all right we are two nations

In reaction to the Occupy Wall Street movement, a group in Minnesota put up this bill-board:

In the past thirty years our tax code has been completely re-written to benefit the rich, our jobs have been sent over-seas, productivity per worker has doubled yet wages have been hammered down by at least 30%, economic inequality has grown to Gilded Age proportions, basic healthcare has become unaffordable for the working classes, millions have lost their homes due to predatory lending practices, bail-outs that were supposed to prop-up "key sectors of the economy" have been paid out as bonuses —
but somehow the people objecting to this are the "covetous" ones?
