A revolutionary situation?


After an NYPD riot cleared Tiananmen ... er, Tahrir ... er, Zuccotti Park this morning, Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Lucy Billings issued a restraining order clearly barring New York mayor Michael Bloomberg from ordering NYPD to prevent the protesters' return.

Bloomberg is ignoring the order "while officials [go] to court to seek 'clarification.'"

Now that he's openly declared himself dictator of New York, I suggest that the protesters might want to forget Zuccotti Park and instead march on City Hall and Gracie Mansion to remove Bloomberg from power, by any means necessary, up to and including stretching the little bastard's neck.
