Change, Occupy Wall Street Survey, Trick-Or-Treat, April "Fools"

Since we're on the subjects of Fools, Jokes, and Obama, I'd like to relate all 3.

The Obama Administration Joke below and the "65 million low-information voters who don't pay taxes and get free stuff from taxpayers and stuck us with the most pandering, corrupt administration in American history" reminded me of Occupy Wall Street and it's animal farm of idiots. 

I can think of no better way in these last few years to represent the uneducated left-wing voter who gave us Obama than the Occupy Wall Street Movement. 
Zuccotti Park Occupier & Face of Reason

Due to some problem I was back in the United States for a short period of time in 2011, the only time in the last 5 years. It was Halloween and I wanted entertainment. So I went to Target, bought a hipster hat and took the Metro-North train to NYC to do a little journalism and trick-or-treat tent to tent at Occupy Wall Street, Zuccottii Park.

Earlier in the day I made a short survey of 20 agree or disagree questions to give to the protesters. For weeks in Europe I had been reading the news about these Occupy movements. It seemed from the start that these were a bunch of entitled and confused communists, although apparently no one could prove this as the group would not share their political stances or demands. 

With my 20 question survey I hoped to make these people's ideology clear. After the survey I planned to reward myself by doing some midnight trick-or-treating (dressed as a hipster) into the Occupy Wall Street tent village and perhaps provoke one of the idiots to attack me on video.

With my hipster hat I took 50 survey copies, polling about 20% of all the people protesting. To get honest answers (and not be attacked) I posed as one of the founders of Occupy Stamford (which never existed) saying how the survey was important to make sure that both of our movements share the same ideology. Some refused but with help from specific protesters I was able to get the 50 completed.

I also got the pleasure of confronting the People's Billionaire Russell Simmons and his entourage in front of a mob of people, although I was hoping for that fat slob Michael Moore instead.

The trick-or-treating could have been better. I won't share the videos now, but turns out that leftists aren't as generous as they claim. :D  Although I couldn't tell who was dressed up and who wasn't I visited perhaps 20 tents between midnight and 1 AM and I can tell you that these angry socialists weren't in the spirit of Halloween! Only twice, I think, I got any candy (which I was of course entitled to) and also only twice I was physically attacked. 

The survey results below weren't surprising, although I didn't think it would get such extreme Bolshevik responses. 

Of course their solution to a crisis caused by government and socialism was more government and more socialism. .
