The #Occupy DC goons held a protest yesterday in Washington DC. Several of the young hoodlums were arrested during their day of unrest.
Hey look… They caught the Cowardly Lion!
To top it off… US taxpayers were stuck with the bill for the port-a-potties. The protesters are broke and couldn’t afford to rent them.

America’s taxpayers, already on the hook for watching over the Occupy movement’s three-month seizure of Washington’s downtown McPherson Square, are getting stuck with another bill to cover the police protection and port-a-potty rentals at today’s Capitol protest.
For today’s protest, where several hundred Occupiers toting signs lingered in the muddy grass of the Capitol Grounds, over two dozen U.S. Capitol Police were assigned to ring the lawn, most on foot, some on bikes, and others in 18 cars, buses, and trucks counted by Whispers.
Plus, the government rented 17 bright blue potties from Don’s Johns, which were parked across from the Capitol Grounds and in the shadow of the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial.
The Architect of the Capitol’s office wouldn’t comment on the costs or protection.
But Don’s Johns told Whispers that renting 17 potties costs about $2,100.
A miffed Capitol Police officer told us, “I can’t believe we’re paying for this. But they have no money. They were complaining about parking prices.”
