PASADENA (CBS) — 2011 may quickly be coming to an end, but the ‘Occupy’ movement said it plans on sticking with its  same old strategy on New Year’s Day in 2012.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports organizers announced plans Thursday to crash the Rose Parade in Pasadena.

An organizer from the Los Angeles demonstration has launched the “Occupy The Rose Parade” website to rally supporters.

The protest will reportedly focus on the role of banks and corporations in the political process as well as the militarization of the parade itself, said organizer Peter Thottam.

Thottam is planning protests at at least three locations along the parade route.

“There’s no single location, there are a number of strategic spots that we are scoping out and we’ve got various ideas, all protected by the First Amendment,” said Thottam.

The group expects upwards of 40,000 protesters at the parade — a turnout that may be used to make what organizers are calling a “human float”.

But no matter what happens, Thottam asserted the assembly will be peaceful and law-abiding.

“I met with the Rose Parade staff and the Pasadena police department,” he said. “Everything will be on the up-and-up.”

Organizers with the parade have so far declined comment on the planned protest.

    Thats innapropriate in my opinion…. this is FAMILY time – where CHILDREN are – to upset them with political reteric while they are with their mommies n daddies watching a parade in unacceptable…. shame on you !!

    1. jnsesq says:

      And you think this anarchist/communist/Democrat crowd cares about your family time why again?

      1. Steve Roberts says:

        Because everything they do is always “for the children” (including abortion). They really are a very compassionate mob.

      2. thnik says:

        is that what drudge told you?

      3. hatesmindlesscomments says:

        Drudge doesn’t write anything. Just supplies links to online new. You don’t thnik much, do you?

      4. thnik says:

        someone telling you what you should know is like a teacher telling kids to put C for every answer on a test.

        matt drudge said i should read this!

        dont thnik much for yourself do ya?

    2. mojo says:

      It was during our family Christmas, many years ago, that I was surprised as I sat close to the television. There was a Christmas parade on TV. As they all do now-a-days, they have a host and hostess at the TV networks review stand who interview people in the passing parade with a wireless microphone. A horse drawn wagon/float stopped. The driver introduced himself, and then introduced the man next to him as “his lover”. Not what you would expect to see and hear during a parade. You just never know what to expect from people.

      1. ditchdigger2 says:

        I don’t see very well, or hear very well, pushinging 70, but did I hear this mare was stump broke, or was he speak’in of the drover, strange behavior.

  2. Don occupy my streets says:

    Run them over with the floats. This people need to get jobs, the only thing this people are doing is costting tax payers money. People go get a job, they are never going to listen to you is the goverment you are trying to fight.

    1. deerman says:

      it’s time we working conservative people stand up to these worthless pieces of human debris. Do what it takes to disband them.

      1. JBS Puddintane says:

        Pray would be most effective.
        These people are satan’s children. Just as he can not create anything, but only pervert that which the Creator has made, they can not create a beautiful float of flowers. But they can most assuredly pervert a parade.

    2. commie_shooter says:

      I agree. Run them over or shoot them with rubber bullets. I am tired of these deadbeats disrupting the public arenas funded by tax payers. Of course these free loaders don’t care because they pay no taxes. I am 29 years old and have had a job since I was 14 (started as a bus boy at a Shakey’s). I say this so people know that not all of my generation is a bunch of communist, free loading deadbeats.

      1. Kate says:

        Thank you for being a hardworking young person. The people in the Occupy groups are of all ages. Some are from my generation, people who should have grown up long ago. These groups are not endearing themselves to most hardworking people and will help get a new president elected in 2012 who will do something about these groups. How many of us could pitch a tent in our city for weeks and get away with it? It is political and I am afraid it is the Democrat, leftist, liberals who are allowing it to happen.

      2. Joseph S Haas says:

        But C.S. you’re “on the take” as in when you get your payroll check you “cash out” in FRNs, right? (;-)

      3. Annalee says:

        But Joseph S Hess, you falsely accusing people of being on the ‘take’ says VOLUMES about YOUR LACK OF CHARACTER!

