I love the name of this protest against the G8–“They Owe Us”.  Because as the protesters also ask, “Whose Debt?”  It’s nice to see somebody still remembers those huge bailouts.

Because–at the risk of getting accused of being one of those class warfare people–isn’t it just a little ironic that the powerful of the world are discussing the weak outlook for the global economy at a posh resort with a sprawling golf course?  Yeah, the outlook for the rest of us out here *is* weak, thanks for remembering that.

And by the way, the general manager of the resort is hoping that President Obama will get in some golf while he’s there.  We certainly wouldn’t want our leaders to go without their golf time…
