These images taken at recent Occupy Wall Street protests in several North American cities show, I think, the diversity of the Occupy Wall Street movement — the true not-so-silent-anymore majority. Not a tea-bag-laden tri-corner hat in sight, because these are real Americans, not self-righteous, plutocratic-ass-licking hypocrites who are trying to out-American everyone else.

But, to be fair and balanced, here is a bongo-beating hippie:

  1. Thanks, my daughter in the first picture truly cares about the country she is growing up in.

      I have no doubt about that!

      I am concerned for our young people, too. As a Gen X’er, I’ve always known that my own cohort’s future is bleak, but those who follow my generation face an even bleaker future if we don’t act now. So thank you for taking it to the streets!
