Occupy Wall Street rank less offensive than the media which is odd.
Since it was almost impossible to tell them apart for a while they share the same tense and ideas.

It's the actors the rappers the artists who get their first and soil the path by masquerading tracks as edginess.
Take the most -- hip hop artist today killer Mike whose lyrics include -- I'll leave you with four words I'm glad Reagan dead.

Fact is risk isn't wishing Reagan -- that's exactly what lame pop culture critics like walker diet for.
They never met a shocking artists they didn't embrace because their own insecurities speed the need to be cool.

Indiana before Oklahoma -- and make -- of those decent people I've run across you wouldn't say those guys that.

Those people you make fun of -- Rednecks they don't -- -- a little bit of amends are nice people at.
