Primero fue "We are the 53%".
Y ahora un capo que labura en Wall Street mandó esta carta a los del Occupy Wall Street en Chicago:
"We are Wall Street" (click para ver entera o transcript abajo del break).
(Gracias, Rodrigo, viene de este post).
"We are Wall Street. It’s our job to make money. Whether it’s a
commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it
doesn’t matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I
didn’t hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000
and everyone’s 401k doubled every 3 years. Just like gambling, its not a
problem until you lose. I’ve 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 somewhat, 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.
Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt
yourselves. What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street
anymore? Guess what: We’re going to take yours. We get up at 5am &
work until 10pm or later. We’re used to not getting up to pee when we
have a position. We don’t take an hour or more for a lunch break. We
don’t demand a union. We don’t retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what
we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates,
we’ll eat that.
For years teachers and other unionized labor
have had us fooled. We were too busy working to notice. Do you really
think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing
landscaping? We’re going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4
months off a year and whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid
for building the youth of America. Say goodbye to your overtime, and
double time and a half. I’ll be hitting grounders to the high school
baseball team for $5k extra a summer, thank you very much.
now that we’re going to be making $85k a year without upside, Joe
Mainstreet is going to have his revenge, right? Wrong! Guess what: we’re
going to stop buying the new 80k car, we aren’t going to leave the 35
percent tip at our business dinners anymore. No more free rides on our
backs. We’re going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a
garden hose in our driveways. Our money was your money. You spent it.
When our money dries up, so does yours.
The difference is,
you lived off of it, we rejoiced in it. The Obama administration and the
Democratic National Committee might get their way and knock us off the
top of the pyramid, but it’s really going to hurt like hell for them
when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and
knock them to the bottom.
We aren’t dinosaurs. We are smarter
and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive. The question
is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Mainstreet
our food supply…will he? and will they?"
