About 70 "Occupy" movement demonstrators lined the sidewalk in front of In-N-Out Burger on El Toro Road on Thursday night, shouting slogans and cheering as passing drivers honked.There are 3,010,232 people living in Orange County according to the latest census. The less than 200 folks who represented #OccupyOC are the .000066%, not the 99% as advertised. If they truly represented more than a tiny fraction of the population, don't you think more people would be willing to join them in their public temper tantrums?
Near John Wayne Airport, an additional 50 protesters gathered, and 50-60 more showed up at Hart Park in Orange. The gatherings were among the more than 460 organized nationwide through moveon.org as part of a day of civic action. The objective: show how far the "99 percent" has spread beyond Zuccotti Park in New York City's financial district, highlight a message of economic inequality, corporate influence in government and greed, and put pressure on Congress to tax the wealthy and create millions of jobs.
It's time to stop paying attention to these losers.
