    In New York City (aka Manhattan, NY) there has been a protest the last two weeks against the Wall St. shennanigans that (along with certain banks) have led the country (if not the world) on the fast track to financial dire straits. Here's an excerpt from Mayor Bloomberg, as he considers putting the kibosh on the whole thing:


    “The protesters are protesting against people who make $40 or $50,000 a year and are struggling to make ends meet,” he said. “That’s the bottom line. Those are the people that work on Wall Street and in the finance sector.”

    Somebody needs to call the good Mayor out on his obvious skewed view of the tier system in the financial world....secretaries, security people, administrative assistants, maintenance workers, etc., ARE NOT THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE THE DECISIONS ON THE TRADING FLOOR, NOR ARE THEY THE MANAGEMENT OF THE VARIOUS INVESTMENT FIRMS, ETC. WHO MAKE THE DECISIONS REGARDING STOCK RATINGS AND SUCH. Those people start off around $80K-$100K (and I'll be lenient to include executive/personal secretaries and assistants). Bloomberg, in an indirect fashion, is regurgitating the current neocon/teabagger mantra.....you bother the REALLY rich folk and we'll take it out on the middle and lower middle class folk.

    The protesters knew EXACTLY who they are exactly protesting....currently they may have to go up against the NYPD. And the beat goes on.

    He wants his slaves healthy. He just doesn't want to pay for it personally.
