Get out your wallet. If you are a productive citizen, you will soon have another bill to pay. Occupy Wall Street is going to be very expensive and someone will have to pay. Tax payers, brace yourselves!
The “movement” has already cost tax-payers thousands of dollars with increased security officers, cost of housing those who are arrested, clean-up, and cost associated with the health risk they are brought to the cities, BUT….
Last night I noticed signs carried by a large group which read:
I WILL NEVER PAY OFF MY STUDENT LOAN
Someone has to pay those loans. So get out your wallet, if you work or pay taxes.
Can you imagine how so many young people have nothing to do for weeks other than congregate on bridges and in parks? These people do not go home at night! Many do not control themselves and most cannot clearly explain why they are there. Who is paying for this??
Newsbusters Organization reports CNN Poppy Harlow asked an Occupy Wall Street protester:
Do you believe that you are fighting for something as important as civil rights in this country?”
“Oh far more important,” answered protester Amos Fisher, “because it has nothing to do with – it has nothing to do with any designation, class, gender, anything. It has everything to do with humanity…” Fisher added later that the protests are “much grander than simply civil rights movement.
Another occupier, along with a few nasty words, said:
In a few days you’re going to see what a molotov cocktail can do to Macy’s
There have been robberies, assaults, rapes, public obscenities and other disgusting acts occurring by people in these groups according to witnesses. Still the media wants to portray this as a noble cause. Just what the ’cause’ is seems unclear.
Rich Lamb reports that on Thursday they expect the city to be partially shut down:
And it may not be pretty.
“We are certainly anticipating tens of thousands of people protesting, aimed at significant disruptions of the lives of the people of this city,” Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson said.
I find this entire thing to be very sad. It is sad that so many people have nothing better to do with their time. It is sad that integrity seems to be a thing of the past in some segments of our society. It is sad that so many young people cannot articulate exactly why they are participating in such a movement, yet they continue to protest. It is sad that some people have been physically abused by a movement claiming to improve society. It is sad that so many people will sell out their country and their principles for money. Who knows what these people are being paid?
