    I feel a little slow on the uptake, the baggers have a three year advantage over us of the 99%.

    Why didn't Joe the Plumbers Union start this in 2008?

    1. emmelemm

      Because if their signs are spelled correctly, they're clearly part of the ELITE and not real Amurrikans(tm).

    At least we can be pretty sure the occupados aren't racist assholes like the teabaggers – amiright?

    1. bureaucrap

      Based on the video feed, it is a sit in that looks like america. The demographics actually look pretty impressively diverse. Camera work s*&ks tho.

  3. SayItWithWookies

    In three weeks they've gone from invisible to a horrible marxist-hippie threat — which is pretty good considering they don't have a major news network (or a network with "news" in its name) goosing the coverage 24/7.

    I have to talk my guild ( American society for Lonely Engineers) into hopping on this band wagon I’m sure we will get a good turn out if it doesn’t conflict with Star Trek reruns.

    Hey! They forgot the United Steelworkers (maybe not local to NYC but worth mentioning anyway):
    Leo W. Gerard, International President of the United Steelworkers (USW), North America's largest industrial union with 1.2 million active and retired members, today issued the following statement in support of the Occupy Wall Street protest movement:
    "The United Steelworkers (USW) union stands in solidarity with and strongly supports Occupy Wall Street. The brave men and women, many of them young people without jobs, who have been demonstrating around-the-clock for nearly two weeks in New York City are speaking out for the many in our world. We are fed up with the corporate greed, corruption and arrogance that have inflicted pain on far too many for far too long." http://www.usw.org/media_center/news_articles?id=

    I don't see the IWW on the list! And they endorse the Occupados on their Website! Wobblies now, Wobblies forever!

  7. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Great, now the unions are involved. I'm sure I'll be seeing video of their violence in front of the palm trees that line Wall Street on FOX News this evening.

    How is it that nobody in the live-stream is wearing goggles?
    The air must be thick with hacky sacks.
    Somebody's gonna lose an eyeball.
    Maybe they got a (unionized) ophthalmologist on call?

    Quick, somebody check and see if Pete Seeger is still alive. Sounds like his kind of scene.

    1. Come here a minute

      Somebody check if Bob Dylan is still alive. Sounds like a scene he'll want to avoid.

    Well at least it looks drier than it must have been a few days ago. Given how tarps were forbidden that would otherwise protect tech & equipment, it's gratifying to see on-the-ground vid capture hasn't been deterred. And with our help it can be passed along.

    AFL-CIO (AFSCME): whiners
    United NY: weed smokers
    Strong Economy for All Coalition: bongo drummers
    Working Families Party: hippies
    TWU Local 100: crybabies
    SEIU 1199: red-titted commies
    . . .

    We should organize a Wonkette care package…
    Pizza Coupons, Truck Nutz, and Fetus Jars for all!

    I think I'm gonna roll a big fatty, break out the headphones, fire up the turntable, and put on me some "Blows Against the Empire." Or "Volunteers." Or both.
