Patrice Lewis is one of my favorite writers because her work is based on "the basics". She writes from a basic reality that has stood the test of time, not delusional speculation and ideology that has been shown to be disastrous. These foolish OWS protestors are demanding perfection in a world where “we can only hope for the most acceptable imperfection”. And yet….they don’t even know what the perfection is they are asking for, and if they did, does anyone really believe they would have a clue as to how to implement it.
Patrice goes on to outline 14 points of reality that should be so obvious that even the casual observer should “get it”! This is truly, in my opinion, the definitive response to these protestors. Please take the time to read this article.

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is now entering its second month. I guess I can't blame the protesters for sticking around so long. It's exciting, isn't it? All the media attention, the celebrities and politicians fawning over them, the free food and goodies … Hey, if all it takes is camping in a park, pooping on police cars and waving signs – especially if I didn't have to show up to anything as restrictive as a JOB for a month or more – then I might consider joining the protests, too.
But this campaign apparently is not raising the IQ of any of the protesters, because they are still incapable of coherently explaining WHY they should receive something for nothing. When asked to pinpoint specific objectives, they wilt under logical questioning about how those objectives should be accomplished.......
