Occupiers Are Shown To Have No Clue About Anything

New York Magazine decided to brave the unsanitary and squalid conditions of Zuccotti Park and ask questions of the Occupy Wall Street folks. 50 of these supposedly super smart and informed Occupiers …..how smart can one be to go days without bathing and changing clothes while living with people doing the same?…..were asked questions, and, the answers were not pretty

So, these folks who are whining about banks, and about the $5 fee from Bank Of America (they’ve gone to BoA to protest multiple times) have no clue. These same morons are advocating for everyone to pull their money out of banks on November 15th, because of the unintended consequences of Dodd-Frank.

A whopping 10% know that the marginal rate is between 25-50%. It’s actually 35%. Ninety percent are clueless.

This one is rather sad, since Lefties were pushing hard for Elizabeth Warren to be the first commissar, er, head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, created by, yup, Frank-Dodd. She was chair of the panel which oversaw TARP. And she is running for Scott Brown’s (R-Mass) Senate seat. The fact that only 24% have somewhat of a clue should be embarrassing.

In fact, health care and pensions accounts for 43% of the budget, and the military only 20%, as the New Yorker points out. John Hindaraker at Powerline writes: “To be blunt, people this dumb should be ashamed to show their faces in public, let alone try to tell the rest of us how to run the country.” Quite true. Only 28% know that the SEC is the Securities and Exchange Commission. 38% know that “Bernake” is the head of the Federal Reserve, despite all the signs about abolishing/auditing the Fed.

But, then, if they were really smart, they wouldn’t need to advocate for redistributing other people’s money to themselves.

More: Michelle Malkin points out that the morons are planning on using Robin Hood as a symbol, despite RH robbing from the government tax collector to give back to the over-taxed.

    Whats funny is finding the Democrats fully embracing this movement on wall street.

    These are radical far left….way out their left COMMUNISTS and ANARCHISTS and the democratic party is embracing them.

    That just shows how radical the Democratic party has become with the progressive movement.

    They are communists. Pure and simple. That is why I write to the publishers of many magazines and newspapers telling them to get a grip and to realize what it is they are advocating.

    They are advocating their OWN DEMISE……..what are they thinking…..

    Every month I send out more letters to more newspapers and magazines…perhaps one day it will stick.

    Never stop. Never stop advocating for the Freedom that is America…….we must fight lies with the truth. Corporations are not evil they just have regulations that allow them to do shitty things if they choose…….and they will choose because it pads their bottom lines.

    How many of us will not take the earned income credit if the tax man says hey your eligible for a 5000 dollar tax rebate? I suspect everyone of us will take what is coming to us.

    The problem is that these radicals on wall street want every day to be christmas in America to the point it will extinct the American way of life……

    Which is EXACTLY what progressives want.

    Progressive=communist. nuff said. Our president is a commie and the sooner our MSM grasps this idea the sooner they will save their livelyhood, because the first thing to go in a coup is the truth and the MSM is the supposed tellers of the truth. Hence the first thing to go is always the MSM.

    What are these guys thinking….???

    I don’t know they are too busy shouting AMEN……..praise Obama!!
