Mr. President and all members of Government,

Do you want to know why you have the American People in the streets protesting?

It is because you and the rest of the government as well as the Supreme Court the Justice Department, the FBI, the SEC, the CFTC, the Federal police, The Police of Cities States have turned against The People of The United States of America. You have all turned away from your oath of office to serve and protect the Constitution of the United States of America.

The People see that you are directly supporting private interests to the detriment of society.

You have not charged or prosecuted the economic meltdown criminals of WallStreet for their crimes Fraud being right up there in front and waving it's hand for attention.

We the people see this. We also see all of you trying to ignore all of the Occupy movements that are protesting the greed corruption and white collar crime that is running rampant in this country.

The police and other enforcement agencies were set-up for valid reasons with real duties to perform.

They are also institutions power bases. They are just as open to greed and corrupt manipulation as any other institution.

The secret service feels so dedicated to the job right now that they hire hookers while on assignment.

This country is going down the drain and you are all sitting on your hands or are helping it to do so.

If there were a valid third party candidate offered to run for office today.

Guess what? Possible landslide winner?

Read the Constitution read the Declaration of Independence.

You have all forgotten what the job of government stands for.

Most excellent work DKA. Thank you for your effort. This defines the problem so well, and they must realize it so we can make progress.

[-] 4 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Thanks Nevada1.

Hell if we don't try to talk sense to them - who will?

Now they can't say they have no clue as to what is wrong or what we want.

People stand-up - Speak-up.

They have not hauled me away so far if that is what is worrying you.

[-] 3 points by Nevada1 (4789) 2 years ago

Exactly.

Please feel free to elaborate for the viewers at home. {:-])

Every word is right on.

Have not been hauled away yet either. And, the quicker we deal with this deviation from justice, the less likely anyone will be hauled away.

Just what exactly do you have a problem with in the letter " I sent " to the President and the sitting members of the Government of the United States of America?

DKAtoday is mentally ill. Just ignore him.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Do you fear me?

Or are you envious?

If you thought little of what I said I would expect you to ignore it.

But rather than ignore you draw attention too me.

You have a take off of my username.

Yes - you do not think I am important to an honest conversation at all.

It shows.

So - are you a supporter of the status-quo then?

[+] -5 points by ignoreDKAtoday (-2) 2 years ago

Why would anyone fear an anonymous poster or envy an imbecile?

Your incessantly inane postings pollute this forum and waste people's time.

Go away.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I see - " I " am inane. My comments have no meaning. I know nothing.

And so you advertise for me.

There is madness in your method of telling people to ignore me.

There is madness in your concern over me if " I " have nothing to offer.

Cool - can you paste a copy here? I think everyone should contact government and let them know what we see think feel. I am getting ready to send off another today.

[-] 1 points by SparkyJP (1646) from Westminster, MD 2 years ago

Sorry, I didn't save a copy, but it focused on the bill to legalize the use of propaganda on American citizens. I had a lot more issues, but I feel one letter, one topic, has greater impact. I was going to send it to my rep too, but he lied to me when I wrote to him about indefinite detention. He told me it DID NOT INCLUDE American citizens. It's hard to tell the difference between lies and propaganda. Maybe there isn't any.

[-] 2 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

indefinite detention is a violation of human rights citizen or no

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Depends on the propaganda - who issues it. Ads are propaganda and there is little truth in advertizing. Political campaigns are propaganda - plenty of lies and very little substance.

A shared video of Noam Chomsky? Also Propaganda but with substance and truth.

Truth is found in the content or the lack thereof.

Sent this day 6/03/2012 An Open Letter Addressed to The President of the United States of America and to all of the currently seated members of Government. Please Handle and deliver/share as you would a letter delivered by the USPS.

Mr. President and all currently seated members of Government,

The People would like to know if "YOU" know what you are doing?

Why? You Might Ask?

Really?

Does it seem to you that things are peachy keen and all is well? Wake-up!!!!!!!!!!

Get to work!!!!!!!!!!!

How you say (?) - this is an election year! Nothing gets done in an election year! Pardon the french but what a load of CRAP!!!!!!!!! Put an end to the economic meltdown. You can do it - You can do it NOW! How you might ask?

