Idiots are easily manipulated. They are useful pawns, and that’s about it. Consider the stooges of the fledgling movement “Occupy Wall Street.” These useful idiots are clamoring for social justice, as if they don’t have enough of that already.

From what I can tell, the softheaded numskulls of Occupy Wall Street want investment bankers to give up their wealth, as in “spread the wealth around.” They are blaming Wall Street for the sad state of our economic malaise and for all the other problems of the world.

Poster boy for the morbidly obese and natural leader of the hygiene-challenged, uber-lefty America-haters, Michael Moore spoke out in favor of Occupy Wall Street. What he didn’t tell the crowd of useful idiots and what they are too stupid to grasp is that he is one of the wealthy individuals whom he and they supposedly despise. I would gladly pay for a first-class, one-way ticket for Mr. Moore to the socialist or Marxist country of his choosing if he promises to stay there.

Occupy Wall Street is nothing more than anti-American socialism on parade.

Yes, people, especially young people, have a right to be angry, and the smart ones are focusing their anger on President Obama, Rep. Barney Frank, former Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, and other anti-free-market socialists. They are the ones who have wrecked the economy.

The president is losing the support of educated young people in droves. Now that reality has set in and they can’t find good jobs, are struggling to pay back student loans and have moved back into their parents’ basements, the enthusiasm for “hope and change” fantasy has taken a well-deserved hit.

Of course, the uninspired, uneducated, unskilled and stoned have been conditioned for generations to expect something for nothing. They will always be in the tank of the left-wing movement - and they will always be unmotivated and poor and will continue to blame others for their condition. Instead of busting their humps working two or three jobs, they have time to protest on Wall Street. Fascinating.

Our economy hit the skids in large part because of Democrats’ refusal to provide fundamental oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Toss in massive government borrowing and spending, untold new anti-free-market regulations, and you get a sputtering economy. Duh.

And this is the fault of Wall Street bankers, many of whom also have lost good jobs? Only a useful idiot could arrive at that conclusion. The way out of this economic quicksand is to reverse course by tossing out the socialists and Marxists and electing people who understand what it takes to make an economy vibrant and strong.

America has embraced big government for decades. Embracing Fedzilla’s anti-free-market principles has been and will continue to be a job killer. It is the uneducated and unskilled who are feeling the most pain.

Smart people quietly chuckle at the antics of goons like Michael Moore and Roseanne Barr. Smart people know that Mr. Moore and Miss Barr represent a fringe movement of people who are poor because they have made a lifetime of poor choices. Expecting others to remedy that by surrendering their wealth is a fool’s game. It’s also anti-American and downright anti-human.

Occupy Wall Street is empty-headed. Stinky hippies, generational slaves to Fedzilla and the transparent entitled are the problem, not the solution.
