But the Conquered, or their Children, have no Court, no Arbitrator on Earth to appeal to. Then they may appeal, as Jephtha did, to Heaven, and repeat their Appeal, till they have recovered the native Right of their Ancestors, which was to have such a Legislative over them, as the Majority should approve, and freely acquiesce in.

OWS-ers Exposed as The Dimwits We Were Waiting For

The following video (H/T: Powerline) gives a not-so-surprising glimpse into the OWS mind.  What is clearly lost on the occupiers (at least, before the film-maker Evan Coyne Maloney spoke with some of them!) is the irony of a movement that seems to want the government to do something about the "evil" of banks and Wall Street, when the current President is so beholden to those very banks.  What part of the logic of  "if BoA is a terrible institution - it is! -then the politicians it strongly supports should be suspect" is the stumbling block?
