The Occupy Wall Street movement continues to amaze me.
First, from the “you can’t make this up” category, see Occupy Wall Street Kitchen Staff Tired of ‘Freeloaders’?
Apparently some of the folks slaving away to cook politically correct meals for the participants of Occupy Wall Street are sick and tired of working themselves to the bone for homeless people, criminals, and other freeloaders who are eating their food. This is called being mugged by reality.
It is also pretty darn funny.
The New York Post reported that volunteer kitchen staff at Occupy Wall Street are angry about working 18-hour days to feed the protesters but are being taken advantage of by the local homeless people and criminals. And they are going on a work slow down to protest at their protest.
. . .
“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, the Post reports from one Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer.
So, these Occupiers are tired of cooking for freeloaders, eh? And they want to ration the food?
It’s all rather amusing. One wonders if these people see the irony or catch even a whiff of a “lesson,” here?
“Free” invites abuse. Abuse causes rationing.
Can I ask them why they think Obamacare will be any different? Can I ask why they think offering everything else by government for free will result in anything less than obscene abuse and ultimate rationing and ineffectiveness?
Are these Occupy people so unable to think critically that this lesson is lost upon them?
I really hope that some of them see the error of their thinking and convert to conservatism.
Next up, an adult at the OWS movement literally pimped out a 16 yr. old girl. To recap:
So, the 14-year-old girl sexually assaulted at Occupy Dallas, the 11-year-old boy who got drunk at Occupy Missoula, now the 16-year-old pimped out at Occupy New Hampshire. Anybody see a pattern here? I mean, if it was Catholic priests doing this stuff, somebody would have noticed the pattern.
The “worsening income inequality” meme would not justify the OWS demands (whatever those are), but the facts don’t even back it up:
Let’s compare the change in share of the tax burden since 1980:
