Like a majority of those who read my writings, I am tiring rapidly with the “Occupy Anything” crowds. Although the real agenda has not been outlined coherently, the signs demanding corporations “give” anybody anything - whether it is a job, health care or otherwise - constitute nothing more than a threat of theft. Webster’s Dictionary defines theft as “taking and removing of personal property with intent to deprive the rightful owner of it.” If you didn’t earn it, and if you “take” what doesn’t belong to you, it is theft. Hopefully, I use language elementary enough for the protesters to understand.

In the real world, I began a journey into the working sector. Having spent the better part of the past thirteen years as a small business owner, Obamanonics and paying for things like medical bills and the grocery tab for a growing teenage boy, I had a choice – go protest because no one was giving me anything to improve our quality of life, or get a job to assist my husband in maintaining our household and standard of living. From the bottom up, we worked very hard for all we do have. ...

"Note to Protesters: Get a Job*, Get a Life and Get Out of Mine"

* - To "get a job", you must have a perfect work history with no gaps, but no more than x number of jobs in the past x years, you must submit to a background check, a drug test, a personality test, a credit check which must be clear, you must be willing to accept a wage that can not possibly pay expenses and pay back any loans you have taken out at the same time, you must have at least five years of experience and a college degree for this job even if it is entry level, oh, and you MUST be currently employed too.
