MONEY RULES WASHINGTON Nobody feels as if they have any representation in Washington, and they feel like Washington is owned by the corporations. For once, they've actually figured something out correctly. I think that a lot of us had hope that Obama, being as bright as he is, would be a force for change. But the way the system works is that in order to get any office, you have to spend serious amounts of money, which means you have to make deals with the guys who have the money. That's where we lost control of our country. I don't think that's what the framers of the Constitution had in mind.
PERFORMING AT OCCUPY I was very nervous, struggling through this crowd and I'm standing on this stone in Zuccotti Park. I've got no amp and I'm singing at the top of my lungs, and all of a sudden, they're all singing along with me and Graham [Nash]. That's when it felt good. It made us get excited, like we were doing our job. I felt like Woody Guthrie was listening over my shoulder.
