Yesterday's post showed a more reasonable side of the OWS debate. At least from one occupier's perspective.
A little truer to the suspected ideological participation, this Kucinich supporter (a last thing he mentioned after the camera was off) might better fit the framing of what OWS is. However, each of the folks I spoke to were not unreasonable, and this particular man was a little more concerned about being careful who he talks to, probably to avoid being misrepresented. I can respect that.
This event by the way, was promoted through an email blast by the local Democrat party.
I should note, there are no edits on these, except that the third video I was 'made' by some local activists who don't care for me much. I may have to split that interview into two sections. It should be ready by tomorrow.

It was a beautiful day, so I decided to take a stroll downtown with the camcorder. OWS protest event was going on, and I decided I would see if anyone felt like talking on camera.
The next video in this series (this is one of three) has a little different perspective.

Obama was in Holland yesterday. He flew in on Air force One for a speech or two, snubbed a couple of Michigan dignitaries who were not in his party, and started working on his base for 2012. Well, at least Bill Huizenga didn't get any love from the man he helped with the debt ceiling increase:
"The freshman congressman, who did vote for the debt ceiling deal despite Tea Party criticism, said he contacted the White House about attending the event celebrating the company's advance battery manufacturing success, but an invite never came.
What? Hurt feelings?
The political season for Obama has just begun, and his propensity to use public funds to enhance his personal greatness is a phenomenon only imagined in our founder's worst nightmares. Congressman Huizenga should know better than to put any trust in the hyena of hyenas, Barack Obama. This trip was simply about Obama, not the area, its manufacturing, its workers, or any cooperation with a local Michigan government.
Obama's disregard for the expense on his behalf says so. If only based on the flight time of Colonel "Jeeves" his personal jet driver.
