Showdown in Chicago
I can't, but believe me if I could, I would be there. It's hard not to like stuff like this:
The same financial institutions that caused the economic crisis and took billions in taxpayer bailouts are back to earning incredible profits. Meanwhile, Americans face shrinking pensions, rising foreclosures and unemployment, state budget cuts, predatory lending, outrageous overdraft fees, and sky-high credit card interest rates.
The American people want oversight, accountability and common-sense financial reform NOW. This is the classic David vs. Goliath fight, with Wall Street spending millions and millions on lobbying to defeat reforms that would protect the American people and our economy
I can't say how much it annoys me to be in a place in my life when I am more motivated to be an activist than ever, but at the same time less able than in any other time in my life to be one, due to economic and health care burdens/limitations. But that's a Feature and not a Bug, right?