  3. The Voice says:

    How does this have any barring on there discord for big business and big brother? These knuckleheads need to form an agenda, correctly point there accusations in the right direction, and declare there expectations. Granted, they will probably not match what the actual concern is: Banks benefiting from hard working people by inappropriate charges and theft of bail-out payments, blatant corruption of government and city’s illegal double dip practice, complete distance of police officials from proper public service, and over all disconnect of US government policy’s completely dismantling the Americans civil rights. Get that right, and take it to where is belongs, banks, major corporations like Wal-mart using only foreign products and stealing American jobs, the entertainment industry for over the top budgets and outrageous actors and producer salary’s( pay them based upon total receipts of a film or viewership of a program), sports teams expecting us to pay for a players multi million dollar pay. Also pay them based on how well they do. Teachers, labors, retail people, those who service these chowder heads should really be the ones who make decent wage. Those are the 99%. Not unemployed people who don’t want to look for a job and those who take advantage of the system by falsely getting assistance.

    1. Astonished says:

      I has no bearing on it. All this does is cause discord and disruption and ensure that they get a lot of air time for their 15 minutes of fame. All it does is shove their cause into everyones face.

      If they actually try this they may get an unexpected surprise from the crowd, many of whom have their children with them. I know I wouldn’t want someone shoving their political agenda in my face like that.

    2. jasmine says:

      So I suppose you advocate that the GOVERNMENT determine how much someone should be paid? Or do you think you should make that decision? I don’t know what you do for a living, but I doubt you would be too happy if some government entity determined that YOU make too much money for the job you do and cut your salary.

      It sounds great when you say something like the rant above, about how “sports teams expect US to pay for a player’s multi million dolllar pay”…. guess what – nobody is making YOU pay them, If you don’t like that actors, actresses, sports figures, etc, are paid millions of dollars, then quit going to see their movies, quit watching their games, stop buying their CDs, DVDs, etc.

      1. Shaka-kahn says:

        What about the taxpayers of the city of indianapolis (and probably more cities throughout the united states) who’s taxes go to pay for these multi billion dollar stadiums? We do pay for that. And the government does determine how much someone makes. By raising your taxes with the more money you make.

    3. bill says:

      So now Walmart has to buy and sell what you fools say?
      They are not AMERICAN JOBS the jobs belong to the businesses that create them.
      You leftist keep making it more and more beneficial for businesses to move THEIR jobs overseas.
      If you don’t like it start your own business and drive it straight into the ground.
      If you really want to help outlaw teachers being in a union so we can go back to teaching kids skills businesses want instead of them being force fed anti American hatred the democrats like to spew.

  4. bouce says:

    This clearly shows that they are anarchists more interested in mayhem than social, economic and political change. They’ll just p*ss off everyone and turn them against them…

    1. heatherfeather says:

      The tolerance for these vermin is fast running out. Soon, the vermin will see that their protests are going nowhere, and resort to violence. Then, they will be scrubbed. We need a real war on drugs to eradicate the drug vermin and their morally empty sub-culture.

  5. wobbles says:

    These jerks seem to be working overtime finding reasons for average people to hate them. They’ve actually succeeded in an incredibly short time in making me hate them more than the banks and corporations. And every time they do something to stick it to all us little guys in the name of “raising awareness” for their cause, they lose the support of more and more of us.

  6. Mike says:

    Hey Lisa, what are you talking about “over militarized extravaganza”? It’s a parade of flowers (Parade of Roses!) If you have a problem with it, ignore it. Just goes to show, if the majority do not agree with this minority, no one can enjoy. There is such a thing as pushing your luck. Maybe you can break a few windows while you are at it and tell yourselves you are changing the world.

    1. jnsesq says:

      “if the majority do not agree with this minority, no one can enjoy.”

      That’s been the mantra of Democrats and their trial lawyer facilitators for forty years. Meanwhile, get that Christmas tree — er, Holiday tree off that parkground.

