#1 Great News: Wall Street Occupiers Plan to Stay Until at Least 202511-07-2011, 08:43 AMNearly two months into the so-called “occupation” that the whole world is watching and laughing at, organizers of Occupy Wall Street claim they’ll now be occupying the streets of Lower Manhattan for the next 15 years.

“Maybe it’s a typo?” said Patricia Moore, 58, of Cedar Street, chair of Community Board 1’s quality-of-life committee.
“It will be Occupy Wall Street’s grandchildren. The community board will have to fight to build a school over there.
“It would be bad enough if it’s 2015. But if they keep getting donations like they are, who knows?”
The leaderless anti-greed movement has racked up $750,000 in donations from supporters and unions and gotten space for storage and portable toilets from the United Federation of Teachers.
“Noooo ! Not 2025,” groaned Mohammed, 38, a food-cart operator at Cedar Street and Broadway. “It was good business [before the protest], and now it’s so slow. 2025, I don’t think so. Never! I hope next month they’ll be gone.”
Their Web site suggests the radicals won’t be learning much over the next 14 years, as “Radical Economics 101” appears on the agenda every Sunday between now and then — with no sign that “Radical Economics 202” or “303” is in the offing. ...

Fantastic news! I hope they survive until this time next year so Obama and his fellow morons can savor the yummy, yummy Schadenfreude Sandwich they'll have to eat for their support for these worthless pukes.

Tiananmen Square comes to mind.....
Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

Even the homeless are sick of them.
Part of the problem, some homeless argue, they feel they’ve lost their freedom.
“They got their own security, they act like the police,” one man tells Lopez. “Anytime you do anything they say you can’t do this and that … and we’re saying ‘you’re not the police.’”
