    What is a two year old doing in a tent at a protest site where it has been reported people are doing drugs? I guess one of the next demands will be for free daycare for protesters.

    I’m curious why DHS (Human Services not Homeland Security) isn’t sweeping the camps to get the children the heck out of there.

    The Occupy movement advocates socialism. The Soviet Union was socialist. Hey didn’t the USSR send their trouble makers to exile in Siberia? Now there’s a good ideal, when ever Occupy protesters commit crimes, we should send them to “occupy” Siberia.
