Occupy Wall Street Looks Bigger on TV

I just traveled to New York City and was lucky enough to check out Occupy Wall Street. Let me be honest: it wasn’t what I was expecting. I think there were more people crowded around the protestors taking pictures and observing than the actual number of protestors themselves. When I saw Occupy Wall Street it was roughly just a small park loaded with lots of policemen. A little too many policemen, if you ask me.

I’m not trying to deflate the message of the protest or the determination these people feel. Many protestors inspire me because of the passion they have for what they are fighting for. It just reminded me to be cautious of what I see on television. Better for us to do our own research at times than to rely solely on what others are telling us.

    People do need to do a liitle research and not just beliece what has went through the media filter. Many there are protesting the health care reform bill, the federal reserve, along with the bailouts for the big banks.

    Indeed, both the political left and right are being taken to task by them. At least some there know that both political sides are ate up with money. For example:
