The gatherings of discontented non-contributors, seeking to flaunt their personal frustrations by disrupting the lives and normal activity of the majority of citizens, bring back memories of the hippies in the sixties with nothing more to do than block traffic to disrupt society in any way possible to call attention to themselves.
The “occupier’s” numbers and actions are equivalent to one child in a very large school room who is intent on calling attention to himself by disrupting the whole classroom and then claiming discrimination when being arrested for refusing to leave the room at night and urinating (or worse) in the corner. But they do attract the news media, thereby fulfilling their primary goal! And as this attention wanes, they will likely tire of their methods or escalate to more determined vandalism.
If this group of malcontents were to actually become a positively focused movement offering intelligent proposals and employing the democratic processes given them in our Constitution, they might offer serious alternatives to present circumstances. But with their current antics they are little more than disruptive irritants requiring cleanup and repair after their passing.
The “occupy” demonstrators appear to be obsessed with anti-everything associated with modern American society, including businesses (source of jobs?), anyone in the upper income brackets, elected government officials, and of course, capitalism in general and its evil profit motives. Don’t they realize that all the Government money for the handouts they enjoy comes from successful people/businesses paying taxes? With their predilection toward disruption, the “occupiers” seem to be dissatisfied with (or completely ignorant of) the Constitutional law-making processes so carefully defined by our founding fathers to form this very unique and eminently successful American Republic.
