Occupy your Mind

on 17 October 2011

Am I the only one disturbed by all these Occupy Protests?

Am I the only one who read my French and Russian history this morning?

Follow it through, people.  Follow it through to the END.  How exactly do you think these ideals are going to END?  With a guillotine?  With a Soviet system?  Did either of those turn out well for ANY of the people involved in them? 

I think not.

The more I see, the more I hear, the more frightened I become.  Someone get these people a history class.  Someone who speaks their language, because evidently I do not.  Is it fair that 1% of the population controls the bulk of the wealth, no it is not.  But who EVER said life was going to be FAIR of all things?  This is the single most asinine thing that I've seen yet, and I've seen some asinine things in my day.

Seriously, someone get them a history book.  Refresh their memories...start with September 5, 1793 and work your way up to 1917 and the October Revolution.

You're not the only one. Apparently yesterday in DC Obama supported them and said MLK would have too at the dedication of the MLK memorial. I wish I was making that up. I really do. Layne and I were talking about it over the weekend and he said "What do they really want? Have they thought about what they are asking for? DO THEY REALIZE WHAT THEY ARE ASKING FOR?" I don't think they have thought it through to the END. History books would be wonderful.

hadn't thought about that yet. To think I've been fretting over the riots in englad and wondering if that's what's next. Oh dear.
