NEW YORK — During the final moments of what was meant to be a weekend of rejuvenation for the Occupy Wall Street movement, a key organizer looked to call it quits.

Aaron Black is a protester who emerged in recent months to take up the mantle of leadership within a movement that prides itself on being “leaderless.” He expressed his own frustration with Occupy Wall Street in a tone of defeat.

The thing that Colbert did with the Occupier who calls herself “Ketchup” is hysterical.In that encounter I learned what a “female bodied person” is and how they differ from “females”.

While in Tampa, and then in Charlotte for the Democrats’ convention, Black openly expressed his support for Barack Obama, even insisting that occupiers did not really want to protest against the president....To anarchist insiders who hate both political parties, he represents the Democratic Party’s co-opting of Occupy Wall Street.

Co-opting - or sponsoring?

It became too much like actually having to work for a living.

First, ENNUI set in. . . Then, the filth and uncomfortable living arrangements became worse than it was in their parents’ basement; Then, the chefs got tired of catering to vegetarian palates and cooking gourmet meals; only to eventually have the picky “Occupy” crowd murmuring and complaining, then having food fights and, finally, throwing the food at the chefs; Then, it got COLD; Now, it’s getting hot; the Obama money has run out . . . but, most of all, it was the ENNUI! Amazing what a little ENNUI can do to the academics.

After you’ve written down anarchist on a resume....you tend to find a barrier between yourself and a job...even at McDonalds. I’m guessing that his cousin probably offered him a stock-the-shelves position with Piggly Wiggly, in hopes of getting him back into dad’s house and at least have a Pinto to drive around.

Tea party - 24
Occupy Wall Street - 0

Three minutes remain in the third quarter and OWS just lost the ball on a fumble to the Tea Party on the 10 yard line.

This was supposed to bne like the 70’s protests that took down the Nixon admionistration, except Odumbell and his people are as incompetant at this as they are at everything else.

The ONLY reason he got elected was that he was a fresh new BLACK face speaking empty, stupid, happy-talk to a cheerleading media, against a feckless, lame, doddering old opponent.

They opposed the rich but said nothing when Obama gave tens of billions to GM.... when he fundraises with multi-millionaires they are silent...

They are either hypocrites or on the Soros payroll

This entire Occupy nonsense has been a big yawn from start to what appears to be the finish.

Maybe it was too much like work. Too bad, there was a 1% club party at 40/40 last night. Would’ve been nice to see OWS there protesting.

Black also commented, “It just wasn’t fun anymore, once MSNBCCNNABCNBCPBSANDEVENFOX stopped featuring us on their shows every day... and these greedy, capitalist pig local vendors have stopped supplying us with free sushi and vegan donuts! It just, like — blows, man!”
