I was thinking about protests recently.  If protesters mean what they say, then why don't they put their money where their mouths are?

Wisconsin saw large protests a while ago because our governor wanted to limit the collective bargaining for public school teachers.  Rather than complain, and call me names, why didn't all the protesters each put some money, and maybe volunteer work, towards starting their own schools?  They could teach nothing but global warming and sensitivity training all day.  They could pay their teachers as much as they want.  And those of us who voted for our governor would have nothing to complain about.  The protesters would get what they want and they would not be demanding to take taxes from others by force.

Why don't environmental protestors get together and buy large chunks of land and tell loggers to get bent?

This idea may not work for every form of protest, but why don't the protesters spend more time trying their own ideas without demanding that people who disagree pay for the things that the protestors want?

(fyi: protesters are hypocrites who feel good when they try to "save the world.")


  1. Your righht about protests being hypocrites that want to feel good. They want to be able to point to the videos of the protests for equal rights back in the 1960s and say 'That's me, I am just like those people.' Never mind that the assertion is ludicrious. The modern protestor risks nothing by protesting while the blacks, dressed in their sunday best, risked everything.

  2. It is easier to bitch (protest) about something than to do something about it. Action smacks of effort.

    And they can't pool money because they don't have any. If they owned something that needed protecting, like money, they wouldn't be liberals :)

  3. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if
    all website owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. I usually do not leave a leave a response, however I browsed a
    few of the remarks on this page "Protests". I do have a few questions
    for you if it's okay. Is it only me or does it look like some of these remarks look like they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would like to follow you. Would you list of every one of all your social networking sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
