Wanna occupy? Sorry Colorado Springs but your Wall Street is the military, yes the pointy end of our oppressors’ stick.

Nobody likes to draw the short straw, but isn't that already our lot living in Colorado Springs? Yeah, it's easy to protest Wall Street from the safety of a provincial backwater, our city even backed us with a permit, but is that really grabbing the imperial bull by the horns? The Occupy Movement has spotlighted how the world's 99% are oppressed by the ruling elite. It made more clear how true democracy is undermined by their military-industrial-corporate-banking complex. Now, doesn't a major chunk of that alliance operate right where we live? Think. It ain't banking or industry, and the corporations here orbit around the headliner of that lineup, the military, our city's dominant export. Yes, criticizing the military in a military town is not popular. Do you think the Wall Street protesters were a welcome sight to Manhattan's bankers? You can call to "End the Fed" online, or protest anything in the world from a digital soapbox, but a public demonstration is limited to what's in your local vicinity, especially if you mean to OCCUPY IT. Look on this as a curse or a blessing: The Zuccotti Park activists get to target sharkskin-suited traders, we're up against men with guns.

As NYPD destroys Occupy Wall Street, Americans get their own 9-11 moment, a state terrorist attack on their liberty.

UNOCCUPIED WALL STREET- NYPD goons put an end to the Zuccotti Park OWS rebel base tonight. Shall we declare it official, this night of the Occupy Wall Street Smack-down, that images of riot police are now ubiquitous as American Pie? Officer unfriendly closed the airspace, created a no-witnesses buffer zone, drove news crews away under threat of revoking their press passes, and razed the camp, tents, electronics and all, Occupy Denver Thunderdome smash shit up style.   Calls are going out for YOU to occupy your streets. And the day after tomorrow, November 17, is a General Strike. Unless principles of nonviolence [to Capitalism] dictate you may not resist consumerism.

Shock and Awe, Oderint Dum Metuant and the term 1%

It finally occurred to me why I had so much difficulty with the term "1%" as applied to Banksters. It's a biker term. Someone in the late 50s, a motorcycle enthusiast magazine, had said "99 percent of all motorcycle riders are decent, honest law abiding citizens" (very true) and it was a response to a growing distrust of motorcyclists by the general public. Probably fed to the public by propaganda because the Wall Street types would make more money selling people cars than bikes. So a lot of the Sonny Barger types (he was president of the Hells Angels) took to tattooing "1%" on their forearms where it would be really prominent. Some undoubtedly were and are Billy. You know Billy, right? Billy the Badass? Some had never met Billy and others had met Billy and got their lunch money taken and sent home crying. Menacing glares and display of anger can be faked and your average citizen wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Me, I ride because I enjoy it, and to get from one place to another in a reasonable amount of time. Never gave a crap about the Leader of the Pack attitude. Although I heard

WALL STREET IS WAR STREET: best slogan spotted at #OccupyWallStreet

Alright, that sign wasn't at today's rally per se, it's the cover photo of the book Black Mask & Up Against the Wall Motherfucker (The Incomplete Works of Ron Hahne, Ben Morea and the Black Mask Group), which a friend of mine was carrying at the protest. Reports are coming in that arrests, mace and kettling are ongoing at NYC march. 28140

The system was never broken, it was built this way. #occupywallstreet

OCCUPIED WALL STREET, NYC-- Protests enter their third workweek in Liberty Plaza where the cold has arrived but demonstrators are still prohibited from having shelter. Organized labor is rallying their members to join the occupation on Wednesday, with over a million union workers expected to march in solidarity. If you're not joining in, are you in the way? Colorado Springs Occupiers in Acacia Park are being joined by Tea Partiers, Ron Paulists, and Zietgeisters. The more the merrier. Remember, target the investment bankers down the block, NOON EVERYDAY. They're getting cranky.

NY #OccupyWallStreet protest is going to be this generation’s Woodstock. Are you going to miss it?

