Occupy Philly

We are the 99%

79 notes &

The issue is much broader. Its whether we want to live in a free society or whether we want to live under what amounts to a form of self-imposed totalitarianism, with the bewildered herd marginalized, directed elsewhere, terrified, screaming patriotic slogans, fearing for their lives and admiring with awe the leader who saved them from destruction, while the educated masses goose-step on command and repeat the slogans they’re supposed to repeat and the society deteriorates at home. We end up serving as a mercenary enforcer state, hoping that others are going to smash up the world.

“I am the 1%. I stand with the 99%. Tax me more!”
Two dozen of us — from the 1% and from the 99% — spent a night in jail for locking arms across Philadelphia’s Market Street Bridge, which urgently needs repairs the city can’t afford.
Good jobs, better city — just need to tax those of us who own more than we need thanks to the labor of working people.

Hahahahahahahahahaha.
I hope the producers at least got some footage of this going on.  I imagine that kid in Super 8 who,  upon seeing that a train was about to barrel through his scene, yells  “PRODUCTION VALUE!!!” at his cast and crew and orders them into  positions to get the train into the shot.
Also: it’s kind of insulting that the City of New York would grant a film permit to the Law & Order folks allowing them to construct an OWS-style “camp” so close to the actual Zuccotti Park site.  Of course, I understand that L&O aims for NYC authenticity.  But seriously, they should’ve thought this through a little more.

This is New York! Happy Friday!

A woman blocks the entrance to Congress as riot police stand guard in Guatemala City, Wednesday Nov. 23, 2011. Protesters are demanding that Congress approve the Ley de Vivienda, or Housing Act, which would allow them to attain legal titles to the lands where they built their homes. (Rodrigo Abd)

I like how her face is all “No fucks given”

No, this isn’t an anime post, and I hope our followers, and the other runners of this blog, will forgive me for posting “politics” here.
This is too serious though, and with 3400 followers, you are my best audience.i *am* sorry if people are sick of hearing about politics. but politics or not, this is fucking scary: fema detainment camps are going live. FEMA DETENTION/DETAINMENT CAMPS. IN AMERICA. ALL FIFTY STATES. this is following the bill passed by the senate in a 93 to 7 vote that the government can, at it’s discretion, arrest any american citizen at any time without trial or reason, and hold them indefinitely. sure, obama says he’ll veto, but with a 2/3+ approval in senate, the veto will be over-ridden. so, they’ve passed the bill to detain us indefinitely, and now they’re activating the detention camps, all shortly after occupy wallstreet starts. google fema detainment camps, google the NDAA bill. google what occupy wallstreet stands for. please please please, research for yourself online what is going on in america right now. this is very very serious, and very very scary. don’t think about this as politics, don’t use that as an excuse to ignore this kind of thing. i’m not asking anyone to agree with me, or declare themselves as a 99%, i’m just asking everyone that reads this post to EDUCATE THEMSELVES on the shit that’s happening right now. read up on what’s going on and draw your own conclusions, but for pete’s sake, EDUCATE YOURSELF.

breaking news (12/06/2011) on FEMA camps going live
also, this alex jones video talking about the fema camps
a message from anonymous about the global situation right now
this is no longer about politics - this is literally about our freedoms & liberties.
AS AN EXAMPLE: say you have a pen pal in iraq, that can be labeled as “suspected terrorism” - off to fema camps you go, indefinitely, no lawyer, no family visits, no guarantee of leaving. 
say you put up a tweet: “i don’t like the president” — bam, suspected terrorism - off to fema camps you go.
 say you…. oh, have more than 6 days worth of food in your house - SUSPECTED TERRORISM, OFF TO FEMA WITH YOU. (yes, the last one is true, along with “missing fingers” or looking muslim, etc, check it here)
IF YOU CAN REBLOG A CAT LICKING IT’S LIPS, PLEASE REBLOG SOMETHING LIKE THIS.  Seriously. This is your life & your freedom. Spread the word, educate yourself, friends & family.
