Last week the the Chicago Cash Mob spent hundreds of dollars in small businesses around Chicago. In an age where propaganda is so easy to distribute and power in numbers is becoming a powerful tool for the 99% to achieve results, it only makes sense that the Chicago Cash Mob will get bigger the next time around. We just found out that they've started tweeting their plunders, Facebooking their purchases and blogging their doctrine. Stay tuned for the next mob.
