This mob of hippies' petulant infestation of Wall Street may make for great photo ops, sound bites and generate some media interest, but it will mostly generate garbage like their fore bearers always did at these protests, and garner resentment and ill-will from most of the public.
Or at least that seems to be the message I am getting from this mob. They have been raised by their irresponsible Gen-X parents to value self esteem over accomplishment, and they are demanding that the responsible people working in the corporate environs hand them over cold hard cash, simply because they are alive and breathing in the U.S. of A.
Sorry, hippies. Ain't gonna happen.
Sooner or later you all will grow up, and find out that if you want some of that money that these Wall Streeter's have, you'll have to shave, shower and cover up your tattoos, remove your earrings and get hair cuts. Additionally, you'll actually need some sort of resume that an employer might be interested in, with actual accomplishments: like holding a minimum wage job for more than a week.
I know, I know: your self esteem will suffer. Having to flip burgers and be nice to customers. Yes, I know this is too degrading to even consider.
Well, welcome to the NFL. Life is tough, and nobody owes you a living. Despite what your useless parents told you.
Get a job, you smelly stupid hippies. Nothing you do on Wall Street in the next week, or month, or year will make any difference in your life. You are not standing up for right versus wrong, for good versus evil. You just want to steal the goodies from those so-called fat cats up in those office buildings. Those people up there are the responsible ones. The ones who shower, dress neatly, keep their noses to the grindstone and respect authority. In other words, they play by the rules. And you don't.
Just get a job, take a shower and shut up.
You useless human debris.
