Dubious honor for Occupy movement
The socialistic philosophy of redistribution of wealth is the driving force behind the Occupy Wall Street movement. Instead of trying to tear down the prosperity engine of our free-enterprise system, they should be protesting the national administration's anti-business policies that stand in the way of economic expansion. President Barack Obama's blocking of the Canadian pipeline project is but one example of government interference that prohibits the creation of new jobs.To add further confusion, and add credibility to this movement by malcontents, Time magazine named the “Protester” as its Person of the Year. We have to remember that Time also picked the Ayatollah Khomeini for this same honor.
