Blood-sucking fleas that crawl on it and mooch off it.
Just like society.
Dogs have fleas and society has Democrats.
Or socialists or anarchists or unionists or environmentalists or whatever you want to call the dregs of humanity having free love on the sidewalks of Wall Street.
It’s been going on for three weeks now and has in recent days built to a fever pitch.
At least among the network reporters.
Who honestly seem sexually aroused by the whole thing.
Each newscast features some vapid, breathless idiot yammering into a camera about corporate greed and the unemployment rate and bank bailouts and how the common people are finally being heard.
The Arab spring comes to America.
And the coffee-klatch communists couldn’t be happier. The leftists who hate this country have convinced themselves they can bring it down. And in this and copy-cat demonstrations across big-city America, they’ve all but burned the flag.
In short, the Obama campaign has begun.
First the banks, then capitalism, then a communist paradise. A world in which unemployed 24-year-old idiots talk about how the rich have robbed them.
Somewhere in hell, Karl Marx is high-fiving everyone he sees.
So let’s shine some light on this.
First of all, there is nothing in the size of this or the message of this that is either new or unusual. This is the Democrat attempt at a tea party, the same collection of rabble that protests the war most weeks in front of the federal building. These are the folks who are sure that if you only go vegan, eliminate your carbon footprint, legalize marijuana, join a union, donate to Obama and curse Sarah Palin that everything will be alright.
These are the same folks who protest economic summits and Republican debates.
Don’t you recognize the body odor?
These are folks who are more apt to have an EBT card than a clue.
They are society’s fleas.
And while most of America laughs at them, the media lionizes them and holds them up as an enlightened and idealistic generation rising to liberate America from commerce and profit. Our stupidest people are depicted on the evening news as being our most astute.
Somehow, people who’ve never produced a damn thing in their lives are empowered to criticize and attack those who have.
It is society biting the hand that feeds it.
Because this much is certain: It is America’s banking and business sectors, operating in a free society and economy, which have made this country great and provided it with its astounding level of prosperity.
Of course, it is that level of prosperity that most disgusts these people. They seem to be fighting for a society of equally debased welfare recipients. A world in which merit is mocked and dependence is encouraged.
Neither banks nor corporations are perfect, but these imperfect tools have lifted America higher than any other nation on earth.
For most working Americans, the boss is a corporation. For most retiring Americans, it is stocks in corporations that provide the growth in a 401k. These corporations which are being cursed and condemned are the bread and butter of American prosperity.
Yes, small businesses comprise 90 percent of America’s businesses. But they employ just 20 percent of America’s workers. In the private sector, it is the corporation that creates the most jobs and employs the most people.
An attack on corporations is an attack on us all. They employ us, they enrich us, they pay taxes. And they produce products and services that are useful and desirable.
And without the capital and lending of banks, we would be subsistence farmers. It is the concentrated power of capital which has allowed for everything from the Erie Canal to the iPhone. Without banks you don’t have a job, you don’t have a house, you don’t have stores to shop in.
Without banks and corporations, you have a Third World economy and periodic famine.
Of course, with most liberal policies – if you implemented the various causes of these demonstrators – you would have a Third World economy and periodic famine.
So let’s call a spade a spade.
These demonstrations are about galvanizing the Democratic base. Poor leaders always strengthen themselves through hate. Hitler had Jews, Jim Crow had blacks, Democrats have corporations, banks and “the rich.” Different degrees, same principle – unite your followers by fomenting and harnessing their hate.
Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress have failed, to either lead the country or effectively implement their followers principles. Recognizing that without the base they have no chance of retaining power, the Democrat rabble rousers have burned the proverbial Reichstag.
Hate the banks, hate the rich, hate the Republicans.
