Ahh, today is the second month anniversary of the so-called "Occupy Wall Street" movement.
So how to celebrate?
By being like the vermin that most are, they are leaving (well being thrown out, finally!) their so-called "occupy" zones for many a downtown to get their sycophants and hangers-on all ramped-up.
Since the "occupy" movement jumped the shark a while back, they are doubling-down and taking their protests right to the heart of their hatred.
Today, the "occupiers" went all over New York City. To Wall Street itself. Then marching around the whole of Manhattan and on the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.
But read what this "occupier", David Suker, said about the day's activities:
"We just encircled Wall Street. We'll do it all day," said David Suker, a protester who was among the crowd, distributing copies of the "Occupy Wall St. Journal."
"If we don't have the park, we'll take the streets. If we can't take Wall Street, we'll take the side streets," he said.
OK, this is the problem with the whole "occupy" movement.
They are taking this as if it is a war, not a political movement. Again, as I pointed out as to why the "occupy" movement continues to lose support, it is because they sound and act patently anti-American. Like the anti-Vietnam war protesters, once there is violence and radicalism, the Great Silent Majority turn away. Even if they may agree with the basic point. And even then, that opinion may change.
While there was the joy of vermin desperately trying to really take Wall Street, their brethren were busy all over the United States.
Here in my neck of the woods, in downtown Los Angeles, the "occupiers" were pretty busy today.
While only 23 vermin were taken off the streets, they definitely made their creepy presence felt. Twenty-one of those arrested were sitting in a circle, in the middle of a major intersection. Of course they were blocking traffic in the middle of rush hour. Nice. But what does one expect of unrestrained vermin? Again, here is the words of one of the "occupiers", an unidentified one, that spoke with the local Fox television affiliate, KTTV 11:
"If they (workers, commuters) go through any inconvenience, that is nothing compared to the inconvenience that the American people are going through right now."
Uh, yes it is a major inconvenience you dim bulb.
What if there was ambulance going to an emergency call? Or a fire engine? Is that a minor inconvenience? I think not.
Again, people may have some agreement with the "occupiers", they do not particularly like the actions that these vermin are taking. And eventually, those people are deciding that we, the American people, have had enough of this mindless class warfare.
And if that is not enough, even here in my fair burg of Pasadena, California, the vermin were out in force.
Local lefty "activist", Patrick Briggs, got some fellow vermin at a local fire station to use in support of raising taxes on those making $200,000 a year.
BTW, the definition of rich changes all the time with these lefties.
The issue is that seven of eight fire stations need seismic retrofitting. And one closed down recently because there is not enough funds anywhere to do the retrofitting.
But, according to Mr. Briggs and his fellow-travelling left-wing vermin, if we just raise taxes on those making $200,000 or more, all will be well. The Pasadena fire department will have all the money it needs to retrofit the fire stations. Maybe even more than that. The state will have more money than it needs. Blah, blah, blah.
Mr. Briggs, there are not enough Californians making $200,000 or more to tax to meet your nirvana. I am sorry to inform you of that fact and reality. Because once that were to happen, we will lose many of those taxpayers. And no way will we get enough, if any to replace those taxpayers.
Again, if government at all levels were to prioritize spending, many of these issues would not be issues.
But blaming the eeeeevvvvviiilllll "rich", Wall Street, the "bankers" and the like does not solve any problems. And "occupying" to bring about a change most Americans would not recognize is losing steam and fast.
But that is not stopping this vermin from scattering and seeking more chaos to bring about their "change".