      1. Big Bear says:

        We need a military coup. Strip the lawyers of their paper power, round up the druggies.

    2. Astonished says:

      Why not. Last night when they were protesting at Bank of America in downtown, they started throwing things at passing cars. Wan anyone explain to me how that helps their cause??

      Peaceful demonstration my eye — Not hardly.

  7. John Freiheit says:

    The Constitution Of The United States Of America protects your right to LAWFULLY ASSEMBLE. It does NOT protect your right to OCCUPY. You have perverted the right to LAWFULLY ASSEMBLE into a socialist / anarchist revolution. You are the lowest 1% of society run by the top 1% of society and you don’t even know it. We the remaining 98% are SICK OF YOU. YOU ARE NOT PROTESTING, THAT TAKES A DAY OR TWO AT MOST…. YOU ARE OCCUPYING!!! END THE OCCUPATION NOW, ARREST THE OCCUPIERS AND GIVE THE LAND BACK TO THE 98% !

    1. debrarae says:

      That’s what they ‘should’ have done when the #OWS crowd stormed a Reagan Tribute dinner and assaulted a elderly disabled woman. Instead 911 hung up on them, TWICE!

      Then the miscreants had the gall to say that ‘she’ threw herself off of the stairs in spite of video evidence to the contrary.

      1. Alice Ramirez says:

        The criminals should have been arrested. Instead, they seem to be getting away with it. Eric Holder’s selective enforcement of laws is reflected in the selective law enforcement in this instance. And the 911 operators who hung up on them need to be fired.

    2. hiway280z says:

      The right to protest does not give them the right to set up camp and live in their filth It does not give them the right to stop business from operating and itsure does not give you the right to destroy property. One man to protect himself and business went out with a shot gun or some other type and the crowd ran like hell, so they can be stopped.

    3. Get out of my streets says:

      Can’t no longer enjoy our parks or land marks with this people who need to go get a job and are costing me money preventing law enforcement from patrolling the city and keeping it safe. Police should enforce a court few if by a given time of day they are still there they should get arrested don’t allow tents or camping at anytime

  8. Sal says:

    Occupy movement shoud march on the White House. The source of the trouble they complain about is in the Oval Office. Their refusal to do such is
    testimony to the fact that they are a socialist movement that expects to survive off the labor of others

    1. russ in nc says:

      Obama is one of them. Occupy White House indeed.

  9. debrarae says:

    Oh so you approve of the #OWS crowd crashing a private event and throwing a elderly/disabled woman down the stairs because it will ‘spice’ things ‘up’?

    Hateful much?

  10. OccupyThis says:

    Well Said, John.

  11. Bill O says:

    John, good news. Your caps lock seems to be working now.

  12. Susan Reed says:

    Have your own parade if you don’t like this event. Plenty of families and people like it, It doesn’t need your immature, disruptive “spice.” Sign up to march in the parade if you want to “outnumber” marching bands or military participation. Do something constructive, not destrructive, and maybe people will listen.

  13. BigBoa says:

    “End the occupation now”….


    The mighty Boa has told you why O’Bozo needs to be removed. The mighty Boa also told you why these thug bums need to be removed and why the PEOPLE should go ahead and do it.

    In response, the mighty Boa received numerous replies, most of which were critical and from many claiming to also be “conservative” and calling the mighty Boa’s call “shameful”.

    Well, now it is time to say “Told ya so”…. And also, with the new outbreaks of disease, the mighty Boa hopes it will be the relatives of these same morons who wind up contracting these diseases. See if they think THAT is “shameful”……

    Also, enjoy the dictatorship.

    The mighty Boa warned that he would not endlessly share his wisdom and insight and the time to remove it has arrived.

  14. Granpa says:

    John, that would actually be 99+%.
    Anybody else bored with all this?

    1. debrarae says:

      Are you going to the parade? Are your grand kids? IF your grand kids are ASSAULTED by #OWS people, are you still going to be ‘bored’?

