Wallstock! Protected by Superheroes

Stay, Superhero, Stay

His powers of New York crowd-worming were unequaled, and I almost lost him at the October 5 rally. Pausing only to high-five small ecstatic children, he nearly ditched me, but thanks to the NYPD and their crowd-control driftnets, I finally drew even with him.

Pardon Me, Officer, But Are Anti-Gravity Heel Propulsion Devices permitted within city limits?

“Oh, Captain America, I’m so honored to meet you!” I trilled.

He turned. “I’m the King of America,” he informed me. “Oh, pardon me!” I said. “Would you mind describing your monarchy?”

“I’d love to stay and chat, but unfortunately, I’m on a mission right now,” he said apologetically. And with that, and before I could get a picture of him from the front, he melted into the masses, but I just knew I’d see him again. And sure enough, here he is on YouTube, along with his pal, WhateverMan.

Oh there is more to tell, Roasters, so much more. And I’ve oodles of photos to post, which I will, I promise, as soon as I recuperate from the ennervating effects of all that earnestness. And having a food cart roll over my foot. No damage, but a nice Viet Nam vet who was sitting on the sidelines with his 9/11 pamphlets and all told me I was likely to get gangrene, so until tomorrow I’ll be icing my toes. I have to speak to the King of America about this!

Protesters at Occupy Blo-No (that’s what the local hipsters call Bloomington Normal, my town) were pictured in the local paper hold a variety of gnomic yet impenetrable signage including one which said “End The Fed!” (Wrong re-love-ution, dude {or is it?})

So, has the protest coalesced around a particular policy goal? I can’t seem to devine a message that gets much more specific than Down With This Sort Of Thing

Meanwhile, Seattle’s superhero was arrested for pepper spraying a group of people while breaking up a fight.

Can’t wait to see the additional pix!

Mike, I’m so awfully sorry about Seattle’s Superhero Brutality problem. Perhaps your guy should change his name to the Maceinator, or Pepper Man.

Those hours in Stir wearing his fake six-pack abs must have gone awfully slowly.

@Jewish Steel, yep, there was an END THE FED. What with Socialists and Pauliacs, coming up with a definitive agenda would be difficult, but the Venn diagram would certainly include peaceniks. Haven’t buttonholed a Randian yet to see how “TAX THE RICH” goes down.

@Betty: more on the way! New computer has everything located in different places, so I’m moving a bit slowly, even for me. But lord forbid a Polly story be Newsworthy~

Perhaps your guy should change his name to the Maceinator, or Pepper Man.

How about Captain (Cap) Sicum?

Cap Sicum sics ‘em! I like it. Perhaps you can suggest it to him~~on his Facebook.

Or stand seriously upwind.

I can’t wait until the Very Serious Concern Trolls explain why costumed capering at OWS events only harms the movement, while Teabaghist tricorned patriot drag shows a folksy and endearing earnestness.

It’s this sort of cartoonish behavior that leads the rest of country to gaze upon—WHAT SHOULD BE A REVOLUTION OF THE PEOPLE AGAINST THE PLUTOCRATIC OLIGARCHS WHO HAVE DESTROYED THE WORLD—and mock what this protest—AND THE THOUSANDS OF OTHER VERY IMPORTANT PROTESTS BEING HELD ACROSS THE LAND—is all about.

If we can’t take ourselves and our protests seriously, why should we expect the very important news reporters from corporate-owned media outlets to take us seriously.

You didn’t see the Tea Partiers dressing up like it was Halloween in July, or sleeping in bags together and sharing things and probably smoking illegal weeds, no they were serious, grass-roots patriots who caught the world by storm and have re-shaped the very nature of political discourse and action.

Meanwhile, we get gay Tommy the American booty-burglar stomping around Wall Street making us all look foolish!
