Ground Zero and Occupy Wall Street: Hope Rises From Ashes

By Josh Marks, published on Nov 6, 2011

A sunny Sunday stroll through Lower Manhattan this past weekend revealed nothing less than an American awakening. And that is not an understatement after seeing the rapidly rebuilding Ground Zero site and the nearby Occupy Wall Street demonstrations at Zuccotti Park. It is appropriate that ground zero of the people-powered movement to reclaim the American dream following the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression is literally right across the street from the newly opened 9/11 Memorial that commemorates the worst attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor.

There is an undeniable... (more)

Apiculture and Occupy Wall Street

By BeeBlogger, published on Nov 5, 2011

...to penguins. The bees, like penguins, move from the center of a warm body cluster, to the outside where it's the coolest, and back in again, with all the girls doing their part in making sure each bee is warmed and each bee is fed.

Meanwhile, at a macro level, here in the U.S. the Occupy Wall Street movement seems to be a spontaneous explosion of how Americans might decide to take better care of each other, realizing Planet Earth is the only hive we've got. I have been too busy to make a trip to New York City, but yesterday I left home early for my evening course, taking the train... (more)

Bank Transfer Day Nov. 5 is Not Associated with Occupy Wall Street

By TonyBerkman, published on Nov 4, 2011

While enrollment in Credit Unions has skyrocketed, according to the Chris Bowers a reporter for the Daily Koss, it would be invalid to conclude that this was the result of the Occupy Wall Street Movement.

The Facebook Page of "Bank Protest Day" which is to be held tomorrow November 5th specifically reads:

"While the Bank Transfer Day movement acknowledges the enthusiasm from Occupy Wall Street, the Bank Transfer Day movement was neither inspired by, derived from nor organized by the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the Bank Transfer Day movement does not endorse any activities... (more)

Yes. Let's Occupy Wall Street

By ranfuchs, published on Oct 27, 2011

Once there was a bank, let's call it C, and the bank would not provide credit for its loyal customer, R, who had been with C for many years. Even though C kept taking R's money, she always had good excuses why she would not yield. “You're not from here,” she'd say. But then R moved here, and two years later, C ran out of excuses, and one day, just like this, she offered R a credit card.

It was blue and smooth, and had diamonds on it, and although R's limit was only $300, he was delighted. Now, he thought, he could build his credit history, and become a true American, with debt, and... (more)

In the Occupy Movement, let's let the next generation lead!

By People Power Granny, published on Oct 25, 2011

...even start payments since they have no jobs.We in the 1960s always wondered when the young would take over the mantle and carry on the fight for social justice in this country and beyond.The time has come. It is today. It is in more than 800 communities around the globe in the form of Occupy Wall Street groups. These people....both young and old....are mad and aren't going to take it any longer.My advice to the other old timers like myself. Let the leaders of this movement be our young people. We have fought many battles, some of which we won and some which we lost. And we can also... (more)

Occupy DC Turns into Tent City

By Josh Marks, published on Oct 20, 2011

...Israelis pitched tents to protest the high housing costs and lack of affordable housing in Israel. Voluntarily living in tents was a powerful symbolic demonstration. Well, the tent cities have come to our shores, at least in Washington, D.C. as part of the Occupy DC branch of the larger Occupy Wall Street movement. But these tents are for more practical purposes -- to protect the growing community of the hunkered-down demonstrators in McPherson Square from the rain and harsh elements as cool fall weather settles in and winter will bring the cold and snow to the nation's capital.

Occupy Wall Street: Stay the Course

By SanityCheck2, published on Oct 18, 2011

Eric Candor (R-Virginia) has his priorities so tuned into big business that he has turned his back on the hard-working MAJORITY of Republicans that are fast becoming unemployed and bankrupt; VICTIMS of Candor’s elitism.

The Republican Party has completely lost touch with rank and file Republicans and is now nothing more than an instrument of the Wealthy. And for the record Eric, I am a 56 year old Republican and sick of the crap. Congress found billions of dollars to bail out financial institutions like Citibank, Bank of America and Wells Fargo.

These companies ONLY SURVIVED BECAUSE... (more)

Frank and Bessie and the Technicolor Comforter

By Bessie Jewel, published on Oct 14, 2011

... political statements, and now defunct bar and restaurant advertisements. It's a tangible flashback of more than forty years of social - and personal - history.

His eyes flutter open and rest on the news which has served as background noise to his snoring. He watches coverage of the Occupy Wall Street protests for only a minute then mumbles, "I thought the war was over."

"That's not what they're protesting. They're pissed at rampant corporate greed and political graft. We're in a bit of a recession. Sort-of a bad one, actually."

"Oh. Well, good for them! At least we're... (more)
