On #D12 #OccupyCS takes on Walmart, company store of the global plantation.

Occupy Colorado Springs in Acacia Park, Sunday December 11, 2011
OCCUPIED COLORADO SPRINGS- Showing the flag today on the Occupy corner of Acacia Park in advance of tomorrow’s 12/12 WALMART BOYCOTT. You might well ask why we passed on a sunny, pre-Chrismas shopping weekend to picket the 8th Street Walmart on a MONDAY. Easy. Our boycott is timed with other OCCUPY actions on #D12, the shutdown of Oakland’s port by #OccupyOakland and #OccupyDenver’s blocking of the Loveland Colorado Walmart distribution center. Solidarity. So we thought we’d dry our new signs today and recruit for tomorrow’s event. The cops came early.


In the interest of FULL DISCLOSURE, here’s the entirety of what was happening on the corner today. Something Native American, related to Hispanic American culture, involving to a troubling degree a number of Catholic clergy, having to do with what, the first occupation? The motorcycle cops were there to escort their procession along Tejon.

  1. If you and your merry band of useful idiots are triumphant, you will accomplish nothing more than getting a bunch of working Americans sent home. Without pay. During the season they are hoping will result in additional hours. Hours that would help pay for some sort of holiday celebration with their families.

    Your mother would be so proud. Not.

  2. Whazzup, Pubes? can’t handle the notion of people not doing what we’re told, being slaves?

    Admit it, you never gave three quarters of a fat rat’s ass for the workers. You sound like the description in the Gospel of John of Judas Iscariot rebuking the woman for putting the expensive ointment on Jesus’ feet. “Why was this not sold for 300 pence (a year of wages) and the money given to the poor?” This he said, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and held the bag…

    WalMart doesn’t even give its “associates” enough wages and benefits to match what they pay out to produce their labor, and you think it’s a “good opportunity” for them and us, they don’t pay the workers who supply the products even that much, and you claim your concern “Lies” with the welfare of the workers?

    I put emphasis and italics and quotation marks on the word “Lies” because you’re the one who “Lies” and you literally God-Damned well know it.

    Was it Yo Momma who taught you to lie like that, Toby? (Yo name Toby, Boy…) You want the workers to sell their future, and that of their families after them, for “a holiday celebration”?
    If you ever were a member of the Working PEOPLE you just showed your Sell-out side.

    You sold your own soul for whatever crusts the Masters throw you, please refrain from selling everybody elses’ soul.

  3. I mean, you DID mention that Wally World, if their Slave Market is closed for the day, through (according to you) no actions of the workers themselves, will punish the workers you feel so strongly about that they’d “dock” their pay, right?

    Any loss of business and profit WalMart suffered from the general strike is the natural consequences of THEIR OWN CRIMES OF GREED, THEFT AND THE SHAMELESS USE OF PUBLIC MONEY TO BLOCK ANY PROTEST OR LEGAL ACTIONS AGAINST THOSE CRIMES AND TO PUNISH ANY WHO DARED CALL THEM THE MURDERING THIEVES THEY AND YOU (THEIR SELF ANOINTED SPOKESFREAK) TRULY ARE.

    Soylent Green is PEOPLE.

  4. Stop complaining that people who work and pay taxes are not giving you, and people like you who pay no taxes, enough welfare.

    You are leeches.

    Occupy a job.
