As we know by now Brookfield Properties (and for all intents and purposes the City of New York) blinked over the proposed clean up of Zuccotti Park. Yet here is a most curious reaction to it from TheStreet.com:
Following the announcement by Brookfield, there was a sense of elation and euphoria. Many protesters wearing various union T-shirts returned to work while others moved from the park to the nearby Sprint (S) store in order to queue for the new Apple (AAPL) iPhone 4S.
For people bent out of shape over capitalism they sure do love material possessions. Depending on how many gigabytes you want to store, the Apple iPhone 4S retails for between $199 and $399.
I guess this means James Oppenheim’s poem “Bread and Roses” will need a rewrite. The new verse could look something like this:
No more the drudge and idler — ten that toil where one reposes —
But a sharing of life’s glories: Bread, Roses & An Apple iPhone 4S —
How about them apples?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
