Take two minutes to watch this video, perfectly sums up the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Occupy Wall Street Protester Wants College Paid For Because That’s What He Wants — NRO
ZIP | October 12, 2011 1:54 pm
Pretty much sums it up
Can you spell deadbeat ?
Whenever I hear a college student interviewed today, I cringe when I hear them speak. They spend all this money on tuition and they sound like complete idiots.
Just keep interviewing that smerlly OWS mob, MSM. By the time the November 2012 election rolls around even Pee Wee Herman could eat Obama.
Keep ooon drinking that kool-aid…
Sure, let the taxpayers front the bill for your “whatever” studies phd, that you’ll never use.
Maybe, just maybe, there would be less out of work college kids, if those kids got a degree in something other than sociology, political science and psychology. Maybe in skilled labor. Employers aren’t looking for a PhD in bullshit.
OsamaHusseinIslamObama 2012′ (WTF)
(the terrorist-Uighur-ACORN-media choice)
-It’s never too early to campaign-
What’s scary is that this idiot and more like him have the right to vote. BE AFFRAID. Drones coming to a state near you.
….uh…I’m not sure…why I’m here…I, uh…just think…
PAY FOR MY EDUCATION!!!
This is our best and brightest? He’s about as articulate as most of them.
What a stupid little turd! And exactly what will he study in college? Political Science? And voila, a new Democrat politician.
That is assuming he’s not too stupid even for a liberal college.
F-that paid tuition, I want free beer and a neighborhood full of good looking nymphomaniacs. See we can all have huge unrealistic aspirations.
This from Liberal/Socialist professors teaching our young in these partisian colleges. They only hear one side of the idea on how you can make it in America. The wrong side. Hell, I couldn’t afford to go to college full time so I went at night and paid for it has I went. What the hell is wrong with that. It took me a little longer but I didn’t have a hand out for assisants and I didnt’ have a hugh bill waiting for me to pay either.
These young people have no drive or imagination today. Their led like sheep to whatever sounds like a free ride.
You can bet he’s never had a job or paid a cent in taxes.
I, I, I. Me, me, me. I want, I want, I want. Gimme, gimme, gimme.
Typical lib, never mentally matured beyond four years old.
2 minutes of fail…the new 15 minutes of fame.
Remind of all the dots on Jay Leno’s “Jaywalk” clips when he asked college grads simple history questions and they never get the right answers –
This is the idol/survival crowd – everything needs to be handed to them.
Some soldiers were questioning him, saying, “And what about us, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Do not take money from anyone by force, or accuse anyone falsely, and be content with your wages.”
“2 minutes of fail…the new 15 minutes of fame.”
Just because you opened your lips does not make your opinion valid. Unfortunately children are being taught exactly that in the schools, starting in preschool.
“No, Johnny, that is a circle, but you are entitled to believe it is a triangle instead. It’s good that you had an opinion! Very good Johnny!”
Dope and Mange.
Common folks. He did wonderfully.
Now give him his trophy with the “#1″ graphic and a gender-neutral ribbon.
I loved the interviewer – great tone and questions – and kept pressing but calmly.
The kid at about 1:40 or so slips a bit and his facial expression shows panic – as in, “Stop asking me these questions and go away! Okay, okay, I’m an idiot” Sadly, the idiot decides to plunge headfirst into more idiocy, and he knew it.
So I would have asked a couple more questions. 1) Did you actually get an education? 2) You clearly have decided to pass up shame, haven’t you, because a moment ago (at 1:40) I thought you might own up to the fact that you know your position is pure unadulterated bullshit and you have no education on these matters.
Don’t lie kid.Your only there for the chance at some free drugs and a hippie chick.
I want to be 50 pounds lighter.
It ain’t gonna happen unless I go on a diet!
These protesters are clueless dumb a$$es.
It’s the gimme generation.
Watching this little jackass reminded me of something. Oh yeah. When my kids were about 3 years old and had long lists of “it’s all about me” desires. Happily, with some encouragement from hubby and me, they grew up and smelled the coffee. Looks like this twit’s parents reared a spoiled brat, and unfortunately his entitlement mentality is no doubt being reinforced at that college he doesn’t want to pay for.
The next generation WONDERFUL – they are soooo brilliant or should I say brainless.
The kid needs a teleprompter just like the…..ooops!
I hope he`s paying his parents back every dime they spent on his wasted education…emphasis on the wasted.
Kids like this should be pitied, if they were not working so hard to screw up our country. You can see the sad ignorance glazing over his eyes like a dying, defeated animal being put to sleep at the local dog pound.
Do liberals consider the amount of damage they are doing to our next generation by filling their impressionable minds with foolish ideas and impossible solutions to important problems.
