Occupy Wall Street Still Going, thanks to a Weak-Kneed Mayor

Earlier this month when I was in New York City to visit the 9-11 Memorial, I noticed these former hippies and "disaffected youth" camping out in Zuccotti Park, spewing their anti-capitalist message, making a nuisance of Lower Manhattan and stinking up the place...all in the shadow of the 9-11 Memorial. On October 1st, the smell of body odor and pot was pretty strong, and after reading about the continuation of OWS in Lower Manhattan, it's probably a lot worse!

There already have been clashes with police, and Mayor Bloomberg, along with the owners of Zuccotti Park, stated the park was supposed to be cleared so it could be cleaned. Apparently, Bloomberg caved and knowing the owners' relationship with Bloomberg and those on the left side of the aisle (politicians in Washington are condoning this) this wimp-out is of no surprise. Unfortunately, it has emboldened them. As New Yorkers and tourists become sick of the hassle these hypocritical hangers-on are causing, they will long for the mayor they used to have and hopefully, force this mayor to act.

For now, Occupy Wall Street, the smokescreen to this president's scandals and blindness to the economic problems, looks to continue.
