Today marks the one-year anniversary of the start of the Occupy movement. As it turns out, sitting around, tweeting, singing songs, and making signs did not help to balance out America’s wealth distribution. But it did help to show how lazy, bored, spoiled, and selfish this nation can be. It showed that people would rather cry about being poor and blame the rich instead of bettering themselves.
Meet the desensitized generation of followers, all hype and no struggle. If they would occupy a second job, a skill that helps people, a soup kitchen, or a community college, I bet they wouldn’t have time to march the streets and throw tantrums like children who don’t get their way.
Occupying a road or place of business does nothing. This is coming from someone who is not rich, grew up in a family on welfare, spent almost 3 years homeless, and voted Obama in the 2008 election. Dear America’s 99%, be appreciative and happy for what you have, how privileged you are. The world is jam-packed with real problems, you’re not starving to death or living in fear of air raids.
Over the last couple months I have gone a little crazy with the cheesewiz. There’s almost no ‘magic’ left in web development, I know exactly how and why these things works.
Just when you think you know it all, you find a way to make it better. In the shower at the gym I realized that I should really be making my Ajax writes into a function, passing the table, field, and arguments to a general php file. Build from the bottom up, just like any physical construction. Lowest common denominator as my boss would say.
