Here’s something you don’t see every day: Occupiers who are undeterred by the threat of a shower:

The few hundred protesters gathered under rainy skies in a park about a half-mile from the GOP convention on Sunday said an impending hurricane that is supposed to dump heavy rains on Tampa won’t deter them from trying to get out their message that America needs to change, especially for the middle class.

Giant blocks of ice spelling out the words “middle class” are melting on a warm, sticky days. Occupy protesters say it represents the melting away of the middle class in America.

That message rings true for 52-year-old Tom Gaurapp and Cheryl Landecker from Freeport, Ill. Both worked for Sensata Technologies in the city of some 25,000 people and say 170 jobs there, including their own, were outsourced to China. Occupy is a left-leaning protest group of people in their mid-20s who generally believe that the financial system is stacked against a majority of people.

Gaurapp and Landecker say that just a few years ago, they never would have considered joining such a protest.

“But then again, we wouldn’t have dreamed our jobs would have gone to China,” Gaurapp said.
The weather isn’t a deterrent to 52 year-old Donald Butner, who says he’s been sleeping at the Occupy camp in Tampa for a few months and that “we’re here, baby, rain or shine. The weather is going to do what it is going to do.”

Maybe he’d have better luck finding a job if he wasn’t sitting for months at a time in Camp Stinky waiting for somebody to come and hire him… ya think?

    O/T: I`ve gotten pretty quick at hitting the mute button with all the Obama ads on TV on nearly every channel I watch. A few minutes ago, I switched over to BET channel to watch "Coming to America" and guess what was the first ad !? A pro-Romney ad with several black folk saying how Romney will do more for them than Obama.

    Didn`t we just see a report that Romney has NO support from blacks ?

    Speaking of concerts, The wife and I took our two older boys up to Vancouver, B.C. on Saturday to see Metallica. After 30 years I can say those guys still know how to put on a hellavu show.

    The boys had an awesome time, and to top it off Metallica was filming for their 3D movie that night. The boys are still excited over the whole show.
