this weekend Occupy Wall Street started to protest in San Diego...the group was both anticipated and and disdained by various factions of citizens here
i think the thing that has bothered me most about the criticism of certain factions around the country is the claim that these people are jealous of that 1% that have 90+% of the money available
those without r jealous ....check out the gals on The View group talking about it
for the most part these women r ardent screamers...and u really have to listen hard to find and get the point and unscramble whats really being said ...but the pictures of champagne drinkers up on the balconies of hotels laughing at the marchers was just so irritating
they have put this country into a disaster of failing middle class employment and greedy corporate lobbyist have successfully bought out the good sense ethics of the major part of our government officials and sent middle class employment overseas
i usually don't get into politics...but to stand by and say nothing now would be like watching a train wreck when i could throw a switch and avoid a disaster
the French Revolution occurred when a ditzy Austrian blonde said the starving populace should eat cake
this Occupy Wall Street group could easily become the advance troops of a revolution against government and corporate shilly shallowing....and gross mistreatment of the populace by both
this employment situation in the middle class thru outsourcing has become more then just a shoe that pinches...the foot is ulcerated and non healing...most of us surmise that without care the foot and leg will become gangrenous and the leg will have to be remove
i'm not waiting for that
we have a part in this 2 peeps
i believe there were those with limited insight who rarely looked below the surface of the spin....and those who knew but wanted the profit...support for school etc...and figure the economy could always right itself like a cat jumping from a tall bookcase because like it or lump it
DIS CAT HAS USED UP THE LAST OF IT'S 9 LIVES
blame game be damn...step up everyone...choose to admit ur part in it if u have one...and let's make it right!!!
lost homes due to bankruptcies...money loaned to prop up banks who won't give refinancing to homeowners who may lose homes....banks who won't advance credit to those who have shown themselves to be deserving...they seem to have forgotten million of taxpayers bailed them out
when the youngsters out there have no jobs and no money to buy more beer their feet will pound the pavements just like ours did
of course we marched for ideals..but as they get into this they'll be marching for ideals and virtues 2
interesting isn't it
being non virtuous is clearly taking the economy of this country down
GREED is beginning to be seen clearly...questioned... and damn by the populace at large...
greedy capitalism will soon be taking a real punch in the nose
now if we can start manufacturing in America...and buying American we'll have a start toward recovery and middle class respect
put those jobless youngster to work fixing the old bridges... buildings and roads...they want to do more then flip burgers at fast food places
give them a reason to respect themselves
i know this is a kinda FDR solution but hey...it worked 4 him!!!
B of A want to charge us a fee for the use of our own debit card....charge us to use our own money!!
GIMMEE A BREAK!!!!!!
where do i go to sign up for the revolution???
i was a protester in the 60's...living in San Francisco when the House on Unamerican Activities came there...publishing the names of all they intended to speak to before the fact and implying they WERE Communists
i was one of many who got washed down the steps of the Courthouse by the fire department
so i've won my stripes in the protest arena!!
thank goodness for free speech
and i hope this protest group will grow and grow
check out Chad Deal's blog about Occupy San Diego for another slant on this group
and is anything manufactured in America anymore???
personally i'm tired of only speaking to voices from other countries i don't understand when i need to sort something out about a credit card or such
