Occupy THIS

I haven't heard much from the Occupy Whatever crowd lately. Rumor has it they're re-grouping their energy (now that winter is over) and planning on occupying whatever shortly, with protests planned all over the country.

Some time last year someone sent me this. I never got around to posting it, which is a shame since I think it says it all.

  1. My Father said that the occupy people should "get jobs and vote." I think that pretty much sums it up.

    1. Not quite. You forgot to mention "bathe".

    2. I have not only a job but also multiple degrees (that I acquired without taking on any debt or financially crippling myself or my family) from some of the country's best universities. My husband also works full time and holds multiple debt-free degrees. We pay taxes, we attend church, we care abut our society, and we love our Constitution. We also both appreciate a good bath. :)

      I am a PROUD supporter of Occupy and a dedicated, informed voter. Your bigotry is the only thing here that stinks.

      So let's chill with the stereotypes, 'k? Whatever misguided notion you have of Occupy it's just that-- misguided. Hopefully not willfully so.

    3. Just curious, Julia. WHY do you support the Occupy folks? From everything I’ve seen and heard, they demand entitlements and free rides that are not at all in keeping with the Constitution. You’re clearly a responsible and mature adult – so what about their protests do you support?

      For the record I’m not entirely without some sympathy – see these links:

      I believe much of the legitimate complaints the OWS crowd has can be traced back to unconstitutional government interference in the free market.

  2. I have seen several of those signs and I think they are GREAT. We did not pay for our children to go to college, if they wanted to go, they had to work for it! Of course, they aren't "occupying" anything but jobs, so I guess it was the right decision. This occupy what-ever is a hoax but that's what politics and news is these days.

    1. All parents cannot be as good as you. Mine pushed me into college, and pushed me into taking out the loans. Yes I was 18 but no, I was not capable of grasping the responsibility involved. I don't side with OWS either, but I do understand their plight. If you can't get a VERY good job out of college, with 40k plus in non dischargeable student loan debt you will be a serf for the rest of your life working crap jobs.

      The reason I don't side with OWS is that we as individuals need to rely on ourselves for employment and not expect "corporations" to "give" us jobs so we can buy new cars and IPhones. The answer to dealing with a corrupt system is leaving it. I, myself, plan on becoming a new age "farmer", or at least grow enough to sustain my family when the descent comes.

  3. I wonder where this sense of entitlement, that so many seem to have, came from....

  4. Yup! It's true.... Even in the beautiful inland northwest at "select" locations you to can enroll in classes to prepare you for "getting into peoples faces" this spring! Why, we're gonna have our very own "arab spring" right here in the US of A......
    Oh I'm so looking forward to this. *insert sarcasm*

  5. Its factual and provable that the middle class is being systematically destroyed by large banking interest to make a debter economy.. She is right about working her butt off, because the debt you aquire from the cost of your average university is much more then one person could pay whilst covering there rent simply from working 30 hours a week at minimum wage.. So that is pure bullshit right there no matter how little she eats or how smart her phone is.. any simpleton could do the math to figure that out! And then she has to hope to find a job in a economy thats been in a recession going on how long now? And tell this bullshit to people like my unlce whom also didnt eat fast food or spend money on many toys the 35 years he gave to GM, and between inflation and the cost of healthcare on top of this recession he lost over half of his retirement. Maybe she is just to 'rural' to see the big picture? I agree some of these 'occupy' people and 'tea party' people have entirely to much sparetime, but blanketing all decent as pure laziness is nothing short of heresy on we the people! ;)
