Years ago, during the Vietnam protests, the socialist intellectual was a force to be reckoned with. You had to be sharp to come up with good conservative arguments to counter their positions.
Forty years later, having mostly gotten their way, the left has gotten soft in the head, as evidenced by these "Occupiers" of Wall Street, as reported in Rebellion.
Inteviewer: "Why should I pay your college tuition?"Uh, I need a stronger case than that, kid.Obviously you don't have the smarts to get a scholarship...
Occupier: "I can say what I want!"
This dude was probably motivated by that childish retort to an insult, "It takes one to know one."
I'll have to quote Old Rebel himself on this one:
Gee, who said the Occupy "Fill in the blank" protesters were a little fuzzy about their goals? Oh, yeah, I said that.To summarize in three words: Dumb and Dumberer.
Well, this should clear things up. First, this group of Occupiers protests the banks and their influence in the central government.
But this leader of the Occupiers goes ballistic when he sees an "End the Fed" sign and rips it up. (Warning: Language.) Um, the Federal Reserve is the mother of all banks -- it's a privately owned megabank that controls the money supply. Sounds like a whole lotta unaccountable power to me.
