Time magazine has elected the collective "Protester" for their man of the year in 2011. Greece, Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street, emerging protests in Tea Party recognition? Thank you, Time magazine, for pointing out how righteous the protesters in Greece are for refusing to deal with the bitter realities before them, which their own government created. As other European countries attempt to bail them out, no amount is enough because they want what they were promised. This is the direction America is heading. Thank you, Time magazine, for recognizing the power of Molotov cocktails and a government's complete inability to responsibly govern.

Time magazine is not only recognizing Greece, or the Arab Spring, or Russia, but also Occupy Wall Street. Egypt is heavily leaning toward electing government leadership from the Muslim Brotherhood. Libya's protesters had been and would have continued to be decimated by the madness of their overthrown leader had NATO and the United States not intervened. Now Russia is catching the protest fever and, finally, there is Occupy Wall Street. OWS is Time magazine's man of the year.

If I knew that all I had to do to get my face on the cover of a magazine was possess poor hygiene, have few enough responsibilities to allow me to sleep in parks and streets for three or more months at a time, and mindlessly scream things which I did not understand and at the same time be completely incapable of calmly explaining why capitalism is so bad or why communism is so good...if I had known it was that easy then I would have had zero desire to ever be on the cover of a magazine like Time a whole lot sooner in my life.

Here are some of the features from the face of the collective "Protester" Time magazine holds in such high esteem:

644.3 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day107.
