I am so pissed off about what happened to the protesters UC Davis Police Pepper-Spray Seated Students In Occupy Dispute (VIDEO) (UPDATES)
and the absence of any outcry from any of our so called "leaders" against the brutality that's going on, right here, in the good old USA. I am so ashamed that I even voted in the last election. All of this to protect the banks who have hoarded billions in cash and gold, grinding millions of people into the ground, just like the cops with their knees on the heads of the protesters in the streets.
Anyone who has any illusion that we are not in the middle of a depression is either crazy or taking the Prozac. We need more than an Occupy, occupying, any public space. We need a plan to Occupy the Banks and grind them into oblivion. This is not going to happen the way FDR did it when he was inaugurated. He shut down the banks until he got legislation to deal with the mess they made and took the money that they were sitting on and released it into the economy. But it still took a long time for ordinary people to recover. The banks own EVERYTHING and all the politicians who in turn, own the cops. When FDR was elected he wasn't owned by anyone and he kept his promises (with this caveat, leaving African Americans in the dust was wrong! And I don't condone his behavior in that regard) We have to get over the notion that America is a place that is "fair" or "just" and everyone has a chance to pull themselves out of poverty. We also have to throw any idea of "class" out the window. If you think you are middle class you are operating under some kind of idea that you might be doing better than anyone else. We are all in this together, even if you do nothing, look the other way, or watch Fox news. If things continue, with the violent repression of peaceful protests, all to protect Wall Street, it won't be long till we are all living in the street. Even Mr.& Mrs. Middle Class. Banks will take EVERYTHING, they almost have it ALL right now. The only way I can think of, that we are going to win this struggle is through the internet, and with the idea from a couple of posts ago of a "Robin Hacker" someone or some group that can strangle the banks by hacking into them and taking everything they took from us. Then, drag all the bankers, hedge fund whores, the lot of them into the street for their own pepper spray baptism. We need unity in this movement. We need to follow the money the banks took and give it back to the people. As long as we act like there is still some kind of class system in this country, THAT keeps us separated. We will never succeed. Check this out; "A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many, and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks" John C. Calhoun said this in 1836, and still, in 2011 we are no better off! I don't want to live in a country that treats it's citizens in such a cruel manner, both economically and physically. I can't believe not one cop, not one! even tried to stop the cruelty in California, New York, and anywhere else it's going on. The day will come, when we have a country that really is free. But it is going to come at a high price, and the suffering of these students exercising their 1st amendment rights is only the beginning. I am sick with the knowledge that it is going to get so much worse. The First step in this revolution, is to get the banks.
