84 year old activist Dorli Rainey after being hit by police mace.

"Mr. President. It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth - and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those, who having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry, Speech in the Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775

Today's GoFigure infographic tests the claims of the 99 percenters by crunching the numbers on wealth and power.

Sergeant Thomas: "There is no honor in harming these people!" - http://dailybail.com/home/must-see-1-marine-vs-30-cops-marine-wins-soldier-annihilates.html


Bribed by Kochs to intimidate these PEACEFUL CITIZENS, dressed in full military garb, in full violation of POSSE COMITATUS, because THE PATRIOT ACT has always been an attack on our INDEPENDENCE, http://redactednews.blogspot.com/2011/10/drones-to-monitor-us-citizens.html, did you treat the TeaBaggers with such insult?

And the "liberal" media declares these citizens, who are defending our rights, to be jobless bums, having no central purpose, not kowing what the are doing, and yet they are some huge "COMMUNIST THREAT," designed to, "collapse the economy." So, 99% of all AMERICANS are somehow "COMMUNISTS". They refer to this movement as ANTI-CAPITALIST.

No. Let me tell you the message. Let me be clear and out in the open. Let me inform you of the sentiment and the purpose here. This is a protest against FASCISM.

FASCISM - where the fist of dysfunctional MONOPOLIES fills the glove of corrupted government, holding the iron hammer of MILITARISM against the innocent. http://rt.com/usa/news/nypd-innocent-anderson-tavarez-907/ It is a bullying conspiracy of parasitic, sociopathic cowards, versus the dignity of our proud ideals - which is now of our single blood. Our sacred honor calls us to march. Is that so hard to see? http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2011/10/16/nypd-charges-times-square-protesters-with-police-horses/

“When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” - Sinclair Lewis

So long as they wield evil, EVIL does exist. It must be thrown off. These Satanists worship the Grim Reaper, wearing a cloak of black and a golden crown, and they are insatiably driven to torture for power. They are vampires who drink our fear like blood - zombies who eat our sense like brains. http://www.prisonplanet.com/house-bill-would-criminalize-satire-of-tsa.html They ask what we are doing in the streets. It is a common, visceral reaction. http://occupywallst.org/article/A-Message-From-Occupied-Wall-Street-Day-Eight/

We are ANTI-FASCISM. We walk in the grace of justice. In common law. We ARE the law, blind and fair.

What great harm should we trample your dreams?

You are criminal. You are the anti-Americans.

So, Sergeant Thomas took you by surprise?

"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." – JFK

"The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything." - Albert Einstein

‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’ - Edmund Burke

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

- pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
