RISE UP BY SITTING DOWN AND PROTESTING
As I sit and blog, I am protesting. And I am hearing protest outside the window at 53rd & 7th in Manhattan. Hundreds of marchers have convened on the Sheraton while Obama is in town. For many reasons, I am not going to quit my protest and join theirs. So much for their claim that they are the 99% - of what? And what are they accomplishing? How many of them are wearing hemp? Just about 0%; but how many of them support violence? 31%, one poll says. And how many of them even know the name of their reps and have written a letter to them?
After spending time with this bunch of arrogant rich kids - many may not know this, but far from being poor the leaders are so filthy rich that they sleep in $700-a-night hotel rooms - I came to the conclusion that it would lead to nothing. Journalists became very opinionated, either for or against them, with outlandish claims made on both sides, the New York Post in an all-out war with the New York Daily News over this, but did any of the reporting do any good? I talked to journalists about the hemp issue while I was there, but the journalists wanted outlandish images, and I ahd to challenge one by asking if he was an American and if so, would he not want to report on something that would make a difference to Americans? Hell no, he just wanted weird images of so-called protesters. To hell with America was the press response.
Ron Paul's bill for hemp farming in the US was not once discussed by any of these journalists or rich kid bagels-n'-lox eating louts. Or the poor louts among them who slept rough and defecated on people's doors. Instead, they ran around and many of them, including Joshua Fellows, broke the law in the most hypocritical of ways. The 'peaceniks' actually managed to get arrested for having unlicenced handguns. Great. Welcome to NY, you're here to save the world. But getting a licence for your gun, or even for you car, is beyond your capabilities.
What would happen if this lot were granted power? Things are bad. And they would change. For the worse.
So anyone reading this who thinks the OWS is out to save you, please do not waste your time with them. Instead, join the real protest and write a letter to your reps in support of hemp and Ron Paul's hemp bill - making sure you point out that this would give jobs to Americans.
Jobs is something the OWS does not seem to get their heads around. It's not about $700-a-night hotel rooms for spoiled idiot organisers, it's not about illegal guns and driving dangerously and illegally, it's about the economy stupid...and hemp is a viable part of that, well worth protesting about. Please do; but in a fashion that is effective.

OWS is a joke, but as with most ineffective people or movements, the media is there to make them into heroes.

OWS ought to get behind the hemp bill and support Ron Paul. Actually everyone ought to do this.

OWS? They took over a man's house in NYC who was jobless and facing foreclosure. They are worse than the bank, which did not take the man's house away. All this they claimed was their good deed.
They are a sick bunch of idiots.

Yeah, they locked out the poor guy and told him this was their contribution...

Carlos said...

the latest on that is the OWS had to leave when the guy called the cops...now they left NY as they are not getting free pizzas and lots of attention.
The OWS did nothing for hemp.
Nothing. Good riddance, and I hope
the cops get them out of DC now.

If anyone wants to make change, sign the petition at www.minawear.com/about-us/

Minawear has been around a lot longer than OWS, which promised to return, but where is it?

Hemp is a real issue, it means jobs. OWS should have endorsed it but they were a bunch of spoiled rich kids living in $700 a night hotel rooms.

OWS was a joke. It accomplished nothing but the press loved it since they had an easy story with lots of photo ops, including millionaire celebs
