Ah the subtle ironies of life. The “Occupy” protesters who for a full month didn’t even know why they were protesting are now fighting to get even a small mention by the American media.
I have news for the occupy movement. Your cause was doomed from the start. First of all, your movement refused to mention President Obama out of fear of being labelled racists. This was a fatal flaw in your argument that you and your ilk deserve a free ride through life.
Obama has had three years to fix the mess we call an economy and to date, has done little to do any of the things he campaigned on. Remember “Change?” The only change I see is the change in my pocket after being bent over by Washington. Nothing has changed. In fact, government has grown exponentially in his reign as “The Anointed One.”
Second, the occupy movement had no real agenda and did not manage to put together an agenda for nearly 30 days into their protests.
When an actual agenda was produced, it was nothing more then an incredibly selfish list of demands that would be impossible to fulfill. It was also a direct attack on the American way of life.
This my incredibly selfish and stupid “occupy” friends is what caused you to lose the American public. This is the same American population that has to get out of bed every day and schlep their way through another day of work at a menial job to make ends meet and pay their own way through life.
Third was the way the occupy protesters have little or no regard for those around you. You “expect” people to understand your selfish wants and needs yet refuse flatly to admire the people that work for a living.
Blocking freeways and intersections only served to make life miserable for people like myself that were simply trying to get through another day.
The Fourth nail in the “occupy” coffin was the flotsam and jetsam that called themselves “protesters.” Your core group consisted of nothing more than pot heads, hippies, homeless people are molesters according to some news reports.
You people wanted Americans to take you serious, but that is absolutely impossible when your core proteters are unkempt and disheveled looking.
The Occupy protesters came off like a bunch of sore losers holding out a collective bag and saying “whats in it for me?”
Those are just a few thoughts on the “Occupy” movement by yours truly. The only movement America saw were the bowel movements that your protesters were taking in the bushes near your protests. JD
