Snowstorm, Cold Makes Life In Zuccotti Park Difficult For OWS Protesters
CBS ^ | 10/30/2011 | Unattributed

Posted on 10/30/2011 2:55:40 PM PDT by tje

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Saturday’s snow storm made life in Zuccotti Park miserable for Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Demonstrators were left drenched with rain and then snow as the storm moved through the region. Central Park set a record for both the date and the month of October with 2.9 inches of snow.

Those camping out in the park have been stockpiling donated blankets, scarves, coats and have been trying to get more tents, cots and tarps.

The comments in the article are funny. I don’t see a lot of sympathy for the occupiers.

I bet dreams of a nice warm office job are abundant at Wall Street Central right now.

Gotta stock up on all those winter items made by greedy capitalists. Also keep putting more money in those greedy capitalist banks.

Read the comments, if they are 99% then I'm Mickey Mouse. They are .00000001%. And I guarantee most of their money comes from Soros.

I hope they get blizzard force winds next, hell I'd like to see Zucchini Park turned into Hoth the planet in Star Wars Empire Strikes Back! They sure have creatures there resembling wampas and taun tauns!!!

One of my favorite comments:

Any good looking hippy chicks can come to my place I’ll keep them warm…but they’ll have to leave with the rest of the trash in the morning.

ROTFLMAO!!

I hope they stay there too, and freeze their spoiled snotty left wing asses off. Not even Soros’ money will be able to keep them there after a few days of really cold weather. How will they charge their MacBooks in the cold? They’re all spoiled and soft.

What is the turn over? How many protesters are on R&R rotation, at any given time (warming up in their moms' basements)? I'm betting they can keep up the appearances of a continuous occupation, for a long time. It just takes sufficient reserve protesters, to allow for a rotation. That shouldn't be hard to do, in urban areas, where plenty of sympathizers live nearby.

You got that right.

Anyone being paid to protest is just another Ahole taking his check to the bank that he’s protesting.

The only power they will have is what they generate with 5 bikes? The article also said they had raised 450K and only spent 50K so far. How about assessing them for the police
protection and other expenses?

I think they can last a very long if the local city governments don’t get sick of them stinking up their public places and hurting their local economy. I say this because most of these sites have a bunch of empty tents where only a few people make a showing of being there full-time. Most go home at night to their parents’ basements to smoke a bong, watch “The Daily Show”, and complain about why society owes them a 6 figure salary.

I am happy the weather is making it rough for them. These spoiled ingrates have no heart so less of them will show up for these events in the future.

They have the right to protest, but they do not have the right to occupy areas for days at a time.

They HAVE the money...instead they choose to BEG/ASK for money which is separate from their own funds.

Unbelievable. Seriously, I wished these effing losers freeze on the spot. They need more art statues in the city, right?

Build a fence around the place to keep them in. Chances are the crime rates in other parts of the city have dropped off dramatically since this fiasco started.

Supporter : hold firm,, huddle together in groups and shout give us back our electricity, block the roads and demand the return of the generators,,the world has heard the message, the corrupt money based upon a screw and optimize has harmed billions of lifes and needs to end.

Reply : Best solution is to light one of the protesters on fire, it should keep the rest of them warm for about an 1/2 maybe longer if they layered their clothing.

Too funny. ROFL

Because that money needs to go to Zero's re-election slush fund.

Well, they do claim to be members of the majority, which does make them bolsheviks, rather than mensheviks (at least in their own minds, if one goes by the literal definitions of the terms).

I'd like to see people hurl rotten vegetables at them! I know they are already humiliating themselves by their insane behavior but I would love to see the "1%" mock the hell out of them!!!

The only 99% they represent are 99% of George Soros funded operations...

Or the cold weather drained his iPhone so the loser would have to abandon ship to recharge it so he can go rant on twitter and other websites saying how they are braving the cold just like Valley Forge. I really would like to slap the brat who came up with that analogy.

Look at all the free learning they’re getting for when they don’t get that woman’s study degree and they really have to live on the street. Maybe they’ll get some up close advice from the homeless people that are butting in on their free food for some free food.

Hey, God, it’s me. I hear those OWS guys are mocking you, saying that this storm is a pathetic joke and that you don’t have the guts to throw anything stronger at them.

Just sayin’.

Amen.

Featured comment:

“They’re asking for donations of warm clothing, blankets, etc. that at this time of the year would usually be going to the poor and homeless. Of course, they made it clear earlier this week that the homeless were not welcome in their free food lines. Looks like there is a hierarchy of the 99 percent.”

LOL