Why does that not surprise me or anyone else in this country of ours? 1st before it all comes crumbling down. Freeze the assets and activities of WallStreet. Separate Investment and lending Banking. Break down the to big to fail. Arrest the economic criminals and freeze their personal assets. What for you say? They have done nothing wrong you say? Pardon the french - But Bullshit!!!!!! Fraud and collusion to commit Fraud are plenty enough reason to make arrests and give them all a Bernie Madoff Makeover - from riches to rags to jail.

You bailed out the wrong people. You should have let all of WallStreet Fail and you should have insured and bailed out their victims. You should have then immediately restored Glass-Stegall. How much in toxic derivatives are still on the market? Still waiting to fail to come due.

You want American Business to succeed you say? And Yet you have free trade agreements which make it next to impossible for American business to compete in their home markets. Green technology investment going bad due to foreign price undercutting. American jobs lost to outsourcing to foreign sweatshops by American businesses avoiding the costs of operating here at home - costs such as being required to be environmentally responsible and accountable. Costs such as paying a living wage to their employees - all of them. Safe working conditions insurance. All because of Profits over People. Pardon the french - But - YOU SUCK.

Oh yeah nice the way you have pulled the teeth of the EPA to allow Oil & LNG fracking to be conducted however the industry wants - endangering our ground water and polluting our air and land. All for Profits over People in a glut market that sees gasoline still at high prices at the pumps. What ever happened to the rules of supply and demand - the fossil fuel industry is exempt?

If you were so inclined you could go on an immediate National Public Works program to put people back to work. Doing what you may ask? How about doing all of the things our energy producers should have been doing all of these years. Upgrade the infrastructure of our power grid. End the world wide pollution and strife caused by Fossil Fuel. Change over to green energy - and no I am not talking about Solar Panels and Wind Turbines - they are a help but not the answer. We have millions of unemployed people and a very sad and anemic job growth. Put these people back to work doing something healthy and prosperous for this country and in extension the world. Train them on the job while constructing on how to operate and maintain these new systems. Include an upgrade to education to ready our kids to enter the modern world of work.

Implement real green energy - LOOK AT THIS - This is where we should be going: Green Energy we have the technology we just need to use it. This is what I am talking about. A clean future to be implemented NOW!

http://www.hopewellproject.org/

http://www.wired.com/magazine/2009/12/ff_new_nukes/all/1

FuelCell Energy http://apps1.eere.energy.gov/news/progress_alerts.cfm/pa_id=600

Hydrogen fuel cell powered transportation. Jobs new industry easily applied to existing transportation manufacturing.

Look at the stand alone self powered house of the hopewell project. The use of Geo-thermal heating and cooling - and no not tectonic/volcanic powered Geo-thermal. Heating and cooling systems that can be placed for individual already existing structures from single family homes to larger building complexes. Imagine cost savings for low income subsidized elderly disabled housing. Think of the relief on a power grid.

Power generation look at the power plant just opened in orange county ( link provided above) it can run on sewer gas LNG gas from land fills. It is versatile and green.

Go a step beyond and look at thorium nuke power plants - clean and a small footprint - and green eliminates a major nuclear waste problem and the fuel can not be used for a nuclear bomb. Perfect for say Iran?

Come on get the people out of the streets and back to work. Back to contributing to the economy. No more homeless - lets put an end to poverty.

Hell even the fossil fuel people are in a good position to make a green transition. Health and prosperity for all.

BTW - what is up with Blackwater - I mean are they not kind of like an illegal military organization? Why do we need them? They are outside of the military chain of command - rogue - and funded by the government? They are mercenaries. They have no good or healthy purpose for a good and healthy country.

Consider these things.

Consider the Declaration of Independence.

Consider the Constitution of The United States of America.

Consider your duty to your people your country.

Then - GET TO WORK.

Thank you,

Dan

thot i would give this a Bumpity bumpers, as it has a lot for those who need to see other sides to 'Other Sides', like 'Blackwater-gate'.. or how Knight Ran the NYSE this morning.. Anyone up for a Total Control of the Wall Street 5? ...Bring Back the Glass Steagall Act ... that should do it.

