First some of the anti-capitalists at Occupy Wall Street got dollar signs in their eyes when the money started rolling in. Then the people who want government to take from the rich by force and give to them started complaining that people were stealing from them.

Now the kitchen staff volunteering for the movement dedicated to getting free stuff from the upper one percent is sick and tired of freeloaders:

The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday — because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.

For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad.

They will also provide directions to local soup kitchens for the vagrants, criminals and other freeloaders who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day.

Aw, people are taking advantage of something they’ve worked hard for? Now who would do such a thing?

Even more interesting, it would appear that OWS is not only against the upper one percent, but the lower one percent as well. They’ll have to change those signs to “We are the 98%.”

In the end, OWS will be crushed under the weight of its own irony.

Update: Another one to throw on the pile: Occupy Portland files for incorporation.

    "because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters."

    An inequity right there! What with all the slackers standing around, there's absolutely no need for ANY of them to be on their feet dishing out the slop for 18 consecutive hours?

    I'd say they need to stage a STRIKE! or… sit-in or walk-out or… something! Professional Left? Meet the Professional Homeless!

    Sounds like their complaining about the illegals are rolling over their borders for the freebies – hey, don’t be so prejudice.

    Clu,

    'They' didn't cross cross the Protest! The Protest crossed THEM!

    Hey man, my father panhandled this corner like his father BEFORE him! 'We' were here first. Then all these rich white kids from the suburbs just took over w/ their Ipods and Affliction apparel like it was 'theirs'!

    Reparation! I want my 4 block radius exclusive territory and a heating grate!

    This just keeps getting better and better (the levity). If it's free, it's for me! Let that be their rallying cry. What, they didn't expect the other societal freeloaders to show up in droves, walk the walk, and do what they do best? Please. Guess the OWS gang has been outwitted by grifter drifters. Time for the kids to formally join the ranks of the rank parasites.

    Isn't that discrimination and profiling? I thought the OWS wanted everyone to be viewed as equals.

    If they're not going to get fed, that should break things up pretty fast.

  8. Marshall_Will on October 27th, 2011 5:10 pm

    rbreslin,

    An army marches on its stomach! right? But don't you think these are becoming… training or indoctrination camps? Oh btw, the only thing Peter Shiff should have added when confronted by the "Do Away With The Bush Tax Cuts" crowd is to have simply said; WHAT Capital Gains!?

    Seriously, most of us are just NOW getting our investment portfolios BACK to breakeven ( we're about where we were in Oct. '07 ) and uh… WHO is making money in Real Estate these days? JMFC, even if you HAD a lucrative, cash flow pos. business, who the hell would be willing to take the RISK to BUY it off you?

    Yeah, WHAT 'captial gains'. You's dillrods, I'd LOVE to be 'able' to pay cap. gains. Stoopid schmucks.

    One more for the for the pile:
    Long Island Couple Seeks Trademark For "Occupy Wall St."

    "Asked if his move to stake a legal claim to “Occupy Wall Street” might be seen as a crass attempt to cash in on a movement that has a harsh view of corporations and capitalism, Maresca answered, “No.” Noting that he has a “practical business side,” Maresca added that, “If I didn’t buy it and use it someone else will.”

    It was their very mistake to have joined on the first place. They should have not hanged their cooking wardrobes and joined a misguided cost. Focusing on your livelihood is better on these tough economic times.
