#rsrh Zuccotti park to be cleaned – and, oh, yeah, shut down. #OWS

Oh, this is going to be entertaining:

The city’s top cop said today that the Occupy Wall Street protesters who clear out of Zuccotti Park tomorrow so their filthy makeshift campsite can get a much-needed cleaning can come back when the job is finished — but they can’t take their tents, coolers and other gear with them.

“People will have to remove all their belongings and leave the park,” Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said, “After it’s cleaned, they’ll be able to come back. But they won’t be able to bring back the gear, the sleeping bags, that sort of thing will not be able to be brought back into the park.”

Just goes to show: protests are all very well, but don’t go bugging the actual, you know, taxpayers who had the foresight to get good jobs, or good spouses, or both.  Even if those taxpayers are nominally of your political inclinations.  Actually, when it comes to the Left: especially when those taxpayers are nominally of your political inclinations.  Egalitarianism is something that those sorts of folks do on Sunday afternoons when there’s nothing else scheduled…

    The End is Coming! That by the way is not a religious conviction, just the facts. By the way, so is winter.

    Reminds me of an old bar trick. Doorman to offending patron: “You know, it’s so loud in here. Let’s step outside so I can hear your side of the story. . . Mmm-hmm. Mmm–hmm. Well, have a nice night!”

    I’m anticipating this whole thing to end in one of two ways: the people there keep doing more and more stupid and offensive things, until eventually the wrong person does the wrong thing to a cop and the cops get out their nightsticks and have an old-fashioned hippie beating; or it just kind of dwindles and fades away, starting around the first hard frost.

    It has been postponed, due to the fact that Brookfield Properties lack a spine.

    Dangit! That was going to be my Saturday morning entertainment. I want to see some of NY’s finest wielding batons and firehoses.

    Brookfield? Aren’t they owned by a company that was just awarded over $150M in Federal loan guarantees? Perhaps the problem isn’t related to a spine.

    Me too, Cochran. Me too.

    Plus Mayor Bloomberg’s long time live in girl friend is on the board of directors of Brookfield Properties.
