You MIGHT Be A Fleabagger....

I've been kinda busy and haven't had time to comment on the Occupy Wall Street groups, and that has been frustrating.  As far as rationality goes, these characters make the occasionally confused "Keep Government Out Of My Medicare" Tea Partyers look like Mr. Spock.

Yeah, there's some bad stuff going on, and Washington is stealing from the middle to protect the top.  So why aren't they protesting in front of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in D.C.?
Good Lord in heaven, what a crew.  Anarchists for Big Government.  Privileged Ivy Leaguers rioting for free tuition, supplied by working plumbers, retailers and electricians. An uprising against theft, but with nary a word spoken about the thieves in Washington who do the stealing.  And they have to pay Mexicans to show up to protest !!!   This is not the diversity we were promised !!!!

I mean, these children do know who Wall Street supported in the last presidential election, right?

And they do know who has given Wall Street its money's worth in bailouts and handouts, right?


For those who are interested, here's a sampling from the rolling Twitter Feed at #YouMightBeAFleabagger.  Constantly updated, of course, so hit this link.

If you use the iPhone 4 your parents gave you to send anti-corporate tweets from the park you've turned into a dump, #YouMightBeAFleabagger

And in closing, if you can watch this tragedy without laughing, you have a heart of stone.

You might be a fleabagger if you fall off the message of "Wall Street" and embrace the message of "occupy."

You might be a fleabagger if you protest against Countrywide, IndyMac, WaMu, Wachovia, and the hundreds of other banks that failed which were not based on Wall Street.

You might be a fleabagger if you protest against bank profits without knowing their stock prices are now less than their monthly checking account fees.

You might be a fleabagger if you are angry about increased bank fees but don't realize Dodd-Frank is the reason they went up.

The Occupation in Rome turned violent, and the caribinieri pulled out the water cannons and riot control gas.

The leftists are reeling from the global backlash against the world socialist movement they thought they had won two years ago. Atlas has shrugged and the looters are angry.

The dismantling of the social welfare state has begun!

You might be a fleabagger if you wear a "Ron Paul 2012" button on your Che Guevara t-shirt.

(It's funny because it's true - a certain portion of Ron Paul's fanbase consists of folks who have no love for fiscal libertarianism but flock to Paul because of his antiwar stance.)

Some of these are a bit mean spirited, but I still laughed!
