    Oh this is special. I just love grass root movements.

    :razz:

    Protesters at Friday’s “Occupy CPAC” event, organized by AFL-CIO and the Occupy DC movement, told The Daily Caller that they were paid “sixty bucks a head” to protest outside the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C.

    One protester told TheDC that all the “Occupy” activists were being paid to protest, and that his union, Sheet Metal Workers Local 100, approached him about the money-making opportunity.

    “I have nothing nice to say about Local 100. … They just told me ‘you wanna make sixty bucks? So c’mon,’” the protester said.

    Other “Occupy CPAC” protesters were unwilling to speak on camera because they were unaware what they were protesting and what the CPAC event was about.

    Does that meet the minimum wage requirement? Did they pay SS on the money? No way is $60 a living wage. And what about their health insurance?

    Who gives a rats ass what is stated by a rag started by Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel the former henchmen of the criminally insane Dick Cheney. When you find a source that is not bias get back with me. Strange how something of such implications did not find its way into the mainstream media. It is just bullshit. Corruption, Health care costs, The federal reserve, the housing market, wall street, fair trade agreements. Let us focus on that stuff as a country. Then we can fight over if condoms are a national priority.
