Occupy activists stake camp at Obama office
Breitbart ^ | Dec 17, 2011 | N/A

Posted on 12/17/2011 4:49:50 PM PST by Jet Jaguar

A half dozen Occupy Des Moines activists are setting up a camp outside President Barack Obama's campaign headquarters in Iowa and are vowing to stay there around the clock. The Occupy protestors rallied on Saturday against military spending and then some walked to the office for Obama's re-election bid. No one was there and the doors were locked.

The protestors say Obama staffers aren't listening to them and they will stay until they are satisfied. They have set up two tents and put up a sign on the door declaring it "Obama's former headquarters."

The activists say they want Obama to cut the U.S. military budget by half and "dismantle our U.S. military empire" to create jobs.

Fortunately for them, that's what Obama wants too

Yes they want money to go to college and they want to cut the military, they are too stupid to understand it is the military that ensures their right to go to college.

If they want to change the budget, why aren’t they trying to Occupy Congress, or at least the House?

Just wait until they have some real Iowa winter (unless global warming has improved things ;-) ). Fifty years ago my first Iowa winter had a solid week of 26 or 27 below nights and days that never went above 21 below, with 30 + mph winds. SOme fun camping out.

If they go after Obama they need to be forewarned...step aside, go home, or be executed. This is the Obama controlled USA, and not Russia, China, Iran or Syria. We have rules here and we do not accept public protests against Obama.

Get the address of this place and we can send them pizza so they'll never leave.
Kinda like strays. Include a thank you note from Obama.

I say we send them some tents and sleeping bags, maybe a few cases of Wolf brand chili and some japalenos. But no toilet paper ;)
