MLK’s “I’ve been to the Mountaintop” speech speaks volumes to what the Occupiers are going through right now. Stay strong revolutionaries! The time has come for an idea that cannot be evicted. MLK even addresses economic sanctions of banks. When president Obama gave the go ahead to “balance” the Constitutional rights of the peaceful protesters with the cities’ municipal health/safety concerns. ... Read More »

Occupy Wall Street Evicted

I have to give it to all the conservatives who yelled and screamed about privacy issues when the Patriot Act was passed. Ben Franklin said: “Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security.” Privacy is gone. We will never get it back. Partly because communication technology has reached a critical mass. But also because we gave our government ... Read More »

Eviction Tuesday

It has been very aptly said: “You cannot evict an idea.” What I’ve observed through the night and through today in Manhattan reaffirms my belief that the symbolism of Occupy Wall St. is far more important then the physicality of it. We live in a very non physical time. Credit card transactions, arbitrage, virtual real estate, non-places (that look the ... Read More »

Anyone who is online spread the word. NYPD is calling for the NY national guard on the scanner. Please call and respectfully demand 1st Amendment ... Read More »

Class is the New Race

  The first question the media asked when the Occupy Wall St. Movement started budding at the end of September was the racial demographic of the protesters. As if the litmus test for the legitimacy of an issue is the amount of minorities involved. This has become a real problem especially with so called liberal circles because we have been ...

Being Heard Without Saying a Word

From the moment I woke up yesterday I closely watched the weather in anticipation of glorious thunderstorms to wash over Central Oklahoma. Unfortunately, the storm I had been tracking was slow moving into Oklahoma City but was active none the less. The news reported of a tornado touching down in the southwestern part of the state in the late afternoon. ... Read More »

Read this and you will see what the movement is and why every single one of you should be a part of this revolution. Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is a metaphor.
