What The 'Occupy' Protesters Are Really All About

A lot of speculation has been put forth as to what the Occupy Movement is really wanting. What is their end goal? What would cause them to put the signs away and go home to their parent's basements and relax?
Well I know the answer. The answer is... Nothing. They will not leave for any reason. You could implement full on communism tomorrow and they would be out there the next day. And that's because even communism has it's own inequality except this time the upperhand goes to people who have the power, the money, and on top of that they control the food, the weapons, and the right to kill you for whatever reason... for the common good of course!

These kids are ungrateful for what they have, and envious of what they see other people having that they could.. no, SHOULD have for themselves. It simply isn't fair that some should have more than others regardless if they worked their tail end off for it or not. According to them no one who is rich has ever worked their tail end off. They see every dollar earned over their idea of what is acceptable to have been stolen, cheated, tricked, and grabbed out of the hands of unsuspecting people.
You see they went to college and they believe that the act of sitting through class and pulling in average grades entitles them to a job. However, a combination of the fact that the majority of college professors are liberals, and the fact that college in general is a scam in the first place to take your money and teach you literally nothing has left our graduating students even dumber than when they entered college. Contrast that with the silliest public schooling in the world that they grew up with.. and now you basically just have a generation of bums that wears Hollister t-shirts, have every Apple gadget, drink Starbucks, and have their hands out waiting for what is "rightfully theirs".

We conservatives believe that the only Birthright is the very first breath that you are given. Everything else, you must earn and work for. It's that simple.
So we are grateful for...
* A roof over our head
* A meal, whether it be baloney or porterhouse steaks
* Transportation
* The gift of being able to walk, talk, feel, smell, breathe, and simply exist.
* Friends and family
If you have more than me... Good for you!!! That means I too have the ability to achieve more if I have the will. And if I don't have the will.. then no worries.. I will keep my eyes on my own plate and be grateful for what I have, whether it be little, or plenty. Your plate is your business and to be envious of what you have does little to effect my own situation.. So we put our blinders on, mind our own affairs and thank the Lord Most High for what he has blessed us with.

But what are they grateful for?
I am not sure. All they know is they see that some have more than they do.. and "that's not fair" and so they make signs and generally stink up the streets.. If there is corruption in a business they don't seem to target the corruption.. They target the entire system. They burn down the house to punish the one of the flowers in the vase. All the while they forget that that man is corrupt in every sector of life.. I mean look at them.. they have violence, rapes, theft, and all kinds of criminal activity happening within their own ranks.

So what are the Occupy protesters protesting?
What you are seeing is the equivalent of when a 2 year old throws himself on the floor in the mall because his mom or dad won't buy him a toy. They are doing this in public, hoping that you will see them as freedom fighters. Who ever said that we would be free when we all owned the same amount. Does that seem like freedom to you? That seems like government enforced mediocrity... which is exactly what they are hoping for. Destroy the American dream... Destroy greatness.. Destroy achievement.. Destroy success.. and you will have what these leeches seem to think they want.

Three words: Learn to swim.

UPDATE: Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, 1 Thessalonians 4:11 (NIV)

What about...
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, 1 Thessalonians 4:11 (NIV)

and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, (ESV version).

You are getting minding your own business confused with Love your neighbor as yourself.. Meaning.. do not be envious of your neighbor.. however putting your neighbor or even your ENEMY before yourself you will meet their needs so that Christ might be shown through you.

If they need something.. give without ceasing.
If they have something.. Do not covet.

Well said!! put your blinders on threw me. I am neither dem or repub. In fact I hate politics. But, when I read this article and i saw wear our blinders. The thing that popped in my head was the story of the good samaritan.I see my brother needs help, but I am going to put my blinders on. So I read the article out of context which was my error.
