Personally, I feel these people need to “Occupy” a life. I find it humorous that they just want to be angry at banks and big corporations and tell the whole world about it using Facebook and their iPads. And shoot, when the stomach gets empty while protesting with all that rage in the streets, why not just shoot over to the ATM, take out a few bucks and get a coffee from “Four Bucks?” You see, all this makes sense since they are mad at big corporations and banks, and — oh wait — those are banks and big corporations making all this possible for you.
I’d be curious to see how well they could get along out there in the streets without all that. It’s a good thing that a few coffee cup sleeves taped together could make a nice scarf for the cold nights. If your iPad has a rubber case: it may make a nice pillow.
Turn your anger toward the true culprit. I went to Grand Valley State University and they now “Occupy” my wallet for the forseeable future. I’m angry because I didn’t get a Barack Obummer sticker to show for it. File your complaints with them and the other inflated wannabe educational institutions — and while you’re at it, do so using the USPS — it would help things along so you don’t end up having them next to you down on Wall Street — remember the last time they got angry? So the real question is when will the three to five people sympathetic to PETA and their friends who were protesting on behalf of the deer a few years back “Occupy” the greater Grand Haven downtown area. I propose they do because we’ll be in need of some much-needed entertainment now that the tourists have gone home.
