The Iowa Family and Faith Thanksgiving Forum this week produced some interesting and meaty soundbites. Here’s Newt Gingrich on occupiers who want everything they haven’t paid for.
NEWT GINGRICH: All of the occupy movements start with the premise that we all owe them everything. The take over a public park they didn’t pay for; To go nearby to go to bathrooms they didn’t pay for; to beg for food from places they didn’t pay for; to instruct those who go to work to pay the taxes to sustain the bathrooms and to sustain the park, so they can self-righteously proclaim that they are the paradigms of virtue for which we owe everything. Now that is a pretty good symptom of how much the left has collapsed as a moral system in this country and why you need to assert something as simple as saying to them, “Go get a job right after you take a bath.”

Compare Occupiers to a meeting set by U.S. Senator Mike Lee for Tea Party affiliates and canceled by Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer. Lees guests were actually evicted from the Russell Senate Building.
