Is there a lesson to be learned here? The kitchen staff volunteering to feed the Zuccotti Park protestors have been providing for free top-quality meals to OWS protestors and outsiders who are not officially part of the unofficial movement. Kitchen staff no like.
My guess is they wouldnt be happy if I stopped by for a free lunch of organic chicken, vegetables and sheeps-milk-cheese salad either. From the New York Post.
The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a counter revolution yesterday because theyre angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for professional homeless people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.
The point is not that they are homeless or ex-cons. Im guessing the kitchen staff is no longer willing to serve high-quality meals to people who are not down for the struggle and contributing in some way to the movement. In other words, protest like you mean it or you should leave.
To show they mean business, the kitchen staff refused to serve any food for two hours yesterday in order to meet with organizers to air their grievances, sources said.
It looks like the organizers have refused to lock out the homeless and ex-cons. But they came up with a solution. EVERYONE SUFFERS.
For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheeps-milk-cheese salad.
They will also provide directions to local soup kitchens for the vagrants, criminals and other freeloaders who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day.
You cant have any of our free stuff, go elsewhere. Well give you a map.
Some protesters threatened that the high-end meals could be cut off completely if the vagrants and criminals dont disperse.
Unhappiness with their unwelcome guests was apparent throughout the day.
We need to limit the amount of food were putting out to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer.
A security volunteer added that the cooks felt overworked and underappreciated.
Many of those being fed are professional homeless people. They know what theyre doing, said the guard at the food-storage area.
I think there is a lesson or analogy somewhere in this story
I just cant seem to put a finger on it.
Taze them Bro’
all of them.
Yes, but that’s not the lesson. Here goes:
“Socialism: it’s OK until you run out of someone else’s organic chicken.”
Isn't it rich? The hypocrisy of these smelly hippies, urinating all over a private park while they demand that the wealthy share with them.
all of them.
Works for me! ;-)
Has anyone considered using Crop Dusters to spray the area with disinfectant?
I this with the recent rioting over in Oakland, CA as a sign that OWS has run out of steam.
So I guess they are going to have to switch from the "We are the 99%" motto.
Karma and Irony ... the twin sisters of “ain’t it a bitch”
They have $500K in the bank, Order some takeout for your people, the 99% is now the 1%
The police should have been actively motivating the bums, dopers, vagrants, and criminals to move into Occupy Wall Street protests from day one.

LOL! Pardon me, but don't bogart the Grey Poupon!
Greed among the poor—who would have thought?
Nothing so shows the banality and hypocrisy of the OWS movement as this story. Elitist radical chic gang denies nourishment to the truly needy.
If the idiots at Zuccotti Park wanted to do some good in this world why don’t they join the Peace Corps? Why don’t they use the money they collect to help babies born with cleft pallets? Why don’t they go to Appalachia and inner cities to teach children and adults how to read? What a bunch a greedy phonies.
I knew a woman that got picked up for drunk driving. She had to go to AA as part of her court proceedings. She said went to a Salvation Army AA meeting near her work, and was standing in line. One of the bums, noticing her clean appearance and apparel, helpfully told her "You're probably here for the AA meeting. It's in that room over there. This line is for the soup kitchen."
"No gourmet grub will clear-out OWS" - Me
Next; the OWS will Unionize and go "on strike".
You can't make this stuff up!
