Next time you see the Occupy Movement claim they are the 99%, consider this latest poll from WSJ/NBC:
Do you consider yourself a supporter of the Occupy Wall Street Movement?
28% Yes, 63% No, 2% Depends, 7% Not sure
source: WSJ/NBC Poll via The Washington Examiner
When 63% of America does not support you and only 28% does, you are NOT the 99%! You are the misguided people marching against business, industry and Capitalism in general when the real source of your grievances are all created by the 1% running the government and making the rules.
If you ever want to regain any credibility with the 99%, stop harassing the 99% just trying to make it to their jobs, stop making the 99% late to job interviews, stop making the commute home a nightmare for the 99% and start marching on the 1% in Congress and at the White House.
Here are two facts that everyone who aligns themselves with the Occupy Movement should know before voting in the 2012 election.
1. While the 99-percent suffer under unprecedented economic hardship, Wall Street firms have earned more in 2.5 years under Obama than all 8 years of the Bush presidency. Think about that, more corporate earnings in Obama’s 2.5 years than Bush’s entire 8! (Over 85 billion dollars compared to 77 billion.)
Barack Obama is the king of corporate cash. He had two years of Democrat control of Congress to do something and things only got worse – much, much worse. He may talk a good game, paying a lot of lip service to reigning in the excesses of Wall Street, but Barack Obama is the all-time, undisputed king of corporate cash, both in raking it in and in letting the fat cats make it.
That’s the reality of the HOPE that most of OWS voted for and nothing is going to CHANGE if we make the same choice in 2012.
