Re: The Occupy Seattle protesters (TNT, 11-3).

Why not occupy a job? Instead of living off taxpayers, become a taxpayer. If it’s not a great starting wage, you will not pay income tax and might even get an earned income credit back.

If you don’t have a car, get a job on the bus routes we taxpayers are supporting. Get some food stamps with the wage you earned and double your wherewithal for food.

Taxpayers are tired of being your sole support, but we won’t mind helping a bit while you are busting your hump to help yourself. Really.
