The American public is finally waking up! The (Wall Street) “occupiers” are a good start. They don’t have a platform as of today, but may I suggest they look at what has happened since the year 2000 to present: 1. The housing bubble — banks and Wall Street 2. Deregulation of Wall Street 3. 4- to 5 million manufacturing jobs lost 4. U.S. corporations relocating overseas, which has created jobs for other countries and none for our people. This is why we have 25 million-plus, unemployed citizens. It’s called corporate and Wall Street “greed.” We have the best Congress and president money can buy. They talk jobs, jobs, jobs, but none of them has mentioned the real truth, that we must bring back the corporations and manufacturing jobs for our people. It’s time to take the blinders off and look around at what is going on in our own backyard. Time to take care of our own. WALT BARRON, Colfax
