How About Occupying A Shower?

By Wyatt Earp | October 3, 2011

God, I hate filthy hippies. I especially hate filthy hippies who waste everyone’s time with pointless “causes.”

Protesters speaking out against corporate greed and other grievances were maintaining a presence in Manhattan’s Financial District even after more than 700 of them were arrested during a march on the Brooklyn Bridge in a tense confrontation with police.

The group Occupy Wall Street has been camped out in a plaza in Manhattan’s Financial District for nearly two weeks staging various marches, and had orchestrated an impromptu trek to Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon. They walked in thick rows on the sidewalk up to the bridge, where some demonstrators spilled onto the roadway after being told to stay on the pedestrian pathway, police said.

The march shut down a lane of traffic for several hours on Saturday.

So because they want to protest against capitalism, they have to inconvenience thousands of people just going about their day? That is the ultimate douchebaggery. The worst part is that their protest is doing nothing. Nothing. It’s having no effect on the eeeeevil rich, and no real effect on anyone else.

    They won’t be occupying a shower anytime soon. As we unfortunately learned, sanitation is their lowest priority for the protest.

    The most interesting part of all of this is the utter hypocrisy of their protest. They are trying to rally against the “system” of Wall Street while Obama’s primary financing was paid for by the same Wall Street. They are calling for greater government control to redistribute wealth (even the use of force if necessary) while claiming “police brutality” anytime their protest is challenged.

    This is an oldie but a goodie of mine and it seems quite appropriate at this time…

    Sign on protesters’ foreheads: Space for rent within. Never used.

    Excellent post, observations AND comments by all.

    I love Bob’s “sign”…LOL!
    Agreed it is ALL hypocracy (with a dab of “double-standards” added in).

    Stay safe out there

    Obambi’s class warfare struggle is going “just as planned”
    to get the votes next year. Just think if any of those bailouts had really gone to the people with the stipulation you had to pay off your mortgage for instance. Millions of people would have paid off their homes, to the banks that required the capital flush. Then flushed the banks could have liquadated those assests and invested in new funds etc. Wall street would have gone nuts on investment funds. The people freed from mortages could now use what would have gone to the mortgage to apply to cars, appliances, schools for their children (private), groceries, hobbies etc. etc. etc. The average city/state
    economies now flush with cash from taxes on purchases
    could begin to pay their debts avoiding defaults/layoffs/etc.

    Even if that didn’t work and a deep recession hit, millions who now owned their homes would not suddenly be homeless resulting in more welfare, crime etc. etc. But since banks count more than people in our economy we drift inexorably towards the falls since its people who make up..any..economy.

    Sure some would have gone on a drink and drug binger
    rather than pay their house off but I bet out of working people that would be a very small percentage.

    Sure this would have helped working peeps more than those on welfare etc., but it would have shown that they cared for those who are working their butts off every day to support those that don’t work ALSO, and that the country cares rather than…bend over and open wider for those who don’t work.

    To rephrase Winston Churchill If I may:

    Capitalism is the worst form of economy on the whole of earth. With the exception of all the rest.

    “Just think if any of those bailouts had really gone to the people with the stipulation you had to pay off your mortgage for instance.”

    - Are you saying that I could have paid off my mortgage with that additional $2,300? ($700 billion/300 million Americans)

    Bitter – Truer words were never spoken.

    Eric T – They are rallying against eeeeevil corporations . . . while posting their antics of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Hypocritical much?

    Bob – You should read their rantings on Twitter. Duct tape worthy.

    Randall – the money would have gone to far fewer mortgages say 5 to 10 million then that would have been
    in the $100,000K range per person, way less than the $1.5 million or so average to create one job lately. Then each of those 5 to 10 million people would pump a mini stimulus of about $1 to 2 billion each month into their local economies by not spending it on a mortgage but on manufactured goods, foods, etc. preferably American.
    In short why did they give it to the bankers when it would have been more cost effective to give it to us? LOL

    Opps! $100K range lol

    JOn – That’s not what you said. You said “”Millions of people would have paid off their homes”. Period.

    And how in the world would that have been fair to give to the money ONLY to the Americans that have mortgages?

    When Jesse Waters interviewed some of them on O’Reilly the other night, most of them had no idea why they were there or for how long. Susan Sarandon mumbled something about the “Arab Spring” until someone pointed out to her those people were rioting against decades and decades of tyranny and genocide. I despise Hollywood moonbats! They are truly clueless.

    Randall – Why is it fair to give money to others who don’t work and pop out children to get more money? Yet not fair to give it out to people who work since a good portion of it is their money to begin with, if in an emergency it would help save the country.

    Only reason those with mortgages would be recipients, this time, is that this would help stabilze the housing market whcih all the big wig economists want to do. What better way to stabilize it all off!! Banks would still get the cash to be able to loan for newer housing etc., small and large businesses etc. And since the middle class has been floating the poor for decades anyways with them getting our cash via taxes/handouts its about time some flowed our way.

    To answer your ultimate wouldn’t be fair but it would do more overall good then being fair would do this time. Later another group could get bailed out
    when the economy is stronger and then another till all benefit.

    My fav is the guy that thinks there are 1000 members of Congress.

    These people are best the left can come up with to advance the class warfare meme? Did they place an ad on Craigslist asking for stupid, unemployed liberals willing to camp out for weeks at a time?

    If they did I bet there were thousands of responses. hehe.
