How bizarre. About 8 in 10 Americans want to clamp down on Wall Street’s fraudulent behavior?
Someone needs to help me understand what in blazes is going on here. 82% is a scary big super-mega-majority. Where does a really big percentage, like 80% plus, come from? Did someone pull it out of a hat? Did someone conjure it from a lamp? A crystal ball? Ouija boards? Playing cards? Who in the heck is reading the coffee grounds around here? Where on gawd’s green earth does a number like that come from?
I am appealing to you, the inside dopesters having a strong strain of frustrated idealism and just the right touch of hard-boiled cynicism, to lend me a hypothesis, a conspiracy theory, if you will, of who “we,” the 80% are, and who “they,” the other 20% might be. Please try to cast your theory in a form that makes it virtually impossible to disprove.
This could have implications for democracy, and who rules America.
