The OWS crowd has shot their bolt and it fell far far far from the mark. In fact, every event and every picture taken is an indictment of their goal, socialism, and is in reality, a campaign ad for the Republicans, that is, if they have the balls to use them. Rapes, filth, drugs, sexually transmitted diseases, crimes and lawlessness, crapping and pissing in the streets, etc, what was meant to "unite" the masses in America, to get "the people" to rise up against the evil corporations and banks failed miserably and now the vermin can slink home to their proud mommies and daddies.
First of all, these idiots actually espoused that the State can guarantee every American a great job at a "livable" wage (why not $100.00/hr?) that you can have from cradle-to-grave! The problem is, is that the State itself is insecure, i.e., natural disasters like floods, famine, fires, etc, and things like wars and other ills of this world cannot and will never be regulated, no matter how much the Socialist tries! Thus they, the socialist, promises an artificial security shielded beneath a veil of lies, which ultimately results in failure. One only has to look at the abject failure of employment for employment’s sake in the former Soviet Union or in China today. Slaves working a slave job, for slave wages, while the elites shopped at GUM and enjoyed dachas outside of Moscow, in the countryside. For the State to guarantee you a job, a set wage, means that YOU turn over YOUR liberty and freedom for the absolute control of your life, your income, your living conditions, your expenses, your food intake (think Moochelle Obummer), down to the smallest detail. THAT, fellow patriots, IS SLAVERY!
"It would be possible for the state to guarantee employment at ample wages to all who are born. But if it does this, it is bound in self protection and for the sake of every purpose for which government exists, to provide that no persons shall be born without its consent." J. S. Mill. Maybe THAT is why the Leftists are so bound to abortions on demand!
Second of all, the OWS varmints attacked private enterprise. Think that to mean, competition, which is why these "everyone gets a trophy kids" whine and mewl about having to compete because to compete means you either come to the fight ARMED with qualifications and WIN or YOU DON’T, AND LOSE! Private enterprise is a journey into the unknown, a venture, a tenuous goal that may or may not work. Edison, for example tried THOUSANDS of times before he invented the light bulb and where would we be if Edison was a crybaby Socialist, tried once and failed, and said the hell with it, let the State figure it out. Private enterprise IS AMERICA and when they seek to destroy THAT, they seek to destroy the nation by converting PRIVATE enterprise into community enterprise or "it takes a village" as Hitlery Klintoon whines.
Third, these useful idiots seek to end the quest for private profits, which is the desire for doing business in the first place! NO ONE starts a business hoping for a loss, unless it is the board of Solyndra and they know that they have a fellow traveler in the White House who will route taxpayer money to them in the end. No, the desire for profits (individual reward), is the driving force not only for businesses but for the private sector employee! The more you excel, the more the company profits, the more secure your job is, the better your bonus, the more of a raise you get, etc. All business is in business for a profit and that profit benefits us all.
Next, the Useful Idiots attacked private property, whether by occupying Zucotti Park and thus denying its use by decent people or union thugs attacking the port of Oakland and destroying private property there or SEIU thugs attacking the private residence of a BofA executive. Private property is one of the basic foundations of civilization, something that one strives to obtain, pay for, and own outright. Who buys a house for the community? No one. Who buys a new car for the community? No one. Who works overtime in order to be able to buy, say a boat, in order to enjoy better fishing from and turns it over to the community to enjoy? Again, no one (in their right mind anyway). The bottom line of mankind, and this is why the OWS bums have failed miserably, is that private enterprise, profit, and property are the foundation of a strong and sound nation and the OWS idiots attacked all three. In fact, the perfect example of what the OWS nitwits wanted to have happen can be seen in Zimbabwe today, where all three of the above were abolished by Obama’s fellow traveler Mugabe.
Fifth, the Useful Idiots in the OWS bowel movement mewled that the people have the inherent right to ask for ANYTHING! The abject ignorance of such a statement is mind-numbing. They want to abolish what they owe in student loans, freely given and freely taken, because THEY decided to pursue a major, such as ethnic studies or women’s studies or classical studies, which is about as useful a degree as tits on a bull! They are heedless of the cost of these loans and that those who produce would have to pay for what they wish to have happen! In their diseased minds, if someone is driving a Lexus, they have the right to ask for it but when their property is taken, as we have seen, they raise unholy hell about it and complain to the very police officers they spit on! Who pays for all this largesse is the stumbling block of these idiots.
Next, these idiots and their masters declare that democracy rules from the bottom up, which is the credo of Socialism but nothing could be further from the truth! Democracy is mob rule or the tyranny of the few by the many, as we have seen time and again by the OWS fools as they barged their way into a Burger King, demand FREE FOOD, and when denied, proceed to tear up private property, and infringe upon the rights of others either trying to order food, enjoy their meal, or the right of a corporation to earn a profit by providing products or services by those desiring to purchase said items. Moreover, the tyranny of the mob, which they call democracy, infringed on the rights of other private citizens to enjoy Zucotti Park, for one, by infesting the place with a level of filth, that became a public health and safety hazard, again, infringing on the rights of citizens to enjoy LIFE, one of the three rights guaranteed by the Creator, i.e., Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!
In closing, the OWS nitwits and the Socialist elites in our government behind them, i.e., Obama, fail to understand that Socialism won’t work and as we have seen the adherents of it, i.e., the OWS clowns, refuse to work as well! Private enterprise and Capitalism work because those who have an interest in doing something usually do it FAR BETTER than someone who is "assigned" the job merely to fill a slot, especially since under Socialism, we are all interchangeable. Thus, the private sector does better than the public sector since the quest for a better profit ensures the marketing of a better product or service, through horror or horrors, competition! Americans do not need the government to tell them what news outlet to listen to or not to listen to, or what kind of health insurance we must have or not to have, nor is it their duty to tell us what to eat or not to eat, to smoke or not to, or how to live, as long as we are within the bounds of common sense laws! The truth, if one dispels the smoke and smashes the mirrors of Socialism is that under that failed ideology, the opportunity to accept or reject what we will, as individuals, is lost to us. To a free people, in a free society, that is unacceptable, which is why the OWS Tet Offensive of 2011 failed just like Tet 1968 did, no matter what the liberal lapdog media says.
"Where everything is done through the bureaucracy, nothing to which the bureaucracy is really adverse can be done at all." John Stuart Mill (The Left actually considers him a Socialist but nothing could be further from the truth, i.e., "On Liberty," JS Mill)
