A $5,500 Mac? I’m assuming 18 year old Nan Terrie owned a MacBook Pro loaded with software which she values at $5,500, and it totally sucks that someone stole it, but isn’t that the entire premise of this movement? Some people (the have-nots) are being left behind and they are getting screwed by the rich (the haves).
From the New York Post.
“I had my Mac stolen — that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”
Crafty cat burglars sneaked into the makeshift kitchen at Zuccotti Park overnight and swiped as much as $2,500 in donated greenbacks from right under the noses of volunteers who’d fallen asleep after a long day whipping up meals for the hundreds of hungry protesters, the volunteers said.
If you own a $5,500 Mac… at 18 years of age… Why can’t you get alone with a $2,000 Mac? Oh, never mind…
This movement is suggesting the 1 percent – at least in part – do not deserve what they have. They may claim it was stolen, but that’s not the case at all. If someone committed a crime to steal money, that person would be prosecuted.
You own that $5,500 Mac Nan, and someone out there thought you did not deserve it, so they took it. Nan, don’t you think a huge part of the crowd you’re camping out with would simply take a $5,500 Mac from a Wall Street banker if they thought they could get away with it?
Well, we know some part of your crowd thought it was perfectly acceptable to steal your Mac and help themselves to cash.

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air notes…
Who’d have thought that a crowd of people demanding the seizure of wealth from banks, corporations, and the wealthy might also have a few thieves? I’m shocked,shocked to find theft occurring in a group that has hijacked private property it refuses to leave. I can’t imagine that a crowd that demands free higher education and the forgiveness of tens of thousands in student debt would also think of someone’s Mac or an iPhone as equally as communal as a college education.
