On Tuesday afternoon, CNN ran a sympathetic segment highlighting the "rules and regulations" of Occupy D.C. -- including interviews with activists who want a national health care system. Anchor Brooke Baldwin held up the application for prospective occupiers, noting the organization involved.

They found a few educated idiots in the whole group and not near as bright as their so called resume they tell us reflects. Do these people live in a bubble? The environmentalist should go occupy China since they do not have an EPA to push their businesses around and is by the way putting more junk in the air than any power plant here. See where she will be sleeping then when she holds up her views against that government. The stupidity of the OWS is really driving me nuts. Not logical what so ever.Reply by OWS_supporter (aka the blogger)
Educated idiots, eh? Well, they are smart enough to know that our economy has been busted by Wall Street criminals, who have sold toxic derivatives to the world, then bet their clients would lose money. Their bets were in the form of unregulated credit default swaps adding up to about $500 Trillion. Those who turned out to be on the losing side of the CDSs begged to be bailed out and Congress obliged them with our taxpayer money, so far to the tune of $14 to 24 Trillion. Because $24 Trillion is a lot smaller than $500 Trillion, the worst is yet to come. If it had been Chinese banks that had done this, all of the CEOs would have been hung by now. Do you remember the savings and loan crisis? Over 1000 CEOs went to prison then. Today's crisis is 70 times worse, yet not a single CEO has been indicted. Too big to jail. I don't know what your business is, but unless you are part of the 1% profiting from this crisis, your revenues are likely falling because the 99% can no longer afford to buy your product or services. If you are not in the top 1%, these "educated idiots" are out there to help YOU.
