Alternate Titles for "Day Without Goldman Sachs"

On December 12, Occupy Wall Street (OWS) attempted to shut down  West Coast ports from Anchorage to San Diego. Protesters said  that by shutting down the ports, they could shut down Wall Street’s profits.
OWS organizers called their event  “Day Without Goldman Sachs.” They also could have named their port protest:
As reported in a recent Gallup poll , most Americans view big government, not big business, as the biggest threat to the United States. If Occupy Wall Street is a democratic organization, as its supporters allege , the group will quit threatening the economic well-being of U.S. truckers, farmers, and teachers and start protesting out-of-control government spending instead.
