Occupy: Animal Farm.

If you still think this movement isn’t run & kept alive by the most cynical of marxist, then you have not been paying attention. The LSM sure isn’t but some people are:

A key Occupy Wall Street leader and another protester who leads a double life as a businessman ditched fetid tents and church basements for rooms at a luxurious hotel that promises guests can “unleash [their] inner Gordon Gekko,” The Post has learned.

The $700-per-night W Hotel Downtown last week hosted both Peter Dutro, one of a select few OWS members on the powerful finance committee, and Brad Spitzer, a California-based analyst who not only secretly took part in protests during a week-long business trip but offered shelter to protesters in his swanky platinum-card room.

This is Animal Farm all over, man. Paraphrasing one of my favorite lines from that most illuminating tome of great wisdom, Mr. Orwell’s Animal Farm, I have to say that “All 99%ers are equal, but some of the 99%ers are more equal than others”. In fact, doesn’t look like there is much difference between those that are a lot more equal than the others and that 1% they are so angry at.

Don’t be fooled people. What we have here with this OWS movement isn’t anything new, noble, or good intended: it is the same kind of old time marxist and big nanny staters that brought us every one of the most miserable experiments of the last century. The plan, as usual, is for some of the most dishonest scumbags – following the footsteps of such greats as Lenin, Hitler, the Kims, Mao, Ho Chi Ming, and so on, if you allow me to make a comparison – to dislodge the current haves, using the masses as their blunt instrument, and then, when firmly ensconced at the top, they will resort to imprisoning, abusing, and killing anyone in the masses that wises up to what happened. Misery for all.

Some more perspective

One of the arguments that the left pushes in their quest to make government control and run healthcare is that evil for profit corporations in the insurance industry screw people over. Of course, knowing how inefficient and ineffective government is at anything it undertakes due to my interactions with it, I am usually flabbergasted that they feel government will do a better job. Seriously, when the “social justice”, “war on poverty” big government can’t do it right and billions are squandered, why would anyone think a big government bureaucracy will do anything else?

The federal government’s largest housing construction program for the poor has squandered hundreds of millions of dollars on stalled or abandoned projects and routinely failed to crack down on derelict developers or the local housing agencies that funded them.

Nationwide, nearly 700 projects awarded $400 million have been idling for years, a Washington Post investigation found. Some have languished for a decade or longer even as much of the country struggles with record-high foreclosures and a dramatic loss of affordable housing.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which oversees the nation’s housing fund, has largely looked the other way: It does not track the pace of construction and often fails to spot defunct deals, instead trusting local agencies to police projects.

The result is a trail of failed developments in every corner of the country. Fields where apartment complexes were promised are empty and neglected. Houses that were supposed to be renovated are boarded up and crumbling, eyesores in decaying neighborhoods.

That’s the future of healthcare too. Except the numbers will be in the trillions, and the fields won’t be empty, but full of graves of people that were “helped” by government run healthcare. I know how the left will defend this! Its healthcare, so this is real “serial”, and they will definitively do it right because of that, and they will make sure the right people are in charge! Heh! Epic fail.
