|Yep. The irony is palpable.|
Earlier today I opined on the Occupy Wall Street effort in a dismissive sort of way. I don't want to give the impression that ignoring them is a good idea. The Democrats ignored and tried to marginalize the Tea Party much to their own detriment.
I don't think the Occupy Wall Street effort will grow enough to pose a serious threat to anything conservatives want to achieve. But that doesn't mean the movement should be ignored. Marginalized - if necessary, counter demonstrated - if absolutely necessary, but observed - most definitely.
Counter demonstrations may become necessary, but that's so not yet. These people soon have to get back to the schooling their parents are paying for and forget about protesting having to repay their student loans. It's a loan - you have to repay it. No one is owed an education, or a job, or food or a home by anyone other than themselves and maybe their family. I'm not paying for your education unless you pay for my mortgage. Deal? I didn't think so.
Before I spend too much time on that tangent, let me stop myself there.