  15. showmerancher says:

    Now that the Fulton Co. Health Dept has identified cases of drug-resistant TB in the Atlanta OWS crowd, good luck with having the OWS folks there mingling among the Rose Parade folks. (Organizers have moved between/visited numerous cities and can have brought the disease with them.) This is a drug-resistant strain of a serious airborne disease… you can get it from the person standing next to you. Enjoy the parade.

  16. George says:

    And these clowns want normal people to take them seriously?

    1. ladydi says:

      These clowns are Anarchists..supported quite obviously by the unions….they are only interested in rioting and disrupting..they have no purpose and no agenda. They are merely thugs.

  17. George says:

    “militarized” flowers? Are you really this moronic or are you paid to look as stupid as possible?

    1. Sally Burke says:

      I think a lot of them are paid (rent-a-mobs). Looking stupid comes naturally.

      1. jasmine says:

        They are – just look for the pre-printed, mass produced signs that they hold up. It may have started with average people who were genuinely upset, but the “movement” has been co-opted by Unions, The Communist Party (or “Worker’s Party”), etc., and other radical groups who want to overthrow the government.

    2. ditchdigger2 says:

      You give up your freedoms, your children will be slaves.

  18. Shannon says:

    Hey, as a proud band member myself, this parade is the ultimate destinaiton for any school marching band. I’d hate to see such a special day be ruined for any of them. I will say that if any of these people do get in the way of a marching band they will be run over.

  19. James says:

    When can we treat them as enemies of the Constitution, and take appropriate action? They ONLY want to divide, get Obama re-elected, destroy our economic system, and shred the Constitution. They are disgusting, spoiled, socialists that want handouts!

  20. Rome Is Burning says:

    OWS is the beginning of Obama’s “Civilian Defense Force”… his brown shirts. Why do you think he is cutting the defense budget, cutting military benefits, and demoralizing the military? So there wont be a force to stand up to his personal military.

    1. Chris says:

      If that’s the case, then Obama has a long way to go. Two privates and an MP dog could take out these losers.

    2. Youngkwang says:

    3. Muhammad says:

      “Beware the bneitalg sheep, for they may be wolves in disguise.”–MEI can’t find the article, but they surveyed about 600 of those nutjobs in NYC. 32% called for, “a violent upheaval of our current system”. 98% supported “changing the current system of Capitalism for ‘something else’ “. I blew the local Occupy movement out of the water one day. Me and my cousin had just taken another evil black rifle off the streets, and decided to hear them out. With one question, I shut them up, and then was heckled.“Did you include Hollywood, musicians, sports stars, and DC in the 1%? They are also the evil rich.”

  21. cinderella says:

    these people have no ability to create anything but chaos…

    their only goal is to destroy anything that is of value… monatary or otherwise… to anyone else…

    how dare they disrupt a trsafdition other have worked so hard to build that has done nothing but promote goodwill for the city and the state…

    OWS is nothing more than but a bunch of selfish spoiled rotten little entitlement snot nosed cry babies

  22. Robert Slaughter says:

    This occupy crowd is only proving to the world why they are not wealthy. In addition to be NOT wealthy, they will have the added benefit of being very unpopular.

  23. agatematt says:

    Having covered the Tournament of Roses for nearly two decades while a reporter and editor in Southern California, I can not think of a less “militarized” event around than the Rose Parade. In fact, the only real “military” units that march in the parade on a yearly bases is the West Coast Composite Marine Corps Band and the band of the Salvation Army — whose members, in both aces, are hardly part of the so-called “1 Percent.” Of course, badly injured Iraq war veteran and actor J.R. Martinez (All My Children & Dancing With the Stars) will be the grand marshal. Well, may be the big brave OWS protesters can surround his vehicle and spit into his burnt face while chanting “baby killer” over and over again.

    1. Sally Burke says:

      Don’t give the little shyttes any ideas.

  24. Carl Curmudgeon says:

    The Tournament of Roses Committee requires all float entries to be covered entirely with plant materials.

    You can’t miss ’em.

