This is pretty sinister, our federal government coordinating the Occupy crackdowns.
Embattled Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, speaking in an interview with the BBC (excerpted on The Takeaway radio program–audio of Quan starts at the 5:30 mark), casually mentioned that she was on a conference call with leaders of 18 US cities shortly before a wave of raids broke up Occupy Wall Street encampments across the country. “I was recently on a conference call with 18 cities across the country who had the same situation. . . .”

"We are the many, you are the few."
I cried this morning as I watched this man sing to Obama and other world leaders and I knew we had our anthem.
Most of us never heard of Makana before today, but as he sang on Democracy Now! my wife said, "He is our Joan Baez." Yes.

Um, we won. You won.
Not completely. The president didn’t outright reject the pipeline permit. My particular fantasy--that he would invite the 1253 people arrested on his doorstep in August inside the gates for a victory picnic by the vegetable garden--didn’t materialize.
This Hawaiian musician songwriter was invited by Obama to sing at the APEC meeting in Honolulu. He sang this song over and over for 45 minutes!
Hi Guys. I have added a new category, Occupy*. The star (*) is for all the various occupation targets, i.e. Wall Street, Los Angles, Oakland, 395 and so on. I did this because I think this is a very important phenomenon.
I have also retroactively edited a few posts to add this category.

Portents of winter and the toothless chatter of flag-draped traitors vies with a fog of lies spread by Koch Brother messenger boys, Reagan nostalgia hucksters, suck-ups in office, Murdoch empire servlings, Banker PR catamites, and Jesus terrorists to occupy the national mind-space with a narcotic Jell-O of half-formed wish fulfillment scams. The nation is hostage to a confederacy of racketeers. Banking. Big Pharma. The Higher Ed / Loan nexus. GMO agri-biz. Fast food. Mandatory motoring. You name it. What a disgrace we are, and the worst of us are the least to know that.
