Rule Of Law

Oscar Ameringer didn’t just talk about manure, he also said: “Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich by promising to protect each from the other.”

I think that there is general agreement that ‘the rich’ are being protected while ‘the poor’ are being cheated. That is at the heart of Occupy Wall Street, and they make that quite plain in their Declaration of the Occupation of New York City. It follows the form of the Declaration of Independence, and like that document, it is a list of wrongs, crimes, against the people of the United States.

People, like the corporate media hacks, are ignoring the clear message – OWS wants the rule of law, they want the criminals punished, not bailed out. They are fed up with being punished for the crimes of the ‘1%’. They have waited patiently for almost 3 years for things to get better, and they haven’t. The ‘1%’ have been making money hand over fist, but the ‘99%’ keep slipping backwards.
