Heaven Help Us if this is What is Resonating

CNN wants Erick Erickson to admit that the Wall Street Protests are starting to resonate. 

I certainly hope not:

This young man can't even articulate why his education should be free other than someone else makes more money than he does.  He has no clue that we pay some of the highest corporate tax rates in the world.  He has not idea that the top 10% of tax payers already pay 67% of the bills.  He just knows that he wants something for nothing.  Just imagine if college were free in this country.  We already have free primary education, and the drop rates in some cities is over 50%.  When something is given to you, you rarely see the value in it.  Hard work is good for you, it builds character. 

These protests have very little to do with protecting the poor, it is about greed and wanting what some else has worked for. 

He should be fighting for people like her, instead of whining about himself.

If these people have no jobs and plenty of time on their hands, they should be out there volunteering to help other people. They could be getting some real work experience. They used to call it "getting off the streets." Occupy Whatever is putting a new spin on an old phrase.

Note: You might want to check your "her" link, above. It's acting strangely for me, but then again, it might just be blogger acting up again.
