Who cares? Get those jerks to pay for police services all during their occupation. Get them to pay for hygiene cleanup. Get them to pay local businesses for loss of income. Get them to pay for disruption of traffic.

Like I said, who cares? This is another in a long, long list of King Obama's ploys to turn our democracy into a socialist country.

Just because they come to the protest without money does not take into account the extraordinary resources of these 'trust fund babies'.
They chose to camp out instead of accepting a job below their station.
The blacks have been here before. Woodstock

When people ask where the funding comes from to feed the transportation, organization and logistics of OWS they get a resounding silence in reply.

They try very hard to create a grass roots image but the red flashing sirens of common sense tell otherwise. Soros, King Obama and ACORN operatives are busy as cockroaches in a dark bathroom.