Teach your children honor, respect and self-reliance. They will thank you for it.

I loved the interviewer – great tone and questions – and kept pressing but calmly.
Yeah, he summed it up when he asked, (paraphrase) “So you just basically made a Christmas list and put it on a sign?”
Kid says. “Yeah.”
Just wait until he finds out there’s no Santa!
Uh, er, I majored in, um, like, ya know, public speaking.
no comment due to a completely obvious conclusion where no doubt is left.
I got news for you kid…college isn’t going to help ;(
His momma and daddy must be proud of their little basement-dweller…
Yes he wants his education paid for so he can get a degree and then go to work for a big corporation in a high paying job right….but then it will be OK if he makes the big money at the big corporation right ?
He looks like a totaly little dweeb with his pea sized brain no hope of recovery for his stupidity
Ignorance can be cured, stupidity is terminal. I suspect that somewhere down the road this poor kid is going to die an idiot.
October 12, 2011 at 2:54 pm
Pretty sure that one’s not looking for a chick.
This is what our best and bravest are out defending—-I don’t think so. God forbid there was ever a national defense crisis and we needed all hands on deck—-WTF. They would all scatter and leave the country.
Our education system is what produced the Obama and Clinton machines and this little punk….this must end. Get a candidate to disband this DOE. Get rid all of tenure
Fire all these so called College Professors, they are professors of jealousy, resentment- purveyors of lies and distortion and replace them with credible War Veterans with real life experience, honor and dignity
F-in little leach
“Look, I had an hour between my Ceramic Pottery History class and my Masturbating to The Writings of Margaret Sanger class, so I thought I’d grab an ice coffee and come down to cover for someone that needed to run and squat behind the dumpster, or shag a babe under a tree they’ve been eyeballing for the last week. Just doin’ my part for the cause, comrade.”
I hope his daddy gave him the toe of the boot right down the front steps becuase his parents are conservatives who ended up with a granola,munching,yogert slurping,pissiepants pathetic little tree hugger sissiepod son
I refer to them as MOWS(morons on wall st) and COWS(communists on wall st).
Is that a Burberry scarf that kid, who is begging for money, has tied around his neck?
The lunatic fringe of 1960′s were backed by some of the most powerful, wealthy NGO foundations and companies in the country.
They run the country and have been running it for decades. This old guard, hard left is reaching retirement age. They are the ones who chose Obama, an otherwise useless, obscure community organizer. In 11 short years, they rammed him through the Illinois state senate, onto the US senate and then into the presidency.
This new lunatic fringe, sipping their $5 fair trade lattes, with their “Transgender Liberation Theory” and “Chicano/Latino Studies” degrees, are funded, organized and led by ACORN, Bill Ayres, Van Jones and most of all, George Soros: The goal is to have them running the country in 20 years
So far, the only major accomplishment of the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters is that they have finally put an end to their previous initiative, “Occupy Our Mothers’ Basements.”
Lisa Fithian, the anarchist who is organizing #OccupyWallSt “direct actions” with unions and Democrats across the country, addressed several hundred evidently brainwashed activists at their “General Assembly” in Chicago on October 10, 2011.
She described the coordination between “community-based organizations” and unions across the country in a “fall campaign,” and described the racial speech codes that #Occupy enforces at its meetings.
Fithian actually called for white men to speak first at meetings, in order to create a racial solidarity that can unite all of #Occupy’s disparate groups. [Update: It was apparently unclear, even to the activists, whether Fithian used the pronoun "they" to refer to white men, or to everyone else.]
The cult-like crowd repeated almost every word.
The “they” is not young white men, but “the most impacted, undocumented, poor people, students in debt” They are the “they’ who get the mike first.
The truly just solution to his tuition debt would be for the college to refund his money for scrambling his brains.
I want this young man to paint my house. Just putting it out there, it’s just what I want and that’s what it’s about.
I want this little turd to dig up a tree on my front lawn, chop it into small pieces, take it to the dump and then acid clean my garage floor and when it’s dry, paint it.
After that, he can paint my living room and clean my pool, then install some new doors I just purchased. Then I want him to clean all the grout in my kitchen, with a toothbrush and detail my car.
Wow, it’s so nice just being able to demand what you want…………
Last time I checked my W-2, “The Government” is, actually, paying his tuition (Pell Grants, guaranteed loans). I agree with other comments–a random degree means nothing. I have an MBA which matters squat without my years of EXPERIENCE. Unfortunately, this individual is a product of his parents and what our society. While he is the one mindlessly proclaiming his Christmas Wish List in a squalid park with national attention, we all bear some blame for allowing our fellow citizens to arrive at these foolish and selfish conclusions. I’m gravely concerned for my own children–not that they’ll wind up like these dreks, but that they’ll have to support them in addition to their own families. Why can’t we just hack off California and give it to them?
