Perhaps even a Wall STreet banker or two are having nightmares these days. Perhaps.

Nightmare on Wall Street

Do any Wall Streeters possesss even a modicum of conscience? I certainly think they do not. The two-minute video below, in the form of a commercial from the National Nurse Association, captures the utter disregard for the 99 percent held by Wall Street Bankers. It invites you to sign their petition, which I would urge everyone reading this to do.

As the commercial so deftly demonstrates, Wall Street shenanigans have extracted their price from people in all walks of life: pensioners, students overburdened with student loan debt, homeowners who have become homeless or whose homes are now worth less than the mortgages they hold on them, savers, small business owners - everybody but the one percent.

Thanks rama devi. I thought the Rod Serling thing was a good touch as well.

Nice kick again, Steve, not the butts but directly to groin of the 1 per cent wise guys and fat cats.

I'd like to bet that the bankers are resting easy. No conscience, you see.

You ask, "Do any Wall Streeters possesss even a modicum of conscience?" I recognize a rhetorical question when I hear/read one!

PS: Marx's (per Madan's comment) ideas seemed morally sound but simply do not work. Why? The underlying trait of GREED in people undermines, ultimately, any well-intended system of government.

Do we come into the world greedy? As a therapist, I would trust you've concluded we do not. I think we are all born loving, caring and peace-loving, but we are conditioned into 'greed is good'. Thanks for commenting David.
