I get off PATH and see a marine with machine gun. I get out and see many police and helicopters. Just before entering my building I see a large ows crowd chanting we are the 99 % over and over.
My immediate thoughts were:
1 Nice job Mayor. You could have nipped this in the bud. Instead you have and especially today wasted taxpayer money significantly.
2 the media elite expanded the myth that wall street caused Great Recession. Nice job media. Left unchecked you will be second coming of Pravda.
3 nice job Governor Cuomo. In 2000 as HUD head you mandated 50% of Freddie and Fanny revenues support sub standard loans. Both have cost taxpayers almost $200 billion on way to possible $1 trillion. Albany demonstrations would be more relevant. But even if I stopped to explain this it would be a hard sell. Why? OWS has been brainwashed by the media and pampered by the mayor.
I sincerely hope that the media, Mayor Bloomberg, and Governor Cuomo ( and all politicians ) have learned much from OWS Day of Action.
