- In Philadelphia, the authorities suggested to the Wall Street protesters they shouldn't urinate in public. In NY City, "The last three weeks have created unsanitary conditions and considerable wear and tear on the park," said NY City's Deputy Mayor Cas Holloway. And many of these people proclaim to be environmentalists and climate change adherents; yet, these very same urine soaked hippie wannabees are destroying the environment around them. In addition, residents living in the areas around these parks said rodents are now descending into the parks (I don't know which rodents they were referring to). We're witnessing the same conditions in Philadelphia.
- Breaking News: Mayor Bloomberg told the protesters to leave Zuccotti Park by Friday, because the city needs to clean it. These knuckleheads are not even policing their own areas of trash and filth. Pathetic.
- "Recession is Over News"---First time unemployment claims topped 400,000 AGAIN.
- There were no complaints about such conditions during Tea Party rallies where more people rallied at one Tea Party gathering than all of the Wall Street rallies combined.
- I'm of the opinion that some of the protesters do have a point. Even many in the finance sector were disturbed by what happened in the last three years. But they appear to be selective in their outrage. Few are targeting the Obama administration. Few are targeting Congress. And even fewer are targeting millionaires and billionaires they happen to like and admire. In short, they appear confused.
- Lionel Beehner, writing in USA Today, said of these protesters, "Protests cannot look too much like a bunch of preppy college kids (code, by the way, for all white---me) or bedraggled Abbie Hoffmans...The Tea Party movement, at least, had a clear message (correction Lionel, they still have a clear message---me)...What are we left with? A growing (perhaps) movement with much media interest, unclear goals and a relatively narrow demographic makeup..."
- I wonder how many Americans are concerned that some Democrats and even Pres. Obama want to circumvent the Constitution to get their initiatives through. Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr., actually said Pres. Obama should declare a "national emergency" and bypass Congress regarding the jobs bill. In fact, he said, "We're not going to wait for Congress." And Pres. Obama himself told his advisers to push through the stimulus projects without pesky "congressional authorization."---Daily Caller
- Most polls now (some taken before this week's debate) show Cain either even or "leap frogging" over Romney. Does this mean Herman actually has some staying power?
- How bad has our foreign policy with Iran fallen? Former CIA officer Reuel Gerecht, of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies said the plot we intercepted this week shows Iran does not fear us. He added, "They don't believe we'd militarily respond and don't fear any sanctions..." (you know what they think of those sanctions? They're laughing at them---me).
- There is some good news. Rosie O'Donnell's show on OWN TV is tanking. After just two nights, her numbers fell 36%. Maybe most Americans are not that stupid, but then again, "Jersey Shore" is still a hit.
