|Will Smith gets it.|
I get it... corporations are greedy, we need more jobs, give rich people less money blah blah blah. We hear it all the time, but sitting on your asses, blocking traffic isn't the most productive way of going about changing it.
Why don't you give up on making it happen in an instant, get a mediocre job, work your way up, stop going out every night and getting hulk smashed, save some money, become president, and get shit done. Like, it's that fuckin' easy! But you know what? The guy who IS doing that is going to come out from behind door number 3 some day, and shock everybody. People are gonna be like "who the fuck is this clown?" and then BOOM! Bro gets elected as president and he's all "while you lazy assholes were bitching and moaning in tents on the side of the road, I was working at the job you weren't happy with, and NOW look at me!"
Now, I'm not saying I'm going to attempt to be this person, who are we kidding... I'm just going to be lost in the system like the rest of you reading this, but like.. really. Get off your asses and DO something about it. Protesting is a joke, it's over done. I know, I know, you have a message and you want to get it across... well guess what? You're only making yourselves look like lazy dirty stinky bums. I bet if you were the 1% you'd be sitting in your penthouses pissing off the balcony to the Occupying people below. If you say any different you're full of it.
I also get how you think there's power in numbers, but money is numbers too. Go back to work, SAVE. YOUR. MONEY. (that means no more pbr's and car bombs) and change things for yourself. Stop expecting everything to be handed to you. FUCK, start a damn blog, get advertisers, make your own money! It's not that hard, stop blaming corporate greed for your lack of motivation to get off your asses and work harder.
Immigrants did it for themselves back when a lot of our grandparents were just getting to this country in the early 1900's... what's your excuse?
I'm probably going to get trolled for this post with a bunch of "you're missing the point"'s and "you don't get it" and what not... maybe I don't completely understand every single person's reason for joining an Occupy protest. Maybe I don't even fully know what the whole protest is about... but I'm a part of the majority... the 99%, and I'm not alone in thinking that there are better ways to change things than this kind of protest.
