Understanding the Occupy Whatever Movement (11/22/11)

Posted: Updated:

I'll tell you something I'd really like to get behind: It's that Occupy Wall Street, Portland Oakland, and other places movement.  I'm one of the 99%, so count me in. 

Of course, first someone will have to explain it to me since they have never really made it clear what the goals are and what the end game is.  But as soon as they can articulate a tangible plan and anticipated outcome from this, I'm in. 

That sleeping in tents stuff looks fun too. I'd do it too except I have a house, so….

Those Porta-Johns look pretty inviting. That was a great idea.  Me? Well, I've got a bathroom right inside my house that I mentioned earlier so I'll probably just use that. But if I ever come to your sleepover in the park, I'll be right there in line with you.

But let me be clear! As soon as I know why we're doing this I'll be there with you all day doing nothing and waiting for something to happen. Well, not all day. In fact, days are bad for me because I have a full-time job that kind of pays for the house and the indoor plumbing.

So good luck to you, Occupy Whatever. It looks fun, but I guess I'm just not a joiner.

I'm Bill Lamb…and I'm going home.
