50 years, and more of the same?

Another Sunday in October, and the gut-less, mind-less, job-less, pantywaists are still camped on Wall Street. I might find this amusing or even interesting if I didn’t believe that most of these “protesters” were not spending any appreciable amount of time actually on Wall Street. Oh sure there are lots of videos showing the protesters camped out in the park, but how many of them have spent even two nights there?

Strangely, I was trying to find some form of comparison to their parents and the protests, sit-ins, tree hugging, ad nauseam, but I really couldn’t. I looked at ‘mom and dads’ old black and whites of Woodstock, and the more modern (2009 incarnation) on the internet. And while the folks in 1969 might (and I use ‘might’ fairly broadly) have been worth looking at in the buff then, 40 years and an untold number of miles later, you would have to either be in love with them, or in need of SERIOUS psychoanalysis to want to see them naked in 2009. Which, I suppose brings me back to the Wall Street protests.

In the 60’s protesters placed themselves in fairly uncomfortable positions i.e. chained to posts, sitting on hard concrete, in front of Bull Connor’s “Bully Boys” (he’ll get his own post later) to make a point.

Today, the left just doesn’t seem to have the same fire or passion for their “unassailable” positions. When I look at the muddled state of their protests; the “camp sites” (with mattress’ for Pete’s Sake – I want to know who delivered those), the Yoga seminars, and the – apparently - catered meals, I just have to shake my head.

These are the Yahoo’s WE are supposed to be afraid of? REALLY!?

I just can’t believe that the liberal/socialist/fascist planners and organizers that caused so much dissent in the 1960’s can’t manage to organize a group of college students into the lock-stepping force for “change” that they played at forty plus years ago.

What makes that drivel so hard to swallow is that when they were the protesters they had little if any power, now they hold high office, in the city, county, state, and even federal government. And this pathetic dust-up is the best they can do?

I think not, unfortunately, it’s the part we can see. We dare not be the side to throw the first punch, or fire the first shot, but while we wait on the moral high ground, what are they doing to our Country?
