Subject: Actual quote from protesters occupying street of Toronto's stock exchange - this says it all

Actual quote from protesters occupying street of Toronto's stock exchange...

"It's weird protesting on Bay Street. You get there at 9 a.m. and the rich bankers who you want to hurl insults at and change their world view have been at work for two hours already. And then when it's time to go, they're still there! I guess that's why they call them the one per cent. I mean, who wants to work those kinds of hours? That's the power of greed." - Jeremy, 38

My reply:
A little Googling and I found that this was comment made at the one week anniversary party of copy-cat protest and was meant as satire. Shame on _______ for not fact checking

the person who sent it around
then replied
Neither ______ nor I have the time, nor are we paid to, fact check these sorts of things. Nonetheless, Im positive this is a common feeling among the OWS cabal, that they indeed have no concept of hard work / long hours it takes to get to the mythical 1%.

It that point I gave up--waste of time
