Professor Mondo is seeing it everywhere, too.
But is ridiculing the unfocused, college socialist pablum really hypocritical after complaining about the Tea Party, as one of his commentators suggests?
Where is Samuel Jackson to dismiss the entire OWS crowd as racists?
Why is OWS not being ignored by the media?
Why are the OWS numbers being inflated, rather than significantly deflated?
Where are the portrayals of the OWS group as anything less than noble heroes?
Where is the emphasis on the absence of black participation?
Where is the conviction that the OWS kids are being organized by a group (which they are) rather than emphasis on its grass-roots spontaneity (which OWS lacks)?
And on and on.
There is a wide gulf between the OWS and the Tea Party, and people of honest intellect will admit this. There is not a single point in common.
The Tea Party, whatever it is, remains a manifest and quite overt movement.
The OWS crowd is a bunch of disaffected kids being rallied by the public sector unions (their own words, by the way) to combat the eeeevils of the private sector workforce. This has everything to do with the collapse in popularity of the public unions, which are so increasingly ineffective they have to recruit college kids to stage a protest.
Winter is coming. Let us see how long the kids can last with their corporate power generators, corporate tents, and corporate iPhones in the cold.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
