It Ain’t Over Yet: Occupy Wall Street Marches On and Police Respond

In an obvious response to Brooklyn Steve’s projection that the popular Occupy Wall Street movement was dead, several thousand protesters took to the streets of New York to personally prove him wrong. It seems that the liberal protesters have figured out that the key to winning a political war is through media saturation. This is an election year after all. This all means that the days of grabbing headlines with a few smelly bums sleeping in a small city park are over. So what gets headlines, cops pepper spraying old ladies seems to work for the Occupy Seattle spin-off protestors. This tactic continues to grab headlines as the Mayor of Seattle formally apologized to the 84-year-old liberal activist and suggested that the Seattle Police review their actions. In that protest Seattle Police arrested 6 protestors (the old lady was not one of them). New York, not to be out done by the Starbucks city, had hundreds of protestors arrested today. Its seems that Police have to sit down with public officials a comprise a clear plan that will allow peaceful protest but maintain the safety of the public at large, because if not there is going to be a lot more tity grabbing (see below) and grandma bashing to come.

 

Honk!

Dick Sharpe is among that rare breed of men who crawled their way out of the gutter and in to the academic and political elite. Despite this accomplishment, Dick retains his sharpe wit and sense of low-brow humor that makes him such a great contributor to Step Aside Show Blog and Podcast. Although Dick is a wicked charmer, whose sexual exploits are still the talk of Yale, Columbia, and a small town in a northern border province of Iraq, he is also a domesticated man living with with two handsome yet annoying sons and his wicked hot but equally annoying wife in Seattle. Dick is an accomplished academic writer, an award-winning poet and a self-proclaimed wordsmith, a battle-tested Combat Officer of the US Army, as well as a world-renowned alcoholic. Working mostly in the public sector, Dick continues to use his unique set of skills to better the life of his fellow compatriots. Mr. Sharpe’s ideological beliefs are a bit at odds within themselves at times he is strong believer in social programs and liberal rights while at the same time a strong believer in neo-liberal economic policies and the power of the free market to shape the political landscape. Put simple Dick Sharpe is the kind of man men wish they could be, and women wish they can be with, but the truth is they can’t because there is only room enough for one Dick Sharpe in the World.
