Like I wrote yesterday, some of these “Occupy” idiots who decided to stand in the way of bargain shoppers and $2 waffle makers and the like were lucky to get out of there with their lives. But I guess they should feel lucky if being ignored was the worst thing that happened to them:

Occupy SF activists had hoped to keep shoppers out of downtown San Francisco stores to protest corporate greed, but no matter how hard they yelled, shoppers shoved right on by.

Two dozen Occupy protesters began marching around downtown at sundown, chanting protest slogans. They’d hoped to make their anti-consumption point at the annual Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in Union Square, but the crowd was so massive they couldn’t get near.

Here’s a sad Occupy “mic check” attempt at Target, resulting in shoppers pretty much ignoring them. Check out the guy in the Batman shirt — he’s got to “Occupy Wall Street” because “Occupy Getting a Girlfriend” is pretty much out of the question:

Did “Occupy Black Friday” really think they were any match for this madness?

    Keep it up OWSers! As establishment Republicans have taught us, warring against your base is not a good idea. And when you claim to represent 99% of the country, that's a lot of people to piss off!

    OWS sounds about as 'enthusiastic' as the Our Father at the New Year's Day mass..? And let us not into… [temptation!?] and deliver us from… 'something'? blah blah…

    ( Can we get a DRINK now? )

    If it wasn't for their firm, rock hard unwavering -conviction- to remain unemployed and useless in general this would've died out before it even started.

    Because of its strong and divinely guided heritage that became the American experiment, the immune system of the body America has shown itself to be of much stronger resolve than an anemic foreign looser like Zero or his most current infection, OWS.

    Zero’s infection, OWS, may have caused America to stumble and skin a knee or an elbow, but such wounds need little more than the antiseptic of conservatism to heal.

    For now we must wait and deal with the pain and discomfort but in less than a year the Zero and his cadre will be expelled from the body America like a kidney stone (OUCH!) passed and flushed to disappear back into the sewers along with that which is the result of NBC’s leaning forward.

    Clu,

    Poetry man, pure poetry!

    Since my long favored Public Employee Union analogy is "When the tick is bigger than the dog..?" this dovetails effortlessly. Parasites all.

    In honor of Small Business Saturday ( Mrs. Will bought a Jag! ) Buddy owns a lot. Duuuude, throw some business at me WILL ya'!? Can't say No pricing. Just missed having one in the driveway.

    Why is it I can picture Teh Once sporting an Oil Can Henry's hat asking me if I'd like a USA Today and vacuum the interior so readily?

    I was a participant in this action on Target, and I can tell you that the great majority of both the shoppers and employees enjoyed our less than three-minute demonstration as a refreshing break from the "Hell" that is "Black Friday". The amount of attention this tiny action, done by a small group of seven people, has garnered from you right-wingers indicates how threatened you are at the thought of the slaves staging a revolt.

    For a moment, Target became the country's newest wind tunnel.
