Occupiers: Are You to Blame?

Dear Occupiers,

You’ve been concerned and have complained about high student loan costs which you’re not sure you can pay back because you don’t have the jobs you think you deserve.

Well. I have a question: How did you VOTE in the last few elections? Did you vote for people who put JOB CREATION, BUSINESS etc at the top of their list? Did you vote for higher student loan charges? Are you sure?

I have just come up with a back of the envelope list of things which have occurred in Portland, Multnomah County, the State of Oregon and the United States of America through out the last few years that have killed job creation. I’m not saying nice things didn’t happen too, but just that the net effect of these decisions has been job LOSS–even before the recession.

Think back. How did you vote?

Did you: 

ELECT PEOPLE WHO HAVE KILLED BUSINESS IN PORTLAND? IN THE LAST DECADE NEARLY 30,000 JOBS HAVE LEFT PORTLAND WHILE SURROUNDING AREAS HAVE SEEN JOB GROWTH.

 Did you:

ELECT LOCAL OFFICIALS WHO HAVE SIPHONED OFF MONEY FOR BIOSWALES WHILE OVERSEEING HUNDREDS OF  MILLIONS IN UNFUNDED LIABILITIES FOR PENSIONS–WHICH ARE COMING DUE?

 Did you:

ELECT LOCAL OFFICIALS, WHO IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT STOLE PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE (CLEAN) INDUSTRY BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT WANTED IT FOR SOME UNKNOWN PROJECT IN THE FUTURE?

 Did you:


ELECT LOCAL OFFICIALS WHO HAVE IMPOSED TAXES SO HIGH THAT ENTIRE SWATHS OF BUSINESS HAVE MOVED TO A DIFFERENT COUNTY?

ELECT PEOPLE WHO CHEER-LED HIGHER TAXES FOR BUSINESS AND INDIVIDUALS DURING A RECESSION WHICH HAS SET THEM BACK FROM EXPANDING THEIR BUSINESS AND CREATING NEW JOBS?

 Did you:

ELECT PEOPLE WHO HAVE PLACED STREET CARS ON ROADS WHILE NEGLECTING THE CONDITION OF ROADS? THE ROADS ARE USED TO CONVEY FREIGHT BACK AND FORTH FOR GOODS AND SERVICES WHICH CONTINUE THE FREE FLOW OF COMMERCE AND THEREFORE JOBS.

Did you: 

 
ELECT PEOPLE WHO THINK IT’S NOTHING TO ISSUE A $29K BILL TO A GUY WHO JUST WANTS TO CUT HAIR OUT OF HIS HOUSE? THAT BILL WAS JUST FOR STARTERS. HE WOULD HAVE HIRED MORE STYLISTS.

Did you:

ELECT PEOPLE WHO HAVE OVERSEEN THE EXPANSION OF LIGHT RAIL–A HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS PER MILE–AND NOW ARE CHARGING JOB CREATORS DOUBLE–TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO DO BUSINESS KILLING 68 BUSINESSES AND DOZENS OF JOBS IN THE PROCESS?

 Did you:

ELECT PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT EASIER FOR FOOD CART OWNERS TO OPEN A STAND BUT HARDER FOR RESTAURANTEURS TO OPEN A BRICKAND MORTAR STORE–AND HIRE PEOPLE?

ELECT PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN GIVING OUT CRONY CAPITALISM TAX DOLLARS TO ‘DESIRED’ BUSINESSES WHICH ARE NOW BEGINNING TO FAIL? SOLYNDRA, WIND TURBINE MANUFACTURERS AND THE LIKE ARE DIMINISHING WITHOUT GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES. WHERE ARE THE JOBS? HOW MUCH DID YOU HAVE TO SPEND FOR EACH OF THE JOBS THAT WERE “CREATED?”
ELECT PEOPLE WHO THINK THEIR SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT FEES SHOULD BE USED TO PICK WINNERS AND LOSERS IN JOB MARKET?

ELECT PEOPLE AT MULTNOMAH COUNTY WHO HAVE PLACED A BUSINESS TAX ON PEOPLE CAPPING THE AMOUNT OF MONEY PEOPLE CAN MAKE OR FACE A PENALTY? THIS DRIVES BIGGER COMPANIES AWAY.

ELECT PEOPLE WHO HAVE USED OUR TAX MONEY TO FIND JOBS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE CHEATED, LIED AND SNUCK INTO THIS COUNTRY TO TAKE THAT JOB?

ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO THINKS THE UNITED STATES IS A BAD PLACE AND THEREFORE HAS APOLIGIZED FOR ITS SUCCESS AND HAS NOW PLACED BARRIERS SO STYMIE OUR FUTURE SUCCESS?


ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO HAS TAKEN OVER COMPANIES IN ORDER TO GIVE THEM TO THE NON COMPETITIVE UNIONS WHO BANKRUPTED THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE?

ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO …WHEN HE TOOK OVER THOSE COMPANIES… CHEATED THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE FROM WHAT WAS DUE THEM UNDER CONTRACT LAW?

ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO HAS INFLATED THE CURRENCY SO WHAT LITTLE MONEY YOU HAVE IS WORTH LESS?

ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO HAS REFUSED TO DRILL FOR OIL, SELL LEASES, ETC AT A PACE THAT WILL HELP THE UNITED STATES BECOME LESS DEPENDENT ON FOREIGN FUEL?

Did you:

ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO HAS INCREASED THE PRICES OF FOOD, GAS, HOUSING?

ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO HAS SCARED BUSINESS SO MUCH MUCH WITH HIS BULLYING TACTICS THAT THEY’RE AFRAID TO EXPAND IN THIS COUNTRY–AND THEREFORE PROVIDE JOBS?

Did you:

ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO HAS NATIONALIZED THE STUDENT LOAN BUSINESS THUS CREATING A BUBBLE IN THE FUTURE AND INCREASING THE PRICE OF COLLEGE?


ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO BAILED OUT WALL STREET WHILE TAKING A RECORD AMOUNT OF MONEY FROM THEM?

ELECT A PRESIDENT WHO HAS DRIVEN UP HEALTH CARE COSTS DUE TO GOVERNMENT DISTORTIONS AND INTERFERING WITH THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DOCTORS AND PATIENTS?  
 
 
 
Was it your decisions that worsened our economic situation?  Did you vote for politicians who are largely responsible for spending billions on welfare because they think you’re too weak to stand on your own? They’d rather loot the future than pay for the present. Their decisions resulted in the housing depression which caused a tsunami like wave over the US economy. 
 
Were they your choices that killed the very jobs you now complain about not having? Were they your choices which resulted in the reason you can’t afford a house and rents are too darned high? 
 
Were they your choices that have left you with bigger government and less freedom? Less opportunity? Less economic growth? Less–gasp–wealth? 
 
Perhaps a better name for your camps would be:

Moore Won’t Answer About His $50 Million

Director Michael Moore [Occupotamus] refuses to answer questions regarding his own 50 Million dollar net worth at Occupy PDX. At the end the videographer assaulted (specifically pushed and shoved) by participants in OccupyPDX. So much for free speech.
