“27.8 TONS OF DEBRIS IN OAKLAND!”

Is that counting the social debris that CREATED the material debris?

Police are finally cleaning up OWS due to an unequal distribution of garbage.

27.8 tons of waste diveded by the average weight (US male / female average = 117lbs) = 314 protestors give or take.

Sounds like downtown Mogadishu - the liberal dream of turning the United States into a turd-world country is becoming a reality.

I love this~!

It is all the failures of Socialism captured in high speed! like a time-lapse photo of 40 years squeezed down to 2 months.

First the exhilaration and chanting.

Then the lazy people sitting around waiting to be fed, crapping all over themselves (no one ‘assigned’ to wash them, I guess)

Followed by workers strike for less overtime (the food servers)

Next complaints that monies being donated are not ‘shared’ equally- the elites among them decided to keep it and spend it on their choice

Then the complaints that some are eating who dont ‘deserve’ it (the people who want the government to feed the homeless don’t want to feed the homeless)

Lawlessness (crapping on police cars, rapes, theft, violence and now murder)

Then desease and pestilence.

I was expecting conscription into working on the food service line, followed by lynching those who steal food when they are hungry when there is not enough left to ‘share’

But I guess the Democraps in charge are letting the police clean it up before it gets just TOO embarrassing for them to distance them selves from it

27.8 TONS OF DEBRIS IN OAKLAND....

These youngsters should be ashamed....during the 70’s, a typical Deadhead crowd smoked twice that amount during any three day concert and for the most part, left very little trash.

On CNN this morning, when I heard 278 TONS, I called and asked my friednd if she heard it too. Yep. 278 tons! So, I found the CNN article, and yes, it said 278 tons, too! So, just as I was posting the article, that little “DOT” was put between the seven and eight. LOL!

A ‘lib’ friend yesterday was defending the protester’s mess - and she said only 1% of the protesters are leaving trash behind. Sure.............

"We believe that the cynical use of sexual violence and health concerns are opportunistic ways for the mayor to ... attack our movement," said one protester, according to CNN affiliate WPVI."

Translation: Ok so a woman was raped and we are endangering the public. So what. Who cares anyhow? Our movement is much more important than a little rape and a few sick people.

Why did the liberal mayors oust the Occupier/scumbags this week?
self | 15 November 2011 | self

Posted on Tuesday, November 15, 2011 7:35:12 AM by Grampa Dave

Why have so many major cities turned on the Occupiers?

The liberal mayors/leaders of Oakland, Portland, New York City and other cities, this week have decided that the Occupier/scumbags are not welcome. Across the nation liberal mayors have sent in cops in their cities , to move the scumbags out of their encampments and tear down their encampments.

So what has happened and why this week?

Did the mayors finally wake and realized that these scumbags were not the 99% of he/she/its in white hats?

Did the merchants in the impacted areas finally convince the mayors that their businesses were being devastated and would not have a lot of sales tax $‘s to give to the cities due to their lost business?

Did the mayors finally listen to Public Health Doctors/Nurses and others that these encampments were huge germ/virus pools that could threaten large sections of the city’s population not involved?

Did the daily rapes/murders/robberies/fights in the encampments finally wake up the mayors?

Did the mayors fear a massive backlash from independent and working democrat voters in their cities or even recalls?

There was probably a lot of the above and other factors that influenced the mayors.

How about another factor. Did the DNC run focus groups of working voters in those cities and find out that the Occupier scumbags in each city were probably costing the Democrats votes across the nation?

Well, something happened, and it probably was not a coincidence, that this week, the left wing mayors of these liberal cities across America, decided to take out the Occupier Garbage, human and infectious garbage.

It would be appropriate, IMO, to dump their garbage at the Capitol Building, downtown Sacramento, for all the Liberal Elitist politicians to enjoy including the Governor.

The Capitol Building, in my opinion, is inhabited by politicians who crawled out of a Liberal sewer and who should feel quite at home among the garbage.

I dunno ‘bout the trash, but here in D.C. the protesters have killed all the grass in McPherson Square.

Of course, they’re lefties so little things like trashing the environment don’t matter. It’s just lucky that nothing corporate tore up the park so we don’t have to listen to an endless tirade about indifference and irresponsibility.

IF this were a Tea Party operation, we’d have complaints from the government union members about the Tea Party trying to take away their jobs, because the tea party campsites were left so pristine.

OK, so ID all the protestors, and since they feel that everyone should “pay their fair share”, bill them each an equal amount of the cleanup costs. If they dare object, rightly label them as hypocrites and jail them in lieu of fine!

I have family and friends in different parts of the world. I lived abroad for extended periods. Some visit quite often and young men’s favorite treat is target practicing, something that’s almost unavailable where they live.

They are informed about truths and more often than not, I get, but...but...your own TV, CNN International, said so and so...etc. They get quite shocked when I tell them that CNN international is anti-American and that the garbage they hear, which I used to hear for years, is NOT broadcasted on CNN Domestically!

I told people abroad that 0b0z0’s apology tour “coincided with and reinforced” what “American CNN’s” self-flogging culture is.

That’s the explanation to “internationally viral!”

Back to your wonderful post, if any one knows or hears about life under Communism, they will see how it really acts to destroy peoples’ fabrics and kill the golden geese!

>>>no one has ever accused me of having an opinion better than the “pants on the ground” guy before.<<<

Well, humble as you are, maybe you lucked out. Hehehe
