If you have "no place to go," come here!

Bankster of the day

Bank of America general counsel Gregory Baer:

The Chicago-based grassroots organization National People's Action, in coordination with the SEIU, bused more than 700 workers from 20 states to Baer's neighborhood, one of the wealthiest corners of Washington. The action kicks off several days of protests targeting K Street for lobbyists' role in financial reform.

Baer himself apparently tried to blend in with the crowd until a neighbor outed him. The mob booed loudly as he walked into his house. "I don't have time for you," he said, according to Trenda Kennedy of Springfield, Ill. who used a bullhorn to tell the crowd about her trouble getting a mortgage modification from Baer's bank.

No, indeed, you don't. And never did!

But then we knew that!

what's a lobbyist to do?

I guess move into a gated community.

they should be in front of his office, not his home. What happens when he sics the tea party on activists houses?

the rich always win this sort of fight, that is why we should demonstrate in front of their offices.

I see the point on the symbolism, but the symbol could turn out to be very expensive...

If harassing people where they live is fair play, god-fearin' folks ought to feel free to hassle heretics where they live.
