    any national strikes.  However, if we can convince people to stop doing business with the Goldman Sachs' and the BankAmericas of this country, then we can drain their power, which is money.  A concerted boycott of all of the financial corporations that harm us as a people is less satisfying in some ways, but is going to e more productive as there can be no real namecalling backlash from the right.  Just freedom to choose where to spend our money.
