Few people want to actually do anything (most preferring to “gab” or “blog”) so a few alibis might be useful. I’ve jotted down a few and numbered them in order to make things even easier. Now when someone asks the non-actor “What are you doing?” or “Please help with this.” that non-actor can just hold up the number of fingers that coincides with the alibi of choice (or maybe blink both eyes the correct number of times if the excuse prevents overt use of fingers):
1. Many claim they don't see a leader/s in the Occupy Wall Street. I say, if there isn't one may come out. Remember the French Revolution? It started in a bakery. When the Emperor/Elite took away the flour from the market to keep it for themselves, people could not bake/eat bread! The results is history!
I grew up during the Vietnam War Protest Era. One word leapt out of that time to describe what the military was trying to do to the Vietnamese people - Pacification.
The funny thing is that strategy is back and is being used against the people in this country. What is disturbing is both conservative and liberals want to pacify us.
My husband and I are so moved by the MOVEMENT!! We just want to share the rock anthem we wrote for the protesters. Part of the inspiration for it was Thom talking about the power of "Eve of Destruction" in the 60's. Okay we ain't Barry Mcguire, but here you go! Lyrics pasted here : )
I just checked and so far only some 2,200 people have selected the billboard they prefer in support of the "Occupy" movement. Unless more people show support for the movement it just may fizzle out. It's not much to do and it may be exactly what's needed to encourage those actively engaged in the "Occupy" movement to keep up the pressure.
Thom, are you aware that dish is now charging a fee larger than either HBO or Showtime for freespeech. I just discovered it this morning. What is going on? I will try to catch you on the radio.
"Celebrity Circle", "Rare Talent", Philanthropy Concert, Economic Achievements?!?! Clinton's bullshitification of America.
Ever heard the expression "doth protest too much" or maybe simply "you are trying a little bit too hard, what's really going on?" Or my personal favorite "you're laying it on a little thick what are you trying to get away with?"
Columbus Day blows man ! The whole idea that Columbus "discovered " North America is so ignorant and self-centered it would be laughable if the results of his bumbling "treasure hunt" hadn't been so tragic for the MILLIONS of indigenous people who died as a result of the ensuing "activities". Christopher Columbus was no hero, and there is nothing to be proud of or celebrate about his "discovery".
America's leadership string - arguably two war criminals and a criminal of high finance. Yeah.
Probably a little bit old news but it evaded me.
She's brought on a deputy secretary of state for management and budgets from Wall Street (Morgan Stanley's Tom Nides).
Dear Thom.. Myself and many others in our small farming community of Wayne county NY love watching your show except for your continued use of misinformation of the events of 9/11 and the Over played use of the "terrorist" term and the name that it was given Osama Bin laden , He was used in the exact same manner Lee harvey Oswald was and guilty of nothing else .
ALL our politicians should be ashamed!
"Of course, Slab City is no city, and no picnic. Some 640 acres of state-owned sand and scrub near the Salton Sea, it offers no electricity, no sewerage, no running water. Once, it was a Marine training base. When it was decommissioned, nothing was left but the concrete slabs where barracks once stood."
