Funny, but just more bull****. I don't blame these people for thinking the only people marching on Wall Street are new age hippies who've never worked in their lives. That's all the media is giving them. I was watching PBS last night. They wandered through the crowd talking to many of the protesters. Many of them are laid off fifty somethings who have been pushed out of their jobs. Some were in their 70s and 80s (greatest generation types) saying this is not the America they grew up in, fought for, or want. Personally, I don't think it matters. The numbers are what counts. The disparity of wealth will continue to grow and these protests will get larger and far more nasty. History doesn't lie. No society can sustain these kinds of feudalist numbers for long.
