Occupy Wall Street Is Ignorance At Its Finest

The undergrad student who does not need to work to support his/her room/board/tuition, the too-much-time-on-his/her-hand grad student, the unemployed MS or PhD apparently have jobs across the nation in a city near you: protest capitalism. I support civil protests, but come on... The latest Occupy Wall Street, etc. protests are Hypocrisy defined.

Few think it good policy to see huge bonuses paid out to investment and banking executives after helping cause the recession and afterward being bailed out by tax payers. There is no doubt there is corruption between big corporations and the government. It has been so from our founding. But to assume that this is the domain of Republicans is idiotic.

The Occupy Wall Street crowd, while claiming on paper "to welcome people from all colors, genders and beliefs to participate in [its] daily assemblies," is a 100% liberal entity. Its members want four more years of Obamaism. Nevermind that Obama's 2008 campaign was bankrolled by Wall Street and whose 2012 re-election campaign is reliant on Wall Street to an even greater extent, and whose cabinet is filled with Wall Street operatives.

The men and entities behind the protesters are the same cast of characters we have some to despise: George Soros, The Ruckus Society, the Tides Foundation and the Ford Foundation (never bought a Ford, never will).

The protesters are being lead and funded by rich socialists and communists for their personal gain, not to rectify social inequalities. Capitalism is not the issue here, rather the greed and collusion between large corporate leaders and government power brokers -- elected and appointed.
