That’s okay, they’re united in their hate and stupidity. For that matter, they’re united in their hate and stupidity with Jon Stewart. Thanks grundle.

I’ll bet most of the “poor” people’s cell phones are more advanced than mine.

And how did they keep their laptops and electronics charged?

I heard that there were a few I-Macs shared by the homeless.

Probably at the pawnshop right about now.

Samantha Bee did a marvelous job. I especially liked when she asked one asshole if they took a class on condescension. He obviously did not get it.

The rich side and the poor side (no middle) are so stupid, they don’t realize what hypocrites they are.

Note the elitist near the end who tries to distinguish between private property (which he opposes) and personal property (which he is not willing to share). He’s too dumb to realize that after a few successive rounds of looting and redistributing the wealth of that round’s 1%, eventually he will get to a point where he is the 1%.

So the drum circle wasn’t invited to the Deutche Bank Atrium for the Occupy leadership conference where decisions were being made on how to create a “horizontal, leaderless society”.

Got it.

What a perfect test-tube to illustrate the facts of psychology and society: society naturally layers itself into the competent, energetic, creative, and determined on top, making the decisions and prospering, with lazy, disorganized, unambitious and mostly unintelligent sorts making up the lower levels and resenting their betters.

Or if you're poor and don't have a laptop, it's *twinkles down.*

Well then I’ll have to block (arms crossed in an X), then demand a point of process (both hands up, thumbs and index fingers touching), then “got your nose”, then detached thumb....it’s a whole new world.

If you block, I'm going to report you to that female-bodied person, Mustard. I mean, Mayonnaise. Or is it Ranch Dressing? Horseradish?

Well, you know....that female-bodied person.

Napoleon was holding his pig conference in the farmer's house. The lesser animals were not invited.

Orwell really "got" these people.

I was baffled by that guy. What is the difference between personal property and private property, eh? And this “I want a society where everyone has access....” we have that. They’re called LIBRARIES and some of the ones in Los Angeles have been pretty much taken over by the homeless.

I love that interviewer, especially the comment:
“”Is there a course in condescension that everyone is taking here?”

I never watch Jon Stewart - is that supposed to be live, ‘cause it sounds like it has a laugh track to me.

Plugged into the outlet at the nearest Starbucks while sipping their caramel machiatto?

They even have an Apple pop-up store at Zucotti park. These hippy& lib& commie protesters only use high priced Apple devices. This would make a great advertisement for Apple

You reminded me that someone else asked that question but a LOT louder and more profanely. But he's so funny at times (Bat Day) that I laugh 'til my sides hurt.

Way too dirty to post here, but search youtube for "the kid from brooklyn" and turn your speakers wayyyyy down so no-one hears. He has done at least a couple rants on coffee shops.

Needs to be incorporated into what Mr.K said earier:
I love this~!

It is all the failures of Socialism captured in high speed! like a time-lapse photo of 40 years squeezed down to 2 months.

First the exhilaration and chanting

Then the lazy people sitting around waiting to be fed, crapping all over themselves (no one ‘assigned’ to wash them, I guess)

Followed by workers strike for less overtime (the food servers)

Next complaints that monies being donated are not ‘shared’ equally- the elites among them decided to keep it and spend it on their choice

Then the complaints that some are eating who dont ‘deserve’ it (the people who want the government to feed the homeless don’t want to feed the homeless)

Lawlessness (crapping on police cars, rapes, theft, violence and now murder)

Then desease and pestilence

I was expecting conscription into working on the food service line, followed by lynching those who steal food when they are hungry when there is not enough left to ‘share’

But I guess the Democraps in charge are letting the police clean it up before it gets just TOO embarrassing for them to distance themselves from it

I'm not quite clever enough to do it seamlessly.
