Armed Occupy mobs attack ports, rob workers of paychecks

"Hundreds of Wall Street protesters blocked gates at some of the West Coast's busiest ports on Monday, causing the partial shutdown of several," the Associated Press reports. 

"In Oakland, shipping companies and the longshoremen's union agreed to send home about 150 workers, essentially halting operations at two terminals. In Portland, authorities shuttered two terminals after arresting two people who were carrying weapons," the AP reports. 

"It's disappointing that those union folks were not able to go to work today and earn their wages," SSA spokesman Bob Watters told the AP. 

"This is joke. What are they protesting?" trucker Christian Vega told the AP, sitting in his idled truck carrying a load of recycled paper. 

The Occupy mob attack on the ports cost Vega $600.00 he needed to feed his family. 

"It only hurts me and the other drivers. We have jobs and families to support and feed. Most of them don't," Vega said. 

Police also arrested a number of Occupy attackers carrying deadly weapons, including loaded guns and a sword.  Several Occupy protesters have been linked to shootings, including an attack on the White House and a mass shooting at a North Carolina supermarket.
