This health hazard and social menace is what the Left regards as America's next great political cause?
As the tents were coming down at McPherson Square, the dead rats and mice being retrieved, the urine and feces and filthy bedding disposed of by District of Columbia employees dressed in hazardous-materials suits like their contemporaries at Fukushima, I thought of the left-wing press. You see, I read the left-wing press. Not the urban throwaway rags, but I read the Nation, the Progressive, the American Prospect, and more -- I read them all. They have been raving for months about the exciting prospect of a great wave of reform coming out of the Occupiers' Movement. It was here to stay, and for a while silly old me took them seriously.
Not the "Masturbate for Peace" movement, which made its rude appearance in Madison, Wisconsin, nor the "Urinate and Defecate Against World Hunger" crowd, who occasionally made headlines in Manhattan. Rather, I mean the-out-of-work Ph.D.s in Romance Languages or the mild mannered, middle-class schoolteachers, who the left-wing press kept coming across midst the delusional rabble. The left-wing journalists interviewed them. To read their reports one would think that this Occupy Movement really was sweeping America, rather than on its last legs and being shut down. Their end was coming for very good reasons, I might add.

Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.
They accomplished their mission. Get the national discussion off of the deficit and credit rating downgrade and on to “fairness” and the perceived slights of the 99%.
Of course the Left is dismissive of the Tea Party; it is reportedly fascist, white supremist, comprised of tax paying citizens who do not want to be unemployed nor overtaxed, and is disgustingly neat at its rallies - leaving not so much as a pile of rubbish or whiff of excrement.
The moronic left backing this BOWEL MOVEMENT will go down as another is a series of possibly the most IDIOIC POLITICAL DECISIONS ever conceived. Any wonder the obama led socialist democrat party is collasping faster than ERIC WITHHOLDER can DELETE his FAST and FURIOUS emails.
No tents in sight.
Karl Marx was laughed at and mocked, too. Hitler was tossed into a cell and branded a lunatic.
In the end they were responsible for the slaughter of millions.
You are correct....there is a method to this madness...and it's not funny and it's going to get uglier by the day.
