Day! Of! Action!

At 5:30 there are far far more cops and media types about than Occupiers. Broadway is solid media trucks and police vehicles.

What a PITA.

Exciting! Action! Update!

Just look at the protest!

Power to the People!

I wonder if the cops who parked on the sidewalks gave them selves tickets?

    Keep us updated!

  2. Gary from Jersey says:

    Drudge says they’ve already named a subway stop Avenue Jew. It’s gonna be a long day, Mr. B.

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    People coming in to the office are saying it’s a pain in the buttski. Cops checking id that you actually work on Wall Street before they’ll let you on, so the Occupyistas are marching/chanting/shambling down the side streets questing the Snark.

  4. Syd B. says:

    I told the people in my NY office to work from home today. No need to tempt fate. I have a bad feeling about today.

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    I’m going to go out in about an hour.

  6. Mr. Bingley says:

    My real name is Reginald T (as in Tempting Fate) Bingley, Syd.

  7. Syd B. says:

    Well then, don’t forget to wear a cup.

  8. major dad says:

    I’d carry some mace or pepper spray Bing, if that’s legal there.

  9. Mr. Bingley says:

    There are police buses and vans unloading cops in riot gear on Water Street.

    The cops/MSM still way outnumber the Occupiers, from what I can see.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    I was thinking of packing extra deodorant, md, to hand out.

  11. JeffS says:

    And bars of soap, Mr. Bingley. If naught else, they can be used as a substitute for a brick, if only once.

  12. JeffS says:

    Syd, I saw that live stream. It’s a good thing that video feeds can’t transmit olfactory data……

  13. Syd B. says:

    Jeffs, from the reports I’ve read and heard, depending on wind direction, that data could arrive in a neighborhood near you, soon. I also found it helpful to turn off the audio while watching the live stream. That young man’s diatribe was giving me hives.

  14. Syd B. says:

    By the way, I saw somewhere that the guy who was on tv, threatening to burn down NYC, was arrested. I hope this is true.

  15. mojo says:

    Bar of soap and a spare sock, bingley. Keep ’em in separate pockets until needed.

  16. Mr. Bingley says:

    It’s more like Day! Of! Lameness!

    Very small crowd, very quiet crowd, walking around in a dispirited manner.

    The cops are in a good mood, which tells you all you need to know.

    I took a few lame pictures I’ll try to post.

    Cue the Franz Ferdinand.

    This fire is out of control
    I’m gonna burn this city
    Burn this city!

  18. JeffS says:

    Great idea, mojo! Add a little water, and tell the cops that the #OccupyCretin needed a bath.

  19. JeffS says:

    Syd, that youngling just wouldn’t STFU; he badly needed an application of mojo’s soap in a sock.

  20. Dave E. says:

    So did Bingley make it out okay or do we need to send Snake Plissken in?

  21. Mr. Bingley says:

    There was nothing to make it out of, Dave.

    But I can only imagine how many donuts were sold in lower Manhattan today…

    Some days, I wish Philly could be more like New York.
