Wall Street recently struck back by dropping leaflets on the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Kinda like OWS "let them eat cake" moment?

Heres what the leaflets said:

We are Wall Street. Its our job to make money. Whether its a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesnt matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I didnt hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 13,000 and everyones 401k doubled every 3 years. Just like gambling, its not a problem until you lose. Ive never heard of anyone going to Gamblers Anonymous because they won too much in Vegas.

Well now the market crapped out, & even though it has come back some whatever, the government and the average Joes are still looking for a scapegoat. God knows there has to be one for everything. Well, here we are.
