Boston finally ousted its dirty smelly hippies from its park, but not before Occupy had wrecked the place, just as they wrecked Portlands city parks, Zuccotti Park in New York and just about everywhere else they parked their fat, lazy butts.
Dan OBrien of the Boston Herald described the mess:
The Utopian dreamers of Occupy Boston are leaving behind a disgusting field of filth on the formerly scenic Rose Kennedy Greenway, where trees will have to be replanted, grass resodded, sprinklers repaired or replaced and the entire area power-hosed in a massive cleanup that could take weeks.
Were close to the end of it, which is very good news. Soon, the park can be repaired and open to the general public, Nancy Brennan, executive director of the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, said late yesterday. We hope everyone makes a voluntary decision, and this can be a good, dignified end.
The conservancy has been pushing the city to take action to remove the protesters, sending a letter to Mayor Thomas M. Meninos office last month expressing frustration at rampant deterioration of the site, plus health and safety issues, including disturbing instances of drug use and interference of a farmers market. A judge this week lifted a restraining order on the city, giving it the green light to boot them out
Brennan said the grass, which has turned into a mud pit, will need to be completely resodded, and she fears several trees that have been damaged will have to be replanted.
Three or four trees might be lost. Theres browning of the foliage, and there are some broken and bent limbs, she said. Part of what we need to do is check on the root systems, and that is just going to take a little bit of time.
Brennan also expects that the sprinkler system was damaged so much it will have to be repaired or replaced. Also in need of replacement are about 20 percent of the shrubbery and the pebbles from a pedestrian walkway that runs along Purchase Street.
As Glenn Reynolds noted: By contrast, Ill note once more that the Tea Party protesters left things cleaner when they departed.
Perhaps because the Tea Party crowd actually knows what work is like and that city workers are not maids, but rather expensive clean-up crews. Working has a way of teaching one the value of money, which is why on their 16th birthday, we should hand every teenager in America an apron and a mop and assign them to work at the nearest fast-food joint for $7.50 an hour, 40 hours a week.
Now let us get a few things straight about who these loony goons are. For the most part they are spoiled rotten brats who took out huge loans to pay for four years of self-indulgence at some over-rated liberal arts college. Somehow, they were able to spend a few months in the fall camping out and protesting against the working class while not working themselves.
They are in that upper 1% who do not have to work.
Wall Street brokers do. 12-16 hours a day, 5 days a week. Maybe they do some work at home over the weekend. Much of their pay is based on merit called bonuses as if the money werent earned. Its a tough business. The risks are many. The rewards great.
I get a paycheck every week. Guess what? How big a bonus some stockbroker gets or doesnt get has zero impact on my pay stub.
The Democratic Party indulged the Occupy Army this fall. Lets not reward the party with a re-election next year, no matter how hard we must pinch our noses in the voting booth.
I still have never seen an explanation of the OWS purpose. Is it about communism?
Here you go:
The below is IMO mandatory reading. The Occupukes will be back, perhaps with their anarchist faction armed by Holders guns, who knows.
The thread on FR, maybe more info there:
Oops, should have posted this too, here’s a thread on which I discuss the usefulness of the Occupukes, in a list of other things, read comment 155 first:
It’s about time somebody said it.
Of course they are truly way less than 1% but let’s just round it up to avoid having to explain fractions and decimals to them. How anyone can have any sympathy for the ill-mannered jerks is a mystery to me. I have had hogs with better manners.
It is about the transfer of wealth from those who have earned it to those who have not under some warped sense of “fairness”.
Look at the source:
Occupy movement turns houses into homes!
The energy of Occupy Wall Street comes to Brooklyn
You really had to post that link, didn’t you? Luckily I have a strong constitution.
Good link. I’ll be passing it on.
Well let's put it this way - how deep do you want to go?
Just that one blog gives a clear picture of what the Occupukes are about. For some reason I got obsessed with OWSers and read everything I could about it for at least a month. I always want to know “the rest of the story”. It ain’t a pretty picture and it’s definitely part of the leftist plan to de-stablize the country. There is a strong anarchist element who just want to smash and burn. Held in check sort of, so far. Actually two Occupukes have been arrested for arson, one in Colorado Springs, IIRC - did a few millions dollars damage of a big building, another in Portland or actually I think it was Seattle. Freaks.
Why did Boston name the greenway after someone from Florida? Rose Kennedy was able to file her estate in Florida. It’s true she hadn’t set foot in Florida for over 12 years before her death. I don’t get it. It can’t be estate taxes, Kennedy’s love paying taxes.
