Yours is the best comment about OWS that I've seen. Bravo!
I'm *a* fulltime caretaker.
Occupy is about the same amount socialist as you are a filmmaker..... Just barely.
Love this part...."I'm NOT in the 1 percent. But I'm not going to be in the 99 percent either."This should be seen by every Occupy movement member.
OWS is not anti-capitalist, nor is it anti-hard work. It is not about handouts or not earning a living. It is about millionaires and billionaires buying the government and eroding the middle class. You cannot chose to be "NOT" a part of the 99%. You are, by virtue of your income,the 99%. If you took everyone you know on a 1st name basis and added all their incomes together, it would still require exponential notation to describe how much MORE money the 1% crowd has than that number. There is an obscene amount of money in the world.-- No one should have to starve,but people do. America should not be in the trouble we are in, but we are. Yes,everyone should be responsible for their own livelihood. Yes, everyone should pay their taxes. However the sad truth is there have been criminal activities and tax dodging, and shady deals undertaken by the richest people among us. No one organization has had the ability to stop it. Court cases take years, they hire the best lawyers, they plea bargain, they pay a fine. NO fine will be large enough to replace the future that immoral bankers and IDIOT irresponsible,lazy PEOPLE alike have forfeited merely to obtain a quick payout,and try to escape. Perhaps the Fox "News" Network has shown you the protesters they want to show you so they light the movement in the shadow they want America to see.-- I'm surprised that you would not have done more research before making a statement. ------You are a film buff, have you seen "An Inside Job"? (Speaking of jobs....I wonder, Do you have one?-- No, a REAL job, not blogger, not artist, not filmmaker, not caretaker,((which I assume comes with a governmental subsidy of some kind, not trying to be insulting, but hey, you've fully disclosed everything else about your disease etc.-- why not tell the truth?---)) Do you, or does anyone else in your home, receive government money for whatever reason? ;disability because of old age?,Bi-polar-disease? royalty checks from the court settlement with Viacom? I dunno--- whatever---where does the money come from that goes toward putting food on your table or gas in your car? If you think about it, it doesn't make sense that you would not support a movement that is about exposing corruption and greed.-- OWS is not about getting money without WORKING for it.If you ask me, I suspect that's what bloggers do. "Get a job,sir"
3 days later...and no answer? telling. compelling. shocking, not really.
