Occupy Wednesday

I’m sick of politics. I sense that you are too.

So today, I’ll let everyone else rave about Big Guy’s 2nd, 3rd, or 10th visit with America’s most ill-humored comedian (where he explained, among many other things, why it’s harder to campaign as an incumbent “You’ve got two jobs.” - in case you were worried that he’d forgotten about his first one).

And they’re all talking BO’s fundraiser at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in Manhattan where 100 lucky 1 percenters paid $40k to hear Big Guy tell them how Lady M is just like co-host BeyoncĂ© (voted People’s Magazine “Most Beautiful Woman” this year! BeyoncĂ©, not Lady M, Beyonabitch!). Their will, of course, be no mention of the coarseness of the Jay-Z’s hip-hop lyrics nor the raunchiness of B’s “music” videos – except by Prof. Jacobson, that is.

No, I don’t feel like talking about any of that.

Instead, I’d like to spend a little time on something not getting the amount of media play that it deserves. No, not the secret video of Romney made by Grandpa Carter’s progeny. And no, not the Islamists around the world torchings of all things Western either. Something more important - coverage of the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street which has nearly passed unnoticed due to lack of interest.

Butt I find it interesting…the whole concept. Here we have a grass roots mob of ne’er do wells spontaneously erupting into protest against Capitalism, Big Business and Big Banks. Interesting, because 99% of these 99 percenters have no working knowledge of what the  basic economy is let alone how it functions, no comprehension of what capitalism is, or how it works, and whose only experience with Big Banks and Big Business involves using their credit card (or Mommy’s) to buy a new iPhone.

And now, since they don’t have jobs, the bank (or Mommy) cut off their credit card, they need to get more free stuff from the government (that’s you) to supplement the lifestyle they’ve become accustomed to. They may be part of that “entitlement” group that Romney was referring too.

Well, see for yourself:

no you wake upIf only the could afford a real alarm clock: BTW, nice hammer and sickle tat.

This week’s first OWS “anniversary” looked a lot like an aging rock group’s 40th reunion tour. A bit long in the tooth and definitely worse for the wear.

And of course, there was the usual batch of young dreamers:

occupy the 60'sYoung Skyler channels her grandma’s protest days: combat boots and all. She’s repelling the cops with her good thoughts, butt still unclear on what she’s protesting; I blame her teachers.

waiting for occupy carnivale to beginThe Al Gore contingency had a bit more trouble drumming up support for their cause. I think it’s because they’re overdressed. Zelda (top right) brought her “free” Obamacare birth control device. Just in case.

It’s only the first anniversary of OWS, butt the Owies are showing signs of accelerated aging. In fact, they seem to be exhibiting a lot of Alzheimer-like symptoms. They don’t really remember how they got here, or why they’re here, butt they’re mad at everybody. Because they want more “stuff.”

The ones who do have their wits about them are perfectly clear however: they are seeking social justice by tearing down Big Businesses, Big Banks and Big Wall Street firms in order to clear the way for Big Government to give them all the free stuff they so richly deserve – just by virtue of living in the most prosperous country in the world.

Butt for now, they’re going to take a break: back to the drugs, sex and rock and roll that brought us together at OWS in the first place.

Or, in the words of Nancy Pelosi, “God bless them for their spontaneity. It’s young,

making a difference

occupy depends on the question dudePhoenix believes Money is NOT the Answer. Right. The answer is “free stuff” i.e., other people’s money.

 

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to search out, and Occupy, the cheapest poutine in Montreal.
