Yeah, this one is going to ruffle some feathers. Hey, what do I care? This blog is an arena for me to voice my opinion, especially if it differs from those of total idiots. So, here we go.
I tried to talk to one of these people the other day on Facebook, and got un-friended for my efforts. All I asked was for them to explain why they were part of this movement. Not a single one of them in the thread could provide any answer. I’ve known this guy for something like seventeen years, too.
I asked what their education levels were and they all skirted the question, so I asked again. Finally, they said their education levels did not matter. Oh? I saw a recent statistic that only 4-5% of college graduates are unemployed. Maybe these guys should occupy a classroom. By the way, “it doesn’t matter” means that their education level is zero. I have a decoder ring.
I think some of them are angry at corporations. They can’t mean the same corporations that provide their vehicles, their computers, their game systems, their groceries, and their lifestyles, right? That wouldn’t make any sense. If they are against corporations making oodles of money, they should stop shopping at Wal-Mart and pay double for stuff at the Mom and Pop franchises. My bet is that they don’t. Oh, and no more fast food for them, either. Damn corporations. Time to get an old Marlin rifle and hunt for dinner, you ass clowns.
Some of them think that it’s unfair that poor people exist. What? I mean, yeah, it sucks, but setting up a tent downtown with a protest sign isn’t changing a thing. Trust me on that one. Donate to charity, buy a poor family a really nice Christmas gift, help a homeless guy at a gas station; do anything but join a bunch of pot smokers who wish their generation had its own hippie movement. Anything at all.
I could go on and on about these Occupy morons, but I won’t. I have money to make. At my job. Once this stupid-ass bandwagon trend passes, there will still be greedy corporations, poor people, and crooked politicians. If you want to incite change, go through the proper channels.
