Smile 42 Days With Occupy Dallas

I just spent the last 42 days with the Occupy Dallas movement.

Wow what an experience !

A bit of my belief in humanity has been restored.

And I have a small amount of hope that the future may be better.

We both win on this Rich since it proves my theory about who the people were that were occupying. I've been working my ass off to support my family and pay taxes for 37 of the last 42 days.

How were you able to get all of that time off from work?

If thousands of people spend 30+ days together not working what do you think the common denominator is?

I'm trying to make a presence at OWS, but can't seem to squeeze it in around my 55-hour workweek. Any scheduling advice, Rich?

Rich ,what was some of the highlights ? I was always wondering what I could do for the cause . Im glad for your commitment to what may become one of the biggest turning points on the way Govt and the business sector conducts business on our behalf.It shows money is the center point of Govt and people who are standing up now have a first hand account of how these changes in policy and regulations effect peoples lives.The people who understand what is at stake can see the corrupt system for what it is and to do nothing about it would be only worse for the future .

Either the taxpayer or Mommy and Daddy are supporting them.

Best thing you could do for the cause is get a job and pay taxes. That way lazy mofos can life off of you while they sleaze around in public parks and whine about 'sticking it to the man.'

Your theory on this mess is that since people arent at jobs working theyve decided to go out in public and carry a sign saying Im out of work so I can make my point known that Im mad about being out of a job,Your serious?The channel changer on your remote gives you some direction on were to start challenging your ideas of insight into these problems .....

I provided you my theory.

You don't like it? That's fine.

Let's hear your theory about how these folks are able to support themselves whilst living in a park beating rums and making ugly faces at evil bankers.

Here's some insight about our problems, people are working their ass's off to pay for a small group that does not want work.

Pretty simple if you ask me, I could easily get on the public tit but my feeling of self worth prohibits that.
