Former Mayor Tom Leppert to Occupy Movement: Get a Job, You Damned Hippies
|From Tom Leppert's new online petition|
This is what the former Washington Mutual board member wrote on Facebook Friday:
The Occupy Wall Street crowd wrongly thinks the government should be redistributing wealth and giving handouts at the expense of hardworking American taxpayers. They don't seem to understand the fact that only the private sector can create jobs and get us out of this recession. Enough is enough. Sign my petition by going to http://endoccupy.com/ and tell President Obama to denounce Occupy's calls for class warfare and a radical expansion of government.Contrast that to Mayor Mike Rawlings's thoughts on the subject, also Facebooked last week: "I believe individuals should be able to express their views within the framework of the law."
