Those who show their disdain and disgust for the Occupy Movement now spreading across America, calling its members a bunch of misguided, foolish misfits and losers, need to think more deeply and consider what is really happening. This is a movement that is long overdue, one that erupted after many millions of Americans found a vehicle by which to put a spotlight on the gross inequalities present in today's America.

We might call this protest movement the second coming of the Revolutionary War; Not a war in which colonist/patriots rose up against a foreign oppressor, as was the case when King George III ruled over America, but a war in which the people of this nation are rising up in opposition against a domestic oppressor -- that 1% off Americans who control the wealth and power of the nation.


This movement has the potential to become one of the greatest, most meaningful protest movements in the history of America. But as it gains momentum what do we hear from the mainstream media, in particular, Fox News and CNN, together with the Republican Party and its members who worship Wall Street? They ask, "What is this all about, what do these people want, why are they demonstrating, what are they protesting against, what exactly are their objectives?"

What are they protesting against? Why are they so angry? Well, the answers to those questions should be evident to anyone who has been paying close attention; this is specifically what they are protesting against:


*Corporations, especially transnational corporations, who have outsourced their jobs.


*Wall Street, that created, promoted and sold them various forms of fraudulent mortgage agreements, including the infamous subprime mortgages.

*Wall Street that then foreclosed on millions of their homes and refused to offer any kind of workable settlements.
