It's a good time to be a socialist, just sayin'. Check out http://socialistworker.org/2008/10/10/700-billion-for-the-rest-of-us for a decent graphic about where that money (not to mention the trillion that has gone to war, could have been spent were we all making those decisions instead of a Congress who apologizes while pulling a reverse Robin Hood.

One cool thing: we've been seeing eviction blockades in Boston (folks parking it on the front stoop to keep the constabulary from tossing tenants out onto the streets). And a sheriff in Chicago has flatly refused to execute eviction orders.

Fuck you, Bank of America.

K: You (and the news about eviction blockades and heroic sheriffs you bear) are so hot that I kinda don't know what to do with myself.

Bank of America: You (and the greed-praising, house-stealing, poor people-enslaving corruption you rode in on) can go defenestrate.
