HuffPo contributor, George Lakoff, thinks the next step for the Occupy loons is to occupy the election booths and gain electoral power like the TEA party did two years ago. This is, presumably, after they’ve learned to wipe themselves. But, then, proper hygiene isn’t constitutionally required, so…….
Of course, Lakoff is advocating the Occupiers try to co-opt the Democratic party, all of few dozens scattered around the nation. This would be a role reversal, and I don’t think the occupiers will go for it. You see, the Dems are bankrolling those children, and I think the children are perfectly happy to have the free money roll in. If they were to try and move some of the funders out, their gravy train would likely end.
But, for argument’s sake, let’s say these kids learn some basic hygiene and how to where shoes without Velcro. Do they hold enough sway and support as to be able to make some significant in roads to even the Dem party? Well, we just had a test case of about how much sway and support the Occupy people have over the general American public. As it was widely reported, the Occupy people had attempted to convince the public to boycott Black Friday. (The nations biggest shopping day.) How did America respond? We saw an eclipsing of all the records of spending on Black Friday. Now, I’m not going to say that all of that was a good thing. If personal debt increased much because of this action then it would have been a poor decision. But, it is worth bringing up because it illustrates the impact the Occupy loons are having on the American people.
Unlike the TEA party, the Occupy people have no coherent message. The TEA party, took up as their banner, lower taxes, limited government, and specifically no preferential treatment for the large corporations and banks. For those that forgot, the TEA party originated during the 1st round of bailouts. What do the Occupiers have? Just filth and anger. No one is going to listen to these children. They’ve gone beyond just embarrassing themselves, they’re an embarrassment to this nation, and, in the words of Nancy Pelosi, “God bless them”, they’re an embarrassment to the Democratic party.
