    I do miss the days of totalitarian regime parading their weapons in front of presidential palaces.

    Today's itinerary:

    Noon: Spontanous demonstration against the corporate world, check our Facebook and twitter pages for instructions and meet at noon in front of the B of A. Bandanas and hoodies optional.

    12:20: Smash a few windows, overturn some trash cans, stomp a few cars, and generally rage against the system while walking a few blocks in our Nikes.

    12:40: Meet at Starbucks for a skinny latte, compare photos on your iphone.

    Did anyone else make those little paper cone baskets and deliver them to friends with goodies in a ding-dong-ditch fashion? It was the Communist Easter Bunny.

    I'm not sure what I want to see more, the "Occupy" protests fail miserably today, or for them to be a huge success.

    Nothing will help your brand more in America than associating yourselves with Communism's biggest holiday. Genius.

    "Who's Street? Our Street!" chants outside my window. Interfering with my streaming tunes frankly.

    I will celebrate May Day as I do most days of this month - by sneezing repeatedly thanks to all the damn pollen.
     
  12. Should we read anything into the fact that the President chose May Day to attack Mitt Romney for having Swiss Bank Accounts? What say you comrades?
