Not class warfare, simply angry
Regarding Peter Maushardt’s letter of Oct. 14 “Class warfare at its best,” on the Wall Street Occupation, complaining about “leftist revolutionaries smoking weed, crapping in the streets and chanting babble,” and “when interviewed, don’t know why they are there.”
Sorry Peter, I disagree. I think they know why they are there. They want to know, when Wall Street ruined our economy three years ago, why wasn’t anybody held accountable?
You said: “They want a class war.”
No, they don’t want a class war Peter; they are simply angry. Angry that we bailed out the banks with taxpayer money and, instead of repaying the American people, they gave themselves huge bonuses. They are angry that 24 million people can’t find a job; that 50 million people can’t see a doctor when they are sick; that 47 million people need government help so they don’t starve; and that 15 million families owe more on their mortgage than the value of their homes.
These are real concerns for all people, even including some of the 1 percent of the wealthiest Americans. It should be your concern too Peter.
