Does anyone take 'Occupy Wall Street' Seriously? Peter Roff (usnews.com) --What do you think about it?
My thoughts: To protest, is one of our freedoms. The sub-prime mortgage mess is the government's responsibility, plain and true. Point fingers where they should be pointed. Why would anyone be against rich folks? The 'rich' provide the jobs, the economy goes down when people are not working. Do you really think it's right to take money from the rich and give it to the poor? Do you have a child with a college degree who went on to get a good paying job and still has student loans to pay? Do you think they should give some of their salary to help the poor? If they want to give to charity, it's their choice not the government's. Doesn't everybody put some money in the bank? So why are they against the banks? It's not clear what they're protesting about.
Do I have a solution? There are plenty of educated staffers in the White House to do that and a bill to restore jobs is not the way. Stop unnecessary spending is! It's common sense. Anyone who knows how to budget their money, knows that you don't spend what you don't have and if you already have too much charged on your credit card, it's time to STOP. Am I right or what?
