I really wasn’t going to pay that much attention to the protests on Wall Street because all kids misguidely get behind some big issue and protest it. I know I did on several occasions. It is part of having a big heart and wanting to change the world. The problem is that without life experiences the world is not understood enough to get how to change it. You want to change how a corporation is run, become a shareholder and make your voice heard on who joins the board and how much the c level is paid. Learn accounting so you get what is going on so you can explain the changes you want to make to the tax code so that corporations can be fiscally responsible to this country. Finally, spend time learning the history of this country so that you can logically explain why you believe what you believe and why the changes you want to make would benefit the country. Here is a hint of how not to do it. Don’t go hang out on Wall Street with your friends wearing the latest $200 jeans and using your brand new ipad. Ask your parents what they gave up for you to have the latest electronic equipment and to get a good education. Maybe that education will help you see that you are protesting against the very brands you are using on a daily basis, including UPS since you are requesting donations to be sent to their office.
Great Post from Teresa Start the Revolution Without Me
Let’s look at his picture of how they are spending their time protesting on Wall Street at Legal Insurrection
Sadly, as I think about their protests, I am reminded of when Wall Street was bombed in 1920 and the World Trade Center in 1993 and 911. I wonder if these events even cross their mind while they are protesting.
