99%’rs: Organize State by State then Nationally, develop Databases,…prepare Your Party to assume Power.

a humongous vote of "no confidence" in the two parties of bozos the country is currently bogged down with.

Obama’s Presidency: 3 years 9 months in service to 1% and 3 months bribing votes from the 99%

It is absolutely unconscienable that a Democrat or Republican should ever again hold the office of President.

Occupy Orange County/Occupy Irvine

Occupy Orange County began with a question by one person, "what is the financial center of Orange County, CA?" The answer turned up as Irvine, CA.

We occupied on October 15th. Until Tuesday, October 25th we Occupied but were circumscibed in the extent of our occupation. Without Council guidance the police chief opted to enforce equitably the city codes. They were exceptionally accomodating of our presence but we had to take down our encampment by 10pm and rebuild at 6am; between the hours of 10 and 6 we remained awake, on our feet or seated.

know you want justice

Occupy World Series

As a life-long Cardinals fan, I did not wake up the day after the World Series with the same exuberance as the night before. Instead, I woke up feeling guilty. Was I guilty for being one of tens of thousands in the 99% who bought a World Series ticket? Guilty of jumping up and down like an excited little kid while cheering on the 1%

Occupy SF for 10/28-30

The mood has been festive these last several days. People were glad that the occupation remains in place, and Halloween weekend in San Francisco is still special despite the cancellation as of a few years back of city-wide parties. The Critical Mass bike ride did its usual thing but this time with cyclists in costume. Their usual ending spot for their ride is in front of our camp, and they typically have a little dance party. There were a couple of kids there. Unfortunately, I observed some people drinking beer but I think I was the only one who noticed.

What does the Gop have up its sleeve?

I know they have very deep pockets.With all the obstruction and blantant disregard for the 99%ers, what do you think they are planing for the election in 2012?

A Capital Idea Part 90: The Genius of the Occupy Wall Street

holiday grog

If the government no longer offer the conduit through which our sentiments and needs are addressed and our rights and safety protected, and only the "free" market granting those wants, then must we not also unwisely forgo the oversight and referendum that government would provide (Mr. Paul) in favor of libertine oligarchy (the danger of which threatens us now)?

If I disrupted peaceable society as much as David Koch I’d be arrested.

i'm just saying, this two-tier justice system blows.
