The recent Occupy protests perplex me.
I recently noticed a banner in downtown Victoria proclaiming the “people’s protest.”
I have nothing to protest. I am not one of those “people.”
I presume my upbringing was different from those in the square. I prefer to make my own way and my own money; I am doing that well, if I do say so myself.
I don’t want any bankers to give me their “enormous” profits. They can earn it and spend it wherever they like and assist our consumer-based economy.
In my opinion, these protesters are too busy hanging about while the rest of us make what we can of our lives.
If they don’t like the way their life is going, they should change it themselves, not protest that someone else should change.
They may want to start with a shower, a shave and a job interview.
