The above picture is a cogent reminder that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. While the Occupy Wall Street movement represents the greedy in the country, there are two components of this greed. The first part consists of the people out on the street. They are greedy because they want the American dream without earning it because someone else is not paying their “fair share” to pay for them. They do not have any understanding of respect including the concept that respect, like wealth, must be earned. The soldiers in Afghanistan understand respect as well as other fundamental American principles worth fighting for: freedom, property, honor and national security.
The second part of greed is the people who are advocating and supporting this movement for their own purposes. George Soros, the labor unions, the media and elected officials at all levels. In North Carolina, our own Secretary of State, Elaine Marshall is using footage of her Day of Rebellion speech in Raleigh as a fund raiser.
I believe the plan outlined by Van Jones, Francis Fox Piven, Dr. Paul Ehrlich and Stephen Lerner is the endgame of Occupy Wall Street. This simple conclusion is based on logic: they are implementing the plan that they have previously outlined. When this part of greed is so confident and arrogant that they tell us how they will destroy the country, what options are left for Americans who still believe in our founding principles?
