Occupy Orlando, Day 3

Facebook Link:


I had to drive my wife down to Florida Hospital at Princeton and I-4 so that a specialist could look at my wife's foot (it's been in a boot now for five days). On the way back we stopped off for a few minutes at the Occupy Orlando site to see how things were going. Just like the day before the park was lightly occupied with some two dozen occupiers. I found a tent set up for media production, and another was going up as well in preparation for the heavy rain that's supposed to pass over the peninsula the middle of the week.

Tea Party A$$holes

While I was there a group of Teabaggers came by smokin' their big stogies and in general trying to "understand" what the Occupy Orlando group "wanted", which meant they stood around pontificating about the evils of Socialist Government and how unbridled capitalism was so much better. I give a lot of credit to one of the group who tried to include them and in the  process enlighten them. Too bad Teabagger minds are already poisoned and corrupted by their own corrupt ideology.

Honk for Solidarity

About a dozen of the Occupiers lined Magnolia at one of the exits off of I-4. Many of the cars actually honked as they passed. Whether in solidarity or not is a different issue.
