Occupy Wall Street - Come Join Us!

Wall Street's famous bull - from a rare angle

If you ask the Occupation Wall Street protesters what they want (and many people have), you get a mixed bag of replies.

Some want changes to the educational system to improve “fairness” in America.  Others want oil companies to stop fracking (opening cracks in wells to improve oil flow, which may damage groundwater if done incorrectly).  Still others want an end to high-frequency trading and an alternative minimum tax for corporations (I agree with these two).  Many just want America to get “back to Jesus” or work together for a better tomorrow.

Yet, I believe the real reason the number of OWS protesters has swelled in recent days is because it is becoming the best party in 40 years.

Between protests, the OWS hipsters enjoy free haircuts, share melons and avocados, play bongos and accordions, have Micheal Jackson singalongs, trade hemp jewelry and eat discount delivery pizza.  Occupy Wall Street is now the biggest, hippest love-in since Woodstock.

If I were in downtown NY right now, I would definitely stop by.  I might even make a speech or two – something about giving your banker a hug, or that bankers need love too.  But alas, someone beat me to it.  In the live video feed, I saw one of Goldman Sachs’ traders hanging out in the crowd, drinking a beer.

Come join us on Wall Street!

PS - Watch out for the brown acid!

"A "bad trip" is easily caused by an expectation or fear of ill effects, which may later be blamed on "bad acid". This legend was made famous at the 1969 Woodstock festival, when concert-goers were warned to stay away from "the brown acid", which was allegedly bad."
