Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Trenton: a guy who represents some of the wealthiest towns in the United States has some advice for you.
Jon Bramnick of Westfield, who represents towns like Chatham, Millburn, and Warren, has this to say:
“Blocking traffic and clogging sidewalks creates confusion and disruption, but won’t produce a single job or help the economy.
“If protesters want to get their point across, they should knock off the stupid stuff and demonstrate without violence and mayhem.”
He apparently subscribes to the Stephen Colbert theory that linking arms and protesting in public constitutes “violence and mayhem.”
And, to point out the obvious – the fact that a random state assembly member is putting out press responding to OWS – means that they are getting their point across.
Thanks for the validation, Assemblyman!
