In my eyes, the American people don't sit around "occupying" something, and then expect things that are broken to be fixed. This "Occupy" movement is the 21st century definition of pouting.
"This country is !@#$ed up, I've lost what I worked for, so I'm going to stop everything I'm doing and just make loud noises and sleep on the sidewalk!"
Does that sound responsible? To me it doesn't. That sounds like a country that is failing because its own citizens are lazy. If you've lost something, or think this country is in fact failing, then do something about it!
Stop sitting there!
It is not impossible to find a job. They're out there. The unemployment rate is not as bad as it was 3 years ago, before all this complaining and protesting.
I'm 20 years young. Twenty.
I'm paying for my tuition on my own. I own a nice silver Mustang. I make my own payments on it. I pay my car, dental, and health insurance. I buy my own food. I pay my phone bill. I pay at the pump. I put 4 to 5000$ into my savings. I serve my country in the Reserve component. I work on 9.55$ an hour, PART TIME.
My demographic's unemployment rate is between 23-25%. If I can make something of myself, so can you.
Quit occupying, pouting, doing nothing, protesting, etc., and go make this country well again. I'm well on my way to doing my part.