    Look for the 40,000 walking cannabis weeds…

    1. jasmine says:

      OH, that’s good.

      If they get lost on the parade route, we will know why.

    2. Pooja says:

      Why still need to pop up to reply? Can't the botutn return the code to the comment form and scroll to it? Thanks for this, but hope sb can improve.

  25. Dr. Dimento says:

    Go ahead…make my day

  26. jasmine says:

    “The group expects upwards of 40,000 protesters at the parade —”

    Oh, please, 40,000? They will be lucky if there are 400. Watch them try to claim that the people who turn out for the parade are there to support OWS. After all, these jerks claim to represent the “99%”.

  27. lc says:

    Manure for the flowers? Well, maybe not. At least manure eventually produces something useful.

  28. BigBoa says:


    You are quite bright. Hopefully you have had an opportunity to share in some of the mighty Boa’s wisdom when it was previously shared. If so, you’ll certainly be prepared……

  29. jaline says:

    I refuse to watch these jerks. First sign of them during the parade and our TV will be turned off…period. Do they care how much some people pay to get good areas to watch this thing? We went back in 1974 and it was NOT free…paying people to sleep on the sidewalks to hold our spots, food, and bus fare (from 65 miles away).

  30. flyover country says:

    This is what happens when a parent gives in to the demands of a two year old throwing a tantrum; they grow up to be (ahem, cough) fine, upstanding citizens known as OWS that care so much about others that they have to ruin a parade.

  31. Get a life says:

    Yep it’s all about them, you know the adult children

  32. fecal_heroes says:

    Liberal, Neo-conservative useful idiots and critics of Assembly, and frankly haters of truth and freedom, exist by feeding on the entrepreneurial, middle class.
    Which explains why the nation’s prayers are with the millions being victimized by selfsame Zionist apparachiks of the Fed, IMF and World Bank. And with the Anonymous brigade.
    For they know, the bad children and parasites who are proletariat will never admonish the Crony Capitalism feeding their addictions and narcissism. A special interest needful and earnest of all the hearty, steamy excrement patriots can provide. Sh!t and p!ss on, noble flea-baggers!

  33. gaymedia says:

    Disrupting that parade is a very quick way to go to jail and to get in a big ol’ fist fight with hard-core parade watcher. This will be Occupy’s LAST mistake if they choose to make it. IDK WHAT they are talking about it being militarized. It’s FLOWERS!

  34. Carolina says:

    The sign “Eat the Rich” is laughable! If you eat the rich, nobody will be around to make money to support your sorry ass!

    1. Chris says:

      Details are not their strong suit.

  35. Jim M says:

    Human float? S**t doesn’t float.

  36. Jeff Campbell says:

    I just wanted to say something to those that call these people “anarchists”.
    They are not anarchist, they are Communists, a true anarchist would not bother to protest or in fact bother anyone period, they would simply go Home and not asked to be bothered or have some Government entity push them around.
    An anarchist would never ask for more government or more laws.

  37. Barry Levy says:

    when conservatives win an election the liberals go nuts, and protest and look for the courts to overturn legislation.

    When liberals win, they say the system works.

    What a crock.

    Charge them for permits, have them get necessary liicense fees for the funds that they are raising, and proper reporting.

    Charge them like any other group for clean up and police and security.

    And make sure that they don’t get any treatment special, that other groups wouldn’t have, and that would mean that with a parade permit for the Rose Bowl, they won’t have any permit, and they should be removed immediately from the scene, arrested, and taken away.

    1. debrarae says:

      They’ll just go to the government for money, and guess what? The Government will give it to them, just as they handed them ‘Non Profit’ status!

  38. Wilbur Post says:

    There is a HUGE assumption to their claims … they will wake up early enough. Too easy to sleep through the parade.

  39. Truth says:

    The entire Occupy Movement was created by the Democratic National Committee and Obama. They have already calculated that Romney will be the Republican nominee and that the only way to beat him is to create an anti-business climate in which they can portray Romney as a corporate beast. Demonize the strongest asset of your opponent.

