… No one here in Zuccotti Park is protesting Wall Street. Wall Street is just an address, just a street sign on a post. The 99% Movement is about Them:

  • the 1%. The 1% who own Wall Street and all our streets and have posted a foreclosure notice on the entire planet.  
  • The 1% who get the gold mine while we get the shaft.
  • For five years, I’ve been quietly working on a four-continent investigation about Them, the 1%.
  • I’ve put it all in a new book.

I could have called it Lives of the Rich and Shameless, but I’ve chosen this: Vultures’ Picnic — in Pursuit of Petroleum Pigs, Power Pirates and High-Finance Carnivores … (full text and more).
