Adam Carolla's rant about the Occupy generation

Adam Carolla's rant about the Occupy generation

(9:26) American comedian and radio host Adam Carolla attacks the Occupy generation as the first generation with the mentality of envy. My take is this: Although there probably is some truth in what he says, the Occupy movement is certainly not about envy. It is about opposing corporatism - which is when capitalism, left unchecked, leads to the world controlled by fewer and fewer corporations for the benefit of their top management and more importantly, to the detriment of everyone else and the planet. Discuss.

Envy is as old as man, its nothing new. Its time people like him die out and let the ass douches handle the future. Old men always think that the young are lazy and stupid, thats what old men do and it happens with every generation.

That may apply to some of the people who are protesting but what Adam fails to realise is that these people are not the driving force behind the movement. In fact, these people wouldn't have the where-with-all to get up and actually protest. It is not representative of the people who are involved. There have been people who thought like this for decades and could see the trajectory of todays society but had no voice. This is their voice & not the ones of spoilt brats. This guy just likes the sound of his own voice which is painful.

This is a flippant correlation and has no bearing on the matter. The guy is high if he thinks that it is envy driving people to stand up and speak out. For me, the movement stands for the betterment of society and to actually rid the world of the money hungry, envious and greedy people who are currently the ones responsible for the worlds economic, societal & behavioral problems. What an ugly short-sighted American twat that Adam guy is.

Envy is new in this country? Are you nuts? Maybe you should try reading some of the things the founders wrote when they were struggling to become wealthy, successful, or just socially prominent?

I'm tired of uninformed people like this being given an audience. He needs to get the **** off the radio if he's not bother going to investigate what he's ranting about. Talk about lazy and entitled. Look at how hard Adam Carolla as worked. Everything he's ever been involved with has been horse shit, but he gets paid for it anyway. Just like a bank, or an energy company, or an american car company, or a military contractor. Starting to understand OWS?

I am not surprised that I have never heard of this uninformed knobhead, and hope it's the last time I hear of him.
