“Honor among thieves”? Never:

Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops — and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.

“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.

“I had my Mac stolen — that was like $5,500. Every night, something else is gone. Last night, our entire [kitchen] budget for the day was stolen, so the first thing I had to do was . . . get the message out to our supporters that we needed food!”

A Mac? Some people can’t even afford a Big Mac sandwich let alone a Mac computer. What problem do these greedy OWS people have with re-distributing some of their riches?

    Redistribute (someone else's) Wealth!
    Eat (like) The Rich!
    Class(less) Warfare!

    What a great grass-roots (bowel) movement.

    Those greedy corporations will stop at nothing to silence the 99%. No doubt the Koch brothers have been doing most of the stealing themselves.

    Maybe kamping out with a smelly herd of trust-baby hippies wasn't such a good idea. There's a reason why we have gates and doors and locks. Maybe they should help the local economy and start renting rooms at night. Or better yet, go away.

    Phil,

    Remember just a few years ago when kids this age actually had the brass to be doing dot.com start-ups and we thought they were really, really 'annoying'?

    It should have provided us w/ the proverbial canary in the coal mine. Equity raises back then were a lay up. Investors were so hot to trot to stake out their "claim" on the 'internets' they didn't even really NEED a viable biz plan!

    With the most feeble of models, some kick-butt engineers and webpage design guys w/ tons o' beer and they were OFF! Of course, 99% turned out to be totally BOGUS and appropriately crashed & burned.

    But at least those kids were making 'some' kind of effort to pave their way to quick riches. 'This' 99% sought to eliminate the middleman, dispense w/ the guise of even TRYING and went right for the Gubmint Trough (TM)

    This proves that there is no honor among thieves.

    Not that the Left has a monopoly on hypocrisy (close), but the self-righteous and obtuse OWS crowd sure aren't shy about *demonstrating* it.
