I’ve reposted this, from another site. I do believe it’s worth taking a look at. Read, before you judge. Read, before you jump to conclusions. Read, and perhaps we will all be in a better place.
I’ve been reading some rather disturbing posts by people on Facebook regarding the Occupy Wall Street movement, and, I just cannot keep my mouth shut anymore. The folks down on Occupy Wall Street are fighting for a cause that the believe in. They’re not expecting hand outs, they’re expecting to do their jobs well, and get the appropriate compensation. Is that too much to ask? Really? This isn’t, nor should it be a Republican vs. Democrat issue…when you get down to it, it’s about money. And it REALLY irks me when I see teachers, law enforcement folk, government folk, or any other union person, condemning the OWS movements. Here’s a clue, they’re fighting to protect your jobs, your hard work, your paychecks. Think about that before you propagate hate speech for the OWS people.
But, the bottom line is thus – nothing is going to get accomplished until everyone can listen to each other, learn from each other, and work with one another. We’re The United States of America, we should not be fighting each other – we’re better than that.
Perhaps we SHOULD REMEMBER THIS –
“And that isn’t the purpose of government. The purpose of government is exactly the opposite. The purpose of government is to protect our liberties.” – RON PAUL
Perhaps if we all stopped trying to beat each other for a moment, we could ACTUALLY GET SOMEWHERE.
