Anyone who has been watching the news lately, and anyone with even 1/4 of a brain, has been disgusted by the riotous, weed-driven frenzy that is the Occupy Wall Street Movement.
Calling it a "Movement" is actually giving it too much credit, but if the word can be used for describing the purging of waste from one's bowels, I guess it's more apt that I thought!
Today was supposed to be the Grand Climax of the Movement, where these glorified hippies would storm Wall Street and stop hard-working bankers and stock brokers from entering their workplaces.
The end result: The lame protestors only succeeded in successfully blocking a busy street in front of the New York Stock Exchange and more than 200 of the occupiers who attended were arrested, for blocking said intersection.
The arrests got violent, the fault of the protestors who refused to leave the crowded streets, and several police officers were attacked by protest members.
On the radio this afternoon (Roe & Roper on 890 WLS if anyone is playing the home-game), the hosts brought up a good point: The protestors only succeeded in protesting against the police officers who were trying to arrest them - those police officers being over-worked, under-paid workers themselves, who only live to better our lives and keep us safe!
That right there is the crux of the problem with the Occupy Wall Street Moment: It's definitely not working! Today marked the two month anniversary (what's the present for a two month anniversary for a terrible movement... Gold? Silver? Pepper Spray?) of the start of the movement, and they have successfully accomplished NOTHING!
They have been out there, whining, complaining and making an absolute mess of things, and they have left nothing but destruction and vapidity in their wake! They have marched the proverbial "unfair" streets of America and have found themselves in a vacant lot, overgrown with weeds, with nowhere to go but to return to the overwhelming darkness that is their lives.
They're also a rude bunch of buggers. Not only do they attack policemen, but they heckle politicians too! Michele Bachmann, while giving a speech at a Veteran's Day Parade in South Carolina, was heckled by Occupy Protestors, who shouted, "You capitalize on dividing Americans, claiming people that disagree with you are unpatriotic socialists!" After local police escorted them out, Bachmann said, "Don't you just love the First Amendment?"
Later Bachmann said, about the protestors, "They haven't been told what was done for them, and that's what's a shame, and I think that as soon as they would know, if they understood the heavy price that was paid for that First Amendment right, they'd be much more respectful."
She also said that the protesters were ignorant of the heroes "on the USS Yorktown who paid a big price for them." She added, "They're ignorant and they were disrespectful, but you know someday hopefully they'll come to know the price that was applied." (Story courtesy of The Huffington Post.)
A recent survey of Occupy Wall Street members by Hector R. Cordero-Guzman, Ph.D, of the School of Public Affairs at New York's Baruch College, sheds new light on who they are: Young (64.2 percent are under 34), well educated, white (81.3 percent) and male (67 percent). Only half are employed full-time. Over 70 percent say they are independents politically, 27 percent are Democrats, 2.5 percent are Republicans. (Courtesy of ABC News)
Let's break down this survey shall we?
Young + Well Educated = Lazy Hippies? HOW does that work? If these punks are truly intelligent, they would be either working a steady job now or looking for one that fits their needs! But, instead, they're just sitting there complaining like a little boy who just lost a game of Hide and Seek.
One half are employed full-time... Then WHAT, pray tell, are they doing there in the first place!? They should be at their jobs, making money and contributing to help America, instead of sitting in a tent and complaining about what's wrong! They already found a job - where's the vicious American bias in that?
The fact that they're male sheds a little light on their motives... What better way to impress chicks than putting their faces out there for a meaningless Liberal cause?
And the 27% Democrat vs. 2.5% Republican... I do believe that speaks for itself! Those 2.5% of Republicans must me so far central that they've lost sight of true Republicanism anyways...
What this survey shows is that they're a bunch of lazy white guys, overwhelmingly Liberal, who just want to sit and complain about what America lacks, instead of its many golden ideals.
The thing is, we have a good system in America, but these Occupiers aren't willing to admit the fact that America, like every other nation, can go through startling low times, as well as glorious highs! They simply CAN'T wait for the Economy to turn upwards, which it already is. It has been reported that the Economy is slowly improving, Stocks and Figures are up and Sales are on the up-and-up! Why can't the Protestors see that...? Because, like stubborn horses, they have placed blinders on themselves to hide the truth from their wandering eyes.
Two of my favorite people in the world sum it up best:
First, Michele Bachmann: "A vocal minority called Occupy Wall Street believes that the problem we face is capitalism or free markets. It's not. The problem is government doing what both the Constitution and decent morality prohibit, that is crony capitalism."
Second, my dear friend Gabby: "What's even more frustrating for me is that my mother is one of the people the debt crisis is truly affecting. She works her ass off. Every single day. And she had to file bankruptcy and we're losing our home...but you don't see her out there 'protesting'. She goes to work because that's what responsible people do...to support their families and themselves."
Occupiers are not loathes to admit they thrive on Capitalism- What would they do without their Ipads, Smart-Phones and MAC Computers? Hmm...?
My solution to these punks: MOVE OUT OF AMERICA! Get up and LEAVE! Take your $300 IPads and Smart-Phones and GO! You don't need to stay here, because obviously you're too mighty to live by our rules and ideals, that have worked for hundreds of years...
Both of my Grandpas served this country in the Army, making sure we would keep the Freedom that has made America so great! How many of these Protestors have served their country in such a selfless, blisteringly honest way? Of course, that figure never makes it into the survey, because none of them probably have!
If they would all stop complaining and start truly using their "intelligent" minds, they would be able to find jobs and find ways to work within our system, instead of lobbying to change something that truly doesn't need to be changed!
America isn't perfect, but at least we can provide a country that would tolerate these numb-skulls for even a few months..and hopefully soon their pathetic little movement will taper out and they will go back to their bong parties and high-rise lofts...
I represent the 100% of people who should despise these miscreants- The real question is:
