12:32 pm
into the direction where leaders are meeting what is the reason for this is do you feel betrayed i really do and betrayal is the biggest facts are a thing you know we all join for own reasons well join the military for our own reasons you know one thing is that as common as we join something to do good or to help other people to be part of something bigger than ourselves and to defend our country and when we went over to iraq or afghanistan or whatever our service was he saw that it wasn't true and we were do is destroy people's lives we were doing good work in iraq or afghanistan and that's why i don't want these medals because. they represent something that is not important to me it's meaningless to me and i'm not proud of being part of a system that is has killed hundreds of thousands of iraqi civilians since we're
12:33 pm
proud of and that's that's i mean to get a an award for your injuries occupy oakland clashed. the police talking about the fact that veterans really sometimes to get injured after being injured and why do you think that's the case. there i don't think there are more of us runs getting hurt here but you know there are a lot of veterans getting hurt by the system that is you know in the sense that they come back to a broken system a system that they feel disconnected from and that's why we're having a thousands of veterans a day commit suicide why we have so many homeless veterans is that system that's. hurting veterans what do you think it is that billions of dollars are being spent on us more fair as we speak we are seeing a staggering number of homeless and jobless veterans here in the united states because there are. people are making money off these more's their you know getting
12:34 pm
money for our government to buy their toys to buy their equipment and to fund these wars and that's how they make their riches and there is always money for war but we never of money for schools or nice things here. for kreutz soldiers such as yourself to do the bidding for them abroad are sensually lying to get people to join the military about the reasons behind the wars the us is involved. for military recruiters. they at least mislead people. they may lie to you but they will mislead you not give you the whole story and that's why it's so important if you will join the military to talk to as many veterans that you as you can find and get so every point of view as you can get tickets if you already know those that are there is a. thing most veterans wouldn't recommend against somebody joining. it's
12:35 pm
you know it's it's a life changing thing and you know i would take my joining. us. because made me who i am i would not recommend anyone else to make this mystic it's going to be here in september a sense by wall street first kick started what status is the movement and now what should we be expecting next big as it should be it could always be bigger and louder. branching off into others strategies to that may not be quite as visible. creating worker owned work or managed businesses that are really going to take the money away from money born into the corporate system and i think that's going to be a real success for the future of some critics of the occupy wall street movement are trying to undermine the substance of what it's all about really by saying that they're still almost here on this unified strong signal yes what do you say to
12:36 pm
those you know anytime there's a large number of people demanding change and the system feels great and they're going to attack us in any way in every way. and we do have a message i think everybody who comes here has their own message it's very common we're getting a short on this we're working and we're getting what we really deserve we're working. and we work more than most other countries in the world and our. salaries have not gone off in years our corporations are making billions every day . and. our retirement pensions are being cut our schools are being cut and. sceptical when people are making billions of dollars one of the things the occupy wall street movement has to say is accountability for bankers and c.e.o.'s
12:37 pm
on wall street do you think that's sort of naive in a sense expecting this. after the economic crisis why still to map this out i don't really know if you are going to get the real change that we're looking for just by asking. for is change and our government may know in some small change. banks will always find a way to screw us over there always find ways to maximize their profits and their and maximize their profits without actually doing any work so take that money or save his from somebody else presidential elections in the us are just around the corner and for years after barack obama was elected people critics are now saying that basically there is no difference between the democrats and the republicans that they're both two sides of the same coin are you still expecting any kind of
12:38 pm
change to take place after the elections regardless which one of the parties wins. numbers or clearly i think. most likely we're either going. for a democrat or republican and i think both those are wrong choices they're both working for the same system that they both take money from the same people from the same banks and. you can see in their policies that they are rewarding their donors and voting for their continuance of policy is not going to change anything at all so considering both democrats and republicans essentially bring the same thing to the table what is the alternative what would be the other option do you think that it's. a good question i mean you know you could vote for third party when i mean you make voting for a third party is always a vote but i think voting for a democrat is a wasted vote i think voting for
12:39 pm
a republican is a wasted vote you're shooting yourself in the foot if you will vote for either of those on the occupy wall street movement first started the mainstream. i was trying very hard to undermine the protesters they were saying that it's a bunch of dirty hippies sad later trying to say they have no message there was constant criticism and trying to not take the movement seriously almost a year on since it started do you think how do you assess the way the mainstream media has been covering what the movement is all about i mean. i guess they've covered it more than i was expecting them to i was in this but they expect too much . and that's why we come over here and we build our own media that we need we build websites about anyone goes on we live stream these events for everybody to know and to find out what they're missing out on but it is a shame that you know your everyday american is not going to see those things your american who you know turns on the six o'clock news don't hear about these things
12:40 pm
just like they don't hear about the wars that were so and most of the americans like me don't really know what that we're really at war they are affected by these things and. you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so you think you understand it and then you glimpse something else you hear or see some other part of it and realized everything you thought you knew you don't know i'm tough our pocket is a big picture. here . forty acres and
12:41 pm
nineteen million. and decided it would be a great place to find my bell home and retire. there she is. we call it our new neighbor neighbor nine o seven. we have seventy acres here and i can't convince them that they need to drill somewhere besides two hundred feet from our house. the needs of our growing economy also means expanding our domestic production of oil and natural gas which are vital fuel for transportation electricity and manufacturing this is for problems before we do the right people and then change. your flows are not toxic and we get a lot of it there's a lot of mis understanding of what x. actually in the fluids. said you can load here unless you come out here and live in
12:42 pm