If you can't bum a ride to New York City, you are going to miss out, it's plain as that. But you can make the revolution happen where you are. The Egyptian victory in Tahrir Square wasn't achieved without simultaneous demos in Alexandria and Suez, etc. The earliest heavy casualties actually happened outside Cairo. In the Colorado capitol, a nascent #OccupyDenver is building steam. President Obama is making a campaign stop in Denver on Tuesday at Lincoln High School at Evans and Federal. That will be an excellent chance to force the media to break its blackout against the anti-capitalist uprising. What's there to say to President Obama? Nothing right? He's shown he answers only to Wall Street. But the message to the TV coverage of Obama, and to the people of Denver can be: Why is the bank-owned corporate media not telling you about #OccupyWallStreet? Reclaim our democracy from the bankers.   Colorado Springs is gaga for warmongers, bigots, Zionists and conservative educational campuses. The local Intelligence Quotient doesn't rise to the level of critical thinking, which is a heartbreaking trait in its youth. But there is an ongoing effort to aid #OccupyWallStreet's visibility. It's held on the noon hour, at

Someone should tell Obama that Troy Davis was a white banker. He’ll freak.

On the day after the state murder of Troy Davis, you've got to feel sorry for the Obamapologists who must have a lot more in a knot than their panties. How do you explain why President Obama couldn't intercede to save the life of accused off-duty-cop-killer Troy Davis? Because it would have been unseemly for a black president, the first, to intervene in the sanctioned lynching of another black man, whose number is lost among the countless. It would have been a formidable first, but Obama took the highroad, out of Dodge. Was it a matter of not stepping on states' rights? Because preventing an injustice would not have been worth it? To save a human life?

HA! NYC FiDi is now Occupied Territory

--by NYPD cops unfortunately, Wall the street remains barricaded from anti-banking demonstrators, but the broader NYC class-war zone remains contested as #OccupyWallStreet forces hold their protest beachhead for a fourth day. Violent arrests in Liberty Park have been made for wearing masks, trying to stay dry, holding signs, and defying the police commander's belligerence; hashtags and emails have been censored by Twitter and Yahoo, but physics dictates an opposite reaction, and the physics of activism guarantee it will be greater than equal.

why centipedes are called centipedes and millipedes, millipedes…

Not that they have a hundred or a thousand legs but because it's really common for people to stop counting once they've gotten to 36.   Such as a fellow who calls himself an "American Patriot" and links his comment name to a Fox website. Mentioned in the Pizza thread some really stupid number of "50" people in the People's Parade against the Wall Street Thieves. Apparently the fellow is rather upset that anybody would blaspheme against his god Capital and wishes to sneer it away. Much like the assmunch Banksters leaning over their balconies, drinking champagne and sneering, protected by the NYPD. The fact that they were so heavily guarded and the protesters peaceful allowed those sneers. Here's a screenshot of part of a video from the protest. there's more than 50 people in the first column of people not counting the cops. Now, if the THOUSANDS of people had been of a mind to do so, they could have overwhelmed the more than 50 cops and just dragged the smug Wall Street Thieves off their balconies and given them a collective enema with their own champagne and caviar. Which, given the recent history of Europe, bankrupted not by their

Make Wall Street pay for bankrupting, debasing & corrupting American dream

Yeah I know, it was SEPT 17, SEPT 17 and detractors laughed because the denizens of New York's financial district are not there to see a weekend protest, but Saturday was to get a running start on the morning bell Monday. Wall Street is not a street, a square or even a market, it's a den of thieves, privately owned, publicly subsidized, licensed grand larceny. Demonstrators are asked, why protest Wall Street when the decision-makers are in DC? Uh, candidate Obama's biggest backers were investment banks. We thought it was because they were opting for sanity over Dumber Bush. Turns out it was for the bailout, ongoing, and to ensure he'd laissez faire their free market, globalist usury.

The Wall Street protest needs PIZZA!

