Probably the most incredible thing I’ve ever seen that comes close to the infamous “Let them eat cake” moment by Marie Antoinette. And we all know how that turned out for her, don’t we?
Copied from Wonkette.com.
Here’s the actual video of the Wall Street suits literally drinking champagne and laughing from balconies while thousands of serious and determined protesters march below. The best thing about this video is knowing the cops saw the Wall Streeters do this outrageous Marie Antoinette act. And while some of the cops have been utter assholes, most of the NYPD officers working the protest have been decent and good-humored — and they’re also part of public-sector unions, and they’re also working class people, and they’re also wrestling with collapsing home values and collapsing pensions and an intentionally destroyed infrastructure.
Let’s all drink to the cops remembering the faces of everyone yukking it up and sipping champagne on this balcony.
No one is giving these people the media coverage this important issue deserves.

If you can’t spare anything right now, please repost this feed on your blog or Tweet about it. We need to remove Wall Street corporations from our elections if we ever want to protect our democracy. If we fail, we will have another Bush in the White House – and that’s exactly what Wall Street is praying for.
We need to do ALL we can to make this thing really happen.
