Instead of demanding Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon and the conspirators at Goldman Sachs and the Federal Reserve be arrested for financial crimes against humanity, the OWS socialists will march on the homes of a handful of wealthy people in New York and demand the state not repeal a 2 percent tax and the rich pay a “fair share” of taxes.
