regulations that dear Ronnie did away with in the ’80’s – starting with Glass-Steagul (sp?) but wouldn’t it be nice to see a sort of Nuremberg series of trials? God, if people were held accountable rather than just told not to do it anymore. Of course that would mean congress has to bite that hand that feeds it.
    Anyway I’m glad to see the message spreading.
    Maybe I’m just too old, too cynical
