I found this occupied rendition of Christina’s World by Andrew Wyeth. Isn’t it hilarious? Who knew that an OWSer could have such a sense of humor? I am impressed.
Update: Apparently, the OWSers have a meme going in which they insert the pepper-spraying cop into many different photos and pictures. I guess they are trying to arouse our sympathies through the arts. Go here if you want more pepper spray culture. h/t – Robert
Saw this video created by a You Tube contributor named ”Obamamotors” and thought that it nicely sums up who the OWSers are and what the OWSers want. It’s pretty darn good.
There are a few peeks at some OWSer nekkid breasteses in the video, so it may be NSFW. We don’t post gratuitous nudity at the Spew, but since the women were filmed on a city street and nudity seems to be important to the movement, it’s not really gratuitious.

Meet New York’s newest hero.
Kevin Hiltunen, a former NYPD officer, yesterday grabbed an Occupy Wall Street demonstrator by the collar and dragged him out of a Queens school where he’d been heckling US Rep. Bob Turner at the congressman’s swearing-in ceremony.
“I guess you could say I sorted him out,” said Hiltunen, 48, his jacket and tie barely mussed after dragging the scruffy protester out on his rear end.
“All I was doing was trying to stop this historic occasion from being disrupt-ed. There is a time and place to exercise your First Amendment rights,’’ said Hiltunen, of Bergen Beach, Brooklyn, who was identified by people at the ceremony as an ex-Marine.

Of course, the Time reporter indicates in the disclaimer that a person’s inclusion in the poll does not necessarily mean that he or she is a serious candidate. Sure.
Personally, I kinda think the Occupy freaks will actually win Time’s Person of the Year. What do you think?

From tsunamis to budget battles to revolutions, 2011 has been a tumultuous, news-packed year. Who influenced the news most, for better or for ill? Tradition dictates that TIME’s editors choose the Person of the Year, but we want to know: if you were in charge, who would it be? And remember, a person’s inclusion as a ‘candidate’ in the poll doesn’t mean he, she or they are serious candidates to be named Person of the Year by the magazine.
On Sept. 17, about 2,000 people amassed on Wall Street to protest corporate greed and influence in government. They didn’t succeed in occupying all of the financial district, or even all of Wall Street, but they have taken and held a small urban park in lower Manhattan around the corner from Ground Zero. In the early weeks of the demonstrations, a core group of protesters set up a complex tent city from which they organized large marches and rallied around the slogan “We are the 99%.” The movement has since gone national, with rallies and “occupations” in dozens of cities across the U.S., from Oakland, where confrontations with the police became violent, to Atlanta, where protesters expanded the group’s mandate by occupying a house to prevent a bank from taking it in foreclosure.

The Occupy Wall Street protesters shut down a Panel for Education Policy (PEP) meeting. PEP fulfills the role of a Board of Education and enacts policy for New York City Schools.
Total assjackery. Even the kid’s not cute.
This time around little pressure is applied to NPR from the public or elected federal officials before the firing of another rule breaker radio show host.
A public radio host was fired on Thursday after the conservative political site The Daily Caller exposed her role as a spokeswoman for Occupy 2011, the faction of Occupy Wall Street movement occupying Washington’s Freedom Plaza.
