Rage Against Wall Street Crooks - by Stephen Lendman
Across America, ordinary people want justice long denied.
Angry New Yorkers organized an initiative called "Occupy Wall Street." Beginning September 17, they called for "tak(ing) the bull by the horns," referring to the familiar New York financial district symbol.
Its web site statement said:
<blockquote>"The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%."</bloskquote>
Saying "I am sick and tired of being sick and tired," civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer's epitaph said it her way.
Today, we're all sick and tired of corrupted officials letting Wall Street crooks steal public wealth at the expense of millions ripped off to enrich them lavishly.
Occupy Wall Street activists are angry about "profit over and above all else." Because of political Washington collusion, it dominates public policy in America.
