Who Should Attend the Occupy Rallies?

A friend on Twitter asked if I was attending the gathering in Minneapolis, this Friday. I replied that my work schedule would make it prohibitive for me to spend any amount of time there, even though I plan to make an appearance. That made me think, who should be spending time at these rallies? Here's what I come up with...

  • Students: This is your future we're talking about here. If Wall Street fat cats are allowed to continue in this manner, your college degree will be wasted on a career flipping burgers, or working as a greeter at Wal-Mart.
  • The unemployed: Wall Street greed is one of the primary reasons you're in the predicament you're in.
  • Seniors: Don't let this crop of GOP candidates sell you on the bullshit notion that your Social Security and Medicare are safe from their desire to slash the safety net, in order to protect these millionaires. They will kick you to the curb, and not lose a minute of sleep doing so.
