Occupy Wall Street is an unfocused, spread out, poorly planned protest against the bureaucratic and financial forces that run this country.
And it’s one of the greatest things to happen to democracy since the Revolutionary War.
Nationwide, unemployment is or near an all-time high from state to state. How can this be true when a so-called ‘End To The Recession’ was called in 2009?
Simple. Businesses realized they could survive on less labor while keeping the profits they made due to the tax breaks they were given by the government.
That’s one theory of course. And because opinions are like a**holes there are dozens of other perspectives, positions and pontifications. The most important thing is that Americans are unhappy with the current state of the United States and have taken to the streets to express this dissatisfaction.
These signs are not meant to take away from the importance of the movement, but to give it personality and heart. And if you laugh a little that’s alright too.
