Looking for Jobs

A sad day for the world.  It’s a perfect time to reflect on Steve Jobs contribution to the world and a great time to ask all the anti-capitalist out there to give up all the nifty toys and gadgets they own!  Funny how the demands of protestors at the “Occupy Wall Street”  do not match their lifestyles.  The irony!  Kevin Williamson of NRO has more.

I was down at the Occupy Wall Street protest today, and never has the divide between the iPhone world and the politics world been so clear: I saw a bunch of people very well-served by their computers and telephones (very often Apple products) but undeniably shortchanged by our government-run cartel education system. And the tragedy for them — and for us — is that they will spend their energy trying to expand the sphere of the ineffective, hidebound, rent-seeking, unproductive political world, giving the Barney Franks and Tom DeLays an even stronger whip hand over the Steve Jobses and Henry Fords. And they — and we — will be poorer for it.

And to the kids camped out down on Wall Street: Look at the phone in your hand. Look at the rat-infested subway. Visit the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue, then visit a housing project in the South Bronx. Which world do you want to live in?

  1. There is so much disinformation out there, and a general feeling that something is wrong. On one hand we can understand their fight and their frustration. It is just sad that most of them do not understand the problem and who caused it.

    I have seen some interviews with some of the demonstrators, and some of them make a lot of sense. The rest are just lashing out. Mostly because they have been raised in a world where there is always someone to blame, and someone who will fix things for them.

    And of course, there are some people who have no idea why they are there, and those who got their because someone’s giving them money to show up…
