    SEIU? Justice for Janitors? There is something known as trespass. when they stepped onto Wells-Fargo property, they should have been rounded-up and taken in for booking.

    Most of the protestors don't even pay any Federal personal income tax.

    Freakin' losers who are nothing more than lemmings.
