Other than to loaf in public and to suffocate Lower Manhattan with the stench of their body odor, what exactly do the ignoble savages of the Occupy Wall Street movement want? In a word, they want more moonbattery. For more specificity, refer to the demands listed at the Occupy Wall Street site. Examples:
Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system.
Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.
Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.
Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.
Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.
Could you imagine the economic havoc that would result if one of these kooks took charge of the government and tried to inflict this lunacy on the country? No need to: the demands above fit smoothly with Obama’s policies.
Other demands include forgiveness of all debt everywhere, outlawing all credit reporting agencies, a guaranteed living wage even for people who refuse to work, et cetera, ad nauseam.
Even the commies running the OWS site realize people will recognize insanity if it slaps them in the face hard enough:
The opponents of this movement are using the demands posted in this forum as the official lists. And some of these lists regardless of how right or wrong are extreme points of view and will only hurt our cause by making us look like extremist nut jobs. You don’t speak for everyone in this. Stop creating public demand lists, delete demands threads. Let the organizers and the law team working for them do this.
Top down — that’s the statist way. But no amount of lipstick applied by the “law team” is going to make this pig pretty. The country took the wrong road in 2008 and knows it; in 2012, we’re turning back.
