I just informed the Mayor of that fine city that I won't be sending any tourist dollars their way.

I have high hopes that this will strengthen the movement.

I am still trying to figure out what judicial procedure allowed the NY Supreme Court to throw out both the restraining order that upheld the protesters' civil liberties and the judge who granted it! Travesties like that will spur more people to take action!

Nobody can stop Occupy. Occupy is the only solution to a system of government that is broken completely. I live in a sleepy city but we do occupy: http://treegrower.org/Occupations/DC%20Occupation.html

there isn't enough space in the jails or prisons for all who will come out to support the OWS movement. We will grow untell every person who is in the 99% is on the streets and the walls of the 1% tremble. We are awake and in it for the long haul through police crack downs and winter blizzards. We will win in the end

It will be (D) voters who will, on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, evict all the ideas, ideals, and principles that OWS is struggling for.

It's the function of the corporate party's liberal "progressives" to ensure that either none or the least possible change for good occurs.

I watched a truly amazing movie last night called Amazing Grace made in 2006. It was about an 18th century English politician who fought for the abolition of slavery. What I heard sounded very much like what is now going on with the Occupy movement. The same push from the so called privileged class which was in favor of profit over human lives. Seems that nothing changes and the people of this planet have had to constantly stand up for and fight for our God given rights to equal treatment. We are constantly fighting for the right to live with dignity and some measure of comfort. The politican's name was William Wilberforce and he was a member of the privileged class in England at that time and he changed things. It took time, but he did it. He went on to fight for human rights until the end of his life. I endorse this movie as one of the most inspiring I have ever watched and give it 5 stars.

Seems to me, when viewing history, that everytime the people win, we settle into a complacency and then they plot to slowly take away our rights and every time when a tipping point is reached, we fight back. I don't know about anyone else, but I am personally very tired of this constant battle to retain human rights.

It will become stronger. The people are waking up. The city confiscated a 5,000+ volume library that had been amassed at Zucotti Park. It will be not only retrieved, but augmented. Knowledge is the beginning of power.

I have been waiting so long. I have hope for a nonviolent revolution. "Joy to the world! Joy to all the boys and girls! Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea! and joy to you and me!" Sing it! Dance it! Paint it! Learn it! We are living!

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
