    I do. I have to imagine, that with the term "right wingers" that you are seeing it differently then me, though. Budget cuts equal the stopping of free hot dogs. Democrat protestations equal the OWS actions.

    I've seen people who walked on other people for months or years, while the other person took it like a doormat... then ONE day the doormat got fed up and said "Enough!" and the bully reacted with anger, outrage and even HURT FEELINGS that their doormat had suddenly stopped letting them walk on him!!

    some people are rotten.
    That could be interpreted as the 1% doing the walking and the 99% beginning to object to the doormat status. A very germaine analogy.

    Where's the love? There's a song for this troublesome issue:



    Everyone sing!
    This is Jack, he runs a popcorn cart . . . but he also takes a nightclub class in abstract art. . .

    Adrea serves a mean jerk-chicken but her mind is set on getting her husband to remodel their kitchen . . .

    You buy their hotdogs and you crave their kabobs . . . you won't forget what you bit but will you remember their face? . . .

    They're not just vendors: they're a member of the human race . . .

    I wonder if this is similar to a Journal Sentinel story here in Milwaukee a few years ago when they quoted a police officer as saying feces were hurled at a recruiting station when it never actually happened. That's certainly a possibility considering that the article in the OP is essentially worthless and doesn't provide any info surrounding this event whatsoever, and merely quotes "a city councilman" about the alleged bodily fluids. The article is also pretty clearly biased.

    It's real.

    It actually happened.




    Furthermore, these vendors aren't the only ones being terrorized:

    Wow. She sounds like a total bitch. She wants everyone removed from her MOBILE cart. She can just ****ing pack up and go somewhere else if business isnt good. Then she holds up pictures of what appears to be a personal car with no blood smeared on it.... Just because SOMEONE MAYBE vandalized her crap doesn't mean the OWS movement doesnt have a legitimate message/reason/existance and we shouldn't let what MAY have happened usurp the right to freedom of assembly.

    Both sides are doing a great job at politicizing even the stupidest issues. The facts are that some people acted like thuggish, self-entitled douche-bags. These actions don't make the entire movement evil, but it won't help its image.

    I guess I can agree to that.
