@NYTimesKrugman: Panic of the Plutocrats | #OccupyWallStreet #classwarfare

Yet the protests have already elicited a remarkably hysterical reaction from Wall Street, the super-rich in general, and politicians and pundits who reliably serve the interests of the wealthiest hundredth of a percent.

“Wall Street’s Masters of the Universe realize, deep down, how morally indefensible their position is.”

Too many gems to list here. Go read it now.

  1. Dear lamestream media: The more you shriek about the horrible protesters challenging capitalism, the more people will take notice of how full of shit you are. If you want this protest to go away, maybe you’d best shut up about it. Love, Society.
