I went to OWS, and I didn't meet anyone who thinks it's a crime to make a profit. They do think bribing Jefferson county officials to accept fraudulent bond swaps that deprived poor people of sewage service to line Jamie Dimon's pockets with a couple extra billion dollars is a crime. And they're right. The banks are little more than organized crime—a mafia with better political connections than any mob boss could dream of in his wildest fantasy. Also: did you know that $14 billion of your tax money subsidizes JP Morgan Chase's executive yacht fund every year? *That* is a crime.
