On the Occupy Wall Street protestors…

What, exactly, are the contributions to society these protestors have made? How many jobs have they created? How many jobs have they held? Have they built any homes for people? Have they invented any life-saving drugs? Have they produced a drop of gasoline or a watt of electricity? Have they produced any food? Have they built stores? Corporations are nothing but businesses. And businesses are small, medium and large. Small, medium and large what? Small, medium and large collections of people! Productive citizens. Who make things, provide services, respond to the wants and needs and desires of other people. These protestors, who are actually few in number, have contributed nothing. They’re parasites. They’re pure, genuine parasites. Many of them are bored, trust-fund kids, obsessed with being something, being somebody. Meaningless lives, they want to matter.