    1. mehiimentalities says:

      Actually OWS was created and inspired by, conjured up by, ADBUSTERS magazine, an anti-capitalist, anti-American, anti-corporate rag thats been pushing their socialist krapp onto every fool that happens to pick up the mag. They are located in Canada, thats where it started.

      They probably conjured it up along with the terms created by the Obama administration like the whole “1%” stuff, all that kind of socialist leaning odd stuff.

      But it started really with that magazine. They even try to get graphic designers go against their employers, way back with some kind of designers manifesto where they brainwashed and encouraged them to not design or do work for Nike or other big “evil” corporations.

      Foolishness, and now these fools… a spectacle of wackery.

  40. Joe says:

    NEEDED: A CITIZEN’S DEFENSE LEAGUE to physically counter (and remove if need be) these Occupy Goons. Now they’re foreclosing on the First Ammendment for the rest of us who don’t agree with them– note their Fascist tactics directed Michele Bachmann today.

    This is still America, this is still about WE THE PEOPLE- when our Liberal slug politicians and officials will not enforce laws for our health and safety, then its time WE TOOK THE LAW INTO OUR OWN HANDS like the Spirit of 76.

  41. ladydi says:

    This parade is beautifully run and organized by the Tournament Committee…I think they will be able to handle any of thee idiots very efficiently. I am not worried.If they try to disrupt, they will get what is coming to them!

  42. ted says:

    We should do what Castro did – pack up all these mentally ill and criminal elements and ship them off someplace. Maybe Cuba or Venezuala – they can take Michale Moore also if someone can figure out how to lift that fat arse so far away.


  43. TpUSA says:

    The occupiers orriginated in the WhiteHouse, and
    are known as Obama’s sewer rats. Union bosses
    and ACORN people set up the mobs.

  44. STL Hawkeye says:

    I see where TB is breaking out in the OWS Atlanta site. So there’s hope for Pasadena yet.

  45. agatematt says:

    So, the story says that the OWS protesters are all ready to turn out on New Year’s Day to interrupt the Tournament of Roses parade. Sure hope they all turn out on the streets of Pasadena on Jan. 1 because the 2012 parade isn’t going to be held until Jan. 2. New Year’s Day falls on a Sunday and when that happens the events are held on Monday. The reason is that that there are more than a half-dozen major churches along the Colorado Boulevard parade route or on nearby streets. The joke among TOR members is: “We don’t march on the Lord’s Day and the Lord doesn’t rain on our parade.”

    1. Cathleen James says:

      The original parade used horses to pull the floats and people used horses to get to church. That’s why “never on Sunday”.

      The first mile of the route is ALL paid for reserved seating and that is where the television cameras are. I seriously doubt the protestors would pay for seating -or that seating is available to be purchased without buying a whole tour package-. This means they will have to camp out further along the parade route (it is five miles long) and so many people do that- and have very regular places and routines they adhere to, that it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, for those thugs to ‘occupy’ any sort of area to be able to do what they (are suddenly able to) plan.

  46. junebug says:

    This mob could really do some good, if they started helping the needy, instead of laying around in some park, urinating and defacating on businesses property!

    Atlanta’s mob now has drug resistant TB, rapes in NYC, theft…these mobs won’t even report crimes to the police!

  47. Steven Moshlak says:

    Sorry, but their “Free Speech” rights are no absolute. These people have become a clear and present danger to the health and welfare of the citizens who pay taxes and wish to enjoy the Parks and Recreation System in an unfettered and non-threatening manner.

    They should have been rounded-up, starting with 415 Cal PC and expanding it to the destruction of public property.

    I am reminded of the Tennessee Ernie Ford story about the mule that would plough a field, if you said some “sweet nothing’s” in it’s ear. The salesman hit the mule, between the eyes, after saying “sweet nothings” in it’s ear. Why? First you have to get the mule’s attention.

