New York metero contains 15 million people. There are probably more people there having appendectomies today than “protesting”.
From this comment thread.
My thoughts on “occupy” below the fold.
I liked reading Lex’s thoughts when the Occupy movement started in Chicago. The people seemed intelligent. Unfortunately it took just a couple of weeks for the entire movement to get co-opted by leftists and other agitators and now “Occupy” has officially jumped the shark. They are now disrupting traffic, creating unsanitary conditions, trashing parks, destroying private property and acting basically like a bunch of idiots. I was done with them a while ago, but I am thinking that most normal adults now are looking at these people and hoping they all just go home and take a bath at this point.
I believe that the arctic cold, unsanitary conditions and flu season will wipe “Occupy” out in the northern climates pretty soon, and we will only see “Occupy” in the West and South. Sorry San Diego and Miami.
It was a good idea, ruined by the same old claptrap idology of the left. When you have guys like Ayers giving lectures to the Occupiers, you know what is going to happen.
