What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

Have you noticed?

Has anyone noticed the plethora of multi-media presentations--- especially on YouTube--- that are slickly produced under all kinds of names of "organizations" we have never heard of before but mislead people into thinking the "enemy" is always someone or some institution other than Wall Street?

Apparently there is a group of very well-heeled people who have the financial where-with-all to hire Madison Avenue advertising firms using Hollywood theatrics who think they need to re-direct the hit Wall Street has taken from Occupy Wall Street.

No matter what the future of Occupy Wall Street and no matter its problems, this movement did succeed in pointing the finger directly at our enemy--- Wall Street.

And, apparently, now, Wall Street feels the time is right to try to shift the focus and the spotlight from itself to everyone and anyone and anything other than itself to blame our problems on.

You can pay your ten dollars to join any movement that will lead you to take up the fight and the struggle against anyone or any institution other than Wall Street.

Slick as shit! With a good strong whiff of fascism.
