The Wall Street fiasco is rather comical, in my opinion. We have taken the stance, as a nation, that if we don’t like something, let’s just protest. Let’s spend hours, days, or weeks complaining about the way things are, instead of spending that time trying to figure out a solution.
Complaining is EASY. Finding solutions are HARD. I guess that’s why protesting is so popular now-a-days.
So here’s my take…. Don’t like the bridge situation in Louisville? Let’s set up a protest on the Kennedy Bridge and not let anyone across. That will make our point!!! Thought you had to wait too long in the McDonald’s Drive-Thru? Let’s set up camp in their parking lot and disrupt everyone’s chance to eat!!! Did your neighbor’s dog crap in your yard? Have a “sit-in” at each of his entrances, so the dog can no longer get out to do his business!!! Makes about as much sense.
A lot of press has been spent covering and following the Wall Street protesters. Their stance on “un-equality” is quite interesting. They have taken a lot of news time, their personal time, and caused a lot of disruptions, trying to get their point across that they feel the poor are too poor and the rich are too rich, and that the gap between them should narrow. Seems like I’ve seen that logic before….. Remember Socialism & Communism?????
