    #OccupyWallStreet Large Tweet of the Day

    #OccupyWallStreet Large Tweet of the Day

    Large law firms.

    Oh sure, they’ll give thousands of pro bono hours fighting for the rights of Gitmo detainees, but remember why they are Large law firms.

    They have Large corporate clients including Large Banks and Large Investment Banks and Large Broker-Dealers who pay them Large Legal Fees so they can pay associates Large Salaries and partners Large Distributions so they can live in their Large Houses where they log-in nightly to check their Large Stock Portfolios.

    So if you #OccupyGitmo, Large law firms will have your back, but if you #OccupyWallStreet, you’re largely on your own:

    When you’ve lost the NYT have you lost the battle?

    Corporations and capitalists provide bathrooms for the anti-corporatists:

    “Ms. Tzortzatos’s tolerance for the newcomers finally vanished when the sink was broken and fell to the floor. She installed a $200 lock on the bathroom to thwart nonpaying customers, angering the protesters.

    Mike Keane, who owns O’Hara’s Restaurant and Pub, said that the theft of soap and toilet paper had soared and that one protester had used the bathroom but had failed to properly use the toilet. Both Ms. Tzortzatos, owner of the Panini and Company Cafe, and Mr. Keane said the protesters rarely bought anything, yet hurled curses when they were told that only paying customers could use their bathrooms.

    Steve Zamfotis, manager of another nearby store, Steve’s Pizza, said: “They are pests. They go to the bathroom and don’t even buy a cup of coffee.”

    Mr. Zamfotis closed his bathroom after it repeatedly flooded from protesters’ bathing there.

    A manager of the Burger King in question said he had no trouble with the protesters, though a maintenance worker at the McDonald’s, Deon Cook, said that in recent days he had been forced to clean the bathroom every five minutes.

    “I’m looking forward to it being over,” Mr. Cook said.

    Kira Annika, a spokeswoman for the protesters, wrote in an e-mail that she had not heard such complaints: “We were under the impression that the local business community appreciated our patronage.”
