Excellent article by Michael Thornton about the non-existent media attention given to the 99ers and unemployed. It is time to protest!Using the conservative BLS unemployment numbers there are 24.7 million unemployed/underemployed.
Where are the protests and media carnivals for those 24.7 million Americans?43.6 million Americans are receiving help to buy food for their
families. Are there protests in state capitals and a media focus on this
American tragedy? Not that I have seen.
This is not union bashing. Unions are a vital counterweight to
increasing corporate power and the purchasing of congress and state
houses by the connected class. This is media bashing, since it appears
that a large percentage of less fortunate Americans are being
overlooked, while an inordinate amount of time is being dedicated to
those that can stand up for themselves.
