When I first posted my little rant video, "A Day in the Life of an Occupy Wall Street Participant," I had no idea what I was in for. Fan mail, hate mail, death threats, radio interviews, etc. Honestly, I didn't think more than 20 or 30 people would ever see the video.
But one thing that did surprise me (though it shouldn't have) was how many people were offended by my use of profanity, specifically the "F" word at the very end. But as it turns out, a lot of folks wanted to share the video on their Facebook pages and show it to their kids, so I can see why they didn't appreciate my delivery.
Anyway, the other night two people requested that I post an edited version so that they could more comfortably share the video with more people. So Friday I bleeped out the bad words and put a new one up. Click here to see it.
So if any of you felt uncomfortable about sharing this video due to the 'blue' language, here's your chance. When I first recorded it, it was really just to vent, but the more positive feedback I receive, I'm starting to actually believe it makes valid points and shows the silliness of the Occupy Wall Street movement. So do me a favor and post it to your Facebook page. I can guarantee that your friends will either love it or hate it...
And once again, HUGE thanks to everyone for all the messages of support. It's pretty heartening to know that I'm not alone out here. Witnessing the OWS delinquents can make you lose faith in our country, but after all the loving, supportive messages I've received from hard-working, responsible Americans (and Canadians!!!), I have total faith that all will be fine. We just need to keep fighting the good fight, you know?