    Ignoring the problem has been an “epic fail.” Time to bust some heads and send a message. Just because Mayor V. doesn’t mind the smell and the refuse, doesn’t mean that the City of Pasadena has to put up with this malarky. Time to tuen the “Economic Justice” freaks into prison labor or export them back to Los Angeles.

  48. Frank says:

    Defacing a Wells Fargo bank, attempting to rob a Bank of America with a giant fake check, conducting rapes, violence, vandalism and robberies within their own camps, disturbing the peace, pushing old people down steps, burning the flag, causing riots with police, breeding tuberculosis, instilling discrimination, dismissing the homeless from being fed and all of the other capitalist hypocrisy shown in their protests and now this event is just another reason to hate this movement even more.

    “Voice”, for heaven’s sake at least use “spell check”. Try a period once in a while. Use a few less commas. Arrange your sentences so they create a cohesive thought. Now do it again the right way.

  50. Cathleen James says:

    “Met with Rose Parade staff and Pasadena Police Department”…

    The organizers of the parade are the Tournament of Roses Association, which has been selecting the Royal Court, the Queen and dealing with those activities. They just announced and have been promoting the Grand Marshal for the Parade a week ago. When did he meet with this “staff”?

    More lies.

  51. FR says:

    I supported the movement up until now since I’m going to be marching in that parade.

    I think a concerted effort needs to be made to illustrate the link between these animals and the Obama administration who is behind it on every level.
    This astro turf, leftist answer to the Tea Party is nothing more than a way to divert our attention from the Democrat party’s attempt to crash our economic system and I think they hope that the useful idiots of the occupy movement will serve as the crisis Obama needs to exploit for political gain.
    This is Obama’s little attempt at a revolution and in the end, it will fail.

      “Republic Empire Falls” is a racist little biyatch!!! Internet Ironman

    2. patricia says:

      wait. calm down. take a valium. why are you so angry at the republicans and the tea party movement? Do you even know why you’re angry? You should be angry at Obama, Soros, and Harry Reid who has blocked every vote even the one that Obama wanted voted on…the jobs bill. Hello, is this thing on? Your oh-so-holy president is the reason the jobless rate is up, and everyone is so angry. He knows how to divide and conquer and your anger is just making it easier for him. So good luck and I hope you like living under Communism in China because pretty soon they will buy us outright. Again, good luck to you. (OH and by the way even in a socialistic/communistic society, someone always rules and someone is always rich.)

    For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag. – Zell Miller

    Typical of the stinking liberals, ruining everyone else’s good time. The stinking liberal doesn’t care though, they are supreme killjoys.

    Liberalism is a true mental illness. Isn’t there an island where we can ship these stinking liberals? The stench is becoming intolerable.

  56. Mike Merryman says:

    You really don’t want to mess with Pasadena on Rose Parade day. You’ll disappear and never be heard from again. Even the home grown thugs come out to enjoy the parade.

  57. Mad as Hell says:

    People. We are trying to get jobs, that are on-existant. The rich and the republican party does not want to help. I have been unemployed for over 2 years now. I am a well educated degreed mechanical design engineer with no future if nothing is done by the government. We should kick the bankers (who are the real people running this government, along with the republican party, who has at every step prevented Obama from doing anything, even lying to the people about where Obama is from. We need a government run by a democatic/socialist (not Communist, two very different meanings) leader to get America back on its feet. If it needs to get publicity during prime events like the rose parade, then so be it. I am too frustrated by doing nothing any more. Power to the Occupiers, I will come to join you on the 1st of 2012.

    1. Jeff says:

      Maybe your a loser…..with a degree.

    2. patricia says:

      since you’re well-educated, maybe you can tell me what job is ON-EXISTANT? Keep up your protest and maybe those Hooked on Phonics folks can help you.

    3. ENA now says:

      What a LIAR you are! I saw head hunters at #OWS in NY, NM and other states. All I saw with the #OWS demanding jobs … was #OWS JERKS saying …. “I can’t work for the DEFENSE Department!” “I won’t work for Disney” …. and a myriad of other companies.

      Sorry but having interacted with #OWS before, I don’t believe a word out of your LYING, MARXIST MOUTH!

