Loonies protesting on Wall Street compare their demonstration to 'Arab Spring'

New York's finest have their hands full with these crazies, who are apparently running out into the middle of traffic and blocking sidewalks because...

Well, that part is not exactly clear. They say they are protesting "inequality" which I guess means they don't like that some people are making more money than they are. Face it guys; living in your mama's basement, stoned out and watching cartoons is not the way to earn a million bucks. Besides, Wall Street is not the place you should be protesting. Try the White House where your former hero is in bed with Wall Street capitalists, Silicon Valley hot shots, and big labor honchos.

And they seem to have trouble figuring out that they are in the United States, not some third world autocracy:

According to statements on the website, the movement, an offshoot of online magazine AdBusters, is angered by what it calls the principle of "profit over and above all else," which it says has dominated not only America's economic policies, but also the way in which Americans view culture and humanity.

Posts on the website compare the group's efforts to those used in pro-democracy movements across the Middle East, dubbed the Arab Spring.

"On the 17th of September, we want to see 20,000 people to flood into lower Manhattan, set up beds, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months," one statement says. "Like our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, we plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in America. We also encourage the use of nonviolence to achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants."

As has become the norm of such protests, this movement has been fueled by social media fire, with supporters taking to Twitter under the hash tag #occupywallstreet. The major hacking group Anonymous has also thrown in its support, live streaming the day's events.

I'd tell the kids to get a job but Obama has made sure that isn't possible. The point is, these protestors are very ANGRY and they want everyone to know how ANGRY they are.

They should try soiling their diapers. At least that way, someone would pay attention to them.
