#OccupyWallStreet Comes To The Show Me State

Occupations have been taking place around the country, every day since the original “Day of Rage” on September 17, and more occupations are scheduled  for the foreseeable future.

At the Occupy KC protest, a videographer asked one of the hipster-doofus protesters how long they plan to “occupy” the property outside the Federal Reserve Bank of KC. He answers, “As long as it takes – until some kinda real resolution is made.”

So there you have it. Obviously, no one in the government is going to comply with their list of Neo-Com demands, so they’ll be there until the first snow – if they make it that long.

It looks like at their peak, they had about twenty people:

 

 

Sadly, the cars honking as they went by were probably mistaking them for tea partiers. See the “We the people” sign?

The St. Louis protest was even dinkier:

Occupy Wall Street came to St. Louis on Saturday–and to 85 other cities, Mike Kiepe (pictured in the first photo) was telling me as we stood in front of the Federal Reserve Building at 411 Locust. Protesters across the country say they are there for the 99 percent of Americans who are being slowly squashed by the wealthiest one percent. As Obama pointed out, if pointing out the greediness of the top one percent is class warfare, then we’re proud to be warriors.
