Remember Occupy Wall Street?

I know there’s been a lot of sparkly things to draw your attention away from stuff like the economy, but do you remember the clash between Wall Street and the ‘Occupy’ movement back when the whole world seemed to be going down the toilet?  Well, Occupy Wall Street just won.  Seeing as how they’ve been out of the public eye for  ages now, how could that be?  Simple — they made the idea of ‘us vs. them’ (with us being the 99%) a central part of the middle-class conversation.  And now that Ms. Clinton is having to face socialist Bernie Sanders, that conversation has become central to the 2016 Presidential Election.  Well, the Democratic part, anyway.

So how about that, you aging hippy wannabees — you actually accomplished something after all.  Thank you.
