    No wee. The OWS idiots are a bunch of burn outs who's only lot in life is to sit around smoking ganja in drum circles blathering about their ideals. The one's who do that they so envy are the producers in this country. Those who work 70, 80, 100 hours a week maintaining a better life for them and their family. You know wee, if these knuckleheads you support put out as much time and energy trying to make something of yourselves instead of this nonsense perhaps you can be as successful as those you hate but no, it's easier to sit on your ass and bitch instead. Allow Mr. Rohn to help some more:

    The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.

    The most important question to ask on the job is not "What am I getting?" The most important question to ask on the job is "What am I becoming?"

    What you become directly influences what you get.

    Financial independence is the ability to live from the income of your own personal resources.

    (here's a good one) Don't mistake movement for achievement. It's easy to get faked out by being busy. The question is: Busy doing what?

    (And Finally...and pay attention wee)The major value in life is not what you get. The major value in life is what you become. That is why I wish to pay fair price for every value. If I have to pay for it or earn it, that makes something of me. If I get it for free, that makes nothing of me.
    Oh, and wee, here's another old proverb:

    "If you always do what you've always done you'll always get what you've always got."

    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    Which brings us back to the OWS crowd, and their leader, the sheepdog/Border Collie. :D

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    It must be an empty and depressing life to have so little inner sense of direction or self that you would let the odd tag ends of society define your role and place in it for you.
