Making Indolence Profitable

The good news is that it appears all that yammering done by the OWS crowd on the evils of capitalism, is just that, yammering, and when the rubber meets the road, they understand the value a buck as much anybody, whew, I was worried there for a while.

The 99%, no, not this guy:

but those Che wearing Mao quoting souls actually braving the elements (hey, it beats working for a living), have come up with an idea that could put a little scratch in their pockets:

Occupy Wall Street is looking to make its mark — on everything from tote bags to t-shirts.

The Occupy Wall Street movement applied for the trademark to its name on Oct. 24, filing for the use of the mark on its website, in periodicals and newsletters, and on clothing and bags

Hawking T shirts and tote bags, is there anything more capitalistic then that?

What’s that old saying ,”If you can’t beat then, join them”?, depending on the profitability of this new venture, some of these guys just might graduate to the 1%, then they could be the enemy.

Once this idea grows roots and the OWS stores are as ubiquitous as Starbucks, you think if I went inside and bought a bunch of crap on my new OWS credit card, then, in keeping with the spirit of debt forgiveness (one of their big platforms) I tell them ,”Hey guys, I’m with you, credit cards are extensions of the power banks have over us, they keep us down and impoverished, debt forgiveness for all”, then stiffed them on my bill, I’m sure they would understand. Power to the people.
