Cracks in the Foundation…Bats in the Belfry

(HT:  Patriot Post)  Arnold Ahlert nails it concisely (emphases added):

The trouble with the OWS movement is that it’s centered around two concepts, both of which are abject lies. First and foremost, it doesn’t represent ninety-nine percent of anything, no mater how many time the protesters themselves, their enablers, or a corrupt mainstream media repeats the slogan. Second, there is nothing inherently virtuous about being poor or middle class, any more than there is anything inherently evil about being wealthy. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a liar or a fool. Percentage-wise, there are just as many low-lifes on Main Street as there are on Wall Street, and if people don’t like the direction in which this country is moving, they might want to consider the fact that the "everything is a shade of gray" moral relativism that afflicts this nation is the ultimate scourge. And make no mistake: it is a virus that infects every ethnic group, both genders and, as you may have guessed, every income class.

Until some kind of national integrity is restored, everything else comes down to dealing with the symptoms of the problem instead of the problem itself. How do you restore integrity? One self-aware person at a time coming to the realization that without it, you’re nothing but the member of a mob, whether that mob resides in Zuccotti Park, a bank boardroom, or the Beltway in Washington, D.C.

You want to camp out all winter and rail against the inequities of the world? Knock yourself out. I’m hoping a writer’s job or two opens up as a result.

Meanwhile, on the home front…

    All I see are a bunch of ingrates and anarchists. Check my blog out Interface. I posted all the groups that are backing these people. It is somewhat horrifying in itself.

    Couldn’t agree more, Pepperhawk!

    Interface,

    How long do you think these pampered people are going to stay out in NYC when it gets really brrrrrrrr cold?

    I predict that as the public interest wains these mobs will become increasing violent in an attempt to keep the spotlight focused on themselves. Politically, I think it’s a gift for the right.

    Oh, it certainly has had a certain entertainment value to see such vacuity on display for all!
