Occupy protesters want their own bailout

November 08, 2011

Encouraged by the support of President Barack Obama and his posse, the Occupy Wall Street protesters are trashing American cities, claiming that it's the "rich" people who are the cause of their "impoverishment."

To "correct" this alleged "injustice," they demand that the rich share their wealth with them. How? Well, President Obama wants the affluent to pay more taxes to the federal government. How will doing this provide the protesters with "affordable" comfortable housing, top quality cradle-to-grave medical care, meaningful, rewarding educations at colleges and universities, permanent good-paying jobs and cushy, guaranteed early retirements?

It won't!
