This past Wednesday, we headed back to Occupy Wall Street at Zuccotti Park to conduct additional video interviews.

We talked with Warren Brodhead, 67, a former social studies teacher from Salt Lake City.  He was in New York to visit his brother, but also to visit Occupy Wall Street locations in the Northeast.

The “2011 Fair Playing Field Act to Protect American Workers Against Age Discrimination” http://signon.org/s/HkT7QV CORPORATE GENOCIDE =BOOMERS+55+ers are 43 % of the LONG TERM UNEMPLOYED the HIGHEST RATE of any age group! Nearly 1/2 Of Oldest Unemployed Have Been Jobless For Over A Year! A 2009 Supreme Court Ruling in the case of (Robert Gross Vs FBL, Farm Bureau Life) the 83rd Largest Company in the world changed the age discrimination laws as we knew them. Adding insult to injury; CLARENCE THOMAS WROTE a new law that nullified & ended the age discrimination portion of the Title VII ADEA of 1967 Act that protected women, ethnicity, age discrimination, religion & disabilities in civil rights law. Age discrimination was first, what will be next?? These are the results of the Clarence Thomas law http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/02/long-term-unemployment_n_1071851.html?ref=business

I was a substitute teacher for three years, a mid-life career change that due to many circumstances did NOT pay off for me. I was exposed, though. to K-12 educational systems since a substitute teacher teaches at ALL grade levels and class-types. I really enjoyed the 11th and 12th graders and especially in the social studies arena that was my specialty I had obtained my two teaching credentials in. Sadly, I left the educational field behind since there was more laying-off than hiring and most openings desired a coach for sports more than someone knowledgeable and excited about the subject. There was also, as the the interviewed teacher mentioned... well, I declare that the USA educational systems, ascertained by first-hand experience and MUCH reading about the matter, is mostly a method of disseminating propaganda... of brainwashing USA youth. Notice how so many elites and others send THEIR youth to certain academies etc. so THEIR youth are not indoctrinated as the lowly commoners... We, the People, are. Instead, the "proper class kids" are trained to rise up to replace their sires atop the pyramid-shaped socio-economic hierarchy. I AM writing about an incredibly complex topic but encourage others to at least a few articles about the VAST forces arrayed against We, the People and that preserves the status quo so beneficial and desired by the relatively few atop that hierarchy's apex. "There's class warfare, all right, Mr. (Warren) Buffett said, but it's my class, the rich class, that's making war, and we're winning." "There has been class warfare going on," Buffett, 81, said in a Sept. 30 interview with Charlie Rose on PBS. It's just that my class is winning. And my class isn't just winning, I mean we're killing them."

Really enjoyed the comments of Warren Brodhead and would have loved to have had him for a social studies teacher when I was growing up in the 1970's in Salt Lake City, UT. Perhaps if I had I wouldn 't have been so worried about success thereby falling off the student loan cliff when I went back to law school as an older adult student and racked up massive student loan debt that has not paid off, or been paid off!
