Woodburn, OR -- Until Friday, all the fallout from the financial crisis hitting the United States has been felt by the common folk. Average, hard-working people have watched literally trillions of dollars in their retirement and pension accounts disappear overnight while financial hot shots walked away scott-free. That ended on Friday.
Friday afternoon the common folk struck back by bombing a West Coast bank.
I believe history will treat this bombing in similar fashion as "the shot heard round the world" when, at Lexington and Concord, Minutemen rose up to challenge the King of England to liberate what would become the United States.
Bankers and other financial hot shots drew first blood when they wrecked years of hard work, steadly planning and disciplined savings. Now, those they've harmed are striking back.
I believe this bombing will be the first of very many. I suspect bankers and other financial hot shots will be made to pay dearly for the wreckage they have wrought. In my opinion, it couldn't happen to a more deserving group of people.
