    The Wall Street protesters are a bunch of misinformed idiots that don't know what they want and have little to so self respect absolutely no knowledge of what the economy is based on or any idea how it works.

    If they wanted a job they'd go out and get one.

    Hopefully they take a shower first.

    His point just completely went over your head. Either that or you're just pretending to be a dumbass.

    **** that doesn't actually make a difference in the world, but just makes you look like a douchebag:

    1. Wearing tea bags on your head
    2. Occupying Wall Street
    3. Standing on a street with a sign yelling at passersby
    4. Personal boycotts of companies/products
    5. Attending rallies with the intention of getting arrested so that you can tell your bros how you stood up to The Man
    Perfect, love it.

    I can't stand mass protests.
    These people seem to, generally, be ignorant idiots.
    That goes for both Tea Party and Occupy Wallstreet.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
