Well, it looks like Occupy Cincinnati is underway. And just like in many cities across America the turnout is growing.
People from all walks of life are becoming part of this movement. But most of the local media here in Ohio are calling these people “Welfare State
Junkies” and “Just a Bunch of Kids without a Real Cause.”
But I beg to differ.
I plan on going to the Occupy Cincinnati Rally this weekend and have my voice heard. I would already be there but I work 5 to 6 days a week and 12
hours a day as a Home Health Care Specialist. (Do I sound like a “Welfare State Junkie” to you?)
I’m 36 years old. I have paid my taxes my whole working life. I have paid into Social Security. I’m afraid I won’t see a penny of it when I get
old enough to retire, because of the US Government and The Big Banks bad financial decisions.
Why should I have to pay their debits?
I am not a junkie.
I am not a kid.
I am a concerned American, I have a voice, and I have the right to use it.
Away here is some video from Cincinnati. You can check it out if you want.
I’ll get some video when I go this weekend and post it on this thread.
But I urge you, if you are a concerned American and there is a Occupy event near you, and you want your voice count, go and show your support.

It's great to see that the movement is still growing stronger and stronger!!
I do have to say that I HATE that all the critics of the "Occupy" movement have the same argument that they have "no real cause" or that they need
to have a distinct 'goal', yet none of them seem to do any reading up on the people involved. It's more or less let's go with whatever the news
or officials are saying about them but not what the actual participants are saying about it....
