The zombie youth “occupying” Wall Street are contemptuous of the world that sustains their comforts.
Michael Oher, offensive lineman for the Baltimore Ravens, was online on Wednesday night when his Twitter feed started filling up with tributes to Steve Jobs. A bewildered Oher tweeted: “Can somebody help me out? Who was Steve Jobs!”

Steyn nails it - they are anarchists for Big Government - nothing more than Soros pawns in a desparate attempt to create a phony movement. "If this is the best they can do, theyre done for."
Love the Big Sloth comment. They probably resemble their animal counterparts; nasty odor and green coating of algae.
Excellent article, which is the usual fare from Steyn.
| Let the Occupy Wall Streeters rant so America can clearly see progressives as the vapid lunatics they are.
Here's a few to begin: $20 minimum wage regardless of employment, trillions of dollars in new spending on alternative energy and infrastructure, and debt forgiveness -- all debt on the entire planet.
All this looks like Obama's re-distribute wealth conversation with self-employed plumber Joe Wurzelbacher in Toledo, Ohio on October 12, 2008.
''Your new tax plan is going to tax me more, isn't it?'' Wurzlebacher asked.
Obama explained, ''I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.''
The more they talk economic justice/redistributive change, the worse it is for Zer0.
Liberalism has finally succeeded in creating an entire generation that feels they are entitled to other people's stuff without actually having to work for it.
Only these idiots, who are forever trapped in the entitlement mentality, would want to reconstitute the Soviet Union in modern 21st century America.
FYI Michael Oher is the football player in the movie The Blind Side.
How can someone with an iPhone not know who Steve Jobs is ?
Come on Mark. The computer industry innovation wasn't a one-man band.
Ummmm, have you missed something or do you not know that the Bush and Obama administrations allowed the complete theft and robbery of the people in support of the Federal Reserve’s free flow printing of money which went to a select few banks? Ummm, do you not know that a multitude of big businesses use obscure accounting techniques to escape paying the taxes that small business owners must pay? Not everyone on Wall Street occupying that area are leftists. Some are in support of Ron Paul. They want to abolish the Federal Reserve. Furthermore, it is this same Federal Reserve with its fractional reserve banking that is bankrupting and destroying our middle class. These policies it can be shown over time encourage needless wars. Do you really think we need to be deployed all over God’s green earth? The founders did not.
Using animals as derogatory examples of human behavior only illustrates how far the human species has fallen from grace.
Pigs, sloths, snakes, rhinos, rats, termites and vultures all function as God intended. None of them are slaves or victims of government ‘spread the welfare’.
All critters are conservatives!
These kids are the most abrasive, obnoxious people I’ve ever seen. Where do they come from?
My husband and I teach young actors in NYC (all in the same age bracket as these brats) and they work hard and play by the rules! But then, in order to live in NYC and pursue their love, they must pay rent and work at menial jobs. They almost never complain.
When one zombie was told this morning by a reporter that the owner of the privately-owned park was upset with the trashing going on, the brat replied: “Have him get in touch with me.” I could have punched him through the tv screen.
If they are there in support of Ron Paul, they are leftists.
Don't confuse poor leadership with a need to abolish a central bank.
Back to "Occupy Wall Street". Is it possible LRon Paul stooges are a part of this pathethic movement? Bussed in by Soros? Hmmmmm.
The October movement is to echo the Bolshevik Revolution which took place in October 1917.
~Like this isn’t coordinated by Van Jones and Moveon
I wasn’t denigrating animals. We have a Giant Sloth at our Zoo who smells terrible and is coated with algae so he looks green. He is doing what the Lord created him to do. These obnoxious ‘occupiers’ are not doing what they were created to do, but then these ‘occupiers’ wouldn’t accept that there is a God.
Steyn is awesome. This whole thing reminds me of Ayn Rand, 40 some years ago, comparing Woodstock to the launch of Apollo 11. “Apollo and Dionysus,” it was called. This OWS, if compared to the Tea Party, would be similar.
What I’m impressed by /not/ is the nicely designed, mass produced (arrgggh, by capitalists?) signs that are anything but hand-scrawled. Who did they pay to design those? to print them? WHO paid them?
He is a FOOTBALL PLAYER. Sharpest knife in the kitchen? Hardly. He doesn’t have to know much other than the owners check cleared the bank. Pampered and spoiled, they seldom bother to learn anything other than what is required to play their position.
Please don’t take that comment as a personal criticism.
We (humans) have always compared animal behavior to our competitors and enemies...even as we assign positive (warm & fuzzy or ferocious) animal mascots to ourselves.
Classic Marxist tactic. Infiltrate those with valid grievances.
Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with Michael Oher's history before denigrating him.
