Well, here is something that should probably be filed under Friday Fun. But I would prefer not to pollute that barely-famous section with the likes of OWSers.
For all of the DNC and Obama wedding ceremonies and cork popping when it comes to politically and ideologically copulating with the OWSers (which some of them helped organize, partially with your tax money), they still will revert to the status quo.
That is, the status quo when it comes to the unwashed, Starbucks drinking, talking-points reading loons interfering with the Magic: The Gathering ceremony that will be the 2012 Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, NC.
From the Charlotte Observer:
To prepare for the Democratic National Convention, the city of Charlotte is considering an ordinance that would prohibit camping on all city property, which could stifle the ongoing Occupy Charlotte protest.
In addition, the ordinance would prohibit the possession of “noxious” substances, along with items such as pipes, chains or padlocks if their intended use would be to block a street, sidewalk or building entrance.
While the DNC usually does an FDR Detention Camp sweep of the homeless and others they find undesirable in the days and weeks leading up to their convention, with the OWSers, it seems like that local officials are poking about for a “solution”. Read, appeasment with their peasant class.
Mayor Anthony Foxx, a Democrat, said he was asking the city attorney’s office for an analysis on whether the city could legally evict the Occupy Charlotte protesters with an ordinance passed after they began camping.
“I don’t have a legal answer to that question yet,” Foxx said.
For the DNC, Foxx said it’s important to observe First Amendment rights, but his primary concern is that “the public health and safety be placed at a premium.”
Walton said the draft ordinance was just written, and city staff hasn’t reviewed it yet. A copy of the ordinance was released Thursday after being requested by the Observer.
Walton said it is too early to speculate on whether the Occupy Charlotte protesters would be grandfathered in.
Maybe Tom Cruise should put down the L. Hubbard books and start rehearsing for a revisit of “Born on the 4th of July”. After all, Hollywood, just like the Democrats can do no more than recycle their own ideas nowadays.
