So, I've been hearing a lot about how the Occupiers of Wall Street are defused, confused, do have not coherent message.
I didn't really think too much about it until my CEO banker BFF called me up and asked me to go down there and investigate for him.
So, like any good, willing tool of the oligarchy, of course, I complied immediately.
Below the croissant, lots of photos.
"Guilty Bankers Should Be In Jail?" Heavens, he's not suggesting anyone on Wall Street has committed any crimes that have gone unpunished, is he? If that were the case the Department of Justice would surely be all over that. We do live in a nation ruled by law, after all.
It did seem to be something of a recurring theme though:
My banker CEO BFF is really going to have his feelings hurt if I show him these.
Give me back my future. Hmmmm... You mean the American Dream that is slipping away so quickly for the middle class?
Hmmmm... I guess it could be kind of depressing to borrow tens of thousands of dollars or more to keep up with skyrocketing college costs and be thrust into a market with no jobs. Surely they're working on bailing these kids out right?
I think the kids will be allright, eventually.
"Teachers 4 Revolution?" What's wrong with a world where millionaires get tax cuts and we're told they can only be financed by cutting the salaries and benefits of public union workers?
Jeez, National Nurses United Union was picking on the poor bankers as well?
Looks like the NYPD may be developing a public image problem:
"Dear Police Officer, Please Don't Spray,
I'm hear to save your union pay."
Buying politicians? Surely she's not suggesting there is something untoward about the relationship between Wall Street and Washington, DC?
I think these people are too though?
Wait, is it possible not everyone can retain a Washington lobbyist to get their message to DC?
What can they possibly do then?
I guess if the Villagers are still confused what #OccupyWallStreet is really all about, I can only offer two words to them:
7:40 PM PT: Please note: I gift all these images into the public domain. Credit is nice, but propagating the message more so. Share them, use them freely. They belong to #OccupyWallStreet and the people.
9:38 PM PT: Unbelievable. This news from Occupy Chicago via the Chicagoist:

Someone at the Board of Trade is getting cheeky with the Occupy Chicago protests. This photo was taken by someone at the protests. It shows offices at the Board of Trade Building eight stories up with "We Are The 1%" taped to the windows. If only someone could hurl rocks that high.They really are dicks aren't they?
