But hey, it’s so cool to send your friends pics of the protest taken with your new cell phone that has all the latest bells and whistles!
It only convinces me all the more that this country has been infected with a disdain for learning an honest skill and an honest living. All of these modern students don’t want to work, they just want to live a luxurious life on an income and then go about enjoying the latest trendy cause.
“Its like the 60s all over again, except theyre not protesting the war.”

Perhaps they hate Obama and simply can’t go about denouncing him since it would result in bad press and no celebrity appearances. So they project their inadequacies onto Wall Street, a perfectly easy target.
