What do you do when, after months and months of proclaiming you are the 99%, you are ignored by 99%? 

Evidently, you get angry and you lash out.

This is the "Occupy Seattle" crowd busy making friends and influencing people yesterday. 

The good news is that, according to the article, only two dozen or so of the hundreds of protesters turned violent. 

The bad news is that, in a town of over 600,000 people within a metro area of almost 3,500,000 people - noted for its leftward politics -  the "Occupy" movement could dredge up just a couple of hundred protesters.

And in New York City, where the "Occupy" anarchists promised to shut everything down?  With a population of over 8,000,000, within a metro area of almost 19,000,000, there were maybe a few thousand prosters, if that many.  There literally were more baseball fans in the lower deck of Yankee Stadium last night than there were protesters throughout the entire city.  And by plenty.

I'll tell you something else that is missing:  The enthusiastic support "Occupy" protesters got from people like President Barack The most important thing we can do right now is those of us in leadership letting people know that we understand their struggles and we are on their side..." Obama, Nancy "God Bless Them" Pelosi, and their Democrat cohorts.  Funny how those ringing endorsements somehow have been consigned to the nearest dumpster. 

Hey, here's an idea:  Maybe President Obama can send some of the thugs in the picture above to Afghanistan, to get rid of what is left of the violent taliban crowd, leaving only those friendly "conciliatory" folks Mr. Obama waxed so poetic about in yesterday's speech - before he hightailed it the #&%@ out of there just ahead of the taliban bombing that killed at least 7 people......
