Legal Insurrection Awards for Best #OccupyWallStreet Moments (plus Special Google Search Award)
Today is the 2nd Anniversary of the start of the Occupy Wall Street protests. Our first post was a couple of weeks later, Declaration of the Occupation of Perpetual Grievance.
Remember, the next, ahem, leading Democratic contender for President of the United States was the intellectual founder of Occupy Wall Street.
Our Occupy Wall Street tag now has over 100 posts. Go ahead and take a stroll down memory lane.
It’s really hard to find a single favorite post. Here are the Awards for Best Occupy Wall Street Moments (plus a Special Award at the end):
5. #OccupyWallStreet Photo of the Day
4. Worst. #OccupyWallStreet. Advice. Ever.
3. Best #OccupyWallStreet Tweet Ever
2. #OccupyWallStreet TwitPic of the Day
1. Wake Up Tweet of the Day
0. Special Award for Post That Gets Most Google Search Hits (for all the wrong reasons): Did they really chant “you can have sex with animals or whatever”?:
“The change is possible. So, what do we consider today possible? Just follow the media. On the one hand in technology and sexuality everything seems to be possible. You can travel to the moon. You can become immortal by biogenetics. You can have sex with animals or whatever. But look at the fields of society and economy. There almost everything is considered impossible.”
Honorable Mention: #OccupyWallStreet Tweet of the Day:
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
“Occupy Asheville (NC) dissolved itself – for now”
“Occupy Asheville was pronounced dead in a ceremony (on Saturday) attended by 17 people at Wall Street Coffee House and Emporium,” said Occupy participant James Latimore in an email. “The small amount remaining in the treasury was distributed to several local charities. The checking account is to be closed, the website shut down.”
Perhaps NC Mountain Girl scared them off.
I’d like to make an honorable mention to ‘Down Twinkles’.
A couple of protesters took Allison Burtch’s advice.
Rebels without a clue.
I came across Occupy Seattle and engaged a young lady in conversation. The main reason she was participating in the demonstration, she said, was because she had a double major from the U. of Washington and yet couldn’t find a job in her fields or otherwise.
Her majors were peace studies and women’s studies. I wouldn’t have hired her either, at least for any job that required some sort of analysis, because I could be sure that she had never heard or read anything that conflicted with the departments’ accepted wisdom. Yet her sense of grievance was strong.
Your 1%er corporate CEO overlords thank you. Give them all your money. Well done, thou good and faithful servant.

I would love it if you publicized my anti – occupy song “Occupy This, Occupy That” by Graham Gorrie.
It is on iTunes
Occupy This (Occupy That)!!
The song mocks the Occupy movement in a Dylanesque manner.
I think music and humor are useful in the fight to restore sanity to Government.
I don’t remember the specifics, but I think the Most Ironic Moment award should go to the girl who complained that her $5000+ laptop had been stolen.
She went to agitate for redistribution of wealth. Her wealth was redistributed. Shouldn’t she have been happy?
I cataloged the insanity for posterity.
