May Day Coming Early?

Man, Manhattan, well, specifically Lower Manhattan and that bastion of Evil Monied Interests, i.e. Wall Street, is crawling with cops and the metal barricades; Broadway from City Hall to Bowling Green is one big metallic funnel.

I guess all the concerned-types will be out showing their OUTRAGE that Arizona is enforcing Federal laws that have been on the books for years?

Meanwhile those of us who actually, well, work during they day will just keep chugging along and paying our taxes.

Update: Ah, someone just told me it will be the unions protesting about financial reform. Great.

Update The Second: Oh great, now these asshats are planning on being here at 3:30 to completely screw up everyone’s commute. I’m outa here.

    No outrage from me. I think it was a brilliant political move by Arizonans.

    The details of the law are pretty benign but it might force some action to adress the issue.

    It’s May Day, Mr. B. The commies need SOME excuse to parade. On the whole, openly worshiping Lenin remains socially unacceptable.

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    Maybe I should call it Che Day.

    Heh, our parish is holding its Pre-Cana that day. Power to the Betrothed!

  5. Yojimbo says:

    Maybe we could call it Goldilocks and the Three Bears Day.

    “My porridge is too hot. Because you’re a racist.”

    “My porridge is too cold. Because you’re a racist.”

    “My porridge is just right. Why did you racists just steal it?”

    Only racists have porridge.

    Update The Second

    Makes perfect sense: increase public awareness of a non-issue by screwing up everyone’s day.

    Well, maybe the unions couldn’t get their rank and file out of bed and sobered up any earlier.

  9. JeffS says:

    PS: If anyone is curious, by “non-issue”, I refer to the fact that the financial reform this country really needs is in Congress, not on Wall Street.

    PPS: How about pudding, Sis? Can we have pudding?

  11. Dave E. says:

    Pie. I want pie.

  12. tree hugging sister says:

    You may have neither, bad boys. Fiber it is. LOTS of fiber for my two favorite human beans.

    “[I]t will be the unions protesting about financial reform.”

    I fart in their general direction.

  14. JeffS says:

    How about pudding pie, Sis? With coconut garnishing. That’s a lot of fiber.

    Read today’s NY Post and see what the morally and intellectually evolved are bitching about. The only thing they didn’t mention was jock itch. Maybe the reporter just didn’t get to it.