.. Break the Dam Banks Backs.. Bring back Regulations so they cannot use YOUR Money to Invest in a Rigged Market.

Glass Steagall Act keeps them from INSIDE TRADING.. as they Run the investments .. You have no Chance!

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Thanks for reviving this open letter Marlow ( one of my earlier efforts ) - I am trying to communicate the need for the people to speak-up and speak-out - speak to their government - get involved and reclaim that government. Also to share and circulate good information or good thoughts out to social media for a wider audience to see and to also hopefully share further as everyone who has some social media interaction has a slightly or even completely different set of groups or individuals that they interact with.

I like that the forum installed the social media button on the left margin of this site. Now when you come across something great to share ( posts only ) you just hit the media button you are familiar with while you are in the post that you like..

Absolutely wonderful addition to this forum.

[-] 2 points by Marlow (1141) 2 years ago

TY for the news on the Forum App. and i so agree with what you just mentioned. Debates, a great way to move forward by opening the minds of all.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

My pleasure to share with you.

Now it would be really cool if there was a twitter button ( or other social media buttons ) for tweeting awesome comments found in a discussion thread.

As it is - I will copy the comment link from the forum recent comments list or the Best comments list and then go to twitter and post it there. A little more involved but still very easy to do.

[-] 2 points by Marlow (1141) 2 years ago

I use Twitter-Longer.. it has a tiny url for your posts that are oversized. Need to rest again.. i have 3 dif. chat rooms,2 forums and a Message board that i am behind on. No Rest for the wickedly weary. ;^)

It is possible to put one of the 99% in the Presidency via write-in with enough effort. Get the rich out of office. Kill off the major parties that are controlled by corporations and greed. I started a write in for President, but have not received much support. Some links on how to do this are at my website http://www.occupydc.us. Until the bottom 99% occupy the White House, Congress and the Senate, the corporations will rule. We need someone with enough backbone and support to shut down the status quo.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Currently?

Our best option is to look at voting records and support individuals that have supported the interests of the people and vote out those who have supported interests detrimental to the people, economy, environment, world.

I think we are pretty much screwed in trying to find an alternative for the upcoming Presidential election. Too near.

But we can work on campaigns like the Wisconsin recall and find candidates to support in upcoming elections.

What we need is the participation of the people.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

The one I read in the post. Also it looks like some angry downvoters are out. Your comment posted 1 minute ago was already at zero. I upped it back to 1 for ya.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Yeah the one in the post was from last month.

The sock puppets of the corrupt greedy criminal status-quo don't much like me. Don't worry about the score ( thank you though ) as at least they can not collapse the comments anymore.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Yeah I'm glad they changed the collapsed threads feature.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

It really pissed off the attackers - as they have to confront now although they still do the down vote routine ( nostalgia? ) and they are pretty lame at confrontation.

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

Do you think it's the Obama 2012 people doing the downvoting or someone else? I find any time I post anything negative about Obama is when I get downvotes and when i post negative about Romney I get upvotes. So that's the conclusion I'm left to draw.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

No there are strong supporters for Obama here and a lot of the anti republican feeling is directed at those in office that are standing in the way of recovery.

The attackers often times pretend to be right-wing though I do not believe they care just as long as they get us to fight they also pretend to be supporters of the OWS but they give that away in what they comment on or I should say how they comment.

They especially do not like me - I believe because I try to push support or confrontation of issues and leave party politics out of it.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 2 years ago

And then there are just the people that hate occupy and come here to spread hate. I'm really glad the collapse thread feature is gone. Now the votes dont really matter.

I remember when the site first got up and people created bots to downvote everyone and just about all the threads collapsed for a day I was on the site.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I wish everyone would send an open letter to Government. One letter is easily ignored - hundreds of thousands - not so much. They can not claim ignorance of what is bothering the people - if the people spell it out to them.

[-] 1 points by BoycottCoke (275) 2 years ago

Excellent, I think we need to put pressure on all fronts, and this is one of them.

if they hear it enough they might even perhaps, maybe, that the possibility of a chance exists, they listen.

