Apparently some of the folks slaving away to cook politically correct meals for the participants of Occupy Wall Street are sick and tired of working themselves to the bone for homeless people, criminals, and other freeloaders who are eating their food. This is called being mugged by reality.
It is also pretty darn funny.
The New York Post reported that volunteer kitchen staff at Occupy Wall Street are angry about working 18-hour days to feed the protesters but are being taken advantage of by the local homeless people and criminals. And they are going on a work slow down to protest at their protest.
For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad.
The menu as reported by the Post sounds… um… tasty, sort of. I’d rather have a pizza from Godfathers.
“We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, the Post reports from one Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer.
So, these Occupiers are tired of cooking for freeloaders, eh? And they want to ration the food?
It’s all rather amusing. One wonders if these people see the irony or catch even a whiff of a “lesson,” here?
“Free” invites abuse. Abuse causes rationing.
Can I ask them why they think Obamacare will be any different? Can I ask why they think offering everything else by government for free will result in anything less than obscene abuse and ultimate rationing and ineffectiveness?
Are these Occupy people so unable to think critically that this lesson is lost upon them?
