*Vent* Occupy Movement

Okay so I was shopping at the mall with my kids and we were about to go see a movie when all the sudden some protesters showed up and started blocking off all the stores and chanting. My youngest, Rylan, was confused and they scared him and he started crying!! He thought we were all going to die!! Then Seth, my oldest, got all fumed up and he started running at the protesters! Luckily I was able to get him to calm down, but all the while I was thinking, "Wow! There were young kids at that mall who were also scared, and people were trying to get their shopping done!! Those people think they are doing a good thing?? By protesting people shopping in the stores, they think they are helping the tax issue, but really, if those businesses end up with no customers, that means no money, which means innocent people end up out of a job! I'm sorry if you are with the protest but I just got so angry I had to say something!!

Yeah! And the mall we went to was in a neighboring city, and when I read the paper today, I saw that the Occupiers have moved to our city!!

Something tells me they didn't mean to scare the kids.

Amazing how people were able to protest way back in the day without all this anger towards them.

Also, it isn't just a tax issue they are protesting.

Maybe one day people will understand what a detriment corporate greed is to our country.

No I wasn't always a supporter of what they are doing, but the more I learn the more I understand.
