Ten Facts I Learned From "Occupy Wall Street"
It makes perfect sense. Call yourself a Tea-Party. Voice valid
concerns of federal bankruptcy and the American media labels
your group as racist-extremist anarchists.
Disrupt commerce, denounce capitalism, and demand your
unearned fair-share of the Gross-National-Product and Time
Magazine lauds you as Person-Of-The-Year.
Ever since the “Old Media” began promoting “Occupy Wall-Street”
as a burgeoning political force, everyone from Nancy Pelosi, to
Al Gore, to former Pennsylvania Governor, Ed Rendell, have been
telling the world the misguided marionettes of OWS have some
important points that we unenlightened, would do well to heed.
You know what ……. They’re right !!! Once I decided to listen.
I mean REALLY LISTEN. I had to admit, “Occupy Wall Street”
could definitely teach me a thing or two, or ten. Here’s the
Ten Most Important “Facts” I learned from the OWS movement.
1) I’ve learned that the OWS-folks aren’t actually part of the
99%. They’re part of the envied 1% who actually have the
leisure to embark on an 3-5 month vacation, and the
chutzpah to have someone else pay for it.
2) The “occupiers” have taught me that America is on the
wrong track because it only works when populated by
responsible, moral, grown-ups.
3) The “occupiers” have convinced me that having “any job”
is probably a bad idea. When jobs are available, someone,
somewhere, could possibly be making a profit.
4) “Occupy Wall Street” has shown me that whenever any
law enforcement officer does the “right thing” ………
THEY’RE WRONG !!
5) OWS has proven that the quickest way to get on TV is to
speak out against capitalism, common sense, or almost
anything considered “traditionally American”.
6) The “unhappy campers” of he “Occupy” movement have
demonstrated beyond a reasonable doubt that it’s
possible to achieve chronological adulthood and
yet retain the world-view of an eighth-grader.
7) Before Occupy-Wall-Street, I truly had no idea that
corporate profits were far too high, but federal spending
wasn’t nearly high enough.
The OWS crowd has helped me to know that the proper
spelling of the word “ECONOMY” is actually E-C-O-N-O-(ME).
9) After “listening” to OWS I’ve come to understand that
federal entitlements are the “new” fast-track to the
10) Finally, because of OWS I now know that the President of
the United States is constitutionally required to provide
high-paying, free-benefit jobs to “HIS” citizens who might
decide to work.
For some reason the “Old Media” has great difficulty calling the
OWS mob exactly what they are …. RADICALS !!! BUMS !!!
However, there is a similar term which passes all requirements
for politically-correct, progressively-tolerant, non-hate speech
that’s just as accurate …. “Obama Voters”
