Progressive :”path to renewal” littered with 70 dump trucks worth of filth…

November 14, 2011

Anyone read this NYT Op Ed? Yeah, I try to avoid them too. But this gem was in this weeks and I had to share

NYT: Following our recent financial calamity, a third progressive era is likely to be in the making…The young people in Zuccotti Park and more than 1,000 cities have started America on a path to renewal.

There you go people – the path to renewal is apparently paved in filth: poo, pee, trash, litter, ….from Oregon via Gateway Pundit

City officials needed 70 dump trucks to clean up the filth after the Occupy Portland squatters were removed this weekend from two downtown parks.

Um, weren’t there signs saying things along the lines of “STOP EVIL CORPORATIONS FROM POLLUTING OUR PLANET?” (Pirates Cove is amused….)

The fantasy football continues….

The new movement also needs to build a public policy platform…..the new progressive era will need a fresh and gutsy generation of candidates to seek election victories not through wealthy campaign financiers but through free social media…A new generation of leaders is just getting started

Two questions

  1. um, isn’t Google a ‘for profit’ company? and doesn’t Facebook run on top of for-profit telecom infrastructure? Since when is it “free” when you’re accessing “evil corporate profit making infrastructure” using “evil corporate profit making” devices?
  2. How is a movement with no specific demands who when presented with responses to their demands refuses to bite (job opportunities? I WANT TO BE CEO!!!) and who can’t elect a leader other than a dog “getting started?”
  3. Ok, Three questions – what did this guy smoke in the ’60s?

    But, but… social media will certainly outpace the ability of people to donate money! Really!

    Maybe all the dump stuff was supposed to compost into the soil. Even better… if these people are so poor and in need, why didn’t they take their tents with them?

      Ouch! good point. Did you notice the guy who said they’re in for the long haul because “people are homeless” without any irony that Occupy WS is refusing to …..wait for it….FEED THE HOMELESS!!!
