By Mr. Curmudgeon:
“Do no harm,” reads the medical profession’s ancient Hippocratic Oath. However, Bergen County prosecutor John Molinelli and the FBI allege that New Jersey Doctor Roberto Rivera, age 60, intended to do great harm with bomb-making chemicals, assault rifles, handguns and a stun gun. Dr. Rivera was active in the movement known as Occupy Wall Street – of whom President Obama said, “You are the reason I ran for office.”
According to the Bergen County Record, “In October last year, Rivera was photographed by Bloomberg News for a feature on Occupy protesters. He is quoted saying, ‘I’m glad that at last the youth of America is able to stand on two feet and take a position that millions of people around the world have taken that they will not be intimidated by the capitalist free market paradigm and they will fight against gross inequality in distribution of income and assets.’”
Apparently, Dr. Rivera possesses the youthful trait most prevalent among the adolescent left – impatience.
November’s election results begin America’s slouch toward Gomorrah, which can’t happen fast enough for the Rivera’s of this world. Patience my Occupy friends, your president and his compliant Congress begin the process this January. That’s when the nation officially dedicates all the energy of America’s economy to wealth redistribution and the dismantling of the “capitalist free market paradigm.”
They don’t call it the “fiscal cliff” for nothing.