Aw crap… I meant to type, “Unfortunately, this individual is a product of his parents and what our society has allowed to exist as ‘mature’ and ‘adult.’”
Check out the lady in the background standing next to the other lady with the t-shirt that says, “Fighting for low income New Yorkers”. She has on her $20 dollar ball cap, a gold chain, and what appears to be an iphone (or some other “not free” smart phone). Quit buying expensive stuff you don’t need and save/invest some of that money. It’s like poor people who use all their money on booze and cigarettes. You DON’T have to have a cell phone, I remember getting along fine without one for MANY years. Instead of sitting out there all day protesting, get off your butt and keep looking for a job if you were even looking to begin with! Those people are lazy, misguided, ignorant, mislead and all around a waste of oxygen, the sad thing is they are getting plenty of media coverage and they don’t even know what they want or how to get a point across!
I love the smell of deadbeats in the morning.
The more I hear these idiot protesters, the more proud I am of my parents. I had what I needed growing up, and a few things I wanted, but not much. I grew up in a very modest house, less than 1000 sq ft and had one brother. We took family vacations each year, always drove and camped. The only time I can remember staying in a motel was in New Orleans where the campground was under a foot of water. We still went to a park to make dinner.
What I learned was live within your means, don’t go into debt, save and invest. I carried that forward. I went to a decent college that was cheap, graduated and got a job. I made several assumptions as I went out of my own. I would never have a pension, never get Social Security and never have any inheritance. So I always saved, even if it was only $1 a paycheck, I still tucked it away, no matter how difficult it was. I didn’t try to finance my life on a credit card.
Fast forward 5 years later, I’m in a different state, moved there to make a better living. While many others my age were buying houses and getting “gifts” from their parents for the down payment, I brought bologna sandwiches to work and ate rice and beans many nights. Moved into the house with money to spare for bedroom furniture as I had been sleeping on air mattress for 5 years.
As my income grew, I tried living a more lavish lifestyle, but that didn’t last long. It didn’t make me happy. I lived well below my means, saved, invested, and most importantly, never paid retail. I live a full life, I travel and love going to my local theme parks in central Florida. But I drive a 16 year old truck, buy my clothes at outlet stores (for a fraction of the retail price) and my grocery bill is less than $100 a month. How? I know how to cook and shop. Local produce stands and I never eat a meal out of a box or can. Just takes a little more effort than opening a box. Many people say they don’t have time, I don’t either on many occasions, but I make the time.
I paid off my house a few years ago, and my fiance’s house. In another year, I’ll be married, then retiring at age 47.
So what’s the gist of this? I did it all myself. No government help, not expecting others to pay for things I want, I went out and got it myself. I’ve never have anything given to me and don’t expect it. Unlike the protesters. They want want want. The only thing they don’t want is to earn it.
Thanks Mom & Dad.
What an imbecile… most of the working Americans paid for their own college or paid for their kids to go out of their own pockets… why does he think anyone OWES him anything? Guess he’s listened to the socialists and deadbeats… 99%?? hardly. he’s just another of the 45% that does nothing, pays no taxes and probably gets paid to be that way. We need to go to a consumption tax to ensure that everyone pays their part. These jackasses need to find something productive to do instead of promoting socialism and putting their deadbeat lifestyles in our faces in my humble opinion.
Now we know what the schools mean when they talk about the importance of s0-called “critical thinking” over learning facts for standardized tests. This young man looks stupid trying to be the critical thinker without having a clue about the facts. And that’s what the schools are up to. To give him a slight break here, he’s probably there just to meet chicks who will like his sign.
It’s waste products like this that convince me that universities have become a criminal enterprise, this may have been an ok kid till they did bad things to his little brain. Also there really must be a change in who’s allowed to vote,like pass a simple test or prove your IQ is larger than your shoe size, something needs to change because damaged people like this should never be allowed to vote or live for that matter.
Get a job Idiot! It is clear that your parents FAILED!
Our nation would be far stronger if college tuition was paid for by the government.
We always have enough money for bailouts, wars and tax cuts.
But never enough to help the middle and lower classes.
BTW the interviewer lied
The Effective corporate tax rate is amoungst the lowest in the world and
the rich do NOT pay 40 % of all taxes.
Include SS, FICA, sales tax, real estate taxes, local taxes, state taxes, gas tax, cigarrette and alcohol taxes, etc etc etc.
The interviewer was a liar.
