Are You Smarter Than a Wall Street Occupier?

By Debbie Schlussel

Yup, they are complete morons.  For people who want to change Wall Street and hand over its wealth to those who didn’t earn it, the Occupy Wall Street crowd is a pretty ignorant lot that knows little about Wall Street, the stock market, or even how it is governed.  Liberal New York Magazine did a poll of Occupy Wall Street protesters at New York’s Zuccotti Park, and they knew absolutely nothing about Wall Street.  Vast majorities didn’t know what the S.E.C. is (Securities and Exchange Commission for all you OWS idiots).  They didn’t know such basics as what the Dodd-Frank Act is or what the government spends the most money on.  Their answers on the identity of the Chairman of the Federal Reserve are very revealing, not just in terms of ignorance, but racism against White people, and bigotry against Jews.  Here are just two graphs from the NY Mag article:

Check out the second graph . . .

If these are college graduates, some tuition refunds are in order.

Just as dumb as the tea party, I’m sure.

Guy on October 20, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    is guy’s iq

    in double figures ?

    prestigio on October 20, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    As bad as the tea party? what, are you RETARDED?

    Not that I’m a tea partier (although I certainly understand and support the notion) but there are HUGE differences between tea partiers and these wall street buffoons – get your facts straight.

    One group on average has supported families, contributed to retirement funds, supported businesses/payroll, paid the taxes (for the dimwits currently squatting ON wallstreet) saved for their kids to go to college…

    the other group? they’re the kids of the teapartiers, largely, entitled, educated in this idiotic school system (don’t believe me? read if you’re able NEA- the book explaining the beginning origins of the first teachers union, why it was put together, etc…has nothing to do with teachers or kids)

    btw – when you answer like that you sound dumb. you might try reading a bit, brush up on history and keep up on current events before OPENING YOUR YAP and perhaps you won’t sound like like someone who belongs in a fitted helmet? yes? just a suggestion.

    You’re sure?…Than you’re an idiot too.

    shegundala on October 22, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    One thing’s for sure OWS has the Tea Party beat by number of arrests. The Tea Party also doesn’t crap on police cars or fornicate in public.

    Kris on October 26, 2011 at 7:55 pm

They don’t teach this in college. They teach the environment, how bad any business is, how to “make a difference,” and how to party. All that for a mere $40,000 per year. What a great country. If only they were smart enough to realize how good they’ve got it. Want some cheese with that whine?

JeffT on October 20, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Guy, go troll somewhere else.

JeffT on October 20, 2011 at 1:26 pm

The vast majority of “smart” people who went to college don’t even have basic knowledge yet are always ready to spout off some leftie talking point to be taken seriously. I met a BA once who argued with me that Lincoln was the first president of the U.S. Just goes to show you.

Richard on October 20, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    Smart college students take engineering or hard sciences, hard to politicize those.

    Dave on October 20, 2011 at 8:11 pm

Many of these OWSers are complaining about all the $$ they owe in student loans. Now they can’t get a job. They should be out standing in front of their schools protesting how much the tenured profs and admins make. And protesting the crap they’ve been sold as “education”. They exit the university having no marketable skills with degrees in Psychology, AppliedDiversity,Womyns studies…blah,blah,blah.
Yeah, I really wanna hire someone like that.
Then if you do hire them, they think they ought to be CEO after a few months on the job. “‘Cause I are a collidge greduate”.

*Smirk* Yall’s Funny!

Right is ALWAYS wrong on October 20, 2011 at 2:34 pm

Hey Right (Left) is ALWAYS wrong, do you know anything about Wall Street? Or are you these pathetic for excuses OWS dumbasses who doesn’t know their hands from their buttocks? More likely you’re these OWS types who are completey ignorant of Wall Street and business.

Debbie, I’m really not surprised that the folks at these rallies are this ultra stupid of Wall Street, and I’m not the least surprised that they have no clue what the SEC means (which is as you claimed, Securities and Exchange Commission). One of my sisters is unemployed and she’s trying her best to look for another job (she was laid off a month ago) and she’s NOT at any of these rallies where I live in the New York City, NY area. Since the weather is getting a little more cold, hopefully these smelly, half-witted OWS will go back home to their parents basement continue to have a chip on their shoulder and blame society for all of their misfortunes.

