Occupy Wall Street had a viable message at the start-up of their campaign, though their complaints should have focused more on 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, where the feeders off Wall Street fatten their political wallets. Anyone who thinks that Barack Obama (and yes, past presidents did as well) is not gorging off the Wall Street money trough, is greatly mistaken. It’s a matter of supply and demand. Obama is as guilty as anyone. He makes public speeches condemning Wall Street, but that’s double-speak from two sides of the mouth. As usual, people believe him.
Meanwhile, contrary to the past demonstrations of the Tea Party — to whom the news media likes to compare — Occupy Wall Street has sadly attracted the dregs of America, giving everyone and anyone who has nothing better to do than degrade their country a platform to create chaos, without presenting a solution to whatever problems they are complaining about.
It’s no surprise that the media of late has backed off from any more parallels, because the OCW has evolved into a national tragedy and an embarrassment for anyone who supports them.
Nevertheless, the president, not surprisingly, gave his support to the entire movement, which means he must find no issue with people defecating on the American flag, crapping on police cars, having sex in the open, raping women, smoking dope, carrying “Hate America” and other signs that support Communism, Socialism and anarchy in general. That, plus sit-ins and prolonged hate demonstrations that have cost small businesses in the immediate areas a fortune. Add, the tons of garbage and litter left for the cities to clean in their wake.
More than five thousand people have been arrested by police for disorderly conduct alone. Don’t tell me it’s the cops’ fault, please. That’s an insult to the men and women in blue that are out there with no other job than to protect you and me, and to enforce laws. It’s not their choice, it’s their duty.
Don’t forget, the actions of these demonstrators are pre-calculated and planned in the private homes of agitators hired to create the chaos. The bonds and legal fees for those arrested are taken care of by the organizers with unlimited funding. I’ve worked urban riots. I know the scenario. Some pundits have speculated one source as George Soros. But no one will really ever know.
Comparable to the Tea Party? Please.
While these folks are complaining about the fat cats in corporateAmerica and unanimously denounce capitalism (upon which our great country was established), those same hypocrites are partaking of the corporate world on a daily basis without blinking an eye. Yes, they live and breathe corporateAmerica, from the clothes they wear and the cell phones they use, the airlines they fly and the food they eat. Think Verizon, AT&T, Samsung, Ford, Chrysler, Visio, Dell, TacoBell, McDonalds, Gucci, Nikes, Posturepedic, Stouffers, Marlboro and Coors Light for starters.
Who do they think they are, denouncing corporateAmerica? The jobs their parents held in order to raise them to adulthood were mostly at the behest of corporate America.
These are the freeloaders who seek to be coddled by the taxpayer, to be provided the essentials of life for free; living quarters, food, education, health care, and plenty of money for drugs, sex and legal defense.
Sadly, these same folks are aligned within the Hollywood elite, by rich stars like Sean Penn, Barbra Streisand, Susan Sarandon, George Clooney, etc., the majority of whom are also into bashing capitalism in America, without mentioning one word about the huge wealth they’ve gained via Warner Brothers, MGM, Dreamworks, AMC and Regal Cinema, Orville Redenbacher and United Airlines, not to mention the corporations that manufacture film cameras, make-up products and every piece of sound equipment that is used in making movies, and more.
Knowing movie stars and entertainment moguls are among the top one percent, why doesn’t OCW demonstrate on Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills?
It’s hard to imagine how our men and women in uniform, deployed to hell-holes around the world in defense of all Americans, have felt watching swarms of moochers complain, shout and carry signs about hating America, while their commander-in-chief basically gave them all the go-ahead.
I have no sympathy or respect for OCW participants, because their message was lost shortly after they began breaking laws and denouncing the country I love. We can all voice our objections to corruption in politics and demand justice without becoming part of the problem, instead of the solution.

Thirty years of law enforcement in Miami, Florida, including sixteen years working homicide, gives Marshall Frank a huge reservoir from which to draw insights into the problems facing America today. After retiring from the Miami-Dade P.D. in 1990, Frank went on to become a writer, now with eight published books, five fiction and three non-fiction. His book “Militant Islam In America” was published after an exhaustive research study about the inroads that radicals are making within the borders of the U.S. He is currently working on a non-fiction book about the abominable criminal justice system.
