Skip to comments.Occupy Wall Street braces for winter (Pampered Fleabaggers Abandon Wall Street...)
Posted on 10/29/2011 4:47:16 AM PDT by jimbo123
Reporting from New York "Is it time to Occupy Miami Beach?" a shivering Max Richmond asked another New York protester as she waited to get Vitamin C near the makeshift medical tent.
They laughed and hugged for warmth.
Since hundreds of anti-greed protesters descended on a park a block from Wall Street this fall, they have faced arrest, sleep deprivation, no bathrooms and rainy weather. They've had their backpacks and iPods stolen and their food tent invaded by freeloaders and tourists. But a downpour Thursday night followed by frost Friday was a reminder to even the most dedicated occupiers of what many have said will be their greatest test a New York winter.

C’mon down FleaBaggeres! The bugs and critters are gonna have a picnic, literally!
Faced, huh? Simple solution: GTF home, you loozars!
“Anti-greed protesters”? Real greed is demanding a share of someone else’s earnings.
The food tent invaded by free loaders? BAHHAAAAAAAAAA!
Now we can watch and see just how committed these spoon-fed, self-important, white children of privilege are to their cause. My bet is on "Not so much."
Go get 'em, Mother Nature!
I know I should not have laughed...but I did.
They like nature so much, it should be fun when they get a whole bunch of nature dropped on them today.
The hugging and laughing is going to stop, and we will soon see shots of shredded tents and abandoned signs on the grass.
Then we’ll start seeing the stories about “Wall Street Hangover,” and “Occupy Depression,” as these “young, anti-greed protesters who only want a fair shake for everyone” realize they wasted their time and missed some really good new episodes of Vampire Diaries...to change the world. Sniff.
Hoping for a winter blast like no other.
Hoping for folks to lose their toes due to frostbite.
Like to see three feet of mushy snow blanket N.Y.
I am feeling way too mean this morning...
I won't hold my breath that some one will not do something stupid.....thats a given.
I just would hate to see a massive flash fire.
Can’t wait to see what happens to their “camp” when the 50mph winds hit after midnight, tonight.
They’re not gonna make it too long, I don’t think. Things are already very cold, wet and breezy. The camera kid keeps saying, “Man, my hands are freezing! I need my gloves.”
The cleanup costs are gonna be, well...outta here.
California or Florida, here they come.
Seeing the winds and apparently cold weather makes me laugh.
I have a ton of things I really need to do today, but I don't want to miss seeing a bunch of tarps and other crap flying all over the place when the gusts pick up.
Pass the link along to others who need a laugh today.
The Occutards aren't going to last much longer.
We have to pass the park on our way to the 911 memorial on
Sunday.I wonder if anyone will be around after today’s weather?
Seems fair to me. Why shouldn't the greedy, rich people with shoes be forced to share with the less fortunate folks.
I bet their shoes were made by evil corporations so they won’t miss them.
Sounds like they aren’t too committed to the cause no matter how much ACORN pays them to be there.
At least I think this "Lisa Fithian" is a fake who is taunting them, as are a few others.
LOL! That's right. Down with capitalism. Down with materialism and greed. Up with sustainable communities. Share the resources. Redistribute the wealth.
From the article:
"...protesters are already huddling at night under tents and tarps, layering on as much clothing as they can, ducking frequently into fast-food restaurants to get warm..."
Ahhh... wouldn't it just be easier to work in the fast-food restaurant and stay warm and dry all night?
It’s warm in Zimbabwe.
Wow....some fun and some serious stuff...whoa...
Now it’s Beck’s fault? These idiots are beyond help. Small businessmen...time to reconsider hiring older workers.
I think they should ask people to bake rocks and bring them down.
Drenched occupiers, with their pockets loaded down with rocks... Oh the humanity!
Some of these nutcases don’t need much of a signal to set them off...and it won’t be just Beck.
"Do you guys have snow shovels?"
"I don't think we have snow shovels. Hopefully we won't get too much snow."
"It would be real good if somebody could donate some snow shovels."
Cracks me up!
Yes, it’s actually kind of sad that there are some really stupid people out there who are woefully unprepared for the weather heading their way. There will no doubt be numerous hypothermia cases.
The MSM is trucking in giant propane stadium heaters to keep them toasty all winter.
Watch for Bloomberg in a Santa suit.
It is kind of funny to watch them scramble. Considering how a TEA Party rally in such predicted weather and how we would not only show up prepared for ourselves...but also be prepared to help someone else.
In fact in the end, we’d end up donating extra materials to local shelters instead of blogging around with our hands out.
And it won’t be their own darn fault.
It will be the fast food joint that closes early to get the employees home safe, it will be the mayor’s fault for not allowing them to tap into city resources...
It will be big bad (insert word here)...
Now I really gotta go get some work done. I'll have to check back with the live stream and this thread later
Y'all have fun now!
And don’t forget, Manhattan - particularly downtown - is a massive wind tunnel due to the skyscrapers. Those little parks wedged in between buildings can sometimes be the worst! I’m here in northern NJ right now and it’s pretty nasty outside.
Sounds as if the OWS is composed of “Sunshine patriots and Summer Soldiers”.
When the going gets tough, the “tough” get whine!
I just would hate to see a massive flash fire.
Ha! I would have put a sarc tag on that!
LOL! I was thinking along the same lines!
That must be a Tea Party troll. No one is that stupid...I think.
I’m not the least bit concerned about their “exposure” to the elements.
I’ve had to work in the elements my entire life. Bring out in the freezing rain is cold in Texas too.
Screw em. These idiots are there by “choice to” not “need to”.
“They laughed and hugged for warmth.” The girls in high school always wanted to know why I wanted to go ice skating with them.
“Here....let’s hug for warmth. You know, those clothes just retain the cold. We should get into the pickup and take off our clothes to stay warm. Oh.....hello Mr. Johnson. Isn’t it a little late to be out hunting? Oh.....the gun keeps you warm. I see.”
Understand my concern is for how it will be spun...
