According to the folks at “Occupy [fill in city near you],” it is 1% of the American people that are evil and ruining the country – that amounts to 3,124,000 evil people running around causing havoc. Today in New York, the “Occupy” folks are going right to the folks they view as the “source of the problem” – the “problem” being the accumulation of wealth. The millionaires and billionaires were targeted for what event organizers called a “willingness to hoard wealth at the expense of the 99%.” Making their way up 5th Ave., the protesters — relatively modest in number — chanted “we are the 99%” and “banks got bailed out, we got sold out.”
Let’s examine the heinous acts of these 3,124,000 evil people: 1) imagining ways of creating products and delivering products in entirely new ways, 2) expanding the economy by adding jobs and employing vast numbers of people, 3) intelligently investing their earnings in ways that stabilize our economy, and 4) having the temirity to EARN more money than people not creatively expanding the economy. How horrible! No wonder these protests are picking up tens of supporters leading to the fall of the these evil forces.
Much like Greece, a collapsing economic system the is being crushed under the weight of people demanding more money for less or now work, the “Occupy” forces want a “simple” system to “reallocate” wealth in a way that is not tied to silly concepts such as creativity, hard work and market share. Obama (one of the evil ones by the way), is drooling over these events because they distract the people from the real problem – horrible governance from the top leading to economic stagnation.
