What if thousands and thousands of people made the banks pay to handle return mail bearing OWS messages?

UPDATE: Do you think a lot of voices don't make a difference? READ THIS: Bank of America is nixing its $5 debit card fee.

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
