Some faces of the movement.
|"Listen up Wall Street! Gives us back our money!"|
(or something like that.)
Other folks were there as well.
|No, son. Corporations with greedy, heartless CEOs destroy jobs.|
However, they did not stay long. The movement carried on. Veterans, unions, students, grandmothers. People of many and varied ethnicities and cultural backgrounds. In short, America!
|A yoga break for the crowd.|
When I look at the young Republican/Libertarian with the anti-union sign above, I can’t help but wonder about the young man’s thinking. His ideals. I think of corporations like Union Carbide and Johns-Manville. Like R. J. Reynolds and Phillip-Morris. Like GM, Ford and Chrysler. Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Lehman Brothers. Now I wish I had asked the young man how many millions of people does he think have been killed by unions? How many Americans lost their homes and life savings because of unions? How many people are suffering debilitating terminal diseases because of the behavior of unions?
I wonder if any of that ever crosses his mind.
