Hey, first post.. I've been reading ATS for a while, excellent site. I've just been banned at GLP for expressing my opinion on this. Over at GLP
many of them think this is just bull#. "What are they even protesting about?" "Thats what the left does best".
It's NOT just the left, people from all political beliefs are speaking out. I used to love expressing how 'Liberal' I was.. until I realized every
party is corrupt, and the only difference is the Left is more 'nicey nice' with dealing with the agenda.
It's so much deeper than just "we want jobs". These people realize we are totally being #ed with. The 99% of the people are suffering, while the 1%
are thriving. The same 1% who bailed out the auto makers, who are losing profits, cutting jobs. The same 1% who bailed the banks out, while we keep
paying more and more.
The 99% are feeling the job losses.
The 99% are feeling inflation.
The 99% can see how unequal everything the 1% is doing.
The 99% can see police brutality right on Wall St. The same brutality they've been watching on sites like this.
How about $670+ BILLION dollars being spent on wars and military in the US, which is SIX TIMES as much as what CHINA spends. Can't we all agree and
say that is wasting money that we don't have?
We see billions being spent on new oil pipelines, instead of investing in new technologies like solar and wind, which would create a massive amounts
The 99% can see what we need to change. The 1% do not want to change.
I say hurrah to the Protesters, these are the people who will be the heroes in the eyes of the younger generations to come. Like all the respect I
give to the hippie's back in the '60s protesting Vietnam, this is a much bigger deal in the grande scheme, and these people really are making a
difference. They aren't on the internet reading about all the bull# we're all aware of, they're actually doing something about it.