  58. Gringo says:

    Will the NASCAR float put them into the wall?

  59. Jesus would love these people says:

    “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye?

    You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye”
    (Matthew 7.1-5 ESV)

    1. Sharah Jane says:

      Wow the old “Judge lest ye be ‘judged’ line”

      Well dearie, I’ve had personal ‘experiences’ with the #OWS crowd. And so I am in a position to ‘judge’, And from my personal experience, the #OWS are nothing more than union backed, marxist thugs who have thrown a old, disabled woman down the stairs, and used their own children as ‘human shields’. And have thrown around more anti semitic and christian slurs than the Nazis, Skin heads, and KKK combines.

      So I ‘humbly’ suggest you stop using the bible, when YOU refuse to abide by it YOUR SELF! I call THAT HYPOCRISY!

  60. Alice Ramirez says:

    I hope the police are well prepared to deal with this trash. First Amendment rights does not mean disrupting a meaningful day for everyone else. Selfish trash!

  61. j says:

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close bad cases.
    A corrupt DEA poisoned my dog to death because I called the San Francisco Attorney General’s office to complain that the FBI and DEA where fabricating evidence and stealing from me.

    1. killer says:

      who are you? and why are the FBI and DEA even interested in you?

    2. Mehiimentalities says:

      And was NORCAL also on your as?

      Everyones out to get you! Aahhhh!!


  62. ditchdigger2 says:

    The working people, unions included, are cutting their oun throats, with this administration, they are the enemy of the private sector trade unions, catering to civil service, mandated extortion, into the DMC, to further destroy trade unions, thru EPA, environmental extortion to stop production of any kind. Wake up.

  63. patricia says:

    “But no matter what happens, Thottam asserted the assembly will be peaceful and law-abiding.” — How can this be guaranteed? All the Occupy sites have been the scene of some form of violence.

    This is unacceptable. The Rose Parade. I don’t even really like parades but when you start messing with grandma’s tradition, you’re crossing the line. Do these people even know what they are protesting against? Doubtful.

  64. Albert says:

    They are finally clearing out Zucotti Park. The mayor has declared that its a health hazard. So it looks like it may finally be over. The mayor says they can return eventually but it doesn’t appear too likely as NYPD was used to remove the protesters with the National Guard on standby. So far 217 arrest have been made and several people have been pepper sprayed and hit with an acoustic discomfort device. Maybe the rest of us can finally enjoy the park now.

    free speech DOES NOT INCLUDE ILLEGAL CAMPING PARKS ETC . about time LA put a stop to this . ruining rose bowl parade , just shows how ignorant etc these ie protesters are . a parade is no place to demonstrate . the welfare office is down the street . this PIPE DREAM of protesters is not going to work .

  66. Occupy Wall Street has got to be the most stupid bunch of idiots to ever band together.
    They have no real clue as to what they are doing.
    In Los Angeles, they accomplished nothing and left a mess that cost the city a lot of money.
    In Seattle, OWS blocked docks and tried to prevent people from going to work.
    Yet, they claim they want people to go to work.
    The entire Occupy movement is a joke.
    They talk for the entire ninety-nine percent, but of those ninety-nine percent of the people, about ninety percent are working.
    Now they want to be a part of the Rose Parade.
    The parade is loved by millions of people who make it a part of their New Year’s celebration.
    It is not an event to to be used by protesters.
    People want to see the beautiful floats, marching bands and everything that this parade offers. They don’t want to see Occupy and their silly signs.
    I will be at the parade and the last thing I want to see is them.
    A recent survey concluded that less than twenty-five percent of people agree with the Occupy movement.
    Their ninety-nine percent is more like twenty-four.
    Yes, Occupy is a joke.

    Hi Paul, this is an aewmose feature, my question is…. I get the button on the comments, but when I go to reply, a window pops up and I post my reply to the comment and this reply goes to the bottom … what I would ideally like is, that my reply is directly below every individual comment, is that possible?
