Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

Here's more about Occupy Boston sponging off of the homeless.

I've also been meaning to post this, on the Oakland riots last week:
Maritime operations at the Port of Oakland were shut down late Wednesday, port officials said in a statement, and "the port has been taking steps to help workers in the harbor area get home safely."

"Continued missed shifts represent economic hardship for maritime workers, truckers and their families, as well as lost jobs and lost tax revenue for our region," the port statement said.

Trucks that attempted to exit with cargo were forced to turn around, KCBS said. Drivers without cargo were allowed to pass.

"I just want to go home," one truck driver told the station after being trapped by the crowd. "Why are they on top of my truck?"
Which can be paired with this piece of chutzpah:
Monique Agnew got in front of a truck with a camper shell that was forced its way in. When it charged, she hit it with a
sign she was carrying.

She said she has been there for several hours.

"These people tried to kill us. I can't believe they are being that aggressive over a paycheck, over your own people fighting for you."
