Penn State and Occupy Wall Street may seem like two completely different issues, but they both underscore something fundamentally corrupt in our society. There are rules for the 99%, and a separate set of rules for the 1%.
This is nothing new. You can look back throughout history and see that a small sliver of society has used its power and influence to get away with whatever suits it. The world has finally changed enough, and people are finally waking up to just how corrupt and sick this two-tiered system is. From Cairo to London, from New York to Los Angeles, and everywhere in-between, people are fed up.
Look at Penn State. This man used his position of authority to rape countless children, while using his position of authority to have other people look the other way or cover up for him. Using his power of authority, prestige, and money to buy off whatever he wanted. Just as the Catholic Church has been doing for who knows how long.
And look at Wall Street. People in positions of power using it to bend the rules to suit them, and to enrich themselves.
They are like parasites, feeding on the society around them and sucking it dry.
We are waking up to the bloodsuckers amongst us. And we’ve had enough.
But these allegations at Penn State are the last straw. It’s one thing to have bankers stealing your money, but to have someone target and rape young boys, and for people to LOOK THE OTHER WAY, is reprehensible. For people who bask in the glory of being a leader and a role-model (like Joe Paterno), who then try to poo-poo their involvement with half-hearted “I wish I’d done more” press releases after the fact, they are complete frauds.
We’ve been doing business with frauds, electing frauds, and admiring the achievements of frauds.
We live in a country where people are actually debating whether or not someone who WITNESSED a child being raped in the ass should have reported it to the police.
This has to all STOP NOW.
It’s time to demand accountability. It’s time to accept responsibility. For 100% of us. This means those who have done wrong MUST face justice. We have to demand no less than that.
And we need to wake up and stop supporting people and organizations that are actively sucking away the lifeforce of this country.
This movement is NOT about the have-nots being jealous of the haves. It’s not about the 99% demanding handouts from the 1%. The right-wing spin machine has it all backwards! The 99% is tired of the 1% taking handouts FROM them. We’ve had enough of footing the bill for their recklessness.
This movement is about stopping one tiny group of people from changing the rules as they see fit to further their own self-interest.
This movement is all about people, EVERYWHERE, being responsible citizens. As I’ve said before, this isn’t a left-wing or a right-wing issue. It’s pure, common sense.
