Occupy nonsense at #CPAC

Friday, February 10th, 2012

The Occupy nuts were at CPAC, and Matt Lewis has a video, which apparently has the f-bomb, if you can make it out over the din,

Later on, the Occupiers moved down the driveway, and confronted Stephen Kruiser, who looked 100% like a one-percenter in pin stripes and 18k-gold earrings. I’ll add the video once he posts it.

Here’s a livefeed at what’s going on at 5:30PM,

#OWS, TIME’s Person of the Year

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

7 dead,
91 jobs lost,
5,464 arrests,
rapes, thefts, assaults, drug dealing, public defecation, in a really long rap sheet,
and TIME is so desperate for attention that they name “Protester” Person of the Year.



And now for something completely different…

Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, has offerred the Occupiers office space, housing, and farmland, proving that insanity is alive and well in La-La Land:

Occupy L.A. receives offer to decamp
Protesters could get downtown office space and farmland if they leave City Hall

city officials have offered protesters a $1-a-year lease on a 10,000-square-foot office space near City Hall. He said officials also promised land elsewhere for protesters who wish to farm, as well as additional housing for the contingent of homeless people who joined the camp.

As Jim Hoft said, “this won’t end well.”

Two #OWS leaders are staying at the W Hotel in downtown Manhattan. Their idea of being “the 99%” includes spending $700/night.

Peter Dutro, member of the group’s finance committee, charged the room to his American Express card.

“Don’t leave home without it!”

Police clear #OWS from Zuccotti park

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

Police Clear Zuccotti Park of Protesters; the protestors must have been adding transfats and too much salt to their food since Bloomberg finally got around to it,

The mayor, at his news conference, read a statement he had issued around 6 a.m. explaining the reasoning behind the sweep. “The law that created Zuccotti Park required that it be open for the public to enjoy for passive recreation 24 hours a day,” the mayor said in the statement. “Every since the occupation began, that law has not been complied with” because the protesters had taken over the park, “making it unavailable to anyone else.”

For Bingley and Wall Street!


Dishonor among thieves

TOTUS, the Teleprompter of the US, was kidnapped from the Virginia Center Commons Courtyard Marriott and released, unharmed, at the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express near the Henrico airport.

TOTUS was able to return to work on time for President Obama to say

“In some ways, they’re not that different from some of the protests that we saw coming from the Tea Party. Both on the left and the right, I think people feel separated from their government. They feel that their institutions aren’t looking out for them,” he said.

The redistributor in chief missed the point.

In many ways, they are different: For starters, Tea Partiers don’t steal from each other the way OWS Thieves preying on fellow protesters

Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops — and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.

Mostly because Tea Partiers stand for hard work and property rights – Taxed Enough Already is their motto.
