Occupiers Miss the Mark

You can see it in the eyes of the “99%’s”: fear and despair. Their stories are all too common in what has been dubbed the “Lost Generation”, massive student loan debt and unemployment or underemployed. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. These kids were taught that you go to college(any degree will do) and you punch your ticket to the Middle Class. But, a stagnant economy has created a Darwinian job market that values skills and experience they don’t possess. Sadly, these kids have proven easy marks for leftist agitators and community organizers that feed on hopelessness.

Occupy Wall Street is the brainchild of Adbusters an anti-corporate outfit funded by billionaire leftist sugar-daddy and convicted insider trader George Soros. In their words “We felt there was a real rage building up in America, and we thought that we would like to create a spark..” After a month of marinating in Marx, Pol Pot and patchouli that rage is being unleashed. In the Obamavilles that have sprouted across our country one will find: calls for violent revolution(LA), anti-semitism(LA,NY), the occupier anthem “F**k the USA”(Portland), sexual assaults(Portland, Cleveland, Seattle, Oakland) and an assault on a member of our armed forces(Boston). Is this the work of a few “bad apples”? Clinton pollster Doug Schoen went to OWS and spoke to the protesters and found that 98 percent support civil disobedience and 31 percent support violence to advance their agenda. What exactly is their agenda? Here’s a sampling of their demands:

Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

Free college education.

Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now!

This anti-capitalist rhetoric has won the endorsements of the communist and nazi parties for the occupy movement, but what about the American people? Gallup finds Americans by 64 percent to 30 percent blame the government, not Wall Street for our current economic problems. These kids need to understand that cronyism, not capitalism is what is wrong with America. That class warfare calls to “eat the rich” won’t solve their problems.

They must also understand that the Pied Piper who sold them hope and delivered hopelessness has changed his tune to envy and hate which can only lead to their ruin. Only President Obama would have the audacity to demonize an industry that donated $15.8 million to his campaign in 2008 and $7.2 million so far this cycle. That money bought Goldman Sachs “too big too fail” status in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street “reform” law. Remember, this is a man that would raise taxes on 48 percent of small businesses under the guise of sticking it to “millionaires and billionaires” while his administration guaranteed billionaire campaign bundler George Kaiser(who declared zero taxable income for five years) will be repaid before taxpayers see a dime of the $527 million we sunk into Solyndra.