But if we do not do this, that chance, no matter how faint it is, won't be there for them to listen.

We must act as a body with many parts, where we all use our strengths to the good of the whole body. Once we start thinking and acting that way, good things will happen.

The divide and conquer tactics will be there awaiting to derail us, but we must keep the eyes on the price and keep moving forward.

we are all important in the movement, so let us act in unity, and not let the tools used by those seeking to destroy affect us.

One of them is racism, I see it lurking on some posts, trying to pin a group against another, maybe not as much as before, but still there, so let us be vigilant and not feed into it.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Exactly. The attackers - supporters of the corrupt greedy criminals are here to do just that. Keep us divided.

You might find these of passing interest.

Thank you for the links. I'll read them. It's good to spend a day off doing something constructive, we are going to be on the radio again this weekend, but I'll wait until after the recording. We have info that Coke has people recording all the shows, which is a good thing, maybe something good rubs off on them.

But I know they have the power of advertising, and have successfully shut the doors of mainstream radio and TV, so I don't want to give them any heads up.

The interview with PRN.fm the Danny Schechter show was great, Cat Watters was there with us from OWS. and herd some very interesting stuff from Dan Rather and Bill Still who were also guests in the show.

Very eye-opening, to how the media is controlled by the big corporations.

We have an uphill battle here, not just The Coke 16, but also here with OWS, the media will under-cover stuff and or misinform the people in order to turn public opinion against OWS.

That is why we need to stick together and use all forms of social media available, before they can control it.

Strength is in numbers and every one of us can make a difference. The thing is that some might think they do not count, but they do.

Real change starts with one person, you. After that the world will follow.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (25038) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Yep - do not opt-out as then you are meaningless. The corrupt want us to sit and watch as they tear the world apart.

People are finally becoming aware and are getting past their apathy and are getting concerned and involved.

We make progress - it is hard to see at times - but we are moving forward.

A win in Wisconsin would be a huge boost for morale.

While a loss will show us that we have a very long road ahead of us. But also that we really need to pull together.

I pray for a win in Wisconsin.

[-] 0 points by DJdoodles (-56) 2 years ago

Seems like you still believe in the system. Seems like you need some OWS juice to revitalize yourself brother. The system's broke, and a win or a lose here or there won't change a thing on the grand scheme of things. You need to stick it to the man! Not give him a vote.

This advertisement was paid for by OWS; an anarchic protest for revolution inspired by the Arab Spring protests. We don't play with the system, we fight it!

[-] 1 points by BoycottCoke (275) 2 years ago

I would like to hear more about this you bring...

Kinda like "if a tree does not produce fruit, cut it and cast it into the fire" style...

I must admit, I do not have confidence in this system of doing things that we have.

But I also believe if we, the people, take charge, we can make the system work on our favor. But this will take discipline and sacrifices. Not the type of sacrifices that will include violence, no, the sacrifices I talk about are those that will allow us to take control of the blood of this system.

Think about it, capitalism, the blood of it is capital, therefore if we the people control capital and learn how to channel it one way or another, then we control it.

But I would like to read about your ideas, after all we must hear and consider all things before making decisions. Thanks.

LOL - yeah I know - I have received canned responses before.

I don't expect to hear back any real thoughts or consideration from a real person. I just like to let them know what is up in the world they refuse to see. I believe it does nudge them a bit. I also believe it would concern them greatly if they started to receive hundreds of thousands of letters.

Sent this day 6/10/2012 An Open Letter Addressed to The President of the United States of America and to all of the currently seated members of Government and to all of the citizens of the USA. Please Handle and deliver/share as you would a letter delivered by the USPS.

Mr. President and all currently seated members of Government and to all the citizens of the USA,

1st let me state that these letters I send to you I also send out on social media to all of the citizens of the USA to read as well - and I suppose it could be considered as open letters to the world also.

Anyway today's subject:

Society fails when the people are removed from the process.

It does not matter the social system that is the chosen society model.

Not one damn little bit.

Every single failed society came about through the removal of the population from the process.

Every single failed society was caused by the segments of those societies that had the money power and influence and excluded their fellow citizens.

