“Occupy Wall Street” continues in SLO

October 6, 2011

The increasingly popular “Occupy Wall Street” movement hit San Luis Obispo on Wednesday as about 50 protesters gathered near the intersections of Santa Rosa and Monterey streets to protest against income inequality and corporate greed.

Many of the protesters plan to meet today at 5 p.m. in front of the county courthouse with a march planned through San Luis Obispo’s Farmers’ Market at 6 p.m.

Over the past few weeks, “Occupy Wall Street” protestors have captured the nation’s attention as they continue to protest despite hundreds of arrests including eight in Santa Barbara.

    Even here in the happiest place on earth, we are faced with the power stuggle between the elites and those who actually work for a living. Unfortunately most of these folks protesting are getting a lot of press and most of it focused at those of us who hire and employ people.
    Now, if the focus is to be against those who have actually bailed out wall street and the banks, those who worldwide benefit from from the sweat off of our backs and those who control all of government then I am all for it.
    But, IMHO the very person elected in 2008 on only his word and his own handpicked cabinet have had their fingers in this pie from the get go, they have authorized trillions of dollars bailout money directed to prop up the very companies they now rally against for relection purposes and they have some serious questions to answer…
