Another Robertson Faux Pas

Watch This then we’ll discuss

Did ya watch it? You have to watch it in order to get it.

The ever sane Pat Robertson has decreed that those Occupying Wall Street are “nuts” and has implied they are simply being sheep following the words of Mr. Obama in villainizing the rich.

Idiot.

Considering that his net worth is between 200 million and 1 billion dollars (1) it isn’t surprising that Pat Robertson has missed what the problem is and why people are occupying Wall Street.

The poor of this nation aren’t pissed that the rich are successful, the poor are pissed that the rich, the disgustingly rich are greedy. It is the love of money displayed by the rich that have caused the poor to be so angry.

One might think that being a preacher, Pat Robertson would have picked up on this considering his own holy book states: For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. (2)

In this nation where the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer it was only a matter of time before the PEOPLE rose up and started protesting. It has nothing to do with being “nuts” or being jealous of those who are successful- it has everything to do with the lack of  equal opportunity to be successful.

When greed is rampant, as we see in American politics and corporations, opportunity for hard work bringing about success is almost non-existent. Not all of us have a desire to lead shee-people, like Robertson, in order to gain easy money. Many of us just want enough to live, which is our basic human right.
