You Are What The Earth and Its Creatures Need

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.

http://www.salon.com/2011/12/15/obama_to_sign_indefinite_detention_bill_into_law/

OWS had an OCCUPY Brookfield Properties rally yesterday, I gather in the winter garden at the Financial Center.  Both the atrium and Zuccoti Park are owned by Brookfield Properties whose board Mayor Bloombergs long time girfreind, Diana Taylor sits on.  She gets paid $109,000 to attend 8 meetings a year and......dare we imagine..exert influence with the Mayor.   Brookfield currently owes the City $139,000 in back taxes.

A huge police force met the 100 or so Occupy Brookfild…

Occupy Michigan..Are You Out THere? Please Help Defeat Michigan Anti-Worker Bill

http://www.signon.org/sign/oppose-michigan-house?source=homepage

This bill is a prototype of what the far right is trying to get all states to adopt..it disembowels workers comp  ( not that worker's comp doesnt need some work) and takes apart years and years and years of work for fair wages and dafe work places.

It is part of a movement that is waging war state by state against everything we at…

OCCUPY TARGETS DEMS!!! A WISE MOVE!!! TIME TO OCCUPY CONGRESS!!!

Just minutes ago on What's Up With Chris Hayes ( MSNBC)  there was an absolutely fabulous "salon" discussion on Occupy "outing" certain dems whose politics , habits and votes undermine and betray the 99% as much as republican votes.

The "salon" pointed out that its good for reform and cleaning up of the entire electoral process to have OCCUPY performing this role of shining a light on everything that is broken..who is responsible for that..and these kinds of actions by OCCUPY will get…

Why Liberal Elected Officials Support the 1%

This is a fascinating analysis of why two traditionally liberal pro-consumer congresspersons  (both NY Democracts) initiate legislation and vote in suport of the 1%.

http://www.salon.com/2011/12/01/why_liberals_aid_the_1/

It underscores that what we are about here transcends party politics, cannot be and isn't,  represented in a two party system..why occupy should not align with any existing party.

Interested to see if thi sposts..my earlier post on the the very important and instructive Udall Ammendment Vote vanished into the ether..
