"Occupy" Phase Two!

Oh, goodie.

The website encourages occupation or simple boycotting of retailers. The group cites a connection between fourth quarter profits for retailers, credit card usage and the stock market as being the source for the protests on the Friday after Thanksgiving. … 

In addition to encouraging site visitors to not spend money on Friday, the website encourages occupation, and “Occupy” protesters typically have featured sit-ins, on-site camping, slogan cheering and sign-waving as their modes of protest.  --AOSHQ quoting Commentary

They would be foolish--maybe suicidal--to get between shoppers and the stores on that day.  Prolly a good thing, overall.

That AOSHQ post, by the way, has pretty good intel on the old-fart Canadian Commie organizer of "Occupy."

So they're all about the workers, but seem to be willing to stop at nothing to make it impossible for those workers to do their jobs. Got it.
