I've been quiet about the occupy "movement" mainly because I'm not sure what the hell it is or if I even care. I'm like the rest of you, I feel bad for poor people.....in Africa. OK so there are poor people here in America and I sometimes feel like I am among the "poor" but just because you don't drive a Lexus doesn't mean you are poor and from where I sit, I think that is the definition the democrats would like us all to believe. It's OK to not live in a certain neighborhood or be able to blow money like a New Jersey housewife. I'm quite happy with my simple life hunting for bargains. I don't feel bad about it and seriously shut-up if you do. There are poor people here in the United States and society should help those in need as much as possible, but not the ones who resent rich people and puke on wealth. BTW, I know some rich people who are poor....poor in spirit. Poor doesn't always mean economically challenged. I know a few "rich" people and find that their houses have toilets just like my lowly middle class abode does. Maybe they buy Charmin and I buy Scott. My ass gets scratched and yours gets a massage after you do your business, but last I checked we all do our business so no one is worse for the wear. Great value products are fine with me. I want to make babies with Wal-Mart and am grateful for their cheap ass shiz. Sometimes we have to be content with what we have and not begrudge other people and their "good fortune" or hard work and ingenuity. Bill Gates isn't evil because he created your computer's operating system and Steve Jobs isn't in Hell because you have to pay monthly to look at porn on your iPhone. Keep in mind that demonizing wealth and corporations says more about a person than an Enron exec hooking up management with strippers during lunch hour. When you play Jesus to the masses by defining evil as corporate greed, what does that say about you, who demands that wealth?? Think on that and get back to me.
I'm not saying I know fully what the hell this whole protest shindig is remotely about. I went to the occupy wall street website and got no definition. I can only imagine that there is a high that one gets when they have a cause and justify being civilly disobedient by it. I do think there is room and an argument to be made against corporations and more specifically, banks. But I fail to hear one from this occupy outfit. Perhaps this is a call for higher taxes and more governmental programs so more people can not work and protest for a living. Maybe it's a call for more corporate regulation from the government. Memo: To: The Occupiers: the government is dumber and more corrupt than most corporations. One may make the argument that they are MORE corrupt. I don't know. I'm not the capitalism Santa. Nothing like the lollipop gill keeping tabs on the flying monkeys while the tin man gets his oil checked by Dorothy.
So with my buttocks aiming at the computer screen, I want to say ever so lovingly and oh so judgmentally.....OCCUPY THIS!
