Wall Street “Occupiers”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 2:54 pm

The locals are tiring of them. The New York Times reports:

… In interviews, business owners said they were especially annoyed that the organizers of the grass-roots movement neglected to include portable toilets in their plan to bring down Wall Street.

Several businesses said they had no choice but to respond to the influx of protesters by closing bathrooms.
Mike Keane, who owns O’Hara’s Restaurant and Pub, said that the theft of soap and toilet paper had soared and that one protester had used the bathroom but had failed to properly use the toilet. Both Ms. Tzortzatos, owner of the Panini and Company Cafe, and Mr. Keane said the protesters rarely bought anything, yet hurled curses when they were told that only paying customers could use their bathrooms.

It’s like a cockroach infestation.

UPDATE: The whole thing just keeps getting stinkier.


  1. These protesters should have the decency to clean up after themselves and respect the rights of others. If they need to use the restroom of a local business, at least buy something from that business.

  2. Misplaced anger, y’ask me, and you did not.

  3. Sadly, they will be relocating (if they haven’t already) to the more appropriately named “Union Square Park.” It’s like having a band of renegade circus freaks come to town and shmear their feces all over the place.

  4. Is Union Square closer to Midtown? I already told my daughter to fling bars of soap at ’em if any approach. That ought to scare them off.

  5. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Sunday the Occupy Wall Street rallies in New York City are an important part of the democratic system.
    “But it’s the American system. It’s the democratic system. We don’t all agree. We’d have a king if we were all of one mind. We don’t. We have different views. Part of the democracy of our country is the expression that people give, and the Constitution guarantees that,” Pelosi said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week.”

    You can take it from here, Jim.

  7. The occupiers appear to be a gathering of young politically confused adults sprinkled with some bedragled elders. It is difficult to understand their message as I have not heard one articulate spokesperson. I wish they would all have the common decency to clean up their mess and go home.