The #OCCUPYWALLSTREET protesters are pulling their second overnight, anticipating a showdown when traders and bankster return to the financial district on Monday, and especially as international delegates arrive for the UN General Assembly. So you're not there, what can you do? Remember in the thick of the Madison confab, when pizzas arrived courtesy of Egyptians in Tahrir Square? Do that! USDOR Tweets are favoring Liberato's Pizza, who've restocked for fresh orders, but the more eateries who receive calls, the broader will be the demonstration's support. Here's a list of nearby pizzerias, but chose whatever food YOU would like, and don't look for solidarity from corporate chains. 27744

NYPD directive: protect bull market

On eve of threatened activist occupation of Wall Street, NYPD has erected barricades around the stock market's Golden Calf. Yes it's bronze, yes it has horns, and to the banksters it's no false idol.

From Syntagma Square to Wall Street, the people want their money back!

If the Wall Street bankers are going to be made to give the world's wealth back to the people, they'll ask to "you and whose army?" Your dumb lazy ass on the line would be helpful, but no one's waiting on you to press the banks for economic justice. Around the world, youth activists are converging September 17 on the international centers of grand larceny. In New York City, that's Wall Street. 27613

Adbusters says: let US Days Of Rage begin Sept 17, Occupy Wall Street!

IT'S ON. Street kitchens are set to roll into place September 17, one week after New York City observes its remembrance of the still suspiciously inexplicable, commercially branded, "9/11" foundational myth to launch the Global War On Terror, dose of public trauma to ease final steps of Capitalist Shock Doctrine. Yes, #OccupyWallStreet is being called on a Saturday, when the stock market is closed, the better to be encamped when the bell rings on Monday morning. Is it too late to protest the New World Disorder? We'll know #Sept17.

Will occupying the streets Sept 17, Oct 6 and 15 precipitate an American Fall?

"American Fall" would be a pun, yes. A pan-Arabian-like Spring causing the US anti-democracy to tumble, being the objective. The English riots have put a dark spin on what might be Middle America's reception to popular uprising, but mark the dates, because the brass ring nears whether you have the courage or not, and you won't have the stomach for the alternative.   You've probably already sensed the buzz about #SEPT17, campus groups across the country have been bypassing the conventional chaperones to coordinate OCCUPY WALL STREET. Can they do it? Not without your help, and that doesn't mean switching your phone service or knocking on doors to Get Out The Vote. 26248

FOX broadcasting at it again, Gullible Travails and A Modest Proposal

CW57, one of the local DumFox stations, aired an "infomercial" for a seminar, books and training videos on how to take advantage of the housing market crash, telling the Gullible that if they buy the properties ON CREDIT (even though they're targeting people who are already in bankruptcy and facing foreclosure) then sell them to rich real estate developers for tens of times what the houses are currently priced, financed on both transactions with an Adjustable Rate Mortgage by the same investment banks which wrote a blank rubber check for the last time this scam was perpetrated. Now, the paper they hung on us last time, it wasn't the primary cause of the Recession Massive Economic Collapse it was just (normally, as everybody knows, I avoid clich like the plague, but I'm going out on a limb and doing it anyway) the straw that broke the camel's back. 30 straight years of unfunded Reaganomics, the collapse of the infrastructure, such as levies, bridges, roads, other privately owned public utilities, unfunded war-for-profit where those who made the profit from other people dying paid no taxes on the blood money, destruction of the unions, done at public expense and again for private

Wasn’t the Recession simply terrible?!

From the infamous 1931 sign above a bread-and-soup line showing a happy smiling family smartly dressed riding in their new car... Dow Jones doesn't "slide" below 10k... it "plunges." OOPS. The accompanying picture on AP shows a bunch of floor traders looking up like baby turkeys drowning in the rain, with their mouths wide open watching their each individual Apocalypse coming down, drop by drop. Same expression on their faces too. Eat the rich.
