Thoughts on the Occupy Wall Street. I am not a part of this movement, but I find them to be dedicated to their cause and personally hope they grow in size.
I have read and heard a lot of comments from the extreme right about them being un-American because they want to change business as usual in relation to corporate greed and the puppets in Congress they control, including the White House.
So far, I have noticed that they do not favor any party and speak out against both, including the president, unlike the tea party, which favors Republicans and are strangely quiet on the tax breaks that the millionaires and corporations get but are very vocal when it comes to cutting Social Security and Medicare and also favor more deregulation to those who gave us this recession.
One Oct. 8 letter in the Herald warns of them trying to destroy the corporations and send us back to the dark ages where Americans would not be able to survive. The writer must have very little faith in the toughness of the American people to overcome all odds.
The Wall Street gang says they don’t understand what the 99 percent want. They are either wearing blinders or don’t care. It seems to me that all the 99 percent really want is their country back and an equal playing field to achieve the American dream.
I feel that politicians who ignore them do so at their own risk come the 2012 elections.
