Irony Free Zone

I guess the "Occupy" camp sites are irony free zones. It seems that the volunteer cooks at Occupy Wall Street are upset that a number of homeless people have been eating for free at their camp. To protest, they stopped cooking gourmet fare and served only brown rice and PB&J sandwiches for a couple of days.

From the NY Post:

The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday -- because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters.

For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad.
So, it's OK for them to want rich people to share wealth but their stuff is for them only.

LOL, too bad the homeless didn't descend on them in mass, bet they'd have left in a hurry!!!

Fox News ran a story that a bunch of ex-ACORN organizers were paying the homeless to carry signs. They probably figured meals were included but nobody bothered to tell the protesters. Which tells me that they are being used by the professional community organizers. The Occupy bunch is really providing a front for a group with another agenda.
