Comparing the Tea Party to Occupy Wall Street
I wasn’t planning to write more about the subjects of the Tea Parties, the housing collapse or the “Occupiers” of Wall Street, especially on behalf of our readers, who are maybe becoming a bit tired of this needless bantering, but I feel compelled to make a final statement on them.
First, it is widely known throughout the U.S. that the Tea Parties have been proven to consist of wholesome, honest American citizens who are collectively disgusted and bewildered by the goings-on in Washington, resulting in the potential destruction of our way of life in America. They have behaved peacefully, and have always cleaned up after themselves, unlike the piggish so-called “occupiers,” who defecate in our parks, and who are also becoming more violent as time goes on, including police arrests and death. I agree that they’re brainstorming as to what and why they’re there. This is all documented on video and in the print media.
Hill also blames Congress for not acting, nor passing anything for jobs. Not true. There are some 17 bills approved by Congress on behalf of jobs and health care stuck in the U.S. Senate right now, where they’re ignored. Sen. Harry Reed won’t even read many of them, and the president rejects all of them, while saying the Republicans never offer anything. What have the Democrats proposed that has worked?
It is also known that the big banks were extorted through Freddie Mac and Fannie May to approve loans to the under privileged to buy homes. I say extorted because when the customary and standard analyses of peoples’ finances were made by banks in order to approve loans (e.g. incomes, jobs, abilities to pay, integrity, etc.), these lending institutions were coerced to waive them in order to approve the mortgages. This did start with the Bush administration, but continued well into Obama’s as well. It all came back to bite them however, and the thousands of foreclosures have resulted throughout the U.S. today.
Finally, although Hill’s sarcastic remark that I may not know that Murdock owns Fox and WSJ, I also stated that I read and watch the so-called mainstream media of CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CNN and CSPAN. I just hope that the readers of my final comments herein will remember them, because I’m sure there will be more diatribe coming next.
