I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

Taylor Marsh thinks Sarah Palin and/or the WSJ is dumb. They don’t know that “Occupy” means “Confront”

 

She cites him [Schweizer] in the first paragraph of her Wall Street Journal op-ed today on, of all things, Occupy. However, the title is very misleading: How Congress Occupied Wall Street.

This may not be Mrs. Palin’s fault, however. It’s likely that of the Wall Street Journal‘s title jockey’s who are so ignorant they don’t know that to Occupy means to confront. The last thing Congress has done is “occupy” Wall Street.
