NEW YORK (AP) — Wall Street protesters scrubbed, mopped and picked up garbage at the corporate-owned park they have been occupying in an attempt to stave off a scheduled cleanup Friday that demonstrators suspect is a pretext to evict them.

While moving out mattresses and camping supplies, organizers were mixed on how they would respond when police arrive at the request of Zuccotti Park owners to help remove the occupiers from the public plaza so it can be cleaned.

It only took weeks and the threat of force to make them behave (at least fractionally) responsible.

It’s kinda funny. They act like petulant teenagers whose parents just made them clean their room or lose their XBox.

Wall Street protesters scrubbed, mopped and picked up garbage at the corporate-owned park.

That corporation recently received a $168.9 million energy loan from the government. BTW, The parent of this corporation, Brookfield Asset Management is a Brazilian based entity and the actual company that received the loan is Canadian, Brookfield Renewable Energy.

Wanna bet this has Soros fingerprints all over it?

The KOS kiddies are referring to it as a "public" park. Of course, those folks don't believe in private property...except their private property. That's different!

Actually, there’s a great four-star script for a movie here. A bunch of folks running off to New York City to protest....but they don’t have the slightest idea about the theme. Communists, socialists, democrats, environmentalists, pro-Cuba, pro-immigration reform, pro-Sandinista, anti-war, anti-designated hitter, pro-Dallas Cowboys, anti-Bush, anti-Cheney, anti-whaling, etc, etc.

Then you toss in various people who meeting up with new boyfriends, new girlfriends, new dope dealers, new union supporters, and new communists.

Toss in some serious bacteria which will screw up your system and require heavy doses of prescription drugs.

Toss in New York City crime, New York City Hollywood pretenders coming up to shake hands, MSNBC media guys doing interviews every eight minutes, and the fresh smell of dog or human waste each morning.

I think you have a great movie. The title....Invite to a Flea Party.

” The title....Invite to a Flea Party. “

Since the (carefully unspoken) intent is to prop up a dead Presidency, shouldn’t the title be —

“Weekend and Bammy’s”??

It's painfully obvious to any "journalist" who wants to dig a little further than simply reading leftist press releases. I wonder, has Glenn Beck said anything along these lines.

It is. Sort of.

As I understand it, the space is privately owned but was dedicated to public use in a past real estate transaction.

Surely you jest?! Shall I start with all of the "hate Beck" lines before noting the incredible amount of research his staff is involved with?

Zuccotti Park, formerly called Liberty Plaza Park, is a 33,000-square-foot privately owned, publicly accessible park in Lower Manhattan in New York City. The park was created in 1968 by United States Steel, after the property owners negotiated its creation with city officials, and named Liberty Plaza Park and situated beside One Liberty Plaza. It is located between Broadway, Trinity Place, Liberty Street and Cedar Street. The park’s northwest corner is across the street from Four World Trade Center. It has been popular with local tourists and financial workers.

The park was heavily damaged in the September 11 attacks and subsequent recovery efforts of 2001. The plaza was later used as the site of several events commemorating the anniversary of the attacks. After renovations in 2006, the park was renamed by its current owners, Brookfield Office Properties, after company chairman John Zuccotti.

Unfortunately I don't get to listen to him as much , but I'm sure he's all over this. It's pretty much what he predicted last year.

It bothers me that at the same time they state that the Zuccoti Park OWNERS have requested the police to remove these people from what IS private property, they still claim the space is a “public plaza”. It’s either one, or the other. It cannot be both.

This point needs to be made abundantly clear to these people, and all their supporters who seem to think that these rules are somehow a violation of their right to assemble, and protest. In reality they are squatting on PRIVATE PROPERTY, without permission, and the owners have every right to demand that they ALL leave at once.

I’m honestly surprised that the folks who own Zucotti Park have let them stay as long as they have. No doubt there has been some real damage to the land itself as a result of these people’s actions. I suppose they don’t care about that though, because they figure the owners have more than enough money to repair anything they destroyed.

What I’d REALLY like to see is the owners go after the organizers PERSONALLY for any costs associated with repairing any damage to the property itself.

I have been watching him on my laptop but just ordered the Roku device so I can see it on the tele. Starting to go Galt on regular (DTV) broadcast. Paying way to much for the few channels I regularly watch. Just gotta figure out a way to get football and racing.

No cleaning today. They're running around trying to clean up after themselves now. They put the word out for re enforcements last night on the lefty sites. They are suppose to have some big march tomorrow.
