Greetings and Congratulations to all the Occupy Patriots out there!
It would seem as if Wall Street’s hopes were dashed yesterday.
We’re not going to “just go away” like they would like us to do.
Percussion grenades used to disperse WA protesters
Earlier Monday, longshoremen at the Longview port went home for the day, essentially shutting down the terminal after an Occupy Wall Street demonstration. Several dozen protesters in Bellingham blocked railroad tracks for much of the day.
The International Longshore & Warehouse Union sent home its Longview workers out of concern for their health and safety, spokeswoman Jennifer Sargent said.
Union workers would be paid for four hours of work, the union said.
There were also protests and arrests in Portland, Houston, Denver, New York, and all around 100s of smaller communities yesterday.
Calico Blackie says:
Of course, there were more arrests. More evidence of the militarization of the police forces in the United States.
Why don’t they just drop the masquerade and proclaim themselves to be a branch of the armed forces like the NKVD Secret Police under Stalin in the USSR, or like the SS under Adolph Hitler?

Police remove Occupy Baltimore protesters
Authorities in full riot gear were removing Occupy Baltimore protesters from a downtown plaza where they had been camped out for months early Tuesday morning.
Baltimore City police moved into McKeldin Square at about 3:30 a.m. ET in what appeared to be a peaceful raid.
Calico Blackie says:
Another “knock on the door in the middle of the night,” this time in Baltimore.

Occupy Missoula to stay on courthouse lawn, for now
Those who live and sleep there, most of them in three small tents inside a larger one, are dead set against abandoning the encampment, though there’s a feeling among others in the movement that the option could be constructive.
“This is bringing attention to the issues in our community, something of a dialogue, a forum,” said Todd Jordan, one of the campers. “I’m glad people are talking about it, talking to the county about it. I’m glad the commissioners are talking about it.” The issue of whether the camp should remain can help focus attention on more important issues in Missoula, such as homelessness, Jordan said.
Then, there’s this…….
From The Washington Post
Is Occupy Wall Street late to the game?
With Wall Street’s foibles in the latter part of last decade starting to fade a bit from memory, Americans are increasingly likely to attribute the country’s problems to big government rather than big business, according to a Gallup poll.
The poll shows 64 percent of Americans say “big government” is the biggest threat to the country, while just 26 percent say it’s “big business” and 8 percent say it’s “big labor.” That figure for big business is about as low as it was before the economy collapsed in 2008, and those who say big government is the biggest threat is near a historic high.
Calico Blackie says:
Why are they saying this now?
It’s another obvious attempt to marginalize the movement and spread misinformation to an already sadly uninformed public.
Who do these people think has bought and paid for “big government?”
WALL STREET has bought Washington DC, and no matter how many times we say it, the sheep still chant “big government.”
It’s just Wall Street’s way of throwing us a scapegoat to mask who the real culprits and crooks are in this country.
Some people in the media and on the streets are saying we have a problem with respecting the law. They’re right!
When the laws are unjust, when the rules are rigged to ALWAYS favor the 1%, we have a problem.
Some are saying that our problem is civil disobedience, but that is not our problem.
Our problem is civil OBEDIENCE.
Our problem is the number of people who have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of this government while they orchestrated the systematic looting of our nation’s treasury, the dismantling of our industry, and impoverished millions of Americans all because of this OBEDIENCE.
Our problem is that too many people are OBEDIENT, in the face of poverty, starvation, stupidity, war and cruelty.
Our problem is that people are OBEDIENT while the jails are full of pot smokers and petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country.
That is our problem!
Unfortunately, there is no shortage of sheep in the world that will allow themselves to be led into the slaughterhouse.
From Mailonline in the UK
One in three will go into debt to pay for Christmas presents
One in three Britons will take on debt to pay for Christmas gifts, a survey has found.
Most of those going into the red will spend more than average on their credit card, or use their overdraft to absorb extra spending.
Others will borrow from friends or family, or take out a personal loan.
Oh, and then there was this little tidbit buried deep in the international news:
From The European Union Times:
A grim Ministry of Defense bulletin issued to Prime Minister Putin and President Medvedev today states that President Hu has “agreed in principal” that the only way to stop the West’s aggression led by the United States is through “direct and immediate military action” and that the Chinese leader has ordered his Naval Forces to “prepare for warfare.”
Hu’s call for war joins Chinese Rear Admiral and prominent military commentator Zhang Zhaozhong who, likewise, warned this past week that:
“China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a Third World War,” and Russian General Nikolai Makarov who grimly stated last week: “I do not rule out local and regional armed conflicts developing into a large-scale war, including using nuclear weapons.”

Calico Blackie says:
Our leaders are planning to kill off the surplus population (us) and no-one seems to want to notice or care about it.
WAKE UP PEOPLE! WE’RE BEING LED INTO THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE BY THE 1%.
They couldn’t care less if most of the population is eliminated as long as there’s still enough slaves left in the prisons to do their work and squeeze a profit from.
We’ve got to succeed with our movement. If we don’t, humanity as we know it might not survive.
On that note:
The cop with the pepper spray at UC Davis is Lt. John Pike of University of California Police. 530-752-3989
He should be fired and prosecuted for assault. Make an example of him to show our police around the country what can happen to them if they use brutality on citizens. WE WILL NEVER FORGET, NOR WILL WE ACCEPT A “SINCERE” APOLOGY.
The heck with these brainwashed backers of the 1%. Bless those patriots out there for standing up for us. I’m sure there were plenty of people during Lexington & Concord that preferred to kiss British butt as long as they were safe and warm for now too. Keep fighting for freedom!
You will always have our support from prairiefirenews in rural America.
OCCUPY WALL STREET
We must demonstrate our resolve to protect freedom!
FIGHT FOR OUR FAMILIES AND THEIR FUTURE
We are the 99%
