Take On Thursday

Jim Hightower

Instead of griping about the greedheads of Wall Street and the rip-off financial system they’ve hung around our necks — why don’t we “Take On Wall Street”?

You don’t have to be in “Who’s Who” to know what’s what. For example, if tiny groups of Wall Street bankers, billionaires and their political puppets are allowed to write the rules that govern our economy and elections, guess what? Only bankers, billionaires and puppets will profit from those rules.

That’s exactly why our Land of Opportunity has become today’s Land of Inequality. Corporate elites have bought their way into the policy-making backrooms of Washington, where they’ve rigged the rules to let them feast freely on our jobs, devour our country’s wealth and impoverish the middle class.

“Take On Wall Street” is both the name and the feisty attitude of a nationwide campaign that a coalition of grassroots groups has launched to do just that: Take on Wall Street. The coalition, spearheaded by the Communication Workers of America, points out that there is nothing natural or sacred about today’s money-grabbing financial complex. Far from sacrosanct, the system of finance that now rules over us has been designed by and for Wall Street speculators, money managers, and big bank flim flammers. So — big surprise — rather than serving our common good, the system is corrupt, routinely serving their uncommon greed at everyone else’s expense.

    Need more workers in the salt mines.


  3. I’m sitting on my balcony with a nice, cold brew! It’s warm enough, 32 degrees centigrades.Don’t ask me how much this is in Fahrenheit. We have been working the metric system in Europe for thousands of yars. The situation in this area of Turkey is calm, but in the border area with Syria, fighting is going on. I’m descended from yhe Vikings, but we stopped fighting several hundred years ago, after the crusades in the Midle East. Today, we are a peaceful people, and have been so for quite some time. The last time we where involved in a conflict, was when the Germans attacked us in 1940, and we ended up beeing occupied for 5 years. During that period, the Norwegians was engaged in a strong resistance against the Germans. My uncle, who Iæm named after, spent 3 years in a German consentration camp, and luckely, he survived the ordeal. Chers for now!

    I wish there was good scenery here, just tobacco-spitting-snaggel-tooth old hags with deformed children and dogs, slim pickens.
