IHMO – A non-medical diagnosis of OWS protestors

In an earlier post, I mentioned that the OWS movement put out their Declaration of New York City online for the entire world to read. Well, guess what, I read it. (And using their childish logic, I should sue them for the three minutes of my life I wasted doing so.)

Their “symptoms” are as follows:

  1. They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.
  2. They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.
  3. They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.
  4. They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.
  5. They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide these practices.
  6. They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.
  7. They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
  8. They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.
  9. They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.
  10. They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.
  11. They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
  12. They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.
  13. They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.
  14. They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.
  15. They have donated large sums of money to politicians, who are responsible for regulating them.
  16. They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.
  17. They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives or provide relief in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantial profit.
  18. They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
  19. They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.
  20. They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.
  21. They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.
  22. They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.
  23. They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts.*

Now, read between the lines. What are the common issues you see?

  • Healthcare (see #6 – implied; 8, 10, and 17)
  • Higher pay (see #6 and 8)
  • Green energy/Environmentalism (see #16 and 18)
  • Outsourcing/Eliminating Jobs (see #6 and 8)
  • Free education (see #7)
  • Inequality/Discrimination (see #3)
  • Excessive military use/intervention (see #12, 20, and 23)
  • Implementing a police state (see #12 and 19)
  • Murder/Torture of civilians/prisoners (see #20 and 22)
  • Economic Catastrophes/Bailouts (see #1 ,2, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 18, 19)
  • Protected Status of Businesses (see #2, 9, 10, 14, 15)

So, exactly which side of the political spectrum does this represent? Despite their claims to the contrary, this is an extreme left-leaning agenda, which was highlighted in the poll put out by the Democratic pollster, Doug Schoen.

Now, the question is what is the point? What do they hope to accomplish?

Well, basically nothing since all of these ideas have been implemented (a large number have been done or expanded on by Obama).

The “prescription” for each “symptom” —

It is my honest, non-medical, opinion, the OWS protestors are nothing more than attention-whores looking for their next “john.”

    You’re so stupid, you posted a link that completely contradicts your bitch session. You right-wingers are idiots and do nothing but complain.

      You’re so eloquent. Obviously, you’re a liberal since only one link — in your mind — contradicts the supposed “bitch” session that I am having and you are completely hung up on that.

      Do you understand the concept of context clues? What about the fact that I am making a point about the lunacy of these people?

      Nah — we wouldn’t want to focus on any of that — it would mess up your kool-aid colored view of the world.

    Very entertaining (and well-researched) read. How they can publish some of that stuff and still hope to be taken seriously is beyond me. Poisoning the food supply? Covering up oil spills? Yeesh!
