As listed on the Drudge Report regarding Occupy Wall Street:
  • Dead man in Salt Lake City…
  • Tuberculosis in Atlanta…
  • “Zuccotti Lung” on Wall Street…
  • Suicide in Vermont…
  • Murder in Oakland…
As quoted by Rudy Giuliani:

"I believe that Barack Obama owns the Occupy Wall Street movement. It would not have happened, it would not have happened but for his class warfare. And remember, as it gets worse and worse because it's going to get worse and worse, where it came from. Barack Obama. He praised it. He supported it. He agrees with it. He sympathizes with it. And as it gets worse and worse, I believe this will be the millstone around Barack Obama's neck that will take his presidency down."

To compare OWS to the Tea Party is absurd. The Tea Party has a commonsense agenda and a clear path to acquire their goals, which was defined and heeded to during the midterm elections last year. While OWS is a swelling Petri dish of rioting, vandalism and utter chaos, coughing and hacking their way to nowhere, impeding their own long-term futures by behaving like debauched satyrs in a Dionysian forest of concrete and commerce, the Tea Party peacefully and calmly, with distinguished organization, made their point and achieved the results they desired.

What will OWS achieve? I think many of those who sacrificed time away from whatever it was they were doing before, which could not have been too important because they are now living in tents, enduring filth and the elements, will be filled with a huge sense of disappointment and disdain very soon. And this disappointment and disdain will be for Barack Obama, the superficial celebrities who made disingenuous appearances, Mayors and other political figures who allowed this farce to rage forward, and the media that daily bolstered their cause, just to name a few. There will be regret and it will arrive in the form of eventually rejoining American society and looking for a job. If they never find the happiness, contentment, and pride that comes with earning and providing for themselves, the liberation from a federal government who wants to convince them that they can achieve nothing by themselves, and if they never discover how to shake the shackles of socialistic ideas off their wrists, it will be a shame. They would be victims of what happens when a radical, leftist president implements the ideas that are currently failing so miserably all around us in other countries.

753.8 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day75.
