    Here is a link to the website selling them, who explains the intention:

    “We need your help to raise the funds to print up a thousand decks of cards to give out on the street for free on September 17, the one year anniversary of the first U.S. occupy gathering in New York City, and in the weeks following. While occupiers are no longer in the park, they are hard at work figuring out how to use people-power to hold big time finance guys and institutions accountable for the total mess they have caused. We think the cards will be a great way to bring people – including you! – into the issues. (Do you know what a CDO is, or how the banks are using it to continue their subprime lending? Well, you should, and the information in this deck, and on our site, will help). Especially as we come up to the election, these issues are very salient.

    The money we raise will also go to paying production costs on the project, including a stipend for each of the 28 freelance artists for their time and talent. That way you aren’t just paying for stuff; you are paying to support a community of hard-working artists who tell great stories and want to be able to afford to keep telling them. ”

    Malignant Narcissists – Malignant narcissism has been described as “an extreme form of antisocial personality disorder that is manifested in a person who is pathologically grandiose, lacking in conscience and behavioral regulation, and with characteristic demonstrations of joyful cruelty and sadism” – Rule…. and We The People are their Drones – “A drone is someone who follows a schedule and doesn’t change it”.
    WE THE PEOPLE have been programmed to serve the Interests of CentaMillionaire$ and Billionaire$!
    The ugly continues on!

    Magnetar was interesting. They would buy the top trsnche of a CDO, the first to take losses, which no one wanted, so the deal would get done, then they’d bet against the other tranches below. How’d you like to find out Magnetar had a life insurance policy on you? Also, they were in Evanston, not Chicago.
