No personal space left

No personal space left

Union-backed protesters plan on protesting outside the buildings of several billionaires in New York City, including trying to present “checks” representing the funds the billionaires will save if a New York State surcharge on the wealth expires later this year.

Make no mistake, this is not your ordinary Occupy Wall Street protest.   New York State unions have been going all out on the state tax provision long before the OWS protests, and key legislators have received death threats.

For the past two years the line separating public and personal space has been shrinking, as those who oppose unions find themselves confronted at home.

It’s a dangerous tactic which one of these days will result in a target of the protests being hurt.  It’s easier to hurl a crowd to chant on a front lawn or on a front stoop than it is to control the crowd.

Just like the Rutgers professor who confronted Paul  Ryan in a restaurant, there is no personal space left.

I should probably be spending more time making outlines for classes, but this Wall Street protest definitely has me all riled up.

I saw at least two protesters on the morning news say they were going to march to “the billionaire banker Jamie Dimon’s front porch”, which exemplifies one of my many problems with them, their inaccuracy. Jamie Dimon is a lot of things, including one of my personal role models, but he’s hardly a billionaire.

I’d like to see them try “occupying” a private residence in the South.

    Let ’em try this here in Houston… or Dallas… Two words: Castle Doctrine.

    It’d be all over in half an hour or less…

Unbelievable..what is wrong with these people??? The “Rich” politicians, celebrities and newscasters that are supporting these clowns had better watch it, because if they force the rich to leave…somebody will have to pay.

Never in my life would I have believed that this could happen in the USA.

    This sort of stuff usually turns around to bite the agitators and supporters. When heads begin to roll, eventually they’ll run out of “rich” people’s blood, and they’ll start chopping off the heads of whoever is with them who won’t toe their imaginary line.

I guess castle architecture needs to make a comeback.

Some one remind me, what are the reasons millionaires would want to live in NYC, again.

All the finance industry really needs by way of infrastructure is reliable power and communications, nowadays.

While it is true that it is likely one of the wealthy will get hurt by this mob, I think it is becoming equally likely that one of the mob may be hurt by one of the wealthy, in self defense, of course.

Either way it’s a win for the vermin. They’ll have a martyr and the good ole po-po will jump in and arrest the rich guy for defending himself.

They don’t particularly care if one of the cannon fodder or useful idiots gets ground up. Cost of doing business, you know.

This lot is beyond dangerous and they are trying to provoke something that they think they will be able to control, but will most likely become much bigger than they and turn around and consume them.

Not that that is a bad thing, but for the innocents who will get hurt in the process, it is.

Anyone else notice that this is the October Revolution? Little historical tidbit.

In other words, how much of THEIR money they won’t have to send to the government. Progressives believe that all money belongs to the government, and the government is kind and benificent enough to allow you to keep some of it for yourself.

Like they haven’t lost enough Congressional districts already due to shrinking population so now they are going to chase out those who pay most of the taxes. Brilliant!

Maybe JP Morgan and others should move their corporate headquarters and all of those jobs to South Carolina. Let’s see how many jobs those hippy leaders can create when their needy drones come demanding them.

We can thank the militant gays for this. (I know they’re not the first but they were the first to target regular folks who donated.)

By the way; when the “protests” get this personal and the threats are more immediate, IT’S CALLED TERRORISM.

This will probably not end well and the targets of the “protesters”, whomever they are, will be blamed.

There oughtta be a law against terrorizing people and their families at their private home over what they do at work.
I linked to your post here:
The targets should have a right to protect themselves, their families and their private property.
