I am Not Sure 3.5 days a Year for the Occupy Protestors is Enough

Russ Steele

In my early life I did what Bill Whittle is recommending for the Occupiers in the video below.  In the late 40s and early 50s my family lived on the edge of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho. We lived in a small log cabin on Blackbird Creek. The cabin was build in the mid 1800s of lodgepole pine logs. It had a dirt floor, no running water and an out side privy. The next year we build a larger wood cabin at the town site. I hauled water from the creek, split wood to warm the cabin, and yes fished and killed furry animals to eat.  We picked berries and choke cherries for jam.  Only instead of 3.5 days a year, it was 365 days a year.  I can relate to Bill’s recommendations in the video, but I would opt for at least a week, and two weeks would be even better in the winter, with weather below freezing, and have to use an out door privy. Those boards can be very frosty in the morning.

Check out this video and tell me what you think:

  1. The commentary was right on the money Russ. For all of us watching the spoiled brats of the “self esteem” age whine it is a confirmation. His idea of taking all their comforts away for 3.5 days would result in further whining though. They would then have an Occupy Kazinski’s Cabin movement.
