How does it feel, Titans of Wall Street; to helplessly watch your kingdom tumble down? That's what it was like for Nancy, a 74 year old New Yorker with multiple health problems, when someone bought her apartment building and decided she could not live there anymore because they wanted it all. Her kingdom came crashing down around her, out of her control, and she wound up in a shelter where she knew no one. She worked all her life contributing her labor to the economy that enriched the Dow so generously, and when her world came crashing down, she was invisible to you.
So if I have no sympathy for the Wall Street hucksters--yeah, the same ones who conspired with "W" to try to steal our social security trust (?) fund, and the future benefits of our children--you'll just have to understand. I'm a compassionate person, but not for the likes of you.
And on that note, I'll end with a shout out for a mother I do have sympathy for--read her statement on "Dishonorable Chickenhawks" protesting the upcoming September 15 march against the disgusting war spectacle that's ripping off taxpayers and cheating our troops. Cindy Sheehan's statement is here.
