No, left wing educators are like cockroaches expose them to light and they scurry for the dark. And I'm sure those dishwashers and waiters that got layed off are big time evil capitalists. Now..should'nt you be in the class room brainwashing some 17 year old kid to believe in your socialist BS.

Blame the pigs with no respect for 1st Amendment rights, not the demonstrators.

The looming depression and bank failures caused by the OWS certainly has me concerned. Glad Wall Street firms aren't up to that kind of stuff.

The OWS crowd should smarten up and start eating breakfast, lunch and dinner at his cafe. That way the OWS people stay healthy and the cafe owner stays in business = a win win for both sides.

Perhaps if the Wall Street Bankers could spend some of the billions in bonus money we taxpayers gave them for wrecking the economy, down at his snack bar, things could get better for him. He could run a "Credit Derivative Burger" thing, a burger filled with complete bull $hit sold to suckers, while those in the know could "default swap" for some real hamburg meat for an extra dollar.

Except for the fact that the ows losers wouldn't be paying for their meals. Maybe the cafe owner should start selling rape kits to make up for lost income, as they seem to be needed at the ows events.
