    OWS: playing 60s radicals they saw on TV because the liberal arts degree they mastered in is not doing them any good in a down economy (IT and Healthcare are the way to go). Well guess what? Drumming and kicking out the homeless and ex-cons will not help you either. God forbid you work with your hands or take minimum wage. This is a land of opportunity not guarantees. Wall streeters listen to shareholders, politicians listen to voters. No one listens to smelly, raping drummers. Maybe you shouldn’t have borrowed $200K to master in Medieval Eastern Ugandan poetry.

  2. Larry says:

    All of you OWS Protesters, Please articulate what you would like to see changes and please spell it out. Taking money from the “Man” isn’t doing it for me. Sorry, all the money in Wall street is ours. That’s right, it belongs to the people and some institutional investors, who are typically the very pension funds and 401K’s that sustain, or will sustain the American people.

    Very nice site!

  4. Albert Right says:

    They are finally clearing out Zucotti Park. The mayor has declared that its a health hazard. So it looks like it may finally be over. The mayor says they can return eventually but it doesn’t appear too likely as NYPD was used to remove the protesters with the National Guard on standby. So far 217 arrest have been made and several people have been pepper sprayed and hit with an acoustic discomfort device. Maybe the rest of us can finally enjoy the park now.

    Want to know why I still believe Bill Murray is dying (even after his PR control/visit to the last Clemson game)?

    wix.com/vigilantechronicler/bill-murray-is

    No profit is sought from this. All I want, is for Bill Murray to step forward and start talking about this.

  6. michael says:

    seperate the homeless people from the protesters and then your problem might be a little easeir to handle,because homeless people do not have park space, after a certin time the parks close,so they have to go elsewere to campout.but they are being very slick.

    Go home to your parents house which im sure is in some upscale hood in westchester or beregen county take a shower and hop into your range rover and follow dave matthews around the country
