Feel Good Your Visit Just Helped To Donate The Ad $$$ To Cure Melanoma Cancer Tell Your Friends :)
It's been about 10 months since Ephman's blogged. The reasons are many (none that legit), but mainly it's been out of sheer laziness. So for Ephman to strap on the 'ol blogging feed bag, it's got to be something important.
Remember his famous "How To Change The World Your Own Way" post he made so long ago? BTW Ephman thanks you all, all 75 people that read that article (the rest of the internet people are pathetic). As he thinks about that post he's been pondering a lot about this Occupy Wall Street thing. And here's the story.
What are you crying about in the first place? Well the great Canadian (Disclaimer: Ephman is Canadian (Go Leafs Go!)) media foundation Adbusters wrote:
This is the main issue the occupiers have. WTF? Seriously "a Presidential Commission"? Is Ephman the only person that sees something wrong with that?

And you want this guy to setup a "Presidential Commission tasked with ending the influence money has over our representatives". Don't you see the problem with that?
Go Occupy The White House, the Senate, the Congress, and every other corrupt idiot politician that has stolen WAY more money from you then Wall Street ever has. Remember NASA's $10,000 toilet seat?
So you're crying because Wall Street Stole Your House! Wall Street never stole your house. It was never yours to begin with. You're making $45,000 a year, and took a loan out for $500,000 on a house. Again you see something wrong with that? Guess you're that sucker PT Barnum speaks about.
Wall Street made you go bankrupt! You maxed out your credit card and never took the time to read that you get charged like a 1,000,000,000% compounded monthly if you don't pay it all off? WTF? This is America. Albeit the education system here sucks! But didn't you learn how to read? Well you should have read the terms of the agreement when you signed up for that magically delicious credit card?
Wall Street won't let you have a job! Boo Hoo Hoo! Ephman moved to this country with literally $100 and a hockey bag of clothes. He's not looking for sympathy. But he took that idea of the "American Dream" and he worked his ass off to help startup an internet advertising company, and he worked his ass of to start an ad agency. What do you think the pilgrims would have thought about you? Or WWI or WWII veterans. Because the reality is that most 1%'ers are self made. Don't listen to idiots like Herman Cain that say "If you're not rich 'blame yourself'" Because sometimes luck has something to do with it. So go out there and make something.
Well guess what Occupiers of Wall Street. Even with your protests the Government and the Big Mega-Global Corps are winning. They're still keeping you stupid, they're still keeping you in their back pocket, and they're still keeping you quiet. Because the media doesn't care about you.
So What Should You Do?
What you should do is pack up your tents. Go park yourselves at Exxon's front doorstep, Bank of America's lobby, the steps of Congress, the halls of the Senate. Storm everyplace the President is and his equally illegitimate opponents. Go tell them! Tell the people that can actually make any change happen. Because just sitting on your ass in a park, and not direct confrontation will do nothing. Your cause ends up like most... it'll fizzle out.
The mega global corps have more money, the politians have no incentive to change, and the media companies see no upside in reporting it. Go confront, be the change, just don't talk about it in a park.
Disclaimer: Confrontation does not meet violent. Don't turn into the police force that are putting people in the hospital... Karma can be a bitch!
