"Imagine a political system so radical as to promise to move more of the poorest 20% of the population into the richest 20% than remain in the poorest bracket within the decade? You don't need to imagine it. It's called the United States of America." —Thomas Sowell
The collective voice of "Occupy Wall Street" has obtained a platform in the lame stream media with endless anti-capitalistic screed, along with various laundry lists of free stuff they demand the government give people. I am not even going to bother to list them because they have played out at such an ad nauseum level, it would be a waste of time and energy in this entry, given the epic number out there in blogger land.
But the overarching thesis seems to suggest the obvious: These people advocate for a whole bunch of free stuff provided by the government. In wanting their free stuff from the government, they fail to connect the dots between how government gets its money to give them their free stuff and where that money comes from. And where does the government get its money? yes, you and me....the taxpayers...But don't waste your time arguing that point with these people...while they squat on public property being a messy, dirty, loud, inane and obnoxious nuisance, take heart in the fact that cold weather is coming and these leftist social slackers will soon, if not immediately return to the shelters from wence they came. Late note on Victory Park in Manchester...More tents than people.
