I had the opportunity to visit Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan last Thursday. No, I didn’t see Jackson Brown play for the Occupy Wall Street protestors and on-lookers.
While the millionaire-defenders in Congress were obstructing, the New York Times reported on the state of millions of our children. “Millions of American schoolchildren are receiving free or low-cost meals for the first time as their parents, many once solidly middle class, have lost jobs or homes during the economic crisis, qualifying their families for the decades-old safety-net program. “
So yes, I’m supporting the Occupy movement for the voice it has given to the 99% who have suffered in this economy due to the corporate greed on Wall Street and the stranglehold big corporate money has on Congress. The public understands that our economic focus should be on growing small businesses on Main Street not growing the profits of multinational corporations.
