To write lately. Plenty of thoughts, good and mostly bad but again just not feeling it. However, I am going to take a moment to reflect on this whole Occupy Movement. In essence I get it and agree. The whole system is clearly flipped on its’ head and right now the top %1 and then maybe a 15% middle and then 84% who are fucked. I do feel like the citizens of this country are owed a certain amount of a social safety net to prevent them from crashing out in full. I do believe that the top 1% or so should pay more.
However, I do not think it is the top 1% or even top 5% saying NO, we will not pay more. I think they are saying we will pay more but show us why and what it will do. I think the folks that are saying NO are the supporting cast of these 1% such as lawyers, politicians, financial managers and others who merely live a parasitic life off of them.
I also think the whole Occupy Movement is a little crazy for a few things –
- Way, way to broad of a message. Once you let PETA in I am checked out. You want to have a movement to discuss our system, that is fine but do not include Henrietta the pig as well in it.
- Net net. What is the net goal you want to get? I have not heard that once. Not from anyone at anytime.
