How about Occupy the Hilton when the weather gets cold?
Rayannina gave me this link yesterday:www.arcamax.com/thefunnies/doonesburyThanks Ray!
Occupy down sleeping bags on air mattresses?
I personally would have no problem occupying South Beach.
You’re welcome, LWP!
The missing comic, two days running now, reminds me of the first ever strip (see final panel):http://www.gocomics.com/doonesbury/1970/10/26
@DylanThomas2.14159Um, I think that’s a pennant on the wall. Drawing precision wasn’t on GT’s horizon yet.
How about I occupy Hilton when my life gets slow…?
It’s gone! Not visible when enlarged or even at the D’bury website. What happened!
Thanks for posting :)
two days running, no comic..
Occupy Palm Beach?
GT writes as if it’s only kids. From what I’ve seen both in NYC and in our local version, there are people of all ages and all walks of life.
I’m getting the strips in my e-mail.
Where is the comic? Did Trudeau not pay the rent :)
After a few days of really cold weather, most of them will be back to occupying Mom’s basement.
How about Occupy Jerusalem? O, wait. It’s already occupied.
This forum, populated as it is by people with a point of view, would seem to be an appropriate place to thank all veterans on this day in their honor.

I haven’t seen this comic in 2 days … what the heck?
That’s cuz you’re a yankee fan. from: a Boston fan
Second day in a row I can’t see the strip. GoComics is starting to suck.
Alex’s snake has your answer, Joanie.“One snake, one vote” (credit jrmerm)
Actually, I live in Florida, and there really is a concern that many northern Occupiers will come down to join us when it gets too cold.
Socialism for the rich is always OK with those who don’t sympathize with OWS. It is just socialism for the rest of us that they can’t stomach. Many of them aren’t millionaires themselves but have bought into the American myth that they can get there by pulling up on their own boot straps, even if they don’t have boot straps to pull.
I’d like to see the strip but all I’m getting is the comments!! Happy Veteran’s Day from one vet to all others though! No matter where you are int he world right now my prayers and thoughts are with you.
i guess i’m just stupid, what happened to the strip?
Today is Veterans Day but the stock markets in New York, London, and Paris are open. I mention these 3 cities because these countries were on the winning side when the guns fell silent on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.It is time we got our priorities straight and appropriately honored the men and women who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for their countries.This is especially true for the countries I mentioned because these 3 nations now have volunteer armed forces.
to all the posters that are complaining about this cartoon not coming up. It’s your computer. It’s been fine on my computer both days.
There seems to be a connection between doonesbury.com and gocomics.com. The strip has appeared on other sites at usual time the last 2 days but not on the 2 I mentioned. The strips eventually did appear on doonesbury.com and gocomics.com at the same time.
Joannie really needs to do something about her earrings. They keep ending up above where her ears should be.
There’s always "Occupy Duval Street.http://www.zazzle.com/occupy_duval_street_tshirt-235055673596681810
I lost the strip months ago; I figured it’s the rightwing filtering software at my company. So what I do is go to Buy Print, then expand it.
Thanks to all the veterans who hang out here, and those that don’t , for all you’ve done for us.
And we know all the OWS people are stoned…how?
Practical ways for OWSs to stay going through winter: porta johns and showers, large outside heaters (rent), army cold-weather tents (rent), gloves, hats, sleeping bags are blankets in daytime, and a few army “butler” buildings for breaks from the weather. OWS does have $. Use it to STAND .
I might even join the “Occupy Ft. Lauderdale” movement.Thank you to all Vets for your service to our country.
Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, Veterans Day – Doesn’t matter what you call it. Thank you. Thank you to those who went before, thank you to those who did not come home, thank you to those who came home, thank you to those still out there..People protest about a lot of different things. The OWS and all of us should remember – we are alive, we are here, we have the right to protest and the right to speak out without fear because of veterans.
We could gather up all the OWS encampments and relocate them to a single location. Call it District 9. (just kidding).OWS is breeding crime. Why? In part because it is an uncontrolled mob that stays in place for days and weeks on end. Most other American protest movements have some sort of formal or ad-hoc leadership. They go out one speak their message, and go home..The more unruly elements of society are naturally attracted to uncontrolled mobs, so OWS artificially boosts that demographic wherever it camps out..That’s not a comprehensive explanation for the OWS-fueled crime wave, just one factor. The crimes range from the apolitical to the very political, so there’s more at work..Joanie is either an idiot or is being drawn to the Duke side of the Force. People who exploit mobs tend to not be lower-case-d democratic types.
Perhaps the OWS anonymity is strategic. If OWS were to choose leaders and define themselves as some kind of Opposition, Bloomberg could create a file on them and—-like Damascus—-send in the troops to purge them.
@petermwolk I bet DylanThomas3.14159 was referring to the line about bugs in the system not the artwork.
I just read about Occupy Orlando. Is that close enough?
I’ve got a public service announcement.
The 5.0.1 update for the iPhone is out, and it addresses issues dealing with “voice recognition for Australian users using dictation”. So now Siri can understand what they’re saying Down Under, which shouldn’t be necessary if they spoke English the way it was meant to be spoken in the first place.
At today’s Veteran’s Day parade in SF special focus was on Iraq veteran Scott Olson, the OWS protester shot in the head with tear gas by police in Oakland a couple of weeks ago. “According to a Facebook page dedicated to Olsen, members of the military community are taking care of their own and asking the public to do the same.”
Too bad it’s raining.
FriscoLou: “English the way it was meant to be spoken”? Who decided which way that was?
As I understand it, the purest English is spoken in the Appalachians, with the drawl used in Elizabethan times in England. Would that suit you?
There are folks there that have camped out in worse under our flag in several conflicts, and no doubt can do it again. And they can teach the others, no doubt.
@FriscoLouWhen it comes to understanding spoken English, ex-colonials in the Western hemisphere (Americans and Canadians) have an advantage that other non-British lack.Let me illustrate by two examples. I was traveling in Greece when I met an ex-army officer fluent in English. He complained bitterly about visiting London and finding the cab drivers “didn’t speak English.”Recently I read about a woman from India who lost her job at a bank in London because she misunderstood what a Scot had communicated to her. “It wasn’t my fault,” she said. “The man couldn’t speak English.”My point is that Americans and Canadians expect variety. We’re confident that our “accentless” California- or Ottawa-speak is clear to everyone who knows English. But can we always understand Brooklyn-speak, or Birmingham-speak?I don’t know Canada well enough to say what dialect there leads to confuseion. But I remember when my wife and I were looking for a bed-and-breakfast in Quebec. The English-speaking landlady couldn’t accommodate us, so she called a friend and asked: “Charlotte, avez vous oon shamber avec leet matrimonial poor say swar.”The garbled French was fluent and perfectly clear to Charlotte, who put us up for the night.
Commercial video in right panel plays automatically. Bad. The pause button does not work. Really bad.
pd, the things other people do with our language. When I was in the Apple store getting the phone activated, my call (Sprint) went to an off shore call center that sounded like a satellite connection in Peshawar. They got every thing wrong right off the bat, and after 2 hrs and about 5 layers we were able to get the call back on shore where we could communicate and activated the phone in about 5 mins. It took all the christlib instincts I could muster, just to maintain.
The last three days remind me of the Bolsheviks how to exploit the"useful idiots". No. Grandma is not Lenin- she is Trotsky. Elizabeth Warren is Lenin!
How would you know that a “College Break” strategy isn’t sutstainable if you don’t try it?
