    Just like the Tea Party … oh wait …. the Tea Party paid the cost of their “protests” didn’t they? Never mind …

  • exceller

    then you have to add the damages to local businesses. In their crusade against the rich these morons mainly hurt average people just trying to get by.

  • donh

    This is the do it myself off budget executive order stimulous spending Obama threatened when Congrees refused to pass his Jobs bill NOW.

    And there are a good many that are not included in that list. Occupy Burlington (Vermont) has cost a pretty penny, including a murder investigation.

    They’re actually Occuliars! The Make Believe Media will spare no effort regarding their darling movement.

    and the 99% will have to foot the bill for these 1% loons.

    Every organization that has paid fees for public events should immediately demand their money back.

  • wernamess

    What’s the point of trying to repair the damage? They will simply be cheered on by the left and do it all over again.

    Check out the Ezra Levant clip from Toronto, where he takes an infra-red, heat detecting camera to an occupy site and has a clash with the hired drones there. His 4am photography shows that 90% of all their tents were empty tents!! Occupy Mommy’s and Daddy’s warm comforter at home is more like it! LOL There’s so much more. You’ve got to see the clip and the discussion afterwards. Worth it!!

    Why must productive citizens foot the bill? Send it to Ubamas campaign. His politburo are behind the entire fustercluck.

  • Jimmy

    We’ll have to borrow the money to pay for it.

  • paul52

    Absolutely right #7. Any group that paid these fees should file suit after suit for refunds or bill the Peebaggers for ALL costs.

  • mcc

    #10 — there ya go. Just my thought. He’s got the money in his campaign coffers. Fork it over, Barry.

  • Jean

    Priceless for the so called 99% which is really less than 1%. I hope we can rub Obama’s nose in this next year.

  • JPeden

    Impossible! As recently “intellectually grounded” by Elizabeth Warren again, Marxist “labor” can never create debt, Amen. So someone must have ripped the Movement’s “profit” off the backs of each of the little struggling ‘movements’ themselves when they weren’t looking and become $20 million richer!

    This is the Obama view of Government at work, jobs and legislation by civil unrest. The new norm under Dems in charge.
    Win Win for the unions first they get Obama campaign funds to make the mess, then they get taxpayer funds to clean up.

  • Patty

    A great many in the Police, EMS and sanitation departments are going to have extra money for what the taxpayers have paid them.

    But can you imagine how many unemployed could be employed for the millions wasted.

    Perfect example of blatant waste and this could have been prevented if Obama had been a respected President.

    And I’m sure liberals will deny that fact of how much all this destruction is compared to how many people, little snails, lizards, fish, no telling how many more that they don’t know about, that big corporations have destroyed over the years with all the pollution, global warming, dead lakes, river’s, and streams, including the current continueance of pollution that is still claimed is being pumped into the atmosphere, the water, and the ground by big corporations that they haven’t closed down yet.

    So all this cost, hmph! who cares? They don’t look at what they are doing as costing anything to anybody. Yeah, right, just like smoking dope doesn’t hurt anyone either, right?
