OWS: The self-esteem movement’s chickens come home to roost

Bill Whittle is on a roll with his last two videos. This new Afterburner episode reminds us what the Occupy Wall Street movement is really about, and why they are complaining. OWS might not know, but Bill Whittle does, and now you will too.

I’ll post this up and if we get enough comments on the subject today and tomorrow morning, maybe Jim will feature the topic on the big radio show tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. ET.

The Occupy Wall Street protesters are complaining about everything from corporations to having to repay student loans. Is America the victim of its own success? Have we created a generation of self-entitled cry babies? Is it time to make these people spend three and half days in the woods so that they can appreciate what capitalism has given them? Find out.

    4000 years of judo-christian ethics and discipline rendered the greatest nation in history and its greatest generation.? 50 years of situational ethics and educational psychobabble gave us the entitlement society and its gimme generation.? Dear God, what will the future bring?

    Hey there Jim,??? Untill yesterday I had never heard of Bill Whittle. I am so impressed with this man. His out look on the OWS mob is so on the money, so to speak. I’ll bet the OWS malcontents are really steaming over this man’s opinion. I would realy love to meet Mr. Whittle to sit down with down him and chat over a cup of coffee. Or maybe a PBR.

    He’s right,but, it isn’t only young kids down there. Some are in their sixties and want to relive the protest days of their youth.? Most liberals have no idea what growing up means.

    Getting back to a mandatory two year military service for eighteen year olds, would go a long way to re-focusing our youth to the real world.

    Like I said over a week ago in the chat room. The people in OWS simply want the government to take over where their parents left off. “what I been on the job for 2 weeks and I am not president yet?” “I woke up this morning, where’s my BMW and high paying job?”

    Questions to ponder:?
    ?
    Isn’t this the same demographic group that specifically voted in ?bama and his cronies to “fix” these problems??? Are they being asked if they are disenchanted with ?bama and his economic flailing?? Are they thankful to be in a country where they can have these demonstrations?

      Geez.I can’t believe you still don’t get it. (Well, maybe I do…you are reading the right wing spin.) They are not Democrats, they are not Republicans. They are not out there to elect or reelect anyone.
      Mainly they are not anti-capitalism, they are anti-corruption (legal and illegal).

        I hope you are right, but there is a rather large number of Democrat allies trying to latch onto these kids.? And judging by the targets of their protest, they don’t seem to be going after “traditional” Democrat supporters.

    It has amazed me how much coverage the media has given these protestors.? cnbc has been interviewing them in ny, and making them out to be heroes.? intersting though, few can actually articulate a coherent and persuasive argument for why they are there, and what they expect the alternative(s) to be.

    Couple issues to take note on gille28.? Sunglasses are worn by many of the youth due to the fact that they’ve not been out of their parents’ basements in two decades while gaming 24/7.? As well, fashion tip:? Bell Bottoms will come back strong this year.? Sorry, I thought that would be humourous.
    As for Bill Whittle, I completely agree with his assessments of the situation down there on Wall Street.? The worse thing that could happen to this movement is a lack of focus and meaning.? This will become uglier as time grows on.? These youths down there do not resemble the “movements” of the 60’s.? These are just frustrated, aimless youths ready to take the side of whom ever,? just like the german children of the generation Swingjugend.!!!
    History is repeating itself once more.

      Dimsdale says:

      The frustration will come from the fact that even they don’t really know why they are there.? When the inevitable “nothing” happens, they will either depart or descend to their anarchist roots and start tearing up the place.

      LOL on the sunglasses remark!? 😉

    This OWS “protest” is really a commentary and judgment on the Obama Regime’s policies.? These spoiled brats can no more articulate why they are “protesting” than realize that they are pawns of political corporations such as the DNC, the Nazi Party, the Communists. They are being co-oped and they are not even aware of it.
    Their precious educations have utterly failed them; thus, they feel that lashing out at “evil corporations” (a surrogate for their parents) is justifiable. They are looking at starting out their careers, many thousands of dollars in deficit because of their educations, and don’t like it. They are immigrants in their own land. With no silver spoon, they are starting out having to work. Dirty word. They are acting out their angst by protesting. They are acting out.
    They need a time-out. I wonder how Rikers Island would appeal to these “protesters”?

    Based on Obama’s approval rating, I’d venture to guess that more than just conservatives are disenchanted with Obama.? And I find it almost laughable that he can praise the OWS movement and come across as supporting them and their cause, yet hasn’t addressed the legitimate concerns being expressed.? “A man of words and not of deeds is like a garden full of weeds.”? Though he is, as Jim points out, our young president, he is not too young to remember a time when you could graduate high school and find a job at a factory if you were not college-bound.? Well, they’ve all left.? We need to get back to the day where it paid to own a business here.? And I look to both sides of the aisle for some hope and change. (but my eyes are getting sore)

    Hey Crystal, there’s enough blame to go around.? The entire institutional set-up in the US and the world is a disaster: education, politics, transport, health, security, economics?- you name it, it needs to start over.? BUT,?who of us?can say they don’t have a beam in their own eye, when they’re picking on the mote in the vision of the so-called opposition.?? Much of youth is idealistic, but not practical.??Most of us older are more set in our ways – traditional, one would like to think wiser, but not always the case.
    At the risk of being boring, it is the?failing of human nature to pervert, distort and corrupt what may have been?decent, original concepts.? This is completely politically neutral.? Doesn’t matter what?the philosophies, unless the institution is based, BUILT ON on and protected by moral and spiritual principles, it will be on a false foundation and invite ultimate destruction.? Unless we first change ourselves, according to Godly standards, the world will never change for the better.? Can’t happen. Won’t happen, no matter how much protest or belly-aching we all make.

    Please don’t misunderstand me Crystal, I don’t feel it’s all Obama’s fault. But the politicians are all bought and paid for. So when I listen to Obama, or any other politician, talk about OWS i feel it’s all lipservice.
