Boca Resort | Expected site of protest this weekend.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We don’t mean to make fun of the Occupy Movement — but there is something about “Occupy Boca Raton” that caries with it a certain element of Saturday Night Live humor, and an image of a bunch of guys named Bernie, women named Pearl, and bronze Lexus sedans parked haphazardly along side of this group demanding better walkers.
But we don’t mean to make fun of the Occupy Movement.
