The Perpetually Ungrateful...

Protesting Capitalism

These ''oh so enlightened'' little trust-fund babies and perennial college students--as well as the perpetually aggrieved--will be in full throat, denouncing capitalism while talking on cell-phones and wearing their Bierkenstocks.

They'll have their Jansport back-packs, ipods, and all the other trappings of capitalism and materialism, in the safety and comfort of a Western democracy, where previous generations gave their lives--not only for the right of these feckless, ''fine young cannibals'' to protest--but also built a society of commerce, industry, education, health care, and a representative democratic political system.

Honestly, who in their right mind could be against that? And why?

How bloody convenient and self-righteous it is to be so ''outraged'' at one's good fortune and happenstance in life and how insane, as well, that you would form a mob to shout to the world you hate the system that has given you so much.

Would anyone of these people trade places with some North Korean or maybe give up the current level of comfort they have to live differently in some other part of the world?

We were all like these idiots at one time--then we grew up.

J'Mac, one way to test that theory is to take a pair of binoculars to Miami Beach and scan the shore for emigrants fleeing on leaky, make-shift rafts.

Please notate the date and number of poor trust-fundees you see on their way to glorious liberation in Cuba.

My superior psychic powers are tingling and I foresee that you will count absolutely zero emigrants.
You won't even have to sharpen your pencil.

Depending on how many drowned, you may, however, see some Haitian or Cuban refugees washing ashore.

It's easy being a Bolshevik in safe assurance one will not have to actually live like a Bolshevik. It's coolio, you know. But stupid.
But aren't those synonyms for the leftwing these days -- "stupid" and "retarded"?

Yup,you're right praireison. Just like back in the early 70's it was fun to say stuff like "Off the Pigs'' until somebody actually started shooting police officers and suddenly all those ''revolutionaries'' headed back to Westchester,Knob Hill or Hollywood. J'Mac.
