I see a handful of protestors (nowhere near the Brooklyn Bridge) and they’re all busy videoing each other.

The Brooklyn Bridge? They took a wrong turn somewhere! It's nowhere near Wall St.

Why don't these idiots go home and do something useful like start a business or something! Hire some people! Become productive!

Protesters are taking over the Brooklyn Bridge

But... but... we bought this bridge, fair and square, from a nice Nigerian man on the Internet!

Why do they want no one to cross the bridge? They hate everyone who crosses the bridge? I thought they hated the Wall Street banksters.

They only way anyone will pay attention to them is if they get themselves arrested, so now they're making that happen.

Seriously, I have no idea what they are protesting or what they are trying to change.

Apparently they plan to “occupy” Lansing Michigan at some point as well.

January and February will be a special treat for them.

Last night on both O’Reilly and Hannity’s shows they had interviews with some of these protestors. They lack the ability to express why they are protesting and quite frankly the fact that they vote, drive cars and reproduce should scare the bleep out of all of us.

I’ve heard of knocking sense into somebody, but I don’t think a whack upside the head with a nightstick will do more for these folks aside from rattling their nose rings. Water cannons would be better...some of them look like they haven’t washed since Bush won his first term!

If Michael Moore joins them (on the bridge), it could be the tipping point.

Just sayin'.

I saw that. They were asked what they want to replace capitalism with and people in the crowd were saying “don’t tell them.”

Some have idiot hippie parents but the rest were indoctrinated in government schools.

These dopes were raised on “The Story of Stuff” and Bill Ayers’ curriculum.

They are brainwashed into wanting communism, but have no idea what it really is or how it worked in other countries.

Amazing, wasn’t it? My favorite was the guy who quit his job to come to the protest...to complain about lack of jobs.

By the way, your tagline is great!

Now airdrop some nice bubble bath into the East River, and force them off the bridge. Win, win.
