Why I’m Joining the One Percent

    Forget the Occupy Movement Why I’m Joining the One Percent by BRIAN J. FOLEY I marched with Occupy Oakland last Saturday, but I’ve had a change of heart. I’m joining the One Percent.

The One Percent have a government that actually listens to them. Lockheed needs a war to sell goods and services? Coming right up! ... Full Story
