The Day America Lost its Way

“The decision to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 provoked dire warnings from a handful of dissenters that the deregulation of Wall Street would someday wreak havoc on the nation’s financial system. The original idea behind Glass-Steagall was that separation between bankers and brokers would reduce the potential conflicts of interest that were thought to have contributed to the speculative stock frenzy before the Depression”. (The New York Times – 1999).

The “Occupy” Movement needs a Protest Song

The “Occupy Wall Street” movement needs a world wide protest song. It’s name should reflect at least one important goal of the protestors. A title could be “It’s Time for Regulation­”. “We’re gonna heal our nation – it’s time – oh yes it’s time – time for regulation­! – I’m no song writer as you can see, but a protest theme is important and music makes a powerful ally in delivering a constant and repetitive message.There must be someone who can produce the goods and keep public awareness alive with a great protest song?
