News and Opinion
Lefty tools make mockery of democracy
By Howie Carr | Sunday, October 9, 2011 | | Columnists

The Tea Party and Occupy Boston do have one thing in common — money.

The people in the Tea Party want to keep theirs and the panhandlers camping out on the Greenway want to steal it from them.

Maybe you’ve seen the rabble as you’ve driven by. They claim to be interested in “Corporate Greed,” but they’d settle for some corporate weed.

The fact that the national Democrats are trying to throw in with these layabouts tells you all you need to know about both groups.

The original mob, Occupy Wall Street, has issued a list of “demands,” which their fellow trust-funders in the media don’t like to mention. Here are a few of my favorites:

“Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.”

“Outlaw all credit-reporting agencies.”

“Bring American elections up to international standards.”

You know, like Venezuela, Iran, Russia and Hezbollah.

The Tea Party wants a balanced budget, and the media say they’re the extremists. These leeching losers in Dewey Square need 90 days observation at Bridgewater, and they’re the proud face of democracy.

They say they’ve been devastated by the recession, yet approximately 100 percent of them still worship Barack Obama, the architect of the fiasco.

Occupy Boston? They ought to go back to occupying their mothers’ basements.

All day long they bang drums and sometimes they sing protest songs. One of their favorites is by Dire Straits — “Money for Nothing.” They’re also partial to John Lennon: “All we are saying, is give us spare change.”

These are the people who during blizzards are described as “non-essential personnel.”

Do you know how difficult it is to get a permit to do anything in the city of Boston? You want to put a new door on your garage and City Hall inspectors are crawling all over you like cockroaches after you turn off the lights in the kitchen.

Yet these bums not only don’t have permits, they’re not getting charged for any of the services City Hall duns working people for. Permits? Hippies don’t need no stinkin’ permits.

In a few months, we’ve gone from grassroots to George Soros astroturf. From Arab Spring to Irish Spring.

It’s warm today, but winter’s coming. May I suggest that all the squatters in our local Obamaville lay a good supply of Sterno. Comes in handy for heating, and drinking.

Mumbles is scared witless by this rabble. He wants them to go away quietly. Who in their right mind ever goes near the Rose Kennedy “Greenway”. It's just another urban eyesore. The demonstrators are eliciting just about zero sympathy from people who have jobs, and even those looking for jobs. Sensible people are fed up with Utopian dreamers and their abettors in the media.

Soros is Romney’s partner.

Carr is for Romney ... and therefore Soros.

America does NOT need RINOs or Soros or those
who support either.

Soros and Romney? Doesn’t seem right...Romney isn’t that far left (ask liberals who would call him a Rethuglican). Howie is flavor of the week as to whom he supports, and I guess he’ll support the eventual nominee.

from today’s Herald

>>Mayor Thomas M. Menino said yesterday the clock — and the city’s welcome — are running out on Occupy Boston, the marching, chanting anti-corporate movement that commandeered part of the Rose Kennedy Greenway a week ago and turned a portion of the park into a tent city packed with protesters.

>>Relations between the city, police and the movement’s members have been amicable thus far, but Menino, for the first time since the Occupy Boston began, said yesterday there’s a limit on how long the demonstration should last.

>>“There will be a time when they’ll have to leave that location,” Menino told the Herald. Asked when the city might move to clear the park, he said: “We’ll make that decision in the near future.”
Protesters, in their eighth day of a demonstration that has no end in sight, marched from South Station into the tony Back Bay boutique district yesterday, asking tourists and bemused shoppers to join their ranks. Several marchers said Menino’s words won’t deter them.

>>“If he wants to send the police after us, that’s on him,” said Noah McKenna, 25, of Jamaica Plain. “We’ll see where public opinion goes. We’re not going to be silenced by Menino. This is bigger than Menino.”

>>Menino, while saying the group’s message is “somewhat scrambled,” did concede that the protesters have won the hearts of the masses. “For the most part, they do have the public’s sympathy,” he said. “America has to change a little bit.”

