Occupy That!

Occupy squares, parks, streets, neighborhoods, cities;

Occupy churches, mosques, synagogues, temples;

Occupy driving rain, wind, snow, biting cold;

Occupy exhaustion, aggravation, stress;

Occupy frustrations, doubts, fears, jeers, tears, cheers;

Occupy lamestream, sold-out-media lies;

Occupy water cannons, flashbangs, tear gas;

Occupy batons, beatings, bullets, bloodshed;

Occupy the kleptonomy's police-state;

Occupy lying, venal…

Moral Imperative

This was posted on Occupy Portland's Facebook page earlier today.  Marianne Williamson does an unbelievable job of laying out what I feel is the moral imperative behind Occupy, what's at stake, and what it means to truly follow the principles of nonviolent resistance...and so much more.  Well worth the lengthy listen.

Criteria for evaluating corporations and our government


This Economic System is the inhumane Corporate BEAST that actually provokes the making of WAR, and military domination, for the making of PROFIT!

This is the same Corporate BEAST that vandalizes our Planet Earth and is indifferent to the anguished cries of its inhabitants!

Listen Up Corporations! The Ethical People of Earth will begin now to teach YOU how to behave ethically; your shameful…

"Occupy Congress And Change The World!"

Put together a slate of candidates that are honest people drawn from the occupy movement's ranks and elect them to Congress. The first order of business is to take big money out of federal politics. Pass the Fair Elections Now Act (S. 750 and H.R. 1404). A law where political candidates for federal office would raise a large number of small contributions from their communities in order to qualify for Fair Elections funding. Contributions are limited to $100.00. Strictly voluntary by the…

The Occupy Railroad

Thanks to a blog "Linked To The Land" by a friend of mine in the A New Gaia community (also on Ning), my receptivity was opened as I posted in comment for her blog.

However, your quiet benevolent thinking Judi, about community has led me in a "new" direction today.  I read this blog over brunch after yoga.  Had I been…

It's Time for the 99% To Occupy the Occupy Movement

Many of us Northern Californians are familiar with the wise-cracking, wise-guy affectionately know as Swami Beyondananda, aka Steve Bhaerman, and his lovely consort Trudy Trueheart.  Steve's ability to lighten up weighty subjects has brought relief to many a soul.  Thanks for keeping the light lit,…

Last Hurrah - Me, Joe and the REAL 99%

This is my farewell gift to you all. I believe I've given all I have to give and there are a number of you who will be glad to see me gone. May you get what you wish for! 

But here's a question that may be more important than any other asked here: Who the hell are you to think you speak for the 99%? From what I've witnessed, there's some good-hearted and open-minded souls and a number of those who think they've got it all figured out and are above and beyond (more "evolved") then the…

A Litany for the 99% & For Occupy Cafe


To the Creation I live within; to the creation that lives in me     

                                                                                    Open My heart

To the rhythm of tides and seasons; to the rhythm of my own blood   

                                                                                   Open my heart

To the footsteps before mine in the sand, of peoples and creatures

To the footsteps after mine in the…

"The Occupy Wall Street movement has real potential to be a part of getting us there."

I am not all that great at putting concepts into words sometimes.  Maybe my brain is just too full of school-there is no space left over to really articulate what I see, think, and feel.  Fortunately for me, there are folks around who are especially talented at doing just that.  This is a post written by…

In Manahattan Occupy 2 : 30,000 with the faces of the 99%!!!

Very exciting to see the  diversity that is the 99% in the faces of those marching this morning from Union Park to Liberty Plaza.  

The unencamped Occupy now has a face of inclusion that it never had before.

WE are not a Political Action Party. WE just want what's considered right by 100% of people!

This has nothing to do with the Tea Party. It's the WE, Party and it appeals to 100% of the people, 100% of the time. The …

Message from Minister Pepper Sprayed in Seattle


America, America, my country ‘tis of thee,

Sweet land of liberty

Of thee I sing

America, oh America

America the Beautiful has fallen.

You could feel the tension and raw energy crinkling throughout the air as the marchers once again began their journey into downtown Seattle.   The Occupy Movement is the prophetic voice of God calling out to the nation to “repent” and turn from its…

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More

Leadership Ecology

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
