Banks are evil but safer than our tent…

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.

Gee I wonder why the occupy movement might think that an evil bank is safer than having it kept in their camp?

The best post on this is at Sister Toldjah and public secrets:

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.
