Mayor Bloomberg is angry with the OWS folks claiming that they are trying to hurt people in the banking industry that make only $40k-$50K/year. That is patently untrue. those folk, their managers, district manager and the accountants are not the ones the 99% are after. We want the top 1%, that portion of American population that pulls all the strings that control the rest of our lives.
Mayor Bloomberg you miss the point. This is not about working people but a machine made up of the mindsets of an insignifigant few.. One in 100. What gives them the right to rig our lives?
Bloomberg you are part of that 1%: What gives you the right to control a shop owner’s future? Do you really need the money?
The question to ask yourself is: “How much is enough?”.
You can’t take it with you when you die so I assume it is about a feeling of Power Over. Power Over is a fallacy. Power from Within is the true strength, and obviously you are severely lacking in that faculty.
Mr. Mayor, you will find that those rabble, that mob you denigrate is operating with Power from Within. They will win, not tomorrow, maybe not next month, but they shall win. And you and yours shall become nothing but footnotes in a History tome and scattered as bits of dust on the trash heap of Time.
Yes, I am part of the 99%, and I DO believe.
as of late. The house rebuilding, Bett’s illness/death and many months offline whilst in a Rest Home.
I need a new focus and cause. It has shown up over the last three weeks: the Occupy Movement and the 99%’s. I believe these are the most important set of events in the Progressive mindset. It is far past time that the back of the Money Beast be broken and what is left chained so that it never again rises up and endangers the lives, liberties and the pursuits of happiness of the majority of “We, the People”.
This gal loves a good fight. Blessings!

(No, there will be NOLA and swamp stuffs here too. This place is my home and my heart.)
And what is it? It’s a SPINE!
Democratic Underground ran across this report.
This answers many questions most of us have had concerning mental health probs in our country.
Gentle Readers, I just watched the Inauguration of the 44th President of our Nation- Barack Obama. His speech moved me to tears in that his words signaled the beginning to a new Progressive shift for our society as well as a validation of the Social Contract.
Today I witnessed the most important event in my life. As a Progressive I was beginning to lose hope that our Country could get back on the path that was created in 1776. I was getting to the point that I would never live to see this day, but it did come… “Day shall come again.” Tolkien.
When George Bush entered the helicopter to take him away from D.C., Betts popped a bottled of champaign and we toasted the dawning of a New World.
Truly this is a Blessed day.
I can’t fucking wait to get that fuckmook Bushite out of office and see him hide away in his posh new Dallas enclave.
(I also wonder if the Feds will allow Cheney to keep his bunker since his coffin and grave dust is there.)
This is the Dawn of a New World-
“Powell, making his 30th appearance on “Meet the Press,” said he does not plan to campaign for Obama. He led into his endorsement by saying: “We’ve got two individuals — either one of them could be a good president. But which is the president that we need now — which is the individual that serves the needs of the nation for the next period of time.
“And I come to the conclusion that because of his ability to inspire, because of the inclusive nature of his campaign, because he is reaching out all across America, because of who he is and his rhetorical abilities — and you have to take that into account — as well as his substance — he has both style and substance, he has met the standard of being a successful president, being an exceptional president.”
Powell said that he is “troubled” by the direction of the Republican Party, and said he began to doubt Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) when he chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate.
“Not just small towns have values,” he said, responding to one of Palin’s signature lines.”
So mote it be.
