Matt Taibbi wrote a great story about all the Occupy Wall Street complaints, what I find interesting is the confusion of the OWS message that he leads off the story with — as I have said this is the biggest problem of the movement, vague goals and messages. Beyond this, I love this passage by Taibbi:

It is virtually impossible to not make money in banking when you have unlimited access to free money, especially when the government keeps buying its own cash back from you at market rates.

Your average chimpanzee couldn’t fuck up that business plan, which makes it all the more incredible that most of the too-big-to-fail banks are nonetheless still functionally insolvent, and dependent upon bailouts and phony accounting to stay above water.

Nice summation of the recession we find ourselves in.
