Occupy Miami and Homeless Should Unite Against "Greedy People That Suck," Says Weedmanhippy
For years, someone calling himself "The Weedmanhippy" has been wedging cryptic, self-promoting fliers into the front of New Times boxes across Miami Beach. At first, we were kind of annoyed. Then, earlier this week, we finally gave in and called him.
"I know those Occupy Wall Street people did something here in Miami the other day," says Blank, who claims to have lost his savings in the stock market. "I am a casualty of their war."
For someone who leaves his cell phone number plastered around town, Weedmanhippy was remarkably surprised when we gave him a call.
"I'm a real warrior in a war that these Occupy Wall Street people have begun," he says. "When I lost all my money, I found out that people suck and they are greedy. Things have to change in this country."
