This statement from the front page of the Occupy Wall Street web tells you all you need to know about just how ignorant these feral children are when it comes to their so-called “movement.”
But wait there’s more!
On Monday, our loveable liberal mayor Thomas “Mumbles” Menino (D-Boston) told the “Occupy Boston” group that they could continue to deface Dewey Square and defecate in public, but he drew the line at the The Rose F. Kennedy Greenway.
Last night America lost a great icon with the passing of Steve Jobs. As a young worker in the 70’s, Jobs and Woz represented a fresh new vision of what work could be.
Growing up, I watched my father toil for decades marching off to work at 7:00 AM in a suit, tie, and starched shirt, coming home at 5:30 PM for dinner, and then breaking out his briefcase and tackling “paperwork” until I went to bed.
I had zero interest in living a life like his.
I began my career in 1976, the same year Steve Jobs started building computers in his garage. Although Data Terminal Systems (my first employer) was no Apple, the founder shared Job's vision that work should be about more than punching a clock.
Within a few months in “business” I discovered a wonderful and rewarding life that bore no resemblance to my father’s daily toil. My career and I both grew up in the Steve Jobs era. We had tons of fun, made countless friends, created wonderful products, and made good money along the way.
Steve Jobs proved that capitalism could be fun, cool, and good for society!
"The American Jobs Act is a win-win for the American people. Congress can choose to put students ahead of political gridlock by supporting a bill that puts Americans back to work, modernizes our schools, and puts educators in classrooms instead of on the unemployment lines."

As Obama waxes on about how a few short term tax credits will create jobs while pitching the so-called Buffet Rule (which is nothing more than a massive tax increase on the private capital that built this country), unemployment soars and America slips as a world economic power.
Regarding Lack of Qualified Job Applicants in 2013…
The young people’s participation rate in the work force is going down.
We asked small business owners what the problem was and for a huge number -- 20% of the owners, it was [young job applicants] appearance, attitude, they didn’t know how to dress, too many rings in their nose, this sort of thing.
And for a worker who has to meet with customers or work in a team, those are very important things.
