"Yes, we can! Yes, we can!"They actually believed that they could while away years of their lives in bong-hits
and yoga meditations and sex with every dumb prick on campus and still march off to Never Land to find a guy named Jack with some magic beans that would make them all rich and fat and happy too. -- PJ Media » The Five Most Infantile Beliefs on Display at the "Occupy" Tantrums

Zombie has given us new words! I love new words: Occutantrum:
"A clique of privileged U.C. Berkeley students, upset that they’re the top 1% of elite students in the state and thus disqualified from participating in the Occupy movement, could no longer contain their frustration on Wednesday and threw an Occutantrum, attempting to “occupy” a few square yards of the 1,200-acre campus. The police dutifully played their roles in the street theater performance, showing up in riot gear and looking scary so the privileged students could shout at them and feel properly revolutionary, as instructed by their professors. Following the script, the police repeatedly removed the handful of occupation tents so that the students could feel sufficiently wronged by authority figures and thereby earn their “Berkeley protest stripes,” which have been a requirement for graduation since 1964.
The group tantrum also gave the students a chance to test their fluency in Occupese, a new language which they have all been studying since the semester began on September 17."

And here's my contribution: OWS protesters: Obamaville White Squatters. Oh the footage we have for political commercials. These things will just write themselves, since they won't right themselves.

How about calling the dunces at John Zuccoti Park in NYC, "Jack Squatters"?

I posted that link on FB earlier. Nice discussion of OWS is there, but then, most FB noobs will never read anything that long.

Yes, We can, Yes, We can, Yes, We can!
The question for them is when, you haven't done it yet. And you won't do it by taking a dump in your tent.

"(W)hile away?" I wasn't a one-percenter even at a state college, but I was learnt the difference between "wile" and "while."
