Occupy Wall Street

There is a group of people who have decided to 'occupy Wall Street'. They're unhappy that some people are making more money than they are, but that's about as far as it goes from a philosophical standpoint. Some are there protesting whaling, or advocating legalization of narcotics others pine for a return to the 1960's which they missed as an accident of birth timing.

I think that's about a far as it goes.

UPDATE: Commentator WoFat suggests that the woman in the front must be a government plant because she shaves under her arms. Neither WoFat nor I have ever seen a radical woman with shaved armpits. HOWEVER, if you look closely, somebody photoshopped the photo (not me) to white out the hairy pits and make the photo more appealing.

The girl with smooth armpits is no doubt a government plant.

Mob mentality, nothing more and nothing less... however it's unfortunate they don't all get on the same page. I'm going to have to google this one, I've heard about it but no time for the television anymore so I miss out on the news, well unless you're reporting it here!

WoFat do you think the govt would plant a feminist, a radical feminist at that or is she only appearing to be a radical person to infiltrate the mobs? Inquiry minds what to know. :-)

WoFat - If you look at the photo closely, it appears that the hairy armpits have been photoshopped. (not by me) Therefore, I suspect that she is a genuine protestor.

Darlin - it's the way of protest.

What is the best way to leave OWS protesters at a loss for words?

Offer them a job.

LL said...

Opus #6, I don't think that these people actually want to work. They simply feel that whatever others earn is theirs by right. As dysfunctional as that may seem, it makes sense to the entitled who grew up in a world where everything was handed to them.

I think this is hillariously stupid. There is an 'occupy' rally set in vancouver as well, and it has about as much agenda as this.

You may as well be talkng to the who's in whoville for all the action that will happen from an event like this.