Societies stopped working for the good of ALL in the society. And then they failed.

OK - I know this is going to start up trouble - so I might as well jump in with both feet.

There has never been a true communist Russia.

Nope the Czars were thrown down by the people and were replaced by a dictatorship that won it's place by telling lies to the population about communal good and all working to support all.

Then they went and siphoned off the fruits of the peoples labor for themselves at the top and left the population to fend for itself in a police state that kept the population from running wild.

China is much the same - ruling elite siphoning off the fruits of it's people labor.

That being said - there is no place - no form of society in the world today - that does not operate on these same principals. Whether it is dressed up as a democracy or socialism or Aristocracy etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc - it is all the same - the few with money influence and power ruling over the masses - largely to their own benefit.

It is - again - when the people are removed from the process - and society stops working for the benefit of ALL society - that then those societies begin to fail.

Hence we come to today and the world wide economic meltdown.

Just one sign of things to come - unless society makes a real change and starts working for the benefit of ALL of the society.

Dear Dan,

Thank you for your message and for sharing your thoughts with us. President Obama’s campaign is being built by the American people, and messages like yours will always help shape it.

President Obama has been fighting for the changes that the American people demand, reclaiming the security the middle class has lost and restoring the basic values that made our country great. Change is never easy; the problems that we've been dealing with over the last three years weren’t created overnight and won’t be fixed overnight.

The Obama administration has been making steady progress – for example, after entering office while the economy was losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month, the President has led 26 straight months of private-sector job growth and created 4 million new jobs – but there is still more work to do. Under this administration, President Obama also:

Reformed health care and restored it as a basic cornerstone of middle-class security in America, ending insurance company abuses and providing 32 million Americans with health insurance for the first time.

Ended the war in Iraq after nine years of combat and brought home our troops, while also refocusing on our real security threats, decimating al Qaeda and bringing Osama bin Laden to justice.

Made college education accessible to millions of students by doubling funding for Pell Grants.

Doubled fuel-efficiency standards, which will save drivers thousands of dollars at the pump and make us more energy independent.

Rescued the American auto industry and saved 1.4 million jobs up and down the supply chain.

Ended torture and the discriminatory Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, and ensured women can get equal pay for equal work.

President Obama knows that putting Americans back to work is job one. But that’s not all: we have to lay the foundation for a real recovery that has strong roots and an economy that’s built to last. America prospers when we’re all in it together, when hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded. The President is the only candidate who knows we succeed when everyone, from Main Street to Wall Street, does their fair share and plays by the same rules.

We thank you for participating in this discussion, and hope that you continue to follow the campaign’s efforts from now until Election Day. If you haven’t seen it already, we urge you to watch the short film The Road We’ve Traveled. It’s about President Obama's first three years in office and the tough calls he made to get our country back on track.

To learn more about the initiatives the President is taking, please visit the campaign website at: www.barackobama.com/record.

Thank you again for your message, and for providing us with your feedback.

Sincerely,

Jim Messina

Campaign Manager

Obama for America

Sent this day 6/08/2012 An Open Letter Addressed to The President of the United States of America and to all of the currently seated members of Government. Please Handle and deliver/share as you would a letter delivered by the USPS.

Mr. President and all currently seated members of Government,

Query: What is so difficult to understand in the concept of health and prosperity for all?

Query: What is so hard to understand about fossil fuel pollutes our environment - The Whole World?

Query: What is so hard to understand that outsourcing work to foreign countries hurts those countries environments at the same time it hurts our economy?

Query: What is so hard to understand about our shrinking work force adding to the depletion of our economy?

Query: What is so hard to understand that not paying a living wage to all workers puts a drain on our social support programs to make up the difference?

Query: What is so hard to understand about the fact that we need to get off of fossil fuel? Pollution and Global warming.

Query: What is so hard to understand about the fact that our fossil fuel companies are in a prime position to make a profitable change over to green technology power and fuel production?

Query: What is so hard to understand about ending fossil fuel dependence also ends Global fossil fuel strife?

Query: What is so hard to understand about partisan politics being bad for all?

