The Old Soldier woke up this morning to media reports that the anti-corporation movement is spreading throughout the world: in the USA, in Canada and Europe.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is only a few weeks old. Off-shoots of the movement are in over 200 American cities. Occupy Pittsburgh had its first march and protest yesterday. And the news pundits on Sunday morning television all agreed that whether or not these world-wide anti-corporation movements can sustain themselves, the underlining universal conviction of corporate greed and corruption having a devastating impact on the lives of middle-class and working-class citizens will remain.
In the USA, the 99% know that the leaders of the Democratic and Republican Parties are in bed with the 1%.
