Occupy Vancouver

Get ready Vancouver, the slacker revolution is preparing to start a permanent protest downtown in an effort to "take back Democracy". The organizers haven't made any demands for what they hope to accomplish, they're going to figure that out later. If I know anything about the Vancouver protest crowd, it shouldn't take long before they start demanding the government build them free houses. Minimum guaranteed incomes shouldn't be too far behind, where the government guarantees your income whether you work or not. The "steal from the rich to give to the lazy" agenda is generally the policy that emerges from these little gatherings, so I can spare you the suspense. Free houses and free money without having to work.

You'll probably also hear demands to shut down Alberta's oil patch, which is of course a massive source of tax revenue for the federal government. There will be demands for the government to spend more money and demands that will hinder Canadian economic output. That's what they mean when they say "let's take back democracy"; because democracy is great, unless the guy you don't like happens to win.


  1. I agree with everything you've written. Get out the beer and popcorn!

  2. The activists' main enemy seems to be capitalism,so let's shut everything down for a month and see how many of them survive.

    Unfortunately,most of them would have to steal from helpless people to survive their own helplessness.

    I have no problem with constructive criticism on anything,but the "occupy" clowns offer nothing,no alternatives,just the usual "shut 'em down" chants from the people who don't run things and don't have a clue as to how to run things.

    If these people were in charge we'd all starve to death,while they sit in circles and chant for Gaia to help.
