99% Stories

I suppose I'm still taking in the whole Occupy Wall Street movement. Is it just the Left adopting the Right's Tea Party tactics? Is that even a bad thing?

Take We Are The 99 Percent - a site that records people's personal stories in the movement. I read them, and I'm heart broken.

I admit it, part of me (the optimist, no doubt) wants to tell these people to get their acts together and take responsibility for their situation. And then part of me wonders if perhaps the deck really is stacked against these people. Maybe all the ingenuity in the world wouldn't get me out of the pickle many of them are in.

Forget taking sides, I think I'm just going to ponder for a while.
