Occupation Wall St: Week 4. What they don’t want you to find out…

What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the baby boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world.

They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you top ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. I think they thought you were too dumb to notice.

Indeed, I thought they had won.

But I watched you occupy the capital of Wisconsin. I see you today as you occupy Wall Street. And I see a spark, a glimmer of the glorious new age that is yours. A changing of the guard, a guard that has stood for entirely too long and needs your young legs to take his place.

I watch you turn away from what is easy and stand up for what is right. I see you understand we as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. I see you wise beyond your years. And I am proud. Give ‘em hell, kids. You are beautiful.

Together we are strong.

Finally America begins to revolt against the moneyed classes. But will the rebellion actually lead to any changes?

Occupy Wall St- Rebel with a cause; suddenly youth who don’t care about celebrity and fame, but will this consciousness have legs?

What do you think of this picture? Occupy wall st or bust? Day eleven…

In search of a revolution. The shifting tides of democracy.

So you say you want a Revolution…

    you are blinded by dumbfounded politics and the social conditioning of your government to think that the left and the right and all that junk is real. there is no difference between republicans and democrats, they all share the same goal: to push Keynesian economics and play around with their easy money-making game dubbed “wall street”.
    Wake up, turn off the tv. the media is controlled and funded by the government, you hear what they want you to hear. They pull you deeper and deeper into their system that no longer works.

  2. Really? REALLY? You’re happy about these yammering clowns, these union-funded, Democratic Party beloved hippie public defecating distractions? What do you think about the Tea Party? Would love to know.

    This is not Occupy Wall Street so much as it is the Bowel Movement, as we’ve seen. After all, taking a rule of the far left — which this is SO CLEARLY driven by — one or several idiots represent the whole. Just as one crazy creep allegedly appearing in a crowd in any given SANE, peaceable, organized and non-defecation Tea Party rally makes the entire movement racist, a pack of “tea baggers”, a few morons crapping in public make this the Bowel Movement.

    Do tell: what’s the Tea Party if not the rational, change-the-system from a place of stubborn American tradition. And what is this if not the directionless few drooling on themselves as they flick their fingers in the air like a pack of cult members, repeating each others’ words as if The Borg?

  3. For many years as far back as I can remember. My father (God rest his sole) who worked 3 jobs to support and raise his family. Used to say “The rich get richer off the backs of American workers” Time for this to come to an end and voices of the people need to be heard!
