Local residents upset about the lack of jobs, home foreclosures and possible cuts to health care and social security protested outside Sen. John Kerrys office at 1550 Main Street Monday afternoon.
More than 50 people held signs and shouted jobs not cuts as cars drove by honking their horns.
I think people are fed up with the government. We need jobs, we dont want to see Medicare and Medicaid cut and we want to see the wealthiest members of our population paying more taxes, said Denise Conboy, a member of MoveOn.org, which organized the protest. She said they got the word out through Facebook, Twitter, email and word of mouth. This is open to anyone who is fed up with the way things are.
Kelley Johnson, of Hampden, said he believes protests, whether large or small, highlight the concerns of the average working American.
These event make a difference to us. We hope to inspire others to do the same thing, he said. Kelley participated in a rally in Washington last week.
Too much corporate money has found its way into both political parties. They have debts to pay and they dont involve us. We have to find a way to shine a light on our problems, he said.

These people have inspired others to do this. They need to read it and weep. http://www.teapartytribune.com/2011/10/10/a-declaration-to-restore-the-constitutional-republic/
The brain dead were at the right place, but they should have screamed, “ Yay! yay! yay! Yay! Let’s get rid of the EPA!
I think people are fed up with the government.”
She got that part right.
This is a site that has great answers to those OWS people’s signs: http://www.michellesmirror.com/2011/10/people-of-ows-like-people-of-wal-mart.html
Hah, I was thinking along those same lines!! But frankly, I’m surprised they even bother with Kerry. He agrees with them wholeheartedly on all their policy issues. I’d think they’d be protesting in front of Scott Brown’s office.
I thought they didn’t want jobs - they just want to be paid $20 hour.
I'm peein' my pants here, LOL!
That was hilarious work -- thanks for posting it.

I'm sick of free loaders..
if Medicare and Medicaid need fixing so be it...I have medicare and I also pay $250.00 a month for a supplement ins. and when needed I pay what ever I'm told...and by the way medicare is damn good to seniors...quit asking for more..
if these jokers have time to waste going to Kerry's office they have time to find a job..maybe not the job they want but a job!!!!
