Herman Cain to Occupy Wall Street protesters: If you’re not rich ‘blame yourself’
As always, this entry is the same as all other entries and is merely the opinion of a Disgruntled Old Coot.
My frame of reference is based upon an enormous amount of non-fiction reading along with decades of life experience within the working-poor socio-economic class.
Hey MOUTH… (MOUTH is my label for that Herman Cain ex-candidate for the 2012 presidential election) have you ever considered for a moment the arduous efforts of the folks working the fields that provided the tomatoes for the processors where blue-collar folks labored to create the products needed for your low-paid laborers to place a finished pizza into the hands of the consumer?
How about the truck drivers facing the hazards on the road of delivering the products from the vine to the processor to the warehouse and eventually to your retail outlets?
transportation and warehousing (586 deaths) registered the largest number of deaths per sector
I am likely correct when I declare that the vast majority of those folks doing their task allowing you to become wealthy are FAR from your wealth level.
So, they have only themselves to blame for being cogs in a huge machine you manipulated to your own benefit.
That’s okay… that is how our economic system works.
Just never enter the agricultural fields and spew your tripe at the vatos laboring there… well… maybe you should!!!! You might learn about an alternate reality Mr. MOUTH.
Okay… the above was written after what is written below. Wandering the Web I ran into an older news story when the media grabbed the MOUTH’S spewing and made it easily available to the public.
I was angered then and remain so but I am glad the MOUTH spoke since it shows an attitude I believe many of the USA wealthy folks hold… looking down on the “commoners” they view as below them.
I suppose that many at the heights of the socio-economic hierarchy tend to forget it takes a team to run a modern, industrialized country.
Below is the message board comment I wrote earlier today that led to this blog post.
Remember, folks, that my experience and education informs me that many but not all of those atop the socio-economic hierarchy view the masses of common folks as losers… not as deserving as the wonderful better class of super-humans lording over us.

Where would that BIG-talking “man” be without the arduous efforts of many low-paid workers who likely never received ANY benefits other than a meager wage?
How about the many folks who view ordering a take-out pizza as a special treat and who had to give up something to get that treat… a treat that made BIG MOUTH wealthy?
How about the person serving a military career who will always be far from wealthy protecting that BIG MOUTH so he can safely use others to garner that wealth?
I can only guess but as far as the basic skills needed to operate a pizza firm and accumulate large amounts of wealth I declare that there are surely many MILLIONS of people iside the USA who could have performed the functions of MOUTH.
I wonder if MOUTH sings loud and proud at a church where he will likely proclaim his adoration for the Jesus fellow of long ago.
Whether viewed as a deity or just an enlightened human I believe Jesus would have not viewed MOUTH in the best light but would forgive MOUTH for his likely viewing himself as better than common folks just because he amasses legal tender for public and private debts.
