Let Me Eat Steak!

Politics had divided the nation, like Gaul, into three parts-- Liberals, Conservatives, and hypocrites.
-Colleen Shannon
(Original quote made about Prohibition by Florence Sabin)

Occupy Wall Street a protest movement that began in New York City has spread across the country . The protest was started by young Americans "who will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%". The top one percent being the rich (i.e. "the job creators" as they are being called by the Republicans), large corporations, and banks. Some people have tried to marginalize the movement so last Wednesday Jon Stewart, on his show The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, took on the hypocrisy of certain news channels, politicians, and political parties.
