What little sense any of us could glean from the "Occupy Wall Street" movement was that the occupiers hate the wealthy. Well, not all the wealthy. They don't seem to mind Oprah Winfrey or George Soros or Michael Moore or rich Democrats or Big Entertainment moguls or most any lefty celebrity. So, it's wealthy bankers of the Wall Street variety. Well, they don't seem to like dock workers, either, since one group decided to interfere with life at the Port Authority in Oakland.
But, hey, they really don't like the wealthy. Right? And all the talk about the wealthy being the ones who create jobs is all myth. Right? Well, ask Tracy Postert, an occupier who landed a Wall Street job.
Now that we know what the hypoccupiers want (which becomes even less evident when one reads the comments made on articles like that above), here is something for the movement to occupy:
The NFL plans to transform part of Union Station in downtown Indianapolis into a ski lodge-themed hospitality area for VIPs during February's Super Bowl.
The so-called NFL House will cater to corporate sponsors, team owners and former players and coaches from Feb. 2 through the Feb. 5 game two blocks away at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The design for Union Station's Grand Hall includes a massive fireplace, 22 large flat-screen televisions, two large dining areas, a game room and meeting areas, the Indianapolis Business Journal reports. The league plans for the site to accommodate 800 people a day while open until 3 a.m. and feature talks by players and coaches, music from celebrity DJs, live bands and celebrity chef appearances.
The NFL hasn't had such a facility at previous Super Bowls but plans to construct them at the next two Super Bowls, said Mary Pat Augenthaler, the league's vice president of events.
"I think it will be a place to go to unwind and maybe get away from the busy-ness of Super Bowl weekend," Augenthaler told The Indianapolis Star.
Wow! Talk about arrogant opulence. Corporate sponsors. Team owners. Former players and coaches. Sounds exclusive. Sounds like the wealthy to me. Ya know... the one percenters.
So where are the 99 percent hypoccupiers? Isn't this just another example of the wealthy treading on the backs of the deserving unfortunates?
Where is the Occupy Super Bowl?
Oh. That's what I thought.
P.S. Hey, there are rumblings of Occupying the Super Bowl. Google it. Personally, I would love to see the hypoccupiers keep getting their message out. The more Americans comprehend their anarchism and liberty-squelching government policy ideas, the more they will be appropriately rejected.
