Forget the fact that it would seem that no one, including the organizers, has any idea what The Occupy Wall Street movement wants.
It’s all very vague.
And smacks of Socialism.
Which I’m generally in favor of, but I just can’t wrap my mind around the thinking here.
If a big campout was what they were after I would imagine there would have been better ways and better places to accomplish this.
Let’s concentrate for a moment on the logistics of this thing.
Yesterday these folks tried to occupy Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan once again.
They brought their tents and, presumably, their pee bottles.
They were denied.
I’ll bet many were somewhat relieved.
Who decides to start camping out in the Northeast in late September? It’s rainy. And cold.
It’s like deciding to invade Russia in the Winter.
Decidedly NOT a great idea. History bears this out.
Why didn’t they do this back in the Spring and Summer?
And what do they hope to accomplish?
I think that they have successfully raised awareness regarding the disparity of wealth in America.
I’ve seen no evidence that anyone has made any demands or even suggestions about how to rectify this.
What’s the plan?
At least Hitler and Napoleon had a plan.
In classic “Pinky and the Brain” fashion they wanted to take over the world.
Russia, being a large part of the world and a gateway to Asia, was necessary to their success (and, ultimately, the reason for their failures).
I’ve lived here all my life and had never heard of it.
I still don’t know exactly where it is.
I understand the number of protestors has dwindled.
Soldiers have to follow orders.
They just follow Twitter.
