Offal on Wall Street

So, a bunch of shrill, malodorous, malcontents have taken up residence in various and sundry public places in cities around the country. In between eerie chanting and defecating on everything in sight, they are protesting...something. They're not sure what it is, but they know it has something to do with capitalism. Or war. Or something.

Let's face it; these are not serious people. Oh, maybe a few of them are. The first few that started the protest might have been, but like the person who tells one too many people about his house party, the movement soon became overrun with people who neither know nor care about whatever the cause is.

This is not the Tea party. The Tea Party knows what it wants and what their goal is. The OWS crowd seem aimless to me. They say that they blame the banks for the current economic crisis and then they extol the virtues of the very institution that really caused the crisis. They claim to love this country and then they defile the very symbol of this nation.

The best thing that could happen is for everyone to ignore these losers and, hopefully, they'll all just go back home.
