How You Know Occupy Wall Street = Fail

How You Know Occupy Wall Street = Fail

How many people do you think showed up at yesterday’s Occupy Trenton?

  • 100
  • 300
  • 500

Well the answer my friend is – “two dozen protesters“.

That’s right, the liberal tea party movement had a whole whopping group that is less than some college classes. Maybe it’s because even New Jerseyeans realize that demonizing capitalism is an exercise in failure and silliness. They don’t even have a real message or a real plan! What, are we going to tax everyone during a double-dip recession? Are we going to FORCE companies to hire people with silly degrees like music history or women’s studies of engineering (made up but this may exist)? Of course not. Anyway I await Blue Jersey and the unions to pay some day workers and have them show up to hold signs. Because that’s not astroturfing at all.

Finally, I sure hope they respect Mother Earth, Gaia if you will, and clean up after themselves.

    Lech Walesa, former Polish president, to visit New York in support of Occupy Wall Street

    By Corky Siemaszko

    Solidarity hero Lech Walesa is flying to New York to show his support for the Occupy Wall Street protesters.

    "How could I not respond," Walesa told a Polish newspaper Wednesday. "The thousands of people gathered near Wall Street are worried about the fate of their future, the fate of their country. This is something I understand."

    A former shipyard worker who led Poland's successful revolt against Soviet communism, Walesa said "capitalism is in crisis" and not just in America.

    "This is a worldwide problem," he told the Lublin-based Dziennik Wschodni newspaper. "The Wall Street protesters have focused a magnifying glass on the problem."

    Protest organizers said they will welcome Walesa with open arms.

    "He fought very, very hard for the rights of all working people," said Doug Forand of the 99 New York campaign, which is affiliated with OWS.

    Support from a world-class working-class hero like Walesa puts more pressure on Wall St. and on the government to get "the wealthiest 1% to do their share to create jobs and get us through this economic crisis," he said.

    A staunch anti-communist and former Polish president who helped steer his country to a free market economy, Walesa was invited to join the three-week-old protest by organizer Matthew Blair.

    Walesa has warned of a "worldwide revolt against capitalism" if the Wall St. protests are ignored.

    They are protesting the "unfairness" of an economy that enriches a few and "throws the people to the curb," he said in a recent interview.

    "That's why union leaders and capitalists need to figure out what to do, because otherwise they will have to contend with a worldwide revolt against capitalism," he said.

  2. As we gather toge­ther in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together­. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corpora­te forces of the world can know that we are your allies. As one people, united, we acknowledg­e the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperatio­n of its members; that our system must protec­t our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individ­uals to protect their own rights, and those of their neigh­bors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporatio­ns do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic po­wer. We come to you at a time when corporatio­ns, which place profit over people, self-inter­est over justice, and oppression over equality, run our government­s. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known. They have taken our houses through an illegal for­eclosure process, despite not having the original mo­rtgage. They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give executives exorbitant­bonuses. Zuccotti Park, general assembly, at Occupy Wall Street.

  3. A multi-chinned face dnrouvieg everything in sight?Com'on Rick.But it's not the fat jokes I'm focusing on; the point is that this isn't really a nonpartisan movement. It's a hyper-leftist group with far-left demands.
