LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Commentary: Yeah, I lost patience with Occupy Little Rock too.

They were the guy at the party who just won't leave; or the guy you don't see that often but every time you do, he tells you the same story; or when you're at a stoplight and there's a homeless guy at the corner just 15 feet away from you and he's got a cardboard sign and you can't decide if the guy's for real, or just a pro-panhandler.

Occupy Little Rock wore out their welcome, if there ever was one. Over and over I kept hearing people asking what good they were doing camped out. What were they trying to accomplish?

Not that I'm their official spokesman, but here's what, in my mind, they did: They weren't making a statement, they were asking a question. They were asking, "Is greed an American value?"

Look at Wall Street, Washington, Tunica, the lottery, headlines over the last 20 years and get back to me with your answer. In their attempt to make us examine our priorities, Occupy became the noble blemish.
