What Main Street Thinks about "Occupy Wall Street"

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

I saw this in the New Times the other day--A gentleman wrote in to the editor and it pretty much sums up what I have been thinking! I am not going to put the gentleman's name down only that he is from Wisconsin--

"To the Editor:

In “In Private, Wall St. Bankers Dismiss Protesters as Unsophisticated” (Business Day, Oct. 15), the views of “one longtime money manager” are summarized as follows:

“He added that he was disappointed that members of Congress from New York, especially Senator Charles E. Schumer and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, had not come out swinging for an industry that donates heavily to their campaigns. ‘They need to understand who their constituency is,’ he said.”

And that, ladies and gentlemen, tells you everything you need to know about why I, and so many other people on Main Street, strongly support the Occupy Wall Street movement.

We want our elected officials to belong to us, not to wealthy campaign donors. We want economic and regulatory policies to be determined by what’s good for the country, not by those who can spend the most obscene quantities of cash to buy the politicians and the media. "

I am not usually political--but what has been going on in this country is a disgrace!!
