CROOKS AND LIARS – Post:
Friday morning there was a massive protest in Detroit over the water crisis there. Netroots Nation attendees gathered together with National Nurses United to make a statement about how immoral and cruel the water shutoffs to poor people are.
See Al Sharpton’s coverage HERE. Al’s comment, “the City’s whoops” on the backs of the people is very telling. The City of Detroit, like many other American cities, counties and states, were sucked into bad, unregulated Wall Street securitized investments. Yeah, “whoops” – as in ‘sorry you got screwed… IBG-YBG.’
Take a look at this Complaint – just to give you an idea of how invested Detroit was in MBS. Wall Street didn’t care if they bankrupted a city – they probably figured the government would bail the cities and states out too! Apparently, major American cities are Not Too Big To Fail. And who has gone to jail?
There was at least one arrest. https://twitter.com/OccupyWallStNYC/status/487445817381638145/photo/1
