The 1% Already Responded (in 1992)

In our ongoing meta-debate about OWS, I posted a pro-occupation clip from Garfunkel and Oates a few days ago.

Proving yet again that our corporate overlords (i.e. the 1%) are so far ahead of the 99% that they responded to the occupation in 1992.

Take a look:



Lyrics from the first song, "I'm a Bleeding Heart" go something like this:
I'm a bleeding heart
Let's give money away
To lazy people in the slums

I'm a bleeding heart
Let's eliminate our nuclear bombs
Arabs can be our friends (Right!)
Don't vote if you believe in that
We'll be fine without you

It's plain to see what you believe
Will lead to anarchy
And the second "Complain" go something like this:
Some people must have.
Some people have not.
But they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.

Some people will work.
Some simply will not.
But they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.

Like this: It’s society’s fault I don’t have a job.
It’s society’s fault I am a slob.
I have potential no one can see.
Give me welfare. Let me be me!

Hey, Bud, you’re livin’ in the Land of the Free.
No one’s gonna hand you opportunity!

Some people must have.
Some never will.
But they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.

I don’t have a house. I don’t have a car.
I spend all my money getting’ drunk in a bar.
I wanna be rich. I don’t have a brain.
Just give me a handout while I complain.

Or this: I wanna stay in bed and watch TV.
Go out weekends in a limousine
And dance all night takin’ lots of drugs
And wake up when I wanna.

Hey, Bud, you’re livin’ in the Land of the Free.
No one’s gonna hand you opportunity!

Some people will learn.
Some never do.
But they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.
Yeah, they’ll complain and complain and complain and complain and complain.
Amazing how the 1% knew (THEY KNEW) how bereft of ideas the OWS is now that they planted the seeds of it's dialectical demise almost two frickin decades ago.
