It's hardly the usual crowd -- the Occupy Burque demonstration going on right now is full of 20somethings and hipster UNM students seemingly lamenting a lack of economic opportunity and the growing inequality in our country.
The signs they held marching along Central read:
"I am not your serf."
"Money for people's needs, not war."
"Banks too big to fail. People the right size?"
"My tax dollars paid for those tasers."

Good prerequisite: Inside Job
There is plenty of guilt to spread around from the home-buyer who bought well beyond his/her means (and was allowed to keep the home) to those working in the current administration.
I think at this point this thread has "these people should just shut up and get a job" responses from pretty much a complete roll call of DCF's resident Tea Party sympathizers. It's fascinating, like a funhouse-mirror reflection of one of the many pro-TP discussions on the site from this summer or last year.
Where does all the "get a job!" rhetoric go when the teabaggers spend tax day lining Montgomery? I guess one person's muddled, misguided ideological hodgepodge motivated by fear is another person's bold social revolution, right? Hilarious...some of you folks are taking "I was for it until I was against it" to a new level.
