sonny and cher.The tea-partiers were generally over 50, had college educations, and jobs. The "occupy my butt cheeks" protesters are generally in their teens and early twenties, not college-educated, not what anyone would call well-read, and jobless.
They are mostly the socially dysfunctional who would be in the exact same life position had the Hispanic Housing Meltdown never occurred. Living at mom's house, texting to Facebook on their iPhones.
Question: How can you folks protest for a solution when you don't even understand a fraction of the problem?
You make a good point. Visualizing the taxpayer funded "make work" projects following the revolution, the revolutionaries who had seized control of taxpayer financed academia advised "the children" to undergo taxpayer funded political indoctrination at taxpayer financed Government controlled universities. The revolutionaries gave stiff warning that anyone failing to heed their self-interested advice might result in, unlike themselves, being subject to engaging in a lifetime of productive labor. They also told their prospects that they "could be anything they wanted to be". The declining quality of life of all elements of American society provides ample evidence of the numbers who took the advice, whether or not they had the intellectual capacity to preform.
The revolutionary protesters of the 60s 70s were well motivated through the self-interest in avoiding being drafted into fulfilling their obligation to preform national service. Today's well fed and well cared cared for protesters - often at the expense of the hard working taxpaying minority - have no such motivation to inspire them into burning all our major cities as the 60s 70s revolutionaries *(now in power)* once did.
One of the hardest things for us to come to terms with is our own place in the scheme of things. Unlike the revolutionary 60s 70s people who made such a mess of things, today's protesters must set realistic objectives for themselves. For example, field hand workers are in short supply in many States. Unemployment is simply a non issue for anyone desiring to engage in gainful employment.
The 60s 70s revolutionaries *(now in power)* seized control of the richest and most "democratic" nation the world has ever seen. We see the effects of that ill conceived misadventure all around us today. In today's more competitive world we can ill afford making the same mistakes in the future as they made of the past. Today's protesters must get busy repairing the damage.
