OWS, You May Be Getting Ratf*cked

OWS, You May Be Getting Ratf*cked

Make no mistake: yes, there is an anarchist element at work within the OWS organisation. It’s they who are pushing the “voting-isn’t-worth-it-we-can-take-control-by-other-means” meme; but they are being aided and abetted, perversely, by ratf*ckers, paid for and financed by various GOP-supporting conservative organisations – probably even the Koch brothers.

Occupy’s Rebuttal to Right-Wing Media Critics: The Tea Party’s Violent ‘DontGo Movement’

So, in the face of the Occupy Wall Street protests – which is basically, like the tea party claimed to be, simply fed up with the status quo – one would think that the right-wing media would herald its arrival, just like it did the Tea Party in 2008.

Herman Cain’s Love Potion Number 9-9-9

Leaving aside the fact that, yes, the tax code desperately needs some kind of reform, a closer look at Cain’s ‘simplistic’ proposal not only reveals a staggering lack of real tax code knowledge, if passed, it would end up being the greatest tax increase for middle and lower income earners since the federal income tax was introduced, while simultaneously ushering in the single greatest tax break for millionaires and corporations.

My Time at Occupy DC And Reflections Back In Madison, Patriot Act Used To Harass Disabled

My Time at Occupy DC And Reflections Back In Madison, Patriot Act Used To Harass Disabled

I look back on all the times, all the marches, all of the wonderful people I met along the way and the only thing that comes to mind is hope.  The people of Wisconsin have already shown how it’s done back in February and March, but as I talked with people who were in it for the long haul and others who were bouncing from occupation to occupation, I realized one thing.  The rest of the country gets it.

Gotcha questions? Nooooooooooo!!!

Occupy Wall Street: Don’t Believe Just What You Hear In The Media

Occupy Wall Street: Don’t Believe Just What You Hear In The Media

When you arrive, check your pre-conceived talking points at the curb, but do engage in respectful discourse. Observe and participate in a general assembly.

Occupy Wall Street: Tea Parties For Smart People

Occupy Wall Street: Tea Parties For Smart People

A surge of re-energized American citizens positioned in cities across the country are carrying out the grassroots ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement (or the ’99 Percent Movement’) with an intelligent and provoking agenda that invokes real patriotic citizenship – much unlike the backwards Tea Party protests that have done little more than pervert our founding ideals while hidden under the guise of Americanism.

Private Education: Just Another Scam

In the light of everything going on with the Wall Street protests, the economy, etc., there is another issue, admittedly smaller, that needs addressing. The American university system, despite the high quality of education you can achieve, is a scam.

Don't worry! We'll protect you from the mean old conservatives!!!
