*OWS: A Futile Disaster*

Ugh...   Ask 10 protesters what exactly it IS they're protesting and you would be hard-pressed to find even one that was supported by a rational basis of thought, or not fraught with miscommunication about the personal fiscal benefits people received from the bank bailouts, or at least offer a single solution as to what needs to be changed.   Let's face it: OWS is nothing but Bonnaroo on a sidewalk... What's worse is that these people (who are mostly unemployed--as I am), possess absolutely no distinct clue as to what EXACTLY they're protesting. There is no common goal. None.  At all. Sure, I too am sick and tired, not only of these motherfuckin' snakes on this mothafuckin' plane, but of the goddamn corporate greed that stifles the livelihood of whatever generation myself and most of the "protesters" belong to. But seriously, this shit is just freakin' embarrassing...   To the OWS protesters, a piece of advice:  (1) take a few minutes, put down the djembe drum, (2) whip out the trusty ol' iPhone and (3) research what the hell it is you think you're so pissed off about. Okay, okay--maybe that was unfair. You're probably not rockin' out in the drum circle. Hopefully. If this is the case, take a minute from texting your buddies about how cool you are, then just follow step #3. Who knows what might come of it.
