Are you smarter than a third grade Occupy Wall Street protester?

We’re supposed to believe that Albemarle County third graders wrote the following song… really:

ChildOccupierSome people have it all
But they still don’t think they have enough
They want more money
A faster ride
They’re not content
Never satisfied
Yes—they’re the 1 percent

I used to be one of the 1 percent
I worked all the time
Never saw my family
Couldn’t make life rhyme
Then the bubble burst
It really, really hurt
I lost my money
Lost my pride
Lost my home
Now I’m part of the 99

Some people have it all
But they still don’t think they have enough
They want more money
A faster ride
They’re not content
Never satisfied
Yes—they’re the 1 percent

I used to be sad, now I’m satisfied
’Cause I really have enough
Though I lost my yacht and plane
Didn’t need that extra stuff
Could have been much worse
You don’t need to be first
’Cause I’ve got my friends
Here by my side
Don’t need it all
I’m so happy to be part of the 99

Bovine. Fecal. Matter.

There’s no way an 8 year old writes that kind of crap.  The school system is insisting that they did.


Hot Air has much more to include who might just be on the prime suspect list for filling young minds full of mush.

    “Mm, mmm, mm!

    Barack Hussein Obama

    He said that all must lend a hand
    To make this country strong again
    Mmm, mmm, mm!
    Barack Hussein Obama

    He said we must be fair today
    Equal work means equal pay
    Mmm, mmm, mm!
    Barack Hussein Obama

    He said that we must take a stand
    To make sure everyone gets a chance
    Mmm, mmm, mm!
    Barack Hussein Obama

    He said red, yellow, black or white
    All are equal in his sight
    Mmm, mmm, mm!
    Barack Hussein Obama

    Mmm, mmm, mm

    Rick -I recall that at the time the school claimed the music CLASS wrote that little ditty, not the music teacher. But then, if they can tell you while you’re freezing your stones off and shoveling away 2′ of snow that it’s because of Global Warming does this surprise any of us?

  • Somehow, reading this I thought of a song I heard a while back…  (Emphasis mine.)

    The Rainmakers – Government Cheese

    Give a man a free house and he’ll bust out the windows
    Put his family on food stamps, now he’s a big spender
    no food on the table and the bills ain’t paid
    ‘Cause he spent it on cigarettes and P.G.A.
    They’ll turn us all into beggars ’cause they’re easier to please
    They’re feeding our people that Government Cheese

    Give a man free food and he’ll figure out a way
    To steal more than he can eat ’cause he doesn’t have to pay
    Give a woman free kids and you’ll find them in the dirt
    Learning how to carry on the family line of work
    It’s the man in the White House, the man under the steeple
    Passing out drugs to the American people
    I don’t believe in anything, nothing is free
    They’re feeding our people the Government Cheese

    Decline and fall, fall down baby
    Decline and fall, said fall way down now
    Decline and fall, fall down little mama
    Decline and fall, decline and fall

    Give a man a free ticket on a dead end ride
    And he’ll climb in the back even though nobody’s driving
    Too ******* lazy to crawl out of the wreck
    And he’ll rot there while he waits for the welfare check
    Going to hell in a handbag, can’t you see
    I ain’t gonna eat no Government Cheese

    But it’s so tasty. All you’ve got to do to get it is… give up your ambition, your pride, and your self-sufficiency.

      Here’s the YouTube of the audio:

      Guy sounds like Stan Ridgeway of Wall of Voodoo.

    • I thought of “Money for Nothing” but replaced  “guitar players on MTV”  with “politicians up in D.C.”

  • herddog505

    Sometimes I expect libs to start referring to Barry as “The Dear Leader” or something like that.  Jebus…

    • They don’t?

    • Easy there, fella, or they might start releasing his golf scores!

      • retired.military

        Well at least they are a lot higher than his IQ scores.

      • Well he is trying to beat the dear leader’s 27 holes in one, in one day while being -57 under par.

  • What do third graders even know about the OWS [bowel] movement?  I have a third grader and do you know what she’s interested in?  Playing with toys and friends, watching cartoons and playing video games.  These children are being brainwashed and the school is lying about it.  If my kids were in that school and were being force-fed such leftist drivel, I’d pull them out TODAY and homeschool them.

    • Albemarle County is the Charlottesville area = UVA.  For all the great engineering, medical, international relations, and law courses they offer, they still have a fat, happy, and overfed contingent of liberal arts professors, too.  And we all know that means more socialists getting fat off government education subsidies while constantly whining about the wealth-creating system that feeds them.

      Mark my words, I smell the influence of a Comparative Transgendered Literature Professor in here somewhere.

    Is that Chico or Stephen with the facepaint on?

  • I wrote this one myself, with a little help from Woody Guthrie….

    I’m Taxing your land
    As sung By – Barack Obama (With apologies to Woody Guthrie)

    I’m taxing your land,
    That makes it my land,
    From California to the New York Island,
    From business owners, to the gulfstream jet setters
    This tax will steal from you for me.

    As I went talking, on that teleprompter e-way
    I said to Congress, ‘I’m getting my way,’
    I said to China, ‘We need to parlay,’
    This land will be sold to you by me.


    As I  moaned and mumbled, through many missteps
    to the media cameras, at the whitehouse doorsteps
    ‘More taxes for thee,’ my message pounding,
    This land’s been sold, so eat your peas.


    Then I needed a vacation, so I went golfing,
    And the media fans waving, and Joe Biden was drolling,
    My voice kept chanting, ‘The debt ceiling needs lifting,’
    I’m the chosen One, so eat your peas.


    One more debt meeting, with members of congress,
    In the Oval office, I told those leaders,
    As they stood their ground there, Stop me they wouldn’t dare,
    ‘The Debt Ceiling must lift by you for me.’


    A Grassroots movement, then tried to stop me,
    Waving a big sign that said, “VOTE FOR THE TEA PARTY,”
    But on the other side, it said “NO MORE TAXES,”
    That’s good for you, but not for me.


    No G-O-P leaders, can ever stop me,
    As I go taking, your freedoms a-way,
    My Socialist roadmap, you just can’t turn back,
    Our Future’s been sold, so eat your peas.

    I have a yacht (albeit a small one) who are these a**holes to say that I don’t need it? I’d be miserable if I couldn’t play with it all summer.
