If Marie Antoinette Were a Trader

Someone in the Chicago Board of Trade dropped leaflets on top of “Occupy Chicago” protesters Wednesday afternoon as they rallied alongside unions in the city’s financial district.

“We are Wall Street,” the leaflet said. “It is our job to make money.”

“Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt yourselves,” it continued. “What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We’re going to take yours.”

“Do you really think we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping?” the leaflet asked. “We aren’t dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive.”


Previously, Chicago traders dropped flyers on the protesters that said, “We Are The 1 Percent Paying For This, You Are Paying For 1 Percent Of It.”

Raw Story

The vicious part I don't doubt, but I question the smarter part. And the landscaping.
