This week as boycotts began to spread around the nation ...a vast majority of americans vow to this spend this holiday with family, limiting the celebration to a low key meal and no gifts. News of the boycott spread quickly this week after JP Morgan paid the largest fine yet for its swindling of the markets. In response millions have closed out their 401ks and are limiting purchases to basic goods as most would say to send a message to Washington that the American people are too big to fail. As a result the markets are sledding down hill faster than we have ever perhaps seen. Asone boycotter said " we hoped it wouldn't come to this but it seems we had no choice...monopolies are dominating consumers and employees ...Consumer choice has been limited by monopolies and inflated prices. If you need to run out for something ...what are the odds it will be made in US or that a small indie store will carry it? Certainly we must redefine necessities but it is sad we have to squash commerce to prevent putting our money into entities who seek to control the citizenry. Corporations are fundamentally shifting our traditions , our values and culture, and our democracy. The reason ws is allowed to ravage pensions and destroy jobs is because government has created laws that actually make this a requirement and duty to keep shareholders satisfied at any means including workers ( of course pressured by k street to legislate the non importance of citizens who work for major traded companies) At a time when people are hurting wallstreet is inundating us with ads and flash parading themselves like whores, they still want us to give them our money after repeatedly bashing us in the face - they are pretending we are friends. " And say many it is time to change that... proposing monopolies are simply too powerful and as demonstrated with the massive boycott: looks like the people have reached their limit and the proverbial angel aka protest has got its wings back. Back to you Jim.
