Do you have any information on Occupy Columbia MO? My friend and I have heard some buzz about it but it doesnt seem like anything has happened yet. Who would I contact? You all are doing it great job it sounds like. I hope the number of protesters is growing!!!!! The Oppressive White Rich who have been exploiting people ever since are country was in power we will have to concede to equal collective rights for all people and true democracy.
leave race out of this
America is not a democracy it is a REPUBLIC.
A touch racist there Mike – cool that sort of rhetoric. Look at the colors in the current political candidates and the boardrooms and executives of the major corporations and banks and you will see all colors and both sexes.
I have had a 9/11 workshop scheduled for Saturday (10-15) from 3 to 6 (by putting it on the column) for two days and it has not appeared here yet. I have to wonder whether it will be “moderated” out of existence.
Sometimes, the older you are the deeper you can see past the media. I’m 68. I have seen the Post-Dispatch change from a decent newspaper to what it is now.
Here’s what you can see:
1. If you’re working, or on retirement, you can see that you can buy less and less for nominally the same amount of money.
2. If you’re out of work, you will find it extremely hard to make as much money at your new job, if you get one, as you did at your old job.
3. You see and hear of others you know who are in the same position.
4. You know that wealthy people continue to get wealthier, no matter how the companies and institutions they run do.
5. You know that the country has been at war for ten years and millions of people have been killed because of what, we are told, 19 foreigners did ten years ago.
6. You know that when campaigning Barack Obama said, “I will end this war, and you can take that to the bank.” You know that this statement has been forgotten as if it were irrelevant.
7. You know that his campaign was based on the promise of reversing the policies of the Bush administration. Under him, those policies have been strengthened. The president and his friends now watch people being executed at his command, and those subject to summary execution include U.S. citizens. After promising an end to secrecy, secrecy has increased.
8. You know that social services are increasingly diminished under the excuse that there is no money to pay for them, while the fact that the money that used to pay for them is being spent on Halliburton and Xe is ignored as if it were irrelevant.
9. You know, if you have read _The End of America_ by Naomi Wolf, that the pattern of events she describes was initiated by 9/11, and if that event was subject to suspicion, then the cascade of subsequent events it started, including your lack of purchasing power and the endless war which causes it, is just as suspicious.
10. If you have a smidgen of curiosity, you will wonder how 2 airplanes could cause 3 steel and concrete buildings to turn into dust in seconds, and why Obama’s organization spent millions on legal fees to keep his past private.
