I have always been in favor of any kind of protest against government etc, however I am missing the point of the various Occupy Wall Street Groups. Certainly the economy sucks, certainly Obama's administration has proven they are no different than the previous administrations, and certainly vigilante committees should be formed and put to work, however sitting out on a sidewalk saying "The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%." just doesn't get it for me. Maybe a little more violence should be in order.

Maybe if that happens President Barack Obama will praise them as Freedom Fighters the same as he promised the Libyan people that the world will stand with them as they reshape their country following the overthrow by the US backed rioters. Instead the occupiers are arrested for sleeping on a sidewalk and the bankers, Government Officials that allowed it, etc that created the economic problems in the US retire in seclusion to Florida.
I think when Delmar puts into effect the Red Speed Traffic cameras and the Parking Ordinance we should do our own "Occupy Delmar" (OD). Viva La Revolucion - Become an ODer
There are of course those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with guns will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the annunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance, and depression. And where once you had the freedom to object, think, and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillence coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myraid of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent. Last night I sought to end that silence. Quote from “V for Vendetta”
