Americas Irish Spring soap requiring slackers hit Detroit.
The Occupy Detroit group -- inspired by the protests on Wall Street seeking social, political and economic change -- plans to meet at 4 p.m. today at the Spirit of Detroit statute on Woodward. The group will march to Grand Circus Park at 6 p.m. and then occupy the area with sit-ins, pickets and other forms of protest.
Go figure, Darlene. BTW, nice Detroit zip code.

Nolan Finley, the best snark of the weekend pulls the whole "occupy" routine all together with his Sunday editorial.
I have seen SOME tea party types exclaim that these kids should be courted into the "tea" movement so "they won't be lost to the left." I argued I could offer no support other than to "agree the fed should be ended." And THAT argument however, needs even more discussion. My main point against saddling up with the occupy crowd, is frankly that they are little but a tool of this administration's allies. They are too closely aligned with Marxist and redistributive desires to be even slightly cozy. These kids are already tools of the left, and would be no more inclined to listen to conservative principles than Jennifer Granholm or Saul Alinsky.
Take your pick whom might be more radical.
In the editorial, Nolan calls them out as the radicals more aligned with the "sympathetic" administration of Barack Obama who as a matter of course ignored the millions of Tea Party types arguing for a return to limited government. He notes as "odd" the disparity in acknowledgment between those two groups. And as 'peace loving' lib-tards go, the occupy crowd doe not disappoint. Nolan closes with:
"State lawmakers in New York have received emails reportedly connected to Occupy Wall Street containing this cheery call to action: "It's time to kill the wealthy."Eager, yes. As am I.
