#OWS Comparisons That Irritate Me

First we have people who tell us that

"The Occupy Wall Street protests are explicitly inspired by, and modeled on, the Tahrir Square protests in Egypt"

Now Stacey Hessler says

"Military people leave their families all the time, so why should I feel bad?” a defiant Hessler said. “I’m fighting for a better world."

Get a grip! You are not fighting a war. you are not risking your life for a cause. You are not being shot at. The government is not suppressing your right to free speech.

As a matter of fact, mayors and government officials are bending over backwards for you. People are bringing you food and clothes.

You are not at war. You are at a Boy Scout Jamboree. You are staying up all night and eating marshmallows even though you know your mom would disapprove.

Get over yourself.

The Boy Scouts would keep a MUCH cleaner camp and would respect the rights of others.

I hate to tell those fools, the Tahrir Square protests have become a joke. I hear them every Friday. Nothing happens. No good comes from them. They simply gather (now in the tens to hundreds) chant over poor quality amplifiers. They shout and jump around. No one pays attention. The teenage boy cops just stare, pick their noses, then throw their fast food trash on the ground after a good smoke.
I hope these Occupy folks realize their voices are being heard by no one. Get frostbite, bottom 99%. Idiots.
