I’ll get right to the point…protests like Occupy Wall Street are a complete joke and the perfect example of why “They are the 99%” and will continue to lose at life. I believe in total financial self-reliance. This “entitlement” mentality creates weak and financially needy people and is quite possibly the primary reason for the disparity.
If these lazy individuals (Sorry but that’s what they are) spent half the time they’re wasting on these protests creating businesses the world would be a better place and they probably wouldn’t be crying about capitalism but instead building a house in Aspen.
Jokers like this are precisely the type of people I couldn’t stand in public education and one of the primary reasons I left my teaching career to pursue business.
In education everyone gets paid the same salary despite a clear difference in teaching abilities and work ethic. Unions protect the weak teachers and as a result students suffer. The public education system is almost the perfect example of the “entitlement” mentality.
For anyone who has been living under a rock, Occupy Wall Street is a worldwide movement of protests focused on social and economic inequality, high unemployment, greed, as well as corruption, and the undue influence of corporations—particularly of the financial services sector—on government. The protesters’ slogan We are the 99% refers to the growing difference in wealth in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population.
So here is my advice for you lost and confused characters camping out in the cold protesting something you probably don’t even understand. Pack up your tent and go home. Cream will always rise to the top, sharks will always eat smaller fish and capitalism will always empower those willing to take risks. Spend your time trying to create a businesses like Google, Facebook or Amazon and help the world by creating jobs.
I think Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki sums it up best… “The poor and the middle class work for money.” “The rich have money work for them.” This is not rocket science people…if life hands you lemons make Gatorade and get rich. Otherwise quit complaining and move to a country that supports socialism.
There, I called your bluff…how motivated are you?
