But a ray of hope and light as well as the potential for a change in the status quo has emerged in 2012 with the election of Elizabeth Warren ~ a formidable and authentic agent of change. She is also Wall Street's biggest headache and rightfully so ~ the Dow Jones was down over 300 points the morning after her election. Here are some of her most memorable quotes ~
“Wall Street C.E.O.’s ~ the same ones who wrecked our economy and destroyed millions of jobs ~ still strut around Congress, no shame, demanding favors, and acting like we should thank them,” she said in her speech at the Democratic National Convention in September.
“The people on Wall Street broke this country, and they did it one lousy mortgage at a time. It happened more than three years ago, and there has been no real accountability, and there has been no real effort to fix it,” she said in a debate last year.
The times, they are perhaps a changing ~ but let's wait and see if Elizabeth Warren is made chairperson of the Senate Banking committee ~ then I might be convinced.
However, I will indeed be the first to predict that Senator Elizabeth Warren will be a presidential contender in 2016 and a Warren/Grayson ticket would indeed stir the masses ~ but most certainly not the corpocracy.