Query: Why can't you all follow Bernie Sanders lead and drop partisan politics and adopt addressing issues in a manner that is responsible accountable and are healthy and prosperous for ALL.

Query: What is so hard to understand that creating a universal Health care system would be beneficial for all? The people in the existing field as it stands would be put to work in the transformed system. Universal Health care will still need people to run and maintain it.

Query: Do you think it is a good idea to let things continue on down the toilet?

Query: Do you think that having a growing number of unemployed people and homeless people is a good thing? Are you not afraid that having all of these people out of work or getting more concerned by the day about keeping their jobs and homes is good for the country? Don't you think that by this trend continuing that the people will start believing the truth that you do not work for us anymore? What happens then? What happens when the people understand that they have been tossed under the bus and their involvement in our Governmental process does not mean a damned thing?

Failure of government and it's manipulation by corporations is becoming quite obvious and your lip service is starting to be seen and rejected for what it is.

People are also starting to add two and two properly and are seeing a threat to freedom in your Home Land security programs.

Why can you not all do the right thing? The easy thing? Get to work on programs and reforms that are healthy and prosperous for all? Yes even for the wealthy and corporations though they seem to be unable to see their own benefit in all of this - it is there - benefit for all.

Be a world leader - be a proper world leader - show how it is done to go forward promoting peace health and prosperity for ALL. Start here at home and export it to the World.

Mr. President and all currently seated members of Government,

1st - the truth is getting out and it is spreading. Yes the cat is out of the bag and it's running for it's life. No the ( your? ) MSM did not let it get out. The freedom of the internet ( the peoples only friend these days ) is getting out the truth.

There is no doubt in the public mind ( those who are aware ) that the government has been subverted to do the will of the corporate faux-people even to the detriment of our health and prosperity our environment. The program is becoming well known - Profits over People. What happens when all of our work is outsourced? Where will be the support for the economy? Does not really matter if we are going to engineer our own environmental extinction event.

Among other things the FCC should be looking into the prevalence of false advertizing and issuing fines and alerting the EPA and alerting the American People as well as government as well as the Justice department. WTF good are public protection agencies if they don't do the job? WTF good is government if they support domestic threats?

There is no such thing as "clean" coal.

Mr. President and all currently seated members of Government,

The People would like to know when you are planning to announce the incorporation of the United States of America and announce our new name to the world - The United Corporation States of America.


In case you were unaware of what is going on in the country and the world. Does anyone talk to you guys?

Anyway in case you might be interested - the following is some of what is being talked about across the USA and around the world.


Blackbloc protestors the spawn of suppression and oppression the spawn of tyranny.

Do I like vandalism? - NO

Do I support vandalism? - NO

Can I prevent vandalism? - NO

Can the Government stop vandalism? - YOU BET!!!!!!!!!!!!

How?

Work for the people and not the Corporations!!!!

This is not the Corporate States of America - not yet.

But as it is seen that the Government is just giving lip service to the people and real service to the corporations - No Doubt Violence Will Spread.

Right now it is small groups and also agent provocateurs.

If government - State and Federal continue down this road of service to the Corporations?

As more people lose their jobs or their ability to pay their bills - well even a child can see what lies down that road.

Ask your self this question as well.

Why was this group of vandals - 4 or 5 (?) actually doing the damage (?) - why were they not stopped and arrested? Why was this allowed to continue for what appears to be blocks? For the video coverage?

The number of people doing the damage was very few - the actual whole group was not very large. Where were the police? Getting coffee and doughnuts?

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2012/05/31/MUST-WATCH-On-The-Ground-Coverage-Of-A-Black-Bloc


We are becoming the United Corporations of America.

Welcome to Robo-Cop world. Do you wanna buy that for a dollar?

If we do not unite and stand-up for our rights - we become nothing as a people.

Get ready to receive your bar-code.


The Truth Hurts,

Face it - We are

Thank you for your time,

Dan

Last I checked, the American people weren't in the streets protesting. I did see some cowards wearing masks fighting with the police in a few cities bitching about anything and everything, but I certainly have not seen the American people up in arms about anything. Maybe you need to step back and see just how small OWS really is and then maybe you will understand why you will never get a response to your letter from anyone in DC.
