If At First You Don’t Succeed, Occupy Again

Early last week we reported on the massive protest undertaken by the Occupy Albany movement, regarding a hike in the minimum wage rate.  The occupiers were so upset with Governor Cuomo and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, that they marched right down to the Capitol, and staged a protest of their empty offices.  The locked doors also created quite a difficulty for the intellectually challenged group; they couldn’t seem to find their way around the building.  As a result, even the normally friendly local media took to mocking the group.

Not one to take kindly to a lack of positive press, the Occupy attention whores returned to the Capitol, specifically to stage a sit-in at Skelos’ office.  And every one that managed to get into his office – six if you’re keeping score at home – were arrested.

Via CBS 6:

Six Occupy Albany demonstrators were charged with misdemeanor trespassing in New York’s Capitol on Thursday in a demonstration aimed at raising the minimum wage.

The protesters were arrested and handcuffed by state troopers after they staged a sit-in in the office of Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos. State police say they were arrested after they refused to leave the office.

As per usual, the protesters sole accomplishment was a series of chants which showed off their epic rhyming skills  – because basic chanting at a 3rd grade level is oh so impressive.

Fortunately, we here at the Mental Recession have located exclusive footage of the Occupy Albany protest, seen below.

Whoa… Not sure how that slipped in there. Remind me to fire the video production manager later.

Anyway, here’s the actual clip of the Occupy Albany minimum wage protest, which pretty much amounts to the same thing – a group of losers pretending their message trumps all.

Best part of this clip?  The group of them chanting, “the whole world is watching”.

No … no they’re not.  I had a good 10-12 people at a cookout last weekend, and more people were watching the grill than were watching you Occupy Albany.

If you spent half as much time looking for a job as you do protesting during other people’s work hours, then perhaps your job performance could dictate a raise in wages.

Let me break it down into basic syllables that even you can understand.

It’s hard to hold on to a job – when you keep acting like a knob!

Your movement IS stoppable, shampoo and soap is possible!

See how easy that chanting business is?
