Comments Off on Nonsense: Occupy Wall Street Protesters Take a Break to Buy Stocks

A few protesters take a quick break to check their 401Ks and make a few trades within their TD Ameritrade accounts. Turns out they’re all buying Goldman Sachs. Yes, they’re buying the vampire squid’s stock. The stocks is trading under $100 share and was just too much of a steal to pass up, they said.

Plus, Satan controls Wall Street anyway, so there’s not much they can do about it. Don’t tell anyone though, OK? We’ve got to keep this under raps for a while, as you can see, we’re trying to run a protest and Occupy Wall Street, not day trade. I don’t know what Michael Moore would do to us if he found out.

Of course this is all nonsense, the protesters aren’t buying stocks while they’re protesting (we hope), and certainly not Goldman Sachs. The Occupy Wall Street is a movement that just seeks fairness, and nobody can say they have a problem with that. Wall Street is perhaps taking too much of the blame right now, as others are complicit as well, buying homes and taking out loans they couldn’t afford, but when Wall Street pays out big bonuses during a crisis or gives fired employees golden parachutes, who can blame the protesters for targeting them.
