Ah, Youth

I'm trying to remember, as I read about the youngsters who intend to "occupy" Wall Street, but aren't really sure why, if I was as stupid back then as they come across.

If this is the mission of those who seek ... something ... from the investment community, it and they are in big trouble:

"On Saturday thousands of us will occupy Wall Street. We will wave our signs, unfurl our banners, beat our drums, chant our slogans … and then we'll get down to business and hold several people's assemblies to decide what our 'one demand' will be."

That may be the dumbest thing I've ever read.

Thousands of mindless youth are going to get together in the streets of New York - with riot police pummeling the crap out of them the whole time they're there - and this moron thinks that those mindless youth are going to proceed to make a decision as to what they want from Wall Street?  Before or after they lapse into unconsciousness?

I'm thinking maybe the kids need to go back to their video games and quit embarrassing their parents with such idiocy.
