Keeping it alive and kickin'. The written word is productive and shows direction. Unfortunately, the unrest comes from our protectors.

It does Nancy, thanks, I signed. Those people were entrapped and lead there, there's no way i can see all those people could of heard that mumbling megaphone to know they were breaking any law.The cops i feel are collecting names, like they did at the RNC here and before. They thrive on dividing and will try and manipulate it, it's up to us to keep it in the care of the people regardless of political or social threats and labeling. See you all out there on Oct 5....and Happy World Animal Day!

It was a bit broad in scope, but it did address many of the issues that are of concern to us and it shows that we are dissatisfied in a broad range of economic and social ills.

From reports, it seems there was manipulated, or orchestrated confusion, which led to the arrests. As long as the protests remain as peaceful civil disobedience then the truth will out. Good Luck

As we may keep reading varying opinions in the press,please remember to remember as long s it remains truly so ...Occupy Wall Street is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, ages, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.

Thanks for posting this Kenny. I'm so proud of them and is so good to see the youth standing up with the support of older members of society as well. A mixture of all backgrounds it's Democracy at it's best.

I want to bring attention to those who may come here that on October 6th another planned protest is to be held in Washington, DC and many of them plan to not leave either. This will be supported by many various groups. Please check the link below to find more information on this.


There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all! Mario Savio December 2, 1964

Good to see this being put in writing. Very little info is finding its way out to our corporate press. My guess is that they don't think it is important enough to mention. On the other hand, I got to read about a Tea Party group meeting at a Denny's to put together questions to ask the Super Congress. Our press does have its priorities.

I'm glad for their first press release, but alas I fear, that they could loss all credibility, esp with people facing poverty like myself. I'd hoped that a movement was afoot to lift all peoples, esp the poor, but now I hear OWS is mainly concerned with young people under 30, their future job prospects and their student debt. Tgey want us to forgive their student debt, while we older folks loose SS, and the rest of the Social Safety net. Then I see on MSNBC, the TEA PARTY, and certain Washington and public elites are trying to gain control over OWS agenda. The Tea Party plans on joining the group, gaining influence over their agenda. Right now, my hope for low wage workers, with no helthcare, zero benefits is shot dead!

Do not loose hope John S. these protest are still in their early stages. OWS is mostly started and continued by the youth but we have a major demonstration coming up October 6 called STOP THE MACHINE that will take in more of a rounded approach to things. We need ALL the protests we can get, the young do need to stand up, it is their whole future ahead of them, and as they fix things it will be better for the Elders for they won't want to be chopping our benefits all the time. I doubt if the banks are just going to say, oh forget what you owe us. However, perhaps they can give them more manageable terms to pay back and if jobs that paid living wages came on board that would help them pay their student debts easier.

It's a work in progress John, very early on, so hang in there......and click on my Hot Link in my comment above that states STOP THE MACHINE......check it out!

Thanks Kenny, Chaos for now. Perhaps all the sediment will follow the law of gravity with filtration and other factors added in to some kind of balance. Some adequate, credible,logical & do-able solutions, offered as replacement of the present problems, would expedite some answers and actions. I certainly don't have them. The complexities we have gotten ourselves into is Awesome! I'm awed by nuclear explosions too!

I re-read the list again, I think they did a marvelous job. As I am up in age, even if I don't see it, it gives me hope for my two twentysomething children and my grandchild who is 4 years old. Maybe by the time she get to be my childrens age she'll hve a better opportunity than they are having.

My pleasure, Really. I had such a great time. I'm so glad I got involved. I'll never forget last night, or this past week for that matter and this is just the beginning. Check the link above. His camera man pans the crowd at one point. The guy with the blue bandanna (top of head only) with the big fat arm holding the little black phone/cam is me. Later, time to go to work. Peace

If I had lived nearby I'd been there in a heart beat too. I'm glad you were there, I was there in spirit, I'm one of the many that Michael Moore spoke about that couldn't be there physically. I promoted this early on, I've been checking a lot of the youth sites so I knew it was coming......20,000 they asked for and 20,000 they got. I am so delighted, and let this be the beginning of improvement for us all......the People are Speaking Up.

They had some good Economist there as well speaking to the youth helping them to understand many things that they do. I've been a big fan of Joseph Stiglitz, he isn't the only one but he is a smart man who also won the Nobel Prize in Economics. I know the Nobel Prize has sort of sullied itself with it's Peace prize but in this area they certainly chose well.

Anyone reading this thread I recommend his book FreeFall....America, Free Markets, and the Sinking of the World Economy. He was warning about this a long time ago....but Greedy Ones would not listen. As Michael Moore said, they were not satisfied with filty rich, they had to have it all. I laughted when he used the word Intervention, for I had thought of that very same thing awhile back, these Greedy Ones will not stop until there is an Intervention by the People, just like one would do for addicts that can't stop themselves.

They have used their positions to gamble, but it isn't just their money they gamble it is all of our money and our future and our childrens futures they gamble. They rob us all, they rob our Elders comfort in their later years and rob the youth of their future days ahead. They are the biggest Theives and they need to Stop and if they will not stop they need to be Stopped......the Intervention.
