Someone in the Chicago Board of Trade dropped leaflets on top of “Occupy Chicago” protesters Wednesday afternoon as they rallied alongside unions in the city’s financial district.
“We are Wall Street,” theleaflet said. “It is our job to make money.”
“Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt yourselves,” it continued. “What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We’re going to take yours.”
“Do you really think we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping?” the leaflet asked.
Right. You work at the Board of Trade because you’re ABOVE such things, after all. I mean, the reason you pledged a frat was so that you wouldn’t end up living life like the plebes do. Your parents played all that golf with the chancellor for a reason!
Fucking arrogant pricks. I’m sorry, but you know what? It is possible to be a rich person without being a TOTAL DILLHOLE. It is actually possible to go to your job, make your money, go home, and enjoy your life. America really wouldn’t hate you, if you did that. Not to the point that there’d be rallies outside your work place asking people to honk if they want you indicted.
What makes America hate you is shit like this, this epic whining that you have it so rough and how dare five guys with mowhawks bang drums. Not only do you want to make a giant pile of money to swim around in like Scrooge McDuck, but you want every single person in the world to love you, too. Guess what? It is a matter of physics. Eventually you have to stop jerking or you willbreak it off, man. It starts to look needy.
Nobody in any one of the dozens of Occupy outposts around the country is saying you, personally, Trader Joe, give me $50. What they’re saying is that the system rewards you and punishes them, and they would like to stop being fucked so hard constantly for the unpardonable sin of working every day. Doing trivial things. You know, like landscaping, or teaching third grade.
