Occupy Vancouver/Wall Street/etc.

I think this movement is both very rational and irrational. It depends mostly on the reasons behind it.

For example, if you have served your country overseas, have a degree(s), been laid off and on the job hunt for ___ months, your home has been foreclosed, and then you see bank CEO's using government bailout money to give themselves cash bonuses in excess of millions of dollars, I'd be more than upset too. If you're protesting just for the sake of "protesting" than this is just dumb.

I've thought a few times what would happen if someone with too much money and time on their hands went down to these Occupy demonstrations with a scissor lift and just rained money down on people. Would the movement turn into a free for all?

This would probably work better with US $1 bills rather than loonies...
