This is the mentality of much of the left and especially the OWSers. THEY are entitled to that which they haven't worked for. They are OWED food, clothing, shelter, whatever they THINK they NEED.
They think they are entitled..........and they can take whatever they want.noamnety Donating Member (1000+ posts) Tue Oct-18-11 08:48 PM
Phone calls with my kid are always interesting. Tonight she told me she attended a Squativersary Party. Her friends have now been squatting in their (foreclosed? abandoned?) house for 5 full years. They've grown from two people in one house to a cluster of 16 people in 6 houses.
We were talking about what would happen if they got busted, she said not much, they might get evicted. It would be a loss because they've done a ton of renovations, but on the other hand they've gained a lot of building skills so she figures they'd still come out ahead. My daughter has some carpentry skills and is excited about the possibilities. I think her modern-day version of the american dream is to live in a nice squat someday.
Until SOMEONE ELSE thinks they are entitled to THEIR stuff...........then they are mad.......and "it's not right".
But clueless as always they don't get the irony or the stupidity.

This is one time I really can't work up any sympathy for people who have had things stolen from them. It's a first for me.Celebrated redistributionists discover healthy respect for private property

The lesson in this story, besides that irony is often delicious? Redistributionism always looks better when you don’t own anything yourself (via JWF):
Who’d have thought that a crowd of people demanding the seizure of wealth from banks, corporations, and the wealthy might also have a few thieves? I’m shocked, shocked to find theft occurring in a group that has hijacked private property it refuses to leave. I can’t imagine that a crowd that demands free higher education and the forgiveness of tens of thousands in student debt would also think of someone’s Mac or an iPhone as equally as communal as a college education.Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops — and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.
“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.
“I had my Mac stolen — that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”
Crafty cat burglars sneaked into the makeshift kitchen at Zuccotti Park overnight and swiped as much as $2,500 in donated greenbacks from right under the noses of volunteers who’d fallen asleep after a long day whipping up meals for the hundreds of hungry protesters, the volunteers said.
