Self-righteous tourists vandalize Logan Circle Bank

Originally uploaded by In Shaw
I thought it was a mistake when I read the Washington Post about the IMF protesters breaking windows at 14th and P of the PNC and Wachovia banks. Seriously, you have to get through Dupont to get here from the IMF offices. There are banks there. Should Trinidad be on high alert?
On my way back to church I went to take a look and lo and behold, plywood, bringing a little ghetto back to the hood. There was a security guard out in front of Wachovia and the ATM for Wachovia was working fine, as there was a short line. The sidewalks of the 1400 block of P Street were filled with diners. So besides the plywood it was a normal looking Sunday.

Supposedly the vandals had an ideological problem with banks. Something, blah, blah, about foreclosures. You wanna prevent foreclosures? Ban mortgages. Tell people if they don't have 100% the money up front, they can't buy a house.

Oh, but they can't do that! To them, housing is a right. The contradiction would make their brains melt.

And after they vandalized and put a notch on their activist list of achievements, they flew home back to their college town on the airfare that mommy and daddy's credit card paid for.
