The Occupy Wall Street Fools #iamthe53

Fools and their money are soon parted. We are witnessing many of these fools go to Wall Street to blame Wall Street for their money leaving them unwilling or unable to recognize themselves for fools.

If you want to see how foolish these people are, consider their demands, which range from nuts to pure insanity.

One of the demands that sums it up negative taxation — the government actually paying people who do not work. It’s like a bunch of white kids from the suburbs shot themselves full of gardasil or something. Yeah, that joke is not getting old. You get what I mean.

Well, these people apparently forgot that life is not fair and are demanding the government intervene to legislate that life suddenly become fair. They are claiming to be the “99%” against the evil 1% of rich people who work on Wall Street. They are posting pictures to a website holding up their sob stories. Some are terribly tragic, but most? Boo-freakin’-hoo. Life is not, never has been, and never will be fair.

I would like to point out to these people that I work three jobs, can’t sell my house in this economy, still am paying massive student loans, and somehow or another do not blame Wall Street for my situation. In fact, I’m one of the 53% — the 53% of Americans subsidizing these people so they can go hang out on Wall Street to complain.

Get a job hippies!

There is something else worth pointing out too.

Back in 1984, Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick warned us what would happen if the San Francisco Democrats took over.

They said that saving Grenada from terror and totalitarianism was the wrong thing to do – they didn’t blame Cuba or the communists for threatening American students and murdering Grenadians – they blamed the United States instead.

But then, somehow, they always blame America first.

When our Marines, sent to Lebanon on a multinational peacekeeping mission with the consent of the United States Congress, were murdered in their sleep, the “blame America first crowd” didn’t blame the terrorists who murdered the Marines, they blamed the United States.

But then, they always blame America first.

When the Soviet Union walked out of arms control negotiations, and refused even to discuss the issues, the San Francisco Democrats didn’t blame Soviet intransigence. They blamed the United States.

But then, they always blame America first.

When Marxist dictators shoot their way to power in Central America, the San Francisco Democrats don’t blame the guerrillas and their Soviet allies, they blame United States policies of 100 years ago.

But then, they always blame America first.

The American people know better.

We are seeing in the White House and out smelling up Wall Street the San Francisco Democrats in charge. They are unrepentant and continue to largely embrace policies and political systems that have killed more people and turned more people into poverty than any other policies and political systems the world has ever seen.

And as Kirkpatrick said, “The American people know better.”

I am confident that, as we saw in the 2010 election, we are going to again see a silent majority of Americans shake their heads in disgust at these people and their leaders who blame success instead of embrace success. The silent majority will repudiate those whose American dream has become to behead the top earners instead of striving to become the top earners.

What we are seeing is anathema to the American spirit. The voices may be loud, but they are the minority and they will be repudiated.
