Just what is it that you want to change? Do you want more money? Do you want a better job? Do you want a bigger apartment? I don't understand what this movement wants.
When I have a problem, I first find out what that problem is, after which I look for honest solutions to the problems and present both the problems and the possible solutions at the same time.
Just trying to understand why we are only villianising Wall Street?
You can't say that Soros, Gates, Perot, Pickens NBA/MLB/NFL/NHL players, Actors/Actresses, or banks make too much money without stating the problem with making that money and then also providing possible solutions.
I mean it's great that we have people sticking up for us like Moore and Huffington, but don't they make too much also? Aren't they about how much they can profit off of their articles and movies?
What about the politicians that made it easier for all the people making minimum amounts of money to purchase housing? They certainly helped lead up to this problem.
What about the media that made it look like you could get rich quick simply by purchasing a home that needed a little bit of fix up and turn around in a matter of weeks and make a profit of $100K? That certainly made housing explode.
These are the things that hurt America. The "I want it new and I want it now" mentality that we have grown accustomed to.
Why is it that someone in sports is more valuable than the nurse that heals you or the teacher that helps you learn to read? Because that is what WE have said.
Why is the Actor/Actress more valuable than the nurse or teacher? Because that is what WE have said.
If you don't like what the banks are doing STOP doing business with them. I love my credit union - OWNED BY THE PEOPLE not by someone overseas. If you don't like how much CEO's are being paid STOP doing business with them. If you don't like how your politicians are working for you TELL THEM WITH YOUR VOTE!
It is time to stop being polarized by the Dems or Repubs. They both have valid points (NOT ALL) but there is middle ground that can be found. You can't have a great country again without the ability to compromise and that, my friends, is what this country has forgotten to do. There is no more compromising from either side of the aisle. It has come down to "my way or the highway."
Boehner, Pelosi, Reid and McConnel get off your butts and find the common points that you have with each other and get our country back to the greatness it once was.
There is room here for all.
