Quote of the Day II
"It remains to be seen whether the Occupy Wall Street protests will change America’s direction. Yet the protests have already elicited a remarkably hysterical reaction from Wall Street, the super-rich in general, and politicians and pundits who reliably serve the interests of the wealthiest hundredth of a percent. And this reaction tells you something important — namely, that the extremists threatening American values are what F.D.R. called 'economic royalists,' not the people camping in Zuccotti Park." -- Nobel Prize economist and NY Times columnist Paul Krugman. His "Panic of the Plutocrats" article from Sunday's Times is a must-read.
