The more I read and listen and watch news (or pseudo news, really is more of a reasonable name) the more outrageous I find it that these people are not outraged by the news they are reporting. Corruption at every level of Government, bankers operating like drunken frat boys on a first trip to Vegas who have yet to be disciplined in ANY way for their crimes. Perhaps I can justify this somewhat by thinking they are forced to “tow the company line”, I understand big networks are not going to allow their personnel to speak freely.
What I just do not get are the people who post their opinions on news articles, blogs and websites making derogatory statements about the protesters and their passion for this cause. I have to ask them, are you OK with
1-NONE of the banking executives that caused the financial crisis in the US being prosecuted? The very crisis that “We the People” paid for? (check it out at http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/26/business/economy/26nocera.html?pagewant ) OH, and the American Bankers Association has already started spending those $$$’s to get rid of OWS and get the most ABA friendly candidates lined up for 2012, the memo was leaked to the press. (Read all about it at http://upwithchrishayes.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/11/19/8896362-exclusive-lobbying-firms-memo-spells-out-plan-to-undermine-occupy-wall-street-video#.TtGlxoPuONY.twitter )
2-TWO sets of laws? One for the 1% and Congress and one for the rest of us? (See above & check it out at http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18560_162-57323221/congress-insiders-above-the-law/ )
3-Corporations, those entities which were granted personhood and so many jump to their defense, are not acting with conscience as good member of our society. They are acting only in the interest of their Executives and the Share-Holders. To Hell with the workers and the economy! (check it out at http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/money/52979921-79/billion-share-company-stock.html.csp?page=1)
4-Your rights are being taken away, slowly, secretly, behind closed doors, without fanfare. The new Gestapo aka Homeland Security is strategically making moves without our knowledge to take our freedom! Not just mine, not just Democrats, EVERYONE is subject to this if this law passes. (http://www.aclu.org/blog/national-security/senators-demand-military-lock-american-citizens-battlefield-they-define-being)
The bottom line is that CORRUPT politicians are allowing liars and cheaters to steal from us via our tax dollars. They are allowing them to break laws with no repercussions. They are allowing them give our jobs away to help these cheaters. They are taking away our rights one by one. If we do not act now, America will be the next Third World country
Please, hear my words, this is not about Republicans or Democrats. This is not about Liberal or Conservative agendas. This is just plain old right and wrong!
2-How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. 3-Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. 4-Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. 5-They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
