A few things as Sunday  winds down.

Smelly hippies insist that nothing will move them from their crusade to bring the financial world to its knees:

Organizers of Occupy Toronto have planned a “general assembly” Sunday evening in preparation for a planned march through the financial district on Monday morning.

Thousands of protesters descended Saturday on Toronto’s St. James Park, with some planning to camp out indefinitely as part of a global movement to raise awareness about growing income disparity.

I think once the wind picks up and with a good belt of rain, these guys will pack it up and leave.


And what is a good "occupation" without anti-Semitism?

These are the 99%? I hope not.

I found this little item here and it is discussed here:

"When we were young we might have been able to claim ignorance of the atrocities that Christopher Columbus committed against the indigenous peoples," Kennedy School Principal Anne Foley wrote.

"We can no longer do so. For many of us and our students celebrating this particular person is an insult and a slight to the people he annihilated. On the same lines, we need to be careful around the Thanksgiving Day time as well."

Teachers have already been told not to let students dress up for Halloween.

If this so-called educator bothered to arm children with facts, she would know that the Vikings and Irish monks reached the New World before Columbus and that the "indigenous people" were far more brutal to their own than any European settler (well-established to be "unenlightened", to say the very least). If she had any scruples, she would not be the world's biggest wet noodle about children wearing silly costumes and getting candy. But if public holidays truly bother her, she is welcome to work on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas.

Oh my God, this looks good!
