Occupy the Koch Brothers - and Stop the American Nightmare
Isaiah J. Poole, Campaign for America's Future: "The very name of a Washington conservative conference this weekend is the height of subterfuge. It's called the 'Defending the American Dream' conference, which is not about defending the actual American dreams of most Americans (the focus of our own 'Take Back the American Dream' conference), sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, which is not an organization that promotes what is needed for broad American prosperity."

In America the people have no voice whatsoever. The sheeple are content to be protected by "security," porno-scanners, warrantless wiretapping, indefinite detention, and sexual groping. To carry on the hoax "war on terror," the US government has elevated itself above the law.

Tackling Wall Street Criminality
Inside Job should be required viewing for all media skeptics who question the rationale behind OWS. The film lays to rest the myth that the 2008 economic collapse was merely a "perfect storm" of regulatory failure, greed and conflict of interest. Not only does our current economic mess stem from blatant Wall Street criminality, but the IMF repeatedly warned Bush and the Federal Reserve of the need for urgent intervention.

Occupy The Treasury! Reclaim The Monetary System With The Need Act - HR 2990
HR 2990 - The National Emergency Employment Defense Act of 2011 could be the catalyst for a global renaissance. The NEED Act eliminates private control of the monetary system and restores the government's Constitutional authority to create money without creating debt and spend it into circulation to rebuild the productive economy.

Suddenly, the United States looks like the rest of the furious, protesting, not-completely-free world. Indeed, most commentators have not fully grasped that a world war is occurring. But it is unlike any previous war in human history. Their enemy is a global "corporatocracy" that has purchased governments and legislatures, and plundered treasuries and ecosystems.

A new report about companies' finances won't just enrage you -- it'll make you run to the nearest protest... "Most Americans can rightfully complain, "I pay more federal income taxes than General Electric, Boeing, DuPont, Wells Fargo, Verizon, etc., etc., all put together.' That's an unacceptable situation."

Yesterday Occupy Oakland shut down the nations 5th busiest port w/ 3,000 protesters at the port gates. In the AM hours protesters entered a nearby vacant bldg. declaring it part of their encampment. This action brought riot police w/ batons hurling tear gas canisters. Some were thrown back at the police. 60 arrests were made. In Oakland though calm returned an uneasy truce remains between the police and the protesters.
