In every interview that is done on television, and on just about every discussion held on talk radio, the forces of Occupy Wall Street were allowed to perpetuate an idea that could not be more false. Yet they repeat it with fervor, constantly trying to brainwash any who will listen as to its reality. They don't want to admit what I'm about to state, but it must be said.
Income "inequality" is a myth of hysterical proportion.
There, that felt good.
Like tiny Miss Virginia in the movie Miracle on 34th Street, the Occupy forces have a very rough time believing reality. Yet the truth is all around them.
The problem is, they do not wish to admit basic truths. Truths like:
1. No one is guaranteed anything in this life.
2. Success comes through hard work.
3. The world is largely unfair.
4. America is the most fair/advantageous economic laboratory on the planet.
If they understood these basic concepts they would cease whining about the myth of "income inequality" and get their fannies back to their homes and begin efforts to reinvent, create, produce, and multiply (ideas.)
The truth is most of Occupy Wall Street is so riddled with absolute hypocrisy that even when CNN confronts an occupier using an Apple Computer at the Occupy location, the occupier merely smiles and says, "well no one is perfect."
Even so the talking point of "income inequality" has outlasted most of the hypocrisy and has begun to be a point of discussion in "serious media" as a "benefit" of the silly occupy movement.
Yet here's the certainty, no one is, nor should be guaranteed an income of any kind. Not without hard work, not without struggle, initiative, extra effort, and accomplishment. Even then that mindset of "results" should be evident in the everyday labor that is being performed.
The problem with Occupy is that it largely sees itself as victims, instead of decision makers. They view themselves as the have-nots, as opposed to those-that-do-not-have... yet. They stare in the mirror each morning examining life as an employee instead of as an entrepreneur. They lack motivation. They lack confidence. They lack direction. And they lack discernment.
They claim to be part of the 99%, when in reality almost no one in America is truly part of the 99% of the world's poorest.
And they are ungrateful, to their creator, to their fellow man, to the public servants that allow them the cover to gather, and to a nation which continues to insist upon them having the right to speak freely, even when that freedom has been grossly abused.
