Occupy: The Enemy Within

Occupy: The Enemy Within

In the summer of 1984, I stood directly on the border of North and South Korea at the Peace Village of Panmunjon. There I stood face to face with the enemy,

a soldier who stood ram rod straight and starring back at me as they often do in an attempt to intimidate. This North Korean soldier, indoctrinated into communism from birth, knew only hatred for us as it was all he had been allowed to know. If a hint of humanity did manifest itself, it would have cost him his life at the hands of his communist masters. Even though I saw only hate in his eyes, he was to be pitied. He was the enemy and he represented a horrible evil, but sadly, he had no choice.

Today, as I listened to KVOR radio give an Occupy Colorado Springs organizer extended amount of air time, I was sickened. This organizer for Occupy, like all the Occupy organizers, either was intellectually dishonest or amazingly uninformed. Complaining of corporate greed, he neglected the truth that the banking industry is one of the most heavily regulated on the planet, yet the Occupy protest don't target those in Congress who make those regulations or point at the White House where the head of GE sits on the Presidents economic council, while GE pays no US taxes on billions in profits. For some reason, this giant corporation is not greedy in the eyes of the Occupy movement. The lie perpetuates and the deception continues as Occupy stands with communists and anarchists who
