or tune in to 880 am (S. Florida)
If you haven’t figured out yet, a whole lot of people are really mad about the state of things, including the economy. A bunch of people voted for “change,” and the economy didn’t. Another group of folks figured they’d let the market fix itself, only to get fixed by the market. In the meantime, as we have covered over, and over, and over, people are being thrown out of their homes, losing their livelihood, and virtually killing themselves. All the while, politicians-Democrats and Republicans alike- have decided that the best thing to do is to stay sucking.
Well, we sort of figured this was going to happen. The basic feeling in the country is that the greed of the top 1% and Wall Street is more to blame for the economic suffering of millions than any other single thing. Some folks are so fed up, that they decided to take it to Wall Street! Unless you have been under a rock for the past couple weeks, you will know that a bunch of people converged on Wall Street and decided to stay there until something changed. We covered it on our show a few weeks ago. But what started out modestly has spread, even to other cities. In fact an #OccupyMiami meeting just took place this weekend. Is this the American Fall version of the Arab Spring? Do people have a plan or just a complaint? Who are the 99% they keep talking about? Do you feel inspired to turn up or tune out?
Well, at least tune in to us to talk about it. In the meantime, check out these links if you wanna catch up