>>Unrest in Dewey Square seemed to grow yesterday, with police asking the assembly to move several new tents pitched on the park’s northeast corner. Occupants, in a town-meeting style assembly, said they took the order as “a provocation which will set the tone for things to come” and said the police “are getting mad because it’s getting bigger than they wanted.”
They promised they would try to hold the land, even if it meant defying police orders.

>>The group so far has carefully avoided provoking police, with some protesters reminding others that lawmen belong to labor unions and are therefore among those the movement represents. But some marchers said they would not voluntarily comply if police tried to remove them from the park.

>>“The only thing that’s going to clear people is change,” said Rachel Dyer, 26, of Roxbury. “There are enough people willing to fight, and that’s what this is all about.”

Another protester invited the mayor himself to spend some time with them.

“You know what would be great?” asked protester David Lehnert, 18, of Framingham. “If he came down and spent a night in a tent.”

“It’s only been a week,” said Lehnert, who has camped out on the Greenway since the first night. “He should relax.”

I think Howie likes to go for (perceived) winners, and he perceives Romney as the frontrunner, which is at least premature. He has done more than anyone else I know to bring out the idiocy of RomneyCare!

But I'm really hoping he can get numbers on what the "occupation" is costing the state and city, at least in money -- the aggravation is another thing!

Cantabrigians arrested – ain’t that rich?
By Howie Carr | Wednesday, October 12, 2011 | | Columnists

I have some bad news for the 99 percenters down at Occupy Boston.

Comrades, I fear you have been infiltrated by the one percent, the super rich.

I have been studying the Boston police reports, and most of these hippies, er revolutionaries, are from the ’burbs. Not the city, but the bosky dells, especially Cambridge.

Ever hear of Dunster Street, comrade? It’s right there in the middle of Harvard Square. The cops early Monday lugged a resident of 101 Dunster St., age 23, and he was “white non-Hispanic.” But then, aren’t all of the 99 percent?

Oppressors. It’s odd, too. Those arrested are almost all under 25 ... or over 55.

Did you hear Mayor Mumbles Menino yesterday morning? He was trying to say something nice about the spoiled rich kids crowding his jails. He began by saying, “These are hard-wo —” But then he corrected himself, describing them as concerned citizens or some such thing.

Here’s another lad, age 20, white non-Hispanic naturally, and he lists his address as 208 Lowell Mail Center, Cambridge. That’s a funny street address, no?

I Googled it and it came back to the Lowell House, on the campus of Harvard University. It’s described on the Crimson Web site as a “lovely neo-Georgean building” with a tower that “contains a set of Russian Bells that come from the St. Danilov Monastery in Moscow.”

Did I mention that “each suite has a ‘private’ bathroom.” Unlike the Nashua Street Jail.

I’m sure they all took the Red Line into the city. After all, they don’t call it the Red Line for nothing. Despite their protestations about the injustice of the American economic system, it appears that few of the suburbanites from the 781 and 508 area codes are going hungry. Here’s a 20-year-old child from Needham, 6 feet tall, 230 pounds. Maybe he can take off a few pounds if he has to eat jail food for a while.

Another Cantabrigian lugged: This one’s 34 years old, from Suffolk Street. I’ll bet I’ve seen him running a red light on his bicycle on Mass Ave. He, too, weighs 230, and has “part-grey” hair. Being a hippie will prematurely age you, especially in this economy.

Here’s another Cambridge resident, age 21, from Sacramento Street. That’s a little north of the campus, Porter Square territory. His first name is “Jasper.” Not too many townies from North Cambridge named Jasper. He is, needless to say, a white male.

You have to love their signs. How about “Corporate Greed is Not My Creed.” No, it doesn’t have to be, if Mumsy and Pater set up a trust fund for you and are willing to pay $50,000-plus a year to send you to Harvard — plus bail money.
