How about this for a Occupy anthem. You've all heard and sung "America the Beautiful" (reproduced first below). Following the traditional lyrics I propose "America the Pitiful" to be sung at rallys, demonstrations, and such. If someone else comes up with better lyrics I'm all for it.

"America the Beautiful"

O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain!

America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood From sea to shining sea!

"America the Pitiful"

O pitiful our country is, that's owned by Wall Street banks, For debt piled up eternally How deeply low we've sank!

America! America! God save us from these thieves, And throw them all in jail -- no bail And show them no reprieve!

AHhahahahahahheehehehooo.....funny but too true and so sad as well.

Yep - you know that things are well and truly in the shitter - when the secret service goes on assignment and partys and hires hookers prior ( prior ) to the mission being taken care of.
