Here is the link to the just-issued-warning to Japanese residents and visitors in New York City by their Consulate to stay away from those "Occupy" people. LINK
Mr. Obama, while in Asia as we speak, still supports this street movement now assailed as dangerous by diplomatic services of major US allies?
Get a load of THIS!
Mic check! Mic check!!
Of course its dangerous.
Yes...of course they are dangerous. Why didn’t embassies take this step weeks ago? You wouldn’t catch me near these infested places.
I was in Spain last summer and saw the same tent city crap in Barcelona. You couldn’t have paid me enough to enter the park.
the OWS protest area is the safest area in Manhattan, lower Manhattan already had the highest density of police per square mile in the US outside of the Washington DC Mall, and the Occupy Protest area has tripled the numbers of law enforcement in the immediate vicinity.
I like the last line of the warning, ‘if you see and hear a commotion, definitely don’t go over and be a looky-lo.’
This isn’t your daughter’s Tea Party.
The Wall street area is teeming with cops now. Even the bull has his own NYPD guard. The other day, school was closed in New Jersey so I went there with a friend and our two teenaged daughters. It was the highlight of our day , more fun than Central Park, skating at Rock Center and seeing Danielle Radcliff in "How to Succeed."
After getting Broadway show tickets at the South Street Seaport TKTS (no line) we strolled over to Zuccotti Park. It was like a street fair, a party atmosphere. We got some great photos including one of the girls with someone in a Guy Fawkes mask. These guys could make a fortune charging $5 for photos like that.
There were some vendors selling OWS tee shirts which I briefly considered buying as a gag gift for my husband. But as we looked at the tee-shirts, a protestor casually walked by with a sign saying "these vendors do not contribute to Occupy Wall Street."
When we were leaving, I asked a group of New York's finest if I could take their picture. They happily obliged.
All in all it's a great tourist attraction. The city should try to make money off it. LOL!
Right Now, I would feel safer in Tel Aviv than in NYC.
Actually, I have ALWAYS felt safer in Tel Aviv than in NYC! LOL!
At first glance I thought the daily “History - 70 years” thread had accidientally gotten posted in Breaking News.
Please reconsider Your Emperor. They're really not so bad once you get to know them like I do.
Because as long as the residents of Obomaville were getting a free ride, they were content.
Now that they've lost their free ride fix, they're going to get even more crazy.
A bud of mine from the decade and a half I spent in Japan had gotten a transfer from his law firm in New York to their office in Tokyo. I asked him what stood out as most different between the two cities. ‘In Tokyo,’ he said, ‘the cab drivers speak much better English.’
Were you there?
Couple of people I know are young NYPD foot patrol officers. They LOVE this assignment, most overtime they’ve ever had... even though it’s the smallest protest they ever were assigned to patrol/guard. The OWS crowd has been overall non-violent to those not involved in the drama.
That area when not hosting a protest is probably the safest area on NYC, Zuccotti Park turned into a gilded cage as soon as NYPD got a grasp of the protest.
People are probably safer being near the Fukushima Plant, than being close to the occupiers.
” Right Now, I would feel safer in Tel Aviv than in NYC.
Actually, I have ALWAYS felt safer in Tel Aviv than in NYC! LOL!”
Not so odd, really.....it’s NYC.....land of the “spree “ and home of the knave : )
Gee Louize I think of Godzilla joke here LOL!
Well Godzilla be better bodyguard than Occupy people LOL!
So it safer in Tel Viv than NYC LOL!
I think Tel Viv safer than Compton CA LOL!
Definately; it’s basically stating that pockets of the US are too unsafe for citizens of their nation, similar to when the US told its citizens to avoid Egypt.
“So what happens to the donated $20,000? Who gets to pocket the cash? The DNC?”
I walked around the OLD CITY in Jerusalem, and took the public transportation alone, as my hubby was back at the hotel with “Hezekiah’s Revenge”.
I would not DREAM of doing the same thing in NYC. Of course, the last time I was THERE, Dinkins was the mayor.
Ha Ha Ha!
NYC city sucks .
In Tokyo, he said, the cab drivers speak much better English.
LOL ...As I a 26 year resident of Japan I can assure you that this is untrue . But I get your point . : )
Especially now, with the occupiers.
” Of course, the last time I was THERE, Dinkins was the mayor.”
What a buffoon that guy was : )
The occupiers have plunged the city back into the cesspool it became under that buffoon.
The idea that NYC would allow a “ Victory Mosque” after that horror of 9/11 speaks volumes about its inhabitants : )
It does indeed.
The mosque near my house was raided by the FBI, by the way. It seems it was funneling great piles of money to the Pakistani Taliban.
The Coral Springs Mosque is also a “Victory Mosque”. It was erected a few blocks from the last known residence of Mohamed Ata.
So far, I seem to be the only one in S. FL who has made this connection, and of course, people think I am nuts for saying it. (sigh)
