“Sitting in your North Face jacket, checking your Twitter on your iPhone, waiting for your Occupy Buddy to bring back your Starbucks… Stick it to The Man, big guy.” – BamaDan
Who in the Occupy movement has something constructive to say? Does this person exist? Is anything uniting these people except the same old tired class warfare (and, in many cases, a near-total dearth of self-awareness, as hilariously described above)? Oh, and crime (in many cases heinous)?
Early this fall, as Occupy Wall Street got whatever legs it had, I tried not to dismiss them as just a bunch of lazy and ignorant malcontents. However, as I type in mid-November, the evidence that they are something else is sparse indeed. If someone is to say something supportable and defensible by reasonable and intelligent people, then please, let him/her speak up now. (Hint: “rich people suck” fails.)
