Occupying Wall Street With Roseanne “Robespierre” Barr
I do say that I am in favor of the return of the guillotine and that it is for the worst of the worst of the guilty…I would first allow the guilty bankers to pay, you know, to pay back anything over $100 million of personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. And if they are unable to live on that amount then they should, you know, go to the re-education camps and if that doesn’t help, then being beheaded.
I can now say with great authority that the stupidity pipeline between the “Intellectual” left and the Occupy Wall Street Movement is in no danger of ever reaching a declining flow. Roseanne Barr is in direct contact with them and will provide them with all the anti-brain they would ever need. The American Thinker also describes her list of demands. Predictably, they are not my particular dish of zucchini casserole.
I’ll forgive all student loans, all debts. There’ll be no more money, no more money systems. Everything will be based on barter and growing and eating vegetables…She also said she doesn’t believe in marriage and the legalization of marijuana is number one among her priorities…I think we should just invade Mexico because they’ve got oil. And then we can annex them and then we don’t have people sneaking over here anymore.
Now why would the lovely and talented Rosanne Barr offer to lighten the Jamie Dimons of the world by a 50lb swollen head? Michael Moore offers us his perspicacious insights. The predictable mental low-pressure system follows below.
Moore: “They’re kleptomaniacs, is what they are. They’re out of control. I think there is some sort of sociopathic illness and they know what us to life in a kleptocracy. Where the kleptomaniacs run the show. This is going to spread. I said this last week, I said it two weeks ago when I first spoke with you. And the mainstream media was trying to pooh-pooh this, ‘oh it’s just a feud down there, don’t worry.’ Well what happened Saturday, not just here, but as you said in Boston, LA, in Chicago and elsewhere.”
So what exactly do the rich “steal” from the man who hasn’t ever even missed a between–meal? They deprive him and those like him of a delusion. Michael Moore, Roseanne Barr, Barack Obama and every other loser that truly buys into the institutional insanity known as Post-Modern Leftism wants to believe we are all equal. We may have all been created equally, but no, Mikey, we’re not equal.
The other day I had to go to a really boring meeting with about 100 other people. In that room were at least five other men I’d never survive being put in The Thunderdome with. There were another five who could buy and sell my butt five times over. Another five could beat me solidly in a round of Jeopardy six days out of seven. We are not only all unequal, but unless you flew here after the Planet Krypton blew up, you will spend your entire life surrounded by people who can whip your asterisk at something.
So how does an unrestricted loser like Barack “Underdog” Obama cope with this rationalization? How would one of life’s unmitigated downer-cows like Rosanne Barr handle the unpalatable truth? They’d handle it the way society handled it in the Kurt Vonnegut short story Harrison Bergeron
If Michael Jordan plays better ball than Michael Moore, make Michael Jordan shoot his lay-ups wearing 30Lb ankle weights. If Donald Trump shows more real estate acumen than Donald Duck, make Donald Trump own a swamp and hope he can’t turn it into Manhattan. And all of this can’t be possible without Diana Moon-Glampers from the Vonnegut story to serve as The United States Handicapper General.
Of course, the voters don’t favor establishing a United States Handicapper General. They don’t even favor ObamaCare. You can only make the voters vote for so much stupid. At some juncture they awaken from their bromide-induced stupor and stop liking the smell of the epistemological bong smoke.
Bev Perdue can fix that problem in a jiff. If the voters won’t shape up and behave; you just stop holding the elections. Peter Orszag pretty much agrees. It’s tough getting things done when people who don’t agree with you have rights and stuff.
This is just crazy talk. Sinclair Lewis assures us that It Can’t Happen Here. The title was sarcastic. Some see the novel as a critique of Louisiana Populist Huey Long. Long, like the Occupy Wall Street protestors, demanded that everyone be equal. His slogan was “every man a king, but no one wears a crown.”
Prior to his assassination in 1935, Huey Long has set up Share the Wealth Clubs in cities all over the US. His message, like that of Barack Obama, was that the rich should be taxed to provide more for everyone else. Populism has indeed returned to America and it occupies Wall Street as we speak. It is even being bankrolled by the wealthy left as a method of exerting greater political control and intimidation against an electorate that has grown weary and hostile towards their statist agenda. The question deciding the 2012 Election may well be “Are we going to let it happen here?”
