Ok brother my head is about to explode:
Last week, one or more Occupy Oakland protesters smashed the windows of a Wells Fargo branch.
This week, the group’s general assembly agreed — in a near-unanimous vote Monday — to temporarily place $20,000 of the group’s money in an account at the country’s fourth-largest bank holding company, Wells Fargo Bank.
Speaker: “Down with the corporate fat cats”
Chanting masses of free-thinking drones: “Down with the corporate fat cats”
Speaker: “What do we want?”
Chanting masses of free-thinking drones: “Revolu…”
Speaker (cutting in): “A 3% CD with a 12-month term! Free checking! And No ATM fees!!”
Chanting masses of free-thinking drones (not missing a beat): “A 3% CD with a 12-month term! Free checking! And No ATM fees!!”
The really pathetic thing is, I could see this parody chant happening.
Oh and my November Fundraiser is still going on. Please consider kicking in to help support coverage beyond my driving radius.
Update: Cripes the cops moved in on the occupiers in Berkeley, BERKELEY? I bet those guys wish their money was in Wells Fargo instead of the third blue tent on the right behind the port-a-potties and next to the drum circle.
