arrowre: Who is Occypy Wall Street?


I can't help but wonder as I read this letter if the author drives the big red truck that is around town.The one with offensive and hateful, though sometimes amusing, anti-Obama propaganda plastered across his no doubt very expensive American made car. Never the less, Mr. Rowe I find your letter both insulting and offensive. Though your article was full of all kinds of thoughts and words, most of them weren't even yours. I will agree with you that some very sad people turned what is meant to be a positive protest, consisting of people who are tired of corporate America running our country, into a violent and hateful message. As this is an opportunity for people like that to ride the coat tails of decent people trying to be heard. However, that is in no way grounds for you to say these are ALL people who "idolize evil dictators". These are people who are tired of their needs being the last to be met. These are a lot (though I realize not all) hard working American's who just want to go back to work, pay their bills, and take care of their families. How can you demonize those people? And I think you might be confused, here in America we call our leader the President, not King.

I find it very interesting that your argument is against mainstream media. You clearly don't have that big of an issue since every borrowed opinion you copy and pasted came from just that, conservative mainstream media. As I'm sure it would be easy if things were as black and white as you portray them to be. However I'm positive the millions of American's who lost everything when cooperate America gambled with and lost their hard earned money would strongly disagree with the steaming pile of lies your acceptable mainstream media has given you. There are criminal acts happening, you are right. But it isn't the small percentage of crime happening at the Occupy Wall Street movement that we should be writing letters about, it's the crimes that are being committed in our government in BOTH parties. Please stop with the hateful generalizations about liberal Americans, because contrary to your obvious band wagon ideas, we are not all pot smoking, job hating, lazy, welfare collecting,devil worshiping, tax loving people. Just as I know all conservatives aren't selfish, greedy, heartless, government hating, believers that Obama's the anti-Christ, leader of the new world order, terrorist, non American socialist. How does it go.....some of my closest friends are republicans.

All Americans no matter their financial status, need to come together and fight (and no, I don't mean physically) to see the government works for us and not for the highest bidder on Wall Street.
