Three Random Thoughts on the Day of Rage

So some leftists held a “day of rage” in NYC to protest the evils of Wall Street and corporate America.  It sounds like it kind of fell flat… much like Obama’s leftist policies.  Three thoughts:

1) If Tea Partiers held a day of rage, they’d be lambasted as dangerous, angry white people.  Leftist ragers just care too much.

2) One protestor complained, “You need a scorecard to keep track of all the things that corporations have done that are bad for this country.”  I have no doubt this purist’s clothing was handmade by his hippie wife, rather than by an evil corporation.  And he couldn’t have been carrying a cell phone, because those are made by evil corporations too.  Probably grows his own food too, doesn’t eat in restaurants, uses pedal power to self-power his home…  Gosh, those evil corporations have made our lives miserable.  The protest was organized via Twitter and Facebook – those couldn’t be corporations!  (They are possibly evil, however).

3) Another protestor bemoaned the lack of jobs.  Yeah.  Let’s get rid of all the corporations that actually hire people.  That will improve the unemployment rate for sure!


About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
