Tweety Birds

As protests go, the much-touted “Day of Rage”, aka #OccupyWallStreet, was a box office bust, the would-be army of occupation hardly large enough to fill vacancies at the Bates Motel, let alone to freeze the slowed but still thumping heart of American capitalism.  The perpetually displeased protesters that did show up were unable to close on their intended target anyway, as New York City authorities locked down parts of Wall Street prior to their arrival.  Saturday’s disappointing crowd, estimated at only 1,000, had by Sunday morning dwindled to about 300 diehard malcontented idlers—mostly assorted college dullards and geriatric hippies—who marched resolutely up Broadway with placards proclaiming “we are too big to fail.”

“I’m here, I’m tweeting,” said one protester.

Hope springs eternal among unemployed laptop revolutionaries with Twitter accounts, and organizers of the non-event were optimistic that crowds would swell during the week.

“Within a few days, we’ll be able to formulate a coherent set of demands, and we’re going to keep things going, and the idea is that it’s going to build from there,” said Will Russell. “So if you miss things on the weekend, come during the week. That’s when we’re going to need you the most and when, I think, things are going to be the most exciting”

Meanwhile, the Tweep-In-Chief, @BarackObama, continues his never-ending campaign to steal from the rich and give to the poor government:

In a plan his advisors described as his ideological vision, rather than a compromise offer to the GOP, Mr. Obama will also threaten to veto any plan Congress sends him that tackles entitlements but doesn’t include tax increases, which he will argue is central to a “balanced” approach. (Washington Times)

“It’s only right we ask everyone to pay their fair share,” said Obama from the White House Rose Garden.  Everyone, that is, except the federal government.  His plan for prosperity, you see, calls for $3 in new taxes for every $1 in spending cuts.  This guy’s not Robin of Sherwood—he’s the Sheriff of Nottingham.

“Liberals thrive on jargon as a substitute for thought.” — Ann Coulter

For the Left, policy must be reducible to a tweet, a slogan, or a nearly indestructible bumper sticker:

“If you love me, pass this bill.”

Their domain is the inane, and they are masters of it.

    An obvious indication of the ineptitude of the current administration.
    The ignorant in our society will slobber over any word the Bamster speaks as Bible.
    The ignorant in our society are receding into the doldrums of history.
    All hail Obama.

  2. What a bunch of zeros! It is interesting how little media attention they are getting.

    If you love America, VOTE OBAMA OUT OF OFFICE!

  5. If you love Obama, call your Congressman and ask him tp [ass Obama’s bill

    I f you love you country, call your Congressman and ask for a through investigation of Lightsquared, Solyndra and Fast and Furious, wouldn’t hurt to remind him how to spell Impeach

    If you just want a laugh, think about the protesters who woke up in the middle of the night to a couple cay sized NYC Alley Rats scrounging around their sleeping bag and backpacks…..
