Email: Study More.

I applaud you for having an opinion, yet you claim to study and have many things incorrect. Rather than educating, I will direct you to some links you can study.
I will however post a few things about myself first:
1. I am with the Occupy Movement.
2. I have long hair and look like a hippy. :)
3. Hippies became Yuppies and are the cause of this fiasco.
4. I am a business owner and employ over 30 people.
This one article, which I hope you research after reading will tell you the truth of the state of the economy.
You may find the commonalities in this link about the depression with the current state of things depressing. Pun intended.
This one is very important for you to understand, if nothing else study this next link.
Keep your mind open, research conclusions and terms in as many places as possible. You are this country's future and just by participating America should be proud of you as I'm sure your parents are.
However, stating "Get a job" when the #1 argument in Washington D.C. is the unemployment rate across the country is nearly ludicrous, If it were that easy there would be no protests. The 1st Amendment is the 1st for a reason and guarantees the right to peaceful assembly. It reads like this:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
By stating your opinion the way you did, is it any wonder you were attacked? Many would view your statements as un-american, I do not. It's not what you say it's how you say it. Calling all involved "Hippy's" and assuming they have degrees in useless subjects is childish, I have a degree in Business and another in Electrical Engineering. Most of my now unemployed friends also have degrees in things like Architecture, Physical Therapy, Computer Engineering, and Accounting, etc.
If you believe you will be a part of the 100% then you are fooling only yourself, the 1% issue is as real and scarey as living near an active volcano. However, too many take this colloquialism as a hard number. It's just a statement indicative of the disparity between the middle class and the upper class. You will learn a great deal about this disparity in the first link.
Always remember, regardless of your point of view, without opposing points of view progress is halted.
Best of luck to you, and keep on studying, we nedd more young people like you in this country.
