If there was any doubt in your mind about the level of education, or lack thereof, here in America; cast your eyes on some of the demands being put forth by those intent on disrupting Wall Street as reported by Kerry Picket of the Washington Times. File this under, Gobbledygook!
Star Trek fans will appreciate “demand #3: “Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.” Maybe those in the twenty fourth century don’t use money; but here in reality folks who work expect to have more than those who don’t or as the Pilgrims used to say, “You don’t work, you don’t eat”.
I suppose that explains “demand #11: “Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the "Books." World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the "Books." And I don't mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.”
We don’t need no stinkin’ banks. Money is the root of all evil; do away with money! From now on a room at the YMCA and a room at the Four Seasons will be open for anyone on a first come first serve basis at no charge; and we’re supposed to take these demands seriously?
They missed a few demands, other serious issues plaguing the nation; demand #23: Pictures of hamburgers at Burger King, McDonalds or other similar establishments must be realistic. No more bright red tomato slices carefully placed on top of a perfectly broiled hamburger patty when we all know that will never happen. No more bright green leaves of lettuce since most of the time it’s a pale gray or white limp excuse for what was promised. We’re mad as hell and we won’t take it anymore!
Demand #47: Visits from the Tooth Fairy will be paid in one ounce pure Swiss Gold bullion as one child’s tooth is to be valued equally among all races, ethnic and religious groups. Trips to the dentist and doctor should be free!
Parents who’ve paid countless dollars to have their children gain an education must now face reality; you could have spent that money on a trip to Vegas, pulled a few handles and lost all that money at the crap tables. Your children would still be blithering idiots, protesting a system along side the likes of Frances Fox Pixen. Heaven help us, these young people may be the leaders of tomorrow.
