PROTESTS: You can’t always get what you want

Life is not fair, which is why the economic market is not conforming to the Occupy Wall Streeters’ whims and desires.

Perhaps there should be a conglomeration of new government programs that forgives all college student loans and allows one to stay in their desired field of study as long as they wish. And should one eventually get an inclination to work for a living, they would be guaranteed a well-paid supervisory job, which with their superior intellect and higher consciousness, would serve to further direct the lives of us simple common folk.

How to pay for it all? Well, just like the intents of the protesters’ rants, it’s all a fantasy. Fortunately, common sense usually prevails, and reality awaits for those who eventually decide to grow up and expand their universe beyond narcissistic feelings.
