Think Right, Act Right, Be Right.

The “Other 99%” Would Do the Same Thing

with 2 comments


I’ve not really commented much on the rather silly and meaningless “Occupy” protests going on around the country because it’s really nothing more than a class warfare stunt designed to crucify those 1% of Americans that have been successful in business.  In times of economic chaos, it is inevitable that people with complain and gripe.  It happened in the 70’s and 80’s; it’s nothing new.

My beautiful bride even made a comment to me as I was writing this:  It’s just like Rome.  When the people weren’t fat, happy, and entertained, they rebelled against the government and society in general.  I think she’s right because the human condition hasn’t changed since Adam and Eve decided it would be good to eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. 

Essentially, what these protesters are saying is that the wealth is ill-gotten and it needs to be spread around.  They have bought into the Marxist lie of government-mandated fairness.

Now, as a student of human nature and the like, I have found that greed is a trait that permeates throughout the entire of human race, not just a subset of them that have money.  I’ve personally seen greed in my own life and in the lives of those around me.  None of us are rich, so I would suspect that these Occupy protests are nothing more than the “have-not”’s showing their own greed.

It reminds me of this scene from the 1989 movie Batman:

 

Hubba Hubba Hubba Money Money Money

I bet the Occupiers would love the Joker to roll in on his float and drop $20 million on the crowd.

Why aren’t the Occupy Flea-baggers going after Hollywood celebrities that are ridiculously rich, or after professional athletes/  Why is their wrath exclusively directed at those who have demonstrated the ability, cunning, timing and luck in business? 

What, do we think that these Hollywood morons get their millions because they possess some supernatural ability to act?  Or is it because of the Writers Guild that controls whether new talent can actually make it to the silver screen? 

Or what about the recent players revolt in the NFL and the current player revolt in the NBA?  What, do these players deserve $20 million a year because they can throw a stupid football around?  But they get it because of the NFL Player’s Union that beats the NFL team owners down every year for more money.

The thing is, these idiots, if provided with the same elements to make mega-millions, would do the exact same thing!  Many of these people have their own little businesses out there, selling products or trying to do something to chase that dream of capitalism. Unfortunately, their dream hasn’t cashed in.  So, they gripe and complain, out of greed, anger and frustration to anyone who will listen to their “I-didn’t-lose-they-cheated” gibberish. 

Humans are greed-infested creatures.  Not 1% of them, but 100% of them.

  1. Actually, the people who are out on those streets are coming from all different socio-economic backgrounds. Most of them are not complaining about not having enough money, and the main problem they seem to have is not with companies or the government on their own, but how they interact. This is not a liberal or conservative issue, though the majority of the participants seem to be liberal. Pay a little more attention buddy, it doesn’t seem like you know what you are talking about.

  2. I know all about these people and not only are the majority of them, if not all, are a bunch of whiny socialistic lib-crats who have finally found a wobbly platform on which to express their rhetoric, but the people behind them supporting their movement are hardcore liberals, socialists, union blowhards, and other assorted riffraff.  I drove by our Occupy protest today and there wasn’t anything there with which I can identify.  Just because I have a strong opinion against the Occupiers doesn’t mean I don’t know what they are about.
