What Would Make YOU Take to the Streets?

My friend’s daughter has been in OWS for over a week (though we’ll see what happens with the weekend’s snow and rain). Is this “class war?” Those who bandy this term about most are those who think everything’s just dandy now, thank you very much. They are those who think that Wall Street’s switch to a casino economy in which a select few make fortunes by betting which way other banksters’ bets will go is the glory of free America. They are those who argue with religious zeal against any attempt to regulate what banks can do with your (not “their”) money. They are those who think the unfortunate among us uniformly deserve their fate. They are those who have engaged in class warfare for 25 years—and won. What would make you take to the streets?
