Occupy Wall Street

In case you have been living under a rock for the past month you should be aware of a very powerful movement that is sweeping the globe.  Occupy Wall Street has now gone global.  The movement has no leader, but many many followers.  They are not the Tea Party, they are not the Coffee Party, they are the people.  They need no label, but if you must, they are America.  This country was founded on disobedience.  Look at our history.  The people have always risen against government in one way or another. 

No one is saying we should take money from the rich to keep for ourselves.  We just want our jobs back.  Big companies or "Job Creators" as the press likes to call them have shipped nearly 3 million jobs overseas to make bigger profits.  They apparently did not see far enough into the future, because the very people they wish to purchase those goods, have no money to do so.  They call us lazy, they call us freeloaders, they call us a mob.  We are none of those things.  We are America.  We need work and we are willing to stand up to those that shipped our jobs overseas to get them back. 

"Job Creators" have done just that, created jobs overseas and turned their back on America.  They do not care about the Middle Class because they no longer need it.  They can easily starve the poor so eventually they can have their Multi-Millionaire country free of us vermin.  Well guess what?  This tactic has never worked.  Follow your history.  Every time the rich have squeezed the poor, there is a revolution, and I can tell you it ends badly for the rich.

We need to bring back the jobs.  We need to become the country the world once envied, but alas, this is not going to happen.  The government is now ruled by the very companies that took our jobs, and they don't give a damn about us anymore.  My only hope is that one day they will be in the same situation as we are, then maybe they will understand what it is like to go hungry and worry about where the rent money will come from.
Are you listening Washington?  Probably not.  You didn't care 20 years ago, why would you care now?  America is awake, and it's protesting at your front door.  Be careful, we are hungry, angry and we bite.
