Price: $58 for 8 oz Kobe Burger, Braised Kobe, Short Rib, Foie Gras, Gold Leaf, Grey Poupon, and for $9.99 a Patty Melt, Wonder Bread and American Cheese. Interview with Charlie McGrath of Wideawakenews.com
The Occupy Wall Street movement continues, and it’s no secret they are protesting the widening of the income gap and the middle class disappearing. One restaurant in Washington DC jokes about the 99 percent of Americans by making a $9.99 burger on wonder bread and American cheese, while on the other hand the one percent option is a $58 Kobe burger. Charlie McGrath, founder of WideAwakeNews.com, helps us understand the income inequality gap.
McGrath says the 99% have no voice and are completely frustrated in America’s ‘The Land of Plenty’ where the top 1% gobble everything up.
1.3 million foreclosures a year …
1.5 million bankruptcies a year …
McGrath predicts a continual decline in the ever evaporating middle class.
McGrath says the Occupy Wall Street people (going after the too bigs) and the Tea Party people (going after too much government) are protesting the same people. He says that having the OWS and the Tea Party throw insults at each other is exactly what the powers that be want us to do. The winning battle for the people would form as a result of alliance and OWS and the Tea Party vs. Big Government serving the Financial Masters on Wall Street.
