Occupy Wall Street...What are they so upset about?

Maybe not all or even most of them can give a coherent response to that question but that doesn't mean America doesn't have a fundamental problem in dire need of attention. Try this quote from Henry Blodget,
The problem in a nutshell is this: Inequality in this country has hit a level that has been seen only once in the nation's history, and unemployment has reached a level that has been seen only once since the Great Depression. And, at the same time, corporate profits are at a record high.

If you think that's just the rhetoric of class warfare, perhaps you might find
the charts on this link a bit harder to dismiss.

Finally, a shout out to some local people who got busy with their sign making and sloganeering and then took a walk yesterday to Greg Walden's La Grande office and then to the Wells Fargo bank. Here's a four minute clip of their shenanigans.

Thanks for posting the four minute slide show.

An interesting thing about the Occupy movement, at least as it is portrayed in the video clip, is the paucity of students. Mostly gray hairs were there.

Where were the indignant college students?

Cheers,

Kent
