A few weeks ago, The Morning Spew gave our readers a heads up about the OWSers’ plan to “occupy” stores and malls on Black Friday, usually the busiest shopping day of the year. You can read that here.
Apparently not getting enough attention from ”occupying” public spaces, the OWSers want to bring their collective tantrum to us, by blocking our right to freely choose where we shop and engage in commerce. Even though they claim to be leaderless, this sounds like something which should fall under the RICO act. Somebody, somewhere is pulling the strings for these lawbreakers.
I wonder if these OWSers have any idea as to what they are getting themselves into. If they think that they can waltz right into a store on Black Friday and prevent people from shopping, they are incredibly naive.
Here’s a video that helps make my point. Imagine, if you will, a moron in a Guy Fawkes mask trying to prevent this crock pot from finding a good home. I’d pay cash money to see that.
Here’s the short list, straight from their website, for their Black Friday targets:
On Black Friday,
Occupy or boycott:
- Abercrombie & Fitch
- Amazon.com (yes, we
have to stay away from Amazon, too!)
- AT&T Wireless
- Dick’s Sporting Goods (I was surprised, too!)
- The Home Depot
- Neiman Marcus
- Verizon Wireless
Some demonstrators are planning to
occupy retailers on Black Friday to protest “the business that are in the
pockets of Wall Street.”
Organizers are encouraging
consumers to either occupy or boycott retailers that are publicly traded,
according to the Stop Black Friday website.
The goal of the movement is to
impact the profits of major corporations this holiday season.
“The idea is simple, hit the
corporations that corrupt and control American politics where it hurts, their
profits, ” states the Occupy
Black Friday Facebook page.
A few of the retailers the
protesters plan on targeting include Neiman Marcus, Amazon and Wal-Mart.
Their website states the following:
“Keep in mind that we are not occupying small businesses
or hardworking people—we must make a distinction between the businesses that are
in the pockets of Wall Street and the businesses that serve our local
We are NOT anti-capitalist. Just anti-crapitalist.Below is a shortlist for publicly traded large businesses
to Occupy or to boycott on Black Friday. Luckily, most of them don’t have good
presents anyway. If you want to see the top 100 retail businesses for 2010 to
boycott, click here.

I have to wonder why any woman would subject her unborn baby to any occupy event, but then these people are liberals, so who knows. I thought we could help by suggesting a few baby names.
Here’s mine: “Free To a Good Home” - That was easy and it works for both boy and girl. Feel free to put your suggestions in the comments.
This video has been making the rounds and is being offered as proof from the lefties that the NYPD pepper sprayed innocent bystanders during the ongoing Wall Street protests. The New York Daily News reports an investigation into the pepper spraying incident has been launched, and that anonymous protesters have made public the personal information of the police officer they claim sprayed the women. Here’s the video:
If you watch the video, you can devise your own theories as to what happened. Here’s what I think might have happened: I think the police officer in question saw the innocent bystander women as they were being corralled into the portable orange holding pen by the police officers and he came over to offer the poor victims assistance.
As he approached the shrieking, hysterical women, he noticed an overwhelmingly strong stench of B.O. Seeing that the odoriferous women’s beckoning arms were upright and outstretched, the officer logically thought they were presenting their unshaven, stench laden pits to him for a quick spray of official NYPD deodorant.
In the midst of all the chaos and obviously not thinking clearly, he mistakenly pulled out his pepper spray canister, thinking it was the coveted spray deodorant they so desired. What happened next is simply a tragic case of a good intention gone wrong. Although the officer sprayed the deodorant/pepper spray directly into the hirsute pits of the innocent women bystanders, the wind kicked up and all hell broke loose.
In a state of shock, the shaken officer re-holsters the spray canister and wanders back aimlessly into the crowd. Of course, I am not saying this is what happened, but only that this is what could have happened. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the video as much as we at The Morning Spew did. Please feel free to leave your theories as to what you think might have happened in the comments.]]>
These slugs need to go home already. They made their point, which is that they have no point at all.
