Live, From New York, It's Occupy Day of Action!
November 17, 2011. Mark it well. This, THIS is The Day When Everything Finally Changed! This is the National Day of ACTION for the Occupy Movement! The 99% are on the march! Now, finally, the nation will rally round Our Cause and bring down the crooked banksters and shut down all the corporations, and then there will be economic justice for ALL!
Kicked out of Zucchini Park, the OWSies are now marching on Wall Street, even as we speak. SHUT IT DOWN! Shut DOWN Wall Street! Shut the whole d*mn thing down! We're so angry! Watch the pigs come out and try to stop us! They shall not prevail! We shall not fail!
Live, From New York, It's Occupy Day of Action! DUmmieland is full of it. Live reports are streaming in, despite the d*mned facists trying to keeps this news from the nation. So many threads to choose from, too many to link to. We'll give you one link, to the first THREAD from this historic morning, "PHOTOS - 1000s Of OWS Protesters Gather To Literally Occupy Wall Street This Morning MARCH STARTING," and you can take it from there. But we'll be jumping from thread to thread here, doing our best to keep you informed.
So the valiant OWSies are on the march. But there's one man missing. Where is he? Why isn't he here?? And so we sing:
WEE WILLIE PITT, WHERE ARE YOU?
Tune: "Car 54, Where Are You?"
They're evicting us from camp
They don't like we are in tents
They're compacting all our clothing
They don't like we're making scents
Cops are moving in so soon
Here come Toody and Muldoon . . .
Wee Willie Pitt, where are you?
We've been kicked out of the park
Now we're marching down Wall Street
Shouting slogans, blocking traffic
Making friends of all we meet
What's that strangely missing sound?
There's no Piper to be found . . .
Wee Willie Pitt, where are you?
Up in Boston in his room
Sits the Pittster deep in thought:
"This is now the time for action
There's a battle to be fought
Soon the Bruins take the ice
Get remote control device . . .
Channel 54, where are you?"
And now to an anxious DUmmieland, monitoring the unfolding events in New York, their remarx in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, the wag tailoring the doggerel, Charles Henrickson, a mere scribe awed to be relaying history as it unfolds before our eyes, is in the [brackets]:
