Wow, that sounds exactly like what happened over the summer when trashing the Tea-Party was all the rage. Good for the goose is good for the gander. Karma is a biatch.

Nels: meat0918: FlashHarry: Nels: Insta-don't care. Get a job.

there are jobs?

1 job for every 4 of the unemployed.

This is good news actually, because it was 1 job for every 5 of the unemployed.

They can complain when there's zero jobs. I also hear there's some states that needed farming labor. Crops were going to waste because those unemployed were far too lazy to take them. It's so much easier living off the hard work of your fellow citizens while you protest against them for donations.


See, this is that "internalizing the propaganda" someone else mentioned.

You're trying so hard to make someone lash out at you, why? Afraid of OWS, that they may actually change something?

Teabaggers/Fleabaggers. I see little difference. They're just flashes of fat in the pan as we cook us up a leaner America.

Less than 1 percent of Americans own food carts. That tells you everything you need to know. We're dealing with an elite, cloistered group of people. It looks like to me they got what was coming to them.

Aha. So it's a complete misunderstanding that the core issues are the corporate takeover of government and the enriching of the moneyed class at the expense of everyone else. Got it.


Okay, I get the concept of corporate takeover of the government, but I dont get how the moneyed class is gaining at the expense of everyone else? I would assume if you dont want to use their products you would just not use their products? Care to elaborate?

Zalan: Photos of the carts? evidence that it happened? For all we know it's the same millions in damage that was caused by the blue painter's tape in Wisconsin.


Or any police reports? I'm sure if someone really destroyed these people's property they would file a police report. It is the funny that with with all of these alleged incidents of violence being perpetrated by the OWS that there are never any police reports referenced, just statements from sources. Also in this age of the video camera, there is never any video evidence.

This text is now purple: Somacandra: Since reactionary activists have been proudly talking about their infiltration of Occupy movements and initiating violence (new window), how do we know any of these people were legitimate protestors instead of agent provocateurs?

If you legitimately represent 99% of the population, you also represent the agents provocateur.


But they don't necessarily represent you.

"Both carts have had items stolen, have had their covers vandalized with markings and graffiti, as well as one of the carts had urine and blood splattered on it," said Councilman Carl DeMaio.

The damages will likely require at least a complete cleaning if not a replacement of the cart covers, DeMaio said.

In addition to the attacks, the vendors also said they recently received death threats.


Take THAT Wallstreet!

Shostie: sinschild: Somacandra: sinschild: I think it is more of a reflection on the typical OWeS protestors hygiene or lack thereof.

Ah. I didn't realize that was a common media trope. I've been following the more Midwestern stuff, where Occupy Des Moines and others are talking about taking over Republican and Democratic offices during the upcoming Iowa caucuses (new window). There isn't the same sort of image with Occupy Des Moines, AFAIK.

Meh, I only have the local Austin TX ones to go off of, and they farking reek to high heaven. Then again Austin has always had more than its share of nasty hippies. Perhaps they are cleaner in other cities, but I doubt it.

There is (was) one going on in Houston. I'm not sure if it's still happening. Based on this image, I doubt it:

[i29.photobucket.com image 629x550]


There was one here, it lasted about 12hrs, but got started late.

What you have to realize about Houston though is that we are a city of fair weather fans. Ask the Astros, they'll tell you all about it. When OWS didn't win in the first half of the season the Houston fans stopped coming to the games.

As a non-union entrenched city it was harder to get people out there and the ones that did show didn't look good on TV. The whole thing was kinda depressing.

On the plus side, our mexican food it top notch!

Just look at all the video from Vancouver that people posted of the rioters, some of which were posted by idiot rioters themselves.

And we have zero video of these incidents. Zilch, zero, nada.

The cops are even wearing video cameras now, just so they can have their own video proof, and still, no actual evidence.

Considering the reaction to just this one little word, I'd say you struck a raw nerve there. Not caring much for either movement, I find it (and the parallel) to be most amusing.

"Fleabaggers" ?? I LIKE IT! Sums them up, actually. Dirty, parasitic...

At least the Tea Party didn't have to set up "Women's Shelters" (like in Zucotti Park) to protect women from the raping and pillaging going on at these "gatherings".

The double standard is delicious! The MSM goes nuts over every naughty sign, and every wackadoodle that shows up at Tea Party protests, but studiously looks the other way while various depravities go on at Fleabagger gatherings (crime, rape, violence, rape, etc.)

Why won't they go after Chris Dodd, and Barney Frank, the two most responsible for this financial mess? Oh, right, they're Dems, and the MSM loves them...

I still don't get it. Why are you calling them "Fleabaggers" ? It seems an idiosyncratic designation. Usually a satirical label has some tangential or ironic connection to the population its trying to describe. People use the term "Teabaggers" because those people called themselves the term, brought lots of tea bags to their protests and invoked the spirit of the 'Boston Tea Party.' Is it because they supposedly make corporate executives "itch" or something?


I thought it all boiled down to the trend to run every new news story through the meme filter.

Every scandal is now yaddayadda-gate.
Attempts to supress certain activities are now 'A war on (terror, drugs etc)'.
Real wars are now 'Operation scary adjective'.

Now they are turning every movement group into something-baggers.

Yes, because if it is not made up of liberals, being promoted by NPR, MSNBC, CBS, New York times. That makes it illegitimate. Conservatives should know their place and just shut up if they do not agree with you, right?

BTW: if the tea- party was so illegitimate, explain the 2010 election where the Tea-Party changed the balance of power in the House, instead of camping, vandalizing, making signs, attacking vendors and sexually assaulting their own participants like some in the OWS movement seem to be doing. One just seems to be a more effective political movement.
