    Now the protesters are wearing V for Vendetta masks.

    While Fawkes’ image has been romanticized over the past 400 years, he was a criminal who tried to blow up a government building. It would be hard to imagine Americans one day wearing Timothy McVeigh masks to protest the government or corporate greed. Masked being sold by local vendors, made in China. Oops. Some guy bought the masks online, and is selling them for 5 bucks each. What a capitalist, you know that thing these people are protesting. While Warner Brothers holds the licensing rights to the Guy Fawkes mask, several protesters said they were using foreign-made copies to circumvent the corporation”. I see, they don’t support US corporations but they support a foreign corp that uses under paid workers. So, you won’t buy from a U.S. corporation, but you buy from what is almost certainly a Chinese corporation. You can protest being poor and a wage slave by starting your own business. If only these sitters spent the last 40 days looking for a job instead of demanding one from someone else.
