Main Street is mighty pissed-off. We're a'itching to have a hangin' party and string up a few bank robber barons in the concrete canyons of Wall Street. But I say, let's just take their money.

Not since the French Revolution has the aristocracy been so worried about their physical safety. Paul Craig Roberts puts these fears in context in his well documented article Trickle-up economics: Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice shame on me, OpEdNews, December 3, 2009.

Roberts cites no less than Bloomberg news for evidence of the fears harbored by those who have raped the financial system and left everyone else holding the bag:

If you're among those about to join the posse, may I suggest you put down the rope. Let's just all get together and stage a protest that will deprive Big Banking of a billion dollars a year.

That's right, and it's all legal. Plus, unlike violence, it will not give the authorities any justification to label Main Street an angry mob and commence cracking heads among the 90% of us bearing the brunt of the economic crisis.

Goldman Sachs executives' guilty paranoia aside, I don't know anyone willing to take such extreme measures, though we all have our fantasies. But, we can hit them where it will hurt by depriving the current banking and finance cartel of income and profits.
