The rat infestation at Occupy D.C. has become so serious that protesters should be cleared out of their encampment at a federal park near the White House, said Washington Mayor Vincent C. Gray.
The mayor's office also is seeking reimbursement from Uncle Sam for its $1.6 million in costs, such as police patrols, in dealing with the Occupy D.C. sites.
So every other protest group has to pay for permits and for clean-up, why are we not offering to pay for our environmental impact? Why are we forcing the 99% to pay for our messes? Why are we nor living up to our avowed standards? I mean really? How can we advance as a force if we can't pay our way??
