    I’m so happy to see that the churches have opened their doors and hearts to “the oppressed” in their midst–these wealthy trust-funders and other assorted hanger-on who desperately need some kind of mission for their lives. D’ya suppose they’ll find it at church??

What horrendous time and talent is getting wasted by these folks who just need to rail against something big and don’t have a clear message or solution to anything. They joined up with this movement out of a narcissistic, meglomaniacial sense that they’re “making history.”

    The 99% of us are working, paying taxes, volunteering and supporting our communities. The 1% here, are whining that it’s not fair–life is hard, and they’re entitled to a life of guaranteed ease and abundance because everyone has told them they’re just so darn Special!
