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.

Reid: Millionaire job creators are "unicorns," "don't exist" because a guy on NPR says so

Talking Points Memo provides this video of a delusional Harry Reid saying there are exactly zero jobs created by millionaires, citing an anecdote by National Public Radio:

"The Republicans say the richest of the rich in our country, even those who make millions every year, shouldn’t contribute more to get our economy back on track. They call our plan, time after time, a tax on job creators, and I say so-called “job creators.”

"Because I say that, Mr. President, every shred of evidence contradicts this red herring. For example, there have been many outlets, but I’ll concentrate on one. National Public Radio went looking for one of these fictitious millionaire job creators. A reporter reached out to the business groups and a tax lobby in the Republican Congress hoping to interview one of these millionaires. Days ticked by with no luck.

"Many of our job creators are like unicorns, they're impossible to find and don't exist. That’s because only a tiny fraction of people making more than a million dollars, probably less than one percent, are actually small business owners and only a tiny fraction of that tiny fraction is a traditional job creator."

There you have it.  Socialism works, because conservative groups didn't want to waste their time talking to a NPR activist.
