According to reports, Occupy Wall Street is marching to the homes of corporate wealth giants. Rupert Murdoch, CEO of NewsCorp and FOX news is on the list of homes the protesters plan to visit. Rupert Murdoch has openly admitted that he manipulates his news media to persuade public opinion as he sees fit.
Also targeted are “the homes of businessman David Koch, hedge fund manager John Paulson, real estate developer Howard Milstein, and finally J.P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon.” http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1011/65599.html
The protesters are targeting immoral, unethical behaviors that basically stem from selfish corporate greed. In addition these Americans are sending a strong message to politicians to rein in Wall Street giants that are allowed to control much of the USA’s economy, while forcing middle class Americans to become enslaved to debt.
The 99% are tired of just scrapping by, living pay check to paycheck, while those living in luxury enjoy special tax breaks, that only the wealthy are privileged to receive. The protesters feel that America will fail if this unfair practice is allowed to continue.
The wealthy and mostly Republican politicians fight back by stating the middle class should stop spending money frivolously. For example, Newt Gingrich stated on Meet The Press (a few months back) that a middle class family of four with a median annual income of $50,000 to $60,000 would have more money if they would stop buying vacation homes. I don’t know of any family in that income category who can even think about owning a vacation home.
All this points to a glaring fact, Republicans are completely out of touch with reality. They prefer to protect the elite such as, Rupert Murdoch, David Koch, John Paulson, Howard Milstein and Jamie Dimon, while turning their backs on the majority of Americans that are enslaved to debt.
