Categories: Occupy OC

UPDATE DEC. 29, 7:30 P.M.: For those of you hoping Occupy activists at tonight's protest would have stormed the glass-encased offices of  Scott Baugh, kicked in the doors and found Wisconsin governor Scott Walker on his knees fellating the Orange County GOP Chairman while dollar bills rained from above, keep dreaming. 

What you would have seen at the intersection of  Macarthur Boulevard and Von Karman was 50 plus activists gathered on the sidewalks carrying signs decrying the Wisconsin republican known for his views opposing gay rights and collective bargaining for unions.

​It's been said Walker, who is visiting California for the Rose Bowl, was on hand to visit Baugh to raise money while folks back home attempt to have him recalled.

 Members of Moveon.org were on hand as were Occupiers from Irvine, Santa Ana and one gentleman from Occupy Wisconsin. 

When asked how things were going for occupiers in the land of cheese, William Gruber said "We get along very well with our wonderful police and firefighters. They're getting jammed too." Gruber then described Walker as a no good swine trying to jack money off west coast "Richie Riches." 

Nicholas Dorsey of Occupy Santa Ana echoed a similar sentiment. "I think Scott Walker is a jerk and needs to pay for what he's done to the unions in Wisconsin, what he's done to the middle class and what he's done to the 99 percent."

ORIGINAL POST DEC. 29, 5:00 P.M.: Dim-lidded Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker approaches the land of citrus...And members of Occupy intend to roll out the welcome mat. Walker, a Republican, is known for his aversion to gay rights, and collective bargaining for unions as well as low approval ratings. 

He'll be visiting the Newport Beach offices of Orange County GOP Chairman Scott Baugh today--possibly to raise money as cheese heads attempt to recall him.
Costa Mesa mayor pro tem Jim Righeimer, who has fought to outsource his own city's labor force to private companies, apparently won't be on hand for the visit, though he had a few encouraging things to say to the Daily Pilot about Walker and the Wisconsin unions. "Wisconsin wasn't a controversy; Wisconsin was an awakening," Righeimer told the Pilot. "I feel bad I'm not going to be in town to see him."

Occupiers will be at the offices of Scott Baugh at 4:30 p.m. to let the politician know how much they "appreciate what he and his fellow crop of GOP governors have been doing to the lower 99%  percent of us in this country," according to the Orange Juice blog. Stay tuned, and see you there!

50?  Looks like <20. 

If you go over the Irvine location, it's dead -- only empty tents.

We also have to consider why he was here. He is trying to turn Costa Mesa into a charter city and we need to let people know about this. The citizens of Costa Mesa are coming under fire for what is supposedly a huge political deficit but what is really a ploy to outsource workers for the benefit of the 1%. http://repaircostamesa.com/hom...

"Dim-lidded?" It never fails to amaze me what passes for journalism these days. No longer is there even an "attempt to appear" objective.

"Stay tuned, and see you there!"

Dear OccuBrandon:

Can you do me a favor and ask the Occupy OC (Irvine) people, how much money did they collect; how much is left, and who is holding it?

 So your openly saying that you have no journalistic integrity?  Perhaps Gustavo called you out of the bullpen a little early! 

"appreciate what he and his fellow crop of GOP governors have been doing to the lower 99%  percent of us in this country". Lets take a look at the leadership of YOUR party why not go straight to the top!

Does Nancy Pelosi  who is in that one percent have your best interest in mind... 

Nancy Pelosi’s socialist political views are exactly what have kept her elected in San Francisco, along with the flow of union campaign money. The staunch “union supporter” Pelosi has even received the Cesar Chavez Award from the United Farm Workers Union. But her $25 million Napa vineyards and winery, she and her husband own is a non-union shop.The hypocrisy doesn’t stop there. Pelosi has received more money from the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees union than any other member of Congress in recent election cycles.The multi-millionaire investors own a large stake in an exclusive resort hotel in Wine Country, the Napa Valley Auberge Du Soleil Resort. It has more than 250 employees. But none of them are in a union, according to Peter Schweizer, author of “Do As I Say, (Not As I Do) – Hypocrisy of Democrats” and a regular contributor to the New York Times.Pelosi is also partners in a restaurant chain called Piatti, which has 900 employees. The chain is – you might have guessed — a non-union shop.The 68-year-old Pelosi has spent more money on facelifts and cosmetic enhancements, and Armani suits than any self-centered, faded Hollywood star. But does Pelosi represent your 68-year-old grandma’s values?This is who YOUR leader is..But you have the STONES to talk shit about the GOP! Gustavo, Pull this rookie before he gets hurt! Or let him stick to writing about 2nd rate bars in Fullerton.

And I thank you for the burrito recommendation in SF!

He said "Us" you say he aint no Dem but when he scribes a piece like that hes open for ridicule... 

I'm just pissed off that I found out my most hated Dem congresswoman owns Auberge... I've stayed there! I gave that Witch money!

And Mitch is our version of Culichi 67
