TAMPA (FOX 13):

Tampa police say they’ve confiscated bricks and pipes from a rooftop in Tampa, and discovered what they say is “anarchist” graffiti.

The anonymous symbol was spray painted, along with the number “99″ in red paint.

All of it was found on top of a building at 1000 North Florida Ave., which is at the corner of Florida Avenue and Tyler Street.

Increased Police Presence at Occupy Tampa: http://t.co/tyYKYxGs via @youtube

The liquored-up occupier in the YouTube video says the increased police presence at the filthy Occupy RNC Tampa camp makes him feel as if he’s in a “police state” like Beirut or Afghanistan.

Poor baby. Maybe a visit to some Wounded Warriors who have actually been to a real police state might sober him up.

If anyone from St. Louis is going that direction, these two girls need a ride to Tampa. Just make sure you have good ventilation in your vehicle:

Activities include “Shut Down Bain,” work groups, more work groups and more work groups, and you won’t want to miss:

The West Tampa Occupy Choir!

“A Lighthearted Activity for all to enjoy/participate…If you don’t sing,  just clap along, shake a homemade rattle or beat on a plastic bucket…We will be learning two or three protest-inspired songs: “Redemption Song”, by the king of reggae, Bob Marley, “This Land Is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie, possibly “Get Up, Stand Up” ;again, a Bob Marley masterpiece of a protest song.”

As always, sunlight is the best disinfectant.

And rain. Occupiers are sensitive souls that tend crawl back into their smelly tents at the first sign of inclement weather.

Dear God — Please send a hurricane to Tampa. Sincerely, America. #tcot #p2

He’s on his way: Mayor Cory Booker rescues (another) dog

http://twitter.com/#!/CoryBooker/status/350426744953647104

Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker famously rescued a dog from freezing this January, but the senate candidate’s heroism knows no season. Today the hands-on mayor came to the rescue of another dog in distress.

Well, Booker’s aspiration to move into national politics was no secret, but one has to wonder if Senator Booker will be able to delegate things like animal rescues that make him such a hero to his constituents.
