and because its PRIVATE PROPERTY, they do not need a permit from the City.
Ironically, the protesters don’t need a city permit to occupy private property. And so far, while the police have maintained a strong presence in the area, they have yet to try to remove the protesters. Brookfield, the NYPD and the office of Mayor Bloomberg have all declined to comment on exactly how things at Zuccotti Park are being handled.

CNBC’s Jim Cramer reported Friday morning on Squawk on the Street that he’s hearing from business leaders off-camera that Obama is hated by business leaders. “The disdain is off the charts! This guy, he is hated like Jimmy Carter!”
Cramer’s candid insight came after news from anchor Melissa Lee that there was a sadness about the economy from many traders and about how The Conference Board said there was a 45% chance of the US going into recession. “They say that since 1988, every time that The Conference Board predicted the chances were higher than 40%, we soon went into a downturn.

Could the writing be on the wall for President Obama’s presidency?”
“Let’s take The Conference Board at face value. Let’s say that’s right,” Cramer responded, “I mean, look, you don’t understand, when you are off-camera, I mean — the disdain for this guy! I often find myself saying like Trump did: ‘Come on, it is America. He’s our President. Support him.’ The disdain is off the charts! This guy is just hated. Okay. He is hated like Jimmy Carter!”
