I mean really, is MSNBC really that desperate that they have to have the likes of Al Sharpton as a commentator? Not only does he have the religious pulpit, he has the biased and sometimes racially confused pulpit of MSNBC. I am wondering when people will be ripping on MSNBC for having one point of view, like Fox News does. Regardless of the ridiculousness of that News Organization, the commentary of Sharpton and Van Jones is disturbing. Their blatant support of this supposed “unplanned” protest. How do they want the banks, and wall street to pay? How is it that the people there who are mostly unemployed or just not working are complaining and whining that they got taken advantage of? How is the victim mentality so common? Give me yours, I don’t have mine. Who said life is fair?
There has always been rich and poor, and there always will be. There will never be a system where there is equality in everything, and there shouldn’t be. What will anyone have to look forward if there is nothing to strive for? What is success if it is given to you? Where is the work ethic if there is no drive to work hard and succeed? There are many people who have lost their job, lost their house, lost their families even. But, they don’t blame the banks, they don’t blame the corporations, they pick themselves up and start again. Its the American way.
How many of the rich failed before they became successful? To take a risk and run a business is how you make money in this world. Sometimes taking the risk hurts you. Real estate, owning a house, taking out a credit card, all are risks, and the responsibility is your own. If there are any protests needed its not on Wall Street, but should be on the nations capital regarding the massive spending and misappropriation of our tax money that we should be angry about. How easily led are these people, find the scapegoat, and point them to a more convenient target, banks, the rich, or wall street. Wake up America, you are protesting the wrong people. And why aren’t they protesting the government for giving them the bailout, sometimes by force? Don’t they realize that they forced some of these banks into compliance, even those who did not need it? Taking over a private company is not American nor has it been done in history as it has been done in this administration.
