The above quote is from a sign held at one of the many protests rising up around the U.S. It seems there are a few issues surfacing in these- in the Occupy DC march, the focus was on the war yesterday:
And in NY, JP Morgan Chase, money behemoth, rewarded its supporters:
"JPMorgan Chase recently donated an unprecedented $4.6 million to the New York City Police Foundation. The gift was the largest in the history of the foundation and will enable the New York City Police Department to strengthen security in the Big Apple. The money will pay for 1,000 new patrol car laptops, as well as security monitoring software in the NYPD's main data center.
New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly sent CEO and Chairman Jamie Dimon a note expressing "profound gratitude" for the company's donation."
How nice. They're making the world safe for Capitalism:
