Fake cleanliness

i learned something today: also (fake) hippies, homeless people and other occupiers of boston want to keep their hands clean.
yes, we finally went to see "occupy boston", i have seen occupy wall street (here and here), and occupy amsterdam (here), and so it was time to check it out here. it was not scary, just smelly. my pics turned out rather crappy; it was so grey out today, and not that much going on. yes, many tents in a very small public piece of green, smelly people, and many signs. signs on how to behave in the tent city, and signs to protest one thing or another... i will post another pic of it soon (when i made up my mind about it all, and decided which pic is the least crappy one). as you can see here, occupy boston has hand sanitizer, just like every other public building, supermarket and what-not here in the usa. as for me, as long as they have not given up on hand sanitizer, even amidst a stinking mess of rotting food (just opposite of the food stand) and smelly homeless people, i think its not that important. if they are not willing to give up their fake sense of cleanliness, this obsession with killing real or imaginery germs.... they cannot really have a cause... 
i wish south park would dedicate an episode to this, i think it would be really funny... (this is a fine example)

Yes, the American way of protesting and sanity! That is important. But I think the real problems in US are much bigger than in Amsterdam. The homeless people here were angry at the occupiers because of their tents which they don't even have.

Funny photo, not at all what you expect in a post about Occupy Boston :-)
