"As spontaneous as a bowel movement.."

I wanted to get my bets down early on this one. First, here are some pictures of the OWS (Occupy Wall Street) protesters by the London Daily Mail:
The guy in the top picture? s taking a dump on a police car, of course. What would you expect from a protest against the harsh realities by those who believe society owes them something?

Of course, you don't see a lot of pictures of the squalid environs up til now. That has not been the big story, but one suspects the worm is about to turn. They have been in that park for three weeks now and it has gotten weirder and weirder.

And the usual suspects who dissed the Tea Party assemblies as being an astro-turfed assembly of Nazi Terrorist are getting behind these folks. The terminally stupid ex-Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi applauds their spontaneity, and Obama give them shout-outs and winks.

"Far out! What's it called?"

The squalor that these Neo-Comms are now languishing in is reminiscent of that wonderful sequence from the Woodstock movie. (Embedding disabled; go here to enjoy.)

But it appears, slowly, inexorably, remorselessly, the worm is turning. The unkempt masses have become a paria and this little temper tantrum by these indolent, spoiled neo-luddites is being regarded as a noisy, smelly, inconvenient nuisance by the an increasing number. A commendable column by Michael Goodwin of the New York Post nails it dead-sloid-erfect:

They doth protest too much
Even as desperate Pander-crats, including the president, continue to baby-talk the Wall Street hooligans, some of whom have violently attacked police, Mayor Bloomberg gets the point and tone just right.
“What they’re trying to do is take the jobs away from people working in this city,” the mayor told radio man John Gambling Friday. “And some of the labor unions, the municipal unions that are participating, their salaries come from the taxes paid by the people they are trying to vilify.”
Sanity also comes from readers. Sheri Rosen said she works downtown, at 111 Broadway, and is sick of the filth and mayhem.
“We work very hard every day for not that much money,” she writes. “We don’t camp out at a park and act like animals by urinating and stealing milk from the coffee vendors that are also trying to make a living.”
She blasted Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Comptroller John Liu for supporting the demonstrators, saying, “True New Yorkers who work hard for their money won’t forget this on Election Day.”
By the way, Mr Goodwin precedes these remarks with a chilling main feature of that column entitled "Aimless Obama walks alone" that paints an out-of-touch and incommunicado president who fails to interact with his staff and cabinet in an almost Nixonian manner (citation linked above; emphasis added):
The gist is this: President Obama has become a lone wolf, a stranger to his own government. He talks mostly, and sometimes only, to friend and adviser Valerie Jarrett and to David Axelrod, his political strategist.

Everybody else, including members of his Cabinet, have little face time with him except for brief meetings that serve as photo ops. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner both have complained, according to people who have talked to them, that they are shut out of important decisions.

President Obama has become a lone wolf, a stranger to his own government.

The president’s workdays are said to end early, often at 4 p.m. He usually has dinner in the family residence with his wife and daughters, then retreats to a private office. One person said he takes a stack of briefing books. Others aren’t sure what he does.

If the reports are accurate, and I believe they are, they paint a picture of an isolated man trapped in a collapsing presidency. While there is no indication Obama is walking the halls of the White House late at night, talking to the portraits of former presidents, as Richard Nixon did during Watergate, the reports help explain his odd public remarks.

Obama conceded in one television interview recently that Americans are not “better off than they were four years ago” and said in another that the nation had “gotten a little soft.” Both smacked of a man who feels discouraged and alienated and sparked comparisons to Jimmy Carter, never a good sign.

Blaming the country is political heresy, of course, yet Obama is running out of scapegoats. His allies rarely make affirmative arguments on his behalf anymore, limiting themselves to making excuses for his failure. He and they attack Republicans, George W. Bush, European leaders and Chinese currency manipulation -- and that was just last week.

..these state of affairs -- the OWS post-Woodstock anti-capitalist hippies and the ineffective class warrior POTUS -- are the absolute antithesis of the Skittle-crapping utopia that was predicted by the left when this clown was inaugurated.

And, if The Pantload starts retreating any more into his bunker, can one of those You Tube Hitler parodies be too far behind?

Call me paranoid but...
I'll try to keep this short because I need to get back to creating fashionable tinfoil hats ;)

Remember when NC governor Bev Perdue made comments a week or so ago about suspending elections (and she was not kidding).

Suspending elections? Here? Impossible, most people would say... but it got me thinking about how would it be possible for them to suspend elections?

Now I understand why Obama, Biden, Pelosi, and others like them are encouraging the Occupy groups. If/when the crowds get (more) violent and that violence spreads, they can declare martial law.

Bingo. No elections.


This is going to get ugly, TWP.

Ima,

Whoa! Quick on the draw there. Barely got this one up and you're on the dime!

That's the speculation, ma'am, and he may get his way at the cost of another American Revolution. But I'd love to see him put a stop to such institutions as the Constitution (I know, I know) and free and open elections that have survived over 220 years and a civil war.

First the Anti-Christ, now the Anti-Lincoln?

As "W" said, "Bring it on!"

I thank my feed reader for bringing me new content quickly!

I would not be surprised to see revolution. I live near Huntsville, AL. We have very low unemployment, low cost of living, low property taxes. It's a pretty nice place to live. We're starting to have the Occupy protests downtown. That is unbelievable to me.

The TEA Party protests were civil and nonviolent. I don't think these Occupy protests will be. There's already been violence in some cities and I predict it will get worse.

I'm not as prepared as I'd like to be.

The American people are starting to see the Pantload and the Little Crappers on Wall Street for what they really are ... takers and communists.

If the left is attempting to eliminate elections via marshall law, they will be up against about 80% of the American people, not good odds.

I'd like to see that...

Good point, Fred. I think Breitbart had a comment recently about those of us who are non-violent but who are armed and willing to defend our Constitution.
