The poster on the left, the Communist Party; the poster on the right, that of Occupy Wall Street.

So, what do the Occupy Wall Street bunch want?  The destruction of the rich, which, in case you haven’t figured it out, is the destruction of Democracy, of our Republic.

Teachers, unions, government employees, the disenchanted, all gather together to camp in a park in the financial district, and as said by one of them, “…we are creating a microcosm of what democracy really looks like.”

Well, first, we don’t live in a “democracy,” we are a republic.  And by democracy he actually means communism, where everyone is supposed to be equal.  And I say “supposed to be” as we all know that this concept of government has never worked, has been a dismal failure, for we are not equal.  Even in a communist society, inequalities are obvious as those who are the most ruthless rise to the top, not those with the greatest talent or best work ethic, or those willing to take a reasonable business risk.  In this great republic of ours we have equal opportunity, at least so much as we can considering we don’t come from equal backgrounds…but all things being equal, so’s the opportunity. Our form of government is certainly not perfect, but the most perfect ever devised.

Those who chose to join a union, to become a teacher in a public facility, to go to work for the government, I suspect they did and do so out of desire for stability, for a fair wage, a fair retirement, a check at the end of each and every month, and I fear without the worry of having to outshine those they work beside.  So why now are they trying to destroy those who choose to take a risk, to move out from under the umbrella, the protection, of that monthly check, that retirement, that lack of competition?

Have the boys on Wall Street done lots of things I don’t admire, in fact that I detest?  You bet they have.  However, the Occupy Wall Street bunch are aiming their Anarchy cannons at the wrong target.  Have the rich avoided paying taxes?… you bet they have.  However the top 1% of earners in the U.S.A. pay 38% of all income taxes collected by the I.R.S.  The top 5% pay more than the bottom 95%.  And the half at the bottom pay none at all.  And the opportunity to avoid taxes is provided for by the tax code, developed by the government.  And all those picketing on Wall Street take advantage of what deductions they can, presuming they pay any tax at all; mortgage interest, dependent deductions, etc., etc.  Duh….

One of the signs I saw carried by Occupy Wall Street marchers was “Robbing from the middle class to pay the rich.”  That’s true in a way, because they can’t rob from the bottom 50% because they pay no tax to rob.

Why are the cannons aimed at the wrong target?  Tax avoiders can’t avoid taxes without taking advantage of the tax code, and who makes those codes (a book 5′ tall)?  The government, of course.  Wall Street bankers and brokers can’t do what they do without the blessing of the tax code and the rules and regulations of the S.E.C. (a government unit), or they go to jail.  It wasn’t the rich, or Wall Street who bailed the bankers and brokers out, but the Bush and Obama administrations, the government. And Obama far more than Bush.  Of course in many instances he did so to repay the unions for the hundreds of millions in contributions.

So who should the cannons be aimed at?  Obviously, the government.

I find it interesting that Occupy Wall Street is extremely well organized, and obviously well financed.  Doesn’t that seem a little strange for a supposedly impromptu group?  A “city within a city” is how one reporter described the group.  There are task forces in charge of food, security, first aid, sanitation, legal help, a library, and Internet access.  The medical tent is well stocked with supplies and the food and drink flow.  There are t-shirts, signs, etc., etc., all examples of a very organized group.

Why hasnt’ the press or anyone in the news media questioned who is paying the tab?

I speculate that George Soros, in the guise of many of his liberal organizations is paying the tab.  George Soros, who’s used many tactics to destroy economies in the past, and is smiling, fiddling, while he thinks Rome is beginning to burn.

Herman Cain said it best, “to be angry at some because they’re successful is un-American.”  Be angry at yourselves, Occupy Wall Street, for making the job choices you’ve made, for taking the easy, the safe, way.  Or better yet, accept the safe road you’ve taken, and if there are bumps therein, blame government.  Of course, in many instances, those picketing have mad no job choices at all; they’re there for the free lunch, the chance to kick sand in the big guys face.  Where do you think those unemployment checks originate?  From the government?  No, dummy, from the people, from whom all taxes come, and most from the top 5% of earners.  You’re very close to getting your way, but you won’t destroy the rich, you’ll only run them out of the country, as you already have so many companies, and what you’ll end up with is a failing system…in case you haven’t noticed, you’re almost a hundred years behind the time.  The Russians already tried it.

So go ahead, occupy Wall Street, or go back to work for your safe monthly check and then, if you have an ounce of chicken guts,  march doing something productive four hours after each day’s work, do something trying to join those you’re trying to destroy…the rich.  Put in 12 hours a day like I do.  And trust me, your marching will be more productive to both you, your self-worth and self-esteem, and the country.

Occupy Wall Street, or occupy yourself being productive.
