Wall Street: Clean up on block five
At least Woodstock only lasted for three days and then they all
went home. Occupy Wall Street doesn't have an end date.
I could never be a protester for the same reason I have never
liked primitive camping -- I'm too attached to good personal hygiene.
I just saw a website selling authentic Occupy Wall Street T-shirts.
Authentic must mean the shirts come to you dirty and in need of
I've listened to some of the speakers, particularly the ones
where a leader shouts into a bullhorn and then all the other protesters
nearby repeat the words the leader said to pass the message on to
the protesters in the back.
I keep waiting for the leader to yell, "I need a shower!"
The masses echo: "I need a shower!"
Instead the leader yells, "Down with the rich!"
Echo: "Down with the rich!"
Then a few well-scrubbed, well-groomed celebrities stop by in
their designer jeans and $200 cotton shirts for the purpose of sharing
their hatred for the rich. Once they're through feeling the pain,
they hop back in their gas guzzlers and speed off to their sprawling
mansions. Leader: "Down with the rich!"
Echo: "Down with the rich!"
Leader: "But not the ones we like!"
Echo: "But not the ones we like!"
They're upset about the economy. So, who isn't?
Most of us don't have the time to hang out in a public park or
town square week after week. We're doing mundane things like working,
fueling the tax base, tending families, lugging trash barrels to
the curb, sorting mail, paying bills, running laundry, doing dishes,
going to bed, getting up in the morning and doing it all over again.
Our lives are like the small print on the shampoo bottles (back
to the cleanliness theme again): wash, rinse, repeat. It's all about
Those of us doing that crazy work and family thing don't bathe
in McDonald's restrooms, dance topless in public parks, expect free
college for our kids, sleep on donated cots, relieve ourselves on
police cars or post Facebook pleas asking for trash bags for our
We also don't crawl into some woman's tent and lick her feet,
sexually assault minors, solicit for prostitution or gross out hotel
workers on the night shift with public displays of inappropriate
After an Occupy camp was dispersed in Richmond, Va., a bulldozer
was called in to clear the plaza of furniture, bedding, pizza boxes,
cups, bottles and assorted trash that piled up over two weeks. So
much for going green and saving the planet.
It's questionable whether we're witnessing a political protest
or an out of control party for aging adolescents.
Leader: "Grow up!"
Echo: "Grow up!"
