Re: Column insults democracy, Letters, Nov. 18, 2011
I disagree with you, Kathryn Ogg. I think Tom Fletcher’s article promotes democracy.
While you lean to the left, he leans to the right. While you back squatting at the taxpayers’ expense, he is speaking out for taxpayers who are fed up with the Occupy Victoria squat.
If anything, you are insulting democracy by suggesting that the paper not print anything that might offend you and your definition of intelligence. After all, democracy gives all a voice.
Also, it only took me 30 seconds to Google “unions back Occupy Wall Street,” and I got a full list of articles backing Fletcher.
There was a quote from Teamsters’ President James P Hoffa, official backing by the New York City transit worker union and the SEIU 32 BJ union, and a quote from Mike Cerbo, Colorado American Federation of Labor.
Perhaps you should do your homework before accusing someone of falsehoods.
That being said, I do agree with you about the one per cent ruling the wealth of the world. How about the squatters get off their butts and find a positive way to change it.