I heard an interview with one of the OWS “occupiers” on the radio Tuesday. She claimed to be a senior at Columbia University – which if I’m not mistaken is one of the “revered” Ivy League universities where all of the nation’s “smartest people” go to school. This girl said she was involved in OWS because she thinks Citigroup needs to be stopped. Apparently, the good folks – oops, predatory evil lenders – at Citigroup had the incredible poor judgment to grant this girl over $100,000 in student loans over the past four years to pay for her education. Now that she is a senior and facing graduation, she has discovered that there was a clause in these loans that require her to PAY THEM BACK!!! And, OMYGOD, she has to start paying them back as soon as she graduates! Which means she will have to GET A JOB!!! But she’s an ART major and there just aren’t a lot of jobs for Art majors, and she should be free to “pursue her art” without being encumbered with this suffocating DEBT! PLUS, she also discovered, reading the loan papers, that if she does NOT pay these loans, her PARENTS will have to. Oh, the humanity!!! This girl was in HIGH dudgeon talking to the reporter. But, naturally, the reporter did NOT think to ask her what she thought was going to happen when she signed up for $100,000 in student loans! What did her PARENTS think was going to happen when they co-signed? I would love to go down there with a microphone and a camera and ask THOSE questions.

From what I understand it’s simply a bunch of people hanging out and ultimately looking to get laid.

    other than feigning

    isn’t that what the campus
    loud mouth leftism
    of the 60’s/70’s
    was all about ?

    prestigio on October 20, 2011 at 9:57 pm

My son is a junior majoring in Computer Science at one of the Top Ten public universities. He is already being courted by Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Google, Yahoo and Amazon. Outside the College of Computing, you constantly find someone from one of these companies, and many more, recruiting the CS students. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know where the jobs are. I even knew that when I was in college in the 70’s. I LIKED art but knew I couldn’t get an actual JOB in art! So I majored in business. And it’s not just the students who are stupidly picking their majors – I also blame their stupid baby boomer parents, who I think are the WORST parents ever (and I’m a baby boomer)! I’ve watched them coddle their children every step of the way, always bailing them out when they got in a jam and always telling them how right they are and how wrong everyone else is. The baby boomer parents created these idiots of all the Occupy movements. I just hate stupid people!

You obviously missed ‘Global Warming’, which the Environmental wackos have managed to hijack completely and make everybody who doubts that theory a ‘right wing nutjob’.

Too funny – the poll. The protestors got right the question ‘Does President Obama control the Federal Reserves?’ But had the question been ‘Does President Bush control the Federal Reserve?’, their answer would have been yes.

The people who said that the US is experiencing ‘both’ inflation & deflation must be exhibits. Oh, and the one about where most of the budget is – everybody there thinks it’s the military. But shouldn’t they be glad that the US is out of Iraq?

And in the comments field of that article, there were people asking that they be compared to those not protesting in terms of knowing the answers to these questions. Somehow, they don’t believe in giving credit to people who don’t know something not commenting on it.

Sean”wallbanger”Hannity had on of the OWS protesters on his show last week. Somew dimbulbed liberal who said that she went to NYU. Inearly ran off the road from laughing so hard at her stupidity. Hannity asked her how the evil corporations can be responsible for the financial mess we are in but the government especially our president isn’t to blame. Hannity with his “top notch” interview skills couldn’t get past her usual slogans and idiocy to get a good answer. He did find out that she was an obama supporter(shocking) and that she has a son. Some people are just too stupid to reproduce but what are you going to do.

End the Occupation.

Not Ovenready on October 21, 2011 at 11:20 am

    There many occupations of America we could/should end, I agree. Capitalism isn’t one of them.

    NormanF on October 21, 2011 at 8:41 pm

Most of these OWS goons are radicals, socialists, communists, anti-semites, ignorant, stupid, morons, imbeciles, idiots, etc. Many of them are college “educated” (I should say indoctrinated). They really don’t know why they are there. I recommend Ann Coulter’s most recent book, “Demonic”, wherein she explains the origin of mobs and their psychology (or is it psychopathy?).

Concerned Citizen on October 21, 2011 at 12:40 pm

If they had any brains they’d take a stack of business cards with them. Wait – then again, those idiots don’t know anything about business, do they.

shegundala on October 22, 2011 at 10:53 pm

It’s getting colder. Another month and there’s a good prospect of snow……..maybe the occupation will move to Miami.
